Peterson's 2015 St. Patrick's Day blend received such a positive response they've reintroduced it, here, as the Founder's Choice, part of the "Founders Collection" of three tobaccos honoring Charles Peterson and the Kapp brothers Henry and Fredrick. For those who missed out the first time around, it's a mixture of Virginia, Burley, and Oriental tobaccos, pressed and cube-cut, then mixed further with black Cavendish and more Virginia. Finally it's flavored with rum, in addition to the aromas of mango and vanilla.
Just picked up a tin from my tobacconist on his recommendation. A new Peterson spigot of course should have Peterson tobacco in it for the first light. On opening the tin I was greeted with a heavenly aroma of and mango. The appearance was a melange ... Read Moreof various colors, with plenty of cube cut tobacco inside. The moisture content freshly opened was spot on, and it packs easily in the bowl. On lighting the aroma of mango fills the air. Trust me no one will complain, and you will get many compliments. Flavor wise, again, another home run. It's clearly a Virginia blend, but the sharp and brassy qualities of that leaf are mellowed with the burley and cavendish. Flavor wise, the Mango and Vanilla are up front, and they complement the fine tobaccos perfectly. I didn't notice the rum that much. The bowl burned clean with little gunk or dottle. This is a repeat buy if you enjoy fine aromatics. Read Less

I highly recommend this tobacco and I will be reordering this in the future. Read Less
After searching for the best part of a year I can say that I found a tobacco I really like. I really taste the mango and the tobacco is just the right strength for me. Like all aromatics you need to smoke it slowly.
