Peterson 3 Years Cask Aged English Mixture

Different Virginia grades are aged in old oak barrels for at least three years together with a tiny portion of Black Cavendish and a noticeable portion of Louisiana Perique. This makes it a thoroughly full-bodied, mildly spicy blend, which is given further depth of taste by flavoring with whiskey from the Danish distillery Braunstein.

Very pleasant smoke and elegant tobacco with round flavors. The Perique makes its distinction from Virginias, it has also some Black Cavendish, and the whiskey flavors contribute to the blend. The moisture of the mixture is fine and well-balanced. I miss the latakia/orientals in the blend, due to the name "English mixture". However, you can obtain a nice slow smoke without any bite at all.

There seems to be a lot of confusion going around due to the name ”English Mixture” being used loosely by manufacturers. This is NOT an English blend but it is a fine Va/Per. I am not sure why the name was chosen, but I will not judge this blend based on that.

I smoked two nice bowls of this in my Tsuge tasting pipe today, and I am ready to give my two cents. The tin note is sweet grassy Virginia with the faint smell of whiskey, and it’s ready to smoke straight from the tin — not overly wet or dry.

The smoke offers a lot of perique, far more than I expected. That spiciness pairs well with the subtle cask note. I didn’t expect to get any of that oak wood flavour, but it does come through just enough to give a whiskey characteristic to this blend. There is a slight sweetness from the small portion of Cavendish that helps bring forward the whiskey flavouring. Overall, this does not feel like an aromatic whatsoever. It’s a Va/Per with subtle whiskey notes.

Vitamin N sits at a comfortable medium with this blend. A bowl of this satisfies but doesn’t overwhelm. There are no rough edges, and this is easily an all day smoke. Honestly, I will have to be careful not to smoke this jar too fast, because I really really enjoyed those two bowls I smoked today.

The last thing I must report is that the room note is surprising pleasant considering how much perique I get from this blend. I had no complaints from the lady about this one despite the smell lingering in the house when she got home, and I do often receive complaints.

This is a great blend, and I am going to try to order more if available. Easily a 4/4 and I can see this becoming one of my favourites.

This is one of the first mixes I bought - after recently catching up with pipe smoking .. long brake of 20 years almost. Ok, straight to the tobacco:

It is a mix of Virginia, Black Cavendish and Lousiana perique. At the opening, the tin smells nicely of something slightly fruity and whiskey. The smoke is earthy, nutty. Woody. Smokes well, dense, pleasant with no dottle and no residues (at least not often). I smoked this mix regularly for several months and it did not disappoint me one single time. Towards the end of the tin it got a bit dry and perhaps slightly bitter, but that could be due to what I added to revive it (some few drops of grappa). Overall a good impression. I would get it again, once I finish all the cans I have to try still...

I usually do not like aromatics but I make an exception for this one (as well as the R&M). My favorites are usually burleys and oriental/balkan mixes. Somehow the earthy/woody aromas of this mix are of my liking and make this mix a nice way to alternate between burleys and latakias without missing my favorite falvors.
