The one for experienced smokers
September 30, 2017
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
I rarely find tobacco tin literature more than a nice gimmick. However, I think this one summarises the blend. "Recommended for the experienced smoker" and there is good reason behind this. The strength, the mechanics and lastly the targete... Read More

This is my everyday smoke after breakfast before work, but I only smoke 1/2 bowl and finish it few hours later if not the nicotine kick very hard:)

So very similar to old dark fired. Pretty sure they have the same 4 types of tobacco. Nice amd dark, earthy semi sweet nutty flavor. Not as earthy as odf, and this im pretty sure has a light topping but thats ok. This was one of the first pipe tobacc... Read More
A Great, Strong Blend
September 15, 2018
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
This is a great blend for those of us that like stronger tobacco blends. The flavor is a superb, straight forward tobacco that is slightly sweet, smoky, and tangy. But be warned, it packs a punch. Delicious.
Love it

This is like the 5th pipe tobacco I have tried and so far is my favorite.I got a very late start with pipes and hope this is one blend the fda leaves alone.When did it come out?
Strong, smoky perfection

Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
I rotate through a lot of different tobaccos, rarely smoking the same thing for more than 2 or 3 days in a row. I've been smoking at least 1 bowl of this tobacco every day for over a month now and I don't see that stopping any time soon. Strong in ni... Read More

I thought I was man enough to handle this blend. Boy was I wrong! I can handle Nightcap, Old Joe Krantz and Haunted Bookshop on an empty stomach easily. What I discovered is for my taste, I don't like Dark Fired Kentucky. I officially downgraded myse... Read More
Strong!!!

Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
Smells like roses and campfire, tastes great lots of flavour. You might be better off starting with a half (or less) bowl cuz it had a lot of nicotine.
Not as Intimidating as the Hype

Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
First off, I have searched extensively for high nic tobaccos and purchased all of them that I could find. So far, none have lived up to the hype. Having said that, this still is some really good tobacco. The components work really well together w... Read More

I love this blend and smoke it everyday. It does not bite and has a pure tobacco flavor with a mild anise topping. This adds to the profile of the tobacco for a great smoking experience.

A dissenting opinion
July 06, 2015
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
Tobacco reviews are mostly subjective. That said, Irish flake is not for me, primarily because it tastes very manufactured. The dominant flavor for me is an unnatural amount of anise and/or tonquin. I also get some citrus and sweetness that don't ... Read More
“Irish” Flake? Nay, Southern Masterpiece!
September 26, 2020
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
I know this one’s blended in Denmark, and perhaps even despite its name, traces its lineage to a Dunhill recipe once blended by Englishmen. But Irish Flake, my all-time favorite pipe tobacco blend, is a veritable tour-de-force of Southern tobacco var... Read More

July 10, 2020
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
I give this five stars because the flavor is nirvana. However it burns deathly slow. I smoke this tobacco in nose warmer pipes that don't hold very much and the smoke can last two hours. Stop puffing on this for 30 seconds and the flame goes out. But... Read More
Difficult tobacco blend

Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
A strong and interesting blend of tobaccos. Tobacco in the plates is wet. It does not take much time after grinding with your fingers to dry the tobacco. The tube burns superbly. In my opinion, it opens beautifully in pipes such as a prince or a pot.... Read More

Este flake necesita paciencia para ser disfrutado. Su carácter es fuerte, oscuro y un tanto caprichoso. Se deja fumar...cuando quiere; para domarlo, hay que aprender a tratarlo con suavidad.

I was thrown off by the packing. Tin shape. But it is still the tobacco I reach for. Strong, yet tasty. I recomend eating first. Earthy, nutty delicious taste. I highly recommend this flake. A touch moist out of tin.

I am not a big burley fan, so I was hesitant with this blend. I love DFK, so I felt it might work out. I rubbed this flaked out and packed my pipe. The charring light went smoothly. I think I had to relight a couple of times, but it was a fresh tin. ... Read More

This is a great tobacco for a number of reasons... Great taste Exceptional burning qualities, No bite, Great value The reason this tobacco is a great value is that I only need to smoke it once a week to overload my nicotene urge!! Good Stuff.

Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
I am a lover of strong flakes & twists, and IF is a classic to me. I try to keep tin purchases under $10, and this is worth as much and tastes just as good as Stirling Flake, or some of the pricier flakes.
Perfect Flake
February 25, 2017
Product: Peterson Irish Flake 50g
Nothing subtle or contemplative about this tobacco. Strong and assertive with plenty of spicy flavor and copious amounts of nicotine. Go slow and easy or be reduced to a drooling, quivering mess ...You have been warned !!!

Petersons Irish flake is a winner. I find that I'm I find I am a fan of full bodied and full flavored tobacco's but often find full-bodied too often means some predominant flavor like over-the-top latakia or a not-so-great room note. (though I am ... Read More

Sipping is the way to go here. The smoke is floral, spicy, herbal, and leathery. I'd imagine this is similar to the Irish style plugs sold in the UK. If you enjoy dark, powerful lakelands, this is worth a try; it's just a touch lighter on the burley.... Read More

This is a beauty of burl/va, the richness of the Virginias meld well with the dark fire's earthiness and spice; it's almost akin to a well married VaPer flake. This is one of the few flakes that I enjoy both moist and dry (the others being 1792, ODF,... Read More

strong, but pure tobacco. Let the flake dry and mature to take away the intensity. Got an older tin once and the flavours were mellow, the smoke curls through your mouth and nose.

This is indeed a strong one, but deliciously haylike. If you have a high tolerance to nicotine (I've smoked cigarettes for ages), you can do this (and University Flake) as an all-day. The taste warrants it. You won't tire. It's well-tempered, burns p... Read More
