Re: Peterson - Irish Flake

A great tobacco and an even greater review! Thanks, as always. I like IF as a coffee smoke. Usually I do tea with pipes. But IF is just a good ole tabak that deserves a cup of coffee and an early morning.

Re: Peterson - Irish Flake

Great review Nick. At one point, closer to when I was transitioning from cigars and really getting into the pipe, this was my favorite tobacco. My tastes have changed a lot, but I still have a special place in my cellar for IF - I just don't reach for it as often as I once did. Your description of "earthiness, like a camp after a fresh rain" is spot on IMO. Nicely done!

Re: Peterson - Irish Flake

Super review, Nick! :tu Your take on Irish Flake is a lot like mine. I enjoy it straight, but like John, I tend to mix it with something to add some complexity, especially Vanilla Cream Flake (which I'm out of! :frown. It is strong, but there are certainly stronger out there -- not that it's weak by any means! I've been through a few tins of it at this point and will keep it in my rotation into the foreseeable future.

Thanks. Yes I tried University Flake a long time ago when I was first getting into flakes, needless to say it was kind of a frustrating experience trying to figure out how to smoke a flake, but remember liking it... I have a tin in my cellar along with some other Peterson blends. When I pop them open I will post reviews of them.

Re: Peterson - Irish Flake

Thanks. I'm glad everyone is enjoying them, though I am always open to suggestions on how to make them better. I am trying to answer the things I always wonder when I see a new tobacco, and I think the pictures are a big part of that (I always wonder what a tobacco looks like)... of course reviews are always a "your experience may differ" kind of thing, but I'm glad everyone is enjoying them.

Re: Peterson - Irish Flake

Great review Nick, and nice format, full of information. My take on IF is similar, it's strong in Vitamin N and taste, but not a regular smoke for me. I tend to smoke a few flakes straight and then mix them up with "lighter" tobaccos to put some kick in them.
