Unfortunately the Peter Stokkebye Optimum is no longer distributed in the UK as the sales did not live up to the high demands of the distributor. This was one of our most popular blends and it shall leave a gaping hole in our shelves. We have found a substitute that is very similar to the Peter Stokkebye produced by Gawiths of Kendal called Ultimum.
As always we have left the original description and imagery on our website for historical reference and interest.
The Peter Stokkebye Optimum is one of Peter Stokkebye's most successful blends. The blending of Flue-cured tobaccos from Zimbabwe and Malawi with sweet processed Black Cavendish and mild Burley tobaccos gives a complex smoke which appears to have been top dressed with discreet fruity flavours. We have many debates in our shops as to whether the flavour resembles Christmas pudding, please let us know your opinions
Ready Rubbed Pipe Tobacco: The Peter Stokkebye Optimum Pipe Tobacco is a ready rubbed tobacco blend. Ready rubbed tobacco is made up of loose strands and is ready for immediate use in the pipe with no preparation for added convenience and enjoyment.
Loose packaged to order: Here at the Black Swan Specialist Tobacconist we buy the Peter Stokkebye Optimum in half kilo bags. This means we hand package your tobacco and inspect every strand before it reaches you.
