    Default Opinions on Skiff Mixture...

    I am getting ready to order some Squadron Leader, and figure I may give Skiff Mixture a try. Any opinions on it? The two SG tobaccos I have tried are SL (which I LOVE) and FVF (which I like a little less).

    Nothing wrong with Skiff at all. Not my favorite SG blend, but certainly a solid tobacco in its own right. If you like SL, give Perfection a try, or Navy Flake. Both have a healthy dose of latakia, and are in my opinion great tobaccos.
    You are what you is, and that's all it is.

    I have a tin of Skiff, but haven't popped it yet. Too many tobaccos to try and not enough time!

    If i had to pic a favorite baccy, Skiff would be it. i don't remember why I liked it more than Squadran Leader. I definitely need to get another tin and see if I still like it as much as I remember.

    That's the spirit. I may actually be leaning toward the St James Flake. Can anyone tell me what perique does for a smoke?

    Perique adds a bit of spice. Not hot, but more of an added dimension. Sort of what salt and pepper does to steak.
    You are what you is, and that's all it is.

    I find it also add a touch of a sort of pleasant sour note, like sweet & sour sauce, to the taste. And definitely some peppery tones too.
