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

Room Note: Pleasant

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.

    Another excellent English style pipe tobacco, just one star below Old Dublin. Give it a try.

    It's grown on me

    I really like this tin, it's a nice rotation with some of the sweeter blends. Great morning noon and evening. Great with tea and coffee. Something meditative and stimulating about the blend, without assaulting your senses.

    Try something new

    I ordered this because I wanted a milder version of their Nightcap blend, this did disappoint me. The gentle spice really does help clear the morning cobwebs, it's quite invigorating with your morning tea or coffee. I smoked it as slowly as possible and found it burns cleans and cool. I would recommend to those wanting something to contrast with sweeter blends and give variety.

    This is my usual daily smoke. It's a smooth smoke with a robust flavor that's easy on the tongue.

    Not just for mornings

    Posted by Richard Gress on 29th Oct 2022

    I returned to pipe smoking after 20 years, and one of several I’ve purchased is EMP. it is now at the top of my list, especially as my taste now runs to the mellower end of the spectrum. I already ordered my second can in case I run out.

    Pleasant first bowl blend

    Posted by Sam Brooks on 24th Sep 2022

    This is a very nice "first bowl" blend. I usually smoke my first one early evening, and this is a good starter before I move on to my favorite heavy English blends. I tend to like a lot of Latakia and Perique, and IMHO this could use a bit more of both. But that is just my personal preference - I definitely recommend this blend for an early smoke, or for new smokers.

    Meh. No Thanks.

    Posted by Alex Miller on 3rd May 2022

    I don't get what all the fuss is about. Seems very ordinary to me. Plain to even a little sub-par for my tastes. Lots of other options I much prefer.
