Mild to Medium Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

Full disclosure: I am the co-creator of this blend. The star attraction is the deeply rich, mildly creamy peanut butter topping. The nutty, earthy, woody, toasty white burley has a very mild effect. The noticeable aspects of the Virginia and burley cavendish are light floral, nutty, earthy, woody, honey accents. The Virginia faintly offers grass, tart and tangy citrus, grass, bread, and sugar. The strength is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. The taste is just short of the medium threshold. The nic-hit is a notch past the mild mark. Won’t bite or get harsh. Has a few very light rough notes. The blend is a little moist, but I saw no need to dry it. Burns cool and clean at a slightly slow pace with a very consistent sweetness that extends to the pleasantly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl. Requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Has an attractive room note. Can be an all day smoke. Four stars.

Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

Something different. First few puffs were more butter than peanut. Then the nut mildly appeared. Not bad alone, if aromatics is your thing. Excellent with Wilke's Chocolate mixed in, with a sprinkling of burley. Even better with some of Wilke's Englishes mixed in. To each his own. I think I like.

The tobacco is a mix of long and chopped medium ribbon. There are a few torn bits in the there. It was a little on the moist side of ideal for me, and I smoked it as delivered. I was careful not to pack it too tightly.

Initially I tried this in a GBD pot that "smokes everything well." It was an unusual flavor in a pipe tobacco, and it is hard to describe. Initially I got the flavor of movie theater popcorn, and by the time I was halfway into the bowl, it transitioned to an over-roasted peanut. It was slightly sweet, and there was a fairly solid mild burley foundation to all this. This burley had just the hint of a bitter edge when puffed and a earthy flavor in general. I then tried this in a Grabow pot, and got more of a peanut butter flavor with the same burley foundation.

I often find that black cavendish gives a blend a musty flavor I don't like. This blend did not have that signature taste, and the cavendish may been contributed to the sweet.

It burned well, and if anything seemed to have burned a little slow for me. It was a pleasant smoke.

If you are looking for a quality semi-aro that provides an interesting flavor with a tobacco flavored base, you should give this a try. It was good.

As a newbie pipe smoker this tobacco is great. Very pleasant aromatics with nice toasted peanut notes. Burn is excellent as well. Highly recommended. Will keep this one stocked.

First off I smoke Aro’s rarely. However, this blend may change that. This peanut butter blend is great to relax with. The room note is amazing. It reminds me of peanut butter cream candy my Grandmother used to make. I pushed this Aro I bit on purpose, no tongue bite at all. This is a great relaxing smoke and I can see myself enjoying it often. If your looking for a change of pace you just found it!!

Mild Extra Strong Overwhelming Pleasant

Quality pipe tobacco, heavily flavored with whatever was used to give it a very natural peanut butter scent and taste. Natural but perhaps overdone, it's topping scent is matched in my experience, as far as strength goes, only by the old Rattray's Exotic Orange. Like the latter, its scent will drown out that of any other tobacco in your storage area. Couldn't really detect any recognizeable tobacco flavor. I found this off-putting, but so what? You may like it.

I was really skeptical about this.. I mean c’mon peanut butter! Well.. boy was I wrong. In an, um nutshell, this smells great, tastes great and the creamy nutty flavor pleasantly stays with you. Works morning, noon or night. A definite must in your rotation.

That is way too much peanut butter said no one. Either you love it or there is something wrong with you. Chunky or smooth? No worries, a pipeful of Wilke Pipe Tobacco’s Peanut Butter captures the edible toothsomeness of a Jif, Peter Pan, or Annette Funicello’s favorite brand Skippy. This original aromatic blend from Wilke combines assorted Cavendish, modest Burley, and flue-cured Virginia varietals emersed in a mingle of pure peanut butter flavoring and bean (not sure what that is actually).

Extensively shaggy and long thin cut ribbons showing a mask of golden chestnut, copper, deep taupe, and fermented ebon-brown morsels. Carrying a bit of tackiness to the feel, its best to let this one set-up for a duration to push out a small degree of the excess moisture. The quality of tobaccos used and the preparation itself look Wilke impressive, nonetheless.

Even within the sealed pouch the strong essence of this mixture escapes freely permeating the immediate surroundings This standard aroma is remarkably potent and resilient in presence. A mildly sweet flurry of robust peanut springs forward, buttered, and oily, as it combines with some dense piquant sharpened spice. Trace hints of muted vanilla, tart grass, and contained woodiness fill out the balance of the nose.

This blend is rather straight-forward and simplistic in the essential taste profile. The fundamental and true to form peanut butter note circulates boldly forward with a richly robust, creamy, and mildly sweet general demeanor. There is an interesting dash of saltiness and distance zest, almost pepper-like, seasoning that provides a complementing influence on the base topping, especially with the inception. At first light this latter sharp accent is very pronounced morphing into a rougher sweetness (maybe vanilla bean?) The magnitude of the nutty persona, as I said, is very proud initially, however the starkness quickly tapers down to an ideal savory intensity. No evidence of beans of any type was noted in the registration, go figure?

Furthermore, a passive and sweet tone of brown sugared/honey nutwood originating from the constituent Burley combines with a bit of Virginian colorfully floral grass-hay to form the bottom native characterization. The Virginia also showed inklings of a bit of lemony bread highlight to enliven the affair. Swirling in a low key, the Cavendish briefly declares its muted self with some native sugary earthiness on the whole. In sum, these principal flavorings hold their concentration for the entire smoking session. Overall, Peanut Butter present a relaxing mild strength/mild-medium pleasurable endeavor.

A very polite blueish cloud on meaty smoke lays witness with the smoking. The aroma imparted brings a mild sweet and softened musing of distinguishable peanut fragrance bundled with buttery native spice. The tobaccos achieve a rather graduated and moderately even burn with smooth consistency felt on the palate. I do however recommend slow sipping or the mix can/will get too stoked thereby losing some of the splendor of its tasteful presentation.

Personally, I did find that successive bowls of Peanut Butter was too much of a good thing but when pulled one out for a single occasion, it was definitely a pleasing winner. Alternatively mix it with say a Country Squire’s Blue Ribbon, which tenders a blackberry forward experience, an then you would be set for an additional PBJ like treat. Perhaps even paired with a Sutliff’s Chocolate Truffle would provide a reasonable stab a Rees cup, now there is more food for thought. 3.4 Pipes
