Description Ref # 3109

Germain & Son commenced manufacturing tobacco back in 1820. A family business located in Jersey boasting perfect climatic controlled conditions.

The experience gained by succeeding generations in the art of blending has produced the range of fine individual tobaccos available today. Their new factory is situated on the site of the original premises facing the harbour of St Helier from whence, 180 years ago, Jersey-built schooners sailed to many parts of the world, some returning with cargoes of leaf tobacco for Germain's factory.

The name of this tobacco originates from the early days when all tobaccos were pressed into cakes before cutting. Four types of Virginian tobaccos are blended with Cavendish and a specially prepared Black Tobacco.

The complete blend is then flavoured in accordance with a 70 year old formula to produce a honey sweet smoking tobacco with a unique aroma.

Tasting Notes

The Germain’s Brown Flake is a straight Tobacco with no added flavour or casing but has a natural sweetness, which comes from the expert blending capabilities of the Germain experts.

It has been blended using Kentucky and bright Virginian leaf, which is initially air cured to draw out the simpler, nuttier flavour, then pressed to ferment in its own vital juices for a naturally sweet and very characterful smoke.

A must try for any lover of Flakes!

Strength: 3/5

It would be fair to assume that Medium flake would just be a slightly milder version of Germain’s ever-popular Rich Dark Flake. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! Medium flake is made from a trio of Virginias that are pressed into a fine flake with an added fruit and citrus casing. The smell when I opened my first packet of this really surprised me; very fruit-forward, vaguely reminding me of strawberry, but with a tingly citrusy undertone. I imagine a lot of people might have dismissed this tobacco for sounding a bit boring – I know I did! – but if you give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.

A uniform thin cut dark brown flake, pouch note is to me the aroma of chocolate brownies! Very pleasant, rubbing out is easy, as is packing, smooth relaxing smoke, rich in taste, burns clean, no dottle, to me it just lacks OOMPH! But if you require a slow, luxurious smoke, then there isnt any finer, a great blend from masters of there craft, germains. Classy stuff.
