In the past 12 years, I have tried this blend numerous times, always with the same result

A comforting smoke for a winters day best enjoyed on the porch with a cup of tea spectating the rising sun.

I get immediate tongue bite. It must be the flavoring. I know Peterson uses quality tobacco, but this blend is not for me.

The experience is pleasant to the smoker and others nearby

A friend of mine posed a question “If you are stranded on a desert Island with baccy. which blend(s) would you have?” And as for english blends I had many, but for aromatics, it was this one, no competition. A really great aromatic.. smooth. , good burner, gives a lot of complements on room note

The caramel note dominates the vanilla base, and both sit on top of a very even nutty base. The mixture feels wet and burns a little hot.

It packed nicely and lit easily in my cob

I really don’t understand the vehemently negative reviews of this blend. I am not sure we are even talking about the same tobacco.

I got this in a trade, so I don’t know how old it was. Opening the tin, the aroma was of wonderful yellow Virginia with it’s characteristic fruity/citrusy nose, and a little musky sweetness, probably from the Maryland Cavendish. There was a noticeable https://hookupdate.net/escort-index/port-st-lucie/ hint of caramel, but only in the background. Mostly what I smelled was yellow Virginia. The moisture content was perfect. The cut seemed to be a mixture of broken flake and ribbon cut. There was none of the catsup smell that I would’ve expected from flake Virginia.

The first few puffs threatened to to bite. so I slowed down on puffing, and the blend settled down quickly. The smoke was silky smooth, mild to medium, and seductivley sweet, like the Girl-Next Door wanting to be a vamp. The taste was mostly wonderful yellow Virginia, and a little musky black cavendish. The caramel taste was there, but way in the background. just enough.The sweetness was not a casing taste, but more just from sweet Virginia and a little Cavendish. It was mostly a great yellow Virginia, so it probably can bite if provoked. The room note was just a clean tobacco aroma with a hint of caramel. very pleasant to innocent bystanders, or so I was told.

The flavor never changed all the way to the bottom, and it all burned to a fine ash with no dottle or gurgling. I only had to relight once (probably due to an error in packing on my part).

I found this to be an outstanding blend for what it is. a sweet, what I would call a semi-aromatic, yellow Virginia blend. I like sweet smokes. If you don’t, well, all I can say is read the tin. It says it right on the top, “Sweet Killarney”. They do not lie.

I think if you were to add just a pinch or two of Latakia to this, you would have a blend comparable to Dunhill’s magnificent The Aperitif (my favorite).

If you like sweet tobaccos, but not overly flavored, then this is a blend you’ll really want to try. Treat it gentle and it will give you an enjoyable cruise. If you Hot Rod it, I am sure you will probably crash-and-burn.

The room note and aroma coming out of the tin set you up for disappointment. Taste is bland and it burns hotter than other Peterson blends. I much prefer Connoisseur’s Choice or Deluxe blend over Sweet Killarney. It isn’t bad but there are much better blends out there.
