Welcome back to another episode of the Mystery Tobacco Review! For this month's installment, we're back with a very special guest Inquisitor: Mr. Glen Whelan, Director of Sales at Kapp & Peterson. Peterson pipes are something of a family tradition for Glen. His father worked in the Sallynoggin factory for 50 years, eventually serving as Factory Manager, and Glen got his start as a part-time retail associate in the Peterson store at the age of 16. Today, Glen leads Peterson's sales efforts and works closely with the factory on pipe design, so naturally, we were super excited to see which pipe tobacco he had in store for us.
Tune in as Shane, Truett, and I smoke through a bowl of Glen's chosen mixture and attempt to guess its manufacturer, components, and name. Did we get it right? Or did Glen school us with his Peterson heritage? Watch the video to find out.

What is The Mystery Tobacco Review?
For those of you unfamiliar with this little game, each month one member of our team selects a tobacco for us to review in a blind taste-test. Then we gather around the camera, scratch our heads, and smoke, all while attempting to guess the mysterious mixture's components, origins, and name. There's only one rule: There are no rules.
