Christmas 2019 is celebrated with a fine blend of Virginia tobaccos and toasted burley. As usual the Christmas blend is aromatic this year with hints of of citrus & rum, the smell is incredible!

Peterson - Christmas Blend 2019.

A nice smoke, however it would be easier to get into Fort Knox than this; the cellophane pouch has a seal so strong I sprayed tobacco everywhere opening it!

The blend includes some rather coarse pieces and a few small broken flakes. I think the title Mixture would be better suited. It smells lemony and alcohol-sharp, with a moisture quantity which enables imminent smoking.

The toasty, dry, Burley gives more flavour than the Virginias. I get a subtle hay like quality, but not a blast of sharp freshness. The citrus has more weight than the rum, but the two collaborate together well, forming a vibrant flavour; a little different to the usual heavy, gloopy, Christmas aromatics. The burn from it's impeccable, and although quite strongly flavoured I get no bite.

Nicotine: a jot below medium. Room-note: nice.

Christmas 2019? A nice smoke, but not the best of Peterson's seasonal blends! But, nevertheless, worth a recommendation:

Three stars.

Comes in a sealed foil pouch inside the tin. I find the tobacco is more a mix of a fine broken flake & ribbon. Consistency is perfect - not too moist.

* Pouch note: Beautiful - sweet & fruity, aroma of honey -butter - marzipan - cherry - orange/tangerine..

* Flavour is med-mild, primarily Virgina-Burley, with slight cherry & orange/tangerine with honey. Like a fruit punch drink, but never overpowers the flavour of the tobacco, and a hint of background spiciness that teases the tongue.

Overall, a very nice mild cool smoke.
