Smooth Virginia flake with a hint of spice, and a kick
Had to try a can of Orlik Golden Sliced after reading all the reviews. It's as advertised: smooth sweet Virginia with just a touch of Perique. Smells grassy in the can. Smooth toasted Virginia taste. I do not get any of the citrus/orange it's supposed to have. I tried folding and stuffing it first. Then rubbed. Settled for cutting the sheets in thirds and a quick rub which gave me nice ribbons. Burns clean with almost no ash. Higher in nicotine than most brands I've tried.

Everyday smoke
Smoke this everyday has a great taste and is hard to get burnt out of. Taste of a light citrus with grass and hay like taste. I will have this in rotation the rest of my life.

Orlik Gold must try
The blend of Virginias and a hint of Perique rounds out the tobacco beautifully. A must try for beginers.

Wonderful tobacco
This is the first tin of Orlik I’ve had, and man let me tell you I couldn’t be happier. Never had a VaPer before. I get that grassy/ sweet taste upon initial draw and then a spicy peppery finish that’s not too overpowering. Love this!
4 out of 5
Tasty!
It is a very sweet blend and good for switching over from aromatics to non. However, its has Virginias so it will burn hotter. Slow and steady!

My favorite tobacco
I've tried numerous tobaccos, but I keep going back to this one. Love the flavor and the smell. The only negative is that it seems to burn pretty hot, but that could be my fault.

Orlik Golden Awesome
I'd say that most folks recommendations for this are spot-on. It's light, grassy, slightly sweet and wonderful. Smooth, tasty, and sure to be a favorite!

Orlick Golden (Flake)
Nice full flavor. Didn’t really make me jump out of my shoes though. A nice smoke once in a while, but not, in my opinion an everyday.

Starting to love Flake
This is a perfect intro to a Flake tobacco in my humble opinion. I love the smell right off the bat. A little citrusy, woodsy scent. Very nice smoke.

Outstanding!
A wonderful full bodied tobacco. Bright, sweet and tasty

Simply Awesome
I'm not giving you another wine commercial. So I'll put it bluntly:: Golden Slice is my absolute favorite tin. Every day! Simple, smooth, neither harsh nor mild -- and consistently good. Tart sweet and spicy -- all at the same time. It's my morning wakeup with a pot of coffee. After lunch. And even after dinner. I wish I could get it in bulk.

Top Choice
I have tried several flakes with Perique and settled on Orlik Golden Sliced. Just enough Perique without being overbearing. Not an everyday blend for me but when I want that VP taste Golden Sliced rises to the top.

Golden sliced
Let me start by saying that the perique is very very light so if you are afraid of the spice dont be but if you are looking for a perique power house look else where. It is one of the virginia flakes standard for a reason and one reason mostly because its reliable or boring for some people. One dimension sweet naturally sweet blend. May be overrated some times to be honest though. I assume it age well so thats an added plus but fresh not very unique. Intasted better flakes but some times you want that reliable taste every now and then. Some it slow as it tend to burn hot if abused. Room note is of hay,cig scent. Not overwhelming but not pleasent either. Al janabi

Well worth the money
If you like citrus, you'll like this...A citus flavor wih every draw, from start to finish, and a pleasing room-note....Expect a little bite, but, not too bad for an ocassional smoke....Definitely worth keeping in rotation, even if you're a English or Latakia fan...Great for a change of pace and your palate will thank you...Switch it up a bit, and get the full satisfying flavor of both worlds. THANK YOU, again P&C for your selections and service...Top notch in everything...

A slice of heaven
My taste and likes for different blends are constantly changing, but the one mainstay for me is Orlik Golden Sliced. I never grow tired of this tobacco slice of heaven. As long as it's in production, it will be in my rotation.

