In the tin, Sweet Killarney looks a mix of black and gold Cavendish with some brighter yellow Virginia leaf. The tin aromas are pretty much as advertised-a pleasant vanilla custard nose with caramelized accents. Creme Caramel? Well…el are provided by little more than caramelized sugar and vanilla. The bowl I’m smoking right now is not especially nippy, but it is decidedly short on the intensity of flavor I expect from a good aromatic. And therein lies the problem with this stuff: there are far better similarly flavored aromatics available made from higher quality tobacco and displaying much better smoking characteristics.
To my mind, Sweet Killarney fits into the great bulky middle of the aromatic quality hierarchy. It doesn’t approach the excellence of a handful of the genre but is also far from being genuinely unpleasant.
It’s a nice enjoyable smoke but I generally prefer more strenght and flavor
This the second Peterson aromatic I’ve tried and i didn’t enjoy it as much as Golden Blend, thye first. This blend is a vanilla flavored aromatic that smells good enough to eat out of the tin. When smoked, the “caramel” flavor translates into a slight, sweet taste of vanilla that stays throughout the bowl. The underlying tobaccos are nice and smooth virginias and burley.
My notes tell me that I found the first couple of bowls a little short and undefined as far as flavor goes and a little tongue nippy, too
I like some Peterson tobaccos very well. This is one that was just “ok” to me, the tin aroma is wonderful, the room note is light but pleasant. it bit me pretty badly, but then I’m still a fairly new pipe smoker. I will finish the tin, but will likely let my next bowl dry a little first.
I bought it because of the name and my experience with Peterson tobaccos. Sweet aroma from the tin and throughout the room.
Somehow the wonderful caramel aroma from the tin never made it through the pipe. It had a decent tobacco flavor, but I was looking for more of the aroma from the tin to get to me.
The usual dampness I get from Peterson’s. I aired it and tried it, aired it till it burned warm and still could not get a taste I liked.
I bought a tin of this because of the name Peterson. And, I’ve been looking for that illusive tobacco that is both aromatic and full of taste. I assumed that Peterson could put together a good aromatic. They didn’t on this brand. The tobacco packed well and the moisture level was a little high. Even with the high moisture, the stuff lighted up reasonably well. There was never a need for a re-light. The tin aroma matched the smoke aroma. There was the smell of caramel and honey. There was also a fruity essence to the taste. These are the positives. The first thing one notices is that the caramel taste does not transfer to the smoke. The second thing you find is that the taste flattens out when the sugars burn off and there is nothing left but the tobacco. By this time, you note the lack of nicotine. Some may consider this a positive, but I do not. Finally, there is serious tongue-bite. The stuff just gets hotter and hotter! I have mentioned that the taste disappears, but that out of heat. There are some aromatics I enjoy and you do have to know how to enjoy them, but wow! For the price, with a https://hookupdate.net/escort-index/rialto/ prestigious name, and from a smoker who enjoys aromatics, you should look elsewhere. I have had some Smoker’s Pride that behaved better!
