As the name suggests, Peterson Sweet Killarney is a full-tasting and very sweet aromatic. This tobacco should be smoked slowly and is best enjoyed by someone who appreciates a caramel cream melting on your tongue--both the smell and the taste will remind you of eating that milky brown candy.

Perfect Taste! If you like sweet aromatic tobacco you must get this one!
It is a decent smoke. The tin note is caramel. The smoke is a light sweet caramel. Just an average blend for me. This one tin will last a long time since it's average, I will only be smoking it on occasion.
This tobacco was excellent! Smokes cool and rich with notes of walnut, and vanilla, with that peppery bite on the end of the flavor profile. Folks don't mind the odor either. Just sayin'...
First time I smoked 'Sweet Killarney' I found myself trying to eat the smoke. It smells that delicious. The tobacco packs well, burns cool and leaves a white ash. I have this in my rotation for those times I want to treat myself with something yummy. Kudos to Peterson!
This is the second Peterson tobacco I've had the pleasure to smoke (Irish Dew was my first;-) . "Sweet Killarney" is touted as having a caramel flavor, and it does, especially from about midway thru the smoke. But to me, the major flavor is a kind of cross between plum and fig. This is especially noticeable when smelling the tobacco from the tin, but it comes thru in the smoke, too. Yet, this tobacco is not cloyingly sweet, like some of the other highly aromatic blends. There is sweetness here, but it is well-balanced. This is a very satisfying after-dinner evening smoke. It may not be for everyone (die-hard lovers of non-aromatics may not care for this), but of the more highly aromatic blends I've tried over the years, "Sweet Killarney" may be the best. I think it's just plum good!
