Hoping for a replacement for my beloved Dunhill EMP prior to Peterson beginning to blend it, I went in search of a suitable replacement and found Sutliff's EMP Match. Let's just say it's a gift to all pipe smokers that Peterson took up the EMP mantle because Sutliff's "Match", to me, is anything but. The tobacco arrived feeling wet and greasy and presented with an overly sweet and unremarkable aroma. A far cry from the intriguing interplay of aromas found in the genuine article. Heavily cased, I attempted to get this tobacco into smokable form by allowing it to dry... for a few hours... but alas, the greasy wetness persisted. Upon lighting, the tongue bite was severe regardless of how gently I inhaled and the flavor was again both bland and overly sweet at once. I found this blend difficult to keep lit regardless of whether I packed tight, loose, or somewhere in between and with the harshness on the back of my palate, the severe bite on the tongue, and pedestrian flavor -- I found myself wondering why I kept trying at all. Although decidedly of different make up, the blend this most reminded me of was a bag of Blender's Gold Toasted Cavendish (another Sutliff product, I believe) I picked up from Walgreens six or seven years ago and that to this day still feels greasy. Wet, greasy, artificially sweet, and impressively boring are the words I'd use to describe both of these tobaccos. Happy ending? Indeed. As I write this, there is a box containing four tins of Peterson's EMP on my dining room table hopefully waiting to take the place of Dunhill's masterful creation. Sutliff's EMP Match? For me, two thumbs down.
