The only sensible way to elevate the BriarWorks tobacco company was to add a line of quality boutique pipe tobaccos to their repertoire. Pete's Beard is a true medium bodied blend made from only two components: Latakia and Virginia. While this tobacco is flavorful enough to give the smoker a taste of the high life, it is gentle enough to be appreciated by all smokers. We suggest pairing this tobacco with a cup of black coffee, or decaf, depending on the time of day.

This is definitely not a 3/5 to my palette. It's a 1/5 in strength of flavour as well as nicotine hit, maybe a 1.5.
That being said, it's a pleasant experience. For anyone who's never had an English blend and wants to experience the latakia at a very mild level; or for someone who's looking for an all day English, this might satisfy that itch.
For English blend smokers I would compare it to Nightcap without that hint of perique, and a tin that's been aged to let the flavours mellow out significantly. *Significantly*
Good smoke, good price, good service.
