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.

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.
