I have to say this tobacco blew me away. I felt as if a brick wall hit me. I have been very disappointed by most of the tin tobacco’s. The reviews allured me to buy them, but I wasted my money. Nightcap, Elizabethan, 1792, Full vergina Flake, cabbies Mixture to mention a few all hopeless, but not Peterson Irish Flake. This is fantastic full flavoured very strong and bursting with nicotine. You get your money’s worth. I would buy it again. Great tobacco.
Pipe Used: Various
Age When Smoked: New 1 year old tin
Purchased From: E A Carey’s
Similar Blends: Gawith and Hoggarth Sliced Brown Twist.

Yep, loved Irish Flake. FVF just fell flat with me. Didn't like tonquin in the 1792. The others I haven't tried.

If strong flavor or nic hit or both entertain you may I suggest Five Brothers and Ten Russians.

Smoking a bowl as we speak in a Peterson Short Classic 15. Oddly, when I first smoked it, it was very smooth and sweet, with the herbal tea-like flavors dominating. After being in a fairly often opened jar for about 5 months, I get much more Dark Fired spice now. Maybe my palette is just having an off night, though. I wouldn’t expect a blend to get more fiesty with age, so it must be me. Regardless, one of my top 5 tobaccos to date. So good, in fact, I ordered 10 tins to cellar once it came back in stock after my first initial tin. Very, very good flake.

If you want to kick it up a notch in strength and enjoy Irish Flake, I highly suggest making the leap to Happy Brown Bogie and some of the other ropes.
Plus one on the Happy Brown Bogie. The trick is to find it. Last I checked Watch City still had some.

I picked up a tin. Always glad to have tobacco on hand to chase the nicotine dragon. For some reason 5 brothers doesn't usually ring me.

Irish Flake is very good, but has become unavailable to me. When I want something strong I smoke 1792, Lakeland Dark, ODF or Royal Yacht. All very good blends. FVF may be my favorite blend of all time, but va/pers like Dunhill Navy Rolls and SG St James Flake are gaining on it.
I'll add that none of these were love at first sight/smoke. Sometimes you've got to grow with it.
