I am glad this was reviewed by Jim and Dave because it gave me a heads up that this flake would be back for 2020. The flakes are a little moist but they smoke great right out of the tin . The soft flakes crumble easily like a cake tobacco . They smoke cool and mellow with hardly any sharpness and zero bite . Smokey Tangy dark fruit is the main flavor with a little citrus and spice and vinegar . The Perique is on the light side and seems to add to the red Virginia notes . There are some nice plum notes . Smoke good in a large dublin pipe better than a couple of my pots .Nic hit is about mild/medium. I like it a lot but enjoyed the 2019 version more . 3 1/2 stars and definitely recommended.

A fellow piper let me try some of this rare aged Perique and Virginia. Upon opening the tin, I could definitely smell the Perique. As I only had a couple of bowls this review will be as short as the smoke. First few puffs were very full tasting in a remarkably good way. This was described as a broken flake but as the tin was about empty, I loaded more of a rough cut if that makes any sense. Really good and strong flavored but not much of nicotine strength which really is not a factor whether I like a blend or not. Glad to be able to put another notch on my belt.

i so looked forward to this blend. and i am so disappointed. i love vapers.. not this one. i have tried it fresh from the tin. tried it dried out some. rubbed out. five different pipes. no luck. very oily. probably the very old perique. hard to light. hard to keep lit. A year later. It has come around. Tin note is negligible. But it has improved with age. Not as sticky. Easier to rub out. Just like me. Improved with age.

The 'broken' flakes were still mostly together, and they were probably the thickest flakes I've run across. However, they split apart easily, but even a fold-n-stuff packer like myself has to break then down more than a bit more to load them. The moisture was just right. If you like Red VA/Per blends, then all the tastes you expect to be there are, but not overwhelming so. A pleasant all-round blend, easily repeatable over the day.

A rich, stewed fruit medley of aged tobaccos. Tin note is earth, vinegar, and raisins. In the bowl translates to a dark stewed fruit. Almost mulled fruit taste. I believe this isn't a suitable replacement for 2019. But it's definitely a good replacement as a yearly release for the late lamented Christmas Cheer. One of the reasons I believe these tobaccos are so well received is in a season full of Aro bombs , having a hearty limited release tobacco ever season is a welcome treat for traditional tobacco smokers. And this is a good one.
