Former: Bird's Eye Flake 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-027-0004

Hans "Former" Nielsen began carving pipes in 1956 and has since become a legend of Danish pipe artistry with a worldwide following. In addition to his exquisite pipes, he's released his own line of pipe tobaccos — several of the blends fittingly named after briar's grain patterns.

Bird's Eye Flake from Former is a smooth, classic flake tobacco made from the finest grades of Virginia leaf, blended in layers using traditional methods and then gently matured in order to bring out the optimum flavors of the natural tobacco.

It took a few bowls to like this but I think the trick for me was to age and dry it a little. I wanted something to rotate with my Orlik GS and Sutliff 707 SV. I think this will be great ! In my opinion, it's a little spicy and peppery but I got use ... Read More
