Description Ref # 3148

The Nurnberg brothers Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, whose elegant Dublin tobacconist first opened for business in 1865 on Grafton Street, Dublin could scarcely have dreamt that they would participate in the birth of a legend.

Friedrich & Heinrich, who christened their shop simply 'Kapp Brothers', soon made a name for themselves making and selling quality Meerschaum and Briar Root pipes. It was not long before Charles Peterson, walked into Kapp Brothers Grafton Street premises armed with a revolutionary pipe and ambitious plans for the future.

There and then, Peterson suggested that the brothers go into partnership with him to turn his pipe dream into the world's dream pipe. They agreed and the company was renamed Kapp & Peterson. Kapp and Peterson went on to become Dublin's most fashionable and respected manufacturer and purveyor of fine smoking products. Pipe and cigar smokers would stroll down to the elegant premises for professional advice on the subtle nuances that determine a good handmade cigar or pipe. The Peterson brand was embraced by politicians, business leaders, sportsmen, artists and writers.

The skills and craft which Charles Peterson applied to his original invention are continued by the dedicated team of craftsmen at Peterson today. Whether as a gift for a friend or for your own personal use, you will appreciate the excellence of the Peterson range of cigars, tobaccos, pipes and smoking accessories.

Peterson Balkan Mixture

Peterson's Balkan Mixture is a smooth and gentle Latakia blend. Although it's called Balkan Mixture, there are no Oriental tobaccos present, at least they are not mentioned.

This does not mean there's no spice to this blend as the Perique gives a mild peppery quality to the flavour.

The ribbon cut is almost effortless to pack into the bowl. It is shaded gold brown to chestnut with dark tobacco ribbons interspersed. Lighting is easy and keeping the tobacco alight is no problem.

The aroma from the tin is of smoky pine and oak with sweetness and a mild pepper-acetic zest.

Please note: Pipe used is for illustration purposes only.

Your order will not be dispatched until this proof has been provided. Thanks you for your understanding.

Tasting Notes

The Latakia's smoky woody taste is immediately present but is not overpowering and allows the sweetness of the Virginia through.

The Perique takes the stage with the Latakia and combine to give a tranquil peppery bitterness and smoky flair that is wonderful to the palate.

Strength: 3/5
Aromatic Taste: 2/5
Room Note: 2/5

This is a delicious blend with no component overpowering the rest. If you like Latakia (and I do) there's enough here to keep you interested, but not so much that it should put off those who dislike excessive Latakia. The perique is balanced beautifully as a condiment and links the Latakia and Virginias smoothly. It's not really a Balakan blend, but it is very good.

this was not " my cup of tea" very strong taste. I think this is a marmite tobacco. I found I had more tongue bite than enjoyment. if you like your pipe bowl full of tar ( like my brother in law)you may " get " the point of this one.
