Well, my stock of Germain's Rich Dark Flake was getting a little low so I figured it was time for a replen. As is the way with TAD, I thought whilst I'm at it I'll should also order something else so went for a new blend for me; Robert McConnell's Scottish Cake... we'll see how it goes.

Very Happy

I enjoy the Scottish Cake myself. Of course, I would be more pleased with the RDF. I think I have two flakes left.

G’day Stick, please post your impressions on the Scottish cake, been eyeing that blend for a while but haven’t pulled the trigger so your comments may just tip the scale.

Cheers

Baccy arrived today and is now labelled and jarred up.

The RDF arrived just in the nick of time as I was almost down to my last bowl. It came as no surprise; long thin, dark (duh) flakes (duh) with a fantastically rich (duh) smell. Not entirely sure whether I should be eating it or smoking it.

The Scottish Cake has been a nice surprise. I've read several reviews that have said it was very wet out of the tin. This hasn't been my experience, in fact I'd say it's at a perfect moisture level; when squeezed it clumps up nicely but then gradually falls apart when you let it go. Just how I like it. To me it has a tangy ketchupy smell, fruity and grassy. Very much looking forward to sticking this in my pipe and smoking it. Until the weekend...

Today being the weekend I gave the Scottish Cake a run out.

I don't profess to have as highly a developed palate as many of the fellows on the BoB but overall it was a pleasing smoke. I didn't find that the fruity, tangy tin note continued through to the smoke as much as I thought it might, but the grassy, earthy Vas shone through. The perique was very evident too, providing a figgy pepperiness that I very much enjoy. The Va and per were nicely balanced.

Contrary to others' experiences that I've read in reviews I didn't need to dry the baccy and it didn't create any moisture either. Following a few charring lights lots of creamy white smoke ensued and a couple of relights were needed to see me through to the end of the bowl.

All in all, a jolly fine smoke that I'd place firmly in the VaPer hangar, providing a nice alternative to blends like Sammy G's SJF. Yup, I like it.

Yet, that was one very vivid and borderline artistic description that made me desperately want to sample a blend I’ve never even thought twice about! Wink
You’re the man! Glad you enjoyed your haul!
