A robust and sweet base of Virginia, Burley and Perique is mixed with Deer Tongue. The herbal and rich taste of this blend is almost unique amongst modern tobacco blends. However, it should be noted that this blend recalls many classic mixtures long gone. With a wonderful room note, a bowl of Gentleman Caller will take you back in time.

To me, this was pretty bland although it lit and burned well with few re-lights. Overall though it didn't do much for me and I won't buy again.
This is my first time having it blend with deer tongue in it and it really takes me back to summers in Perry Sound. The deer tongue is very reminiscent of the mysterious native herb sweet grass. In the summer Perry Sound would smell of this elusive herb when it would get mowed in the hot summer sun! A heavenly aroma and a great addition to a pipe blend! It might be -6 and snowing here today but I am immediately taken back to the dog days of summer and better times! 10 stars if I could give them!!
Mild grassy and sweet, almost vanilla. A little perique which shows itself more near the end of the bowl. Reminds me of the warm summer days with a light breeze. I love this stuff.
This is an interesting smoke. The addition of the deer tongue really colors the flavor of this blend. For me, this is not an everyday smoke, but it is one I will keep on hand for when the mood strikes.
I would also advise dedicating a pipe to this blend (I set aside a cob) as it ghosts something fierce.
This is a good after dinner tobacco
