Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bulls Eye Flake

A blend of ripe Virginia tobaccos spiced with pure Louisiana Perique. The center of Black Cavendish smooths out the taste. The outer blend is pressed into thin layers before being tightly spun around a stick of pressed Black Cavendish. The result is a massive ‘cigar’ which is cut into ‘medallions’ and packed. Lightly aromatic, medium strength. Most enjoyable on its own. Select 2 to 3 slices – rub gently by hand and fill the pipe lightly.

Please Note: If you wish to receive a sealed 24 oz. box, select the box option.

PS Bullseye Flake is a mild tobacco with a unque presentation, cavendish middle with virginia rings. My 1oz sample contained about 12-13 coins and most of them were still in tact upon delivery. The flavor of this tobacco is mild but the cavendish adds a touch of sweetness. There is a reason this tobacco is so popular, the price is MUCH cheaper than other "coin" cut blends on the market (some of which i suspect are this particular blend just re-branded). Pick up an OZ or 2 and see for yourself if this blend is for you!

Bulls' Eye
It's got a good natural taste. The "bulls eye' of black cavendish mellows it out, just a little bit. A pleasant smoke.

Sexy Looking Plain Taste
I was tempted to pour milk on these flakes and eat them as cereal. I think this blend may be appreciated by people who prefer Virginias on the rustic side. I could not pick up on the Cavendish trail during my smoke, as some have said the flavor pops in now and then. I am used to having some Latakia in my blends and I just could not see myself enjoying this or any other VaPer on a regular basis. Extraordinary quality nonetheless.

Great taste
For a strong smoke very mild

It's a good one.
Very good tobacco! It has a strong flavor that will give you a nice punch. Good nicotine boost as well. Burns perfect and long lasting.

Excellent blend.
Of hundreds tried, this one is just plain great!! May it NEVER go off the market as some do. If you like even Golden Slice, Sunset Breeze, Dark Strong, Wessex Burley Slice, Royal Jersey(purple), Old Shenandoah/Bootleg, even Milonga, Vintage Syrian, Fusilier's Ration, St. Bruno Flake, some Rattrays, St. James Woods, Dark Star, Dunbar, etc. you might like it. Just don't buy it out!! Dave C.

Best bulk VaPer
The best bulk VaPer I've had yet. It's basically a budget version of Escudo Navy Deluxe. Highly doubt most smokers could differentiate the two. Fairly light body but has a natural mellow sweetness and just a smidge of spice. burns near perfect. Will def buy more for when I want a lighter VaPer and use GL Pease Fillmore when in the mood for something more bold.

Peter Stokebye Bulls Eye Flake
Great smoke, great value. I have compared this to other "high end" flakes and found this tobacco to be superior in taste and aroma.
5 out of 5
My favorite tobacco of all times. Never a bite and a nice room odor.
5 out of 5
A staple blend
I can't sing the praises of this blend enough. It's nothing terribly special, it's just a solid and super tasty blend. Molasses sweetness with a bready grassiness of the Virginias accented by a peppery dark fruit note from the perique all mellowed by the unsweetened Cavendish core. Rub it out into ribbons or fold and stuff the flakes, each preparation brings out different flavor profiles from the blend. I'm hoping to buy a few pounds to cellar because this stuff is going to age beautifully. If you're interested in trying VaPers then buy this blend!
5 out of 5
It's Good
I keep it on stock. It's my current all day favorite. It's a solid VaPer and the Cavendish gives it a bit of flavor that is sweet but not intrusive.

Bulls eye
3rd time buying Bullseye. Excellent blend and smoke it everyday.
5 out of 5
Peter Stokkebye 403 Luxury Bulls Eye Flake is a great smoke! It has a "punch you in the mouth" flavor that will surprise you. Nice sweet and spicy, winter-woodstove smoke with a great nicotine punch! It burns cool and LONG. A little goes a long way. Definitely worth buying. I am not sure if I could smoke it all day. It's more of a treat.

