Peter Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake

Peter Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake is a modern classic. Layers of choice Virginias, selected for their natural sweetness are combined with a moderate amount of Perique and pressed into blocks and then sliced. A touch of rum is added to complete the "navy flake" profile - smooth, lightly sweet and very satisfying.

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

The Best Bulk Va-Per Flake on Earth
Let me start by saying that I've been a fan of Va-Pers for many years. Escudo has been my go-to for 10+ years, but when you smoke every day, that's a costly option. Stokkebye's Luxury Navy Flake is absolutely the BEST bulk Va-Per flake on the market, hands down. The flavor takes a moment to get going, but once you get to your first tamp, it hits you, and you'll want to buy pounds and pounds. Very good Virginias and Perique, and I've seen some reviews state that the "flavorings" are too much for them. I can't stand aromatics. Hate 'em. This is not even close to an aro blend, folks. My palate detects 0 flavorings whatsoever. Just a solid, mild-to-medium bodied flavor, with a nice aroma (especially the "rim note", meaning the wafting smoke that's leaving the top of the bowl as you smoke it), and it burns down to a nice, mottled grey ash. If you enjoy good Virginias and Perique - there is simply no better option at this price point...and I cellar pounds of this stuff just in case any legalities/leaf shortages arise. All day, every day smoke. Delicious!

never grows old
I have gravitated or prob graduated to This flake which I understand is a va-per. I love how slow it burns but it can bite you if you forget what your smoking. Al day keeper

A good flake
One of my regular rotation. The closest I come to smoking sn aromatic. By no means an unnoticeable flavor, best suited to the fold and stuff method with slow sipping. Rubbing this out will produce an overbearing flavor to my taste. Comparable to Orlik Golden Flake with different flavorings.

Very Good Bulk Va/Per
I’ve been smoking Peter Stokkebye’s Luxury Bullseye Flake pretty much side-by-side with this Stokkebye’s Luxury Navy Flake. The Navy flake is very similar to the Bullseye flake, as they are both Va/Pers. The main differences are that the Bullseye flakes have black cavendish, and they are cut into coins. The Navy flakes, as with the Bullseye flakes, have excellent burn characteristics, a great deal of flavor and balance between the Virginias and the Perique, and provide long smokes in the right pipe. The Navy flakes smoked well for me in a variety of pipes, but were best in my Rattray’s “Judge” poker and my “tulip” meerschaum carved by H. Ege. These pipes both have deep and relatively narrow chambers, which work very well with flake tobaccos. I use the “fold & stuff” method to load my pipe with this blend, but it smokes and tastes great prepared in other ways, too. Try stuffing, rubbing out the flakes, or even chopping them up, and see which way works best for you. This is a very good blend at a very good price. I guess all that is left for me to do is try Stokkebye’s Luxury Twist next! Highly recommended!

A Good Quality Smoke but...
A decent quality tobacco. Smokes well burning down to a fine ash. Rubs up well. But, too heavy on the flavorings for me. Also contains perique which I was unaware of when I purchased. Perique causes me to have headaches and nightmares. This may be congenital condition. I remember my father (a life long pipe smoker too) having the same reaction to tobaccos with perique. I am still looking for a replacement for my first love - Troost Special Flake in the tin.

Peter Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake
A great tobacco. A very mellow VaPer in which the Perique is not overpowering like in too many other blends. The moisture level is just right. It’s easy to rub out and there are no packing, lighting or burning problems. The smoke is cool and dry. This tobacco won’t bite. It burns down nicely right to the bottom of the bowl. It has the right amount of nicotine that I personally desire. Finally, the 24 ounce box deal from P&C is a great value for such an excellent tobacco. It has become my all-day smoke.

PS Luxury Navy Flake!
Found this back in the early 80s. Still luv it. Grassy, some fruit notes, a little hay as they say. Smooth smoke.
5 out of 5
Hay, Hay, Hay
Somewhat a grassy taste, but, mostly hay...If you've ever baled/worked in hay, then, you know exactly what to expect here...For those of you that haven't, think dry & musty and you've got it

Stokkebye did it right with this one...
I first bought this flake because of value. After more then a few pounds of it however, its gone on to find a permanent place in my stash as well as my heart. Smokes perfectly with a bit of air time and the old fold and stuff technique in a nice tall narrow bored pipe. Smoke it slowly to really make the dark sweetness come out, or speed it up abit to get the perique singing. Will always love this blend.

