Top notch smoke, with a relaxing linger,nice and strong, no bite.
At first, I was put off because the tin note reminded me of a can of skoal, but after allowing a flake to air dry for about 10 minutes I folded and stuffed and we were off. I've been told there is an anise topping, but it wasn't noticeable for me. Definitely a flake I will keep on hand for my morning coffee, really good pick me up in the morning.
Really good tobacco. One of my favorites. Full-flavored. Strong tobacco without being bitter. I've been smoking it for a long time - and I will continue to do so.
This pipe tobacco is my personal favorite as a daily smoke, strength is excellent strong just like I like it, room note is also excellent and flavor just like I like it. Tobacopipes.com is an excellent site for ordering this and other tobaccos. I enjoy the fact that there are plenty of tobaccos to choose from and selection is awesome.
This tobacco if quality but not my flavor.
I won't be buying any more.
This flake is truly a good quality in making. It's a pure Virginia of the art in pipe tobacco making. It's for sure the liking for the matured pipe smoker. In my opinion, you need to be ready for a serious relaxing evening to enjoy this tobacco. It's not an all-day smoke. Its rich in nicotine yet very flavorful for an after dinner smoke. Again, that's my opinion.
This tobacco is very strong to be sure. It's got a right kick! But the flavor is exceptional, and it smokes very, smooth. I was shocked by how smooth it was considering how strong it is. Also, I found the room note to be very enjoyable. This is going to be my main tobacco for a while I think.
I love strong tobaccos and this one is that, and it tastes great. I have tried many of the flake tobaccos on the market and find them overall not to my liking, but this is a personal choice, I tend to favor Burley and this is an excellent choice for that. If you like strong, full smoke then give it a try. Peterson also has the "University Flake" which I found interesting and strong also.
