Early Morning Pipe by Peterson is considered a standard of measure for what a light English blend should be by a large number of experienced pipers.  The flavor is sour, sweet, and tangy more than smoky.  Because of the balance of the constituent tobaccos, the smoker is able to discern subtle flavors. 

Brand: Peterson

Blended By: STG

Model: Early Morning 

Tobacco Type: Latakia, Oriental, Virginia

Cut: Ribbon

Blend Type: English

Strength: 2 of 5

Taste: Medium

Room Note: Pleasant

Flavoring: None

Amount: 1.75 oz Tin


What is in it?
This blend is an English mixture which has been pressed and stoved.  This blend uses the following tobaccos.
Latakia: Cyprian Latakia is present in a small amount.
Oriental: The Oriental tobacco seems to be mostly Turkish.
Virginia: The Virginia here seems to be of the Red and Lemon varieties.
What does it smoke like?
Early Morning Pipe is considered a benchmark English blend by many.  This is a lighter flavor than you may find in some other blends.  No one component is the center of attention here.  The blend is flavorful, and it seems to be very balanced and well rounded.  The taste is dry in the same manner as some wines are dry.  Since the latakia is very lightly added, one should expect a sweet and tangy flavor with very little dark smokiness.  A consistent blend that could be smoked all day, this would make an ideal introduction to English blends.  Similar blends would include Presbyterian Mixture and SG Squadron Leader.
How to prepare it?
Peterson uses a beautiful medium ribbon cut for many of their blends.  This loads into a pipe very easily.  A brief drying is recommended but the tobacco is certainly smokable as is.  Use a lighter pack for maximum flavor, and tamp at regular intervals.

    Early Morning Pipe is my All Day Tobacco

    Posted by MICHAEL FRENCH,RN on 21st May 2020

    I ordered a tin of Early Morning and a tin of Nightcap. I’ve never tried what is considered an English blend. First, the art on the tin is great, just like the Dunhill of the same name. I opened the tin and blam, the heavenly aroma of Latakia and Orientals, and more blended beautifully. No drying out time was needed. I packed my Peterson Aran XL90 I bought from and lit it up. The clouds parted, Angels began to sing...seriously, this blend is perfect. On strength, I give it a 3. Not too much, but just right. This is truly a great example of an English blend that a smoker could smoke who has never tried such a blend. This is so good, I’m getting more. This just made my daily rotation. I’m gonna cellar a few tins. I’ll bet after 5 years or so, this would really be great. Early Morning Pipe tobacco, now from Peterson, is not just for breakfast. It’s on the menu all day long. Thanks, Peterson for keeping this blend going.

    Early Morning Redux

    Posted by Michael on 12th May 2020

    Having only recently opened a long-saved tin of Dunhill Early Morning Pipe, liking it but only to find it had been unavailable for some time, I was delighted to see that Peterson had acquired the label. I purchased two tins, and am happy to report that it seems identical to the Dunhill mix. The Dunhill tin I had saved for a special occasion for over seven years. Glad I did, as it allowed for close comparison with the Peterson mix. Recommended for fans of the Dunhill mix. No disappointment here. It's especially satisfying in my small bowl Peterson Tanzanika meerschaum, and how fitting! Kudos to Peterson.

    This is the one. Aromatic smoke is great but I wanted satisfaction a cigar brings without the drama. Very mild In temperament but very satisfying. I’ve since come to love Peterson Elizabethan, 965 blend, etc, but this is my golden standard.

    I just enjoyed my first ever bowl of Early Morning Pipe Tobacco in my new Missouri Meerschaum St. Patrick’s Day Pipe with a cup o coffee as recommended by so many from the YTPC. It is a smooth blend that can start or end anyone's day off right. So glad it’s back.