New to flakes
Even though I've smoked a pipe for 55 years I can't recall smoking a flake tobacco before. It was a pleasurable smoke so much so that I ordered 2 more in my last order. For those who like to taste the tobacco this is the one, a slight hint of rum can be detected, room note for me was good and just the right amount of nicotine.

PS Navy Flake
I haven't smoked this particular batch. I bought it to age for a year or more but have smoked a lot of it in the past. I've never had a reason to try a better VaPer. It has a good aroma, good balance of Virginia Vs Perique (for my taste), burns good with no bite once you learn how to load and pack it. The price is hard to beat.

What a difference a day makes.
Bought a few ounces about 6-8months ago, but it didn't really appeal to me so I jarred it and put it away. Recently opened it up and tried it again. Wow, this stuff is really smooth. No bite and a sweet taste that lasts thru the whole bowl. IMHO, just the right amount of Perique. No I buy it by the pound.

I really enjoyed this PS
I really enjoyed this PS 400 LNF.It has become part of my daily rotation.Having tried other navy blends, I was rather surprised by the lack of bite. I enjoy in a large billiard, several times a day.

New Everyday Smoke
This is going to be my daily smoke I believe. It has everything I love, and nothing I hate. My palate is not refined enough to tell you what I taste, but as a VAPer fan, I would advise try it. It calls to my Marine Heritage I guess lol.

Excellent Navy Flake
I like a good esoteric English, and a fine Navy flake, and I don't refuse a gimme. This is a complex, enjoyable baccy, that I look forward to. It's always interesting,and easy to get lost in. I would be satisfied to find an airtight barrel of it on that deserted island, after the fact.

Not my “cup of tea.”
I have had some good experiences with Navy type tobacco, but this one is nowhere near what I had in mind. Mind you, I’m a beginner so I naturally prefer more aromatic flavors. I’d say get an ounce and give it a try first.

Interchangeable
For those who are fans of Virginia flake cut pipe tobacco, you couldn't possibly go wrong with either of these two blends. There's only a slight difference in the aroma out of the pouch, with the Luxury Navy Flake being a bit sweeter. So get 'em both. If one's out of stock, order the other with no qualms.

Amazing
Ordered 1 oz of this to try and absolutely love it. It is great for a morning pipe. I will have to order more as I don't think this stuff will last me long.

Great value for a great smoke
I've bought this a few times and haven't been disappointed. Nice cool smoke with a mild but robust flavor. Plus, the smoke keeps the CIA from reading my thoughts.

The best navy flake
I like this navy flake over others I've tried. Good all day smoke.

Good but Even Better With Age
Good smoke but does even better with some age. The flavors and tone will deepen nicely.

Stokkebye Luxury Navy flake is quite mild - I could use a bit more flavor. A good smoke, though.

A very delightful smoke.
My very first try at a flake tobacco, I found that I just love this. Being primarily an aromatic smoker this one has become my favorite counterpoint. Mine arrived with near ideal moisture content and is very attractive to look at and show other people. Half the fun and appeal is in preparing this tobacco, and I by far find the best flavor by tearing it into 1-centimeter lengths and rubbing it out thoroughly. It expands and swells like mad upon first light, followed by wonderful and differing sweetnesses that flow and ebb if I sip it just right. For me the amount of perique is perfect, and the amount of smoke is impressive, rich, thick. This tobacco is an interactive experience, and to say it again, just delightful.

Great from start to finish.
Not bad. Not my first choice but a good bulk for sure. Going to try and age it and see if it improves.

press flake
while burning a little hotter than I like, This slow burning, easy to pack flake is the right one for me. It;s on the spicy side but still has the Virginia side that keeps it familiar in the European flavors.

A Gem Hidden in Plain Sight
Peter Stokkebye’s Luxury Navy Flake (LNF) is a Virginia / Perique mixture in flake form. The tobacco is high quality, the topping is subtle and unobtrusive, and the balance of the VA to the Perique is gentle. It’s not a perique bomb. The incredibly low price also makes this lovely blend worth trying. Some say that LNF gets bitey, but if you take it easy you shouldn’t have a problem. Some use the fold and stuff method with it, but I rub it out and smoke it slow as I find that this works best for me. So, if you like VaPers, give this a try. It won’t blast your nose with spice, and will reward a patient smoker with an easygoing quality pipe session.
5 out of 5
A satisfying smoke
What can I say about this Flake that hasn't been already said. I enjoy this quite a bit. It doesn't matter which way I prepare it it is always a good enjoyable smoke. If I had to have only 1 vaper this would be it.

