Joie de vivre, that magnificent ability to see the joy in everything, and the very embodiment of the festive spirit of New Orleans, is the inspiration for this singular, eminently cellar worthy blend. A foundation of fragrant Latakia and sweet red Virginia is joined by equal amounts of Perique and Katirini Turkish to enhance complexity, and then finished by a dash of unsweetened Black Cavendish for extra smoothness. Estimated peak: 8-12 years from tin date. But it's delicious right now!

A very nice tasting English. The components are melded together giving, at first, a "traditional" English flavor profile. Perhaps a little sweeter than "traditional" due to the addition of the Black Cav. Not a great deal sweeter, but mildly sweeter. That's probably good for the aging process. There is a fair amount of Perique which becomes more evident the deeper into the bowl you get. It's nice and spicey by the time you get toward the end. Medium in body and taste. Perfect moisture right out of the tin. Crumbles easily and burns perfectly. Seems like a blend that will age nicely. I'm adding it to my stash. Once again, I'm reserving a star until I've tasted the aged product. 3 stars for now.
