|Tobacco||Latakia, Oriental, Virginia|
|Room Note||4 - Distinct|
For all of the P&C Faithful who were concerned that Dunhill tobaccos had disappeared forever - good news! The blends are back using the same exact blends and tobaccos, coming from the same factory. The only thing that's different is that they are now under the Peterson name. Even the classic artwork remains.
Peterson Early Morning Pipe tobacco is one of the true classics. This blend starts with golden and red flue-cured tobaccos which are matured under pressure while heat is applied, deepening the flavor. Choice Oriental tobaccos are added for spice, and just enough Latakia is incorporated to give the blend a smokiness, with a hint of leather. Early Morning Pipe is a mellow tobacco that’s smooth and delicious, a perfect choice to start your day off, but packing enough flavor to enjoy any time of day. This ribbon-cut tobacco is lightly pressed and easily enjoyable. For a light English blend accompanied by sweet tobaccos, Early Morning Pipe is a superb Peterson selection.
Dry, bright, and simple. After enjoying a half of a tin, here are my notes: Tin note: dry leather baseball mitt mixed mixed with fresh leaf pile. My tin was over a year old, and was much less sharp than when first purchased. The best part of the bowl was after the first 1/4th, after which it took on a warm, faintly sweet flavor reminiscent of fire-roasted corn husks. When not patient, I got mild tongue bite from this mix. Please note that the bite was nothing like a scalding Captain Black chemical burn some of you may relate to from your tobacco adventures. This blend was meant to be sipped, not chased. EMP mixed very well with a shandy or a mimosa. It hid a medium nicotine buzz, which I enjoyed. While the name demanded a morning smoke, I preferred it mid-afternoon, on a bright, sunny day. The room note never got rave reviews from my girlfriend, who described it as "smoky and dry, almost cigarettey at first, then turning cigarish." Please note that she has been spoiled by my aromatics (lol). Unlike my aromatics, I observed the taste and room note improved greatly over the course of a bowl.

Great tobacco, perfect with a good cup of coffee
Until I got Dunhill Early Morning, I was mostly smoking aromatic blends. Since the first taste of Early Morning, though, this has become my "go-to" smoke. It seems like no matter what time of day, each bowl is perfect. If you're looking to get into English blends, this is probably the one to do it. It's not to harsh and offers the right amount of flavor. It packs quite well and smoke production are at the levels I prefer.
Speaking as a (novice) fan of English blends, I think this is a great anytime tobacco as it tends towards the mild side. Excellent humidity right out of the tin and smokes perfectly dry. For a mild English, it certainly merits the hype.
I wont try and describe the blend suffice to say it was very nice as the name imply s it is a nice morning smoke very smooth.
I really wanted to like this tobacco. It has a nice nicotine kick, but I find myself a bit repulsed by the leather aftertaste.
Great first bowl of the day, I smoke it every morning.
This tobacco is great morning, noon or night.The taste is great and I will be ordering more soon.
EMP is a great light English to smoke at any time of the day really. This isn't to say that it is light in flavor but rather that it isn't a lat bomb. You certainly get a good taste of the lat but the orientals shine through for a really fine mixture from Dunhill.
Not a fan. It is way too smoky and spicy for me. I will stick with my Lane BCA, I love Cavendish.
This is a mild, smoky-sweet smoke. It smells great out of the tin and is great with a cup of coffee in the morning. I ordered more after my sample.
This is my blend. Smooth, cool, smokey. Like a good scotch. I have been trying many brands and blends - sweet, fruity and non. Still trying to find about 3-5 blends to rely on. This is one of those go to must have tobaccos.
This blend has great range. Pack it loose or tight its a nice mild smoke with English characteristics that fade in and out.Lovely stuff for anytime. There is an almost buttery finish about it for me at times..could just be me.
When you find a good thing, you can't help but share. I stumbled upon EMP early my exploring of pipe blends, and it has settled into the #1 spot and is my "Go To" blend. I've had a tin somewhere for several years now. This blend is perfect for every use, but there is something magical about it when smoked in the cool of the morning hours outdoors. It's worth twice it's price or better in my book. Buy it!
Brilliant tobacco, nice and light but still has just enough Latakia to give it a sturdy english feel. I'd highly recommend it!
I like this stuff, I haven't had the infamous Nightcap before, but this is what I settled for. I think it's good, it's not as light and mild as it may sound like it is, but it's not quite as strong and dark as some other latakia-based English blends as. It has sort of a dark and mysterious flavor to me, smoky and charcoal-like, not in a bad way though, it's not bitter or ashy or anything. I would say it could still make an all-day smoke, though. It's good.
Great blend. Smoky, mild spice and slightly creamy. Good anytime of the day. Has the spice and pipey flavors others tobaccos lack. I find myself using this to cut plum pudding and Mississippi River. It adds the burn and flavors those 2 Baccys lack. All around its a great blend, a must have.
I was surprised that I actually kind of like this blend since I'm not too crazy about non-aromatics or English blends. It smoked nice and had a nice aroma.
One of my fellow pipe smoking friends from pipe magazine .com gave me several baccies to sample. One was this product. I would say this is my go to smoke. I find it smokes cool and mild. My wife likes the earthly aroma it has. A great smoke anytime of the day, but especially "early morning."
