The Peterson Irish Dew is a new luxury mixture of well-matured Virginia and toasted burley tobaccos with whiskey and blossom fruit undertones. The sweet hint of vanilla and touch of chocolate arising from the toasted burley give this tobacco an exceptional finish. The blend is pressed into cakes and rubbed, enhancing the natural aroma of the tobacco.

Medium Mild Medium Pleasant

Of all the new pouches offerings from Peterson, I was especially intrigued by Irish Dew. So this is the only one I bought. To be honest, from reading its description, I was expecting a heavily cased aromatic, similar to the tinned ones. To my surprise, breaking the seal revealed a very subtle whiskey and chocolate aroma that was very pleasant to the nose. To discern the blossom fruit casing, I had to inhale deeply; and, even then, I could barely make it out. Irish Dew presents you with a long cut tobacco of the partially rubbed - out flake variety, from golden to light brown in colour. Its moisture level made it perfect for packing right away - which I did: I packed my pipe right there and now. It burned well, didn't smoke hot and never bit my tongue. It certainly is Burley forward, but with a fair proportion of Virginias. The taste was of tobacco, discreet fruitiness, chocolate, and a faint hint of whiskey. When I reached the last third of the bowl, Irish Dew became a bit sweeter but it was never too sweet. The nicotine was enough to prevent me from reaching out, once I was done my pipeful, for another pipe and pack something stronger to make up. It smoked dry until the end. I am pleasantly surprised by Irish Dew and will buy more with great pleasure. I really think it's a good tobacco and its quality was evident to me. 2.5 stars.

Well...I can pen a bit more positive review on Irish Dew than I did for Connemara Black. When I opened the pouch I was greeted with that grassy, new mowed hay aroma. Sweet and grassy.... which spells Virginia. The tobacco is a nice broken flake. Rich medium to light brown and dark yellow. I did not smell any chocolate, vanilla, whiskey or fruit. Nor did I taste any of these. The pouch came fresh from the B&M and the moisture was just right for my taste. It packed great. I did a charring light and tamped once. Halfway down I re-tamped and lit again...and that took me to the bottom of the bowl. Nice white gray ash. No dottle. Very little to no bite on the tongue but the bowl burned a bit hot. So I would recommend a very slow puff. The taste was fairly enjoyable. I do not have a lot of experience with Virginias. This blend reminds me of "Skandinavik Full Aroma" which I really enjoy! I don't taste anything but the Virginia. I could not even pick up any Burley either. I love "PA Choice" so I am familiar with Burley. I get a kind of a soapy flavor...floral in a way. That's about it. But it is flavourful and smooth. It is a tad strong if you inhale it...but very full bodied and satisfying if you exhale thru the nose. I do see some cheap squiggley Virginia ribbon in the mix...which gives it a bit of a strong cigarette taste and smell at first...but it dissipates quickly. The only reason I say this is because I used to smoke cigarettes...Marlboro's to be exact. But all said...I liked it. I would probably not buy it again...but I don't feel I wasted my money. I will finish the pouch. Unlike Connemara Black...which I threw out with the weeks refuse. I think a true Virginia lover would enjoy it as a novelty smoke. Nothing spectacular but worth investigating. As we all know...as it goes with us fellow pipe smokers..".ya never know!" But I must say that I am becoming increasingly wary of pouched tobacco. I believe I will stick to tins. And even then there is no guarantee!!

I loved it, it reminded me of MacBaren Virgina No1, since it's so sweet and smooth earthy and woody. You should rub and dry it, otherwise it's not as good as it should be. Have patience and it will reveal itself. It reminds me of hay and a burning campfire out in the wild. I love it as a day to day tobacco. Don't use a filtered pipe if you want to enjoy this.

This is a very mild aromatic if that is what you have to call it. The whisky and fruit toppings are so mild that they are almost unnoticeable, and for the most part, all I get are the natural sweet flavors of the Virginia tobaccos. I would say that this is an ok aromatic and I would call this an ok Virginia burley blend, but it is not stellar in either category. As for the tobacco, it appears to be a quality Virginia burley blend with no twiggy or hard bits mixed in with it. It packs easily due to the cut and takes a light well, as the moisture level is almost perfect. This is not a gloopy or wet aromatic by any means. Flavor profile was again mild on the aromatic front and mainly seemed to me to be that of sweet Virginias with hay like or grassy notes being the predominant flavor. I was not able to really detect any of the nutty flavors usually associated with burley tobaccos during my smoke, which leads me to believe that this is a Virginia forward blend. The room note was described to me by those in the room as slightly sweet and grassy. All in all, a decent smoke, but a hard one to place in a specific category, for me at least. A decent tobacco that you may want to sample for yourself if you want a light aromatic with more of the Virginia flavors. Remember that all reviews are subjective, and everyone will experience the tobacco differently

