A unique mixture of selected tobaccos including golden Virginia and black cavendish, topped with a cream caramel flavor. To make this wonderful tobacco even more attractive, it is blended with hand-rubbed Virginia flake which results in a fantastic aroma.

Wow...this one is not so good for me. The tobbaco smells nice, but the smoke is basically tasteless with the exception of a chemical, burning tang. Dissapointing blend from Peterson.

Peterson - Sweet Killarney.

Contrary to popular opinion I actually quite enjoyed this. You can easily detect the caramel/cream in it which I found to be of a pleasant strength. On the negative side (as many state) if you draw hard it will bite quite strongly, so approach it with ease. If taken steadily I found it to be quite forgiving with tongue bite, though. The taste is very sweet which may be too much for many people but the sweetness can be easily identified as caramel/cream .

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Three stars.

I first tried Sunset Breeze (the other aromatic in the Peterson aromatic series) and because it was way too sweet for me, I avoided trying Sweet Killarney for several months. I recently gave it a shot and was glad I did.

Unlike Breeze, Killarney is not as heavily cased and smoked more like tobacco. The tin says the blend has a caramel topping. I guess that flavor just appeals to me when I smoke it. I also received sort of a light chocolate/vanilla taste.

This blend is easy to load, smokes mostly dry and cool, and will leave you satisfied if you enjoy aromatics with a little more tobacco backbone.

After a pipeful or two, I must confess that I have felt very disappointed with this tobacco: in the tin, this aromatic has an incredibly great smell. However, I had no pleasure smoking it : the promising "crème caramel" flavouring seemed to have disappeared.

After a while, I opened the tin once again, and… Guess what? I could not stop from smoking it. Is it the (short) ageing, or a slight change in my palate? I cannot tell.

Nevertheless, these days, this is one of my favourite tobaccos after a heavy lunch or dinner. I smoke it with a coffee and it seems to me that I need no dessert!

I think the negative views of this tobacco is a bit unfair. I'm a fan of Petersen tobaccos with Irish Oak and Irish flake my favourites. I won't say Sweet Killarney is another favourite but, on the other hand, it's not really as bad as some of the reviews make it. I dry the tobacco spread open on a piece of paper. I "prime" my pipe after it's been charged with SK; light the tobacco until it's burning evenly. I then tamp it down a bit and leave the pipe for, say an hour. When I then relight, the peppery taste is amost gone completely and I enjoy the baccy. I like the sweetness, very nice room note, good nicotine kick and the fact that it burns down to dottle. No gurgle, no tongue bite. A good tobacco over all. I always have a tin in my rotation.

I have been smoking a pipe for over a decade and I would like to think my technique is down pat as I can smoke Virginia's with patience and control and do not get bitten anymore but boy this and Sunset Breeze bit the living hell out of me. Maybe they are like Macbaren's tobacco that is designed for Europeans to smoke through a filter... I don't know but I do not want to go through the bite again. Smelled good though....

Again Peterson hits the mark albeit mildly with a very pleasing aromatic blend. The tin note is frankly out of this world. You get caramel you get honey you even get a fudge smell. Light up was fine and first puff or two were really tasty. Things settled down a bit and the flavors started becoming very mild. Hints of honey and caramel and something that seemed like perhaps chocolate but these flavors are only hints. Peterson has developed some nice blends and this is another one. These are all very mild blends ment to be sipped not puffed. I find smoking with a P-lip stem makes the flavor and taste last a bit longer and remain cooler. This is a very pleasing aromatic blend that just about anyone can enjoy. By the way the smoke smells delicious so the wife may accept this blend in the house!!!!.............or not😔

Sweet Killarney? Uh-uh, Sweet Lord! What is this mixture of nastiness? Can't be tobacco?...can it? The pseudo caramel casing inundated my senses and it was like a vomitus coating of saccharine had plated my palate. I found nothing redeeming about this horrible mess. This is the worst aromatic I have ever encountered and it may very well have ruined my pipe. Time to break out the everclear, brush and about a dozen pipe cleaners. Blecky poo, Peterson, ewww!