The coins are smaller than I thought, but that doesn't matter grab another one! I really enjoyed smoking this quality tobacco. I used more of a smash and pack, rather than a fold and pack. I wanted to get the middle of the coin mixed in, but it was nice to have the change as the bowl burned.

Peter Stokkebeye 403 Luxury Bulls Eye Flake
I only smoked it one time, but I enjoyed every bit of it. I rubbed it out and put it in the bowl and it smoked very nice. May be the best non aromatic with perique that i've ever smoked. Thank you Pipes and cigars for your service..

Love it!
Smokes very even and fun to pack! Love the bullseye! Mildish with a touch of sweetness.
4 out of 5
No need to rave about the bulls eyes every body knows its a good blend but it gets tiresome after a while. I dont have that discerning palate that can tell the sweetness when i hit the cavendish! Other than that it is a good va per burns well mildly sweet and the room note is of typical hay virginia scent. It should age well and when bought in bulk its relatively affordable. Al janabi

Keep coming back to luxury
This and Luxury Twist Flake have made it into my regular rotation.

Loved the bullseye in these little coins. Moisture content just right and rub out nicely for easy packing. Wife didn't complain about room note. However, they smoked milder then I thought they would and the flavor was kind of light. Instead of being my stronger late night smoke they were mild enough to be an all day smoke. Not a criticism, just not what I expected. May try again.

Straightforward, Yet Elegant Tobacco for Those Who Enjoy the Unaltered Taste of Tobacco
It's important to note that this flake is best suited for those who love the taste of unadulterated tobaccos. It does not obscure the core taste beneath top notes. However, it is a refreshingly grassy and smoky VaPer enriched by the sweetness of the Cavendish. It manages to be simultaneously delicious yet unobtrusive. There are highly complex tobaccos that require one to sit and focus only on the smoke; then there are more straightforward tobaccos that one can enjoy while strolling or chatting. This is definitely the latter, yet it's lack of complexity does not equate to a lack of elegance. This is my go-to smoke for evenings with friends and family.

Good now, Great later
LBF is a great Tobacco. Beautiful to look at, tasty, and has enough nuance with the sweet bullseye of cavendish to make it interesting. I try and always have a few jars of this in my cellar, as its a good smoke, albeit a bit rough around the edges when fresh. A couple of years in the cellar make it truly sing!

Very Good Bulk Va/Per
Wow! I am really pleased and surprised at how good this bulk blend is! It’s really delicious. My favorite blends these days are Va/Pers and straight Virginias (although I like many burley blends, too). These bulleye coins present very well, and they are easy to load into the bowl. As with regular flake tobacco, these bullseye flakes can be prepped several ways for loading. Different methods do affect how the tobacco smokes and even how it tastes. I prefer a type of fold & stuff method where I roll up the coin into a semi-loose ball then stuff the ball into the bowl. Keep in mind that these coins each have a core of black cavendish, which provides a sweet touch to the smoke. If you fully rub out the coins, or chop them up, the cavendish will be more evenly distributed throughout the bowl and the sweet flavor it imparts will also be more even. If you use a fold & stuff method, as I do, the sweetness from the cavendish will sort of “pop” in the mix from time to time, unexpectedly, as the bits of cavendish are encountered irregularly. I like these sweet surprises! No matter how I prepared this blend, it lit easily, had a consistent burn with few re-lights, and smoked pretty well no matter what pipe I used. However, it smoked best in my Rattray’s “Judge” poker. It has a deep, narrow bowl, which seems well-suited for flakes. The longest continuous smoke I think I’ve ever had in nearly 40 years of pipe smoking was with this blend in my large “tulip” meerschaum by H. Ege. This is my largest pipe with a very deep, relatively narrow bowl. The bowl is at least 2 inches deep, if not a bit more. I used a little over 4 coins, packed fairly firmly. The smoke lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes! I timed it. And this blend seemed to get better and better as the bowl progressed. At the price, you can't go wrong! Highly recommended.