Took a chance on this since we are talking about a Peterson aromatic. My experience tells me that Peterson should really focus on non aromatic blends, since the difference between how well I like each is like night and day. With that being said, I must admit that this is more of a non aro than aromatic because of the near total lack of whatever additives one can detect in this blend. It isn't until near the bottom of the bowl that I can actually taste anything that has been added to this blend, outside of some very good quality tobaccos. If you are looking for an aromatic with full flavorings, please move along this isn't the tobacco you're looking for. Like I say above, the tobaccos used in this blend are a good quality and you should get some compliments on the room note. Other than that, it is a middle of the road blend for me. Overall, may be worth a try if you like aromatics that are not dripping with excessive flavorings.

Peterson - Irish Dew.

The 'mixture' appears, to me, to comprise mainly shag cut and broken flake pieces. As this was from a sample bag I'm unsure of the water content from a fresh tin, this is more than adequate though. The only aroma from the added flavours I can identify in the unlit note is a floral one. There may be some of the alcohol present but I could be confusing that with the floral piquancy I get.

On to the smoke: Like the unlit aroma, the only extra flavours I get are a floral one with a delicate whiskey touch. The whiskey is a lot less ambiguous in the smoke's taste though; I'm more than sure It's not any of the floral nuances getting mistaken; it seems certain to me that this taste is from whiskey.

It also seems, to me, that the floral/whiskey note becomes stronger at about the halfway point. I'd describe it as mild to medium to begin with, leaning more towards medium to strong after the first half.

The cocoa and chocolate miss me completely; I can't identify any of them, at all.

The taste is okay at first but after a while it becomes too sharp and somewhat harsh for my palate. Personally, I think Peterson have missed a trick by not adding some Black Cavendish to calm this down and give the vanilla flavour some backup.

The best feature of this is the room note; lots of character from both the additives and tobacco's. However it creates a smog so don't smoke it near any anti-pipers!

I would highly rate this if the flavour stayed as it was at the beginning for the duration of the smoke. That doesn't happen though; it becomes harsh, sharp and acrid. This reduces it to only two stars.

Somewhat recommended.

Very Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

First impressions: in my pouch I have found big broken flakes, that were definitely not dry.

Tin note: not a whole lot other than sweet, grassy Va, maybe some herbal notes.

When smoking: tongue bite is non-existent. The taste does not become very strong at any moment. Falvouring is mild and it does not dominate Va taste. The casing itself appears to be mainly whisky. Tobacco has some problems with catching the fire, but after being well lit burns more or less properly.

Final thoughts: probably an example of love-hate situation. If you are not closed for such blends, you may actually like it. It is not the best blend by any means. However works nice as a book companion as it is mild and undemanding. If you choose to pay more attention to it, you may find that it has some hidden notes that are very rewarding to discover. I like it and will get more. It is one of those, which are possible to enjoy. I don't really understand its low rating. Especially when you compare it to Alsbo rating.

Strong Medium to Strong Full Pleasant to Tolerable

After my first disappointing Peterson (Connoisseur's), this was already a clear improvement. It's an aromatic but a moderate one, with a good, solid burley base giving it a nice dark chocolate/cocoa tang which is already very noticeable in the pouch tone. Long strands of hardish flake mean that some rubbing by hand is in order to build a proper bowl, and a charring light or two are probably needed; once it gets going though it produces a very satisfying, slow-burning, thick and wholesome smoke a little bit on the strong side. So satisfying in fact that I noticed that I need to smoke markedly smaller bowls of this compared to many other brands, making a pouch last perhaps 1.5 times as long as usual, which actually makes this a rather economical brand for me, even considering the higher prices of Petersons.

Not really a regular brand for me, but will definitely be buying again when I get the chance. Complements a cup of dark-roast coffee, dark cocoa or strong black tea very well.

I've been rather taken by this blend. My experience is that it is essentially a very mild ready rubbed flake. Nothing powerful or demanding attention. Possibly even bland. Smokes fairly cool. Could even be an "all day" or "go to" but I'm a fairly steady smoker and a Peterson pouch is a bit pricey for that for my budget. I don't tend to pick it as my "end of the day, savor the bowl" smoke. If I were out for a day and was going to put one pouch of tobacco in my pocket to get me through the day, yes, this is a top contender.

