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

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.

    On the recommendation of experts on YouTube

    This was recommended by more than one of the pipe smoking professors that I follow online. It is as advertised. Very pleasant morning smoke. Not overly flavored and doesn't burn to hot with breathing technique. For me it seemed higher in nicotine than other brands that I smoke. A great smoke overall, you won't go wrong if you try it.

    A great tobacco for the morning. Smooth and very satisfying. A blast from the past from Dunhill.

    Just getting into pipes from cigars. This was a good mild blend to start with. Read a lot of recommendations on this one, and have to say probably one I will stick up on.

    One of the best tobaccos I've ever tried. I've only been smoking a pipe for a month and I thought that I would like those strongly flavored aromatics so I ordered a lot of them and was disappointed. I tried Peterson's early morning pipe and it blew me away, very good tobacco. I found that I like aromatics with a light topping, the ones that have the topping caked on there suck

    Peterson has a good thing going and expect them to deliver some new product that will be even better for making your morning and day even better.