Fast shipment and well packed!

Tasty and in Bulk
I really enjoy the 403. Mr. Stokkebye has made a nice one here. All though some would say its not a true VAper its a good smoke with a hint of sweetness thanks to the Virginia's and Cavendish mix, plus its available in bulk which is always a plus in my book.

Nice -- similar to Orlik Golden Slice
Very similar to Orlik Golden Slice, my favorite, with a just a minute touch of Cavendish. I can't get OGS in bulk. But, this will do perfectly. (Note that I did order two separate quantities of the LBEF. The moisture content and color were considerably different. However, taste was consistent. Just let it breathe for a couple of hours or so and you're all set.)

Bullseye indeed
This is such a simple yet amazing tobacco. There is no way to properly communicate how well it puts checks in so many boxes. Want virginias you can taste? Check. Want some plummy Perique that says hello from the first puff? Check? Want an aromatic that complements the tobacco without overwhelming? Check. I am glad I waited a while to order. Any sooner and my palate may not have enjoyed this coin as much. This is an awesome mixture, and the price makes it even more attractive. I want to cellar some but I don't know if it will be around long enough for that to happen. Oh - and wait for the second half of the bowl!
5 out of 5
Don't over think it
It's so simple. Perfectly portioned coins with perfect Virginia flavor. It doesn't get bitter; the Cavendish dot takes care of that. I devoted an old restored Medico "Frank" to just this flake- perfect sized chamber for just one coin. I puff on this all day when I go camping. Don't over think this blend and you'll love it! The price is incredible, and the bullseye cut flake is the coolest presentation in pipe tobacco
4 out of 5
Nice Flake
Love the look of these coins. They're pretty tasty, too. I like the mix of the different tobaccos, gives a mildly sweet and kind of spicy smoke. I'm putting them up agains some Davidoff Flake Medallions. They're similar, yet different.

Good Substitute for OGS
Good substitute for Orlike Golden Sliced. IMO it's sweeter than OGS, with a sweet, grassy taste

Needs aging but good blend
Bullseye flake, which come in coins are nice. That touch of cavendish added to VaPer is nice, but jar it up and wait a few months at least. I had a buddy send me some that had sat for a year. Vastly improved.
5 out of 5
Love it!
Bulls eye is truly appropriate for this blend. Not just for the center nugget of Cavendish, but mostly cause this tobacco hits the spot! It's a great VaPer, sweet and spicy together with the earthy hay-like Virginia. It doesn't bite and could be an all-day smoke. I wouldn't do it cause I would be afraid to get tired of it. I smoke it at least once or twice a week. Highly recommend and P&C delivery was prompt and accurate!

Great candidate for a cellar tobacco. If you're a new pipe smoker, try this!
WOW! I've tried a few different flake and coin cuts now and this one was my favorite after just one helping. Did a basic rub in my palm with 1 coin and stuffed it in to my Wessex for a taste. Meaty, sweet, spicy. Sweet grass hay profile through all of it. Good, consistent, pleasing smoke. Unable to attest to room note...I smoke outside. Will be trying it in my Cobbit tonight to see if it's different. I am ordering more of this and this will definitely be one that I stock away a few jars of in the cellar, right next to Scotty's Stonewall and some Old Dark Fired. Also, as a relatively new pipe smoker (about a year now), this has some really easily identified characteristics. So, I'd recommend it for new pipers based on that'll help you learn how to discern what's in your tobacco.

Delightful kick!
Listening to the fireplace roar and enjoying and deliciois bowl this. What a truly smooth burn with just the right amount of spice. I will be buying much more of this to cellar.

