I received a tin of this from Smokingpipes.com with the purchase of a Petersen during their sale. I liked it enough to pick up more when they offered it after the holidays for sale.
Typical C&D style broken flakes. Tin note def has the perique in it along with some nuttiness. Tobacco is good quality and the moisture was a little higher than some of their blends, but manageable.
I broke the flakes up and loaded one of my Fat Author Bones pipes. It took a little effort to get a good charring (needs to dry a little bit), but then it was easy to keep lit during the pipe.
Flavor was nutty (burleys), sweet (VAs) and a little spicy (periques). All three flavors continued throughout the pipe from start to finish and really complimented each other.
The tobacco reminds me of another CD blend or two, but I can't think which ones of the top of my head.
I'm aging the ones I picked up after the holidays and plan on having one during each Holiday season going foward. I'll update the review if the age makes a big difference.
