After a long hiatus from GL Pease’s, Abington, I finally open a tin that I bought a few months ago. This is one of the few blends I feel I need to keep on hand at all times. The pungent waft of unmistakably quality leaf greeted me but sitting on top of the tobacco was enough flakes to pack a Dunhill ODA exclusively with flake. I’ve encountered an occasional small flake in blends before but this was like a bonus sample of Abington in a broken flake form. I did what anyone would do faced with this conundrum—I packed a bowl with flakes and set flame to it to destroy the evidence. Has anyone else encountered this before?
