The Virginias are earthy with a very light grassiness, mild citrus and stewed fruit, and an ever present hint of spice. The burleys are earthy, nutty, with a little molasses. It also has a slight toasty, woody quality. You can taste both varietals in nearly every puff, with the burleys occasionally being a little more prominent at times, especially in the last third of the bowl. The toppings have a light plum, but I notice the taste of fruity berries more often. After the half way point, it does diminish to some extent, but you'll taste it all the way through. The nic-hit is closer to medium than it is to mild, and seems to gain a little strength as you smoke away. The flakes are easy to manipulate as you please. Burns a little slow, and requires some relights, but not as many as you might expect. Won't bite even if you're a fast puffer, but I recommend a sipping pace to enhance the enjoyment the well balanced flavors. Leaves just a little moisture in the bowl, but no dottle. Has a very pleasant after taste with a nice room note. An all day smoke that doesn't wear out its welcome during the day.

Thanks for the review Jim. I assume it's recent production.

I first tried this about 10+ yrs ago and found the fruity toppings to be OTT to me and off-putting. Really put me off to this blend. Don't know if I even finished the tin.

Peterson blends have been pretty much hit or miss with me, mostly miss. Perhaps it's time to revisit.



Cheers,

RR

What I am smoking is a little over a year old. I like it, but I don't love it. As the topping isn't over the top (to me, anyway), I enjoy it. Btw, if you haven't tried Rotary Navy Flake, I greatly suggest trying that one. A very nice rum topping - not too strong, a little closer to medium than it is to mild - but the earthy, stewed dark fruit flavor of the dark Va. melds well with the rum.
