I've never smoked a lighter Virginia flake. Unusual Cavendish presentation with some kind of added flavor that I cannot identify. Just enough to sweeten the leaf lightly. It burned fast for a flake and one can smoke multiple bowls in succession without palate overload. Another natural blend from Nat.
This is a mild VA flake. If that is what you are looking for, then this might be fore you. However, considering the wide range of tastier, more flavorful VA flakes available, Center Cut Blend will probably spend most of it's time sitting unsmoked in your tobacco stash.
A decent VA flake that is easily rubbed out. It would probably improve with some drying, because I found it burned hot and frustratingly moist. It only needed one light, as noted in an earlier review, despite long pauses between puffs. This is clearly not a straight VA; instead, it has some light flavoring that gives it a sweetish flavor. Toward the end of the bowl, the flavors tend to balance out best, whereas the sweetness was almost too overt for my palate during the first 3/4 of the bowl.
If you like very lightly flavored aromatics, this one might be for you.
When I think Nat Sherman, I think ?aromatic?. I was quite pleasantly surprised with this offering.
Center Cut is a Virginia based flake that brings with it a very nice Virginia flavor. The huge flakes rub out easily and there doesn?t appear to be any nasty ol? propylene glycol on it. It dries quickly.
Rubbed out or not, this blends smokes extremely well. It lights well, and smoking to the bottom of the bowl from the charring light is not uncommon. It burns a bit faster when rubbed fully, but that is about the only difference. It responds well to DGT - not dramatically, but there is some increase in intensity.
I?m glad I tried it ? I think I?ll keep it around for a while.
