|This is an interesting Virginia blend, with just the right dash of Perique for my tastes. Too much Perique, to me at least, is likely to put me off a tobacco. Another reviewer said that the tobacco bit him. I detected no bite whatsoever, merely a nicely composed smoke with good mouth feel.
My wife told me, upon being in the same room with me, that the room note was "really nice", which is a definite plus.
It is a mild tobacco, which accounts for a three-star rating. I generally smoke ropes, twists, etc for the nicotine jolt, so I might throw in a pinch or two for "medicinal" purposes.
All in all, a good smoke. If you are a Virginia fan, this could well be an all-day tobacco for you.

This tobacco whilst smoking it reminded me of Spyglass except there was no latakia added to it. Instead there is a spicy tingle in the mouth, the15% perique which has been added to this blend is the culprit. The perique is not strong thank goodness as I don?t like a tobacco with the aftertaste of pepper. The percentage was just right for me. It?s earthy, nutty and slightly salty on the palate and lips but very pleasant. I did not get any sweetness from the stoved virgina but rather a darker fuller flavour making for a Smokey blend. When I was smoking this tobacco I had an urge to have a pint of dark ale with it as it would make a great companion with it. It's good blend for those that like a lighter peique smoke like me