I should have learned from my experience with their Sherlock Holmes blend, but oh well. This tobacco has a wonderful caramel tin note. Other than that, it's pretty useless. The worst tobacco that I have ever tried by far. The first puff isn't so bad. After that, your taste buds become so steamed that you cannot taste anything. The room note was barely noticeable and nothing to write home about. I gave this tin away too (although it would have been a great potpourri just to leave out on the nightstand). No more Peterson blends for me. Lesson learned this time.

Nice tin aroma. Fruity and perhaps a bit nutty [burley?]. Always a hot burn. Lacks depth although a 'woody' taste becomes apparent as the bowl heats up. With little character, and a tendency to become a little 'bitey' I set this blend aside for some months and came back to it again tonight several hours after a pipe of Gawith Hoggarth Ennerdale Flake and confirm that Sweet Killarney is a nondescript aromatic that is no longer going to find space in my tobacco stocks. Try something else!!

Even after smoking a pipe for over 40 years, I still look for the illusive perfect blend. I do prefer aromatics, but find many of them quite lacking. I got a tin of Sweet Killarney when I bought a new Peterson pipe from Smoking Pipes.com.

I was surprised to see so many negative reviews for the Peterson Sweet Killarney. I think it has a pleasant taste, nearly zero tongue bite, and almost no aftertaste. There are many other blends that when I awake the next morning, it tastes like rodents marched through my mouth during the night.

It does seem to have a bit of a nicotene hit, which I don't care for. But, in my GBD Dublin, which is rather small, it smoked for 1hr 15min. Perhaps that's why the N hit. Perhaps half a bowl will be sufficient.

All in all, I find it a pleasant tin of tobacco. I will try another, and see if it varies from tin to tin. It could be that I got one of the good ones, not to be repeated.

I tried, i swear i tried to like it. But it doesnt let you. Sweet Kill-tongue-y. Sweet disillusion.

It is true that in the tin it smells wonderful, sweet caramel with a hint of vanilla, not overhelming... but that is not the really important thing for a smoker, as we dont smell the tobacco, we smoke it. And when it comes to smoke it Sweet Killarney betrays you fully. It is also true, it burns hot, no matter the technique employed, no matter the pipe used, no matter anything. It is a tobacco that has an over irritable temper. It gets hot easily and obliges you to lay down your pipe. So expect multiple relights if you want to avoid a severe tongue burn. Strike one.

There is something with the taste also, while it may bring a scent of mild caramel with hints of vanilla in between the sugary texture of virginias, something quite denotes a background that is not likeable, something ashy and astringent in the very bad sense, and as this increases the shadow of the tongue bite increases as well. Strike two.

And as you proceed with this caution that is similar to the one from a vigilante carrying some kind of Doctor Lecter, watching every step from his behaviour, in the end the whole task leaves you unfullfilled, and bored. Strike three.

Sweet killarney is a tobacco i wouldnt recommend at all, for been a caramel tobacco coming from such a reputed trademark as Peterson this is simply very mediocre and even dangerous. If you want to pass my word and try it, be my guest, but remember that we warned you!

Don't be fooled by the nice aroma of the tin - none of it is present in the smoke. The dominant flavor (caramel) is mostly accompanied by vanilla notes. The flavor is more of an insinuation than a definite presence.

Allow some aeration time prior to enjoying for the first time - as mentioned by others, a perceivable excess in humectant additive can lead to hot, steamy, tongue-biting smoke.

I really don't understand the vehemently negative reviews of this blend. I am not sure we are even talking about the same tobacco.

I got this in a trade, so I don't know how old it was. Opening the tin, the aroma was of wonderful yellow Virginia with it's characteristic fruity/citrusy nose, and a little musky sweetness, probably from the Maryland Cavendish. There was a noticeable hint of caramel, but only in the background. Mostly what I smelled was yellow Virginia. The moisture content was perfect. The cut seemed to be a mixture of broken flake and ribbon cut. There was none of the catsup smell that I would've expected from flake Virginia.

