American Blend Peach Pipe Tobacco Review

American Blend Peach Pipe Tobacco

Aroma
On opening my new 12gms pouch of American Blend Peach pipe tobacco I’m hit by a pleasant mix of expensive chocolates and peach liqueur not dissimilar to that of entering a Lush Cosmetics store (albeit less intense). Very slightly artificial but I think it compliments the tobacco well.

Texture
Dark in appearance and coarsely cut, it packed well into my greedy briar. It burned well and stayed lit without relights however when reaching the bottom of the bowl gurgled slightly and left a small puddle. Successive bowls produced a small amount of gurgle and puddles regardless of how intensely the bowl was puffed. This however was at the very end of the bowls and didn’t effect my enjoyment of the tobacco.

Taste
The peach was apparent even though on my first bowl my pipe was slightly ghosted by an earlier bowl of Clan Aromatic. Successive bowls brought through the intensity of the peach. Enthusiastic puffing did result in a bit of tongue bite, but this was at the very end of the bowl. The taste developed over the course of the bowl with the peach becoming less intense as the tobacco diminished in the pipe.

Overall Rating
Overall I give American Blend Peach a 4 out of 5. Trial and error will tell if you can avoid the puddle at the end of the bowl and as such may not be the best choice for beginners. If starting on this tobacco use a dedicated pipe and take it S-L-O-W.

    I stared with arcimtaos about 8 months ago. The first two tobaccos I bought were the Macbaren vanilla cream, and the chocolate and honey. The chocolate actually smells like chocolate when you open the tin. It burns cooler than the vanilla. The vanilla cream smells sweeter than the chocolate but burns a bit hotter and you could get tong bite if you are not careful. I recommend both. Consider Tinderbox house blends like the Wilshire which smokes cooler than the others I mention, and

        Next time you get a tobacco that you astulobely cannot stand feel free to send it out my way lol. I’m just a poor college student trying to maintain the hobby while working 40 hours a week and going to school full time. (Is my sad story persuading you?) lol

    Carter Hall Rocks! best flavor, nutty belury and mild sweet virginias balanced just right. I keep going back to it. Carter Hall is one of the best! I have to disagree with the comment you made the nicoteen is almost non-existent . Carter Hall has a NICE nicotene punch. You have been smoking Irish Black Twist X too long,lol.

      I like using canning jars. I smoke a lot of peeorstn’s and the tins just dont keep it fresh enough for me. The canning jars make a great seal, last for ever, and you can peal labels off and put them on the top or write it in marker to keep track of you have many blends.
