Peter Stokkebye 314 Dark Fired

Dark-fired Kentucky has been used in all kinds of tobacco products for many decades, but through the years, it was used less and less in pipe tobacco. But for the last fifteen years or so, it has undergone a renaissance. Peter Stokkebye 314 Dark Fired uses Kentucky seed tobacco that is hung in barns and smoked using aromatic woods. This is a potent tobacco that can be very assertive, so it's best to add it with a light hand until you're happy with the result. If you want to kick up a blend, 314 Dark Fired is an excellent option.

Surprised me
Light, crisp (literally), and just smokey and flavorful enough. As a blender, I have many ideas, but on it's own? Amazingly good. Out of my recent order of 5 or 6 tobaccos, this was kind of a add on. It dang near stole the show. More coming.

Excellent. Strong but not as
Excellent. Strong but not as strong as I thought it would be, but in a good way. One of my favorite tobaccos. I mix it with Stokkebye’s toasted burley and the combination is my favorite all time smoke. Simple and strong burley taste!

Not much to say. It's
Not much to say. It's dry but is loaded with flavor. It's a mixing tobacco, pure and simple.. I've rolled it on it's own a few times, but it's not really made for that. Interestingly though, I've mixed it with as little as 20 to 30 percent Virginia 701 (70 Kentucky-30 Virginia etc.) and that does work. Depends on the day.... All and all, I'm glad those guys take the time to make it. Of course that goes for all these tobaccos!

Smoky Goodness
I bought this tobacco for blending. I tried some on its own just to be able to identify its characteristics in my blend and see what it brings to it. For my purposes it accomplished what I wanted, a smoky aroma and balance to partner with my VAPer and give it a little more body. You can definitely taste the smoke. I used a 50/50 ratio VA/DF and to my taste it was just about right.

Excellent blending tobacco that smokes
Excellent blending tobacco that smokes nicely. Nice strong, smokey flavor of dark fire tobacco that is a great addition to anything you want to kick up a notch. I added 10% of this to my Balkan Supreme & B.S.O.S.M. match. 1, to half, to 10%

Great Mild Dark Fired
I really like Dark Fired Kentucky blends. When trying this one, It is a milder version and that is still good for me for a smoke at work. I enjoy it and will cellar some and order more to smoke. I may add some different blending tobacco and play with it. It is a good smoke for those starting out when leaving aromatics.

Lots of smoky flavor
Arrived very dry but easily rehydrates. A little harsh if smoked on its own but not terrible... great for blending. If you want to add some flavor & smokiness to your blend, but hate latakia, try this! The service here is unbeatable, buy with confidence

A little goes a long way.
I usually go through about an ounce a year of this stuff. I've put it in many mixes but it seems to do best in blends that have a good burley presence. I don't know why. Right now, this with Autumn Evening is my night time smoke. You do have to play around with this. Autumn evening was best at a 1:8 blend. Flying Dutchman and Troost Matches were best with a 1:4 blend. I use a small scale to make a few grams first and then mix in large numbers once I figure out the ratio I like. I learned the hard way after mixing too much of this with other blends when I first started. I seem to like Dark Fired in dutch style aromatics that have burley in it. I don't mix this into all of my blends. It comes dry wherever I have gotten it, but it rehydrates well. I cut down the long ribbons with scissors before I mix into the larger bulk. I tried crushing it with my fingers and sprinking it in like salt on a batch once and it just tasted too bitter. It tastes great when cut in that way, mixed in, and packed down hard for a few weeks.The flavors really marry well.

The Dark Fired Kentucky is
The Dark Fired Kentucky is Great! I use it with some of your other bulk blends to make my own mix which is actually featured in a local pipe/cigar shop/

Amazing straight. Mixes well.
This stuff is amazing just smoked straight! But dark fired kentucky plays well with others and this is no exception. I add it to my aromatics to give them some umph that I can feel and taste. It's particularly good to mix with those aromatics that are so aromatic that they don't much resemble tobacco; it adds nicotine, good tobacco flavor and goes well with everything.

As a later-in-the-day option, can’t beat this for the price.

Like a bass singers voice in a barbershop quartet
I don't believe that there's anything quite like this. It is a very professionally and well prepared tobacco. More of a shag cut than a pipe cut. Mixes well into any blend. It adds a bass note to Virginia and Virginia / burly mixtures. Quite dry. For blending a little goes a long way. Not a very good room note. My better half asked me what was burning.

A Winner
Good all day smoke. I smoke it straight and it's easy to light and stays lit without any fuss. I just ordered more that should say it all.

Unique and smokey!
Very unique and smokey, definitely a one of a kind. Leaves very nice, almost campfire room notes. I smoke this all by itself most of the time but it also does make a great addition to blends. One of my favorites!

Finger licking good
I've blended this with everything under the sun. It never fails. Smokey rich chocolate tones. Gives perique an even nicer fruit note. Great blended with three sails for ryo. Gives orientals a needed nic kick. Cavendish burns better. I like it mixed with black majesty, perique, and Latakia as of now.

Good tobacco
I haven't tried it straight, but mixed it 50/50 with the toasted burley and really liked it. Not as strong as I expected, nowhere near as potent as Peterson's Irish Flake which I love but can only take in very small doses. This is much more manageable.

Great to balance to other blends.

Pipe Heaven
Oh my goodness this is good! Full flavor solid tobacco taste. I confess to smoking this straight and loving every puff. Excellent to boost up a mellow blend as well. Just a touch of smoky flavor adds to the appeal of this outstanding leaf.

A great choice.
Though I prefer the "house" dark fired ketucky burley, this is perfect for when I need to spend a little less, or when the house version is backordered. Worth purchasing.

Peter Stokkebye's 314 Dark Fired is the one you are looking for if you want a full flavored tobacco that has all the flavors of real tobacco and no nonsense. No aromas or flavors added; just real, REAL tobacco taste. High nicotine content is the next thing you will notice. It is guaranteed to satisfy that itch you are trying to scratch. Smoke it straight, if you are the daring sort, or blend a little with that mixture that has the taste you love, but doesn't really have enough umpff. This is the one you load your favorite pipe with and sit in that old wood rocker on the back porch and enjoy a cold beverage as the sun goes down. That's it...
Customer Testimonials
This time when I bought the Dark Fired tobacco, I followed the suggestions of P and C's knowledgeable staff and "used it sparingly in a blend". I have enjoyed it much more than when I used it 1:1 with another tobacco. For instance, I blended 50% black Cavendish, 30% perique, 10% latakia, and 10% Dark Fired. It gave me a reasonably high nicotine content that is slow burning, and mellow without a bite. My wife says it has a great room note. And it goes great with a little sippin' whiskey.
