Esoterica Peacehaven is an elegant flake comprised of six Virginia tobaccos, light in color and rich in taste. Exceedingly mellow and easy to rub out, it should be smoked slowly to draw out the best of the blend, which is embodied in the delicate sweetness of the Virginias.

    I recently managed to acquire this offering from Esoterica; Peacehaven is pleasant and complex and it has taken me a while to truly get a handle on reviewing it.
    It took me a while simply to give Peacehaven its fair shake, and even then there’s a good deal to digest with this blend. The mellow, subtle taste and smokier, nuttier room note has more depth than most other Virginias.
    The tin note is pretty typical for a VA blend; the hay notes are stronger in this blend than the fig and citrus notes, giving only a hint of figgy sweetness.
    The individual flakes are very loose, easily fraying out into long ribbons but they are all packed together quite tight. This makes pulling an individual flake almost impossible and also lends itself to the presentation being a solid mass of pressed tobacco with a good deal of loose ribbon fraying away from it. While the frayed bits can and do dry out easily, the overall block of flakes is so tight together I am sure this will age nicely should I need it to.
    The taste is more mellow and smokey than most Virginias; this is the least sweet VA blend I’ve tried to date. However, it is not unpleasant; it is smooth, mellow and a bit earthy with just *enough* sweetness to make it truly pleasant.
    Peacehaven’s room note is truly where it shines; warm, sweet and nutty…I would say a room is improved for having Peacehaven smoked in it. I am certainly enjoying the way my car smells now (I tend to enjoy a pipe during my commutes).
    I was initially thrown by Peacehaven’s hefty $36 price tag; however, that was before I noticed that this was for 225g! This would mean a 50g or 100g tin would be about $8-$16, so this Esoterica is actually quite competitively priced given the quality!
    All in all, I think this is a good blend to keep on hand. I would not say it is my favorite, but it is a definite contender, and one I would certainly like to see back in stock!
