Kendal plug is the uncut version of the ever popular Best Brown Flake and is also known as Best Brown Plug. Many class this as the mellower and sweeter cousin of Full Virginia Flake/Plug(FVF/FVP) and its easy to see why. The tobacco is made using high quality virginias and even has the same, slight herby/vegatal aroma found in FVF/FVP. This mellower version is made without the use of any toppings and is one of the cleanest Virginias produced in the UK.
Best smoked by cutting the plug into thin-medium flakes and breaking down. Once lit you are greeted with divine sweetness and a gentle herby and nutty flavours. Depending on how you cut this plug a bowl can last for hours and burns cleanly to the bottom of the pipe, leaving a fine ash.

Being a fan of big bold Perique and Latakia Blends the taste buds begin to shut down at the onslaught after a while.To give them a little rest a good honest to god plain Virginia is required. Mellow Cool smoking ;in plug form the perfect churchwarden moment .As Virginia's go this is excellent, nothing fancy but the better for it.A good honest smoke..
