Part of Peterson's "Founders Collection", a trio of tobaccos produced in honor of Charles Peterson and Henry and Fredrick Kapp, Signature Blend is a pure Virginia flake that includes bright leaf sourced from Africa and Brazil, and that is given only the slightest casing to improve room-note without affecting flavor.
I had passed up these tins that had been in a baccy shop for a couple of years. I would always see them and just go meh probably just another Peterson aromatic. Then one day recently i picked up the tin and read african virginias. I like the depth of... Read More the African brown virginias so i looked it up on Tobacco reviews and said i'll give it a shot. Now i can't comment on fresh out the tin version, but the flakes I recieved were sticky and had an amazing tin note. Tiny Sugar crystals beginning to form on the flakes. About ten minutes of dry time and was ready to go. This blend started out the first few puffs and ok then the depth just slammed me. Dark rich brown sugar notes accompanied by earthiness amazing depth. Not as funky as Gawith BBF but the same grain of earthiness. I have found, and this is my opinion, It has an early finish, so I feel it will benefit from being smoked in a more shallow chamber, such as an apple or prince 18-19mm. Also be careful with lighting as i found the more relights you have the more the flavor dissipates. But man when it's on it impressive. I catch myself saying, Damn this is good quite often. Read Less

This is a very smooth virginia flake by any means. The flavour is malty sweet, hints of buttered toast and honey, as one would expect from a virginia. There is no bite to be found. At all. Just fold, stuff, light, sip, and think.
Not complex, yo... Read Moreu aren't going to daydream an art museum and taste mozart with this, but you will enjoy it for what it is: a good simple flake, for a good simple session on the pipe. The flakes are ready to go from the tin. Sweet hay, mild fruit, and a toasty character hit the nose when you smell the nicely cut flakes.
Its good. Read Less