Keep it in stock.
Light and clean, this is my all day go to smoke.

A bargain for a high quality Flake
A wonderful bargain for Flake lovers new and experienced. A rich, medium strength Flake that is sure to please fresh from delivery or aged. I just cannot get enough of smoking this as my everyday, go to tobacco.

Very good va-per.
Tried this out of curiosity after reading the reviews. Despite what I read, it has quite a lot of "vitamin N." Personally, I have to be careful about how often and when I smoke it. Having said that, it has a nice, pleasant, not to sweet taste.I don't detect the advertised rum but my palette may not be that sophisticated. The bottom line is that I enjoy it as an occasional break between my Balkans and English. The price, and the fact that you can buy in bulk is also attractive to me.

A bargain for a wonderful Navy Flake.
By far, this is one of the better Flake tobacco for the price that I have ever tried. No bite, consistent burn even without drying, and a rich and complex flavor combination make for a wonderful experience. I will buy this again, what a bargain!

Great tobacco very affordable
While on a kick of reading nautical stories, I decided to sample a bunch of navy flakes (I only sampled those available in bulk). Did this stand head and shoulders above the rest? No, but it was at least as good as any navy flake I tried, some much more expensive. Nice light everyday smoke, great price

A must for the cellar
Interesting flavors and easy smoking make this a fine afternoon tobacco.The flakes can be a bit tricky trying to fold and stuff, so I will just keep rubbing them out first. Wife says the room note remind her of toasted marshmellos, so I'm safe there,LoL

can't beat it.
This is the tobacco that opened my eyes to how pleasurable pipe smoking can really be. Ever since I've been hooked on it. I would recommend to any smoker especially beginners that only have a couple buck in there pocket.

The simple things in life.
The simple things in life, a very pleasant smoke, a hot cup of Folgers coffee, and the companionship of my loving dog.No better way to spend a holiday. This tobacco definitely provides the pleasant smoke. Thanks P&C for the great service during the holiday rush. To all, I wish a great smoke and good night.

Very pleasant smoke
I was given this tobacco by a friend. At the time, I was not fond of flake. It sat in a plastic bag for months before I tried it. I am now sorry I waited so long. It is delightful. I have learned to roll and fold as a result. It is slightly sweet and has a nice room note. It takes a little effort to get it going, but patience is rewarded. Very pleasant and relaxing. I could smoke this all day w/o getting tired of it. Absolutely no bite whatsoever. I can"t say enough good things about this one. I will buy more and I recommend it.

Orlik clone???
If you like Orlik golden sliced then this is for you! This stuff has that wonderful Virginia/apricot taste with a fabulous perique/pepper exhale. I love Orlik with all my heart but Im gonna start buying this instead. Being able to buy in bulk is just to good of a deal to pass up. Side by side comparison I swear I cant tell the difference.

fine but not great
It is a fine smoke but I don't find it to be earth shaking. A nice everyday blend. A good start to the day before moving on to bigger and better blends.

PS Lux Navy Flake,,, a Staple in any Cellar
My wife loves it when I light up a bowl of PS Lux Navy Flake, She picks up an aroma of toasted mashmellos. I get to smoke a really good tobacco without having to go outside. This blend is easy to light and the flavors stay all the way to the fine ash at the bottom.

Peter Stokkebye - Luxury Navy Flake
Nice, inexpensive flake. Very good VaPer. I would prefer a little additional Perique, but that's me.
4 out of 5
Not Bad for Bulk
Smoked out of a dedicated handmade briar, meerschaum and cob. Overall a good introductory tobacco for those interested in trying a VaPer style blend. The perique isn't too heavy so you won't have to worry about too much nicotene, the virginias are pretty young in the sense that they have a very hay like taste too them, but don't bite much if you pace yourself. I'd say with some aging this would be a pretty excellent tobacco. You don't really taste the rum until you get to the bottom 8th of the bowl then it takes on a butterd rum sauce note which leaves you longing for more. To me its a great all day smoke since I can't afford to puff Escudo all the time (much to my chagrin). The price alone is worth the plunge.

