A unique mixture of selected tobaccos including golden Virginia and black cavendish, topped with a cream caramel flavor. To make this wonderful tobacco even more attractive, it is blended with hand-rubbed Virginia flake which results in a fantastic aroma.
After 20+ years a pipe smoker I have tried many tobaccos and pipes. I do not sell, or work in the tobacco industry. To provide this review a base-line: My favorite is Full English Tobacco loaded in a medium Meerschaum Pipe. My second choice is Nougat blended bulk. I enjoy the slight lingering effect of Nougat in the Meerschaum Pipe when smoking the next bowel of Full English. Also, I prefer a $ Meerschaum over any $ Briar in my collection.
In my first paragraph I attempt to provide a baseline description of my pallet
Contrary to all the Peterson hating review posted here, SWEET KILLARNEY is a wonderful aromatic with a pleasantly sweet flavor. The nut-to-nougat-to-light-vanilla flavoring is ever lasting to the end of the smoke. Most aromatics tend to bite and must be lightly puffed. My vitamin N seeking habit is to draw hard. I can easily suffer a bite from cased aromatics. However, drunk or sober, SWEET KILLARNEY has never yet bit my tongue.
I must take a stand for truth in these reviews. I have learned that If they post too much raving hate of https://www.hookupdate.net/escort-index/oakland/ a blend than, I should rush to try some. LOL…
IMHO, a true evaluation of SWEET KILLARNEY was given by Franklin-Ryan who said, “The taste is soft and creamy with just a hint of fruit with the Virginias coming through stronger but not overwhelmingly at the end for a clean finish. No tongue bite at all even when in a hotter pipe after several smokes and the taste is consistent throughout the whole bowl. The room-note is soft and creamy too. It burns quite clean with a medium light ash and fairly little waste. Quite simply an excellent all day blend. The cool burning burly is well complimented by the Virginia flake and just the right amount of Cavendish to get the casing taste without the usual gurgling tongue biting side effects!”
UPDATE: After deeper thought, my remarks about truth may be too harsh. For that I apologize. Clearly, I am not a fan of aromatic tobacco. What makes SWEET KILLARNEY special to me is that it is not overpowering. It is not candy and does not punch you with perfume. So, SWEET KILLARNEY is a pleasant treat in my rotation.
As for the bite reported by others, it’s a mystery to me. Some filter pipes will cause bite and also make the chemical or soapy taste more evident in aromatics.
A SUGGESTION: Years ago I learned a trick that can sometimes prevent bite, chemical taste, or wet gurgle: Remove the filter (if any). Line the bottom of the pipe with small amount (? pinch) of a very dry Bright Virginia, thick ribbon cut. Top and smoke your desired tobacco but dump the ash before burning into the Bright Virginia. Reload over the Bright Virginia until it becomes unpleasant. This trick helps me smoke those failed samples we all collect. YMMV…
In my opinion: a few people on this board truly hate Peterson and have reported overly negative on more than one blend
POSITION: 20+ year smoker. I normally like Full English, Virginia, Latakia, some uncased cav blends. I smoke 3–6 pipes a day. No tobacco sales.
I first tried Sunset Breeze (the other aromatic in the Peterson aromatic series) and because it was way too sweet for me, I avoided trying Sweet Killarney for several months. I recently gave it a shot and was glad I did.
