So jim...what's the story on the Walnut? Latakia at all? Flavor profile? Is it like Warrior? Lakeland essences in there?

Special note: To all you guys that post pics of the pipe you mention - of any kind - that's really so cool for everyone.

Doesn't matter if it's a stock photo or one your uncle Slappy took with his Brownie Hawkeye...I LOVE seeing 'em.

THANK YOU!!!

Here's my review of Ogden's Walnut:
I find this to be a very consistent tasting smoke that burns well no matter how I handle the flake. There's a nice subdued natural Virginia sweetness and earth mixed in with the mild earthy nuttiness of the smoky, lightly woody Kentucky burley, which also has a little molasses and brown sugar sweetness. The spice from the Kentucky is very mild. The burley is the lesser component in terms of composition, but there's a healthy amount of it present. A few detect a little Lakeland essence, but I do not. It's not here at all. The topping reminds me of treacle, but I'm not certain that is what it is. Has a mild nic-hit. I also think it's a lighter smoke than the average ratings indicate, more of a medium than medium to full. Full of flavor and very pleasant to smoke, I only wish it was more available in the U.S. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl and has a nice after taste.

Jim - your review of Walnut makes it sound like its in the same neighborhood as Stonehaven.

It is. I prefer Stonehaven, which is sweeter with a cocoa note and has a little more depth, but Walnut is a very acceptable substitute.

Now THAT'S very interesting.


I think there are a few places where it's obtainable...like maybe synjeco, or however they spell it. I'll have to look into that.

Edit:

Ahhh. There it is...the flake...at Mr Snuff. Roughly $20 for a 50 gm pouch plus $10 intl. shipping.

Hmmm. Next time I order some Viking Dark I'll have to add some Walnut to the order. Or coerce a snuffer to snag some for one of my cockamamie trade deals. I seriously need to try some of this.

I know they make it in Plug form too, but being a beggar and all...well, you know the drill.

I never heard of Viking Dark. I'd like to know about it.

Well, I was wondering if it was snuff or not. I'm not a snuffer, though.

Now smoking St. James Flake in a straight sandblasted pre-transition Barling Exel 249 Fossil T.V.F. black billiard with a silver band and military bit.

Being flexible and broadly encouraging among those of limited and grudging scope is a mission requiring great tolerance. Fortunately I also carry a big stick.  Wink
