Rare and precious, this dark, fragrant condiment tobacco comes to us in wooden casks from St. James Parish, Louisiana, where it has been produced in time-honored fashion since the days when the natives pressed it in tree trunks. Use it sparingly in your blends for its distinctive cooked-fruit, musty, mushroom-like aroma and cool-smoking character. This version has been ground down allow for easier and more thorough blending.

This is the best cut
This is the best cut for a blending Perique in my opinion, the granulated bits mix nicely with whatever blend that you're putting together whereas ribbon cut Perique tends to clump a little and not mix as thoroughly. It does come a little on the wet side but it's getting mixed into other tobaccos and being used sparingly so it's moisture doesn't effect things too much. I Highly recommend this product.

An excellent blending cut.
Cut is good and makes blending with other tobaccos, like ribbon cut, pretty easy if done patiently. It definitely has the “Perique character” of subtlety by itself but becomes very significant when added to other tobaccos, changing their character and the blends overall strength more than one might expect. Adding it to an existing blend in very small amounts and waiting a day or two for the results is a good idea. This tobacco id pretty moist in the pouch but in consideration of other blending tobaccos, this isn’t a bad thing as many of them are fairly dry. In my first experiment I added 5 grams of the Perique to 50 grams of a Burley/Virginia ribbon blend. After thoroughly blending I tinned the mixture and waited three days for “marrying” to take place. The before and after change was quite significant and I think that in the future I may start with a 5% addition to test the final product before adding more if needed.

Nice way to change up your daily smoke.
First time buying it, and I really enjoy the aroma and smoke with just a small amount added to my favorite blends, just to mix it up a bit and add some complexity. I just added 2 Tablespoons to a pouch of Mark Twain Memoir, and it was a very good compliment. the small cut mixes well and it's shipped with a great amount of moisture. I think I will save some for a nice tin and do a long cure on that tin.

Strengthens any tobacco with a boldness. Leaves you dreaming.
I like it best with Turkish. If you mix it in, some say it likens to a Balkan type smoke. I like it when I have a nice amount of perique on hand at home to mix in with any tobacco for a new smoke.

Great for blending
Like the name says, it's for blending. I add just a little to Match Revelation and it really improves it for me. I will be trying it with some Virginia and maybe some other blends.

Strong nic is subjective
I add less then 10% to most of my English blends. I found this perique to be of high value, correct moisture level and fine enough cut to easily blend with my favorite English blends. As a ex smoker I just require more nic. Nuff said

TWO THUMBS UP!!!
Perfect cut for blending, the other Perique offered here is a long, "shag" cut that makes it difficult to mix in evenly to a blend whereas this one disperses nicely and gives more balance to the blend. TWO THUMBS UP!

Use sparingly a little goes a Long way
I am new to enjoying a pipe and as such have developed a certain, what I like to call, “flavor profile” and have stayed inside those boundaries...until recently. I read quite a bit about the history of this tobacco and had to try it. Naturally, I wanted to see what it was like by itself; this is not something I recommend as a practice but definitely something you should do ONCE...a small pinch...in a clean pipe (preferably a tasting pipe). The flavor was not what I expected nor did I get the nicotine “rush” I read about but all in all, I liked it. The experiment was something akin to tasting different types of salt (pink vs black vs kosher). It is a great enhancer to a blend you are developing for yourself or as a condiment to one that you may find a little lacking. I would suggest everyone have a bit in a jar on hand; you won’t be sorry. Honestly, I have a jar labeled “Kitchen Sink”, it is everything I have left from the various tobaccos I have tried and didn’t have enough left for a full bowl or sometimes a couple of pinches from some I want to play around with, lots of Lane blends, a bit of John Bull and of course a couple of healthy pinches of the Perique (the granulated mixes the best) and you know what? It is pretty tasty. Again, get some of this and see for yourself.
