    Is Ogden's Bulwark Flake still readily available in the UK? My Uncle used to smoke this all the time and I remember liking the aroma. I would love to hear all about it from those hear that smoke it. Any other flake similar or is it singularly unique? Any input would be appreciated!

    I smoke it quite a lot, although it is now 'Bulwark Cut Plug' - from G&H, and I get it loose (or bulk - as you guys call it!) from the jar at my B&M. It is a good, strong satisfying smoke, in the Condor, Dark Flake style, and quite faithful to the original recipe. Sadly the name Ogdens - like so many of the other historical manufacturers, is just a meaningless logo on tins and pouches, as apart from the G&H, SG and Jermyn ranges, everything comes from mainland Europe, or Scandinavia now.