It packed nicely and lit easily in my cob. The first few puffs threatened to to bite. so I slowed down on puffing, and the blend settled down quickly. The smoke was silky smooth, mild to medium, and seductivley sweet, like the Girl-Next Door wanting to be a vamp. The taste was mostly wonderful yellow Virginia, and a little musky black cavendish. The caramel taste was there, but way in the background...just enough.The sweetness was not a casing taste, but more just from sweet Virginia and a little Cavendish. It was mostly a great yellow Virginia, so it probably can bite if provoked. The room note was just a clean tobacco aroma with a hint of caramel...very pleasant to innocent bystanders, or so I was told.

The flavor never changed all the way to the bottom, and it all burned to a fine ash with no dottle or gurgling. I only had to relight once (probably due to an error in packing on my part).

I found this to be an outstanding blend for what it is...a sweet, what I would call a semi-aromatic, yellow Virginia blend. I like sweet smokes. If you don't, well, all I can say is read the tin. It says it right on the top, "Sweet Killarney". They do not lie.

I think if you were to add just a pinch or two of Latakia to this, you would have a blend comparable to Dunhill's magnificent The Aperitif (my favorite).

If you like sweet tobaccos, but not overly flavored, then this is a blend you'll really want to try. Treat it gentle and it will give you an enjoyable cruise. If you Hot Rod it, I am sure you will probably crash-and-burn.

I don't hate Peterson and have no idea what is going on here. But I do know this is one tobacco that missed its potential. The tin aroma is wonderful as is the room aroma. However, the taste is bland and the tobacco smokes very hot and gave me the worse case of tongue bite I have ever experienced. I wanted to like this tobacco so much because of the pleasant room aroma, but no matter what pipe I smoked it in - including very large bowls or how slow I smoked it I could not keep it from burning hot and frying my tongue. I just with Peterson would put this flavoring on better leaf.

Many smokers are disappointed with the 'bland' taste of Sweet Killarney, and it's true that the tin aroma is intensive, while the smoke is comparably 'empty'. A very hot smoker, so you better accompany it with something to drink - a milk tea, coffee with cream or a hot chocolate would fit best, or maybe an iced Bailey's or a vanilla milk shake, IMO. Not too much nicotine, so a good morning smoke (as I have it right now, without Bailey's but a cup of cappuccino) without many highs and lows. Selected leafs are of very good quality, the rather dry ribbons I got burn down evenly. Not that many of the mentioned "hand-rubbed VA flakes". Room aroma is more than pleasant - sweet, light, very slight bitter touch (Burley's?). It is maybe worth to mention that the flavouring is probably meant to be like this: giving a little touch and allowing the underlying tobaccos to develop their natural taste. Sweet Killarney is not as sauced as "Connoisseurs Choice" or "Sunset Breeze", it rather competes with "W.O. Larsen No.80" or "Mac Baren's Original Choice" in terms of casing intensity. I would call it a light aromatic, not as Danish as Danske Club or the Truffles, and by far not as sloppily blended as Borkum Riff. It strongly depends on your oral chemistry, I noticed. Give it a chance in different pipes, different times a day. Not Peterson's best (maybe their worst?) but it still gets 3 of 5 stars. Update 2014-01-28 Yeah, this stuff bites. I recently discovered that it tries to emulate some Irish Cream like Bailey's.

I'm keen on most Peterson blends. However, this is probably the rotten apple in the barrel. It's just so...bland. Whilst I have persevered with this tin ( which is a bad sign for me), perseverance has led to disappointment. The aroma is the one strength but this tobacco burns too quickly, and I draw gently on my church warden it still can turn too hot. This is one of the three I wouldn't recommend. The other two are Irish Oak and Sherlock Holmes.

The single worst tobacco since modern day 'Clan' that I've ever tasted.

Never has a tobacco offered so much and delivered so little. There is not much I can add to what other reviewers have said here save to add my criticism. The tobacco smells wonderful when you pop the tin and makes you want to fill a bowl as soon as possible. However, once lit you are given a bitter tasting, hot smoke which bites from the first puff. I rarely suffer from tongue bite but I had to stop smoking this after about 5 minutes, although I tried to persevere it was just really unpleasant. As for that aroma, where did it go?! Avoid.

Typical Peterson's blend. On opening the tin a nice (but unidentifiable) aroma will greet you.

