I received this blend for free as a Christmas Gift alongside one of the new Peterson Short pipes. It's a broken flake, the first of these I've ever had the joy of smoking. I'm partial to VaPer and perique heavy English blends. I found it packed nicely into the Peterson's small bowl and smoked fairly evenly after a few attempts at lighting. The Virginias were rich and creamy with the added sweetness of the cavendish really pairing nicely with the smoky perique. I'm a big fan of this and I hope they release it next year. I will note that I did get a bit of tongue bite, which I typically only get from cavendish blends, but fairly mildly. On the whole, I would suggest this tobacco for those who need something nice for a cold-weather treat. I find it pairs well with black tea.
