|Over the time i have been pipe smoking i have noticed i have a thing for perique and after ordering some of my usual favourite smoke i decided to try one of glynns house blends.
Opening the pack there is a love sweet slightly savoury odour of maple a good staunch spicyness manifests itself but not overpoweringly so complimenting this is the nutty slightly chocolate like aromas of the burley and a slight sweetness of some virginias.
Loading it is very easy and takes flame like a charm.
The sweetness comes through first and over the course of the bowl it does become dry and spicy but burns very cool with next to no bite at all. It was too strong for me. But i get totally what glynn was trying to do here the qaulity of the tobacco is top notch and glynn is very passionate about his work.
Maybe i will come back to this tobacco in the future and give it another shot see if i can tame the strength who knows. But for pipers on here who love a good stout perique heavy blend this one is deffinitely for you.
Final thoughts are brilliant tobacco but a bit too strong for me personally