Great value, great taste
I really enjoy smoking vaper blends. Escudo and Orlick golden flake are usually my go to blends. I'd read glowing reviews on Bullseye Flake and finally decided to give it a try and I must admit, this stuff is really good. I fold up two or three coins roll them up into a tight ball and stuff them in. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy and quite delicious. I usually get about an hour of enjoyment from a bowl full. Great value, great taste, if you try it, I'm sure you will not be disappointed. It's my all day smoke now.

Luxury Bulls Eye Flake Is Right On Target
I'm not sure but I believe Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bulls Eye Flake is the top seller in the whole line-up of Stokkebye tobacco blends. I actually rank this tobacco with Orlik Golden Sliced and would venture to say that if you do like Orlik you would really appreciate Bulls Eye Flake too. Consistently this tobacco in bulk often rides the top ten chart of best bulk tobacco sales. Now that I've ranked Bulls Eye Flake among the best all-time tobaccos, I should point out that P&C would know a lot more than I do about each one of the blends by Stokkebye but the sales would say the most.

Great Va/Per for Your Rotation
If you're into Va/Pers, this is one to try. It has the great flavor of your Virginas along with smoky, pepper of the Perique. The cavendish center is a nice touch that adds some more flair to the taste as you smoke it. I've rubbed the medallions out, but to be honest, I think folding up a couple for your bowl provides a better taste. I'm rating it 4 Stars simply because Dunhill Dark Flake is my all time favorite Va/Per. I will definitely be buying more to go into my rotation.

Surprising Hit
What a great value. I guess Im just a cro-mag because I just stuff the bullseyes in the pipe with no drying or rubbing. Slow burning and medium flavor. The balance of the hint of cavendish and the peppery perique is perfect to me and the price is so good. Gonna cellar a few ounces for a couple years I imagine the flavors will blossom. Will buy again
5 out of 5
It might not score 10X but it's close. Great blend, the perique is just right and every now and then you get a pocket of sweetness from that cavendish X-ring. Don't rub this stuff. It gets awfully harsh if it becomes too loose. Pack it different ways to find what suites you and your bowl. Good things take time and practice, just ask any bullseye shooter.
4 out of 5
This one is on the mark
Great flavour. First time using bullseyes and I will definitely be getting some more. One thing, it seems closer to full strength rather than medium. Definitely woke me up a bit. All in all, I'm very pleased.

Reminds me of Dark Fired Kentucky and is a very pleasing smoke. This is a very high quality product. Will be ordering more.

Very good bullseye, but used to be better
I’ve tried smoking this particular tobacco for years and every time I get a new batch, it tastes different. This one somehow lacked the flavor of previous editions. Still like it, though.

Good VaPer
Enjoy this flake very much. You have to be especially careful with this one not to freight train it or you'll roast your tongue and lose the wonderful flavors. Sweet cavendish pops out in a great vibrant grassy sweet Virginia flake. Very subtle perique but comes out more on the second half of the bowl. Smoke it in a thick walled pot or something and you're going to enjoy it much more.

Best value of bulk tobaccos.
But their English Oriental Supreme is pretty wonderful, too. LBF on chilly mornings, EOS on warmer days.

Like an old friend, Bulls Eye Flake brings enjoyment to the pipe smoker, a morning treat, afternoon delight and a nightcap before bed to bring sweet dreams.

Close to...
Escudo, but not quite the same enchilada. Easy to prepare, pack and smoke. Luxury Bulls Eye is a mellow, and less expensive alternative to its more well known cousin. This has entered my regular rotation. Good stuff. Give it a try.

A great every day Va/Per.
My every day Va/Per. The dot of Cavendish adds just a hit of sweetness that will come across the palate from time to time. Perique is definitely evident especially on the retrohale. And it's inexpensive enough to buy plenty and jar up for the cellar.

A staple that's always good all day long and at a nice price

This is a nice semi-sweet, spicy tobacco. I prefer to smoke This in cooler weather..The perique makes me sweat.

