Sweet Killarney is a unique mixture of selected tobaccos including Virginia, Burley, and Maryland leaf with some Black Cavendish, topped with a cream caramel flavor. To make this wonderful tobacco even more attractive, the folks at Peterson blended it with hand-rubbed Virginia flake which results in a fantastic aroma.
It always amazes me when people review a blatantly aromatic tobacco and give it a low rating because they don’t like aromatics. This is an aromatic! And it’s a very good one at that. It is sweet, it smells wonderful, and if smoked correctly it doesn’... Read Moret bite or burn overly hot. It’s not goopy, and burns to nice white ash. This does seem to be fairly strong in the nicotine department, especially for an aromatic. I’ve never had it ghost a briar or a cob. However, I use a pipe sweetener/ cleaner on a pipe cleaner after I smoke anything. If you want a nice sweet aromatic and want to still savor the flavor of the tobacco( which is high quality) I would recommend this blend. Read Less
If you’re craving a sweet smoke on the back of quality tobacco, this has potential. It is a full body smoke despite its sweet flavor.

I get a nice almond joy tin note on this one. Its a nice chocolate and coconut smell on this one. It does come through in the smoke but maybe not as much as i would hope for. Its a good smooth smoke that can give some tounge bite if smoked to fast.
First sampled in 2009. I've since started the pipe hobby again. I found this blend to be similar to Solani 131 Red Label in tin aroma & similar in taste, strength, etc., but not a total clone. This will bite like wildfire if one isn't careful to ... Read Moretake slow, small sips while indulging. Not overly searing to the palate in that respect for an aromatic & does provide a slight sweet flavor.
One would expect more sweetness from the name & tin note. It leaves no goopy dottle in the bowl but it will leave a ghost in there for the next couple of rounds. I don't smoke many aromatics these days & this review is based only on the merits of an aromatic blend. It didn't propel me into purchasing another tin but it isn't totally awful. Could use a bit of "refinement." Read Less

Aside from the monochromatic scale of the caramel flavour there is nothing much to add.

This was one of the first tobaccos I tried as a new pipe-smoker, and I have returned to it regularly in the intervening years.

I'm not a fan of aromatic pipe tobacco, but I tried it.
Tin note is very good,room note is OK. but I don't like this taste. easy burning but not smoke too fast cause it just burning hot! for me on the whole is OK.
This tobacco was a bit more harsh than I expected, but I still like it.
