smooth
Very smooth, good alcohol taste. This stuff made me like virginias. Smoke it slow.

Bought a Dublin pipe dedicating it to just this tobacco.
I have to say that this pouch has and always will be my go-to tobacco. I can never go wrong with this one. Great pouch aroma, great room note, an all-around all-day smoke. The whiskey flavor comes out predominant at the beginning of the bowl. The second half the flavor morphs into an amazing true Virginia flavor. Retro-hale is outstanding! Buy this one for St. Patty's Day and you will never regret it.

Smooth mellow flavour
I enjoy many very different tobaccos, but I always have the Irish pouch handy.

It's okay
Tastes a little like it smells. I like it more than most virginia blends. Near perfect moisture too.

Morning smoke with coffee
Nice mellow smoke, perfect for early morning in my rocking chair on the porch. Watch the sun come up, then the birds feed. As soon as I light my pipe, the birds appear, knowing there's fresh seed in the feeders. My dog Henry and I love to watch them. It's a great way to start the day.

Erin Go Bragh,
Excellent pipe tobacco. I also tried the small rolled mini cigas and fell in love with them!

Irish Dew
It's okay. Wanted something with a bit more aroma. I believe that my pipe is bad.

Not bad
Not bad but not great, bought this as part of the “Killer Instict” sampler, I’d give it 3-3.5 stars, I honestly thought the Erin Go Bragh Irish Whiskey was better.

'Your heart will be happy and your pocket will always have a coin or two inside'
I've taken some liberties with an old Irish proverb to make a point about EGB tobacco: it is extremely pleasant and an extremely good value. I can't think of another 'value priced' tobacco that offers so much flavor, body and quality. The whiskey top note is more evident at the start of the bowl, but it does linger a bit throughout. Another point: I am almost exclusively an English blend smoker but EGB is just about the only aromatic that I have on hand on a regular basis.

My favourite sofar!
First, the smell from the tobacco in the satchel is phenomenal. Brings you right to old Ireland. Then, it is a wonderfully perfumed smoke, no bitter after taste, and last quite a long time. Easy to pack in the pipe, this tobacco is very well cut indeed. Non-pipe people have complimented the aroma I leave behind when I draw a puff near them. So it must be something. All and all, I highly recommend this lovely tobacco.

A new "all day" favorite.
A new favorite. Not often I find a new "reliable". Irish Dew has gone onto that list after the first pouch. No heavy flavors. Very cool burning for me. A very solid staple. The mix of nut from the burley and the clean straw of the virgina do me right.
5 out of 5
My go too.
I do try others but by far this it my go too.

tongue bite?
Seems to have a bit of tongue bite to me. Flavour is actually good, but like I said a bit of bite. Also may be a bit high in nicotine, though of course I don't have any chemical basis for determining that, it seemed to make me a bit lightheaded.

A good, cool, flavorful tobacco. A pleasant end of the day smoke.

Erin Go Bragh Pipe Tobacco Review
Smooth taste...no distinct aroma...meh.
5 out of 5
One of my faves!
What can I say - it's Peterson. Also like their Wild Atlantic. Old world style tobaccos that do not need to hide behind casings.
5 out of 5
Erin Go Bragh is a favorite for good reason.
Very nice smoke. Easy burn and stays lit. Also delivers a very nice room note.

Not a fan
Hmm, this one is not for me I guess. This is my first venture in to aromatics. The pouch note is good, but I am detecting very little of the 'whiskey' flavor and what is there is pretty two dimensional. The actual tobacco flavor is almost non existent. I enjoy robust and full flavor tobaccos so maybe this is just too mild. As a disclaimer, I am smoking this out of a Wessex pipe that I have smoked a good deal of Latakia from. So, I will seal up the pouch and try it again out of a fresh cob or something down the road. But for the time being I will not be buying any more of this and I can't recommend it. I would say either try a different aromatic or spend the money on good English or Va/Per blends with deep flavor and character.

Peterson Irish Dew
A strong aroma straight out the pouch. Very moist and textured tobacco. Smokes well but doesn't keep the flavor past the first few draws. I am a first time pipe smoker and would seriously need to sample others to give a good review though.
4 out of 5
Peterson Irish Dew - relatively simple, but wholesome and pleasant.
Nice and toasty, nutty flavors from the Burley combined with sweet, creamy, tea-like notes from the Virginia, with a light topping of tangy , honeyed Irish whiskey, which is more distinctive in the pouch than in the draw. Burns evenly, a wee bit warm but not hot. I quite like the long, broken flake cut - not only does it look pretty; it packs easily and burns exceedingly well. No delights on my first bowl (smoked in a handmade beechwood churchwarden pipe I purchased from Ukraine). Would go well with a glass of Tullamore Dew or Paddy. I'll probably buy more later on, but I wish it were sold by the ounce.