My rating system: 1 - F(ailure) 2 - questionable 3 - Acceptable/Decent Smoke 4 - A #3 that I really like. 5 - Ambrosia (The stuff you dream of or read about. "Old Toby" or "Longbottom Leaf". I gave 5 stars to Capstan because I like it and Tolkien smoked it so it's probably the benchmark for the fictional leaf.)

The aromas in this are subtle, both from the tin and smokewise... some faint chocolate and whiskey. For me this was way too boring to delve deeper into, so a short review for a dull blend. Maybe it could work for someone with a much more sensitive palate, but I'll pass on this one. Not worthless or unsmokable though, so two stars it is.

I've reviewed Peterson's blends in the past and pronounced them tasteless and bland.

This one is neither of those things, and besides, my tastes have changed over the last few years.

I was rather surprised to find this in the smallest tobacconist in Worcester. Well it wasn't even a shop or a room - it was a shelf, cunningly hidden behind the ubiquitous iron door. Of those on offer this was just about the only one I hadn't seen before.

It came in a 40g pouch, which I thought was a bit mean. Wasn't cheap, either.

The pouch fragrance is not what I expected. Like other reviewers I was expecting an aromatic, but this is a rather coarse tobacco-strand mix with a topping of what could could well be whisky. Don't get vanilla nor, thankfully 'floral' tones.

The smoke is excellent, smooth and comforting with few relights. Goes rather dry in the pouch. Can't say I can compare it with anything else and I haven't had the (apparently) dreadful Borkham Riff Whisky.

It's certainly an all-day tobacco, but not a day-in day-out blend. A decent tobacco with subtle flavourings. Well worth having in your collection.

Really torn apart about this blend... I was excited to try it and a fellow pipe smoker send me a pouch. Now that I have smoked several bowls throughout the last days I still don't get too excited over it...

The pouch note is quite tobacco-y with a floral flavoring in the back. Not too much of the Whiskey detectable, maybe a hint if you look for it! Chocolate and Vanilla? Nope... not detectable to me! But the Virginias give a nice grassy fresh aroma. Burley in the back.

In the pipe the tobacco is in forefront. Fresh, grassy, slightly citrusy Virginias enhanced by the smooth, full-bodied Burleys that also contribute some earth and minor nuttiness, maybe a hint of chocolate, but that may come from the topping. The floral-essence is present in every puff, but very mild and smooth. The Whiskey isn't detectable at all to me. If you like floral toppings and a nice Va/Bur, you'll might like this. But even then.. it's not per se "flat", but not really full-bodied nor complex. An easy smoke for tiems you don't want to mind the tobacco too much.

2,5/4 stars, as it's not bad, but neither really impressing!

Very fruity smell from pouch and very appealing. Reminded me of Troost Aromatic from a freshly opened tin. Medium brown ribbon packed nicely in the pouch. Loading and lighting was easy without problems keeping lit. Not much of a taste - mild tobacco, no detectable flavors as per the description. However, if you want something mild with a pleasant room note this would serve the purpose and I can't see many non-smokers complaining here. Irish Flake is my number one favorite/daily go to (smoking several bowls daily). The only similarity is the word "Irish"; same with Peterson's Irish Mixture (formerly Irish Whiskey), and I didn't care for that one much. With Irish Dew, there is a pleasantly sweet, but non descript side stream which I found pleasant. Recommended for when you want something mild ie, a set-it-and-forget-it smoke.

Peterson makes some very fine tobacco's, however this is not one of them. The cut was of a broken flake that was partially rubbed out. The pouch note gave me some hope that this was going to be a decent smoke, it was tobacco forward, with that typical burley nuttiness, not syrupy with maybe a slight cocoa, whiskey and floral note. These notes did not translate to the smoke all that well though, I found it to be kind of boring and bland and the nic content was a tick above mild. I think I may have tasted some whiskey, and maybe some of the cocoa but very far in the background. It burned fairly evenly with 4-5 relights and did not give me any tongue bite. This blend needs some character though, at the halfway point of the bowl, I picked up on some sweetness, but alas it slipped away after a few puffs. I will probably jar this up with a little blending perique added in and put it away for a while. Maybe that will give it the character that it needs. I will give it 2 stars, but just because I have had worse.

Some countries in Europe have banned pipe tobacco tins leaving this as the only Peterson option outside of ordering online. This pouch had me rest my pipes and turn to snuff. The toppings burn off quick and leave you with very bland and poor quality tobaccos. This is a very disappointing product from Peterson, considering they have some great blends in their lineup. Drug store pouches don't have to be this stereotypically terrible.

