Cornell and Diehl's Bayou Morning Flake is a strong Virginia and Perique blend. While most Virginia and Perique blends are sweet, tangy, and light this blend is a dark and rich departure from the type. The dark chunks are made of twenty five percent Perique and a mixture of Virginias. The blend is strong and full flavored, yet displays a surprising delicacy. Far more than an entry level Va/Per, this blend is an experienced piper's blend.

Absolutely love BMF from C and D. Seems a bit stronger than the ribbon cut. If you are a perique fan you’ve got to try this!
Great Va/Per. Darker, richer, fuller than the ribbon cut, flakes break up effortlessly - facilitating a faster dry time and smoking experience. For the price point and availability this is a great Virginia/Perique blend that needs to be tried at least once.
One of the highest peaks for Virginia/Perique lovers!
The flake is very nice, good right from the tin. I do let it sit a while in a bowl to get the most from the flavor. Burns well, once fully lit. Great flavor! For the advanced Enthusiast and the Adventurous Rookie. power level medium/high but the flavor is worth it!
A slow, cool, delicious, down to ashes tobacco. I really enjoy it with a cup of coffee. Very forgiving and does not require many relights, smokes well in any pipe you use. Since I first bought it has been a regular and I always have an extra tin to avoid running out.
This one leaped to the top of my VaPer list, which is small. I tend to like English type blends mostly, but in the mornings I enjoy a Virginia type in a corn cob. This is a superb smoke. It smells heavenly and smokes cool and smooth. It's a bit damp, so you can air it out for a few if you wish.
Well, this was my first Parique Virginia blend and I think it was a really good one to start with! The tin note is unbelievable! It smelled of figs, earth and perhaps a little bit of morning dew. The flake is broken up and I did not rub it out, just packed my pipe and began to puff away. It smoked cool and has an aroma that reminds me of a cool morning in the deer woods. A dozen or so bowls later and it continues to only get better! The moisture was absolutely perfect right out of the tin! This will definitely be one I always keep on hand! I’m looking forward to cellaring a few tins, I can only imagine how good they’ll be!
Not going to write a long review but will just say the tin note is amazing and this stuff is a great smoke. I am planning to cellar a lot deeper than I have already. Grab a few times and wait a couple of years, the moisture content is great and flakes are perfect for a fold & stuff. Cellar deep and enjoy mates!
This is a broken flake with the texture of bread. Not what one would call a beautiful flake from an aesthetic standpoint. Needs to be consumed in a pipe dedicated to naturals. If you like Navy Flake or if you like Virginia Flakes, this needs to have some place in your home. The Perique Is big from a percentage standpoint but smooth. This is the last smoke of the day for you as it overwhelms your pallet with fermented tobacco which is fantastic and cool burning. The next day your favorite Virginia is perceivably much sweeter as compared to this complex tobacco. The nic hit is balanced back from the high sugar content of the Virginias. Powerhouse of flavor - sometimes it's just what is needed.
