A mixture of Virginia, Burley, and Oriental tobaccos is pressed and cube-cut, then mixed further with black Cavendish and more Virginia, then flavored with rum, in addition to the aromas of mango, maracuja and vanilla.
I haven't this much fun with a new tobacco in decades. The cut reminds me of salsa and so does the variety of colors. It's easy to pack and light, the various flavors burst like 4th of July fireworks, and are a joy to the last bit of ash. With mild,... Read More fascinating flavors, no bite, I could smoke this all day (and have, until I ran out of tins.)
I hope this gets back in stock soon and enjoys a long residence. Read Less
Another solid limited edition aromatic from Peterson. It's a cube cut blend which I've never had before. Loading it is a bit awkward and it takes a few char lights to get the ember going well. Once it does though the blend seems to smoke itself almos... Read Moret. The leaf mixture is nice. I will say I don't notice the Orientals much at all. It's mostly the sweet Virignias and Black Cavendish with an occasional hint of nuttiness from the Burley. The top dressing comes across mostly as rum and mango with the vanilla being a background flavor. I haven't gotten tongue bite from it. The room note is very pleasant. I loaded a bowl at a B&M with a few pipe friends and one asked if he could have a bowl just from smelling the room note. Read Less
Now this was a total surprise to me in every way! I was intrigued by the seemingly bizarre but creative mix of elements going into this blend. I was looking for an aromatic but one with “something extra”… a little more depth and complexity than I u... Read Moresually encounter in the genre. I like a wide variety of pipe blends of all different kinds. This one named the Virginias, Burley, oriental, and “spicy” tobaccos.(Wondering exactly what the spicy one might be… I didn’t detect any perique or others more commonly referred to that way.) The fruit mélange was fascinating… mango, “maracuja” – had to look that one up: a Brazilian version of the passion fruit… and vanilla, if that counts as a fruit. And of course rum! Black Cavendish could be a vehicle for just about any of those sweet elements. Upon cracking the tin, voila! There was the tightly packed “cube-cut”, just as they said. All the colors of the tobacco rainbow were present from light golden yellow to black and everything in between. The tin note was at once rich and complex with all the notes already mentioned discernible… fruitiness, sweetness, and smooth Virginia-scents prevailing. The only prior tobacco I had experienced that this reminded me of was Dan Blue Note, but only hints thereof. I quickly settled down to a long, totally enjoyable hour and a half smoke. The moisture and burning characteristics were fine to my taste right out of the tin. The aroma was smashing and won rave reviews from Her Majesty. The flavors were indeed rich, complex, and scintillating. And the freshness, creativity, and originality of the blend lasted the entire bowl to the last tiny cube-cut flake of bakkie was burned. No gunk, burn-out, gurgle, or anything of the other curses frequently visited upon rich aromatics. For anyone seeking a delicious, rich, flavorful, and totally unique aromatic blend, I’d heartily recommend this! Read Less
