Peterson Irish Flake

Today is Saint Patrickís Day. So I am smoking Peterson Irish Flake in a Stanwell 191 pipe. This flake tobacco is a blend of burley, Kentucky, and Virginia tobaccos and uses a slight sweet and floral casing. It rubs out easily into a course cut shag and requires minimal drying time (20 minutes). It lights well, and burns well.

At first light, the casing is rather forward, a bit too sweet at first. But the casing flavor disappears as you smoke down the bowl. The tobacco is pretty strong. The dark fired Kentucky and Burley dominate this tobacco. Flavors are strong and generous, full of deep dark tobacco flavors. Earth and leather come to mind.

This tobacco is very satisfying. If you enjoy strong dark fired tobaccos, this tobacco will satisfy.

Thanks Andy for sending me this tin.

Glad you enjoyed it. I didn't think to dry it for that long. Will need to do so next time.

I didn't think about smoking PIF yesterday! Bummer. Anyway, I usually let it sit for 30 minutes after rubbing it out before smoking it. I like it almost as much as Orlik Dark Strong Ky.

I've been contemplating this tobacco for a wee while, so after reading these thoughts I decided to give it a go and have added it to my most recent order. I'll share my thoughts after I've smoked a bowl

I just received a press release stating that Scandinavian Tobacco Group has acquired Peterson Tobacco. STG owns General Cigar too. Look for it on the magazine page soon.
