I loaded up in a medium bowled pipe and enjoyed a rich, straight forward, no frills smoke that provided just a slight hint of sweetness. If you are new to smoking, puff slowly as Peterson's Irish Flake, quite frankly, was made exclusively for the full scrotum crowd. Has the foundation of dark fire cure throughout, even with small gentle puffs the deep fire cure rose from from the back of my throat to my nasal cavity. Room note: I asked my wife what she smelled she said, "smells sweet," and like "tea." I realized that was the taste I couldn't quite figure out..After reading the reviews I took away what I should... With that I knew not to smoke on an empty stomach and show respect with small easy puffs. It's dark like an earl grey tea bag you left in too long, this is on top of the fire cure.Burns cool, clean and slow with no dottle, and leaves some moisture in the bowl, so you may want to dry it a little first. Experience told me I'd be in heaven once I got it in my pipe. Even with a few gentle puffs I could feel my heart race and my consciousness slowly disconnect as my body began to react to this high octane nicotine.Due to the moisture content, I let this one dry out for about half an hour after first giving the flake a good rubbing out. And, the flavor was that of a heavily stoved and strong Virginia with perhaps a smidgen of added flavoring. Taste: This is the first tobacco I smoked that tasted like the bouquet of the tin, however it was that (fresh sweet natural tobacco) but VERY deep.It's probably the other tobaccos faintly peeking through.I recommend having this in your inventory but for me it's not an everyday smoke. This would pair well after a fine meal of steak and potato.We don’t necessarily need to meet each other in order to communicate, because we’ve got cell phones, computers, Internet, webcams that simplify this process and make it really convenient, especially if the person you would like to have chat with lives far away from your neighborhood.
Uni Flake is great, Irish Oak is good and popular, Sherlock Holmes I love apart from its inappropriate name, Sunset Breeze is a sweet aro of good repute that doesn't bite two much and I'm looking forward to trying my tin of strong Irish whiskey sitting in the cellar. It is strong and sweet, fruity with hints of anise and Erinmore with a perfumey lakeland ripple brushing the pebbled beach.
It fits Peterson's so well, it redeems them when their pipes take too long to break-in or burn too hot or for not making enough filter pipes and when they do sending them all to Germany.
