Peterson Old Dublin

(3.29)
A supreme style of pipe tobacco based on the renowned cool smoky aroma of Cyprus Latakia. To perfect this delightful tobacco there are selected golden Virginias with aromatic Black Cavendish and sweet Greek grades added to satisfy the fastidious pipe smoker.
Notes: Albeit no flavoring is mentioned in the description, the additives list reveals 3.1 grams of added flavoring to 100 grams of tobacco.

This is Peterson's best blend IMO. The excellent black cavendish gives this run of the mill Scottish blend a nice rich boost. The flavoring, although very subtle, almost remided me of the way a pumpkin spice candle smells. The Latakia is not as heavy as some blends, but definitely makes its presence known. I enjoyed this with a pint of Beamish Stout, and felt very Irish indeed! With no bite and no Latakia slap in the face, I think this would be a good beginner's introduction to Scottish blends.

I find the mix of reviews on this quite wonderful. While I enjoy some heavy Latakia once and awhile, OD is rather clean,thanks to the Virgina and Basma in it. There is enough Latakia to give you the impression that Seamus just tossed another lump of peat on the fire, but not enough to drive you out of the house. One of the reviewers described this as middle-of-the-road. Sometimes the middle is a good place to be, and OD is solidly in the middle. It packs well in just about any pipe you put it into. It tamps just fine, not too wet, burns fairly cool, and seems to get better in the tin as time goes by. When you can't decide exactly what to take to work with you, or on a trip, Old Dublin is a good travelling companion - neither offensive nor meek.

For those who prefer strong English mixtures like Durbar, this might not be your cup of tea. However, Durbar is my favorite English and I must say the Old Dublin can hold its own.

The flavor is very complex, but still subtle because, unlike many "complex" tobaccos, this isn't overwhelmed with latakia. I couldn't tell you for sure, but I'd guess 30% latakia on this mixture. The orientals, Basma, and Cavendish are all noticeable in this smoke, but do not overpower the mixture with an overpowering sweetness. There are in the background and, though probably low in percentage, the smokiness of the latakia is predominant. There is a delicate harmony between the wide variety of leaves in this tobacco.

I don't usually go for Peterson tobaccos (the pipes are, of course, a different story), but I must say that every English smoker must have at least one tin of Old Dublin around. It's well made, seems to be aged wonderfully in the tin, and is an ideal first smoke.

Recommended. Especially to new smokers.
