Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake
I wanted to try this one from the getgo... it just looks so cool. I read around and basically decided to just fold it and stuff it. I think it worked. Great smoke, needed a little coaxing to get lit (expected) Perique and cav just rounded out the virginias. This is on my "A List"
PS Lux Twist Flake
The luxury line is a real treat. Simpler than the bullseye, but really letting the smoothness of the virginias showcase themselves.
This is a great tobacco, dont get me wrong, but I get a bitter taste from this one (metaphorically). This is a knock your socks off english. The raves are founded in fact. The scarcity... this is what I have a problem with (see Boswell Pipe Flame War) Good for them for creating a high-demand product. I won't be going out of my way to get my hands on it. If its in stock, and I'm at the store, I will buy it... and probably sell it on ebay for double. I would rather have a pound something else than a tin of Penzance.
Dan Tobacco Sweet honeydew vanilla
Good smoking, exactly what the title says. Sweet, though not cloying. Vanilla: check. Melon -- a stretch but maybe two or three puffs I could find a little melon and tropical fruit note. I enjoyed the smoke, but couldn't bring myself to spend money on a whole tin to smoke it once or twice a year.
