Samuel Gawith Bothy Flake Click for details
A traditional blend of pressed Virginias with a hint of latakia and a dash of Highland malt whiskey make Bothy Flake a medium strength, aromatic and easy smoking tobacco. A Kearvaig Pipe Club Tobacco.

Notes: By K&K: Bob Gregory doesnt know how many Bothies (small huts) there are in the Highlands, but he estimates about 40 of em. The good thing about these cabins is that they are allowed to smoke here. You can do everything in such a hut: You can make a fire to keep yourself warm, eart the leftover food, and drink the leftover drink. The prerequisite, however, is that food an drink be stocked up again for the next hiker.

These little huts have saved my life once says Bob. Many years ago, with m father I spent two nights in the Cairngorm Mountains in the wet, cold and windsy weather. My father had sprained his foot and could barely walk. Our luck was the Corar Bothy who gave us shelter during the storm.

The Bothy Flake is a thanksgiving to these small huts. Consisting of a full Virginia tobacco with a small share of latakia from Cyprus. The flake gets its smoky-peaty undertone with the addition of a typical Highland malt whiskey essence, which is highlighted by the latakia. Medium in strength and aromatic with a full-bodied room note. A genuine Highlander!

Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake w/ Perique Click for details
Created as head blender Jeremy Reeves ideal impression of a Virginia/Perique mixture, Cornell & Diehls Carolina Red Flake with Perique begins with a blend of stoved and unstoved, top-grade, single-crop North Carolina Red-Orange Virginia tips. Through the stoving process, this select flue-cured leaf maintains its naturally bright, citrusy, and zesty character in the high tones while projecting a deeper, baritone foundation that pairs exceptionally well with its generous measure of genuine St. James Perique— grown, harvested, processed, and barrel-aged on a single farm in the heart of St. James Parish, Louisiana.
 
Carolina Red Flake with Perique offers numerous flavors and aromas, balancing pepper and piquancy with undertones of port wine and stone fruits alongside brighter citrusy highlights. The stoving process, together with the Perique, lends an unparalleled richness and nuance to the mixture, complementing the unstoved leafs brighter notes with figgy sweetness, breadiness, and earthy spice. While incredibly complex right out of the tin, its a blend that will no doubt increase in complexity and continue to improve with age.

2021s edition of Carolina Red Flake with Perique begins with equal measures of stoved and unstoved Red-Orange Virginia Tips from a single farm in eastern North Carolina. These tips come from a rare, high priming representing only the top five leaves of the plant, and they feature the highest sugar content of any Virginia leaf previously used in the Carolina Red Flake project: 13.53%. Its deep, tangy sweetness serves as a foundation for the blends darker, baritone notes, setting the stage for authentic St. James Perique — grown, harvested, cured, and barrel-aged all on a single, family-owned farm in the heart of St. James Parish, Louisiana, by traditional farmers with three generations of Perique-growing experience.

Together, these special components produce a complex, nuanced, and mature flavor. From the rare Virginia Tips come a rich, fruity sweetness and tang that complement the deeper, darker, stone-fruit notes of Perique. It surpasses the usual grassy or hay-like character of Virginias with a redolence of baked goods, and a clove/cinnamon-like spice on the palate. Given its high sugar content and mature flavor, it should age exceptionally well, its inherent sweetness and dark fruity notes deepening with time. For aficionados of Va/Per mixtures, this blend may be the perfect incarnation, and its naturally sweet character makes it accessible even to those more accustomed to Aromatic mixtures.

We created Carolina Red Flake as a tribute to the Old Belt, to the traditional harvesting and processing of Carolina tobacco straight from Carolina soil. Building on that tradition, Carolina Red Flake with Perique elevates equal measures of stoved and unstoved, single-farm, North Carolina Red-Orange Virginia tips from 2020 with a generous portion of genuine St. James Perique. The resulting flavor balances pepper and spice with undertones of port wine, stone fruits, and citrus. Its rich, deep, and complex. Its how a Virginia/Perique flake should be.

The third installment of Sutliffs highly anticipated seasonal pipe tobacco, Cringle Flake Holiday Edition 2021 is a blend of aged, partially Cavendished Red Virginias and 18-year-old Perique. This incredible holiday mixture presents an exceptional flavor right out of the tin and a deep richness similar in character to a 10-year-old Virginia/Perique. Contributing to that mature flavor, the flue-cured leaf has undergone a unique secondary fermentation process, steamed for one hour before being combined with the aged Perique and pressed. Naturally sweet with spicy, piquant undertones, the result is incredibly complex with notes of stone fruits, earthy spice, and molasses.

