This excellent Peterson mixture is a blend of first choice Virginia, Burley, and black Cavendish. Sunset Breeze promises a unique smoking experience, which is crowned by a wonderful amaretto aroma that also gives enjoyment to the smokers' surroundings.
One of the first aromatics i learned to like. It has a rich aroma with mild to medium strength and strong amaretto flavour.
A must for lovers of strong aromatics.
An advice, it must be smoked slowly as with most Peterson aromatics or will surely gu... Read Morearantee a sored tongue.
The smoke is a bit tangy, sweet on tongue, tad spicy on the retrohale. With strong start and soft development in where virginias take the prevalent note. Only at the very end the burley shows a note or two.
It is understandable why some people detest this, it is strong cased, and rich in sugars, so it tends to become agressive when puffed too hard (something that may easily happen as the flavour is seducing or the smoker may demand more nuances from the smoke)
Overall, not too complex, rich in flavour and good in ingredients but one needs the mood and the weather to smoke it.
I would say it is for advanced smokers. Read Less
This blend has a very nice sweet blend with the taste of cherry in it. The presentation of the blend is well cut and moist. Smoke slowly to get the full benefit of the tobacco, which is how pipe tobacco in general should be enjoyed. We're not just in...

If you are looking for overpowering flavor. You will not find it here. This has a smooth mild flavor. It burns well and packs nicely. I wouldn't smoke this every day but once and awhile. Maybe 2-3 times a month.
Reviewed in 2011... Back in 2009 when I was a relatively newbie piper, this and Peterson's Luxury Blend were the first two samples of vacuum sealed tins that I tried. This stuff tasted pretty good as I recall but was a bit rough on my palate. The tin... Read More aroma smells good enough to eat... if it only smoked like that. The nicotine content of this mix was a bit lacking for me and it smoked a tad harsh.
Not bad for an aromatic but just didn't ring my bell. I've since moved to "topped" rather than heavily cased tobaccos... they always seem to burn cooler. I didn't get the tobacco flavor out of this that I was expecting. Not too bad, however. My rating is based only on the merits of an aromatic blend. Read Less
Amaretto was evident in the tin aroma. This blend requires a slow smoke/sipping cadence or it will bite you. The amaretto flavor lasted between 1/4 and 1/2 of the bowl for me before it was gone and was replaced with a generic sweet flavor. Overall it... Read More is a decent blend. Read Less
My personal opinion is this is a good tobacco for my tastes. I love the smell and my wife doesn't complain about it like she does others. If you burn through tobacco quickly it can bite, but if you smoke slowly like I do its cool without a bite.
Ayax g. in his earlier review is entirely correct. This is a good smoke if not rushed. This is my first aromatic since becoming a serious pipe smoke four or five years ago. I stayed clear of them because of their reputation and I needed to become... Read More more adept. This proved to be a nice introduction. When the tin is first opened you must spend some time preparing the tobacco before loading the pipe. It must be a looser pack than normal English blends and care must be taken in subsequent tamping. At the first hint of bite, slow down. The bowl smokes clean down to white ash, very little bite and the rebreathing is very enjoyable. Bottom line, if you have time for a leisurely smoke where you can pay attention to the bowl, this tobacco is very pleasant. Read Less
Look, it you want to smoke a pipe to be popular with the neighbours, smoke this one. If you want to smoke a pipe because you enjoy the pass time as a relaxing venture with tobacco that is meant to be, well, tobacco, DON'T smoke this one. It tastes ... Read Morevery bad. It burns very hot. I understand this is all subjective. I understand that some folks just don't ever make it all the way to big slap in the face by Latakia Leaf. I understand that for some, English blends just ain't happening. I understand the Virginia flakes aren't for everyone either but for the love of Pete man, just give flakes a chance, put on your Deer Stalker hat and reading glasses, sit back with a strong cup o' Joe (or Malbec) and think about how you only purchased aromatics when you were a NOOB!!!!

Its okay. The tin smells great. To me the taste just isn't there. There are better aromatics out there that have both the smell and taste combined. If it were a cheaper blend it would get higher rating from me perhaps. I won't mention tongue bite. It... Read More is an aromatic and must be smoked as one. Maybe someday I will try it again.

I love the amaretto smell when it's in the tin. When I smoked it there was a nice aroma, but for some reason gave me quite a bit of tongue bite. I then smoked it in a pipe that has a filter which got rid of most of the tongue bite. So I like it in a ... Read Morefiltered pipe as opposed to a non-filtered one. Go figure. =) Read Less

This one goes great on a warm summer evening with a nice cold drink. The Amaretto flavor comes through nicely and plays off of the leaf very well. It burns evenly and cool. Definitely an aromatic worth trying.
If your looking for a sweet smoke look no further. There is good balance between the Almond and the Amaretto. It has a very sweet aroma and taste. It is not overwhelming with absolutely no bite.
