Have not smoked my pipe in 20 years, the sweet memories make me start up again. I find Acadian Perique somewhat strong for start-up. Taste is great but the stringy cut burns a bit fast for me. Make sure you pack the tobacco down well and draw slowly.
This is not your typical vaper, it certainly has the Virginia and the perique however much more is added. Reminds me of Irish Oak by Peterson more than any other vaper I can think of. Its a kitchen sink but thank god no latakia in it. Taste is of Virginia oriental not much of else but the contributions in the final picture. Have an ashy aftertaste. Room note is obviously not pleasant but not horrible.
I was hesitant to order this blend. But now that I have had several bowls. I am very glad I did. Really smooth and full of delicious perique flavors but not overpowering as I had thought it would be. Get some if you enjoy perique flavor for sure. I will be ordering more.
This is one that i tuely expected to enjoy more but found to be a bit of a disappointment even though i would say is "good". Vapers are some of my favorites and i partcularly like the McLelland's Royal Cajun Black and Special which i think i was expecting the HH Acadian to be like. The first thing that struckme as strange about this blend was the oily/peppery taste it left in the month, very similar to the taste of the olive oil with pepper that you deep your bread in at some Italian restaurants, then there was the cavendish (not a fan of cavendish). When smoking it requires multiple passes of the pipe cleaner and the cleaner comes out very dark. I have never been prone to nic hit illness but this blend pushed me to the limit with either nicotine or some type if additive that did not sit well with me. The way i describing it you might think it was not at all agreeable but overall i would say that it a fairly decent smoke (better than an aromatic any day) and that it is worth a try, many have found it to be a great smoke and rate it 5 stars easily.
