A Unique Surprise
Peterson's Hyde Park is a surprise because the company's short description on the tin describes it as a "traditional English blend." While this is technically true, the English "Lakeland style," with its absence of latakia, is not what I expected. Nevertheless, this is a fine tobacco. I just smoke it in a different pipe from the one I had originally planned for it. Hyde Park is right down its street as a classic English Lakeland tobacco. But I suspect it suffers from the slight mischaracterization it receives from Peterson. I first heard of it by a friend that told me to stay away from the stuff. His reaction was so negative, I wondered if something else was going on since I knew he favoured aromatic blends and didn't care much for English ones. This may be Dunhill's doing, but "traditional English" has come to mean "latakia." Smokers looking to replace their "Nightcap" with Hyde Park will be disappointed. This is in an entirely different vein. It's more like a Samuel Gawith blend.

Not my cup of tea
Far too bland for me.

Wonderful, Distinctive English Blend
This is a wonderful blend with a very distinctive, original taste. The Virginias and burley marry well and, as others have said, there is an undeniable Lakeland undertone that moves from forefront to the bacfk of the palate throughout the smoke. This is my favorite morning smoke, as the rich burley flavors and the maple topnote are dynamite with a cup of coffee. I think that P&C misses the mark with the "Mellow" designation. All other vendors label it a solid medium in intensity, and I'd say that's correct. It's a quality tobacco that burns clean and requires only minimal relights (once dried; I typically give each bowl's worth an hour out of the tin before stuffing and sparking). This is precisely the pedigree one expects from Peterson, and you won't find this flavor via any other blend. Give it a go and have your socks knocked off!

Love this quirky tobacco!
Hyde Park may not be my favorite tobacco, but it's DAMN close! [4-1/2 Stars] Upon opening the tin, you immediately get a sense that something special awaits. (Yes, I realize that the plastic bag thingy is a bit unconventional.) Anyhow, the cut is a broken flake, along with odd-shaped bits and pieces. Both the tin smell and texture of the tobacco suggest a very refined quality. Lighting up, you taste some seriously good VA and burley, along with a light touch of Lakeland scent. The flavoring is more or less noticeable throughout the bowl, but it unexpectedly wafts in and out. Very satisfying smoke, leaves behind a clean bowl with no stickiness. So there you have it... an awesome "English-style tobacco" without Latakia!

Don't know if it is suppose to be this way?
I don't know how to describe this kind of smoke since it has a certain type of tobacco I usually don't buy. But to give you a layman's description it had a perfume licorice aroma and taste. Or something like underarm smell masked heavily with deodorant perfume. Am I making fun? No, but it is the only way I can describe it. What I did like about it was the makeup of the tobacco itself. Thick, yet stringy and moist. I almost wanted to chew on it. Would I buy it again? Sure, if it is supposed to be this way.

Unusual, but still good
I am undecided on this, I don't detect the notes out of the tin and it smokes very well, but I can't put my finger on the taste. It's a good smoke and burns well though.
