Cornell & Diehl - Granulated Perique.

Spicy, strong, full of 'oomph'!

The granulated cut makes for 'grain' like pieces, and just the nose from the pouch indicates this is a pure, implacable, tobacco. Being from bulk the moisture's good.

Like I said at the start, the smoke isn't for the fainthearted. Sure, should you have a death wish, smoke a bowl neat! Joking aside, I quite enjoy a small bowl, neat, in the morning; imminent nicotine hit, plenty of spice to wake me up, and no nonsense! Albeit, I wouldn't wish for a large bowl! Considering the toxicity of it, adding a pinch to a weaker blend should transcend it to the strength required! It burns without question; cool, even, and mid-speed. I get zero tongue bite.

Nicotine: MORE than enough. Room-note: rank.

Granulated Perique? As good a quality Perique as you can get. Highly recommended:

Four stars.

Granulated Perique: Yep, it's perique and I like it.

This tobacco smokes exactly like the perique I know and love. It tastes of fermented/aged tobacco (similar to an oscuro cigar), with a strong spicy undertone and unparalleled earthiness. The tin note can be quite overpowering in a mostly good way. The granulated cut is just a short ribbon and the tobacco is a bit moist right out of the tin—unlike any C&D tobacco I have ever tried.

Adding a pinch of this stuff can spice up any blend.
