JF Germain's Special Latakia Flake Pipe Tobacco (50g PRE PACK)
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.
Germains Special Latakia Pipe Tobacco:
“Special” This should be called “Outstanding Flake!” If you are a lover of Latakia and haven’t tried this, what are you waiting for!
A true classic with an almost cult like following the Special Flake is a classic blend of carefully selected Virginia, spicy Oriental and a good helping of Latakia.
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
The Germains Special Latakia 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.
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.
