A tin of Wallace Flake and a tin of F&T Cut Virginia Plug.

I love it. It is just right for summer and perfect out of the tin. I only have FVF to compare it with and think it better (and sweeter). I do not have a developed palate so I can't detect toppings or what have you but to me it is almost perfect.

Nice, I really like Blackjack as well as you said moisture is perfect and it smokes wonderfully, somehow I find it to be very smooth for a straight VA!

Revisiting one of a few tins with a couple years of age. Am letting it "decant" for a week or so before enjoying it. They say this is a blend originating all the way back in 1848. Wowzer. 170 years ago.

Still easing my way into decanting a tin of 2 year aged Robert McConnell Scottish Flake. So many tobaccos. So little time

You said it. I counted my jars last night that I'm smoking through and have 40 open. I didn't realize it was that much!
