Always the best
Not for the faint of heart! But... The most flavorful, full bodied and crafted tobacco you can buy. Great by itself if you can take it, but excellent when lightly mixed with a good turkish blend ..

Strong, Calming, Enjoyable. I Recommend this Tobacco to Veteran Pipe Smokers
I like this tobacco. Yes, it's very strong and spicy, but it also leaves one very relaxed. Regarding the spiciness, for me at least, it hit you right in the back of the throat. I'm also experimenting and adding it to some tobacco blends that need a little kick. In doing this I feel that the English blends seem to benefit from this more than not. I recommend this tobacco to the veteran pipe smokers.

Real Tobacco Taste and Pleasure
Picayune may not be for everyone. It is strong and has to be smoked as pipe tobaccos are intended to be. Slow and easy. After a few ounces through my favorite pipes its true taste and bouquet revealed itself. A REAL SATISFYING SMOKE of pure tobacco pleasure. A true tobacco taste and nutty tobacco room note. Nothing artificial. It's now number one on my list.

Picayune strong but satifying
Some of the strongest tobacco I've ever had. Not for the faint of heart. I'm going to mix it with some other blends to liven them up a bit. Very good! Highly recommend!!

Great mixer
If you want to spice up some bland tobacco, this stuff will do that. I found it a bit overpowering straight. It was pretty dry, so hydrating it might help. I'll keep some around for blending purposes.

Needs some age
This is one of my go-to blends. Fresh it can be a little harsh. With a year of age, it becomes a wonderful smoke. I smoke it in a pipe with a small bowl as it has quite a vitamin N kick.

Show this stuff respect.
At the time of writing this review I have been cigarette free for a mere two months. I was looking for something strong to help with the cravings. My tolerance for nicotine is quite high but this stuff kicked my butt the first time. I have to respect Picayune or else. The Perique spice is wonderful with a retrohale. Picayune comes very dry but smokes great without rehydration needed.

Let the Good Times Roll
Yea Baby!! This is Good stuff!! Delicious tobacco flavor, Nice balance of Dark and Gold tobaccos, Smokes smooth and cool with just a slight Perique zip to it. And if you like a good jolt of nicotine this packs a nice punch too. I also like the burn, unlike most fine shag cut tobaccos I've tried this stuff has a nice slow burn and a bowl lasts quite nicely. If you like bold tobacco flavor and enjoy a nice nicotine buzz you need to give this a try. I like to pack a large bowl fairly firm and sit back and Let the Good Times Roll.

Strong and Satisfying
This is a complex, spicy and very strong tobacco. Plenty of flavor and vitamin-n. Good price as well.

Picayune
Picayune worked great adding to the Elizabethan Mixture match to strengthen the weed, Although it didn't seem to be close EM, nevertheless its a delightful tobacco. You guys are great.

Daughters & Ryan Picayune
Extremely strong full flavor tobacco no additives or preservatives. This is the type of tobacco you don't smoke, you sip it sparingly. The nuttiness in the Burley will come out. If you try to smoke this tobacco I promise you it will smoke you first. I enjoy this tobacco while having a good strong cup of coffee. I honestly don't think I've ever met a tobacco and coffee that marries so well together. For those that are Burley fans beware how you smoke this when I say sip I mean sip this tobacco it is extremely strong. the nuttiness of this tobacco comes out really good not puffed,not smoked but sipped. The Retro Hale of this tobacco if you need a nose cleaning which means if you want to get rid of the hairs in your nose this tobacco will do it.it's like taking straight black pepper and sticking it right up inside your nose run out of the jar. But if you sip it, it's not bad at all and tolerable. This is definitely not for a new pipe smoker. For those that like to mix different styles of tobacco together the Burly really stands out if mixed with Green River black Cavendish blending tobacco. The Green River would definitely tame it down and it only takes a pinch per pipe Bowl.

Worth every penny
Long time camel 9 9 smoker, I have almost gone through 2 bags of this. This is the only thing I've found strong enough to compete with big tobacco cravings. It's spicy sweet and just plain great. It is amazing as a ryo and even better in a corncob. It always makes me sneeze but that is part of the pleasant experience. I didn't like it at first but really it tastes and feels like smoking ought to.

Long time cigar smoker
I was looking for a economical alternative to the full strength, spicy, habano wrapped cigars I’ve been smoking for too many years. Picayune is the only pipe tobacco I have found good enough to satisfy my flavor and strength profile and still enjoy everyday.