That aroma doesn't hang around for long and after lighting I can detect no aroma whatsoever and can taste absoultely nothing. It doesn't burn particularly well, either. Needs constant relighting.

Thought it needed a little drying out as it was rather moist, but that didn't make any difference.

EDIT: I am marking this down to two stars, it just bites too bad, but it is an interesting and mature candy tobacco, these days I can see this as a 'to mix with' only tobbacco, which would add a desert sweetness to your favorite flake or latakia, would keep the wife happy.

My first ever smoke, I don't puff on this one too much anymore, but I do like caramel, and find this does have some nice earthy undertones for a "candy" tobacco. I feel reviewers are a little hard on this one. People say peterson blends are bland, i would prefare to say 'modern' or popularistic. I like my aro's and my peterson's, I began with them and have returned to them after spending alot of money and effort sampling more 'serious' brands and blends over the past year.

A good desert baccy, with some nice peaty hints in the background, great room note, one for the ladies, yes very sweet but not too sweet, yes it does bite, but what doesn't these days. If you liked toffee instead of hardboils or jellies when you were a kid, you'll like this.

Most recently I mixed this with little Old Dublin (Latakia), sweet caramel with latakia, yes it still bites, but it goes really well together, I don't know if this breaks any cardinal rules, but it works for me.

Very similar (slightly better, maybe) to Sunset Breeze: a bit less sticky to the touch and nauseating to the nose, but the philosophy is identical. There's some black cavendish less, and more broken flake, but what dominates is the topping. As usual, great for those around you (I have got many compliments from colleagues at work!), but very unsatisfying for the smoker: while there is some taste of the casing, it is not as pleasant and sweet as the smell would suggest (and if it were, it would probably be too nauseating). There is some tobacco taste here and there, but I keep getting a much nicer natural, pleasant and fulfilling sweetness from some uncased Virginia flakes! Not to mention about the acrid notes that emerge towards the bottom of the bowl. Bad? Well, no, at least if this is your kind of tobacco. But I can't find any reason to buy another tin of it.

I received a tin of this from my spouse's mother, not because she hates the unflavored tabac I usually puff, but because she was unsure what to purchase for me. After smoking the entire tin, I can only say:great thought but I'll pick my own leaf. Casing is aggresive to say the least and the burley shows up to score your tongue whenever you attempt to pull hard enough to taste anything remotely like tobacco, which may or may not be lurking in this putrid concoction. If I ever have an inclination for a sweet smoke I'll reach for Golden Diced or Vanilla Cream, but not this abbhorent offering.

Now don't go thinking I'm not the sort of guy to give this tobacco a fair chance; I smoked the whole tin of it before making up my mind. Please don't think I don't like aromatics; occasionally I'll still reach for 509 or Cn. Black. And virginias are my staple choice. So with that in mind, let us continue to the review.

The stuff has a good appearance of lemon and bright virginia and an aroma good enough to eat right out of the tin. The charring light gives one the impression that one might like the tobacco.

The charring light lies. This is the most unpredictable, badly behaved tobaccos I have ever smoked. Some whiffs were pure flavoring, others were pure cigarette tobacco. Still others were an unpleasant amalgam of the two. Making matters worse, the flavor lingers in any pipe you smoke it in.

You might very well like this tobacco. Unfortunately, I do not.

Overwhelming Strong Medium Tolerable to Strong

I really like Peterson, I love their Pipes, I love their history, I love their passion for pipe smoking. That being said, I really disliked this tobacco.

Tin - After i purchased it and got it home i realized something a bit odd, the tin label looked like it was slapped on off center. I looked at the reverse side of the tin and that was off center as well. I looked closer at the tin and noticed that it looked like it had been used as a puck in a hockey match. This is just one of those simple things that irritates me, presentation is important. I opened the tin hoping for the promised creme caramel, and what I got was intense spiced chemicals.

Handling - The paper inner liner was saturated with stains and the card cover was warped from moisture. The story doesn't really get any better from here. The tobacco was a goopy mess. I tried to dry it out a bit (1 hour) before loading it in my pipe, but the oils were just too much to over come. It handled badly, smelled strange and looked pretty sad and lifeless.

