I was perusing the 4 Nogs website today, looking at a restock of RC 5100 which I'm rather fond of, and the 2015 Va flake and Per caught my eye. I do enjoy a VaPer with SG's SJF being one of my favourites. Has anyone had any experience of McC's offering? If so, what are your thoughts?

Mate, 2015 is my go-to VaPer. I have at least a few bowls/wk and while one version I received in a trade has 15% added Perique, the regular off-the-shelf 2015 isn't really much different. It's a fairly stout blend, and in that I mean mouthfeel/body. Not so much in the nic dept. Can't go wrong with it, says I.

I do find it comes a bit moist though, so rubbing out and drying a bit is essential IMHO.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

I love both these tobaccos. I'm a lover of VA + Perique.

So I buy 5100 and add my own measure of perique which I also buy from 4noggins

But I buy 2015 as well Embarassed

Don't laugh at me, I'm only a pipe smoker Very Happy

SJF is a thinner, longer flake, plus it seems to have a tad more moisture than 2015. Both are great in their own respects.
