    The Brown Flake is another good one that's hard to find, smoking a bowl now in a cob. Lovely stuff, need more.

    HH vintage Syrian in my waist stack after a fine light dinner of soft stink cheese and French bread with Pinot Noir to wash it all down.

    Hello,

    I bought my Rich Dark Flake at Choice Select in York last year: https://www.choiceselect.co.uk/shop/

    As to the Twists, I agree with Chris that size doesn't matter for the taste, and even when you buy the sliced version (looking like ribbon cut rather than coins of a curly cut), it's the same taste. Just for me it's too strong for a straight smoke, or even 50/50 mixed with Virginia. It's a condiment that I add like Perique or Latakia.

    As to the black vs Brown Twist, the Samuel Gawith tins say the following (my translation and emphasis):

    Brown No 4
    An absolute rarity: Brown Dark Fired tobaccos are spun into a rope by hand and matured in presses for four weeks. Strong in flavour.

    Black XX
    An absolute rarity: Dark Fired tobaccos are spun into a rope by hand and soaked in vegetable oil for 12 hours. Afterwards baked in the oven for 24 hours. Strong in flavour.


    Just finished breakfast and smoking FVF with Perique in a Peterson Aran billiard.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Good morning to you all.
    First smoke of this sunny Friday; McConnell's 'Pure Orient' in my M.A.N. B&W Diesel Stanwell no. 19 - Royal Briar.
    I have a morning appointment at the hospital to have my heart scanned and I just heard DW mumbling something, that sounded suspiciously like "...having your head scanned while you are there".
    A DW with a sense of humour, is a gift. Sometimes.
