Topped with a hint of delicate black Cavendish and nutty Burley matched with expressive flavours of honey, plum and cinnamon. The result is a divine tobacco created on a base of sun drenched mature Virginias combined with different cuts to guarantee a taste of complete harmony.

This is Christmas before Christmas! Mainly plum cake to my buds, can't find cinammon and honey is very light. But plum is really present, to be more specific it tends towards the taste of a german christmas cake named stollen or christstollen, add to it black cherry notes fading to anise and you got the spirit. Nutiness appears by midbowl as well. Could eat it at tin overture! Really faithful to Christmas scents and aromas. An exquisite dessert for ARO lovers ( and I am!). The leaf employed is top quality as well. Highly recommended

What can I say. Not bad.

The tin note is that of plum and honey. It provides a plesent plum and cinimin taste. And the room note is agin that of plum.

This is a plesent smoke that like many Aros requires time and patience to enjoy to avoid tongue bite or hot pipe. But well worth the time.

Mild to Medium Medium to Strong Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

This was an enjoyable aromatic. I really like Peterson aros, so I was not too surprised to have enjoyed this one. The aroma really does scream Christmas, which makes it a real treat for the holidays to put you in the mood.

I have not tried any of the other years' releases under the same name, so I am not sure if this is the same topping or not. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for that holiday aro to put them in the mood, but I would not say it is my favorite aro by a long shot.

Thus, three aromatic stars for this one.

Have been smoking two tins of this Tobacco and must admit it's certainly one of the best Christmas editions ever. Very mild and fruity smoke with a very complex mix of various changing flavors through the whole smoke. The room note is quit well accepted by my wife and daughter which tell's a lot ! Onmy fall back is the wet smoke at the end of the pipe. I think the reason is the Tobacco is quiet wet straight out of the tin. I would like that Peterson would keep this as a regular Tobacco, it would certainly the become a daily threat.

Mild Medium Full Very Pleasant

Christmas in July for me. As I had too many tins open and conscientiously taking a brake from aromatic blends this had to wait. Now that I opened this, I'm so glad I finally got around to it. Tin note is pleasant to say the least. I can't pick out any individual flavors but the whole aroma is one of a sweet Christmas season desert. Packs nicely in the bowl with no pre drying required from my tin. The leaf is a beautiful mixture of fine quality. Very pleasing colors to the eye. The charring light was a blast of sweet tastes to awaken the taste buds. The first portion of the bowl is certainly plum up front. Cinnamon would dance in and out but only mildly. About mid bowl the plum taste is mixed in with a beautiful mild citrus. A creamy honey like under tone mixes in towards the bottom end and mellows everything out until the the last bit is gone.

An aro with no tongue bite. No matter how hard I try!

Typical Peterson special mixture, high quality tobacco... This time, they NAILED the aromas and flavours. I love the cinnamon honey and I feel anutty flavour, nothing too fruity. A nice and cool smoke!

The only drawback of this baccy is, that it lacks body and a little more power. It is a very well made aromatic with an excellent room note. It tastes nice and balanced and smokes well, but after a bowl, I already crave another. Aromatic lovers should try it, as long as it is available. It has surprised many natural tobacco smokers in a good way.

I was really excited to try this but once again like Christmas ale I leave disappointed.

While the smell of the baccy is a wonderful blend of sweet spices, dried fruit and a biscuit note once lit I find it really fails to deliver on those flavours in any meaningful way.

I find the smoke to be quite wishy washy with it's flavour, I can pick out some plum and dried fruit notes with warm spices but I was really hoping for something more in your face.

I think I will give it a few days without smoking anything and then have another bowl of this just to see if I have shot my pallet.

A real christmass blend, u really cant be sure at any point about flavoring, any taste is like a little surprise. I tasted a delightful sweet flavor at my first bowl of this tobacco, which contains honey and cinnamon. After that, noticed only plum and anise for 2 bowls. Sometimes sweet and sometimes sour, a perfect unstability.

One thing is sure, it leaves an anise taste after smoke.

Edit after fourth bowl: it is a present plum and anise flavour. I am not sure how I get that sweet taste at my first bowl. Still recommended but dont wait sweet flavor.