Orlik is Orlik
Some are better. Many more are worse. Orlik is Orlik. This ubiquitous tin is what the other Virginia flakes are compared to. The price that is asked for this tobacco is very reasonable considering the quality of the product. If you haven't tried it , you should, just so you understand what the baseline is for Virginia flake. This tobacco is markedly better if you let it rest in an unopened tin for a few years. So buy two; one to smoke now and see what it is like fresh, and one to smoke in a couple years. It is cheap. It is good. It is Orlik. Just smoke it like everybody else.
5 out of 5
Fantastic
I love this tobacco. I'm a cigar smoker so I keep getting English blends pushed on me. I'm not a big fan of those. I"m very happy i tried this Virginia. Tastes like sun warmed hay in summer. No bite, smokes a little hot and nicotine won't make itself known.

Excellent Navy Flake
A very satisfying, never at loss for interest, treatment of Virginia tobac. This and a subtle English do me just fine.

Awesome. Will be buying more
First tin of Orlik Golden Sliced. Very enjoyable. Tin aroma is bright and sweet. Maybe a bit reminicent of raisin bread. Pleasant toasty smoke. I personally have been enjoying it best on cool autumn evenings. Flakes from tin came clumped together in a big lump rather than defined individual flakes. Didn't really bother me because I prefer to rub out my flakes before packing anyway, but if you prefer to fold and stuff, you may find it a little difficult. Other than that 5/5. Will definitely be buying more.

I have grown to really
I have grown to really enjoy Virginia blends. Orlik Golden Sliced is among my favorites of the Virginias. And it also contains a small percentage of Perique tobacco. I bought 4 large tins to put away into my cellar. The aging process makes a great blend even better! Thanks for a wonderful deal for some excellent product! I also enjoy doing business with your company. Fast, accurate orders shipped to my door at good prices. What more could I want??!!

Good to the Last bowl!
There is a very slight spice note from the perique. I get a sweet, citrus with a slight tanginess and a fair amount of grass from the Virginia,The topping is mildly citrus flavor. The nic-hit is mild. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns a little slow, depending upon how you break up the flake, with a very clean and cool consistent flavor all the way through. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl, requires an average number of relights. An easy going all day, uncomplicated mild smoke that doesn't wear out its welcome.

Would Recommend
Really good, I quite enjoyed it. Probably my favorite at the moment. It was sweet, but naturally so, not from goopy casings. Burned well with very few relights (maybe one for me). What's not to love?

OGS is an OG
Orlik GS was my intro to Virginia flake. Granted, it is a VaPer, but the perique cannot be detected. Rather, it lifts the crisp Virginia and keeps it boyant so the smoke stays subtle, but never one-dimensional. I'm currently on the search for my ideal VaPer/Virginia. This is the tobacco that started it all for me. I may end my quest where I started; OGS is just that good. Never harsh, perfectly balanced

IT'S GREAT
this is the first time I tried this blend and I am pleased. I am 3 bowls down and I can tell this would be a great all day smoke. the flakes are really long and rub out really easy. I would definitely love to see how this stuff ages. would buy again.

Wonderful tin goodness
I used to smoke aromatics when I was young, stopped smoking pipes and now I'm back again. Started with My mix 965, which I love, then I decided to give VaPer's a try. Why in god's name did I not try golden sliced before?! Don't get me wrong I love a latakia strong English, but now I'm beginning to question it. Pretty sure I started going slack on the first puff, absolutely fantastic!

Great smoke
Like everything about this tobacco, great taste and aroma, easy on the palate,all at a reasonable price. If you like VaPer blends you should try the large tin.

This is a good decent smoke. I am new to VaPers so I can only compare to Cornell&Diehl Bayou Morning my favorite or Hearth&Home AJ's or Louisiana Red. Very close.

The best vapor I have had so far. Perfect balance tobacco. The moisture was perfect right out of tin. Love it so much I bought a few tins for aging. If you switching from aromatic this is you tobacco.

