I was surprised when I discovered that I had not reviewed this blend from Jack's. I have enjoyed it on may occasions.

I like two things about the description of this blend: It's short-n-sweet, and it's right on the mark.

If you are new to Perique, it might be a bit much for you, for "stout" it is. The Va has a pleasant flavor to it. The Perique starts out boldly and never really fades. By the end of the bowl you will never ask the question "what does Perique taste like?".

Don't even think of puffing hard & fast - Perique doesn't like that. ;-)

Acadian Coast is a winner.

December 2005. Acadian Coast,a very nice tobacco blend when purchased,but excellent after ageing for at least 3 to 6 months. After ageing,very easy to light and thoroughly delightful right down to the bottom of the bowl,leaving a nice greyish ash. The virginia and burley could be tasted first of all,then followed the perique closely behind. This is a very easy going and relaxing smoke,not complicated in amyway. Offers a very nice flavour of all 3 tobaccos. Highly recommended.

Acadian Coast came to me via a tobacco box pass.

This is unique among the VA/P mixtures I've tasted. It has some of the stoved taste of Blackwood Flakes, yet carries the tangy zip of the more "American" blends of VA/P. The combo in this blend provides a prevalent fruity sourness. It is not unpleasant - similar to unsweetened fruit preserve.

Fairly even in taste all the way down the bowl, there was a definite tension between the dark sweetness of the VA and the perique's sharpness. The stoving lends a great support of smoothness. It is not as dark as McClelland's VA leaves, neither is it as fruity as Esoterica's VA/P blends. Not quite as "direct" as C+D's fantastic Bayou Morning. But somehow seems to fall in the middle of all these with unique taste. I at points think I detect a slight flavoring, but can not be sure. If present, it does not inhibit the tobacco taste at all.

The flavor is full and rich. A bit heavy handed in the use of Perique - especially as it kicks up towards the end of the bowl. This suits me fine, but if you don't like this style of tobacco, it may not appeal to you.

I will definitely sample more, and perhaps order a batch in the near future. Even if I do not choose to reorder, I feel this tobacco gets 3 stars for another unique take on the VA/P combo.
