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

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.

    Peterson "Early Morning Pipe"

    Very mellow, mild flavor, with a fairly substantial nicotine hit toward the end. Can run a little hot if you work it too hard.

    Classic

    Does this tobacco need another review when there are already 38 that average to a 5 star? Yes. Yes, it does. Especially if it helps get more in stock so I can get more tins in my stash. This early morning musty hay smell is delightful at any time of day. Not the lightest of blends but on the lighter side - my preference. Delicious. I'm with the crowd on this one.

    Excellent mix

    Excellent mix, although I feel that the Virginias need to age, smooth and with a good room, totally recommended for beginners and for those who want a fresh mix.
