Favorite Peterson Flake
March 30, 2017
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Nice, well rounded VA/Burley flake here. The plum topping is more predominantly in the tin and room notes rather than in taste and is so very pleasing. I have a Bjarne pipe designated to a fold-n-stuff filling of University Flake. It lights well a... Read More
Plum Fantastic
January 30, 2017
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
I first experienced this flake at a local brick and mortar store and fell in love with it. The plum topping is evident in the tin note but not overly sweet after the char light. One of my top tobaccos.
Nice.

Good medium strength flake. Nice topping and burn. Much better than Erinmore Flake.
My all-day.

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
This is hands down my favorite flake, even though I typically smoke VaPers. I can (and do sometimes) go bowl to bowl on this one. I love cubing it, but it folds great too. A nice burley taste predominates, and I haven't been bit yet.
Great flake
September 26, 2019
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
I tried this blend after a suggestion regarding good burley blends. I was not disappointed, the initial tin note was unexpected but pleasant and it is barely noticeable in the smoke. It's a very satisfying blend, earthy, just enough sweetness and a f... Read More
Nicotiana Tabacum Zinfandel
September 29, 2020
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Considering I gave up drinking a couple of years ago, I suppose this is the closest I’ll get to sipping a glass of sweet red, perhaps a rose or a Zinfandel. That aroma is very present in the tin note but decreases greatly once you are puffing away a... Read More
Professor Plum
September 19, 2020
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
I jarred a new tin up for 4 months, giving it time to mellow just a bit. Upon opening the jar there was more of a Plum & Milk Chocolate note. Mid way through the bowl came more together as Plum Jam with a toasty sweet bread/chocolate note.

Decent Plum/Huckleberry-Topped Flake
May 11, 2021
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
They state plum, but it reminds me of huckleberry. The fruity topping is always present and adds the least bit of fruity nuance on top of a predominate woody and earthy mixture. It's not a sweet/fruity addition - just a smell that you can sense. I w... Read More

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
I've been sampling my way though a number of Virginia flakes lately. I recently tried Peterson Flake and was blown away by the rich flavour. I went through 5 cans of it and each one was better than the last. I popped open a can of this last week. I... Read More
I wanted to like it.
March 09, 2021
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Nice easy fruity plum topping with chocolate notes. The problem is the burley irritates and I can’t smoke it beyond the halfway point or it burns. So I end up wasting half of it which means it’s not worth it.
Pretty Good Virginia Flake

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
You won't really notice the plum unless you retrohale. It's pretty good. It's not bland, but it isn't complex.
Happy accident!

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Well I confused this tobacco for Connoisseur’s Choice, bought this one instead and it wound up being a happy accident! The smokey Kentucky was a first for me, reminded me of the smell of BBQ places in Texas.

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
This Va/bur gets high marks. Consistent, delicious and a nice nic hit. Its smooth but substantial and has a fullness to it from the Burley, which adds a consistent oily cocoa bean and earthy/ espresso note. The earthiness of the Burley is softened by... Read More

I absolutely love this blend. I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of the tin note. Plum and apricot was quite present. However after letting it sit for a moment and packing it into my pipe, it mellowed into a perfectly balanced tobacco that pleased my pal... Read More

Soaking wet in the tin. Plum? Tastes like a bad cigar to me. Sorry about this review, just being honest.

Perfectly balanced burley flake with a berry topping. The berry topping is more apparent in the tin than in the smoke, but it is there and plays perfectly with the nutty cocoa of the burley. I’m not big on obvious flavorings but this one is a winner ... Read More

I found this one to be really bland. I'm definitely a Burley lover too. Not enough nutty or chocolate to it. Try at your own risk. Stick to Solani or dunhill flakes.
Fairly Strong With A Tasty Plum Flavor

don't get me wrong, it's not bad at all... but I was attracted by the description and let down by the smoke. Found it unremarkable really.
Straight Forward
September 22, 2018
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Just a great straight forward V-flake. If you smoke Virginia flake, you will probably like this one too. I do not find it as strong as the "3 dots" on this page might suggest.
Great Flake, Great Memories
August 14, 2018
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
University Flake was the first flake I ever tried nearly 20 years ago. It has the grassy, malty notes associated with these tobaccos, and always satisfies. Great flavor, and I love the aroma about half way down the bowl. Soooo good.
An Old Favourite
April 29, 2018

Given my first sample as a gift. Very dark, rich, and hearty. A satisfying blend with notes of malt and stewed fruit. I get real cravings for this smoke every so often..
One of the good ones.

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Of the Peterson tobaccos that I've had, this is one of my favorite. Great tin and room notes and a very pleasant smoke. For me, the plum comes through to the flavor, though it's very subtle.

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
This is a great easy smoking blend with a pleasant room aroma to it. There is a bit of sweetness to it, and maybe a topping, (I believe it's plum or berries) but I still enjoy it very much. I like to use this blend to break in new pipes.
Very Berry

Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
This is a very nice, complex smoke with a full body and a medium nicotine strength. I most definitely enjoy it as it can remind me of blueberry pancakes at times. The berry flavoring can be a bit too much for me at times so I tend to smoke this one a... Read More

Seems that the amount you get is Less then what's is stated in the New round tins seems they are weighing the tin along with the amount of tobacco I weigh the tobacco and it comes to just 33grams what a Ripoff.

This is very similar to Erinmore Flake, but stronger and with a distinct plum topping. Smokes nicely, deep flavors. A nice flake to have in the cupboard for occasional smokes.

Scored some of this stuff from a friend and I must say it's pretty decent. Not the most flavorful as other virgina/burley I've had. This stuff stays lit forever. Only had to fire up the bowl twice.

One of the best
February 06, 2015
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
this was one of my first virginias and still my favorite. There is a slight plum topping that comes out in the smoke. It is very subtle and sweet, it doesn't taste like a chemical. Most of the flavor is a mellow va taste, mild but flavorful.
Best Va flake to me
December 14, 2014
Product: Peterson University Flake 50g
Some people tastes some plum aroma, but not me. I swear I can't feel any chemical aroma, only the sweet fundamental note of Virginia, which is pretty strong but rounded up by the burley.
