Orlik Golden Sliced is a pressed flake tobacco that is produced by Orlik Tobacco Company. Orlik Golden sliced is available pretty much everywhere and comes in tins of 1.76 or 3.5 ounces. I have seen that it is available in pouches outside of the US.


There is a bit of debate on this tobacco. It is advertised that it uses “golden Virginia tobaccos with a touch of Perique”.


Depending on where you look there is a highly contested debate on whether the Golden Sliced actually contains Perique or Burley tobaccos. Since I am a “Pipe Dummy” I can’t comment on what the truth is, but this is the debate out there on the topic.


Here we go!

Orlik Golden Sliced

Brand: Orlik Tobacco Company

Package: 1.76 OZ Tin

Style: Non-Aromatic

Tobacco Used: Virginia and Perique

Casing: None

Cut: Flake

Bowls Smoked: Four

Date Purchased/Received: 11/1/2014

Pipe(s) Used: Savinelli Caramella Rustic 602

Price Point: $6.70 per 1.75 OZ Tin

Purchased: Gift from Catfish


Quick Note: I am working out a rating system, so stay tuned

Tin/Jar Note: It was sweet. There are notes of hay, caramel, citrus, and very subtle black pepper spice.

Tobacco Strength: Mild to Medium-ish

Room Note: It was enjoyable for me but I could see how people who don’t smoke cigars or are used to non-aromatic pipe tobacco might not enjoy it. I would compare it to smoke a Nicaragua puro.

Flavors: It was very sweet. Throughout the entire bowl the sweetness dominates and there are hints of cinnamon spice. There were notes of wood, which I would call oak that popped up during the bowl. There were very faint notes of citrus, which I would say were orange. Other than the sweetness, the rest of the notes you really had to focus on picking out.

Conclusion: I dug it. I wouldn’t say it was the most complex pipe tobacco I have smoked this far, say compared to the Frog Morton on the Bayou, but it was very enjoyable. The sweetness with the other notes mixed in provided a nice change of pace. I did find myself smoking faster due to the milder tobacco strength and got a bit of pipe bite.

I smoked two of my bowls by tearing the flake and two of them by folding the flake and putting it directly into the pipe. I definitely enjoyed the bowls where I tore the flake the best. This is probably because I am a dummy and folded the flake wrong.

Rating: For the price, it is really hard to beat. From my understanding the Golden Sliced will age well and I have picked up several tins to test this theory.

I was wondering if you would dig this.  The perique is there, but the VA flavors were bit much for more, didnt have the nuttyness I associate with burley.

I found this tobacco somewhat average. Nonetheless for the price point you can't go wrong.

Catfish - I did but the more I smoke pipe tobacco wise the more normal I find it. I smoked some Irish Flake last night, and WOW I am in love.

Marc - would love to hear your thoughts on VaPer's that you would prefer more.

Logan - Escudo Navy Deluxe is a good blend.

P&C's has one dollar off per tin on that right now.

One of my top blends that I keep multiple tins of is Bells Three Nuns. Excellent blend. It is more potent then Escudo.

It is a staple of most smokers aging bins. I have heard it ages extremely well.
