Peterson Gold Blend Pipe Tobacco 50g
The Nurnberg brothers Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, whose elegant Dublin tobacconist first opened for business in 1865 on Grafton Street, Dublin could scarcely have dreamt that they would participate in the birth of a legend.
Friedrich & Heinrich, who christened their shop simply ‘Kapp Brothers’, soon made a name for themselves making and selling quality Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. It was not long before Charles Peterson, walked into Kapp Brothers Grafton Street premises armed with a revolutionary pipe and ambitious plans for the future.
There and then, Peterson suggested that the brothers go into partnership with him to turn his pipe dream into the world’s dream pipe. They agreed and the company was renamed Kapp & Peterson. Kapp and Peterson went on to become Dublin’s most fashionable and respected manufacturer and purveyor of fine smoking products. Pipe and cigar smokers would stroll down to the elegant premises for professional advice on the subtle nuances that determine a good handmade cigar or pipe. The Peterson brand was embraced by politicians, business leaders, sportsmen, artists and writers.
The skills and craft which Charles Peterson applied to his original invention are continued by the dedicated team of craftsmen at Peterson today. Whether as a gift for a friend or for your own personal use, you will appreciate the excellence of the Peterson range of cigars, tobaccos, pipes and smoking accessories.
Peterson’s Gold Blend Pipe Tobacco is a gentle aromatic blend of Black Cavendish, Burley and Virginia.
Its flavouring is of vanilla, hickory nut and cinnamon but this does not overpower the flavour of the tobaccos.
When smoked, the notes of nuttiness from the Burley mingle with the casing and topping, giving a tastes that’s almost pecan like. There’s sweetness from the Virginias and vanilla and a slight spice and fruitiness coming from the cinnamon and Black Cavendish to give a nutmeg hint.
This tobacco is a contrast of blacks and golden browns and smells of caramel, fruit and spice. The cut is a shaggy ribbon that pack into the bowl well and smokes thoroughly. The room note is pleasant and has a sweet caramel nuttiness to it.
