Davidoff Scottish mixture in a Peterson lovat. Great pipe, interesting blend. First bowl, too soon to form any sort of opinion, but it's not bad at all.

Lovely looking briar there PD. Very distinguished. I know the brand but not at all familiar with Davidoff as a producer of baccy.

Agreed. And just what is that pipe? The blast or whatever it is looks too good for a Pete.

I thought so too, but that is definitely the Peterson "P" on the stem.

The pipe is stamped "Fisherman" on the silver collar, has an acrylic stem and is maybe 5" long.  I've seen a few on european pipe sites but not in the states. The Peterson Fisherman series here is a different pipe.

Link to an example:

The Davidoff tobacco was just sort of "Meh.... Neutral " Never really shined but wasn't bad either. Flavors were a little thin.

Really nice Pete and very common in Europe.  A few years ago I tried a couple of bowls of this blend and to me it was just " blah ". Never hit that high note for me!
But that Pete is sure a beauty, but than again I'm a fan of all Lovat style pipes. 



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

That's a great looking Peterson. Hopefully one day, one will wander across the pond and end up in my neck of the woods. That would be a hard one to resist!

I've tried their flake medallions. Also kind of "meh". I think they also produce unremarkable cigars of a light to medium nature.

Fantastic Pete by the way. Got all tingly looking at it. I've seen the fisherman series on the net, but never a real pic

Keep your eyes open on eBay. I've spotted two of the stunning Pete Lovat pipes up for bid. Definitely my favorite out of all the Pete styles.

For many years I was hooked on their University Flake back in the 80's to the mid 90's. Now it's one of those blah blends. Still have a few old tins, need to pop one open one day soon.
