Light brown to black ribbons with a bag aroma of just what it says - orchard fruit (I smell apricot, peach, cherry and maybe some blackberry as well as who knows what) with a backdrop of latakia and perique. Too wet to smoke without some drying time. My first thought was that this blend should not work on any level.

But it does! Yes, it has the orchard fruit/berry taste up front and center (at least initially) but there is a dark spicy woodsmoke flavor to the rear that gets more noticeable as the bowl progresses. Also a slight tingle in the throat that could only be caused by perique. Still, this is a lot too fruity for my tastes. But wait! The further I went down the bowl, the more this morphed from an aromatic with a sidecar of pizzaz to a typical latakia-forward/aromatic crossover with the emphasis on the tobacco flavors. Experimenting with longer drying time caused the sauce to recede further and earlier but it never goes away. And that's the point, methinks. I liked what the perique brought to the table as well, turning this fruity blend into a more spicy one. This is a weird one that probably only the mind of Ernie Quint would ever envision, let alone actually blend. As I said, it shouldn't work, but it does. I had no issues finishing the 2 oz sample but don't see myself going down this path again. Again, no matter what I do, it's still too fruity for me, but if you fancy that flavor but want more tobacco taste in your bowl, this is definitely one to try. Let your hair down and be radical!
