A slightly coarse flake and faint aroma of peach greet you on opening. Quite moist, so best rubbed out and given just a bit of airing time.

The first impressions are of the underlying Virginia and for the first few puffs I found myself questioning whether there was any Perique in there at all. But after a minute or two, ah, here it comes, that dash of seasoning revealing itself with just a touch of spice. And then almost a hint of soft berries, intriguing and quite complex.

A gentle cadence is rewarded with a soft mouth feel and an unfolding of yet more flavour. Take this one nice and slow and it seems to keep giving a bit more as you work your way down the bowl, oh, there's a hint of apple now.

A very immersive experience this one, I found it a particularly calming and relaxing smoke. I think we have a winner on our hands.

Highly recommended.

The final "four seasons" for me to try ! As I found with the other ones the actual flake is of a very nice build ! I find it could use a small amount of extra drying time to help the rubbing but with only little perseverance it "rubs" to a good consistency . The aroma pre-light is of mainly Virginia . Despite the moistness I find that it stays lit well , not requiring many re-lights . The smoke has an almost raisin/fruity quality to it that must in some way come from the sherry barrels used to mature it in .If drawn with to much force it will give a little bite but if smoked with ease it is an enjoyable smoke .
