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.

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

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 More

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

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 More

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

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. I dont think it gets much better than this, when it comes to that c... Read More
