|It's holy smoke!
By golly, this is one of the nicest cubed cut burley based blends I have ever smoked. Cool, dry, tasty, plus of substance! No flavors added, just tobacco and some meat.
It has some complexity due to the other ingredients, but the perique stands out on this mild base. Not as much perique as say Kajun Kake, but enough to give you lively flavor throughout (if you like burley and care for some perique). C&D's cubed burley is the best.
The perique with virginia pushes it just north of medium IMO.
I like it. Met Craig at RTDA '06 and told him so. He smiled. Everyone needs to met this Rabbi blender. Smoked two ounce sample based on recommendation of Ed from Paylesspipes and ordered some tins. Comes in 8 oz. and 16 oz. tins, or pressed if you like from C&D. Needs no additional aging to taste satisfying.
Just a basic, good old blend but in this case it's "holy smoke".
