This is a review of three bulk flakes. Peter Stokkebye Navy flake, Bullseye, Twist. All are worth aging in the vault.
I tend to enjoy VA tobacco in the hotter months of the year, and this flake is a real winner! It seems to have some age already on it, but I am looking forward to seeing how it continues to develop with time. This is one worth stocking up on and putting away for a rainy (or hot) day.
I have found it excellent flake.
I like all blends so not dedicated to this is good and I give it 4 stars because there is still another I love more. I love that sweet bread dough flavor over hay/ grass. This falls in the middle. Can’t tell you what I love the most. Saving for me..
I've spent a small fortune trying different tobaccos, I have now settled down to this one as #1, it just fits my palette. I now own enough tobacco to last a lifetime if I were 45 yrs. old, but I'm past my mid 70's.
This is a very good aromatic flake that has a regular in my rotation for a long time. For starters the tobacco note is very pleasant and then the topping takes it to next level. The cut is a very unique flake with good visual appeal in the colors and waviness caused by the twist of the blend. Lighting and burning is a breeze, can easily smoke an entire bowl with hardly any excess moisture and fee relights required. The flavor of the VA. tobacco comes through with the flavor/aroma additive giving a pleasant flavor that is untiring and full. The room note is pleasing but does hang for a time after the smoke.
Considering I've only smoked a few Virginia blends, I feel Iike my input on this particular tobacco won't be very helpful. But here goes, this twist flake is pretty sweet, smooth and burns well for a long time. I can taste the topping sometimes better than others depending on which pipe I use. If I pack 2 whole flakes in my biggest bowl I can immediately taste the vanilla the first good hit. So only big wide bowls for me with this blend. I will be buying 8 oz of this immediately.
This tobacco is great, I bought 2oz and then 8oz and planning on stocking up. Do not get fooled by the low price. I detect some vanilla and coconut along with the grassiness of the Virginia, just an awesome tobacco.
I wish I had never bought this tobacco. It started out as a sample given me by a 'friend'. "Try it, you may like it." It sat on my desk collecting dust for a year or more. Since it was in a small jar, I knew it would be OK. So I tried it. In a matter of three bowls, one after the other I decided I could not live without it any longer. Now, I'm a Gawith Hoggarth & Co. smoker. I love almost everything from those Lakelanders.. But this hit a sweet spot. Not too full, but full flavored, especially the aftertaste. Smoked right down to the bottom of my Peterson Standard. But in all honesty, I can't recommend it. Why? Because I want it all to myself. So don't you buy this. Leave it for me.
