Gettysburg pipe tobacco is a delightful mixture of Burleys and Virginias with a smooth, subtle peach undertone. With an almost oily sheen to each ribbon this tobacco could command a price 3 times what P&C offers it at.

Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

On a seemingly never ending search for a fruity aromatic tobacco that doesn't bite like a pit bull I ran across Brigadier Black Gettysburg. I found what I was looking for, upon opening the tin, I was met with a pleasant, but not overbearing peach scent. Once lit, it required minimal relights, and filled the room with a mild peach scent. The flavoring did not completely over take the tobacco as seems to happen with this blends and I notice very little bite.

Tin note is a heavy, candied peach scent akin to peach schnapps. Not unpleasantly sweet, but not quite what a fresh peach would or should smell like. A dry pull of the pipe after packing gave a really pleasant candy peach flavor.

I'm a Frank Method advocate, and after packing this tobacco it took 5-6 charring lights before it started to burn on its own. This is not surprising as I didn't allow the tobacco to dry out of the tin, and it's somewhat moist on opening. Once burning, though.. wow. A slow, even cadence with this tobacco gave me loads of walnut, peach, honey-sweet smoke. I didn't push this tobacco, but even on the few relights I didn't detect any tingle of a promised tongue bite.

Room note is of a baking spiced peach cobbler. Delicious stuff.

If you like aromatics, you will probably like this tobacco. If not, why are you reading this review? The peach flavor clearly comes through, although it fades a bit by the end of the bowl. Hard to light and keep lit when first opened, but a few hours of drying and that problem disappears. Little, if any tongue bite.

Great tin note, good room note. A solid aromatic.