Erin Go Bragh
Great battle. I prefer the Erin Go Bragh, but do like the nice mature Virginia tobacco in the Irish Dew. The flavor in Erin Go Bragh just won me over in the end. Without a doubt, these two are both contenders, but in the end, it comes down to preference. I smoked both of these tobaccos out of similar cob pipes from Missouri Meerschaum to get a good clear flavor. Both are pretty nice. I just prefer the Erin Go Bragh more.

Nice Smoke!
Irish Dew is a really nice tonacco. it has a great aroma and puts out tons of smoke. If you like a mild, sweet, fruity tobacco, then this ones for you.

Overall, not a bad smoke, but it was not as mild as my usual brand. I found that it did bite a little.

A winner
Super. I usually like my whiskey in a glass and not in pipe tobacco, however I find this to me a great blend. I like to try different blends all the time, but this one will be one of the few buy again blends.

Smooth and invigorating.
This is a very smooth, yet charismatic tobacco. My go to favorite has always been black Cavendish. I've recently adventured out into burley's, Latakia's, and Virginian's. Erin Go Bragh Erin Go Bragh has been a pleasant surprise. Mellow, provocative, and very enjoyable. I will definitely be adding this to my list of "go to" tobacco.

Very Nice Tobaccos
A very nice smooth tobacco. Slightly sweeter that the Irish Dew, the Cav I suspect. But compared to American tastes are when talking aromatic, not even. The Irish Dew was a little less sweet, therefore dryer snd cooler smoking; again, hardly aromatic by yankee standards. I think I prefer it iver the two. The Peterson pipe I got with the special along with the pouch of each was a grest deal, and a fine smoking pipe.

Luck of the Irish
This is a fine tobacco, with a pleasant aroma. The initial taste took a moment to get used to, but like ripping back a glass of Whiskey for the first time in a long time, it immediately became smoother each draw. I would suggest to anyone to give it a try.

Great
Great tasting! Loved it and will buy more.

Tasteless
I was expecting much more from this tobacco, however I found it tasteless and boring. The pouch note was tobacco forward with sweet notes of honey, but it didn't translate to the smoke. I'm going to add some blending perique to this and jar it up for a while to see if that helps it.
2 out of 5
Not good at all.
Really not what I was expecting from reading the description. Was more like a bland English then a tasty aromatic. I won't order it again.

Standard Scandinavian Tobacco Group Quality
This is a soft-bodied tobacco; like any aromatic, it will burn a touch hot if you puff away like a blacksmith with a vengeance. However, if you use a nice briar pipe with a modicum of pacing this a rewarding pouch. The whiskey serves to provide a nice after glow and satisfactory room note - though, this probably won't draw amazing reviews from those around you, at least nothing like a pure Cavendish is liable to elicit (e.g. "That's the best thing I've ever smelled!" - not a likely review from the wife). One important note: the Virginias definitely shine through by the half-way point of the smoke; this is the sign of a good leaf. The burleys do complement the whiskey well and provide a balanced, enjoyable smoke. If you are searching for a mouthful of flavor, look elsewhere; if you want a super cool smoke, stop looking at aromatics and maybe consider a nice proper English. However, if you want relaxation with a friendly and soothing whiskey undertone, try this with a glass of Johnny Walker Blue on the rocks. I call this a book tobacco; perfect for a late night with a good book or an afternoon with the fishing pole. In the Euro pack, this is the middle sister, with John Bull leading the pack (as a fine albeit mild representative of the English tobaccos) and Cest La Vie falling short of its Vanillacentric rivals over at Sutliff and Mac Baren.

Pretty good! Mild with a definite whiskey flavor. A great smoke to have when working around the house.

Delicious. Smooth, Mellow smoke with nice subtle sweetness. I detect whiskey and a bit of vanilla cream flavor. Smells great in the pouch and a nice room note. 5 stars, I will be buying this one again.

TRY IT!
What I really love about this blend is that it keeps it's flavor from first light till end of bowl. Leaves nothing but fine ash. I've found that all the other aromatic smokes I have tried smell great in the tin, taste great the first few puffs but then lose flavor and just taste flavorless. I'm still new to pipe smoking but this is my observation so far. Trying to get into English but it's a bit tricky atleast on my pallet. If you're new to pipes, or just haven't tried it, jump on a pouch of this, and grab a tin of Peterson University Flake while you're at it. It's my favorite, I've been searching for one I like more, thier 3P's is awesome, but university is where it's at. IMHO That is.

a delight. gentle easy smoke with very pleasant aromatic

Just smoke slow and enjoy
Great smoke. I'm not really one for aromatics, I believe this the only one I'm keeping on hand. As others have said, it can burn a bit hot. I only smoke this one in cobs, as I've found it smokes cooler than in my briars. Looking forward to trying in a meerschaum once I pick one up. Definitely worth a try.