Smoking - None the less, I put it into my pipe.... I so wish I hadn't. I wont even go into it. It was nasty and chemical tasting, with a foul aroma that even pissed off the dog. I ended up having to cleanse my pipe and ream it to get the funk out. It was awful.

Conclusion - Avoid it, it's not good, it's not friendly, it's just nasty. There are plenty of other great tasting blends from Peterson, this is just one that should be discontinued.

This is a very mild mixture. I don't get much from the underlying tobaccos, but what little there is seems pleasant enough, and I don't get any of the chemical tastes others report. For me, there is a touch of bite, but then I am a steadier puffer than most; I doubt most careful sippers would find even the little I did. The caramel is present but not very strong. Those looking for a mild aromatic should probably give this a try, but I think most others would find this at least slightly unsatisfactory.

This pipe tobacco is for those who have a sweet tooth.

The tin note smells intensely of caramel like a box of toffee with only subtle hints of tobacco scent.

The ribbon cut contains some bits and pieces of broken flake as promised and easily be filled into your bowl. Personaly, I use the Frank method. Lighting usually a single charring and true light, after which the tobacco burns down evenly.

As any Virginia based blend, Sweet Killarney needs to be smoked coolly or it'll loose a lot of its aroma and will bite your tongue. The creamy taste of caramel is quite strong and sweet, and it only weakens towards the end of bowl, but there's still some tangy tobacco flavor in the background. All in all it can be a pleasant smoke.

The room note is sweetish and pleasant, too.

I was quite pleased with this blend. The taste is mild to a low medium, and is of a basic nutty and sweet tobacco with mild whiskey and apricot. The smell is wonderful, as told to me by everyone who walked past me in the shop where I bought it.

Mild and pleasant all around. Might not appeal to someone who is used to heavy flavor bombs. I find smoking this slowly but steadily gives it the most flavor.

Quite honestly? Not one of Peterson's better offerings. The cavendish was barely discernible in my tin. Very much a bias to virginia than most other of their aromatics, and without much flavour other than dull and otherwise a bit unpleasant.

A disappointing experience I won't be repeating. I like a good hit of cavendish so would recommend Connoisseur's Choice or Deluxe Mixture on that basis. I haven't yet tried Gold Blend or Sunset Breeze so can't comment, but they seem to promise a better experience. Will follow up when I've had the pleasure!

This blend is kind of different than your average aromatic. The casing seemed light, even though to me it seemed like it was trying to hard to taste good. The room note is incredible. Anyone who gets a whiff of that will be pleased.

I, however, was not pleased with the taste and the tongue bite from smoking just a little fast. Other Peterson blends do not usually burn, but I had problems with this.

The flavor and smell seemed to be Caramel. Which was very good, but nonetheless, I prefer a good taste, that's long lasting and smooth over smell.

Almost sticky sweet, when I cracked the tin I was greeted with an over abundance of sweet fruit. Drying out helps this tobacco immensely in my opinion. Smoking in my peterson system pipe - there was a slight bite to it, but very faint. Once dry it smoked without much relight.

Initially purchased with the rest of the complete peterson range of tobacco to try out a tin of each for a trial.

As a beginner i was far too forgiving of bad mannered tobacco and i would overlook all too easily the bad aspects, because i thought it was just my own amateurism or i assumed this was a pipeing standard.

Sickly sour chemical topped tongue biter-an absolute uncompromising whore. Seeks every opportunity to bite-what does this?;-is it the topping or the tobacco? Possibly a nice tobacco underneath-the flake bits leaves a nutty cigarish aftertaste,and thats about all after your taste buds have been scortched beyond use.

This was complete shit and i will never ever purchase it again.

One star.

Sweet Killarney stings like a hornet during the first half of a bowl no matter how slow you smolder it. During the last half it gets much easier and more tasty. The flavor is so fantastic that I'll gladly suffer a bit of a bite for it. Definitely not a weed for everyone, especially if you have an issue with tonguebites. I love it! Extra point for a superior wife rating. I got laid just for the room note.

