There has been many disagreements as to whether or not this blend actually contains Perique tobacco. In our opinion, there is no reason for Orlik to omit the Perique. And besides, we can taste the Perique. Golden Sliced tobacco is a perfect flake cut tobacco and carries a delicious hay flavor. This tin is available in both 50 and 100 gram tins.

I love this tobacco. I have known it for three decades. Furthermore, the tins made for the US market are more attractive than the ones made for the domestic Danish market. The US version has an entirely red top, no ugly warnings. I will be back. Peter
Great all-day blend. To go even better with it I added a small amount of Turkish Ribbon making it wonderful.
A little strange not what I expected in a flake. Sort of a rope bundle. Actually easy to work with. Fold and stuff or rubbed out. Delicious tobacco with natural sweetness from Virginia. Smoke cool if you don't suck it like your drinking a milkshake. An excellent break from my Solani ABF. The only tobacco I give a five-star rating. Highly recommend.
Fantastic tobacco. I am basically a Burley lover but for a change of pace, this really hits the spot. Sip only though. I can get a bit bitty if you smoke too hard. I smoke too hard. I know I know but there is plenty of flavors so no need to puff too hard. I highly recommend.
Ah, finally a place to get GS at a decent price!
For many years I have been returning to this tobacco, good quality, and tasty tobacco!
Tin note and during smoke it gives a taste of some very ripe orange fruit. Perique presence gives just a small burn in the nostrils when retrohale and those Virginia's continually reminds its presence with sweetness and hay-like taste. Glad I chose my smooth finish straight billiard with the wind cap on and kept an extra 9mm filter in case if it's choked with moister as flake were moist out of the tin but tonight it's a bit windy cool and dry so didn't use the spare filter. I like my flakes bit on a moist side which in this case was perfect. I took one and a half flakes folded and squeeze with my fingers to loosen up and filled the pipe. It lit easily and took a couple of relights during the whole smoke. It will bite if pushed too hard but I find it a very satisfying smoke for all day any day. A very good VaPer with lots of Virginia's sweetness and some Perique pinches to shake you up.
Orlik Golden Sliced is a very pleasant surprise. Mild, yet a touch of Perique comes through. Smokes well to end of bowl with no bite. This is tobacco I would recommend to a beginning pipe smoker. It is in my rotation consistently.
