The Perique for the RO Series Perique Blend B-41 comes from the Belmont region of the Golden Triangle of St. James Parish. It has a buttery character that's reminiscent of brined olives. There is also a red pepper kick to it. To take advantage of this singular perique, Russ combined it with shag-cut golden Virginia and dark-fired Kentucky for a uniquely bold experience.

Tin Label: Perique Blend B-41 uses Perique from the Belmont region. Combined with shag-cut dark-fired Kentucky and golden Virginia, this is intensely flavorful with a briny, butter character with strong notes of red pepper -- best in a small bowl.

The golden Virginia provides some tangy citrus, grass and hay, with a light toastiness, and forms the base of the blend. The Belmont perique is spicy, buttery, and earthy with a slight stewed, fermented fruit note as a supporting player. The woody, dry, spicy, smoky, savory dark fired Kentucky rises just above being a condiment, and is evident in every puff. The strength and taste levels start out as medium and gets to the the center of medium to strong by the half way point. The nic-hit is closer to medium than it is to mild. Won’t bite or get harsh, but the Kentucky does have a hint of a rough edge. Burns cool, clean and being a shag cut, a little fast. The mildly sweet and more woody, smoky, spicy savory, complex, well balanced flavors are consistent from start to finish, easily burning to ash with few relights. Has a lingering after taste that’s a bit filling. Not an all day smoke, and I recommend a small bowl for this one.
