    freestoke, if you ever pass throughout Dubai duty free they have a crazy deal on erinmore flake; 5 50gram tins for about the equivalent of US$15. I passed through in April but didn't pick any up (sorry, just saw this thread or I woulda bought it and sent it over).

    Never tried a flake before and this makes me want to try. Off to smokingpipes.com to order me some.

    Ennerdale was my first exposure to Lakelands, I may be in the minority here but that's one flake I had to pass on!

    Definitely not a Lakeland, John, not even close. I really don't see how you can go wrong.. I think the love/hate balance is WAY unbalanced in the LOVE direction. Seems like the negative reviews on tobakrevs are sort of stupid, even misguided, in general. (Like, what's with the "can't keep it lit" nonsense? You can practically set it down after you light it and let it burn to the bottom by itself! ) With Ennerdale I can see real pipe smokers running for the exits, but not this one. Lots of 4 stars from people who sound like they know their shinola. Not to everyone's taste, of course, but I think you'd like it a lot.

    Thanks Jim. I usually take TR with a grain of salt anyhow, but like my father once told me about something totally unrelated, the worst I ever had was pretty good...

    Except for Lakelands of course, lol. I've been kind of looking for a fruity aromatic to get some occasional burn time, how does Erinmore compare to Uni Flake or OGS?

    Wow. Haven't smoke UF in many months, but from what I remember, Erinmore is sorta along the same lines, but maybe a bit fruitier. Flakes are smaller and possibly a bit thinner-stranded than UF. (Looking at some IF for comparison...neehhh...close for the strand size.) If I'm remembering right, Erinmore is a little easier to keep lit, although neither of them is a problem.

    Never had OGS, although I have a couple of tins that I haven't opened.

    Re: Erinmore FLAKE

    Erinmore is literally the top of my list. I could smoke nothing but this for the rest of my life and be just fine. And I really like UF and IF too, but erinmore takes the cake 10 times out of 10 for me. I transport all my pipeleaf in empty erinmore tins because just taking tobacco out of that yellow tin makes my brain decide to like it more. A++ review!

    Erinmore
    OGS
    UF

    That's my personal scale for those three blends above; fruitiness is at the top and strength is at the bottom. UF really only tastes sweet for the first 5-10 mins then it kinda fades out. The strength is more noticeable than Erindale though. OGS to me is very citrus tasting which comes and goes, some Va notes are always present but even with two bowls back to back you'll still be steady enough to peel fruit without slicing off a thumb.

    never tried Erinmore Flake, but I should get a 100 gram tin just to try, worse thing that can happen is I don't like it and trade for something I like.
    OGS is pretty fruitty, but it goes in and out. mostly it grass/hayish notes like Virginia and the fruitty notes comes and goes. good blend thou

    I haven't seen a 100 gram tin in ages. Ever since they moved production to someone else I've seen nothing but the 50 gram tins. Lucky for me I've still got a couple of unopened old school Murray tins. The new tins are made by Orlik. Haven't tried the new ones yet.

    Be careful not to confuse Erinmore Mixture which comes in 100g tins with the Erinmore Flake which comes in 50g tins. Very different...and the Mixture is not that great, IMO!

    All this talk of Erinmore has me wanting to grab one of my tins from the cellar and open!!!
