Flake #558 (The measured distance in miles between Watch City Cigar and Richmond, VA, plus a couple extra miles for good measure!) This is another of our "Crumble Flakes". (A mixture of cut leaf with some whole leaf added, pressed and sliced thick). Similiar to our "Old Dominion" this rich, dark flake substitutes a rich stoved Virginia for the Matured Virginia. A wonderfully complex flake with a naturally sweet aftertaste is the result. Just a bit less Perique than Old Dominion.

    Please Watch City don't run with this idea, I'm only making a point and your loyal customers NEED these blends! With that out of the way, I truly believe if WCC tinned and bagged their blends and released them slower then a fart you ain't sure is just a fart, like Jermain's and Son does, their blends would be every bit as coveted as Penzance or any other blend on the market. Flake #558, for me this is a VaPer that almost needs it's own sub category of Dark, Creamy VaPers for it's not your typical brighter hay with a bit of raisin spice, where the two ingredients are almost separate in the smoking flavor, 558 comes off as a singular flavor of tart yet sweet with a delicious creaminess to the smoke with hints of stewed fruits coming from BOTH the Perique and the Virginia. I honestly couldn't recommend this blend more along with everything else WCC has to offer

    Master Blend

    558 is delicious in its subtle nuances. The stoved virginia lends it a wicked depth and the hearthy flavours of dried plum and brown sugar run from char to the bottom of the bowl. I've rarely been so smitten so fast. PLEASE never stop producing this blend!

    This is a VaPer! This is a great VaPer. Pungeant but not overpowering, and burns clean as a whistle. Really nice example of a crumble cake VaPer.

    A store I like very much! ! !

    This is a store highly recommended by a friend of mine. I haven't received the tobacco though since I'm not in the US. But it doesn't prevent me from giving this store a good review! I am very much looking forward to the tobacco in their shop! If you have the opportunity to go to the United States, you must pay a visit!

    Flake 558

    Posted by Jake Baker on Sep 14th 2022

    Whoever blends for watch city knows exactly what they are doing. Everything ive tried from them has been outstanding. Flake#558 is a wonderful Va/Per. Its nice and earthy smelling in the jar. Crumbles and packs easily, and the taste is a home run. This tobacco runs the gambit of Va/Per flavors. The Virginias shift from bright citiris and tangy notes to fermented and dark. The perique adds a nice light spice and earth to the blend. Some subtle woody notes in this one as well which i imagine is coming from the perique. EXCELLENT Va/Per and one that like Old Dominion scratch an itch you cant really scratch anywhere else. Bravo Watch City!