You like great values and even greater baccy?
Ok I'm a English smoker 1st off, however a buddy kept raving about this flake. I've had PS bullseye before and wasn't taken back by any means. But I received a sample of this flake and thought why not give it a shot. The flake itself is gorgeous in appearance, Browns and gold veins. Great light sweet aroma. Right out of the pouch I filled my trusty cob. I did rub it out prior. Well, the flake burned excellent. Nuances of pure tobacco and light sweet flavor on the retrohale. Burned clean and pure to a white ash. This blend is by no means the holy grail but it is a solid smoke. I smoked it all summer because it is so consistent. A good medium bodied smoke everytime. You know what you get with this one. Now let me not forget another selling point, the price. For a flake of this quality it's the greatest baccy value going today. I stocked my cellar.

A Sublime Flake in Every Respect
This is an excellent natural type smoke. Others claim that its a virginia / perique blend, and I agree that it must be based on that. This is pretty "full" for Stokkebye: their products lean towards the mild side IMO. Be that as it may, I find it to be a superb smoke, just full enough to be interesting, but it's not in the tongue-bite danger zone. Great flavor here, it has that raisin-like sweetness of the virginia, the peppery perique, and I'm not sure if it might contain a little burley too, but this is a great mix. This would be a good introduction to virginia flakes and other straight tobacco types due to its slightly toned-down nature. Great stuff!

Still not sure about this one yet, going to give it some cellar time and see how it does.

Adequate Navy Flake but watch the Bite!
This navy flake is adequate and what you expect as far as flavor and burns well…but I tend to dry portions out for a day or so as it lessens the bite this flake has.

Great price great service

Customer Testimonials
Maybe it's just my tastebuds, but I found Stokkebye's Navy Flake to be WAY better than other flakes I have tried. Considering the price point on this flake per ounce, it is also a no-brainer to buy this flake. Quality flake with a lower price! Also, after being stored for about 6-12 months it becomes really good! Stock up as much as you can. I will.
Half the fun for me is working with the flake. Fold and stuff, rub, its all part of the experience. I found this sweet, sort of grassy. Enjoyable move away from aromatics and into the larger world. Affordable and delicious.
Just tried this tobacco for the first time. If you like Dunhill Flake or Orlik Golden Sliced, this is a must try. Very nice example of Navy Flake.
I really like this flake. Similar to Orelik Golden Flake, but not identical. A good price for a good navy flake.
Great
The description is spot on. I've tried a few other navy flakes. Most didn't impress me. There are a few that were pretty good, but this one really pleased. Very smooth with just a little sweetness. Burns great right from the start with minimal relights. Tastes high end, but has a budget price. Great for a regular smoke if you want a break from aromatics, but still want a touch of flavor. Highly recommended, even if you've felt 'meh' about navy flakes before.
Great stuff! I got a sample of this from a fellow pipe smoker and I enjoyed it so much that I bought 5 oz of it. Nice and smooth with a great taste and aroma. I'll have to order more to fill up my jar! Ha! :)
I was looking for a bulk flake with quality blend at a reasonable price. This flake will be re-ordered in much larger quantity than the first 4oz. I'm working on. Very tasty, smooth burning, long lasting.
This is a REALLY good Va/Per in my opinion and priced in a way that you can stock up on enough for your cellar too, I think it has a very very light, almost undetectable rum casing that gives it enough sweetness to balance out the tiny bite some may experience from the small amount of Perique that's present here, I would definitely and already have ordered more
Smooth smoking. May make this my everyday smoke.
This blend is really good. This was my first flake ever and is still my favorite. The flavors are mellow, delicious and consistent to the bottom.The only con to this is if you're not careful it can flair up and cause some tongue bight.
This is a tasty Vaper. It is a regular in my rotation. I usually use the fold and stuff packing of this in my dedicated pipe for Vaper, my Peterson flame grain 999. Nice smoke. This pipe and the flake are meant for each other.
I am a big fan of this blend. Been smoking it a long time. Glad I found P&C, their prices and service is great. This is not a complex blend but when smoked slowly the flavor grows and stays right to the bottom of the bowl. I like the aroma. Occasionally add a little latakia or burly or both to it. Its a fun blend to experiment with. It's always my "last bowl of the day" . Being a flake it it can be smoked outside in the Oklahoma wind without burning too fast.
Being my first Navy Flake, I enjoy it. Nice mellow flavor, burns easy, loads nice.
