This is a very nice blend. It has a healthy share of perique, and while it's a complex blend the bulk of the rest of the blend seems to be Virginia. With plenty of burley, Kentucky, and unflavored cavendish backing it up, the sweetness of the Virginia is very well tempered, and it's pretty different from your run of the mill VA/per.

This is a hearty blend, with plenty of nicotine and a very robust flavor profile. While I enjoy the blend, it does at times border on being slightly too busy. This was a blend specially made for the members of, and it is a fairly fresh tin - only several months old. I think after a year or two this blend will mellow out significantly and, hopefully, transform from a very nice blend to an excellent one.

This is a nice blend, and I can't wait to see how it develops with age. I recommend it, if you can get ahold of it.
