Peretti Park Square

Red Virginia, matured Virginia, and stoved Virginia are delicately spiced with just the right amount of perique to create a rich and complex blend whose character evolves and emerges throughout the bowl.

This is a review of the original version of Park Square that was comprised of McClelland tobaccos. The red, stoved and matured Virginias are tangy, dark fruit sweet with a mildly fermented sugary stewed fruit from the stoved, along with a bit of earth and wood. The red Virginia is slightly more noticeable than the other Virginias. It does have a little of the McClelland "vinegar" that smokers of that company's products will find familiar. However, in this blend, it's very mild and does not interfere with the flavor. It has enough perique to add a little sweet raisin and fig hits, but very little spice, adding a light complexity. The strength is closer to medium than it is to mild, and the taste level falls just short of medium. The nic-hit is almost in the center of mild to medium. Won't bite or get harsh even when pushed. Burns cool and clean and a little slow with a very consistent flavor from start to finish. Leaves very little moisture in your bowl, but requires some relights. Has a pleasant, slightly lingering after taste. An all day smoke. This production got 3 stars.

Update: 1-31-2019: I have been smoking the recent “McClelland-less” version of this blend. The proportions and properties of the tobaccos are the same, but the effects are different. This is less sweeter, less potent in every respect with only a bare hint of the “vinegar”. The strength and nic-hit are a step or two past the mild mark, while the taste is in the center of mild to medium. No bite, no harsh notes. Burns cool and clean at a moderate pace (unlike the original manufacture) with light inconsistency in flavor. It gets a tad stronger at the half way point. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, short lived after taste. An all day smoke. Two stars for this watered down production.

I'm working my way through a big Peretti order most of which are superb. I was less impressed with this Vaper offering. The VAs are nice and mellow. The Perique is not overpowering. But there is a mildly annoying casing reminiscent of magnolia blossoms beginning each bowl. Thankfully it dissipates into a very nice sour note (I'm not getting the sweetness others speak of). At best this is a savory/sour light bodied Vaper. All quality leaf, but the strange casing makes it only somewhat recommended.

Smoking now:

Sample bag smells mostly sweet woody slightly tart and some hay. Ready rubber moisture was perfect.

This is one of those woody earth vaper blends. A tiny bit of tart, some hay, lots of wood, earth, some dark fruit, and a fair amount of pepper and spice . Tingles the nose in the retrohale. I suspect there’s a healthy dose of vitamin P in here as I taste the dark fruit, spice, and pepper. Some bready notes as I continued the bowl. Not a sweet vaper blend. The blend does develop nicely with more of the bowl you smoke. Light mouth feel, pepper after taste, didn’t bite, smoked well. Probably repeatable if you’re a veteran Virginia perique smoker. Nic hit was a medium.

Outside of my wheelhouse when it comes to vaper blends but I’d you like perique a lot I would give it a try. 2 stars for me but if you like perique I would definitely recommend.

This is an OK Virginia Blend its have a very nice flavor and its Consistent. But nothing to rave about. It can be a bit bitey if not carefull. But there is better Virginias on the market with the same price point.
