I broke open my jar of D-9507 that I got in a big order from Peretti. I was picking up their 150th, Thanksgiving blend, and No. 8 slices in bulk and figured I would grab a few other samples to try. D-9507 is the first I tried in this list. As a relatively new pipe smoker (15 bowls), I am still learning how to describe the flavors and what it is like so bear with me.

Tin Note: After opening this and letting it sit out for a bit, I noticed your typical English scent with a bit of sweetness. But, there was a sickly sweetness or pungency to it that almost made me not smoke it. Glad I didn't listen to those initial thoughts.

First Smoke: Let it sit for an hour. Used my bones bulldog for this one. German packing method. Stayed pretty well lit until the end. Figured I probably need more drying time.

Taste: This is supposed to have a bit of a spice to it having some perique. With my experience with EMP orientals I expected a back of the throat spice as well. But I was met by a sweetness that came through. Not overly so, but a pleasant light sweetness. It's what I expected from 1-Q but didn't get. I am excited to try more bowls to see if I just grabbed too much of the Cav in the jar. Or maybe a bit more drying time will bring out the other flavors.

What are your thoughts on this blend?

Crown is a very nice English aromatic. It has a little bit of soapy quality which makes it different than their other English blends.