Fell in love with this a couple years ago
I fell in love with this stuff a couple years ago. I had recieved it in my double down monthly shipment and set it aside, i dont usually care for the tobaccos that are in a pouch. Several months later i finally decided to give it a try, just so i could throw it away with a clear conscience. And wow i was floored, it was not only good it was heaven. I smoked up both pouches in no time and when i decided it was going to be my go to tobacco, i was devastated p&c was no longer selling it. Im glad its back. And I intend to stock up, i highly recommend you fill your bowl with this just once, you're going to love it.

Erin Go Bragh
Upon my order of Erin Go Bragh I was very optimistic in hopes of finding a new pleasing blend. However upon my first bowl I discovered that this is not the smoke for me. But in order to give it my best attempt I continued to light up. I found it to be much hotter and harsh than the types I am accustom to. It actually blistered the roof of my mouth! I haven't experienced that since the early days of pipe smoking 30+ years ago.

Well worth the wait...
I ran out of my tobacco sometime ago and I checked to see if they were going to restock. When I received the email it was back, it took me no time to put in my order. This really has great flavors. My Grandfather and Uncle would have truly enjoyed a pipe full.

Go Bragh!
Mild and lightly flavored, rich tobacco smell in the package. Great room note (wife and daughter like it WAY more than my English blends)and burns well for an aromatic. Give it a try if you don't like overly an overly cased smoke.

oh that smell!
The aroma is great, the taste is nice but not as nice as it smells. Can smoke a little hot to me sometimes, but I seem to be more sensitive to heat than others. I like it though. I smoke it when English blends might not be appreciated by others.

St. Patrick's Day every day!
Boy, was I delighted to see Erin Go Bragh back in stock! I have been trying to get some of this tobacco for a long time. My experience with it started with the delightful smell of Irish Whiskey followed by the high grades of tobacco in support. I plan to keep this in my rotation and hope that it would be offered in a larger tin some day. As usual P & C got this stuff to me very fast and it is always appreciated.

Irish, Yes
This tobacco has grown on me. At first it seemed too neutral, somewhat boring, mono. But I am enjoying it more with every bowl. It almost comes across to me as a menthol, with the Irish Whisky. But then there is the chocolate. It's not a heavy, goopy, aero. But one of a more European light flavoring, Virginian forward, though I do get a hint of burly nutty, mostly in the room note. At first I thought no, but after finishing one pouch, would I buy more, yes. I'm not an aro fan, sticking mostly with ropes, flakes, and cakes, but I like it!

My New Favorite Tobacco
This is the best I have smoked so far. It is much more flavorful then Dunhill Ready Rubbed. A lot of the Virginia's give me a really smoky after taste, but this one does not. I also LOVE Burley. This is my new favorite tobacco. I wouldn't have called it an aromatic tobacco because there honestly doesn't seem to be much flavoring added. The cut of this tobacco is very pleasant as well. It keeps the perfect moisture level and I enjoy the pouch rather then a tin because its easier to take with you and I imagine it keeps the cost of manufacturing down. I highly recommend giving this one a try. I generally don't enjoy the more "straight" Virginia's, but this one is greatly enhanced by the Burley.
3 out of 5
Light Aromatic
This is a very mild aromatic if that is what you have to call it. The whisky and fruit toppings are so mild that they are almost unnoticeable, and for the most part, all I get are the natural sweet flavors of the Virginia tobaccos. I would say that this is an ok aromatic and I would call this an ok Virginia burley blend, but it is not stellar in either category. As for the tobacco, it appears to be a quality Virginia burley blend with no twiggy or hard bits mixed in with it. It packs easily due to the cut and takes a light well, as the moisture level is almost perfect. This is not a gloopy or wet aromatic by any means. Flavor profile was again mild on the aromatic front and mainly seemed to me to be that of sweet Virginias with hay like or grassy notes being the predominant flavor. I was not able to really detect any of the nutty flavors usually associated with burley tobaccos during my smoke, which leads me to believe that this is a Virginia forward blend. The room note was described to me by those in the room as slightly sweet and grassy. All in all, a decent smoke, but a hard one to place in a specific category, for me at least. A decent tobacco that you may want to sample for yourself if you want a light aromatic with more of the Virginia flavors. Remember that all reviews are subjective, and everyone will experience the tobacco differently.

Give it a try!
I was pleasantly surprised by this tobacco, I received it first as a free sample when I purchased a Peterson pipe. Now, this tobacco will be in my regular rotation. Thanks P&C!

Light Whiskey Blend
I was expecting a stronger whiskey note, but this is quite subtle. It's a light blend and smokes very well with hardly any bite to it. It's more flavorful than Peterson's Irish Whiskey and would be nice as an all day smoke.

Unique Tasty Blend
Another quality blend from Peterson. Kind of a unique tasty blend, but not bad. It's texture an cut is different than what I'm use to, but I may order this again. Thank you.