The pouch was packaged in May 2021, so the tobacco in it was fresh. I find it pointless to try to store and age such budget blends.

Appearance: a finely chopped blend of light, almost lemon Virginia and a slightly darker straw burley. I know from the description of the production of this blend that the tobacco is first pressed into a cake and then finely chopped, so the cut can be considered something in between just chopped tobacco and broken flake. The shades of the different tobaccos are very close in color, and at arm's length the blend seems almost homogeneous. It is very easy to pipe, and the moisture to the touch is almost perfect.

Flavor: A fairly simple bouquet consisting of hay, fresh malted bread, roasted chestnut, bitter chocolate and a barely recognizable vanilla note. The flavoring is definitely noticeable, but overall - the overall flavor of the blend is very unexpressive. I'm not sure that I felt the whiskey in it.

Taste: a straightforward typical ordinary Virginia with some Burley. Fresh sweetish hay, a little bit of woody and earthy burley with a nutty hint - and, actually, that's it. No undertones, no transitions. The tobacco smokes hot enough and requires slow smoking, but initially it tends to bite your tongue if you overheat it a little. By the middle of the pipe the birley gains strength and the light Virginia becomes weaker, the flavor becomes softer, sweetish-woody with a typical earthy-walnut flavor, but remains the same unexpressed. The strength is just below average. The tobacco burns into a fine ash of almost white color, leaving some moisture in the pipe.

The smoke is quite dense for such a light blend, with a distinct "cigarette" smell. It hangs in the room, having a sweetly woody smell, similar to the smell of American cigarettes.

What's the bottom line? Overall, it's hard to say anything about the advantages of this blend. But it's also hard to find faults with it. This is a very ordinary budget tobacco "for every day" that unassuming fans of Virginia-Burley blends can smoke - the flavoring hasn't spoiled it one bit. Honestly, I don't understand what for it was needed here at all.

This tobacco is quite amusing. I actually bought it because I am in search of good whiskey flavoured aromatic which are pretty scarse in Eastern Europe where I live. Anyway, opened the pouch - got smell of hay and rasins, it was really quite unussual. Stuff lights pretty lightly, stays lit pretty well, no tongue bite even if it gets too hot. It's actually my first aromatic that wasn't sweet and I enjoyed very much. Flavour during is smoking is mostly vanilla with bitter chocolate and a nice note of rasins. Room note is almost godly. This tobacco tastes like normal tobacco but at the same time has many different flavours. Half a bowl later flavour started to taste like campfire wood/coal. All in all it's and everyday smoke for me. Highly recommended

As of now, I gave up to guess what does it smell or taste. I just enjoy it. It has a unique, almost funny taste that travels my mind to the mountains of Ireland, to small cottages amids endless forests. It's name, Irish Dew also helps with this. Perfect pairing to LotR soundtracks and fantasy tavern music. ...ok, I'll try. It tastes like a blur of sweet virginia, irish whiskey and chocolate, and nearly anything you can think of (beside latakia, perhaps). Funny that I got to taste some orientals in it just to discover later on that is haven't got any inside. Imagine it like the ARO-man's EMP; perfect all-timer, but shines best early in the morning or late afternoon right before sunset. Pair with nearly any drink you like: whiskey, coke, fruit juices, rum, tea, beer or ale, and so forth. Avoid however, in my opinion, wine and champagne, hence they attract a sophisticated atmosphere that doesn't match with that tobacco (and with piping also, few exceptions only), and liquores as they tend to be a bit too strong for Irish dew (it is not a horse-kicker strong ARO after all...)

Peterson's Irish Dew is one of the Peterson pouch offerings like Aran which is another decent blend. Comes as 40g which is smaller than most other pouchs and can be had for around $6 making it not the cheapest pou h blend but not expensive either.

The appearance is broken flake well rubbed but obviously not ribbon or any other cut for that matter.

Flavor is light and mild with a citrusy Virginia twang. The floral notes are only slightly apparent and not obvious by any means. Any other flavorings are very light as well.

Overall this is a lightly flavored blend that is in a similar family as Royal Yacht or other tobacco forward slightly flavored blends. Irish Dew does have a tendency to bite a bit if pushed which prevents 4 stars plus there are better options in this genre IMO but i did think it was worth picking up a second pouch just in case it gets discontinued like Wild Atlantic and Comerica Park.
