Tin note: outstanding, just like peach cobbler.

Cut is nice and loose, very easy to pack. My tin was not overly cased or damp. The blend of Virgina, burley and cavendish is well balanced; I wish there was more cavendish and less burley, as I tend to smoke pretty fast and always get bit (but this is my own stupid fault). It smokes fine, down to white ash; I always get dottle but again, I smoke too fast and it doesn’t really bother me.

This is a nice aromatic if you want a fruit flavor that is not the standard cherry. The taste is pretty light, so I was a little disappointed that it didn’t taste as good as it smelled. It bored me petty quick; after half the tin, I put it on the shelf for 8 months. When I smoke it now, the peach taste is much stronger, so I would definitely recommend aging this for a while. To Sutliff’s credit, their little tins really do keep the baccy fresh for a long time, I have had good luck with popping them open for a whiff, then letting them sit for a few months.