I like Golden Sliced
I read that the owner of another large Danish Tobacco Company really liked Golden Sliced even though it was not made by his firm and so tried it. I agree its a great Virginia flake easy to pack and light and tastes great

Great Mild Virginia
This is a very good beginner "mild" Virginia blend. You can tell that the tobacco is of a high quality. Good, clean tobacco, hay-like flavors with just a slight sweetness on the finish. I did not give 5-stars because I did not get any Perique notes from this blend period........ but that's just me. If you are looking for strength, it's not here. But if you need a break from a blend and a pleasant palate cleanser, this is worth the try.
4 out of 5
Great Intro Virginia!!!
This is a good starter Virginia. It has all of the characteristics of quality tobacco that has been processed at a minimum. It will give the typical grass-like tones with a light natural sweetness. I did not taste any perique, however, I usually smoke stronger tobaccos - maybe my mouth has lost nuanced detection. That being said, I did not give it a five because I thought it was a little too mild! If you are going to advertise perique, at least let me have a little spice. I got none out of this particular tin.
4 out of 5
A good, smooth smoke
I liked this one. It's moist which makes it easy to fold. I found it smooth with just a bit of a tang to it. It burns slowly and well and so is a good long smoke. Will definitely order more (my wife gave me this as a Christmas gift) and will try other blends by Orlik.

Bring back the ROUND Tins
This used to be a great Virginian flake (with a touch of Perique) smooth, buttery with natural sweetness & luscious full mouth feel. The flakes were perfectly cut for folding and struggling. The only reason to get a flake tobacco IMO. However, the new packaging in rectangular tins, as opposed to the previous round tins, have all but ruined it. The flakes are no longer distinct individual pieces. They now run together and crumble when I try to remove the flavors, making it hard to impossible to get uniform pieces for folding and struggling, thus ruining the flake smoking experience. Please bring back the ROUND TINS!!

Great to have on hand
Great change of pace tobacco. Smoke it occasioally in some of my small pipes for a taste treat.

Orlik Golden Sliced - Good "pure" Virginia flake
I am experimenting away from topped and cavendish blends, and I wanted a good pure tobacco smoke. I was also wanting to experience a sliced flake. This fit the bill on both counts. And has been a great success. Really good, smooth, tasty smoke. A little on the mild side, but that is fine with me. Moisture content out of the can was perfect. I have done both the fold method and the rubbed method with this flake. Both have worked well for me. If you are looking to try a "pure" smoke with not toppings or add-ons, or if you are looking to try a flake, give it a shot. i think you'll like it. I do.

Great tobacco plain and simple!
Good tobacco plain and simple. Don't expect big wow factor with this one, just a solid simple smoke that delivers good tobacco taste and enjoyment. I can see why so many like this blend.

Ols reliable,
I was smoking this one in the early 1990's and it never mentioned perique on the back label until recently. It's a very good Virginia with just a little Burley, but there is absolutely no perique in this. I guess Orlick figured they could increase they're sales if they mentioned it had perique. Believe me, they know the difference between burley and perique.

OGS has become a daily rotation smoke!
OGS has become one of my favorite flakes and a staple in my rotation. It's mild enough to smoke all day if I want to, but full enough flavor to taste all day as well. I've never had a complaint about the aroma (like I often do with Latakia blends). I would buy OGS by the pound in bulk if it was an option. If you enjoy Bright VA's, you can't go wrong with Orlik Golden Slices!
5 out of 5
An Excellent VaPer
Sweet Virginia, an all day smoke, but save it for a time when you can sit down and enjoy it. I prefer it to Dunhill Flake. It is similar to Iwan Ries' Virginia Slices, and I have mixed the two with good results.
3 out of 5
Beginning to grow on me.
I put 3 stars cuz as of right now I'm not completely fond of it but from what many tell me it'll grow on me with time and after smoking longer and know all the ins and outs I will appreciate the subtlness of certain notes in it and all aspects of the smoke. So only time will tell and if it does grow on me more I will put another review.

