A satisfying, spicy, and aromatic blend of Black Cavendish, Golden and Red Virginia, mixed with luxury broken flake, Connoisseur's Choice features an aromatic recipe of tropical fruit, maple, vanilla, and rum which make this Peterson blend smooth and very pleasant.
This blend is very pleasant and has all sorts of smells and tastes. People like this blend not. But, I really enjoy this because it's important to my repertoire for right now. It's perfect.

I'm new to smoking pipes, I've been smoking it for two or three months now and since I live in Quebec, getting my hand on quality tobacco isn't all that easy. I ordered this tin based on reviews and I am not sorry I did. Very nice smell, not tongue b... Read Moreurn, it's very good. Can't wait to receive my irish flake from Peterson and see what it is all about. Read Less

This is my go to tobacco for anyone I am introducing to pipe smoking. It smells appealing in the pouch and stays lit well enough to make that first smoke easy enough for the beginner. The flavor is not subtle and has been greatly enjoyed by every per... Read Moreson I have introduced it too. The room note is pleasant as we'll with not a lot of tongue bite. Read Less

This blend is enjoyable but nothing spectacular. The description lists tropical fruit, maple, vanilla, and rum as flavors, and I was hoping that the maple and rum would be the most prominent. Unfortunately, the sharp, sweet tropical fruit notes overp... Read Moreower everything else, and I've yet to taste any maple, vanilla or rum.
That's not a deal breaker for me; this is a pleasant, easy smoking blend that packs well (works great with the Frank method) and it burns evenly without any need for re-lights. But it is sweeter than I anticipated, so be forewarned. Read Less

I don't like plastic at all. There's too much of it floating around in the ocean. I like what Stanley says below, that it helped him start his journey with non-aromatics. Nuff sed. Read Less

Wow! This is my new favourite after smoking Lane 1Q. Needs a little drying. Burns very good, great room note.

I've only been smoking a pipe for about 9 months, so take my comments in that light. As I've fumbled my way through various tins looking for a fit, I've met with some success and some not so. With that said, this tin could well be the best I've encou... Read Morentered to date. It burns very evenly and cooly with virtually no bitterness or tongue bite all the way to the bottom of the bowl, no matter which pipe I light up. I truly enjoy the taste and an easy draw creates beautiful billows of white smoke with every puff. The room note is a delight as well. If you like tins like Ashton's Guilty Pleasure or Solani's Sweet Mystery, I would absolutely suggest giving this one a try. Read Less

This was one of my first tobacco purchases when I picked up my pipe again last year. It was an easy blend to like and it helped me start my journey to the wonderful and flavorful world of non-aromatics.

Candy For Your Pipe

When opening the tin I was hit with a sweet, fruity rummy smell. I just wanted to eat it! It was a little damp first smoke so I dried it for a bit and had 3 more bowl over the course of 4 hours. When I smoked the first bowl it was like taking a bi... Read Morete of a delicious fruit cake that had the perfect amount of sweetness and none of those gross candied fruit bits. Very strong top note and the casing is very sweet and slightly spicy. The flavors get stronger as you go. Near the end of the bowl it gets a little cigar taste and loses a bit of its furit sweetness flavor from the concentrated tobacco oils. All in all a good smoke but not an everyday smoke as it can be a little overwhelming on the pallate Read Less

This blend has a wonderful medley of flavors. It is slightly too sweet and fruity for me through the first third of the bowl. After that it is an enjoyable smoke.
