The Nurnberg brothers Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, whose elegant Dublin tobacconist first opened for business in 1865 on Grafton Street, Dublin could scarcely have dreamt that they would participate in the birth of a legend.

Friedrich & Heinrich, who christened their shop simply 'Kapp Brothers', soon made a name for themselves making and selling quality Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. It was not long before Charles Peterson, walked into Kapp Brothers Grafton Street premises armed with a revolutionary pipe and ambitious plans for the future.

There and then, Peterson suggested that the brothers go into partnership with him to turn his pipe dream into the world's dream pipe. They agreed and the company was renamed Kapp & Peterson. Kapp and Peterson went on to become Dublin's most fashionable and respected manufacturer and purveyor of fine smoking products. Pipe and cigar smokers would stroll down to the elegant premises for professional advice on the subtle nuances that determine a good handmade cigar or pipe. The Peterson brand was embraced by politicians, business leaders, sportsmen, artists and writers.

The skills and craft which Charles Peterson applied to his original invention are continued by the dedicated team of craftsmen at Peterson today. Whether as a gift for a friend or for your own personal use, you will appreciate the excellence of the Peterson range of cigars, tobaccos, pipes and smoking accessories.

Peterson's University Flake is a relaxing enjoyable blend of Virginias and Burley with a mild flavouring of plum.

It's based on select Virginia grades combined with orange, brown and mahogany Virginia and sun cured leaf from India. The leaves are pressed together for days to form a cake, which is then sliced into uniform flakes.

It smokes well, reliably and steadily, giving lots of delicious smoke full of Virginia's sweet grassy hay and earthy notes and Burley's nutty tones, with a hint of plum that weaves in and out, tantalising the taste buds.

This flake is wide cut, dark brown to golden brown and is marbled in the usual flake fashion. It appears almost river like, with currents and eddies apparent on the surface.

It rubs out quite well and gives a slightly nutty, fruity aroma of plum and the base tobaccos.

Once you have filled your pipe using your preferred method, it takes the flame easily allowing you to enjoy at your leisure.

This flake is enjoyable as an all day smoke, or for times of restful contemplation.

Peterson pipe tobaccos are often more known for their more traditional, British style tobacco blends, such as University Flake and Irish Flake, even more so since they picked up the old Dunhill mixtures. However, they are equally talented when it comes to flavoured blends. Luxury Blend is a great example of this, with Orange Virginias, sweet Black Cavendish and Burley, topped with a vanilla and honey casing. Personally, I also detect a slight hint of citrus fruit. When smoked, it is subtly sweet, without being sickly. A very nice balance.

Nice every day tobacco, lovely aroma and taste, burns quite fast straight out of the tin but is still a smashing smoke
by Vince on Saturday 24 December, 2016
this is a very nice "all round" smoke. if you like your pipe to taste of just a good tobacco with out added flavours , then this is for you. it is an old style tobacco that reminds me of Pubs, from years ago. before the Health police made us stand out side.....

I am a fan of Peterson pipe tobacco, but this blend is boring and non descript, go for connoisseurs choice, a far better smoke straight from the tin.