Nice, but nothing special
When I first opened this I thought it had a nice tin note. I proceeded to fold some and pack my pipe, a MM short stop. I had to light it a few times before it finally took off, but it was a pleasant smoke, nothing to write home about, though. About halfway through the sweet citrus flavor hit and, WOW! I thought, this stuff is awesome! I couldn'the wait to have some more! Unfortunately, I have yet to find the citrus flavor again. I have tried different pipes, letting it dry, crumbling it before packing, but nothing seems to work. So, I give it only four stars. If I can find the citrus again I will happily re-review it with five. If not, I may have to drop it to just three. It's a nice smoke, but without the citrus there's really not much special about it, to me.

This flake is tender and friable. It is easy to process and packs well. I love this flake. Wish it came in bulk.

Quality tobacco regardless of whether I liked it.
Fresh and well packed. I really wanted to like this due to the recommendations. But I think it just isn't my cup of tea. Seemed hot and harsh. I am a total newbie so that may be the issue. I also got some Dunhill Nightcap which i liked much better.

Great Mid-Morning Smoke for Hot Days
This was the first Va/(Per?) that I ever tried. Since I had no other experience with a tobacco of this sort I didn't know what to expect. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy OGS and it has earned a spot in my rotation. This is a perfect tobacco for the sweltering summer days in Florida where a robust English Blend would just be overkill. My favorite time to smoke this is late morning with a cup of tea with a little milk. There is something about the combination of the sweet, citrusy Virginias, the tea and the milk that almost seem like you are eating a delicate pastry. Word of advice, however, don't be overly aggressive with it as it could turn cigarettish. If that happens, set it down and give it a minute to cool. Then tamp and relight and treat it well.

wretched profaning of a superior smoke
I am really disappointed with how moist,and limp flavored the tobacco in this tin is compared to to the 1.76 oz tin.There was an actually stain on the inner paper from the moisture. It is the small tins for me from now on,whose flavor is top notch.

Orlik golden sliced is a great virginia tobacco. Delicious smell and flavor. Perfect moisture content no drying time needed. Great for hot summer days.

For another type of palate
I purchased Orlik Golden Sliced based upon strong recommendations from some fellas on a social media site for pipe-smoker enthusiasts. It happens to be a standard, "go-to" for many of them. I loved the flake cut, breaking off pieces and rubbing them to load the bowl, and it does have a very pleasant tin smell. It also is not so strong that a part-timer like myself can't smoke it in back-to-back sessions. I still prefer MacBaren's Virginia No. 1, as I find it to have more flavor, more body and a more pronounced 'sweetness' but the Orlik flake is obviously top notch and will remain in my regular rotation.

This blend is wonderful fresh out of the tin. Despite the budget price the virginias really shine and provide excellent flavor. A great blend to stock up on as it will only improve with age.

Surprised that it came in a strand instead of slices,but really good stuff. Packs,lights,burns,and taste great. Will definitely buy again.

A Daily Smoke For Me!
Orlik Golden Sliced is a reliable, refreshing, clean smoke that I can always count on -- all day, every day. The Virginias are sweet and buttery soft, but still have a crisp taste. The Perique is very slight. That doesn't mean it's role should be overlooked. I can't seem to find another tobacco that tastes like this -- some VaPers come close, but there is something special that I can't quite put my finger on which makes this one stand out. I prefer the way the flakes are cut in the 1.76 oz tin (vs. the 3.5 oz tin). I've had both and will go back to buying several 1.76 oz tins. They just tasted better to me for some reason.

Orlik Golden Sliced Stands Alone
Orlik Golden Sliced is a legend in pipe tobacco that always satisfies. And the taste, hard for me to describe, is always right on top of my favorites list. The tin says it is Virginia tobacco that is aged and sliced into cakes and has citrus and orange notes. I have not tasted all the good Virginia's but I am sure you will like this one, a sweet rich tobacco blend everyone loves.

