This was my first flake, so now after many other flakes under the match, it's time to return to review it.
Possibly the prettiest of the flakes, its rounded square chips are simply gorgeous. The aroma in the bag is like nothing else I have smoked and I can't pinpoint a scent in the real world that corresponds to it. It translates into an interesting and agreeable room note, bordering on aromatic. What the hell, I'm going to call it an aromatic flake!
There is nothing here but Virginia, plus the casing/topping of course. It can burn a bit hot until you get the hang of it, but folded, cannonballed or rubbed out, it seems to smoke about the same. For a larger pipe, it has to be rubbed out I think. Easy to keep lit, it will burn to the bottom of the bowl with a little tamping, without much help from relights. The nicotine hit is negligible.
It has a delicious if somewhat unusual taste at first, but as it burns down it becomes pure Virginia and the casing wanes into the background. It can bite! It doesn't have to, if you control yourself, but it's one of the more dangerous flakes I've encountered.
A wonderful smoke it is, but possibly requiring a bit more technique than many other flakes I could name. It can pall. A few bowls and it's time to move on, but I love to return to it. Although some might consider it one dimensional (I couldn't disagree), that one dimension makes for a very good smoke a few times a week. If Latakia and heavy cigar like blends are the stinky good dogs of tobacco, Luxury Twist Flake is the house cat -- beautiful, but a little dangerous.
