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.

Orlik Golden Sliced
For me, it's probably the best straight Virginia. Nice and sweet. No tongue bite. Moisture is near perfect right out of the tin. Beautiful packaging. Orlik are tried n true master blenders, which is why it still exists. Pure Gold
When this arrived it was the first bowl I loaded, and I did not regret my choice! This is fantastic flake which I broke and loaded into my pipe. Slow burning, experienced no bite and kept in some chunkier peices. Smells vaguely citrus and I definitely picked up a little citrus and pepper while smoking. Delightful flake that smoked to whitewash. I look forward building the flavour in my pipe. I ordered 100g so it will have time to mature. Overall I would recommend this to anyone as any all day smoke any time. Smoked in a Rossi larger bowl no filter
Only been smoking pipe tobacco for about half a year now. Moved on from rookie aromatics. Did my basic research on popular go-to blends and came across Orlik golden sliced of course and was Not disappointed. Very approachable for beginners & intermediate smokers. Not too complex. A subtle sweet dried fruit aroma comes off it when opening the tin & when rubbing it out, but not Too sweet when smoked. Virginia Perique blends (VaPer blends) are usually pretty mild & straightforward. Not a lot of complex notes. A mild sweet citrus mixed with earthy hay/sweet grass. No bite.
Excellent flavor...priced well.
Superb Virginia...as always.
Great tobacco to stock up on....great Virginia.
ORLIK GOLDEN SLICED
Although there have been numerous reviews and I don't like being redundant; I truly felt compelled to leave one myself. For those of us which enjoy a non-aromatic blend and even an English tobacco (this isn't) now and again, Orlik Golden Sliced will not disappoint. As previously mentioned, it isn't excessively moist, packs/folds well and the room notes are tolerable for the most part. I won't give it more than 3-stars however, because the taste can become a bit acidy if not smoked with extreme patience, which we all can loose on occasion. All in all, I will keep a couple of tins in my stock and can fully understand why it's been around for so many years.
Best all day smoke
Trying it for the first time. I am a big fan of Early morning pipe and I think Golden slice will replace it as my all-day tobacco. Tin note is excellent. Does anyone else notice the fennel seeds aroma in the tin
A nice, simple, lightly sweet, lightly citrus smoke
I'm new to this one after not trying it for years. This is the VA sister to MacBaren Golden Extra in that this is a simple, light, mildly sweet rendition on VA where the Golden Extra is the same with Burley. This is a smoke that doesn't completely coat your mouth, it can be smoked up to a meal, goes well with coffee and sweet teas. It's an easy burning all day smoke with a reasonable level of nicotine that develops more as the bowl progresses. This is not a heavy cloying rich VA and that is not a bad thing. The simplicity in this is the value. I'm a fan of heavier VA/per blends and this is not in that category to me at all. I find it is best appreciated in a dedicated VA pipe as the subtlety comes out better when it's not competing with the ghosts of balkan or full English use.
