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.

The flavor is great, the flakes take a few tries to get used to packing correctly if you're new, but it's a good smooth smoke. No tongue burn.
Tobacco was not fresh
The wonderfully subtle hay flavor this has is, so far, unbeatable as an all-day smoke. The flavor lasts from the first puff to about the last quarter of a bowl (which, to me, on *any* tobacco blend/type I've ever smoked, the last quarter is rough, flavorless, and makes my throat scratchy). Seriously, the flavor is good with every single puff throughout, and especially even a tiny bit better if you keep up with soft tamping once in a while. This is a blend/type I'll have for the rest of my days to use as an all-day if I need one when away from home. It's simply Just That Good!
50 gram tin is round but has tobacco wrapped in paper. Made for square tins..Need to change paper packaging.
This a very 'fine' and 'subtle' tobacco blend. Rubbed out it burns best, in my humble opinion, and if smoked leisurely it will *not* get hot or bite, and if kept gently tamped in the bowl after about 1/4 down the sweet hay field smell and taste will start to show itself and you'll suddenly find yourself wanting to lay back in that hay field barefoot and lower your straw hat over your eyes and just enjoy the bowl. Imagine a Tom Sawyer moment but painted by Norman Rockwell...*that* is the subtle sweetness and flavor that comes to mind with this blend.
Really quite good all day everyday tobacco. Nothing complicated here. I rate it right below Mac Baren Navy Flake... right now. MBNF can be bought by the pound making it an exceptional value. Semper Fi Mike
Great, grassy Virginia. Perfect for mornings and warmer weather.
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
