Quality flake
This is a quality tobacco. It has the strength that I wish most Virginia's had, but the burley rounds it out a bit too much for me. It's top note is rich fruit and comes out in the smoke the exact same way it does in the tin. Its not overly citrus or sticky sweet like other flakes can be, so it does excel in its particular category. Definitely worth a try if you're exploring flakes

Lacking
University Flake did not live up to the hype for me...good thing I ordered three tins to see if it improves with age.

Consistent, as always!
I've never had a problem or issue with P&C. I like their prices, selection, and service and will continue to shop here.

My Dessert Island Tobacco
This is my dessert island tobacco. I have several tobaccos in my regular rotation but if I could only have one, this would be it. Lovely flakes of Burley/Virginia goodness with a light fruity topping.

This is my personal favorite
I get a little irritated when I run out of this one. I'm still very new to pipe smoking. I noticed this one is labeled as English style, however I taste no lakeland spice or anything soapy about it. I feel it's almost a non aromatic. Should be a winner for everyone.

Excellent
Smoking a bowl of this right now. I've smoked a pipe off and on for about 20 years, and have always gravitated toward aromatics, though I've tried here and there to branch out into non-aromatics. This is the first non-aromatic to win me over. This stuff is damn delicious, no two ways about it. Opening the tin, I was struck by the plum-like quality of the aroma. I don't get a lot of that while smoking it though (maybe a touch of sweetness from time to time); mostly just a deep, tobacco flavor that, as some others have noted, is a little "cigar-like". Having smoked several bowls now, at the end of each I've been impressed by just how satisfying this tobacco is. It's also a bit heady, must contain more nicotine that's I'm used to in a pipe tobacco. Don't pretend to be a particularly sophisticated pipe smoker, but I will definitely be ordering more of this.

Extremely satisfying and worth the money.
If I only had one word for this tobacco, it would be satisfying. If I could add a qualifier, it would be extremely satisfying. I picked up a tin of this at the local tobacconist while waiting for my Pipes and Cigars order to come in, and I must say I am very happy with this blend. Despite its strength, it has little tongue bite. When packed properly it burns without being relit more than once. The three bowls I have consumed have been heavenly, with a great nicotine buzz and flavors of caramel. Twenty minutes of light but constant puffing leaves me with a great feeling of pleasure and satisfaction. Great for after a meal or with a drink of dark rum or cognac. Will be ordering from Pipes and Cigars in the future. I have been smoking Captain Black Royal for a few weeks, and it just doesn't compare with Peterson's University Flake

A solid Flake for any smoker.
One of the best Flakes available. I have tried numerous (not all) Flake offerings from differing makers and as far as ease of smoking, lack of tongue bite and bold and flavorful smokes, this Flake is near the very top. I love this Flake hands down and I could easily be forced to smoke only this tobacco for life. Medium strength with caramel and burned (in a good way) campfire coffee in the finish. A hearty flake for sure without bite or harshness.

Great All Around
Love this website! They had exactly what I need for a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Price and shipping cost was so reasonable and the package came early!!

Good Flake, worthwhile smoke.
This has grown on me. It's similar to Old Dublin, it burns well, has good flavour, packs nicely and leaves a fine ash. This is in my daily rotation.

A solid flake with good flavour
This is a good smoke. The flake rubs out very well and burns to a fine ash. Or fold and stuff and it keeps going with a clear draw. The flavour is well rounded and this has become a daily smoke for me.

Not too impressed
The tin note is out of this world and I would say that some plum came through in the smoking as well. But I must echo the thoughts of others in saying that overall it tasted like a cigar, and not in the way I thought I might enjoy it. Of course the nicotine is strong as well, which makes it a more difficult smoke for a lightweight like me. I haven't given up on it, but first impression it going to leave it difficult to come back to it with any speed.

My favorite tobacco
If you enjoy a strong but flavorful smoke, you really can't go wrong with UF. This is my go to tobacco, perhaps my favorite tobacco I've ever tried. Peterson knocks it out of the park every time.
Customer Testimonials
Rui 01724z. Confirmation I wanted to like this before I got it. But I can't say that it worked out that way. That is not to say it was bad, per se, but it was a bit over-powering to my taste. The flavor I found to be abrasive and somewhat one dimensional. That being said, I can see myself smoking this on rare occasions as a substitute for a cigar but is certainly not a relaxing smoke in my book.
University Flake is a nice, bold representation of the whole flake style. It's certainly not something I'd hand off to a novice I'm trying to get interested in the hobby, but it's also not offputingly overpowering for those interested in something with a little kick. When rubbed out and dried, it burns cool and tastes pretty much like its tin notes, which are of plums and spices. I'd recommend this stuff for someone who is interested in testing the waters outside of aromatics.
Peterson University Flake to me is about as perfect of a smoke as I have come across in my short few years of smoking a pipe and I haven't found any other blend quite like it (I prefer a mild to medium profile). I have found the flavor and smoke to be consistent from tin to tin and bowl to bowl.
Tasty and cigar-like with a hints of plum and grassy hay. Medium-strong, and burns well with fold and twist with approximately 1 hour dry-time. This one makes the cut, and will always be in my rotation!
Very good smoke. Burnt great and tasted good.
A very tasty pipe tobacco. Slightly sweet plum-like flavors, pleasant aroma. I'll definitely be buying more.
An amazing smoke... From first to last puff tastes better and better...
Tastes like a cigar. Kind of strong to me. If I wanted to smoke a cigar, I would smoke a cigar. I don't want a cigar in my pipe. Ha! This one is not for me.
