I have to say that I hesitated a bit before buying this, because my only previous experience with a coffee-scented blend was, about three decades ago, with Scandinavik Coffee, which was horrible; nevertheless I was very glad to see again on the tobacconist's shelves a Peterson Special Edition, after the known issues. So I buyed it: it consists of an elegant box, with inside a silver foil bag, ermetically closed, which reminds me of a box of chocolates. Once opened the bag, you finally find the tobacco and at the same time a beautiful aroma of coffee reaches your nose. Honestly my first impulse was to eat it, however I filled my pipe and lit it. The prevalent aroma is indeed of coffee, but you can taste also chocolate in a lesser way. All in all the topping is quite strong, but not overwhelmingly so, you will likely taste the tobacco only in the background and a little more in the last quarter of the bowl, when the topping fades out a little, but the quality of the leaf is good. In conclusion, it's an aromatic different from many (fruity) others and I like it, so I'll recommend it to you.
