    C&D Manhattan Afternoon in a Peterson 999 Racing Green

    Brand: Cornell & Diehl

    Blender: Craig Tarler

    Tin Description: Naturally sweet Golden Virginia leaf with a drop of honey sliced into flakes.
    Country of Origin: US

    Curing Group: Flue Cured

    Contents: Virginia
    Flavoring: Honey

    Cut: broken Flake

    Packaging: 2oz Tin

    Blend Notes: Part of the Simply Elegant Series

    This is another one of those simple yet favorites of mine with Virginia and honey. Tin was aged for 6 months and I am almost out already. The paper in the tin is stained dark brown from the fermenting and still has that almost beer/meade smell still. Even with the honey topping this is sweet but not overly sweet and being a broken flake have rubbed it out and dryed for 1 hour about. Plenty of smoke with the burn and little bite but I am sipping gingerly. The pipe is cool and that is what I like about the 999 shape of Petersons. Great flake pipe. There isnít a great complexity here just simple virginas with some sweetness to it. I would say this is a great beginner tobacco since it is simple but tasteful to a younger palette.

    Virginias, with their pleasant natural sweetness, are really growing on me. The added honey sounds interesting. While I'm far from a beginner (around 20 years of pipe smoking), I guess I am a VA beginner. I'll have to put this on my list. Thanks for the review.

    BTW- I'm jealous of that pipe. A Rosslare, Racing Green, or Irish Sea will probably be my next Pete.