Fantastic tobacco a great deal
Fantastic tobacco a great deal for your money. The Virginia's are a smooth smoke with a little bite almost none. There is enough interest to keep the demand for this going g for awhile.

Excellent Flake!!!
This is one of my favorites. The "coins" are fun to look at and fun to prepare. I like to fold and stuff two of these into a good cob, because it hides the sweet, creamy cavendish bullseye somewhere in your bowl for a delicious surprise. Your just smoking along, enjoying a great Virginia/Perique blend and all of a sudden, your ember hits the cavendish and you're blasted with a sweet, creamy treat right in your face hole. Makes for a very interesting smoke. I choose a cob to be on the safe side, because for some reason, this baccy tends to burn a little hot and I don't want to burn out a good briar. Take it nice and slow and enjoy you're smoke and this shouldn't really be a problem. If you haven't tried these little puppies, do it now!
5 out of 5
It takes more effort to load a bowl as it needs to be rolled but, if done properly, it will repay you with a wonderful smoke. It has been my daily main for about 2 years. Take the time to pack it properly, light it twice and don't puff it and it will bring lots of enjoyment.
3 out of 5
Great idea, but...
I really like this idea of this tobacco, and have about six ounces in my stash. I like the way it looks, smells, feels. But try as I have, I just don't really enjoy smoking it. It's too light for my age jaded taste. Airy with no mouth feel, no substance upon which to hang one's thoughts while smoking it. I may try mixing some burley with this to give it the heft it lacks.
4 out of 5
Put It In Your Pipe and Smoke It!
This is a great all day smoke at a very attractive price. Like most PS blends their Virginias are a little young which is why I bought enough to smoke and cellar. I was a little leery of the Cavendish in the center, but it ended up being what makes this blend shine. Tin note was like sitting on the porch with the smell of freshly threshed hay while sipping some hot cocoa. Smoked right out of the bag in a corncob pipe it was cool and satisfying, but a little wet for smoking in a briar. The smoke itself was very hay like with a hint of that perique spiciness. It should even out and become perfect after jarring it for a few months if I can keep my hands out of it. Haha.

so far so good.
So far so good. I'm getting used to breaking up the flake well enough to smoke well...

Solid all day for rotation
I have consistently enjoyed this smoke. Try folding vs. rubbing. I like to take the Cavendish and sprinkle it on top as a condiment. A solid tobacco that I would consider buying by the box.

Super good smoke works out to be a good celebratory smoke or a good every day smoke depends on what you like but in my opinion you can't go wrong having a few ounces on hand.

Good Va-Per and Bargain Prices
My regular Vaper is Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls (yeah, I know, expensive tastes). Recently I decided to try the Peter Stokkebye Luxury flakes because the reviews were good and the price can’t be beat. At first I didn’t know what to think about that big noodle of cavendish in the middle of the coin, but I was pleasantly surprised. For those who don’t know, LBF is a Virginia - Perique blend with a bull’s eye of unflavored black cavendish. It is cut into thin coins and sold in bulk for crazy low prices. The jar aroma is citrusy, earthy, figgy, and raisiny. There is no flavoring detected. It takes two matches to get this one going full steam, and once fired up, gives you a high quality VaPer smoke with citrusy, sweetish earthiness coming from the Virginias, raisins, figs, and spice coming from the Perique, and a subtle mellowness coming from the cavendish bull’s eye. This is no slouch bargain blend, but a very good quality tobacco that’ll make you sit up and exclaim, “Blucher!” And as the horses quiet down, you’ll sit back and enjoy a very well balanced smoke. One caution: don’t smoke this stuff like Daffy Duck. Go easy on it and it will go easy on you. If you pull its tail, it could bite. I give this 4 stars only because I save the 5th for Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls (what good is money if you can’t waste a bit of it sometimes).

Great for the Cellar
Excellent VaPer and always in my rotation. Great for the cellar and betters itself with age. The Cavendish center adds that sweet treat that other VaPer's just don't have and sets it apart. A great smoke any time of the day. Add it to your list you will not be disappointed.

