P & T Magazine tobacco review. "This blend, a savory compote of Virginias with a goodly hit of Perique, has already achieved cult status, and I understand that there are haiku composed to it in laud and honor. I may not go the haiku route (I would have to smoke it in a Tsuge), but this is absolutely magnificent. Layers and layers of complexity, swirling, changing down the bowl like wraiths appearing in smoke, are the product of the intricate lace of Virginia varieties. There is more than a little Perique, and this can genuinely be classed as a Perique blend, adding that wonderful stewed fruit element in the room aroma, and that unsounded depth in the taste. Some straight and nearly ascetic black Cavendish is added as a mere wafting, an enigmatic and sweet-tempered ghostly presence, making it even more amiable a companion to your briar. Finally, there is just a touch of air cured leaf, bring a nutty body, an occasional cigar-like essence sure to please. There are elements of chocolate, and it is a broad blend in presence. The room aroma is absolutely wonderful, even to the usually unappreciative. It is said to undergo an exclusive process. I would call it magic. Highly recommended."