This is one of the first tins I purchased when I started smoking. The tin has been open and aging roughly 5 months or so and is definitely still very moist in the tin. After sitting out to dry for about 30 minutes it stayed lit with minimal relights. Even after the aging, letting it sit out, and smoking slowly, it still seemed to burn pretty wet. The flavor wasn't bad for the first half of the bowl, but seemed to get a bit "chemical" tasting after that. The tin aroma is great, but not one I would purchase again.

I've seen a lot of bad reviews of this blend and I'm very curious as to why. The tin that I bought of this blend was quite wonderful. I loved the creamy caramel flavor. It's almost as flavorful to smoke for me as it smells in the tin. It burns pretty evenly and not nearly as quickly as the Sherlock Holmes blend also by Peterson. Anywhere I've smoked it Sweet Killarney as been well received, even by non-smokers. Personally I would absoultely reccommend this blend, especially to a first time or new smoker since it was the first tin I purchased very early in my smoking and didn't give me any tongue bite or problems with heat. I guess to each his own.

I found this blend to be similar to Blue Note & Solani 131 Red Label in tin aroma & similar in taste, strength, etc., but not a total clone. This one isn't too bitey but one must take care to sip while indulging. Not overly searing to the palate for an aromatic & does provide a slightly sweet flavor.

It leaves no goopy dottle in the bowl but it will leave a ghost in there for the next couple of rounds. I don't smoke many aromatics these days & this review is based only on the merits of an aromatic blend. It didn't propel me into purchasing another tin. Could use a bit of "refinement." Therefore, IMHO, Peterson's Sweet Killarney blend merits two stars.

I'm not certain what passing fancy motivated me to pick up a tin of Sweet Killarney a few months back, but here it is nonetheless.

In the tin, Sweet Killarney looks a mix of black and gold Cavendish with some brighter yellow Virginia leaf. The tin aromas are pretty much as advertised—a pleasant vanilla custard nose with caramelized accents. My notes tell me that I found the first couple of bowls a little short and undefined as far as flavor goes and a little tongue nippy, too. Creme Caramel? Well…maybe. After all, the flavors of Creme Caramel are provided by little more than caramelized sugar and vanilla. The bowl I'm smoking right now is not especially nippy, but it is decidedly short on the intensity of flavor I expect from a good aromatic. And therein lies the problem with this stuff: there are far better similarly flavored aromatics available made from higher quality tobacco and displaying much better smoking characteristics.

To my mind, Sweet Killarney fits into the great bulky middle of the aromatic quality hierarchy. It doesn't approach the excellence of a handful of the genre but is also far from being genuinely unpleasant.

This the second Peterson aromatic I've tried and i didn't enjoy it as much as Golden Blend, thye first. This blend is a vanilla flavored aromatic that smells good enough to eat out of the tin. When smoked, the "caramel" flavor translates into a slight, sweet taste of vanilla that stays throughout the bowl. The underlying tobaccos are nice and smooth virginias and burley.

It's a nice enjoyable smoke but I generally prefer more strenght and flavor. I didn't have any problems with tongue bite.

I bought a tin of this because of the name Peterson. And, I've been looking for that illusive tobacco that is both aromatic and full of taste. I assumed that Peterson could put together a good aromatic. They didn't on this brand. The tobacco packed well and the moisture level was a little high. Even with the high moisture, the stuff lighted up reasonably well. There was never a need for a re-light. The tin aroma matched the smoke aroma. There was the smell of caramel and honey. There was also a fruity essence to the taste. These are the positives. The first thing one notices is that the caramel taste does not transfer to the smoke. The second thing you find is that the taste flattens out when the sugars burn off and there is nothing left but the tobacco. By this time, you note the lack of nicotine. Some may consider this a positive, but I do not. Finally, there is serious tongue-bite. The stuff just gets hotter and hotter! I have mentioned that the taste disappears, but that may be due to the incredible amout of heat. There are some aromatics I enjoy and you do have to know how to enjoy them, but wow! For the price, with a prestigious name, and from a smoker who enjoys aromatics, you should look elsewhere. I have had some Smoker's Pride that behaved better!

