Brand: Peterson's Sherlock Holmes, blended by Kohlhase, Kopp & Co. Tin Description: An old 19th century blend of Orange and Red smoking leaf, Brazilian Burley, and Virginia Mysore Indian tobacco. Contents: Air cured/ribbon cut Burley, Virginia, Oriental tobaccos in a 50g Tin. When I first opened the tin, my nose was greeted with a delicate aroma, kind of like sweet apricot tea. It's for sure an aromatic, but a light one. The tin note does not match the room note, but both are very enjoyable and neither reminds me of candy soup (unlike many other aromatics). The tobacco is a little moist (but not too bad),and it dries out very nicely after about a week. It's a mild to medium strength smoke, with a mild dose of Vitamin N, and the various tobaccos used in it play very nicely with one another but I think the Virginias take center stage. At first, I thought that this was a very good smoke but not necessarily anything I'd go out of my way to reorder anytime soon. However, having now smoked multiple bowls of this blend, I've come to the conclusion that this is a really wonderful blend. It makes for a great Saturday and Sunday morning pipe, when I don't feel rushed to get ready for work and can just sit back in my smoking chair with a bent Country Gentlemen corncob pipe and a cup of black coffee, and just enjoy the morning. I like it so much, I've devoted a Country Gentlemen exclusively to this blend - a tin or two of which will be on hand at all times. I've seen some pretty bad reviews of this blend on Tobacco Review, but I think those reviewers were being a bit unfair to this delightful blend. This is not a sexy blend, it's a traditional/conservative blend and the trick to getting it is to sit back and sip it. If you want an exotic blend that will take you rocketing into the stratosphere, look elsewhere because this will probably disappoint. This is a blend that needs to be enjoyed for what it is, and not panned because it's something it was never intended to be. What it is for me is a wonderful blend that possesses an understated elegance that I prefer in my tobies, especially in my morning smoke.
