Peterson Special Reserve 2015

Peterson's Special Reserve 2015 is this year's expertly blended edition in the long line of yearly reserve tobaccos from Peterson. To mark their 150 year anniversary they have released this luxury blend that offers ripe, loose cut Virginias, burley and mellow sweet cavendish. The flavours of these superior tobaccos come through naturally and are enhanced by the light addition of casing and topping, which is elegantly sweet and fruity. The pleasant room note expounds quality tobacco that is sweet and light. The Peterson Special Reserve 2015 is loose cut and alluring to the eye. Chunky golden brown ribbon laid upon russet brown, amidst bister, taupe and black. Upon opening the tin the aromas of sweet summer fruit wine tempts the nose. This is an indulgent mixture to prepare for smoking. As the flame dances its surface it catches and burns, seemingly with glee. It's a long, relaxing, cool smoke that would aid in contemplative meditation. Being a Special Reserve for 2015, this tobacco won't be around for long.
Notes: This blend celebrates the 150 year anniversary of Peterson of Dublin.

I was given this tobacco by a friend who mostly likes VA's. I was very fond of it in the beginning, but fondness slowly turned into aversion as weeks passed by. The initial elegance somehow broke down into what seemed a very cheap ARO. Lovers of fruity ARO's will likely appreciate it, just avoid letting it age.
