Re: Time to place my order - need a recommendation

My old stand-by's are marlin Flake, GLP's Union Square & GLP's Fillmore. A 50/50 mix of US & Fillmore is a good rich smoke, and not
as spicey as haddos

You might try G&H Bright CR Flake. It's no FVF, but it is a nice medium Virginia.

Blackwoods Flake sounds pretty close to what you're wanting. Medium or Mild Medium, dark, smooth Virginia.

Re: Time to place my order - need a recommendation

I can't do the McClelland's ketchup thing. For some reason I'm particularly sensitive to it.

The Bright CR flake sounds interesting though contamination from it's sibling floral/soap scented blends has me worried. ainkiller:

Lots of good idea in here though, thanks everyone!

FWIW, I don't detect any Lakeland contamination in Bright CR Flake at all.

Brigade Campaign Dark is a fantastic smoke. Possibly even better than FVF, depending on the mood I'm in. One of the best pure VAs out there...

The blend that comes to mind for me from this search is Wessex Brown Virginia Flake. I think you'll be surprised. I mean you'd be surprised. That's all. Honest.
