Medium Mild Full Pleasant

I've reviewed other Peretti burleys in here, and have noted their skill in blending them and the quality of the base tobaccos. The same comments apply here. The first taste you get with BPC is a burley nuttiness, with a subtle sweetness soon working it's way in. As you smoke your way down the bowl, the same taste is consistently there.

Packing is done by putting the pipe in the pouch and scooping the tobacco in with the index finger. A medium tamp finishes it off. It required an average amount of relights and didn't need a lot of tamping. There is very little dottle left in the pipe.

I've read that BPC is very similar to Peretti's #333 burley. They are pretty similar, although I seem to get a little less bitterness from the BPC. You really owe it to yourself to try the Peretti burley blends if you are a burley smoker.

Scores for BPC: taste-17 of 20; lighting and burn- 9 of 10; value- 8 of 10. That adds up to 34 and ** score for BPC.

This is as good as you're going to get when it comes to cube cut burley. This has much less of that Peretti's soapy/floral casing than 333. It's barely there, but it still is. Cuban Mixture is my favorite, but I do crave a bowl of this now and then.

Nice, hefty sample from a friend - probably 2+ oz. It went fast!

This is different than a lot of lesser-known tobacco house burleys I've smoked recently, such as those from Uhle's and Pipeworks & Wilke. This is a lot more natural, and similar to C&D's "Burley Straight" - a straightforward, unadorned burley. I detected no additional flavorings of note, just a nice smooth nutty burley. The cube cut made for easy packing - a simple "scoop" load - and the burn was easy and even. Reasonable nicotine punch but nothing to drop you onto the floor.

This appears to be of high quality and would make a great all-day smoke for the burley enthusiast. Also a great potential blender for those blends that need some even burning or a little extra body. I intend to keep some of this around but will probably rarely smoke it straight. But for someone looking for a natural burley tobacco without all the trappings and casings of some of those other "natural" burleys, this is one to reach for. Hardly complex and extremely resistant to DGT, this is still tasty enough to recommend as a straight smoke.

I am so glad for this website, because it introduced me to the shop of L.J. Peretti, and the delightful Burley blends that are made there.

This is a very old all American mixture. Plug cut Burley, sweetened with molasses, and maybe a hint of licorice, both intended to smooth out the smoke. It is also spiced with ginger.

This is relatively sweeter than some Burley blends I've tried, but certainly not cloying. It burns very cool and dry, requiring the gentlest tamp from time to time.

It is a no nonsense, straightforward smoke, with a delightful old fashioned aroma, and a pleasant nicotine kick. The quality is excellent.

One of the gentlemen at Peretti's told me that BCP is so close to their Blend 333 that the ONLY reason they carry both is that they sell so much of both. I can see this...to a point. That distinctive, though elusive, Peretti aromatic is readily-discerned in BCP, though barely detectable in 333. As Fitzgerald said of the very rich: "They are different."

BCP is a sweet Burley Cube. Period. Anyone looking for an epiphany here will likely be disappointed. Any Burley smoker looking for a fine specemin of the weed will be gratified.

BCP is perfectly fine when smoked straight, but when mixed--in varying amounts--with Peretti's D-7485 and Blend 33...it provides a true adventure for anyone.

For a different, nuttier, earthier take on Cube Burley, I would recommend House of Windsor's 2005 Burley Cube.

Not bad, but for my taste buds a little too sicky sweet. The side-smoke smell of the first bowl reminded me a lot of chinese food heavy with MSG. Maybe it's the base for their other burlys, but straight... eh. It's not bad, by far, but I think that they have a lot better.

My reccomendation in regards to a Peretti burly would heartily be Somerset Slice. It's a little more expensive but it is one of the finest tobaccos I've smoked out of my pipe.

Another great straight Burley by Peretti. The cube cut makes it easy to pack and light, and it burns cool and dry to the end of the bowl. It isn't very different from Peretti's 333, just a little sweeter and with a more evident nutty flavour.

The folks at Peretti?s advised me that BPC is the base burley from which all of their other burley blends are formulated. As advertised, it does burn sweet and cool and is pretty much a straight, ?non-thinking? smoke from start to finish. This is a first class nutty burley that makes for a good, all-day smoke. To my taste buds BPC tasted and reminded me of C&D Crooner, a blend that contains visible deer tongue. While I did not discern any deer tongue in the pouch, BPC may be cased with a modicum of deer tongue.

A cigarette is to be smoked. A cigar is to be enjoyed. A pipe is to be savored.

I rate this tobacco 8.0 out of 10.

I picked up a couple of ounces this morning just to provide a break from my usual blends. This is just a good, honest, nutty/sweet burley plug. This is reminicent of years ago when I use to smoke Heine's Blend.

I did find that it needed several re-lights throughout the run of the bowl. However, this will probably change once I air it out awhile, (it was quite moist upon opening).

The flavor was consistent to the bottom of the bowl with no surprises. Burns to a nice grey/white ash. A nice change of pace for this usual American/English-English blend smoker.
