Scot?s Heather is good, honest, almost simple smoking with a slight edge of sophistication. It is a Detroit union boss who has made good in life but still remembers his working class roots. It has more to offer than the usual burley & black cavendish blend, but is still willing to punch you in the kisser if you get out of line.

I shall deviate from metaphor and venture into the realm of simile: Scot?s Heather is like a fine Assam tea that has had milk and brown sugar added. It has a multi-layered bitterness and maltiness with the addition of simple sweetness that manages to cut back on what some smokers imagine is a harsh edge.

It also packs and burns very well with nary a bite. All in all, this is a blend that manages to make Cornell & Diehl?s often overpowering rough cut burley rather a nice companion.

After smoking this blend in numerous pipes, I have to admit... I do not get it! I am not sure what I am smoking here. This is not an aromatic, the black Cavendish is unsweetened, or drowned out by the Perique. The burly is harsh and uneventful, and the Perique WOW! This blend is absolutely unbalanced and unrefined. I am without words to describe this stuff. The only thing this blend is good for is a swift kick in the butt.

Scot's Heather is another variation in C&D's fine tradition of high class burley blends. The initial presentation is one of coarsely cut and somewhat chunky medium brown burleys with ribbons of dark black cavendish and perique. My sample arrived at just the right moisture content. On first match there is an initial slightly bitter taste that quickly dissipates as the burn settles in and gives over to a smooth, mild, nutty flavor. As the bowl progresses toward the halfway point, the flavor deepens as the seasoning effect of the black cavendish and perique take hold, for a slight sweetness, and a flavor that hints at ligero cigar leaf and cocoa. The burn is fairly dry, with no end bowl bitterness.

I found no disappointments here whatever. A great choice for a good, everyday tobacco, anywhere, anytime. It's difficult to pick a favorite from among these classic burley blends, but for comparison purposes, I give Scot's Heather a slight edge over Haunted Bookshop. I will certainly be buying this blend again.

My notes on this one simply say " Burley and cavendish overpower the perique ." This tobacco smokes well and would be suited for the burley and cavendish smoker who wanted a slight change of pace . If you are looking for a blend to satisfy your perique cravings I'd suggest Bayou Nights instead .
