Peterson Flake

(3.55)
Brown Virginia Pipe Tobacco. Pressed first and then delicately cut into fine slices.
Notes: Description from old Dunhill store catalogs: Flake (aka Light Flake): This ‘processed’ Virginia is a cut flake of medium strength, very cool, and has a pleasant, slightly sweet flavour and aroma (1959) [Lemon and Bronze Virginias, ideal for sportsmen - 1985]. Formerly known as Dunhill Flake, STG has changed the brand name from "Dunhill" to "Peterson".

Flat, uninspired. It makes a decent summer morning smoke, but there is nothing to recommend it over Full Virginia Flake or Best Brown Flake or Stokkebye's Luxury Twist Flake or any number of other fantastic VA flakes.

The presentation is top notch though, maybe keep a tin for when you need to convince someone that you are refined.
Age When Smoked: 10 months

I find it harsh in the nose, when breathing either smoke coming from the bowl or when I puff out. Less appealing than a Virginia/Cavendish blend that I buy for half the price.
