Stokkebye Bullseye Flake

Postby Dodger » Mon Oct 09, 2017 7:52 pm

Managed to get my hands on some Stokkebye Bullseye Flake at last ,so Christmas has come early .
This is the closest I've got to the late lamented Orlik Bullseye and I am going to have to ration it as I don't know if I can get a regular supply .

Enjoy it. Tobaccos have been affected so much by the upheavals. Lots of blends from the past are no longer with us. I have some Players Navy Cut Flake in a jar. No longer produced, so similar situation to yourself a bowlful every now and then!

I just got 4 ounces of the Bullseye Flake from 4noggins. A great smoke, I try to always have some on hand.

I agree - lovely stuff. I've a jar of about 6 ounces or more in my stash, sealed since December, 2014, and about 5 tins of the Orlik :)

One of my favorite tobaccos. I especially like it with a few years of age.

KevLa, I had never thought about aging the Bullseye Flake, but since you and SLR mention it, that seems like a great idea! Why didn't I think of this? Maybe because it's not a high falutin' tobacco, or just because I greedily smoke it as soon as it arrives! I really like many of Stokkebye's offerings, and they are so reasonably priced. That is something to be thankful for. But I am def going to age some now.

Oh, yeah, price has no bearing on suitability for aging!
Hope you enjoy your aged Luxury Bull's Eye Flake, when the time comes.

Orlik Bulls Eye has aged well so the Stokkebye should do so as well as it is very similar .

It's all made in the same factory. It's probably the same thing. This has been around for years but here's how it's made. :ugeek:
