I am a sailor who often smokes at the yacht club or out on a boat. I have smoked this blend in both my savinelli churchwarden and an artisan Becker and Musicó pipe from Italy. This is an incredibly well burning, easy to pack product, despite how dry and chunky it may seam out of the tin. It burns evenly and smoothly and live sup to the Peterson's reputation. In terms of flavor, I would like to have tasted the maple and rum flavor more but on the account of my love of cigars, I love it. A must try for any cigar aficionado. The mahogany taste is very strong and it is a truly lovely tobacco.
I was surprised to find that this was a Lakeland blend. It was my first experience with a Lakeland. Its easily the most unique blend I've had and I cant stop thinking about it. I did not get any of the maple or rum in the smoke, but I didn't really care. This is something that every pipe smoker should try.
