Louisiana Perique tobacco lends its incomparable, deeply aromatic, soft character to this blend of rich red and orange Virginias. Aged in cakes, this is a mellow, balanced Virginia tobacco of unusual depth. Broken flakes can be smoked outdoors or rubbed out further to suit any occasion. Mature Virginia.

Bufflehead Mallard was perhaps the lightest VaPer blend I ever tasted - and enjoyed. I only smoked one tin because, frankly, it was just too light for me but I can see where a lot of pipe smokers who enjoy VaPer blends would cotton to this one. Not as remarkable as the AC Petersen in presentation or flavor, but it did remind me of that classic.

The discription of Mallard is a dark Virginia mixture aged in cake form, than spun out into easily packagable ribbons. The mixture is ready for your smoking enjoyment. A smooth and mild Virginia mixture.

This reminds me of some of the McClelland Virginia Blends when first lighting it up.

The first portion of the bowl was like a very mellow sweet Virginia that required very little attention.

Towards the middle of the bowl the Virginia presents itself with a little more taste, although, a little more attention is needed at this point with some tamping.

Getting towards the bottom of the bowl I tasted a little sweetness from the Virginia yet not overwhelming. The mildness of the blend seemed as though it presented itself with a little more robust in the flavor.

I did not notice any tongue bite or harshness from Mallard as it is a mild Virginia Blend.

My only tim of Mallard arrived as a present from my daughter from a holiday in Poland. This is very smooth but lacks a nicotine hit. Very pleasant especially in the car - kept me sane in a long traffic jam but not a blend I would normally smoke being a fan of strong flakes - which can be a bit harsh in a car.
