Germain’s British Pipe Tobacco’s:
One of the last remaining true British Pipe Tobacco blenders. Renowned for their very “British” style with unique recipes dating back nearly a century! Germains Tobacco is notoriously difficult to obtain and such demand is always high from this characterful factory in Jersey.
The Germains Medium Flake is a rich, dark brown flake blended from Red, Brown and Gold Virginias along with Kentucky Tobacco leaves.
The Flake crumbles easily and has no top dressing yet remains sweet due to the natural sugar content of the blend. The tobacco has a noticeable coating of sugar crystals which give the tobacco a citrusy yet earthy and hay like flavour which is hard to compare to any other blend. A must try!
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
The Germains Medium Flake Pipe tobacco is sold in flake form. Flake tobacco requires rubbing (breaking up) before it can be smoked. The tobacco can be rubbed to the smokers preference depending on whether they prefer a slow or fast burn rate.Delicate Flakes:
Please note that Germains Flakes are more delicate/finer flakes than from other manufacturers. This makes them very easy to crumble and rub out but also means that they often don’t resemble flakes after movement in transit. So please expect something that resembles a broken flake than the neat flakes you get from other manufacturers.
