Here's the description of Rum Flake:
This sounds suspiciously familiar to a fan of Hyde Park, the description of which follows:A very rich, sweet fully flavored blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured tobaccos in the blend - over 40%. Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from Burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a rich, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum.
I'd order an ounce or two of Rum Flake to be able to compare, but, as mentioned above, it's sold out in bulk and tin. I did sign up to be notified whenever they get it in stock again.Peterson's Hyde Park is a traditional English blend of bright and dark fired Virginias, sun-cured Indian and Burley tobaccos. This luxurious smoking experience is achieved by the addition of rum and maple sugars to pressed mahogany tobacco.
Anybody here have any experience with both blends?