Russ Ouellette Firestorm Click for details
Russ took the Virginias used in his best known Virginia based blend, Anniversary Kake, and amped up the perique content, then added a splash of some very nice dark-fired Kentucky leaf. Fire Storm is rather sweet, but the spice shows up shortly thereafter and builds gradually through the end, with a peppery finish. For smokers who like bold Virginia/perique blends.

Notes: From Pipes&Cigars website, written by Russ:

I’ve been blending pipe tobacco for nearly forty years, but ten years ago is when things really took off. I had made some blends for our brick & mortar store that did well, so we put them up for sale on P&C, and that was the beginning of Hearth & Home. Recently I was asked to make a new series that would let me stretch my wings, as it were, trying to think outside the box and to use tobaccos and techniques that were different than anything I had done previously. I welcomed this challenge. The powers-that-be, here at P&C wanted me to put my name on these blends, and here’s the first entry in the RO Series: Fire Storm.

GL Pease Gaslight Click for details
From Gregory Pease: Deep, rich and full flavored, Gaslight burns very slowly, delivering a lingering, satisfying smoke for the true connoisseur of latakia based blends. The red Virginias present a background of natural sweetness, whilst fine Orientals provide just the right amount of spice. I like it best sliced thinly, rubbed out and packed loosely in smaller bowls for a satisfying, surprisingly long-lasting smoke. Easily sliced, easily rubbed out and easily packed.

Notes: This is the 7th blend in the Old London Series.

MacBaren HH Rustica Flake Click for details
The Nicotiana Rustica is the sister of the tobacco plant that we know and love (Nicotiana Tabacum). Native to the Amazon region and other parts of South America, the plant and the various types of use spread throughout the American continent. The English settlers found the rustica tobacco in North America in 1607 and saw how the native Indians smoked the tobacco in clay pipes. Since the nicotine content of the rustic plant is unusually high, however, it quickly went out of fashion when the Virginia and burley tobaccos known today were discovered and spread. Today, tobacco on a rustic basis can only be found in Eastern Europe, in the countries of the Middle East and in Asia. A new process was developed to make this very potent tobacco edible for the German palate. The tobacco leaves are sun dried and thus retain their natural sugar. Dark Virginia and Burley were also added to balance the flake. Like all flakes of the HH series, the Rustica was also hot pressed, which allows the tobacco flavors to combine optimally and to mature through a light fermentation. Despite all these measures, the HH Rustica still has a very high nicotine content, it is by far the strongest tobacco in the Mac Baren range and is probably one of the strongest pipe tobacco worldwide. We recommend that you eat well and use a small pipe before enjoying this flake, but dont be put off; the Mac Baren HH Rustica is probably the most extraordinary tobacco of recent years and an absolute pleasure experience.

MacBaren Royal Twist Click for details
Among the most elusive of Mac Barens spun-cut mixtures is Royal Twist, a distinctive Virginia/Perique blend enhanced by Dark-Fired Kentucky. Despite strong popularity and demand, it was delisted in the 1960s due to shared name registrations and unfortunately was taken off the market. While it later returned as Mac Barens flagship Roll Cake, one of the blending houses most popular tobaccos of all time, the recipe had changed and no longer included Perique.

Select Virginias, Dark-Fired Kentucky, and Perique form the core of this complex mixture, elevated by a naturally sweet, whole-leaf Virginia wrapper for a nuanced, all-day smoking experience with just the right amount of peppery, smoky spice. Meticulously handspun into ropes, aged for weeks, and sliced into delicate coins, Royal Twist is a testament to Mac Barens proud spun-cut legacy.

Cornell & Diehl The Beast Click for details
Legend has it that Aleister Crowley, famed adept of the Order of the Golden Dawn and founder of the Ordo Templi Orientis, is purported to have made a habit of smoking rum-soaked perique as a meditative aid.

To date, many a dabbler has pursued his own manifestation of this concoction out of sheer curiosity. We have too. And so in the spirit of the nefarious occultist himself, we sought to tame the Beast with our own rendering of the recipe, soaked for seven days in spiced rum, so that we might share our vision of it with the most inquisitive and brave of pipe smokers.

Notes: From Cornell & Diehl website: The Beast features 51% Perique, soaked in spiced rum for seven days and supported by C&Ds proprietary Red Virginia Cavendish, unsweetened Black Cavendish, and a whisper of Dark-Fired Kentucky. Given Periques naturally high nicotine levels, its majority presence makes for quite a robust smoke, yet as a mixture, its exceedingly complex: The modest addition of Dark-Fired Kentucky lends the blend a subtle, tangy note of mesquite smoke, with the Red Virginia and unsweetened Black Cavendish supporting the Periques natural flavors of stone fruits and piquant spice.

