    This is an interesting blend. So, I will try and capture its qualities as best I can.

    Decant: Upon opening the tin you are immediately welcomed by a sweet pungent aroma. Reminiscent of figs and wet hay.

    Packaging: Disappointing. A plastic bag hap haphazardly wrapped around the tobacco. Like an afterthought. I completed the decanting by roughing it up a bit and placing it in a mason jar with a fresh lid.

    Texture: It was wet, sticky, and the cut very rough. It reminded me of chewing tobacco. It appeared to be roughly handled broken flakes that were rubbed somewhat but not completely. Like what must be left over when cutting flake tobaccos.

    Prepping the First bowl: Since the tobacco was wet and roughly cut. I rubbed it properly and let it set for about 15 mins. When I cam back it was still too wet to smoke. I left it for another 30 minutes before attempting to load it in the bowl.

    First bowl: I lit the bowl and charred it. Tamped it lightly and re-lit the bowl. It took some effort before I was rewarded with wonderful thick sweet smoke that was exactly like the initial decanting nose. The Virginians and the burly were up front. Sweet with notes of Maple sugars and moist hay. I did not detect any real spice as one would expect with an English blend. It burned a little hot because it was still a bit moist. You will also have to watch the burly so that it does not bite. With several relights, I managed to smoke the bowl pretty close to the bottom, but even then I got sizzling from the build up of the moisture from this one. All in all it was pleasant, satisfying and a robust sweet smoke.

    Nose and Notes: Initial light through half bowl, Sweet. Hay. Very slightly nutty. Half bowl, strong maples, sweet nuttiness, and caramel. Finishing it, all the rest with a surprisingly small touch of spice towards the bottom of the bowl.

    Through the rest: I took about half of the tobacco out of the mason jar spread it and left it overnight to dry out. In the morning it was completely dry to the point of being crunchy. I placed it back in the mason jar shook the whole thing together and forgot about it for two days. Coming back to it after letting it sit I opened the jar to find that the moisture had dropped to a level that only required about 10 minutes to become smokeable. The reward was the same wonderful smoke but with a renewed sweetness, coolness, and a single relight after the char.

    Thoughts: Do not smoke this out of the tin. Rub it out thoroughly, dry about half, place in a jar or decanter then, wait. Two to three days at least shaking it up each day to make sure the mix is homogeneously mixed. I imagine you could do it differently but this worked for me right off the bat. Definitely a blend to have on hand. It does go well with strong black coffee and unsweetened tea, a peaty scotch or such. It does not go well with something sweet. If you like cream and sugar in your coffee skip it with this one, you will miss the more subtle notes and negate its wonderful inherent sweetness. I will definitely buy some more of this to decant dry and mature.

    Rating: I could only give 4 stars based on how it was packaged, the extreme moisture content, the cut, and the amount of effort it takes to make it smokeable. That being said, it is a great smoke worth the initial effort.

    Haven’t actually tried this myself, but I’ve been in the same room as someone who has. Smells fresh and syrupy and intermingles nicely with the aromas of other pipe tobaccos.

    I almost gave this five stars. This is becoming one of my favorite tobaccos. I’m not a die hard Peterson tobacco fan, but this is right up my alley. This one might give you the niccups; makes me a bit woozy if I smoke it fast! Goes well with a cup of coffee.
    The flavor is strong, but the maple sugars really come through midway through the bowl giving you a subtle caramel sweetness that balances things out nicely. Leaves a great aftertaste in the mouth and the room note is actually more than tolerable. I would definitely recommend it if you like a medium to strong blend.
