At this sitting I am tasting a Virginia/Perique offering from Mac Baren, Acadian Perique.
The tin smell is sweet, delicious. Loaded in a trusty Stanwell #240 Featherweight the pre-light draw is deep and sweet. At first light the sweetness and depth is there with an additional citrus note, which I suspect is the Oriental leaf coming into play. I settle into the smoke and there’s quite a bit of body to this blend and it commands some respect in cadence. Balance interplay between all the components is nice though not sure about the citrus presence . All in all I found it a very satisfying smoke, one best reserved for a full stomach. Burned clean, and consistently dry. A different and interesting offering in this genre of tobacco blends – try some.
