Nostalgia & Spice and Everything Nice
July 13, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
This is a very intriguing blend. The shag cut (which is certainly not my favorite), will insist upon your respect. Pack it well and take it slow. Be mindful of the pipe shape and size you select. Out of the tin, I find the moisture level perfect. I w... Read More
Pease Does it Again

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Will Greg Pease go down as the greatest blender of all time? Time will tell but I have never found a Pease blend I’ve had a complaint about. I’m not sure why Greg Pease decided to name this blend after a peculiar Victorian era bicycle but he can do n... Read More

Love at First Puff

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
I've always loved the convenience of shag cut tobaccos. I'm also a Virginia lover. So when I saw Pease was releasing a shag cut vaper, I immediately snapped up 3 tins to try. The cut is EXTREMELY fine (shag cut). I'm sure some people will compare... Read More
Tastes just like old cigarettes

I’ve only tried a few bowls and this stuff tasted like smoking unfiltered Camel cigarettes
Well rounded

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Very rounded mix where ingredients mixed around in unified taste experience. Although the cut is fine but its not as fine as 5 brothers/dark birds eye kinda cut, it look like mini ready rubbed cut blend, looking at it reminds me of McClelland black s... Read More
Extremely tasty

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Most shag cut blends are very singular. This has beautiful Virginia's, perique and Kentucky dark fired. Satisying tasty blend. Excellent job Mr. Pease

Wonderful blend, very different in flavor compared to the tin description in a good way. nice shag cut.
Smoky, Sweet, Spicy

Great creamy, sweet, spicy, smoke. As well behaved as can be.
Worth trying if you like Pease’s VaPers
July 12, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
If smoked in a smaller and narrower bowl, this blend is worth trying. It demands the smoking technique of any Virginia, or VaPer mixture. My first smoke opened with sweet and bread-like notes. The sweetness comes as a hint of molasses. You also get t... Read More
Top 5
May 05, 2022
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Sometimes you find a tobacco that just works for you. Something about your body chemistry, the way you smoke, your preference for spice/sweetness/nicotine/cut etc. For me, this is a top five. Packs great in my Dunhill Oom Paul, which is my new obsess... Read More
Old Camels, eh?
September 19, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
One reviewer says this tastes like unfiltered Camel cigarettes. There is nothing wrong with unfiltered Camels. Best cigarette ever. But this tobacco tastes nothing like a Camel. It shares some Virginia flavor. It has dark fired Kentucky and perique,... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
This is some good stuff. I do not have a lot of space for storage but suspect I will buy another tin of this. I did not experience any problems with packing my pipe. I did a big pinch with light pack and then a small pinch and packed until the sur... Read More

I didn’t care for this at first but after smoking more of it and other shags, it has grown on me quite a bit. It’s definitely doesn’t taste like cigarettes. It just takes time to figure out how to smoke it.
Easy and rich
March 25, 2022
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
I’m a fan of shag cuts and pease blends so I had to try this. Packed firmly it was not difficult to get the cadence right. For me it was mostly about the Kentucky, which I loved, and the perique was nice and spicey. Have to admit I didn’t get a lot o... Read More
Pretty good

A good smoke, I might buy again. Good morning to all day smoke. Very nice dark fired Kentucky flavor
Awesome flavor for most of the bowl
October 13, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
I love the top two thirds of this blend in my bowl. It has the wonderful Kentucky flavors and the shag burns like a champ, but I lose most of the flavor near the end.
Rich and tasty
June 13, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
A great VaPer! Rich deep flavor with a nice amount of sweetness. Complexity is enhanced from what I’m guessing is a pinch of dark fired, as it doesn’t overpower the blend at all. 2nd half of the bowl is where the blend really starts to show itself. P... Read More
New Favorite
June 11, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
By far my favorite tobacco I have tried to date. It has plenty of the sweetness and spice one expects from a VaPer, but with some unique deep funk as well: the tin note is a strangely intoxicating mixture of malt, mulch, cardamom, and honey. Smokes... Read More
Unfailing!

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
I usually had my tongue bitten when I smoked Virginia. This is without it at all. The sweetness and richness lasted from start to finish, and I didn't feel like it was packed tightly, but it took an hour to reach the bottom of the bowl.
A bit too spicy for me
February 23, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
This one started off well, and I love shag blends. I was smoking this in a Missouri Meerschaum Pony Express that I'd put a longer stem on, so it's a narrow bowl and not very deep. It burned well despite my over-packing it a bit. By mid bowl, though, ... Read More
Good for what it is
November 18, 2020
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
I'm familiar with this from my brick and mortar shop. It's the most cigarette like of any blend I've had. I'd be hard pressed to name anything of the flavor wheel. But that makes it one of my favorites to have with my morning coffee. It doesn't deman... Read More
To bad its a THIN shag.. but ..
January 05, 2020
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
It has its use. I bought it purely on its ingredients no idea how fine a shag it was and how hot and dry it smoked. I use this to cut some adventurous aromatics and impatiently moist tins to outstanding effect. No strong opinion of it by its self.
Glad I Gave It A Second Look
December 16, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
When I first smoked the blend, I wasn't impressed. Being new to shag cut blends, I had a slight learning curve in getting the pack right- Otherwise this blend just burned too hot and fast for me to draw a bead on it. I also couldn't get by a certai... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Shag cut is different. I have not had many blends that use this cut. Extremely easy to pack, but burns just as easily which I imagine could burn your mouth if you are not careful. The flavor is straight forward. Dark sweetness with a pepper finis... Read More
Not for me
September 15, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
There are several things to like about this tobacco. The shag cut is nice and is very easy to light and keep lit and it burns very evenly. The moisture level is about perfect straight out of the tin. The tin note is nice and subtle. The smoke also pa... Read More
It's OK
September 01, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
This blend was just so so for me. I have several Va/pers that I prefer over this and the fine shag cut I found hard to deal with compared to my easy to deal with ribbon cuts. After my tin is gone I doubt I buy another.
Not my cup of tea
August 19, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Because of the shag cut it burns very hot so normal draws are not possible. I read a comment about this being similar to cigarette tobacco and I think that's a spot on description. I don't get a ton of enjoyable flavor from it. This one will sit for ... Read More
Nice

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
Not bad, a little sweet, spicy, definitely must be sipped as it burns hot, very finely cut. The flavor slowly developes through out the smoke.
Age might make it good

Product: G. L. Pease Penny Farthing 2oz
After a handful of bowls in 3 different pipes designated to my VaPers… I'm not impressed. It starts off nicely with a balance of warm dark chocolate baked goods and a hint of spice. I get a little sourdough and sweet hay per usual from the Virgini... Read More