High quality in a compact coin. Everywhere i have purchased this flake. The quality is standfast same with no changes at all. You know what your getting and my only gripe is i wish there was a better way to package this coin. Shipping is not always so kind to it and in general my paclages have averaged around 20% has broken up. I fold and rub this one out depending on humidity its always reliable.

A Most Preferred Pipe Smokers Tobacco
I really can't speak with seasoned experiences on the subjective aspects of this tobacco because I am still new to the pipe. But for me (and I inhale) this best selling tobacco earned its place as one of the best tasting blends in the world. Another great thing is that it is not really an expensive tobacco as one might expect, while it delivers so much satisfaction. I give a big Thumb's Up to Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bulls Eye Flake.

Excellent VaPer for beginners.
An excellent tobacco with a surprising amount of depth. It is an excellent tobacco for learning different preparation methods. There is a noticeable difference between a coin that has been rubbed out, and one that has been folde 'n stuffed
4 out of 5
very tasty
A fine VaPer blend. The Cavendish is a nice bit of sweetness to the Perique spice. Ultimately I prefer a straight Virginia - Perique mix but I will never refuse a briar full of this blend.
5 out of 5
This stuff is awesome. This was my first introduction to both flakes and VaPers. I am fairly new to the hobby and started with aromatics etc. and this was a great change. Certainly my favorite thing yet. When you crumple up a flake don't look at it when you pack it, then you'll be suprised by the cavendish "pop" which is really fun.
5 out of 5
Fantastic smoke, just received my order, delivered in two days thanks P&C, smokes cool, no bite if not pushed, and delivers wonderful aroma in pouch and room note. What else is there to say, a new favorite, cannot wait to get back from camping trip with boy scouts to try LNF & LTF. Thank you again,P&C. You folks really deliver.

This is a permanent fixture in my cellar
This is a truly captivating blend that can be smoked in a variety of ways. I love to fold a couple of coins and maybe balance out the top of the bowl with a bit of broken flake. This blend is sure to please anyone who enjoys a navy style flake. It is well balanced and rich with nuttyness and flavor with a hint of spice from the Perique. A great evening or after a meal blend sure to satisfy.

Great Tobacco
Beautiful pipe tobacco! love the way it comes in discs, for the number of varieties for preparation. Its a sweet lush tobacco with a touch of spiciness from the perique and i love the touch of cav in the middle. Its my go to smoke something I look forward to every morning with a cup of coffee. If you haven't had this one through a couple (or more) ounces in the cart you won't regret it!

very good right out of the bag, it is GREAT after a little cellar time, but do not take my word try it your self.

Learning to love Virginia's
coming from the cigar world I tended toward English, Balkan, Latakia flake, and dark fired tobaccos. I tried smoking a pipe years back and VA's seemed to give me a bit of bite. After smoking a pipe six months I bought this as well as Luxury Bullseye and am developing an affinity for the sweet natural flavor of VA.

Great smoke at a good price
Good quality Virginia-Perique blend with a tasty Cavendish nougat at the core. Preparation ensures it stays moist. Recommended all-day smoke.