Orlik Golden Sliced - Sweet and Honest
This blend of Virginia with just a touch of spicy Perique became my every day smoke after the very first bowl. I remember being initially impressed with the simple sweet richness of the Virginia used in this mixture - a mild round fresh flavor with hints of freshly mown hay. And as the bowl progressed, I found that the flavor opened up even further, becoming more interesting and satisfying as the gentle complexity of the Perique insinuated the palate. And yet there was no bite even when smoked at a goodly pace. Burns to a white ash, yet burns slowly and easily due to the shag cut. This is a simple, honest tobacco and , as far as I am concerned, the best Virginia blend out there.
4 out of 5
The perique is barely noticeable but it doesn't matter. It is a great tasting flake and there is a reason its a classic.
More full virginia than va/per but tasty

One of my favorites
Great blend perfect all day smoke. The room note can be tough on others who don't smoke. This blend is why I love Virginias.

Light,sweet with a bit of perique bite if you smoke it to fast. This will be my go to when I'm tired of the English blends I favor.

My Favorite Virginia Flake
I remember meeting Peter Stokkibye and finding this to be his favorite blend. If someone asked me what I now prefer it would be Orlik's Golden sliced. It is a true tobacco taste Virginia/Perique blend that can be smoked all day. It never varies and I like the idea that I can fold and stuff two flakes for a nice long smoke. Grassy citrus notes are there but never any bite.Very high grade Virginia leaf at an affordable price. I like the small tin packaging better than the larger round tin since the flakes are easier to handle than the "hayroll" of the larger tin. This has even surpassed FVF from Sam Gawith for me.

The Very Best VaPer I Have Ever Smoked.
I tried this because I heard all the rave reviews about it. The only other VaPer I had ever tried was Viprati, and I thought it was horrible (one person's junk is another's treasure...). Opening the tin, I was greeted by a wonderful, citrus-y, hay-like aroma, and the Yellow Virginia really stood out. I rubbed it out and loaded it into my Mr. Brog Scoot pipe. It lit easily and burned well. I have heard people say there is no Perique in this, but I could definitely taste the Perique...not strong, but just about right. A slight spicy-peppery after-taste, like a small pinch of cayenne pepper in gumbo. Enough to be interesting without being assertive. The Virginia was wonderfully tangy and sweet, all at the same time, but not a sugary-sweet. More like Honeysuckle off the vine. Just a natural sweetness that melded with everything else. It had a good medium body, and not too harsh, or too mild (a problem I have with aromatics). I guess the room note was OK, because my wife did not complain. It burned to a nice ash, all the way to the bottom with only one re-light (probably packed it too tight...). Never a bite or gurgle. It left me wanting more.... It will be in my permanent rotation from now on.

Good everyday blend.
This is the second tobacco I've tried as a new pipe smoker. First off it's really mild. I'd say around a mild cigar but maybe even a bit milder in flavor than that. The flavor it does have is a rich sweet orange with a bit of a pepper spice. It's mild-medium bodied and gives enough of a kick to relax I just wish the flavor was a bit more there. Didn't notice any tongue bite and I tend to be a faster smoker. Good room note, good for beginners, probably gonna look for something with a bit more flavor though.

My first venture into non-aromatics!
I've only smoked aromatics but recently wanted to try something a little "more". Not too much because I can suffer from nicotine dizziness fairly easily. I saw a Youtube video on the "Stuff & Things" channel and Bradley stated that this was his first tobacco that wasn't an aromatic and, for the first time, he really enjoyed smoking his pipe. So I thought I'd give it a shot. I ordered a tin from P&C and waited patiently. When the tin arrived, I immediately opened it and inhaled deeply. "Wow," I thought, "this smells great!" I took out one of the flakes, rubbed it out, and loaded my Peterson Deluxe 5s System Pipe I got this last Christmas. I smoked that first bowl slowly to make certain I didn't get any of nicotine dizziness. It burned evenly without any tongue bite. All-in-all, it was a very smooth, mellow, smoke. While I can't yet detect any of the subtleties that other have but I can testify to the Perique as there's definitely a pepper spice in the nostril and mouth. I'm not sure what it is, but I keep coming back to this tobacco. Because of it, I've ordered some mild English blends to see if I like those, too.

