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.

Smokes like a dream with coffee
Not Amazing, Not Terrible. Bought some to see what the hype was about. For me... I wasn't impressed. It wasn't bad, but nothing stood out and made me want another bowl. WIll use this a filler and mixed with other blends.
Very good English blend. No bite, in fact I can't find that it has anything that isn't good. Great nuty flavor, could easy be an all day smoke.
Used it for years, first when it was Dunhill. Mix it with Nightcap for an all-day smoke.
I know this is rated highly by many smokers. I'm not one of them. I've tried it many times and I just don't see it. I think who likes what in a lot of cases just comes down to body chemistry. This does not suit mine. I get none of the flavors I hear everyone else reviewing. Even just "puffing" and unlit bowl of this has an unpleasant oily taste/scent. For me it's like smoking a bowl full of black pepper. It just burns and tastes acrid. No enjoyment whatsoever. The harshest cigar I've ever had tastes better than this. I know none of these are direct comparisons, but I like English Luxury, Proper English, Arango Balkan Supreme, plum pudding, etc. This I just can't do. I don't feel "bad" giving this a negative review, as so many other people like it, I know my review probably won't dissuade anyone from trying it, but now I'll have to read through other reviews to see if anyone shares my opinion. Happy smoking!
Another excellent English style pipe tobacco, just one star below Old Dublin. Give it a try.
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.
Morning, noon, night, good anytime of the day IMHO. great flavor and no bite! I for one will keep this tin top shelf.
