A&C Petersen - Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Not sure what happened but!!
I love this blend and occasionally pick up and smoke a new tin just to keep in my car. The last time I picked up in January was tinned in November of 2023. It was harsh and bitter. I have always preferred aged escudo but it was a case of good to great. Now it was awful. Not sure if the are skimping on the Virginias now that Peterson owns the blend. But STG made it then and now. So iits certainly disappointing.

Cornell & Diehl - Comfort 2oz
Pleasant surprise
I ordered this based on blend type and ratings. I only ordered one tin to see if it agreed with me. Well, so far so good. Excellent mechanics, typical flavors one would expect from a sweet Va Per/ Bur/Cav blend. No surprises and smoked great without any age on the tin. I’ll be buying more to cellar and will enjoy this blend down the road with even higher expectations. Definitely an all day smoke.