1 Bengal Slices Bengal Slices Single Barrel Click for details The Bengal Slices family continues to grow, this time with a limited-edition blend with a very special and unique story behind it. The folks behind the brand were told about the availability of a fresh, empty bourbon barrel from one of the best-known single-barrel brands on the market, Blantons. They selected a special tobacco blend with a more modest amount of Latakia, so the infusion of bourbon flavor would be clearly noticeable. The tobacco was laid to rest in the barrel for a full month to allow the infusion of buttery-smooth bourbon flavor to take hold. Then the tobacco was pressed into a crumble cake to further embed the flavor into the leaf.

Since the barrel can only be used once since the essence of the premium bourbon evaporates fairly quickly, they were limited to a relatively small number of tins that could be produced. The result is a very different blend with a mellow English blend flavor supported by the gentle infusion of caramelly bourbon flavor. Va, Lat, Or 1.8 oz 1 1 yr 4 mo 1 yr 4 mo

Lo! where the Giant on the mountain stands,
 His blood-red tresses deep’ning in the sun,
 With death-shot glowing in his fiery hands,
 And eye that scorcheth all it glares upon

2 Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake Click for details A blend of the finest North Carolina grown red Virginias, harvested in 2015, our Carolina Red Flake is a tribute to the Old Belt. Plucked straight from Carolina soil, these top-tier Virginias were all grown, thrashed, blended, pressed, and then lovingly sliced and tinned right here in the heart of old tobacco country.  Sweet, tangy, and spicy, Carolina Red Flake is both surprisingly straightforward and pleasantly complex: youll find its rich, deep, and earthy, with undertones of dried cranberries, orchard grass, and citrus. Va 4 oz 2 4 yr 4 yr
2 Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake w/ Perique Click for details Created as head blender Jeremy Reeves ideal impression of a Virginia/Perique mixture, Cornell & Diehls Carolina Red Flake with Perique begins with a blend of stoved and unstoved, top-grade, single-crop North Carolina Red-Orange Virginia tips. Through the stoving process, this select flue-cured leaf maintains its naturally bright, citrusy, and zesty character in the high tones while projecting a deeper, baritone foundation that pairs exceptionally well with its generous measure of genuine St. James Perique— grown, harvested, processed, and barrel-aged on a single farm in the heart of St. James Parish, Louisiana.
 
Carolina Red Flake with Perique offers numerous flavors and aromas, balancing pepper and piquancy with undertones of port wine and stone fruits alongside brighter citrusy highlights. The stoving process, together with the Perique, lends an unparalleled richness and nuance to the mixture, complementing the unstoved leafs brighter notes with figgy sweetness, breadiness, and earthy spice. While incredibly complex right out of the tin, its a blend that will no doubt increase in complexity and continue to improve with age.

2021s edition of Carolina Red Flake with Perique begins with equal measures of stoved and unstoved Red-Orange Virginia Tips from a single farm in eastern North Carolina. These tips come from a rare, high priming representing only the top five leaves of the plant, and they feature the highest sugar content of any Virginia leaf previously used in the Carolina Red Flake project: 13.53%. Its deep, tangy sweetness serves as a foundation for the blends darker, baritone notes, setting the stage for authentic St. James Perique — grown, harvested, cured, and barrel-aged all on a single, family-owned farm in the heart of St. James Parish, Louisiana, by traditional farmers with three generations of Perique-growing experience.

Together, these special components produce a complex, nuanced, and mature flavor. From the rare Virginia Tips come a rich, fruity sweetness and tang that complement the deeper, darker, stone-fruit notes of Perique. It surpasses the usual grassy or hay-like character of Virginias with a redolence of baked goods, and a clove/cinnamon-like spice on the palate. Given its high sugar content and mature flavor, it should age exceptionally well, its inherent sweetness and dark fruity notes deepening with time. For aficionados of Va/Per mixtures, this blend may be the perfect incarnation, and its naturally sweet character makes it accessible even to those more accustomed to Aromatic mixtures.

We created Carolina Red Flake as a tribute to the Old Belt, to the traditional harvesting and processing of Carolina tobacco straight from Carolina soil. Building on that tradition, Carolina Red Flake with Perique elevates equal measures of stoved and unstoved, single-farm, North Carolina Red-Orange Virginia tips from 2020 with a generous portion of genuine St. James Perique. The resulting flavor balances pepper and spice with undertones of port wine, stone fruits, and citrus. Its rich, deep, and complex. Its how a Virginia/Perique flake should be.

This incredible holiday mixture presents an exceptional flavor right out of the tin and a deep richness similar in character to a 10-year-old Virginia/Perique.

