Peter Stokkebye – Luxury Twist Flake
In The Tin/Pouch
Oh man, this stuff smells great! ...
Another good review! Yes, the topping aroma is unique and quite pervasive. Two years ago I jarred some up in the (second) kitchen - I used to boil jars back then. One flake slipped between appliance/counter. I didn't bother going after it, what with boxes and pounds of tobacco to stuff into jars. To this day ... that room smells of LTF, its heavenly! And no, I don't smoke indoors, its that one flake happily disintegrating into blissful Stokkebye vapor. Wife never uses that kitchen, but I always get the quizzing look (glare) when she does wander into it.
I would quantify this blend as a "mild aromatic". The aroma is, as Nick may have mentioned, really great! Both unburnt and burnt, really nice taste/aroma. An excellent base of primo VAs makes this a real good one to stockpile. Yes, the 24oz (1.5lb) box with sufficient jars is something every cellar should periodically add to TAD. Note the square flakes make it a tough fill in a jar, but some tetris-like stacking dexterity provides 3.5oz worth storage in a 4oz (small) widemouth mason jar.
This one I prefer to rub out, or rather, pull into shreds. The square shape can be unraveled quite easily, and yields a nice bunch of ribbons. I tried fold n' stuff, but the odd shape didn't make a good plug in the pipe I usually smoke this blend in. A cool burner, and if it hasn't been mentioned, it smells great!
