Peretti Ampersand Flake

(3.75)
A semi-broken flake connecting the qualities of Bob Peretti's original artisanal Old Virginia Flake with a subtle hint of sweetness for today's pipe smoker. Medium in strength, with an excellent room note.
Notes: While serving overseas in World War 2, Bob Peretti enjoyed mature Virginia flake tobacco. When he came home, he set to creating his own. Despite its popularity, we had to discontinue it for several decades because we couldn't source some key ingredients.

Very sweet Virginia with a slight touch of spice and a buttery finish. To my pallet this is a flavored Virginia flake that tastes like salted caramel with a superior grade of base tobaccos. Whether you like that is a matter for you to take up. I am still on the fence as to whether this will become cloying. Smoked fresh from the bag with an hour dry time. Larger chunks folded and stuffed; bits and bobs topping the bowl. Stays lit very nicely. I find the flavor delicious, but not subtle. Yet the quality tobacco does come through.
Pipe Used: Custom stack bent poker
