I enjoy G&H Rum Flake but oddly I never got a rum flavor from it. I got about as much rum flavor as I got chocolate from Bob's. The advertisied flavors in both of these are like the vermouth in a martini made by the gin lover that hates the idea of adding it to the cocktail shaker. Sparse and perhaps only there in ones imagination.

After the first two bowls, I thought that it may be a moisture issue. The first bowl I tried after allowing the tobacco to sit out for about 10 minutes. The second bowl (the next day) was with a different pipe and after allowing the tobacco to sit out for thirty minutes.
Last night's bowl was after the tobacco sat out for at least 3 hours and in one of my best pipes.
All three pipes are cleaned (as all mine are) after each use. No gunk in the mortise. It may just be this batch. But, I get a bitter/soapy almost cologne like fragrance/taste.
More flakes to try however. Moving on.....
