Wonderful creamy smoke with a pleasant room note in my Rattray's Bagpiper with the churchwarden stem. I have a 1.5lb box ordered and plan to fill the cellar with even more.
Even better a year later

Bought a pound of this a little over a year ago, stuffed into Mason jars and forgot about it. Started smoking a little last week and wow - what a great tobacco. This is now my weekend smoke for those times I can sit and appreciate life. Good stuff.

My New Favorite
April 01, 2015
By: George G.
Is it possible for a tobacco to be both simple and complex? If so, then Luxury Bullseye Flake is it. Fold it, rub it out, whatever you like. The smoke is cool, the taste is pleasant and, because it's a coin, each bowl is just a little bit different f... Read Morerom the previous one. This has become by far my favorite non-aromatic, and I will continue to order it as long as it's being sold. Read Less

Great VaPer Intro
March 15, 2015
By: Bradley H.
If you mostly smoke aromatics and are looking to branch out into other blending styles then pick up an ounce of this. It's a high quality VaPer that has a bit of sweetness added with the Black Cavendish bullseye. It's a rather creamy and sweet flavor... Read More. The hay and grassy notes of the Virginias are there as well as the natural fruit like flavors of raisins or figs. There's a bit of peppery flavor from the Perique. It comes pretty close to the right moisture level. Loads and lights well. It's a nice smooth even cool burning blend. Doesn't give any tongue bite. I'd say it's a medium to strong blend as far as the nicotine goes. If you're a nic wimp like myself make sure you've snacked on something before firing up a bowl. Overall a great blend that's very affordable. Read Less

My experience of this tobacco depends on how it is stuffed into one's pipe - it's possible to get two completely different experiences.
When I first received my order I folded a coin into quarters and then inserted into my pipe with the center of th... Read Moree coin first - so the edges of the coin were in effect sticking upwards towards the top of the bowl. This also meant (with hindsight) that all of the center Cavendish part of the coin went to the bottom of the bowl and would be the last part smoked. Big mistake. This produced a smoke heavy with Perique and was too peppery for my taste. The Perique drowned everything else and was too much for me to smoke. I put aside my 4oz delivery, disappointed.
A few days later I tried again, this time with the idea of putting the folded coin 'edges first' into my pipe, with the center of the coin pointing upwards. This meant that the center Cavendish became the FIRST part of the smoke. This produced a completely different smoking experience - nice Virginia tastes and smells, a little creamy, hay and manure. Young Virginia, as others have noted, but pleasant nonetheless, and with quite a lot of deep flavor. As I smoked my bowl the Perique lower down then joined in the experience but was now blended with the Virginias and Cavendish giving a much more balanced and enjoyable smoke, much nearer to the Escudo experience. Now I sat there thinking "hey - this is a nice smoke, I might buy more of this", whereas after my first attempt I certainly wouldn't have ordered more.
So - an interesting experience. Can be a very nice smoke, very satisfying, and very close to Escudo, but only if packed in a certain way. I'm glad I discovered the difference.
Many people will be buying this hoping that it's 'as good as Escudo for half the price'. No, it's not Escudo, as many others have noted. It's close, if packed 'upside down', but it's three stars whereas Escudo is a clear four.
I'm glad I tried this tobacco. I'll be able to enjoy the rest of my order using the 'upside down' packing method. But it's also made me realise just how exceptionally good Escudo is, and I'd rather pay extra money and have the real thing. Read Less

This is a great tobacco, well harmonized between virginias, perique and black cavendish. To be honest, i couldn´t feel that much the cavendish, but even so, virginias and perique are smooth and sweet enough to be enjoyed.
