Tin Description: Black Cavendish, combined with golden and dark Virginia in different cuts and a large proportion of hand rubbed Virginia flake, makes this a wonderful blend. Experience the summer on your palate with this superb pipe tobacco offering a rich aroma of delicious peach and a hint of vanilla and juicy melons. This blend has a lovely mellow taste and a very pleasant room note.

 

While the tin aroma was astounding on this one, the smoke itself did not quite reach the full flavor profile of the scent. Do not be deterred, however, as this mélange does deliver a refreshing aromatic experience with its unique combination of peach, vanilla and melon.

 

Tin: Peterson excels, and only gets better, at its tin presentations for the seasonal blends. The lighthearted artwork of grilling implements and a pipe in a field of grass sets the tone for this blithely indulgent mixture. A characteristically Peterson mottle of dark & light leaf in ribbon, flake and cube cuts is a bit muted compared to the saturated colors of the Holiday 2010 blend. The tin aroma is redolent of peach and melon, and will make the mouth water in anticipation.

 

Char: On the char the fruity flavors jump to life, and one would be well-advised to partake of this with a tall glass of unsweet iced tea, a back porch and 80-degree weather to gain the full experience. Like opening a jar of peach preserves, with earthy grass & dandelion wine undertones.

 

Top: The topping, for all its exquisite accuracy in reproducing the aroma of melon and peach, burns off rather quickly. Fortunately one is left with a very good tobacco, particularly the Virginia flake. Its sweetness and depth carry the blend after the light, and the smoke takes on a more casual fruity vanilla, caramel and toffee stance.

 

Mid: The mid-bowl will reveal more of the base components of the mix, albeit with limited interplay of flavor. The Cavendish is a sturdy base for the bright and flake Virginias, and the fruity caramel notes persist on a very good balance between casing and pure tobacco flavors.

 

Finish: In its finer moments the smoke has taken on a haunting quality of the memory of summers past, and finishes to the bottom with little dottle. Light enough to smoke several bowls through, and quite pleasant for your companions.

 

Room Note: Bystanders will be cordially intrigued by the aroma of the smoke, and though it does not hit the tin note exactly, it is a delectable fume of fruity sweetness that will be appreciated by all.

 

Overall: While a unique take on an aromatic, it does not reach the heights of brilliance that other Peterson offerings have. It is, however, a Peterson blend, and the quality of the tobacco is not to be underestimated—all in all a fine smoke, if not one for the hall of fame.

 

RATING: 3.3