Lives up to the hype.
This tobacco is a classic for a reason. Should be every pipers first departure from aromatics. Super mellow and mild flavor. Smoked cool and sweet with a really nice room note.

Great smoke, citrus notes are great! Cool smoke and no need to mix with any other!
Let me tell ya... This a very good smoke and the citrus notes come through like a song bird! It smokes cool, chain hits, 3 and 4 at a time stay cool and flavorful and taste stays right on. I did try and dip some and the notes were even stronger, so double duty 4 me.

Golden Sliced
This is a great tobacco to enjoy out on the deck with your favorite briar. I have been a big fan of flake tobaccos.

First time Virginia smoker
I'm a new pipe smoker, and typically prefer aromatics. I wanted to try a Virginia Flake and went with Orlik Golden sliced based on reviews. I have to say that most user reviews of tobacco on P&C are accurate. This tobacco is beautifully prepared into symetrical flakes, rub out easily (if you prefer), and burn slow and cool. My preferred method is a combo of roll/fold to acquire a richer smoke that is a nice break from the heavily cases blends I typicaly reach for. Very little to no tounge bite, smooth, slight hints of citrus hay, very easy smoke.

It wont disappoint
I would like to give it 3 1/2 stars, but it wont let me. A solid, mild VaPer. It smokes cool and sweet. I know some deny the perique, but I can taste it.

Great smokes!! Batman
So if you like Erinmore flake Im pretty sure you will like this( made by the same company) I do the fold and stuff method which works fine. It has just a touch of perique like it says but exhale through the nose and its on like donkey kong! I will surely keep this as a regular in my rotation. love it!

Great smoke
I am sitting here delightedly puffing on my first ever flake in a Grabow grand duke. Though I knew it might be a risky rookie move I chose to fold and stuff. I would say my need to relight has been less than I do on ribbon cuts, apparently this flake and I have an understanding that I just can't get the ribbons on board with. When I first lit it I got about 6 puffs out of the charring light and then my daughter needed something. So it took me a few hours to get back and relight. I spent those hours craving this light citrus and hay taste that I had just begun to experience. This is an automatic favorite for me.

I have tried a few flake tobaccos, and they have all given me a bit of trouble burning, an they all seemed carry along some gnarly tongue bit. Orlik Golden Sliced is one of my favorite summer smokes. It burns perfect, taste great, and never bites! I like to accompany this smoke with a wheat beer.

Everyday smoke for sure.
Newer to pipe smoking but can tell you it's in my everyday rotation and multiple visits are common. Started out an aro smoker then English and have found I like them all but Orlik Golden Sliced... tops in my book.

Should have tried this one sooner. It's good.
Very pleasant tobacco flavor with a little something else, citrus? floral? I'm no expert in describing flavors but this one is a winner. This is going to be a favorite.

Famous Smoke
Being new to pipe smoking I watched many reviews on different tobaccos and this particular tin was a favorite among pipe enthusiasts. I tried and was not disappointed. Easy to smoke, mellow, and cetainly is a well rounded Virginian tobacco. It will be a regular in my rotation.

Orlik Golden Sliced
A very distinguished Virginia flake in the best old English style. For those that dislike Perique (are there such?)the perique flavor is evanescent. A golden Virginia flake still made in the old tradition, I do not remember smoking it in my early days in England. Scandinavian Tobacco's version should hit the spot for those like me that love Virginia flake. I give it 8/10.

