Delta Days is a first for H&H - a Virginia/Perique/Burley blend. We've combined matured red Virginia with a toasty sweetness with wonderful, rich mahogany Burley and a hearty amount of Perique. The Burley gives it more body and richness than typical Virginia/Perique blend, but it's smooth enough to be an all-day tobacco for those who enjoy something a bit bolder.

Notes: Introduced in 2015.

The mahogany Burley dominates this blend and imparts a woody taste, with rough edges that are smoothed a little by the sweet Virginia. The Perique brings both dark fruit and peppery sensations to the mix. I find a tinge of "Burley bitters" -- but that's not altogether bad here. Overall there is a lack of balance, but it is nonetheless interesting. Smoke volume and body are excellent. I can't work up 3-star enthusiasm for this blend, but VaPer lovers who occasionally crave a Burley-forward smoke should try it.

BTW, the "Blend Type" should be classified as "American", not VaPer.

Similar Blends: This is better than GLP/Cumberland. If you want to avoid the woody taste, go for RO/Fire Storm. I could even see C&D/Haunted Bookshop on the same shelf -- despite its musty overtones.

Bold is the key word here. Bold but not overpowering. The red Virginia is a little spicy sweet, the burley adds a lot of body and the perique is plummy pepper in flavor. All blended together very harmoniously. Definitely a great after dinner smoke. This blend has won a place in my tobacco rotation. Highly recommended.

Initially I found the blend sort of boring, but after a few days it started to grow on me. It is a rich tobacco taste, occasionally the burley comes through strong, other puffs have that spicy perique flavor. This is the tobacco I reach for when I don't want sweet and I don't want Latakia. It sits next to my tub of Prince Albert and jar of c&d bayou night for my "straight tobacco" moods. not a daily smoke but it ends up in my pipe a few times a week
