Here G. L. Pease produces thick-slices of broken flake in the Scottish tradition. Ripe Red Virginia tobaccos are combined with a generous measure of fine Louisiana Perique, and then pressed to marry the components and deepen the flavors. The cakes are sliced and gently broken before tinning. Fillmore presents an elegant sweetness and delightful piquancy, enhanced by a creamy richness that develops throughout the bowl. Sit back and enjoy a lovely, leisurely smoke!
This is one of my favorite VaPers. It has a wonderful bold Virginia flavor with a good amount of spice from the perique. I am not good at describing the notes and flavors I find in tobacco, but it's mildly sweet, rounded and had that perique zing. Aw... Read Moreesome. Read Less
Neatly arranged broken flakes that look like little sticks (or thick toothpicks). Perfect moisture. I do not rub it out, I directly stuff these flake sticks into the pipe for best results. Excellent smoking conditions. Pleasurable slow and cool burni... Read Moreng. Even if you draw at a higher pace, you never get tongue-bites, it only raises the temperature slightly, never up to a problem.
The blend is composed of Virginia and Perique exclusively; no casing, no flavouring. The Perique is much more peppery than fruity, and this pepper often dominates the smoke. The Virginia mainly releases bread notes and almost no sweetness. It irritates me that every bowl is quite different. Some may find this interesting. Personally I would prefer considerably less pepper out of the Perique here, and a wider palette of Virginia flavours. Read Less
What a good VaPer! The VA and Perique are well balanced so that neither dominates the flavor and, while there's a good amount Perique in the blend, it's not overwhelming but is a solid presence. Sipping helps keep it smooth, too.
First sniff of newly opened tin you get the expected red VA and perique notes but I detect a hint of Latakia smokiness which isn’t mentioned as being in it. Doesn’t really matter but does round out the flavor and isn’t really noticed when smoking. Ov... Read Moreerall a very good smoke! Reminds me of a refined Dunhills dark flake.
Update- put this stuff into a large bowl instead of the Sav 701 size bowl and oh man can you taste the Latakia! Still not a bad thing.....just unexpected. Read Less
I tried this blend for the first time desperately searching for a good all-day VaPer. The tin note, in my opinion, smells like bread..not a bakery, but plain sliced bread. There are hints of fruit of somesort, but mainly grassy bread. It has a stout ... Read Morespice, and refreshing piquant flavor. The nicotine strength was stronger than I expected it to be as well. I'll definitely be purchasing more of this fine blend. Read Less
This is an excellent blend and I love it. It smokes cool, dry, and doesn't bite. Tin aroma is sweet and very tangy with hints of plums and richness. Flavor profile is sweet and spicy. I think I'll go smoke some now.
