Peterson Connemara Black

(2.10)
Peterson's Connemara Black is a different take on one of the most popular types of pipe tobacco - cherry aromatics. Soft, superb black cavendish is blended with mature, ripe Virginias, and accented with a singularly sweet and zesty cherry note. Cool enough to enjoy all day, Connemara Black has an outstanding room note that everyone will love.

Not so bad πŸ™‚ But not terribly exciting either. I believe I've had better cherry mixtures, but this one will do. I'd been smoking English mixtures for a long time and I really wanted something aromatic, and, plus, I hadn't had cherry flavored tobacco in years. The first impression was that of a strong and rather artificial smell (but, remember, I'd been smoking Dunhill and Samuel Gawith mixtures for weeks). The pipe (a Peterson Bulldog with rather thick walls) got a little too hot in the process. But I felt absolutely no tongue bite and generally it was a good, pleasant smoke. The second fill tasted better than the first one. I'm looking forward to the next session.

Did I enjoy this tobacco? Yes. Would I buy it again? Probably not, if I had better cherry options. But if I don't, I might as well. It's satisfactory.

I've been reading tobaccoreviews for years, and I consult it regularly before I shop for pipe tobacco, but this is my first review, so don't judge it too harshly πŸ˜‰

Package note of sugar, cherries and sweet vegetation. Tobacco is a ribbon cut of brown, black and light brown. Moisture content is great. Burns moderately with few relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild. Flavoring is mild to medium, with notes of Cherry. Cherry flavoring didn't last that long, dropped to the background during the first 1/4, where it remained. Taste is medium to full and moderately consistent, with notes of cherry, sugar, marshmallow, almost creamy, zesty spices, tangy dark fruit, hay, sweet bread, acidic, tart, mildly savory, spicy, citrus, wood, a semi-sweet vegetation background note, and a mostly smooth retro. Virginia is leading with flavoring and Cavendish supporting. Room note is pleasant to tolerable, and aftertaste is good.

Very nice change of pace regarding a cherry tobacco. Cherry is barely there but enough to enjoy. Take it slow and sip slow. Great for mowing lawn or busy doing something as it’s one flavour all through

Nice scent from bag and good draw after packing it and before getting it lit. Yes, I do practice this technique on every tobacco I pack in search for initial taste. The first third burned easy and I detected the cherry. On the second third it burned a little hot, but that lasted about seven minutes after I set a slower smoking pace and that solved the issue. There were no gurgles and and flavor is not overwhelming. Neither I got tongue bite nor detected the ash taste. I will continue smoking this tobacco with other pipes.
