Peter Stokkebye's Cube Cut is an American blend of air-cured toasted Burley leaves from Tennessee and aged red Virginias have been pressed into cakes and cross cut into small squares for easy filing of the pipe and slow burning.
I love this blend! PS makes some great blends, and this is one of 'em. Its casing or topping has a very mild flavor that's nearly identical to the one that they use for LNF, and changed only by the component tobaccos. It's nutty and smooth, with hint... Read Mores of cocoa (read: hints. it is not an aro. by any stretch). It has that classic Burley blend flavor like Carter Hall—without going flat halfway through the pipe. Additionally, there's a good deal of Virigina flavor in the mix. It's got a flavor strength that's halfway between mild and strong, so it'll likely appeal to many pipers. It's nicotine strength is about 4/10; not strong at all but not "decaf" (de-nic?). This ¼" cut cubes are extremely compacted—almost like mini plugs! If you don't rub 'em out and simply dry them, a small pile in your pipe will provide a seemingly endless smoke, which requires almost no tamping (a huge bonus for travel smoking). The super-compacted cube cut is the only thing that will likely throw some pipers off—it takes a while to dry out if you don't rub the cubes out a bit. Once you figure out how you like to prep it, it's one heck of a good puff (yes, it's one of those). The reward outweighs any initial hassles. As with many tobaccos that require prep or significant drying time, how you choose to prep it will also change the flavor (it's not wet, just average moisture in very compacted cubes). This is an excellent blend for on the go smoking, given its long burn time, and it doesn't dry out crumble to dust easily either. It has a great pouch note, and that classic Burley room note to boot. This is everything you wish Carter Hall could be and more—just a bit more money, but worth every penny! Read Less
This was one of my first burley blends to smoke. I was quite pleased with how easy it was to pack a bowl with these tiny little cubes.

This blend definitely needs to be talked about more. Most people pass it off as a blending tobacco or are scared of by the cut. This stuff is excellent by itself and the cut is easy to work with after a little practice. I like to slightly rub it out ... Read Moreand gravity fill. Wider more shallow pipes work best as it tends to expand quite a bit. May require a few extra re-lights but nothing cumbersome. Be sure to use a pipe cleaner to block the airway when packing. Nice naturally sweet and nutty flavor. The virginia and burley blend perfectly together. Hints of cocoa and spice from time to time. If you are a virginia smoker that wants something slightly different with a little more body this is it. If you are a burley smoker that wants something with a little more sweetness but still smooth this is it. If you have tried burley blends and they are a little to strong or harsh give this a try. It is much more friendly. Read Less
I like Burley blends and tried this one shortly after receiving it. However, it was too much work to rub out so just lit it as is. Took a lot of finesse to keep it going didn't provide much flavor. Jarred it for about 9 months now and decided to... Read More try again. It tastes ok, especially at the beginning of the bowl but by the 75% done mark the flavors go away until about 90% finished. Very mild with touches of sweetness from time to time. The topping smell REALLY showed up after storing whereas I couldn't smell it at all to begin with. After aging in the jar it smells lightly sweet with a touch of fruit like citrus. Smoking it you only get that citrus flavor sense maybe twice a bowl. I've tried it as cubes and rubbing it out and either way burns slow, nothing fancy, decent taste when you get some, and cool burning. I will not be ordering again since there are better Burleys our there and this is too much work for what you get. I add it now to my aromatics since it allows for a longer smoke. Pipe on! Read Less

I have found Stokkebye’s Cube Cut Burley to be a very tasty blend of (mostly) burley and Virginia tobaccos which have been pressed together in layers for a time, then sliced, and then diced (cutting across the slices) to form nice little cubes. It’s ... Read Morebasically minced tobacco, and it is an uncommon cut to find these days. As noted in other reviews, just gravity-feed the cubes into your bowl and very gently tamp. Leave some space at the top of the bowl as the cubes expand considerably upon lighting. This tobacco seemed at about the right moisture level and it was easy to light and to keep lit. It burned nicely to the bottom of the bowl. There was lots of nutty burley flavor with the Virginia providing a touch of sweetness. This blend is fairly similar to Carter Hall, Prince Albert, Chatham Manor and the like, except it seem a bit more robust to me. Lots of burley flavor, not too much nicotine, and still mild enough to be an all day smoke for me. And all at a very good price. If you like burley-based blends, you’ll like this. I highly recommend it! Read Less

I didn't think I was much of a burley fan, and I'm not sure just how much burley is in this blend, but I really like it. I like the cut-- it packed extremely easily and burned equally so.

I let the loaded bowl sit overnight for a little drying time and... Read More so it was ready to fire up! After breakfast, coffee and that bowl followed me to the patio. It was a partly cloudy Oregon morning. I had read the reviews and then looked at the cost, and they just didnt add up. The tobacco is very affordable and has great reviews. This tobacco has a wonderful natural sweet tobacco taste. It does take some lights, but that cut tends to need a few. Medium to above medium in the nicotine. Good amount of smoke. I enjoy smokey tobaccos and not the wispy smoke. For anyone that enjoys Peter Stok Navy Flake, Luxury Bullseye, etc. This tobacco will satisfy. The price is a bonus. Ease of packing and flavor made this a winner! Highly recommended! Read Less

The third is a series of reviews on Peter Stokkebye's more naturally flavored tobaccos, the other two being Cube Cut and Aromatic Dutch Slices. No appreciable aroma other than that of fine tobacco, and like the other two previously reviewed tobaccos,... Read More NDC was easy to load and light. The overall smoking characteristics were outstanding and similar to those already mentioned. This one, for me, was more Virginia forward (but not hay like) and had more of a spiciness/sharpness while exhaling through the nose. A very naturally tasting smoke and very appealing. A bit more tingling on the tongue than the other two but no bite to speak of. Smoked dry to the heel, without moisture or dottle, and maintained a very nice, pure tobacco taste throughout the smoke. Solid smoking experience and for me but would have preferred a more, fuller tasting Burley in the mix. A good set it and forget it type of smoke and along with the other three, very affordable.

I had no problem lighting this nor keeping it lit. It didn'... Read Moret rise out from the bowl while lighting as others have described either. I am more inclined to natural tasting tobaccos, enjoying Irish Flake, Burley Slice, and Aged Burley Flake. PS Cube Cut fits in very nicely for me. It is milder than the three mentioned, but a very set-it-and-forget-it smoke. The pouch aroma did translate into the smoke; mildly, never cloying, and pleasant. Reminded me of the original Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, which was a cube cut. Smoked clean and dry to the heel of the pipe, maintaining consistency of burn and flavor without moisture or dottle. No bite to speak of. Just a mild tongue tingle with heavy puffing and the nicotine presence, for me, was mild. This is in league with the best of the Codger Burleys - actually better in my opinion. No chemical taste whatsoever. A nice all day, everyday type of smoke for my tastes and will definitely be added to my rotation. Those seeking a replacement for ERR need not look any further. Highly recommended! Read Less
