Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
5 month old Sixpence: quite good. Well made baked goods. A little spicy. A little sweet. Rich and complex with layers of dark flavor. Hints of bbq from the Kentuckys. The perique is really there for me. It fits in to my top choices. A real tr... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
Very rich and satisfying. Red Virginias and a generous amount of Perique. Description says dark fired Kentucky and I won't disagree, but the major players are the Va and Per. Broken flake, moisture was good from tin so it went directly into a jar.... Read More
I don't get it?
July 10, 2017
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
So, I am a fan of bolder blends, but generally can find the appeal of the subtler stuff. I am also a HUGE fan of Mr. Pease's work. That said, this stuff baffles me. It's very bland. I've tried aging it for a year, various levels of moisture, differen... Read More
Wow, What a Tobacco!!

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
This is simply a superb tobacco. It has a rich mellow flavor that epitomizes VaPers.

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
This will go into my rotation right beside Old Joe Krantz, my daily bowl stuffer. The Dark Fired Kentucky is nice little change of pace. It seems to add a little up front smoothness. I really enjoy perique. Perique is no small player in this blen... Read More
QC Issue?
April 18, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
Not sure what happened given the rave reviews and the fact that it’s a Pease blend. I didn’t get much rum/booze odor from my tin, and frankly all I tasted was the somewhat ‘bready’ virginias. I’m inclined to think I may have gotten a bad batch. May o... Read More
Grows on you
February 12, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 8oz
First impressions: Tin Note: Not the best; smells a bit like Silage (Fermented Corn Cattle Feed) or maybe a Rodent Cage with a hint of Apple Cinnamon. Burns fairly quick (is a somewhat dry flake). Smoke has a pretty warm temp to start, but Burns... Read More
Different in a good way
January 16, 2019
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
When you crack the tin, the first thing you get is a cognac/grape wine note. It does carry over into the flavor when smoked but really adds to the profile! Not your standard KyVaPer and in this case that is a good thing!
Very Rich
May 26, 2018
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
A very intriguing blend when cut with some mild Virginia. But on its own it's just too rich for me.
Ok, but dry
March 27, 2018
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 8oz
I've smoked a couple bowls since receiving this tin. Flavor was ok, tobacco was extremely dry. Probably could have been better if it had been a bit more moist and not so dry.
January 03, 2018
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
So complex. Not one I smoke often because I'm usually out and about and doing things while I have a clench happening. This is for sitting and smoking and thinking about what you are tasting. It's a sweet blend, but not a sweetness that's easy to desc... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 8oz
This review is for the 2 oz. Tin. The tin note is just wonderful. I wish i could inhale that scent forever. Fruity perique notes and wood smokey dark fired aroma combined with the hay notes of VA. The best part is this translates very well to the... Read More
Bold, Mysterious Smoke
July 07, 2017
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
Absolutely loved it. Smoked it right out of the tin without much drying time beforehand. Did a little rubbing and went at it. Greg Pease is a madman. This blend is pure genius. Not an everyday smoke for me as I'm not a Va/Per lover most days but wow!... Read More
Slightly more flavor than nothing.
June 08, 2017
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
I rubbed this out, let it dry an hour or so. Thank goodness I wasn't waiting just for the smoke. This had more flavor than OGS, but not much. Smooth would be what I could say that is positive about this. That's about all though.
Va/Per With Character

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 8oz
Topping is not too overt, great broken flake to rub out or fold into your pipe. Burns well with some drying and is a great option all day.

I do not like Dark Fired KY but I sure love this blend! This is the first Pease blend I fell in love with! Bravo

I had a bowlful last night with a friend. Id smoked 4 bowls through the day such as Kendal plug, Hal o the Wynd, Ramsgate, and St James flake. When I lit this up I was impressed. Really empressed. Even after my palate had been tested all day this one... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
First off, the tin note is absolutely delicious!! Fruity, meaty, almost like a full bodied bottle of red wine. I can't say enough about the tin note, wow! Must be the Kentucky, that gives this baby a boost like no other VaPar. An original, but what... Read More

This is a go-to tobacco for me, a good smoke every time. I am a huge fan of Dark Fired Kentucky and in Sixpence it is applied perfectly. It is fruity, earthy, nutty and a little spicy. It's in the top 5 of my rotation.

I didn't know tobacco could be so good, G. L. Pease certainly has a genius for pipe tobacco.

I too have entered the "dark paneled room" and found to my utter delight this fine blend by Mr.Pease. I can honestly say this is a master blend.Delicious! Mr.Pease you are a magician. Grazie mio amico.Bravo !
Top 5 For Me.

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
After reading the description I knew I just HAD to try a tin. It arrived a few days later along with several other tins, but this was the first to be opened. The aroma hit me instantly; I've never smelled anything like it. I knew if it tasted anthing... Read More
Wow! Nice and different!
January 08, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
The aroma and tin note was different, like a fruity aro, the taste was like a medium English, starts off mild, then works its way to a good strong, cool finish, pretty good! Might get more later! Highly recommend this one!
Odd flavour but nice smoke
January 04, 2016
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
It took me the entire tin to decide if I liked this one. The flavour reminded me of beer, or something close to it. I loved the strength, and it smoked dry to the bottom of the bowl.
Sixppence is good at anytime

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 8oz
This one really surprised me! I am glad I ordered the 8 oz. as I will need to order more soon. The broken fakes smoke slowly and have a rich very flavorful finish (hard to describe, a bit earthy). It smokes to a white powdery ash; a very clean burn w... Read More
A Surprisingly Good Tobacco
September 15, 2015
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
I am reluctant to smoke aromatic tobacco. That being said the excellent reviews certainly piqued my interest. Within days of receiving it, Sixpence has made the top 5 of my fav's! It has a surprisingly rich flavour which I find most satisfying.

This is a smooth smoke, with great earthly overtones. This is a great smoke in the afternoon, with that noon coffee or tea.

What a great smoke. Smooth and rich with no bite. Could be an all day smoke but I prefer in the afternoon or evening . Smokes well in all my pipes.
Excellent as always.

I've yet to have a bad Pease blend or anything close. I'm not personally a great fan of Dark Fired, but this is my favorite of the ones I've tried.
Sixpence: Bold flavor, great clarity
July 04, 2015
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
Nutty and somewhat woody Burley flavors are rounded with fruity Perique, and sweetened by soft Virginias. Slow smoking will keep the Burley bitters in check and generate complex and luxurious tastes. Great clarity, and distinct yet harmonious tobacco... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
I'm more of an aromatic lover, but I do love to try other tobaccos, and am I glad I tried this. The tin note is beautiful and the sliced flakes are perfectly humidified - no drying required. I'm not a fan of harsher smoke so when I tried a bowl of th... Read More
A Masterpiece.

Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
Exceptional. This is really something special, it has all the qualities of a great VaPer but then it has a little something extra, a slight touch of a mysterious Spirit/Liqueur...in my opinion tastes like Absinthe - just amazing:) Seems like it will... Read More
Amazing blend!
February 21, 2015
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
To date, the best tobacco I've put in my pipe. The smell when you open the tin is incredible...like sweet dried plums and figs. Forget smoking it, smells like you could eat the stuff! Bought a few extra tins that I'm cellaring and looking forward to ... Read More

"Savory" is a good descriptor
January 15, 2015
Product: G. L. Pease Sixpence 2oz
I find this blend the only one out there that's similar to Kingfisher while still being it's own beast. I'm almost finished with my first tin and I've been blown away with every bowl since the first. Once this is back in stock I'll be sure to stock... Read More
