Review: Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake

Definitely, the neatest looking tobacco I've had so far. I am just hoping Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Bullseye Flake can hold up once in my pipe. So, I guess I'll break up some discs and see what happens. I should note that this blend replaced "Luxury Curly Cut" in 2006, and has become their best seller in the US.

Tin/Jar Note: First off, I am surprised by how sweet this unflavored tobacco is. The smell coming from the jar is that of grains and molasses. The resulting smell was the same as that of a bag of sweet feed, used to feed livestock. Very good.

Visual: The appearance of this tobacco is awesome. The rolled tobaccos, with the black cavendish center, make for great looking presentation.

Flavors: The flavors follow right behind the jar aromas. Lots of grain and hay-like notes, with a subtle sweetness from the black cavendish.

Smoking Experience: Awesome. The bullseye production of the tobacco not only looks great, but it makes preparing your pipe and tobacco fun too. Crumble up a couple discs, pack and enjoy. The burn was great, the flavors and smoke were pleasant and there was only the slightest tongue bite. Very enjoyable.

Conclusion: Loved it. One because the curly cut style just looks so good and two, because it was such a well rounded tobacco.
