Dry aromatic flake, slightly sweet tasting and a pleasure to smoke all day, smokes dry and is of medium strength. This tobacco is not highly aromatic, so it's suited to both experienced and novice smoker.

Im sorry but this blend has changed into something i no longer recognise. Too bad it has not improved. It is just aweful now, what a horrible end to a legendary blend.

This is a very typical African has that quintissentially dry, rather spicy, aroma that seems to breathe out the hot African sun.

To my taste buds, African tobaccos all share a common base of flavour, completely different to the American grown varieties. Some, Malawian for example, have a heavier edge to them. They are more burnt, have an aftertaste and can give me a headache. Van Eerkoms Dry Aromatic Flake isn't like that at all though. Like nearly all the African pipeweed I have tried, it lacks the fine nuances of flavour that American VAs have; but none the less it is a very pleasant tobacco to smoke. It doesn't burn the mouth, it delivers a satisfying amount of Vitamin N and plenty of satisfaction.

As Mo said, this comes pretty dry and is very easy to rub out and load or you can just cram it in!
