Sweet and spicy

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Currently, this is my go to tobacco. I really do like this stuff. It took me a few bowls to warm up to it, but now I just can't get enough. The rotation currently is Stratford, Regent's flake, and Scottish flake. Stratford is probably the spiciest ou... Read More
Where's the Perique?

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Tin note is mostly hay with a subtle hint of plum. My tin was a tad on the dry side upon opening and burned hot and quick. Great Virginia's in this blend but the Perique is barely noticeable. Not a substitute for Elizabethan in my opinion.
Good GLP Replacement for Elizabethan Mixture
March 07, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
After experimenting with several GLP and C&D tobaccos as a replacement for Dunhill's Elizabethan Mixture (EM), I believe Stratford fills that gap the best. Stratford shares a similar flavor profile, although it is a little less perique forward th... Read More
Pretty much perfect

I first tried this blend to replace Elizabeathan mixture (back when it was unavailable) and realized that I should have been smoking this one all along. It's well balanced and great all day smoke. I highly recommend this to any va/per fans
Quite nice!

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Update: Now that my fresh briar has some cake on it, the sweetness of this blend is much more foreward and seems to come through at the start of each draw. The spice comes in immediately after, blending with the sweetness. The flavor is much better a... Read More
It's nice, but too lite for my liking
August 31, 2020
Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
The bright Virginias in this are very nice. My tin was very dry, not sure if that's normal, but for a ribbon cut it just burns way too fast. I am going to rehydrate it. If I'm wanting something super lite, I'll pull this out again, but it was just ov... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 8oz
Stratford has been compared to Elizabethan but Stradtford has more red Virginias and a just touch less perique IMO. This is a great all day smoke. It is very balanced and nuanced like all of the G.L. Pease blends I have smoked. Telegraph Hill has ... Read More
Top Tier!
November 08, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
This is a very well done, top tier tobacco. For my tastes, it is very similar to the Old Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture, which recently got acquired under the Peterson umbrella and which used to be a regular smoke for me. Stratford is mellow, tangy wi... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
A good, honest VaPer. Nothing in this blend hits too hard. In reviewing my tasting notes it was quite common to bound back and forth between a Virginia dominated puff and a Perique one. Very pleasant all the way to the bottom of the bowl, and one ... Read More

If you like Virginia and Perique, you cannot do better than this, Mellow yet surprisingly strong.
Great harvest!

The Best!
Very good

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
This blend has a very complex flavor profile. It feels like it might be way too dry but its perfect out of the tin. The blend is full bodied with lots of flavor. It will bite if you smoke too fast so small sips bring out good flavors. Good stuff.
