compared to irish flake with similar tobaccos this is bland. Initial impressions I squirmed at the taste.
One of the best

this was one of my first virginias and still my favorite. There is a slight plum topping that comes out in the smoke. It is very subtle and sweet, it doesn't taste like a chemical. Most of the flavor is a mellow va taste, mild but flavorful.
Best Va flake to me

Some people tastes some plum aroma, but not me. I swear I can't feel any chemical aroma, only the sweet fundamental note of Virginia, which is pretty strong but rounded up by the burley.

Easy smoking,Stays lit well,Easy on the tongue.Tastes very good, Not offensive to other people in this tobacco spooked world we live in.A nice hint of lemon.Also ages very well.First class all the way.If I was not so hooked on the taste of more power... Read Moreful english blends with cyprian latakia,It would be my number one blend.With no doubts.Also because of the high sugar content of the Virginia tobacco It will break a new pipe in ten times quicker.

Tastes like a cigar. Kind of strong to me. If I wanted to smoke a cigar, I would smoke a cigar. I don't want a cigar in my pipe. Lol
Very good tin

I do not smoke terribly often, and smoke tinned tobacco less often, but this is my go-to tin when I do. I very much enjoy it; a sweet plum taste as mentioned by others. It smokes easily and cool. It is great to fill the rather deep bowl on my Skov... Read Moregaard horn and pair with a glass of bourbon or Islay scotch. Read Less

I picked this up the other day due to the fact that so many people seem to like it. It was a good call. I'm not a heavy or all day smoker. Most of the time it's with a cup of coffee on the back patio in the morning or at social events in the evening.... Read More So I tend to look for something fairly low in vitamin N and not a Lat bomb. This flake seems to fit the bill well. Just for information sake I tend to prefer to rub out my flakes as opposed to the fold and stuff method. I allowed the flake to dry for about twenty minuets then loosely rubbed it out leaving it fairly long strands. I found it to have a light scent of raspberries in a very present and not overpowering way. The tobacco smoked and packed nicely. I believe that his could be an easy all day smoke if I were that type of person. The taste was mild to medium in strength and had a pleasant aroma. I definitely plan on purchasing more for cellaring and regular use. If you are a flake fan or just curious you definitely need to give this one a try. Read Less

This is hands down my favorite flake, even though I typically smoke VaPers. I can (and do sometimes) go bowl to bowl on this one. I love cubing it, but it folds great too. A nice burley taste predominates, and I haven't been bit yet.
Excellent friend of Bourbon

This is an excellent flake to smoke. It retains a certain spicy quality. Very nice to be able to rub out your own flake according to the size you desire to fill your pipe. This goes amazingly well with a good glass of Bourbon!!!!

Got it free with my new Peterson XL22 Green Spigot (Very nice!) However, this blend tasted like a cigarette to me. Wife did not approve either.

Love the aroma, very sweet, just as John C. said, it has a plum taste. My first pipe, (ordered just a bit ago) was a Peterson Killarney XL02 P-lip, and as a promo. I was allowed to pick any Peterson tobacco for free. I got this one. It is very smoot... Read Moreh and has a great flavor. Get yourself a tin, you wont be disappointed. Read Less
Very Tasty Flake!

I can't get enough of this blend. I like to keep a tin nearby just to open and take in the aroma when I'm not smoking. I have more Peterson pipes than any other brand (my family are Irish) and I find it fitting to smoke University flake through them.... Read More I like mild, cool smoke, and I don't need to make a trade off on taste with this. The Mahogany/Burley/Virginia ratio is bang on. I'm very proud of my stack of tins. Read Less

University flake is Excellent , in my pipe. It has what they call a plum taste. I thought I'd search out other tobacco's with that flavor. But I decided, I'd leave well enough alone.

It is such a favorite to me , that I reserve my Peterson Silver Spigot, for it. I got my Silver Spigot, and a can of Univ Flake for Christmas last year, purchased from none other than Smoking Pipes .com. So, my first smoke, in my first Spigot, was Univ Flake. Sort of a Special moment. Just last night, I smoked the same combination, and it took me back to Christmas day. Thats how much I like University Flake. Read Less
