The packaging swears the sweet notes are plum, but us and others think it taste more like berry. The Peterson University Flake pipe tobacco is a popular choice for flake tobacco fans who enjoy a tobacco that tastes exactly like it smells in the tin.

This is one of my favorite tobacco's. It is a delightful all-day smoke for me. it is best smoked (savored) slowly to get the best from the blend. It has a wonderful plum flavor that is just delivered in the correct amount. It burns very evenly if packed correctly I use two methods sometimes I rub it out other times I fold and pack. either method is fine as long as you don't over press it. I am smoking this in either a 1960's Kaywoodie pot or Savinelli Spring 606 ks. I believe this tobacco and others like this require a larger bowl to get the most out of the tobacco. This and Orlick golden slices along with Erinmore flake are all. Enjoy them all
Definitely a mild flake. Probably very mellow. However, I want to try this aged.
I love Peterson tobacco and this one is good, taste is what brings this one up to average but I found the overall smoke not as good as I expected. I was looking to rate higher but I prefer other tobaccos over this one. Better than some other flake that I have tried but I think this one comes down to personal preference of the smoker.
Im not new to this one and smoke it now and then when I want a good burley. Strong and best sipped.
good old university flake love it
One of the best Peterson tobaccos
