This marvellous blend of tobaccos was specially selected for connoisseurs with high expectations.

Using two kinds of black cavendish, one sweet and fresh and the other with a hint of chocolate are blended together with brown cavendish and three different Virginias, rounded off with a hint of exclusive, hand cut Virginia and burley flake. The aroma of this mixture is delicate, sweet and creamy and results in a fragrance of coffee, chocolate and caramel.

This is a great full-bodied aromatic, probably the best I've ever smoked. It lit and smoked easily with wonderful, creamy flavors throughout the bowl. The chocolate flavor is subtle but only gets tastier throughout the bowl. This is a great tobacco.

This is a very pleasant tobacco. It is perfect for a desert after a good lunch/dinner. Works excellent with a 5 o'clock cup of tea :) Overall, I would say 3 out of 4

An other superb mixture from Peterson. Caramel and coffe when opening the tin. The chocolate, coffee and caramel aromas mix perfectly with the tobacco. A first class aromatic which stays aromatic during the smoke (not all aromatics achieve that) without the impression of smoking a candy shop.

Highly recommended therefore. For those who may ask about the design of the tin which could look as a gothic metaphora of old signs (typically Irish isn't it!!)or old traditions: they will discover that the desing is inspired by the hallmarks of the sterling silver ring on the pipes from Peterson!

I've enjoyed each year that Peterson's comes out with a special edition and I always buy at least one on their reputation alone. Some have been my favorite unfortunately but they are only around for limited time so when I opened this tin I did feel the 'surprise'. It smelled good but good in the sense of 'I've been here before" sort of way only with the mark up of being a Reserve edition. The one thing I have noticed that has displeased me is the room note. While smoking it seems to be mild and pleasant but just by leaving the room and re-entering I am overwhelmed by cigarette smoke effect. Having now finished one tin my whole home smells stale from it. I'm sorry to bring such a dampened report but I'll still try other blends they put out in the future.

Another hit from Peterson! A wonderful blend of tobaccos paired heavenly with a great casing. The blend takes a lighting wonderfully and burns nice and even. It doesn't require too many relights and burns nice and cool. The caramel, chocolate, and coffee flavors transfer nicely into the smoke leaving also a very pleasant room note. It's a great smoke that can be enjoyed any time, but I have to say it makes a great early morning smoke.