2 Cornell & Diehl Eight State Burley Click for details Honoring historic US Burley growing regions, Cornell & Diehls Small Batch: Eight State Burley showcases the often overlooked nuance and complexity of air-cured leaf, beginning with a specially sourced, matured blend of 2015 White and 2014 Dark Burleys — offering a mellow, creamy nuttiness, as well as a subtle, soft cocoa flavor on the palate. Top-tier Canadian Brights and SM2-18 Red Virginias (the same grade as in last years run of Carolina Red Flake and Carolina Red Flake with Perique) complement those distinctive flavors with layers of sweetness, tang, and bready spice. Finally, Oriental tobaccos, well aged for 16 years, further contribute to the complexity of this unique Burley mixture: A blend of rare Sokhoum, Samsun, and Katerini sun-cured leaf from 2005 add a lightly floral, oily, spicy and tart flavor — their sweetness having deepened and their sour notes having muted with age.

The blended mixture is pressed, sliced, and tumbled into an old-fashioned chop-block or ready-rubbed cut for an elegant balance of easy preparation and optimized aging potential. Eight State Burley is perhaps the most elevated rendition of a Burley blend available on the market today: Handcrafted in the Carolinas using specially sourced, rare varietals and components of the highest caliber, it evolves in depth and character from first light to final puff — offering a familiar, comforting, and nostalgic flavor that expands to challenge preconceptions and set the new standard for Burley blends across the board. --(Submitted by Zepfan84) Bur, Or, Va 4 oz 2 1 yr 5 mo 1 yr 5 mo

1 Sutliffe Tobacco Company Hearth & Home - Black House 10th Anniversary Click for details In 2011, the Seattle and New York Pipe Clubs acquired a large tin of Balkan Sobranie 759 that was around 23 years-old and tried to figure out what to do with it. They decided to send samples to three blenders - Carl McAllister of Sutliff, Mike McNiel of McClelland, and Russ Ouellette of Hearth & Home - and asked them to try to replicate the blend for a contest at the 2011 Chicagoland Pipe and Tobacciana Show. The challenge was modifying the blend to accommodate 23 years of aging. When the contest, called the Balkan Sobranie 759 Throwdown, was completed, Russ entry, now known as Hearth & Home Marquee BlackHouse, was the winner.

To celebrate a decade of this now classic blend, Russ wanted to do something special. When he learned about a small cache of well-aged Orientals the answer was simple - substitute the Orientals from the original with this vintage leaf. Because the amount of the aged orientals is very limited, he had to do this as a limited edition blend called Hearth & Home BlackHouse 10th Anniversary. This was a one-time run.

1 MacBaren HH Rustica Flake Click for details The Nicotiana Rustica is the sister of the tobacco plant that we know and love (Nicotiana Tabacum). Native to the Amazon region and other parts of South America, the plant and the various types of use spread throughout the American continent. The English settlers found the rustica tobacco in North America in 1607 and saw how the native Indians smoked the tobacco in clay pipes. Since the nicotine content of the rustic plant is unusually high, however, it quickly went out of fashion when the Virginia and burley tobaccos known today were discovered and spread. Today, tobacco on a rustic basis can only be found in Eastern Europe, in the countries of the Middle East and in Asia. A new process was developed to make this very potent tobacco edible for the German palate. The tobacco leaves are sun dried and thus retain their natural sugar. Dark Virginia and Burley were also added to balance the flake. Like all flakes of the HH series, the Rustica was also hot pressed, which allows the tobacco flavors to combine optimally and to mature through a light fermentation. Despite all these measures, the HH Rustica still has a very high nicotine content, it is by far the strongest tobacco in the Mac Baren range and is probably one of the strongest pipe tobacco worldwide. We recommend that you eat well and use a small pipe before enjoying this flake, but dont be put off; the Mac Baren HH Rustica is probably the most extraordinary tobacco of recent years and an absolute pleasure experience.

1 Cornell & Diehl The Beast Click for details Legend has it that Aleister Crowley, famed adept of the Order of the Golden Dawn and founder of the Ordo Templi Orientis, is purported to have made a habit of smoking rum-soaked perique as a meditative aid.

To date, many a dabbler has pursued his own manifestation of this concoction out of sheer curiosity. We have too. And so in the spirit of the nefarious occultist himself, we sought to tame the Beast with our own rendering of the recipe, soaked for seven days in spiced rum, so that we might share our vision of it with the most inquisitive and brave of pipe smokers.

Notes: From Cornell & Diehl website: The Beast features 51% Perique, soaked in spiced rum for seven days and supported by C&Ds proprietary Red Virginia Cavendish, unsweetened Black Cavendish, and a whisper of Dark-Fired Kentucky. Given Periques naturally high nicotine levels, its majority presence makes for quite a robust smoke, yet as a mixture, its exceedingly complex: The modest addition of Dark-Fired Kentucky lends the blend a subtle, tangy note of mesquite smoke, with the Red Virginia and unsweetened Black Cavendish supporting the Periques natural flavors of stone fruits and piquant spice.
