Cornell & Diehl - Jolly Old Saint Nicholas 2oz
A Cut Above, Truly Excellent
Caveat, I'm not an aromatic smoker. Dunhill English mixtures are more my speed. With that out of the way, I picked up a Peterson pipe I'd been wanting here at SP.com and a tin of this came along for free with the order. I cracked it this afternoon and the tin note put me right back to being 9 years old at the family gathering with marvelous smells coming out of the kitchen - a promise of the feast to be had later. As the accurate tin description states there's a dose of Orange Liqueur and hints of Ginger in the mixture. I pick up a vanilla and a cranberry in there as well but that could be associative with the memories this evoked. My tin was slightly moist and while it smoked well, it required multiple relights. About a half hour's drying time would be advised. Did not bite or turn harsh through multiple bowls. Smooth, mild and creamy smoke with a marvelous flavor and aroma. Again, this is listed and an aromatic and it should be, but it's a very light aro - not cloying or overpowering at all. I couldn't detect any perique in the smoke, so if it's in there (and I'm sure it is) it's a minor-player. Bright and bronze Virginia finely cut ribbons and some coarser brown and black ribbons of the cavendish. Packs well, lights well and smokes okay right out of the tin...with the aforementioned drying time it should be perfect. This won't be an everyday smoke for me but as a holiday mixture it's a winner.

G. L. Pease - Sixpence 2oz
Marvelous
Very rich and satisfying. Red Virginias and a generous amount of Perique. Description says dark fired Kentucky and I won't disagree, but the major players are the Va and Per. Broken flake, moisture was good from tin so it went directly into a jar. If you're a VaPer fan, you owe it to yourself to try this one. GLP has knocked it out of the park with Six Pence.
