High Grade Virginias with Louisiana Perique. The sweetness of this
bright-golden slices give a tastefully and mild smoke: the good
choice for the VA-Perique Flake lovers.

Pouchnote: At first a bit sweet for me, but after one month quite nice and natural.
Presentation: Flake slices, broken up a bit due to packing in the pouch I think.
Easy to load by folding and stuffing, with some crumps on top to facilitate lighting up. A few matches and light tamping and of we go...
On first light taste is a bit sharp and pleasantly sour and very slightly peppery, later on it becomes nicely -natural- sweet. I t reminds me of Old Gowrie but a bit more mellow. Very pleasant to blow the smoke out through the nose. No tongue bite experienced.
I'm not very good at unraveling all the taste components as I see them in other reviews, but for me this is a very satisfying, naturally sweet blend, to which I turn to surprisingly often during a smoking week.
Highly recommended to all VaPer lovers
Smoked in a lot of different pipes, for this test in a sandblasted Astleys churchwarden.