Customer Testimonials
One of the all time best flakes. Folks like to compare this to other VA/Per coin flakes, which I myself have done, and I think that's incorrect. Yes, it looks and feels just like Escudo - but it's not Escudo. Same shape and process, but different ingredients. The Perique in PS is not as "peppery" as what Escudo uses. I'd say that the Luxury Navy flake is closer in flavor to Escudo than Bullseye. PS uses a pretty simple perique - I buy their perique in bulk as well for home blending. It's a nice leaf, but not really bold or complex (See C&D bulk perique for that) The Cavendish in this blend really odds a lot of body to it. It's a very small amount - but enough to give you nice billows of smoke. Burns cool and evenly. No bite. Slightly sweet, but in a savory sense, not a cloying sense. The character of the smoke can alter on how you prepare it. Rubbed out - it's less complex, more "malty" and burns a bit quicker. Folded, my preferred method for this coin, it's deeper and more complex - it also allows the Cavendish to do it's part more fully. Two coins is about perfect for a group 2-3, three coins for group 4-5. Pipe shapes also can alter this smoke. I prefer mine in tall(ish) group 3-4 billiards. I like to densely pack it and smoke it slow. That, at least for more allows the body to really come out. You'll definitely know when you hit the Cavendish, it's a nice surprise waiting in there for you. No bite, no burn. Folded will leave you with a small dottle topped with silverly / white ash. Rubbed out will go all the way to the heel. You can push this pretty hard without over-heating. The quality here is without doubt. I buy it buy the pounds and use pint mason jars. Good right away - and only gets better with age. Anyone that asks me my recommendation for a "Flake" - this is always my first recommendation. Complex and bold enough for a seasoned smoker that knows what to look for, but it won't scare away or overwhelm a first time flaker.

In my mind it's as good as Escudo, a personal fav, and available in bulk year around. What more could I ask for? Brilliant tobacco!

This tobacco is a pleasure to smoke in any of my pipes, especially, a meerschaum claw my wife bought for my birthday. However, it burns nice and tastes as adveritised, slow and easy does it for me, enjoy the sweetness of the virginia, and bits of perique with the dark spot of cavandish. I've been a pipe smoker for a year now and this is one of my favorites. I've tried other types but I feel each tobacco has it's own merits and requires some bit of restraint when comparing. On that note, I enjoy this tobacco and savor the moment of folding it and slowly smoking it in the morning or late afternoon in any of my pipes but especially the meerschaum. I cellared a couple of oz's for grins and giggles and will probably end up smoking it because it is such a good smoke and tobacco.

My number one smoke! I find them rubbed out by cutting into quarters and dried gives me a really smooth and flavorful smoke I can mindlessly puff with no chance of a bite. Puff too hard though and the nicotine will get you as it's strong stuff. I daily to through an ounce and order 3lbs at time. I thing it would be great aged but I love it so much I would have to order 10lbs at a time to ever see that happen! Good stuff, you can't lose with it.

At first I really didn't care for this blend.. but try after a few times I found that this was an excellent blend and stronger than my daily smokes. It has a very complex taste that can be subtle but worth every puff if you savor it. Very happy with it now and will be ordering more in the future.

One of the very best pipe tobaccos that I have tried; it has now become my all-time favorite. This flake is not to be rushed but it's made to sit back, relax and savored. I don't know if it's the nicotine or what but it does have a delightful, robustious kick.
RB of Kannapolis, NC
What a wonderful blend! This tasty smoke is becoming my go to blend. I will never be without this.
HR of Alto, MI
This is one of my favorite blends...and for the price, wow, you can't beat it! Sweet Virginias, nice amount of perique, with a sweet bullseye center that makes for a cool smoke. If you are a Va/per lover, you owe it to yourself to try this won't be sorry. My next order, I'm loading up and throwing it in my cellar for aging.
LB of Monroe, NC
I have cellared three pounds of this fine blend but it had been over a year since I last smoked it. I had the original 4oz bulk that I bought in 2012 and since it was a small bulk purchase the flakes were fairly knocked apart (buy a box if you want them in their pristine bulls eye shape) so I rubbed out the whole lot and jarred it. I smoked a bowl as I was putting it into the jar and I've been back into that jar several times over the last two weeks. Like Stokkebye's other flakes this is a classy tobacco and you can't beat the price anywhere. The smoke is flavorful Virginia and the little chunks of Cavendish flare up every once in a while adding a treat to an already fine smoke. I highly recommend LBF and if you can afford it, buy a box!

