Peter Stokkebye 83 Amsterdam

Peter Stokkebye’s No. 83 Amsterdam pipe tobacco is a spicy blend of excellent fire-cured Kentucky and sweet and tangy, rich Virginia tobaccos. The influence of the Kentucky makes this a robust blend with a slightly smoky taste, with the underlying sweetness of the Virginias.  For a hearty but smooth, natural tobacco flavor, try No. 83 Amsterdam.

A Solid Experience
To my novice palette, this tobacco offers a bold earthy smoke with a good buzz on the bottom half of the bowl. This is my first experience with Dark-Fired Kentucky, so I'm excited to see how this will compare to similar blends.

Great price!
My husband is able to get the tobacco at a fraction of the cost and the delivery time is fast

Unusually nuanced and flavorful for its price bracket.
Amsterdam 83 has become my favorite daily pipe blend. I originally tried it for its affordability, and bought more after I realized I wasn't as interested in anything else I'd purchased and promptly smoked through it all. I don't pretend to be a sophisticated smoker, and I'm not one for verbose descriptions of favor, but I can say it has a wonderful and consistent natural tobacco taste, which I would call sweet (virginia sweet, not American aromatic sweet), and flavor which changes ever so slightly throughout the bowl, which keeps it interesting. Sometimes I swear I taste soft cinnamon. It doesn't bite me at all, and stays calm under my absent minded puffing. It isn't an amazing tobacco, but it outshines other blends I've tried at this price range, whose flavors tend to be muddy. This is one I recommend.

Good in the pipe.
I know this is a well known RYO but I really enjoy it in the pipe. It is quality tobacco that has a good amount of strength which is what I prefer and the price is right.

I have about 20 different pipe tobaccos in my cellar because I like variety. this isn't in the top 10 but enjoyable occasionaly.

Best left for blending
This tobacco smells great right out of the bag. On the initial light there is some sweetness apparent, but that fades quickly. The rest of the bowl burns too fast and hot for my taste. While the tobacco seems of good quality I think it may be best used to blend with a tobacco offering more flavor and a more even burn.

Blending base
Smoked alone it's like a 3-legged dog (something is obviously missing). Try it for tinkering with English blends or a pallette tune-up exercise. Screams for latakia and/or perique.

That best thing about Amsterdam to me is the aroma. I'll leave it at that. I've never tried to smoke it unblended, so I can't say much more about it.

Great RYO
Very satisfying smoke rolled by hand. Sweet Virginia with a touch of Dark fired Kentucky. A little light on the smokiness of the dark fired but very well balanced. Good for blending. I add some dark fired for smokiness or Golden Virginia for sweetness depending on my mood but excellent as is. The Stokkebye cigarette shag version is good but to homogeneous, I prefer the pipe cut for when you hit that concentration of Kentucky or sweet Virginia. Good quality and great price from a fantastic vendor.

Excellent service, excellent product.
I order Peter Stokkebye Amsterdam about once a month. It always arrives fresh and in a timely manner. I would recommend both this product and Pipes and Cigars to anyone looking for a high quality non-aromatic tobacco.

I smoke about an ounce a day of stuff and have for years. It smells like brandy and leather and wood and who knows what else. Most people tha hate the way cigarettes smell do not react as negatively to this upon entering a room in which I've smoked it. It is not a sharp, or acrid's very smooth. I don't know how it measures up when smoked from a pipe as far as burning or strength goes but when I'm around others who have never had a rolled smoke, even as regular or even heavy smokers they extinguish a rolled cigarette halfway through noting it being a little much. So I guess it could sneak up on you were you not used to it. It's a great smoke. It's the only tobacco I've found that I like, 100% of the time and I get so Ill when I plan poorly and run out before my shipment comes in and I have to smoke some other dry crusty tobacco. Also this company/website is whatever. Their customer service is top notch and their shipping is impeccable. I've never had it take longer than three business days to receive a package in all years I've patronized them. So the company is great and so is this product I but from them, pound by pound, every month.
Customer Testimonials
What this is and what it isn't. This is "not" your atypical "pipe" tobacco. Isn't designed to be. This is a European style cut and blend. It's meant primarily for rolling a smoke, smoking in a very small bowled meerschaum or clay, or for blending. Is it cigarette tobacco - technically no it isn't. It's a pipe cut and a pipe blend. It's not meant to be put in a filtered tube either, that would be "shag" cut. This is ribbon. But, it cut and designed to be rolled - ie old school. No filter, generally by hand. I do not know if they still do, but in the old days tobacco's we readily associate with pipes were packaged as "For pipes or cigarettes". Until cigarettes became the pariah of the world. I enjoy it very much rolled. It's full bodied and has a nice complex flavor. Cool burning and not bite. This is probably the fullest bodied of Stokkebye's "pipe" cuts. And in my opinion the best to blend, or cut other bends with. It's flavor neutral/natural so you can use in many different genre's of pipe blends. This reminds me very much in many ways to Semois, another non-atypical pipe tobacco. For the money you just cannot beat this quality. It's great on it's own, and it's great as a blender. If you have an aromatic blend that falls short in "tobacconess" which pretty much all aromatics do - then add 20-40% of this. Same is true to the English style latakia bombs. It smooths out the blend adds tobacco body to it. Unflavored tobacco. Just leaf here folks. Those that say these are "harsh" and "strong" have quite possibly smoked entirely too much flavorless Capt. Black/Blue/Red and so on. It's great stuff. Grab a few ounces and a pack of papers, or a small meerschaum, you'll enjoy it. Smoke slow or you'll be swimming in nicotine bliss. Takes a light nicely and burns evenly, cool and dry with little to no bite. Just smoke slow if you're particularly sensitive to nicotine, you'll probably want to pass on this blend.
Although i am usually a big fan of the Stokkebye blends I was slightly disappointed with this one . I felt it left a lot to be desired and was pretty bland and monotone with a flat uneventful smoke, think ill avoid this in the future and just stick with Stokkebye blends 17 English luxury or Stokkebye 52 proper English . No disappointments with those.
