Here is a blend that combines the rich English flavors of Latakia and fire-cured Virginia, plus a Burley base for coolness. It's smooth and spicy with a slight sweet tang.

The toasted, nutty, earthy, molasses sweet burley is the star component. The fire cured Virginia is lightly grassy and floral with a little earth and a bit of citrus as a supporting player. Playing in the background is the musty, smokey, woody sweet Cyprian latakia. The topping seems to be a very mild application of coumarin, anise, and something floral. Has a mild to medium nic-hit, Well blended, you’ll notice every nuance in every puff. Burns at a moderate rate, cool, clean, smooth with a slight creaminess and very consistent flavor from start to finish. Won’t bite or get harsh. Requires few relights and leaves virtually no moisture in the bowl. Has a pleasant after taste though the room note isn’t a real crowd pleaser. Closer to medium than it is to mild in strength and taste, it’s an all day American English.

Peretti’s of Boston IMHO has some of America’s top Burley tobaccos and D-9575 is a Burley lover’s English Blend. D-9575 arrives looking typical of many Peretti blends with a chopped ribbon appearance, and a somewhat smoky, but Burley forward pouch scent. With age it smells sweet and musty. D-9575 burns slightly sweet and smoky too. But make no mistake; the Burley is the star of this show. D-9575 smooth’s out nicely with age and the Virginias pick up in sweetness a bit. I find it a little rough around the edges when new, but I am not a daily Burley smoker so your experience may be different. Personally for my taste, this is a two star blend, but it wouldn’t be fair to rate it that way. For its genre, D-9575 is one of those blends that is a really well-made that lovers of Burley, and/or Burley forward English blends will find far better than I do.

I was most surprised to discover that I had never reviewed this exceptional blend before now; I first smoked it more than six months ago.

This is just plain good! It is what an "American English" was in days of yore...only better for its current rarity. It had its competition, and perhaps its betters, once upon a time...but no longer. This reminds me of Peretti's Cuban Mixture, though milder and more attuned to today's tastes.

I am not one to dissect--or vivesect--a tobacco blend: I am perfectly content to accept the manufacturer's description of its ingredients. In this case, 9575 does not disappoint.

There is Burley, adding its nutty earthiness...and Virginia adding a bit of its sweetness...and Latakia's inimitable qualities. But none take-over the delicate balance of this blend from top to bottom. "Nuance" be damned! This is just a superior smoke from first to last puff.

No bite, no gurgle, no dottle. There were ONCE, perhaps, better "American English" blends...but no more.

This is "The Top" IMHO

L.J. Peretti's D-9575 is a cousin to D-7485, as both contain a burley component, but where D-7485 has a predominately Burley base, with a lower level of Virginia and an incense flavor at times. D-9575 has a good amount of Virginia with the Burley and a smokier flavor closer to standard English blends, as the Latakia comes more to the front on this blend. D-9575 is an easy blend to smoke and highly recommended.

I knew nothing of the L. J. Peretti Company until I read the reviews of this fine tobacconist's blends on tobaccoreviews It has certainly been a pleasurable discovery.

Blend 9575 is as straight forward and honest as a pipe tobacco can get. It packs with ease and has a perfect moisture content. Blend 9575 burns nice and cool, you get a fair nicotine hit about mid bowl. The Va's and the Latikia give this blend a fair bit of body and charater but don't over power the smooth burleys. I will definitely add this to my morning baccy rotation. Can't wait to try the other five blends that came with this order!

This is a mild to medium American English blend that I found similar to Peretti?s D-7485. It burns cool and has a satisfying sweetness. The burley and VA hold a whip to the Latakia and keep it in the background. It is a solid and straightforward smoke from beginning to end. As I noted with blend D-7485, if you want more body and strength, this blend will not do it for you.

A cigarette is to be smoked. A cigar is to be enjoyed. A pipe is to be savored.

I rate this tobacco 8.6 out of 10.

This blend is a classic. Smooth Burley, with hints of hay,green wood, and of course campfire smoke. A great outdoor smoke, this burns cool and evenly all the way to the end. This is not a complex blend. But it is satisfying, with a certain rustic charm. If you are fond of the American-English genre, this is a winner. Best in a large bore pipe.

Having started my pipe smoking career off by smoking my father's burley blends, (Half an Half, Heine's Blend, etc,.), and then switching over to English Blends, this is one of my favorites. This is a all-day blend with just the right amount of sweetness that does not become sickly.

Opening the tin, one finds a press-packaged, full natural tobacco scent that delights, and never overpowers. The color is brownish with black specks and blond overtones throughout.

The flavor is slightly sweet, with the Virginia and Burley carrying the main taste load. The Latakia is present, but in more of a condiment role than traditional English Blends.

It packs and lights easily, I seldom need a re-light. As you progress down the bowl, the taste maintains itself rather steadily, probably due in large part to the burley base.

I consider this blend a True American/English.
