Some really nice PS blends you got there. I had some English Luxury last night and it was sweet and smooth. Still have to try that Proper English though

I've been reduced to quoting myself.

I've smoked two (2) bowls
  • James Upshall large, smooth, thick walled billiard saddle, 3 flakes with a torpedo fill (folded, not broken).
  • Charatan sandblast, wide-mouth pot, 2 flakes fully rubber out.

Luxury Navy Flake is an attractive, well manufactured flake with a light aroma and it holds together well. It burns slow, evidenced by the 2-1/2 hours it took to complete in the Upshall and a little over an hour in the Charatan.

Large, thick walled smooths are my preference for Virginia because they bring out the sweetness and maturity of the leaf more than any other pipe. The problem is that the Virginia in Luxury Navy Flake isn't very mature and it lacks body. The Charatan is a new pipe to me and it's being 'trained' but it confirmed my impressions from the Upshall.

Burn quality is good without much heat. Burns slow as noted. Smokes mild or a shade above with little complexity with a light sweetness that develops.

Fresh, it's an innocuous smoke but I prefer Virginia with more depth and complexity. I do believe that it will improve with age but I doubt that it will mature into a smoke that I'd relish.

Would I buy i t again? Probably not.

I actually prefer the English Luxury over the Proper English - both good, but English Lux just has the balance right for my palate. Reminds me of Chairman of the Board.

Update to my earlier comments on Stokebbye Luxury Navy Flake.

The smoke remains too mild for my tastes but this is a well made and very well mannered tobacco. Burns well and long and cool. Whether you break it out or smoke it as a plug it's consistent.

So the update is that I may buy this again as a cordial after the heavier Virginia that I generally prefer.
