Peterson Sherlock Holmes

What you'll find in Sherlock Holmes pipe tobacco is a straightforward blend of select flue-cured Virginias from around the world along with some rich Burley from Brazil. The Peterson blend is finished with a subtle citrus note that is only faintly noticeable in the flavor. A higher end Virginia blend that's not too overpowering, Sherlock Holmes is a perfect everyday tobacco to keep in your rotation.

Pleasantly calming & suitable
Haven’t enjoyed a good pipe in a few years and eager to return properly I Grabbed a sampler as well as naturally gravitated towards this as a lifelong Sherlock Holmes fan. It’s super flavorful yet mellow and nuanced. Very pleasant without becoming boring or overwhelming and best of all its not some cheesy marketing gimmick. I love this blend & will certainly be keeping it in stock.

Holmes Comes Alive!
To be honest - I'm a Sherlock Holmes fan and was looking to try something different - so I actually purchased this because of the name. I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it was. I only wish it came in tub size. 5 STARS for me.

Nice smoke to relax with. There is a plum-like taste, a little citrus with a hint of woodiness. Smoke this blend slow, sip it and sit back and enjoy

My boyfriend's Views on Peterson Sherlock Holmes
I DON'T smoke, so this review is all my boyfriend thoughts on Peterson Sherlock Holmes. He is the pipe smoker. He said it is consistent in flavor. He like Sherlock Holmes. He said the flavor is very similar to the Haunted Bookshop. But one is just a bit stronger than the other. He gave it a 3 stars, because the tobacco needs to be dry out for a period of time before smoking it, otherwise you get tongue bite and is hard to keep lite because the tobacco in tin is wet when you first open it. Otherwise, it a tobacco that you can smoke all day. Very enjoyable.

I really liked this one, the aroma was outstanding and couldn't be happier puff after puff especially when I smoke it in my pipe called the Sherlock.

Pretty good
Bland flavor, but was pretty damp when I opened the tin. I decided to cellar this one for a few years to see how if it deepens in flavor. It’s okay if you’re looking for a daily smoke that doesn’t take too much concentration discerning flavors.

Sherlock Holmes: Elizabeth's country cousin?
I really like the Virginias in this mixture, and evidently the burleys give it an added dimension of character. Equally important, I think the citrus note goes a long way to give this mixture a great tin aroma; very enticing. It stays lit very well and seems to have just the right amount of moisture - just a little, just enough. In some ways, it seems akin (to me) to Dunhill's soon-to-be-gone (sigh...) Elizabethan Mixture; perhaps its country cousin. Not sure where Peterson's made the association between this blend and The Great Detective, but I'd say it's pretty well deserving of the honor nonetheless. The one factor that keeps my rating of it so far at 4 stars instead of 5 is that my tongue keeps searching for and anticipating the Perique that isn't there. I think that would be the crowning touch for this mixture; it would complete it. One other puzzling factor is that I haven't so far been able to detect any discernible room note left by it at all. Even my wife couldn't smell any room note from it. That's kinda odd to itself, but maybe a plus for smokers who have other household members who don't have an appreciation for pipe aroma that doesn't smell like baking cookies. Just sayin'... Overall, I find it to be a pleasant tobacco and will likely order more someday after my last tin of Dunhill E.M. is gone.

To me, this is a higher end Virginia blend. Easy to pack and light. I suggest keeping a cool smoke on this one or you may experience a little bite. Would recommend to any fan of Virginia tobacco or to keep in your rotation.

Loved the fruity tin note. The ribbon cut packs well and burns down to the bottom of the bowl. Slightly sweet taste, not overpowering. To me, a good morning smoke. I liked it.

Easy to light stays lit through out the bowl. Room note "smells like tobacco" nothing sweet, nothing to write home about. Its mild no bite. Flavor " tastes like tobacco", not sweet, not bitter, nothing to write home about. Likes: if you like puffing your pipe and just sitting around doing nothing its a great buy. If your looking to please others with it's room note or hoping for something tasty there are other choices.

Customer Testimonials
Right from opening this tin I had a feeling it would be a tobacco to get used to before it's enjoyed. I thought the smell of it was close to hops, so after I acquired a taste for the Sherlock blend (which I would put it up there as one of my top daily smokes) I thought about seeing how it would fair alongside an IPA. Honestly this tobacco and an IPA go so good together that it has become my after dinner smoke and drink ritual.

This is my go to tobacco... I first sampled it in London, my staple over there had been St. Bruno ready rubbed, but moving to the states had me change brands. Great smoke first thing in the morning, the citrus notes are quite delectable.

The tin note is very sweet with hints of citrus. It was pretty moist so I let it dry for a little before packing. It packs pretty easy and lights up. It is a pretty mild smoke but does have some bite to it if you don't smoke it slow. Thats hard though because it does burn a bit fast. The flavor is an earthy kind with light smoke. Not a bad smoke, but definitely not worthy to be in my rotation. Maybe it can be of better use as a filler to slow burners.
The tin note on this tobacco is a really nice, easy smell that is not overpowering. I thought the tin note had a sweetness to it. The appearance of the tobacco is nice as well. It does have some tongue bite to it. The flavor is straight Va. Smooth and even burning, kind of fast. Overall good tobacco to try, but I'm not sure if it will make a regular rotation.
Nice aroma in the tin. Not bad on the taste buds. A little tongue bite. I've noticed that I have gotten some tongue bite with all the Peterson blends I've tried and that's too bad. I think they are better at making pipes than tobacco.

I use this as a filler to ones that burn to slow.
