Description

Malcolm Flake is pipe tobacco of the highest possible premium level. Burley from Malawi and various Virginias from Brazil and Africa are predominant, with some added dark-fired Kentucky to round it off. The blend is carefully pressed and stored for one week before cutting. The exotic pineapple flavour makes this flake a miracle of taste.

A review from our resident Pipe Tobacco Expert and Namesake, Alfie Here is my opinion of the Rattray's Malcolm Flake [Pineapple] 1] Very aromatic fruity aroma on opening the tin 2] A very tight flake that needs very careful teasing to open each flake and vigorous rubbing prior to filling the pipe. The top of the pipe bowl needs to be level, for any loose strands produce a bitter taste on first lighting. [a common problem associated with some other flakes] First Impression of Smoking: [a] A very rich, and aromatic orange/pineapple taste on the tongue and palate, with rich overtones of burley and virginia, with some gentle overtones from the kentucky tobaccos blends. [b] Slow burning, but tending to burn warm, rather than hot. [c] Burns to a fine ash, without clogging into clumps of unburnt tobacco [providing the pipe is correctly filled, and lit] [d] A very pleasant room aroma, giving a hint of autumnal fragrances of distant pine cones burning. [e] A very nice aftertaste of fruit, running to sweetness on the palate, mixed with with the strength of the blend of tobaccos. [f] To my taste as a long term pipe smoker, I classify this blend as medium to strong, however not recommended for inexperienced smokers. [h] My classification would be 9 out of 10. [ i ] A premium pipe tobacco for the discerning smoker looking for something special. [ g] Would blend in very well with any single malt whisky with a strong peaty flavour. 4] Overall, a very pleasant pipe tobacco blended to perfection. Regards, Alfie
