Peterson’s collegiate blend, University Flake, is a perfect mixture of mahogany, brown, and orange Virginias, and sun cured Burley from India. A sweet and tart top dressing of plum is added as for the finale. The mixture is slowly pressed for days into cakes. Sliced into a flake, it burns slowly and evenly.

    I have to admit that I expected something a little different here. However, I could not have been more pleased. This has to be one of my top 3 smokes now. First of all, this is a slightly sweet and fruity blend not aromatic fruity just faint. Decanting the tin is a pleasure, classy packaging little gold seal that holds the internal packaging closed. There is no real note until you unfold the quality paper surrounding the uniform flakes. Then the aroma wafts into the air gently.

    The nose is of mature fruits, figs, ripe apples and apricots. Not overwhelming, just pleasantly there. I tend to tear and rub the flakes, so as it is prepared the nose becomes more apparent. The moisture content like most tinned tobaccos, is a little more than smokeable strait from the tin. But after prep and 5 minutes of anticipation it is ready for your bowl.

    The first light is heady and the citrus comes to the front immediately The second light sends it to the background for the rest of the bowl. The Virginians fill the body of this smoke. I did not detect the burley here, it is lost at this point, at least in my estimation. It is cool burning and sweet, with faint hints not distinct notes, of the aforementioned citrus like a faint ghost. It burns so well and cool that even a heavy puffer will likely not get a bite.

    The smoke is not only cool but full and rich, thick with sugar and wafts around imparting it’s sweet aroma to the room. It is friendly and pleasant to even the most persnickety passersby. The smoke is white with just a tint of blue. It hangs close and opaque from the bowl and corner of your mouth.

    Halfway through the bowl a hint of nuttiness becomes a new faint background note, almost like a memory reminiscent of cashews. I believe this is where the burley comes in.

    All in all, this is a satisfying, pleasant and enjoyable smoke. Stock up on it. I plan on having no less than 3 tins in reserve from now on.

    You have to prevent yourself from eating some Flakes after you open the tin – this one is no exception. This blend is a little harsher than other Virginias although I tend to find Peterson blends a bit harsher in general. You may want to store it away for a bit before you open it. Tastes like lemon and granulated sugar mostly, although I can detect a hint of spiciness in there with the smokiness. Maybe a touch of perique? Anyways, take it easy with this stuff the first couple times. It tends to be pretty high in that good ol’ Vitamin N!

    When I opened this tin for the first time I was hit with the most intoxicating scent. This tobacco exudes an incredibly pleasing aroma. Once the first bowl was ready and I put fire to the flake that delicious scent only improved. Easily smoking down to the bottom.
