D & R Tobacco - TAPS VIP
Triangle Area Pipe Smokers is located in the historical heart of tobacco country. The remnants of tobaccos glory days can be seen in the Victorian homes lining somnolent streets of isolated small towns, and in the tobacco barns that dot the rural landscape. Fortunate to have within its membership a master blender, VIP combines two great classics of southern tobacco. From the tobacco heartland comes bright Virginias. From the bayous of Louisiana, spicy Perique. With a classic aroma and flavor, the result is s local expression of a fine Virginia Perique.

This is a limited production blend, and I was lucky to get two tins at the 2011 Chicago Pipe Show. I wish I had bought more. If I can find it, I will.
This is a classic VaPer. I rank this at or above Haddo's Delight. Yes, it's that good.
The tobacco is the highest quality. The cut borders on shag and it burns perfectly, leaving no dottle at all. The flavor is exceedingly sweet with a strong, classic, figgy Perique aroma. Obviously D&R took care to find the highest quality ingredients
As with all Virginia based tobaccos, this can burn hot, so watch out. But if you can find it, buy it.
