Peterson - St. Patrick's Day 2017.

I was initially impressed, when I opened the tin the moistness was impeccable. It didn't look like the usual vanilla aromatic, it's not mainly black Cavendish with only a sprinkling of the others. Actually, the black Cav' accounts for the smallest amount of the blend, it's the Burley and Virginia that form the bulk of it. There's a fair few larger leaf like pieces in the tin, amongst a blend that's mainly composed of coarse ribbons.

My ongoing thought when smoking this is one of how different to most vanilla blends it is. For starters, the Burley gives the majority of the natural flavour, with support from the Virginia, instead of the sticky black Cav' hogging all the room. The vanilla is noticeable, but not gloopy; at all. The lighter flavour of the Burley/Virginia make this slightly more 'refreshing' than the usual vanilla aro's! I don't get any bite from the smoke but I would like it to be cooler; this reduces the rating.

The nicotine's mild to medium and the room-note's quite nice.

This isn't bad, but I want more weight in my vanilla blends!

Somewhat recommended.
