A perfect blend! This is by far my favorite.
To be honest with you, when I first lit this blend, it was kind of turned off by the strong cigar like flavor. Took about 15 mins for the flavor to take shape. Not terribly sweet, but you can taste Virginia. The Perique is definitely there pinching, especially with the retro inhale. Thought it was going to burn fast cause of the dryness. I’ve been sipping on it now for over an hour, and still have almost a half bowl left, in what I would call a medium size chamber. In review, it gets very enjoyable, but you’ve got to be patient. If you're a vapor fan you’ll like it.
This was one of the very first Vir/Per blends I ever smoked when switching over from aromatics. It is also the blend that started my love for Perique. Upon opening the tin I was greeted with the smell of sweet, earthy, spicy deliciousness. The scent is what I imagined sitting at a camp fire by the bayou deep in the back woods of Louisiana cooking a rustic pot of spicy gumbo over the fire. Upon setting a flame to this blend and slowly pulling the flame down to dance on the tobacco, I was greeted with , spicy, sweet murky earth. That all blended together in a way that is just amazing. Smoked nice and slow while enjoying a quiet evening you get a very relaxing flavorful smoke, but beware, should you smoke to fast and not pay attention, Lady N will cast her voodoo curse on you.