I am reviewing this blend based on my memory of 1 tin I v smoked 3 years ago.

The ?Sweet Killarney? doesn?t really mean that this is a sweetened tobacco, so please just make abstraction about the name, On clean palate (specially in the first morning pipe) you will notice clearly the cream caramel on the first half bowl, then it will disappear giving place to the tobacco taste, and its good tobacco, not very topped and not very sweet, just well balanced.

I will buy another tin to keep it around for now and then.

Every now and then I like to add an aromatic to my line-up as a change of pace from my usual rotation of Balkans/English and matured Virginias. And while most aromatics don't appeal to me, this one works, delivering real tobacco flavor without being overly sweet (despite the name) and with an aroma (at least for the smoker) that is rich with vanilla and caramel overtones.

Nothing objectionable here -- it's dry and flavorful -- but also nothing that will likely knock the socks off die-hard aromatic fans. Although the flavor does vary down the bowl, there's no great complexity to explore. Just an enjoyable smoke.

I'd especially recommend this one to smokers who enjoy MacBaren's Vanilla Creme or Dunhill's A21000, vanilla blends that share similarities with Sweet Killarney but which burn hotter and with a tendency to bite, at least for me.

UPDATE: For whatever reason -- maybe I'm just not an aromatic fan at all -- I ended up tosssing much of this tin after it sat around for months without being smoked. While initially pleasant, there just wasn't enough on offer here to keep me interested.

Well, to start our I have been back to smoking a pipe for about a year now. I have come to enjoy Virginia's, VaPer's and some Dunhill and GL Pease, English blends. So this is a new avenue for a change of pace. So far I find it to be a bit moist out of the tin a few moments of drying seem to work better. The aroma has a very carmel like scent to it, and to date it has not bit, although I can see how it can get away from you and deliver a big hurt to your tongue. It is a pleasant smoke for a change up might try mixing it with something but not sure what yet. Looking forward to finishing the tin and possibly giving an update later on. As they say, "Smoke in Peace!"

Tin aroma is wonderful, no doubt. I got awfully excited when I smelled it; I'm not all that much of an aromatic smoker, but it smelled almost edible.

Smoking was another story. I really had to fight to keep this stuff from getting too hot, and my tongue is still sore from the bite. I never could get it cool enough to actually get the complex flavors out of it; it generally either was harsh, or out. Different packing methods didn't seem to change it much; it just was a harsher smoke than I cared for.

The room note wasn't at all what I expected. I at least hoped for some of the casing to come out in the room, but no dice. It ended up having a strong, complex odor that actually became kind of cigar-like after a little while.

I was able to finish off the tin without tossing it, but I doubt I'll be buying it again. Others might have better luck; my tongue wasn't impressed.

I received a few compliments from non-smokers and smokers alike. I was surprised to find that this one didn't bite like others I have tried. This is one I imagine I will rotate for a long time. I do imagine that if you smoked it everyday, it would get a little boring. Nice after a meal in the evening.

I typically only smoke this around the general public due to the pleasant room aroma. It is definitely caramel, caramel, caramel!!! It, however has quality leaf underneath the casing that can satify on occassion. I have never found it to be consistent regardless of the pipe used or tin vintage. Sometimes the casing is overwhelming and at othertimes the leaf sings through. One warning though, you have to smoke it slowly or otherwise you will get tongue-bite. This one I only recommend for something different or a St. Patrick's Day celebration

This is indeed and unusal one. A fan of aromatics, this one left me confused. I am quite fond of Old Dublin as well as most of the Mac Baren line. Knowing what to expect from Peterson, I did not expect a candied taste like I get from some of the really cheap dime-store brands that taste like burning tires off a cherry truck.

That being said, the tin aroma of this blend almost knocked me over and I was close to tossing the the lot untried. Being Peterson however, I gave it a try, and I'm glad I did! After the first bowl I wasn't about to review it until I had finished the entire tin.

This one is an aquired taste, I believe. Enjoyable and considering the tin aroma, not overly sweet, this one surprises with its lovely taste and aroma. This is recommended as a good after-dinner smoke. Although for me it takes a backseat to some other more subtly topped blends.