Customer Testimonials
I smoke a little bit of everything, but my most enjoyable smokes are full-bodied, smoky, Latakia blends. I do enjoy an occasional VaPer (mostly Escudo) or even an aromatic from time to time. Hearing all the great reviews about OGS, I was excited to try it, so I threw a can in on my last order. Opening the can, the flakes were beautiful, about the right moisture, and just a gorgeous presentation. It had the nice, sweet and grassy smell of Virginias, and I could barely smell the Perique. I rubbed it out first and it felt great in the hand, so I was REALLY looking forward to smoking this! Unfortunately for me, that was the END of my enjoyment of this blend. I found it burned very hot, and tasted very "cigarettey." I was stunned at how unpleasant this was for me. It was so unpleasant that I dumped it out after several minutes of trying to get into it. For the record, I've only dumped out one or two other blends in my smoking history of close to several dozen different blends. Now, I don't give up on a blend until I've tried it a few more times over a several months and let it age a little, so we'll see how it fares down the road, but for in my opinion, and to my palette, it was DEFINITELY on the "Do not recommend" list.
What can I say about this tobacco that hasn't already been said. It is great and I will always keep some of this in stock!
I really don't know why I haven't had this blend until recently. Very nice Danish tobacco, some of the flakes/cavendish blends from Denmark can be a little rough around the edges...but not this one. A nice little Virginia sweetness to it keeps it interesting and no rough edges, smooth smoke. This is my kind of pipe tobacco.
My first flake since taking up pipe smoking three years ago. Tried the fold and stuff method and was met with complete failure, I guess I'm not ready for that yet. Then rubbed it out and had a completely different smoke. Very nice with no bite.
Definitely a quality flake. Unlike any other Virginias or VaPers I've tried. There's a huge Palmolive and black pepper tin note and taste that mellows with age. Not my favorite, but definitely quality stuff. May see how it does with a few years on it.
One of the first tobaccos I smoked, still a favorite and a great daily smoke, sweet virginias with a definite citrus note.
This is one fine smooth smoke. Quality tobacco that unrolls from the flat pressed flake easily in your fingers and packs nicely and burns cool white smoke like you're Gandalf. This would be prime smoke ring material. You can smoke pipe after pipe of this without your head swimming or getting a bitter taste.
I got a tin of this in the pipe club of month and just recently opened it, haven't been able to smoke anything else as this is just so good! Sadly it's almost gone. Says "High Grade Pipe Tobacco" on the tin and boy do they mean it!
I found this mild, clean smoke hints of well if I'd had to describe juniper or a little soapy. It's easily a daily smoke as calm as white wine. Funny thing and I'm sure it's just me but the smoke almost looked blue come out.
Smoking some of this right now for the first time. It's a great smoke! Nice mouth feel. Mellow flavor. Stays lit easily. My new favorite!
I really like these flakes. I only smoked aromatics prior to trying several Orlik blends. I don't think I'll be going back to the aromatics (not very often anyway). I enjoy the clean tobacco flavor of Golden Sliced very much. The flakes don't have a lot of different flavors present, but the flavor they have is very pleasing. I have found out the flakes burn best when broken up prior to packing the bowl (as apposed to folding). These flakes inspired me to take the plunge and order several higher priced English and Virgina tobaccos. I'm looking forward to finding out what fits my pallet the best. I believe another reviewer stated Golden Flake was a perfect transitional tobacco for an aromatic smoker, I completely agree.
Best va flake I've tryed never want this pipe to end citrus notes outstanding I will definitely storing many tins in my celler
Very nice, mild everyday smoke with an abundance of rich flavor that doesn't play out at the end of the bowl.
This an awesome VA.
Have tried a lot of different tobacco looking for just the right one as a standard. Orlik Golden Slice is the first one to "WOW" me. Great taste, no bite, smokes great stuffed or rubber. I highly recommend this tobacco.
My favorite flake hands down. Kind of "bitey," but tastes great. If you haven't tried it, get it.
