I say the Lux Navy is my favorite, but this is a very close second. I love the grassy undertones. Sweet Virginia flake. I rub it out lightly as the spiral doesn't fold very well (IMO). Just a beautiful smoke and great every day tobacco. Will age well I'm sure. I've been smoking PS for 15 years easy (I smoked their Virginia cigarette tobacco for years) and it's just a fantastic tobacco company.
Tear out that trash Cavendish center, and you have a very enjoyable smoke.
The black cavendish muffles the Virginia without adding anything for itself. The taste is somewhere between a bowl of Half and Half and puffing on a cigarette without inhaling.
Juicy, tasty, voluminous, quality tobacco! On every day.
A good looking Bulls Eye! I ordered to smoke it in Summertime and I'm really enjoying it. Coins come in the little too moist fold and pack method also works you have to be careful and gently fold it. I do in three folds and it doesn't break apart in the process. Lightly rubbing and letting it dry for a few minutes also works well. That perique occasional pinch is there and the tobacco itself is very good quality and all in all a very enjoyable mid-strength smoke.
Hadn't tried this as I incorrectly thought that it could not be much different to Peter Stokkebyes other flake VaPer, Navy Flake, except for the addition of the Black Cavendish. A kind soul sent me a sample that proved me wrong. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the 8oz. Bullseye is a mild to medium blend with a mild amount of nicotine [My preferred strength] The taste of perique is slightly more obvious to my tastes than the Navy Flake. [Due to it not having a rum topping like NF perhaps?] The moisture level is just right for smoking straight from the box. Easy to prepare and pack. Although good fresh, this I'm told benefits from a bit of aging. Navy Flake improves noticeably after several months jarred so I expect the same from Bullseye as the same young Virginias are used in both. Highly recommended.
First tried it by folding and stuffing it, and it was ok, burns well stays lit. Then I tried it rubbed, and it just bloomed. Mixing that tiny dot of cavendish gives the blend a cigar-like flavor, which was and is fantastic.
