Peretti's only pure Virginia mixture. RCTR shows a subtle sweetness and nuance without cloying. A refined mixture for the Virginia lover.

Notes: We've got many blends. But we lack one distinct and classic style of mixture. An all Virginia blend. RCTR covers that base gracefully. Initially blended as a limited item for the Chicago show some years ago, we've brought it back in a semi-limited capacity for our ever growing list of dedicated pipers to (hopefully) enchant.

Not long ago, we received a call from a curious customer who had dug up a tin of RCTR he hadn't touched until a few days ago. He called because our collective handwriting is abysmal and he couldn't make out the glyphs marked on his can. Fair.

"R.... C I B?", he asked.

After a few moments of thought and a few odd looks between the staff at Peretti's, we decided it could only have been RCTR. The man who called was simply delighted at how wonderfully the tobacco had aged. After that conversation, we decided to blend up a batch and make it available online. Try it for yourself and learn what bad penmanship is like.

Mild to Medium None Detected Mild to Medium Pleasant

The various Virginias offer a bit of citrus and earth, a mild stewed, sugary dark fruitiness and some grass, a few bread and wood notes, along with a touch of spice and floralness. Also sports a very mild tanginess. The strength is a step past the mild level, while the taste is a step past that. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite, but may burn a tad warm if puffed fast. Burns fairly cool, very clean, and a little quickly with a very smooth, very consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires few relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. It does lack a little depth, but it’s an all day smoke that could make a good mixer, too. Three and a half stars out of four.

A really pleasant medium bodied medium strength VA blend with lots of aging potential. A really enjoyable, smooth and cool smoking and bite free. I have cellared away pounds of it. It is very nice.