I smoked pipes as a hobby but got away from them when I began smoking cigars about 20 years ago. I have since begun to enjoy a pipe again and I have been searching for some good tobacco to smoke. I started experimenting with aromatic tobaccos only but decided to venture into non aros recently. Orlik GS has made me wonder if I have been wasting my time up until now. Wow this is an excellent tobacco! I love the creaminess and mellow sweetness of this beauty. I was afraid non aromatic tobacco would be too much but it is quite the opposite. No bite and just pure tobacco flavor. I'm sure I will still enjoy my RLP-6 but as far as I am concerned I wish I had tried this a long time ago! I can't stop smoking this!
Really enjoyed this. It was my first venture into VaPers... so once I learned how to smoke it and what pipe to pair it with, I enjoy it very much. Hate that I missed having it during the summer because it would be excellent being out in the warm sunshine with it.
A favorite of mine, I am a big fan of Virginia tobaccos. Orlik golden slice is a very good mix of Virginia'a to provied a smooth mild smoke. I smoke most Va's in a small bowl and take my time, the sugar content in Orlik is somewhat high so watch for over heating the the bowl. I have several tins in my cellar, and buy more when I can.
Smooth Virgia taste with a light Perique zing, and a subtle sweetness.
Great smoke has become one of my favorites. Highly recommend.
Love, Love this stuff. Started pipe smoking last month and smoke two to three bowls a day. This is always one of my three I choose.
while it is a well made tobacco, I found that OGS burned too hot for my pipe, so much so that I think that will long term use it could ruin it. I think this tobacco is better suited for a corncob pipe or a hand rolled. That way you wont have to worry about the heat, and you'll still get the great flavor this tobacco has.
Dagner was right! Smooth, mellow, and nice flavor. Packed a bowl as soon as I unwrapped it, heaven in a bowl.
OGS is a classic Virginia blend. Mild, lemon/citrus flavors that come from naturally curing the tobacco, with just a touch of Perique to round it out. A pleasure to smoke and a good tobacco for a beginner who may be looking to step beyond aromatics. Seasoned pipe smokers appreciate it for it's pure, simple quality. You will never go wrong with Orlik, guaranteed.
Delicious stuff. If you love Virginias you will love this. Burns nice, tastes better.
A must have for those who enjoy flakes. This was my first Virginia flake, and the more varieties I try, the more I appreciate it. I've only had 7-8 others, but this one is the best so far. The only comparable product, for me, is the Mac Baren Virginia Flake. It is slightly different, likely due to the absence of the Perique that exists in the Orlik, but is nearly as good. Orlik takes the top prize due to that extra little flavor and the fact that it cost 20-25% less per tin.
This was the first flake tobacco I tried. It is smooth the taste is of pure, well aged Virginia. I was surprised how easily lit and burned very well, despite being quite moist. For some reason, it seem a bit harsh in my nose, leaving a slight burning sensation. This disappeared after the 2nd bowl. I attribute this to my pallet adjusting to a new type of tobacco. A great choice for the first time flake smoker.
Not a bad tobacco, but if you're looking for a heavy perique blend this isn't it.
loved it wish I bought more instead of the other stuff, I will miss it while I smoke my other tins. They probably won't go fast enough for me.
I'm very much in the middle on Orlik Golden Sliced. I found it to be not good, but not bad... mostly just pretty bland to me. It smokes pretty well, but... I must be honest when I say that I found it to be pretty underwhelming and kinda boring. It's not a tobacco that I plan on ordering again.
A great way to move away from aromatics and the perfect first flake. Sweet and a balanced spice to familiarize yourself with the style.
A really mellow smoke with no bite . will order again
This was the first flake tobacco I tried. I have to say it's not bad, I kind of like it! Has a fruity kind of aroma. Smokes nice. I will definitely keep smoking this one!
Don't overlook this gem! If you're exploring flakes, this one is up there with Dunhill Flake and Peterson University Flake. And at a much better price. I actually prefer it over Capstan, which is literally TWICE this price! Drop a tin in the cart. You won't be sorry.
this is my #1 daily smoke so if you like Va. flake you need to try this one
Some friends recommended this tobacco and I am glad they did. This is one I smoke every day. Nice, mild, and no bite to the tongue. I highly recommend this stuff.
