    Good Evening! It's 80°, humid, and partly cloudy on the western horizon as the sun is setting here. Janet and I are out on the deck after running away from the Houston vs Cleveland game on TV. Houston was leading 6-1 in the third inning so we decided to just let the game go for now. Currently smoking a bowl of Solani 633 in the BBB billiard with a glass of cold water on the side. 💧

    Good Saturday Morning! It's 71°, very humid, and with a partly cloudy sky here. The first pipe of the day is Bayou Morning Flake in the MM Mark Twain cob and there's a fresh mugga coffee on the tobacco table.

    I smoked the 1999 McClelland #12 late into the night and didn't get to the aged tin of Solani Aged Burley Flake until this morning. My first tin and first smoke of Solani 656. I've sat on this tin since picking it up at an NASPC show in 2017. This morning, I cracked the tin and was greeted by beautiful dark flakes and a heavy fermented scent that oddly enough smells like stewed tomatoes and some mysterious seasoning. The flake rubbed very well and produced perfect dark brown burley ribbon of a couple shades. It needed 15 minutes of airing out and off gassing. The taste is very rich and delicious but I do tire of the blatant misrepresentation of natural tobacco. This is cased, has humectant, and is full of added sugar without a single doubt. The manufacturer outright lies and states that it's "A very natural blend with absolutely no additives or flavors - a true burley blend." This is a demonstrable lie and should not be legal to say. All said, it's a very tasty burley mixture that's sweetened with sugar and possibly some faint and aged-off cocoa notes but it's not natural burley flavor all the way, which is fine, just don't lie about it. Anyways, it's been said that this has now changed and I'd probably not get any more of it.

    Hello,

    Zach: Manufacturer Kohlhase & Kopp is frank about the flavouring of Solani Aged Burley Flake. I've copied this and run it trough Deepl
    Translate:

    Contents: 50 g tin
    Aroma: hint of chocolate
    Cut type: Flake
    Tobacco type: Danish classic

    Blend: High quality flake of white Burley, matured, roasted, pressed and heated. After 6 weeks the cakes are cut into flakes. Noble tobacco pleasure.

    For strength of flavouring, they give 1 point out of five. - "Danish Classic" is also how the John Aylesbury brand describe some of their tobaccos. One of them that I know has a light honey flavour added.

    EDIT: Forgot to say: Happy Birthday!

    Sitting in the shed after dinner, smoking a mix of leftovers including Latakia and St. Bruno in a Peterson Irishmade dublin.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    Good Afternoon! It's 82°, very humid, a little breezy, and with a cloudy sky here in our town. Out on the deck keeping Grover company while smoking a bowl of Bayou Morning Flake in the Peterson "Irish Harp 999" and there's a glass of cold water on the side. 💧

    Thank you, Markus. There’a another German site that lists 168mg of sugar, cocoa, and propylene glycol in the Aged Solani Flake yet they say “absolutely no additives or flavoring.” I wish they followed some sort of purity law to be able to say it has no additives like food laws. Some people may not want additives and could buy based on ingredients.
