    2013 vintage GH&Co Brown Flake (unscented) in a G-grade Upshall dedicated to the best brown flakes.

    Of interest, I have always thought this blend to be an excellent example of the genre, but with five years' age on it the result is sublime! To my taste this beats BBF, Wessex BVF, and even eclipses Germain Brown Flake (and that is saying something!)

    Good day to you all! Iím having a late-morning smoke with Hearth & Home Signature Virginia Spice in a Solvang clay.



    What a wonderful and somewhat underappreciated blend this is. I find that the taste of the cigar leaf is more pronounced when smoking this blend in a clay or meerschaum pipe, but not enough to be intrusive. Sometimes, I prefer the harmony of flavors that briar brings, but at other times I enjoy the distinctiveness of each leaf. Happily, I can have my pick as it suits my mood.

    2013 vintage GH&Co Dark Flake (u/s) - my habitual after dinner blend - in a dedicated 1932 Dunhill Shell.

    And I swear to you on my scented (Ed. Shurely "sainted") grandmother's grave that there is nary a trace of Lakeland Essence in this ambrosia.

    Rattray's Old Gowrie (2013) in a 1985 Dunhill HT Collector, dedicated to straight VAs.

    I bought this pipe some years ago from Alan Chestnutt in Northern Ireland. I look after it very carefully.

    Last bowl of the day is the customary GH&Co Dark Flake (2013) in a 1925 Dunhill Shell (also bought from Alan Chestnutt's shop), one of four pipes dedicated to DF/DP (three Dunhill Shells and a Stanwell):
