Peterson's Wild Atlantic mixture is an elegant blend comprised of loose-cut, ripe orange Virginias, fine Oriental leaves, and premium quality Latakia from the Balkans. The generous amount of Latakia provides this rich blend with its unique English character and a traditional smoky note.
This is one of my favorite English Blends. If my memory is correct , I think this is the reason I started enjoying English blends (it came with my Peterson Pipe that I purchased ). The open pouch freshness, the texture and feel

Perfect for a all day smoke, full of flavor. The Orientals take the center stage but by no means downplay the smokiness of the Latakia, the natural sweetness of the Virginia always gave a strong support to the smoke and it shows no domination! Very v... Read Moreery nice! Read Less

So there between the Americas and The British Isles lies the Wild Atlantic. The name is apt actually. Wild Atlantic is marketed as a “Traditional English Blend” but seems custom built for the milder aro-smoking American piper who may venture into Eng... Read Morelish waters so-to-speak. It does have the flavors one would expect from an English blend. However, this will not put you to bed like Dunhill Nightcap. It wont raise your eyebrows like Lane Limited Medal of Valor. No, this is a very tame English. You can taste the Latakia flavor as well as some oriental, but it is rather mild non-the-less. It reminds me of a weak version of Missouri Meerschaum American Patriot. Wild Atlantic is a fast burner that can get a bit ashy quickly. It's a pouch rather than a tin if you believe that means something. But, I don't want to put anyone off Wild Atlantic. It's a good one to carry in a pocket or glove box for a quick smoke on-the-go and it'll suffice for that Latakia fix until you can light-up your favorite Lat-bomb. I'm fond of the ribbon cut they use...it's almost a shag you have to pull apart. Nice, I like that. It has a reasonable price tag for what you get and I do believe I'd buy this again. Enjoy.

It's a great blend, I would agree with smoking pipes 3 out of 5 for taste not too strong, barely any nic, and keeps you intrigued through out the bowl. It's only 4.5 cuz I just want a bit more out of it, I will always keep some in the house :)
Lights well and burns evenly. Not too strong but with enough latakia to let you know what you're smoking. Smooth, not bitey, but can get a bit hot you are smoking it while doing something. Bought another pouch, quite happy.
The dark Virginias tend to lead the ensemble in this blend, especially in the first third of the bowl. The Latakias and Orientals move subtly to the foreground as you smoke through the bowl, but they never predominate. The tangy dark Virginias provi... Read Morede a more earthy undertone throughout the smoke. This is a good all-day smoke that pairs well with a medium to dark roast coffee. Some occasional sweetness comes through but it tends to be more savory throughout. Despite the presence of Latakia and Oriental leaf, the blend lacks complexity that would warrant a higher rating. It burns consistently cool from first light, and it does not bite or get harsh. It works well as a smoke while working as it is mild to medium in its nicotine content. It is in the same flavor profile as Old Dublin but it is less complex in the mingling of its components. Read Less
Here is my opinion on the tobacco as I am smoking it right now:
The blend is a medium strength and comes in ribbon cut which packs and burns easy. I can definitely taste the Latakia and spicy Orientals but it lacks the Virginia flavor for me. Room ...

The pouch note is quite pleasant and not too smoky. It has a leathery aroma like an old book. It is a little moist straight out of the pouch, but can be smoked straight away. However, a little drying time would help. It lights well and smokes evenly.... Read More The Latakia isn't as pronounced as many other popular English blends, but it is still present. It is not as sweet as others either. There is a spicy note that comes through with the Orientals (almost as if there is a bit of Perique, but of course there is not). Overall, this is a nice medium blend. A touch more sweetness would have given this another half star or so in the rating for my palette. In summary, a very nicely balanced English blend with a touch of spice that is worth consideration. Read Less

I don't find any component that is more outstanding than the others. They work in harmony and deliver you a unique creamy smoke. || Nicotine Level: Not noticeable. || Additional Notes: From my experience, it has tasted better in pipes with smaller bowls. I'm not sure if others experience the same. I will be getting extras soon to be cellar-ed. Read Less
Peterson's Wild Atlantic Traditional English Blend is an excellent classic English. Medium in strength with a subtle use a Latakia, it's a perfect all day smoke. The leaf is fresh but not wet from the pouch, and as you pinch off a plug of the packe... Read Mored ribbon, it packs quite easily. It lights well and smokes cool. You will love this blend and should buy several pouches.
The only question is why Peterson decided to make this available only in pouches. It's probably not fair, but I generally equate tobacco in pouches with "Drugstore" brands, that I often dismiss as my "Grandfathers blend". I hope that they soon offer Wild Atlantic in a tin as well. Read Less
