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
Reds & Perique

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Yorktown meets Louisiana Perique! I was going to compare the Pease VaPers but then reading FriarAlcuin's review, he really nailed everything I was going to say. I second his conclusions. This is my favorite of the Pease VaPer blends, strong with Reds... Read More
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
Pretty much perfect

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
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
Top Tier!

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
Wonderfuly ballanced

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
Where's the Perique?
June 18, 2019
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.
Very Nuanced, Delicate VaPer
August 13, 2021
Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 8oz
This is by far one of the best VaPer blends I have ever tried. I’m so happy I bought the 8oz tin. No cloying tin note, just a fresh, harmonious chord of well aged classic tobaccos. The ratios are spot-on: the red Virginia base is gorgeous; the bright... Read More
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
Best of kind!

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.
A light VaPer

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Tin notes of vinegar and dried fruits. In the bowl it is citrusy sweet and peppery. Reminds me of G.L.Pease Cairo without the oriental.
nice change of pace

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
Tin note of pungent, tangy raisins and sugar. Tobacco is a Ribbon cut of orangish brown, tan and a little dark brown. Moisture content is good. Some pipe smokers will want to dry this a bit. Burns slow with a few relights. The strength is medium and ... Read More
Balanced traditional VaPer
October 16, 2022
Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
This is an excellent and very underrated traditional VaPer. The bready sweetness of the virginias and peppery and figgy notes of the perique balance each other very well. A great all-day VaPer and a very traditional one at that!
Very nice perique spice in this one

Product: G. L. Pease Stratford 2oz
GL Pease does great things with VaPers, and I use his "Telegraph Hill" as my yardstick. Stratford is a little more mellow than TH, but delicious. The red and bright Virginia base makes this one a little bit more round than Telegraph Hill. I... 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
