St James flake is held up by many as the bench mark for VaPer (Virginia & Perique blends). The sweet and fragrant Virginias, meld beautiful with the spicy, figgy Perique. The plug offers all the same flavours, but thanks to be being uncut, results in a slightly richer smoke. Not overly strong thanks to the reasonable amount of the pungent, Louisiana Perique.
Best prepared by slicing into thin flakes and folding into the bowl, after a little air drying.