Where to start? I am new to pipe smoking, having done so for about six months. I wasn't sure I would like this, since I purchased another Va/per at my local B&M, Dunhill Elizabethan. I found that to be really cigaretty in flavor and aroma, which is something I am not interested in regarding the pipe. So, I thought I just didn't like the whole va per genre. I was seriously mistaken. This stuff is gold. I had fruity aroma on light up, to a warm brown sugar taste when I hit the cavendish, back to a slight peppery warmth and all along there was the sweetness of the Virginia. I mean, I really liked this blend. Now I understand how some reviewers wax poetic when describing their favorite tobaccos. Factor in the price at 2.50 an ounce, and you wind up with an unbelievable value and experience for the pipe. Will reorder before my 2 ounce trial is gone for sure.

This is great stuff. Alone, or with a pinch or two of something smokey like Latakia. Can't believe it's this easy on the wallet.
JW of Wurtland, KY
One of the best tobaccos I had I a long time has that lovely Vergina Flavor and that oh so sweet black cavendish make a this one of my top 20 Favorite tobaccos.
KJ of Aiea, HI
Nice blend, rich tobacco taste, slightly woody with an occasional sweet nutty note. Great if you want a no nonsense smoke.
TZ of Plainfield, IL
Very full and complex. Heavy nose and the variant within the bowl was delightful. Barely rubbed two coins into one bowl. Burned cooler than I would have expected. Highly recommended.
KL of Steubenville, OH
this is a good roll flake tobacco, This thing is pure tobacco goodness. love the black cavendish hmmm smooths out the taste.
KK of Chicago, IL
This is one delicious tobacco! I would not characterize it as overly strong, though it does have a little kick. The best way I can describe it is sweet and spicey. It has the bold spicey flavor you long for but with a nice sweetness that could make it an all day smoke for me!
ND of Boiling Springs, SC
Really nice tobac. Grassy and smooth. i like to pop out center and rub out rest, then i hide the cavs, in different spots while i pack bowl. Give a nice sweet little pop as the centers fire up.
AG of Delray Beach, FL
Smoking a bowl now as I write in my Stanwell Speciality freehand. The aroma is an earthy sweet smelling hay note. The coins are easy to pack, I simply fold two over and stuff lightly. You want it moderately loose, add the loose pieces as firestarters. Once you get it going, it's easy to keep lit. It's a heavy bodied smoke that taste like a peppered steak. The retro-hale is very spicy, I almost can't do it. This is a great tasting smoke. Will definately be a dedicated English/Non-Aro
Holy heck, wish I found this earlier. Classic hay-like Virginia with a little bit of sweet from the cavendish center. The bulk came a little moist but smoked great out of the bag. Like any flake, pack it on the loose side it the narrowest bowl you have and get ready for a real treat. And did I mention the price?? This stuff is a real value and a real treat.
CJ of Wichita, KS
I like! A bit more well-rounded than Escudo or Dunhill Navy Rolls (I'm guessing due to the inclusion of Burley and Cavendish), and every bit as enjoyable! Much easier on the wallet, too! Seriously, you can get 7 oz. of this stuff versus one 1.76 oz. tin of Dunhill, so it's definitely worth a try if you're into Va/Per blends and similar blends.
JG of Cantonment, FL
This is one to savor slowly not only to get the best taste experience of the natural tobaccos but it also packs quite a nicotine hit. Luxury Bulls Eye Flake smokes very dry and burns beautify with a slight background sweetness and just the right amount of spiciness from the Perique. Good stuff at a great price.
A very nice VaPer if smoked slow. I rub them out, because I find it nearly impossible to just stuff and go. And, I always look forward to the fire reaching the little black Cavendish center section, as it gives a sweet kick to the smoke. This a staple in my rotation and my cellar.
MJ of Helena, AL
This is a very full bodied and strong smoke. This thing is pure tobacco goodness! Try something else if you want something lighter.
KW of San Jose, CA
great Va/per tobacco. Has a nice little kick and the black Cavendish smoothes it all out