N'walins
Simply the best representative of the tobacco of St. James Parish. Picayune brings me home to New Orleans where I first tried perique. Give me a coffee with chicory and my pipe and i am transported from Wuxi, China back to N'walins

Brace yourself
Bought the 1 pound bag because all my regulars were backordered. Arrived dry as a bone and was surprised to see that it was packaged down in Smithfield, N.C. Assumed it was from some far flung corner of who knows where after reading the description. Good ole Smithfield. Been there many times to fish in the Nuese river. Anyway, I'm about halfway through the bag, and I can honestly say that this stuff is awful. After moistening it and test driving, I will say this- It burns even, there's no bite whatsoever, and that's about it for the pros. The cons are that it smells like a goat on fire, it doesn't taste any better, it'll make you dizzy, give you the hiccups, and put water in your mouth to the point you think you're about to yak. I'll finish what I got because I don't waste anything, but I won't buy it again. D&R should change the name from Picayune to Pick Something' Else.

A favorite
One of my all time favorites! Excellent bag note, earthy and fermented fruit. Punchy and strong by itself, for me a Vaper on steroids. I taste virginia and perique, plummy, grassy, and fermenty with a great kick. Fantastic in a small pipe. Love it as a condiment with anything else to add spice and strength. Blended 1 to 1 with Lane Vanilla Black Cavendish is a regular smoke. One I always want on hand, can't wait to see what it tastes like with some age on it. I buy it by the pound.

Picayune is irony
Strong and bold and rich. Somewhat cigar-like but the tart perique takes it someplace else. Apparently based on a now-defunct local New Orleans brand. Nice through a Gizeh extra full flavor. Hard to imagine it as a filterless offering. As a veteran FF smoker the nicotine does not seem overpowering to me, but pipe smokers might disagree. I imagine it would also be great in a cob. Like it a lot but probably too rich for an all day thing. Would order again.

Picayune Review
I love this tobacco. Drying it out seems to always make it more stout to me, absolutely great!!
1 out of 5
Full and Distinky
After reading some reviews I purchased an ounce to try in my pipe for an occasional vitamin N kick and to add some oomph to some milder blends. In retrospect this was a bad purchase decision. Not to say others might love it, especially for RYO, but after dutifully smoking through the ounce, and trying it with all sorts of tobaccos, the only things that stand out to me about it are its fullness (that was the good part), and the intense scent of cigarettes it left in my mouth and on my clothes. In search of another tobacco to fulfill the roles I mistakenly tried to give to Picayune, I found Peter Stokkebye's Perique 311 to be exactly what I was looking for.

Wow!!
This packs a wallop. I use it as a condiment to spice up Burly-Virginia blends, especially straight Virginia. Use sparingly!

oh mammy
Five star because it is what D&R says it is.I rolled up one this tobacco slapped my mammy nic level is high.Taste was ok,in haled slowly with no problem,be careful if you take a full draw. I will be blending this with cockstrong too see if I can mellow it down,although cockstrong does not need any help it is fine by its self. Ive smoked full flavored cigs for about 35 years.Picayune is a good full flavored tobacco.

Good Stuff!!!!
The tin differs in a big way than the bag.

Well..its strong...
Thats honestly all I can say about this one. To me it tastes like a strong bitter burley. The nicotine does hit fairly hard, but there is just not a flavor profile that the ingredients would suggest. The only redeeming quality of this tobacco is that its good for bumping up the nicotine in bulk aromatics, Captain Black, and the like without changing the flavor much.

A pinch of Picayune
Great condiment, forget about smoking it straight,nic level is high,and it hits very harsh, a pinch with a mild va is good,the smallest amount goes a long way, I find it to work well with athey, winter gold, Ramback, it brings the flavor to the forefront with a peppery kick,if blended just right, you have the perfect smoke!

Makes an excellent blender tobacco !
I purchased this to try when one of my favorite twist tobaccos was on back order for so long. I needed something strong to take it's place. This did the trick....you will get a very strong head buzz from this so if you are new to strong tobaccos take it slow if smoking it straight. It blends well with BCA, Perique, Latakia and or dark Kentucky. By itself it does kind of burn hot so smoke it slow & use a filtered cob. It does have a nice spice taste, but works much better as a blender for making something unique. Seems to come alive and mix well with other tobaccos and give a weak blend some kick.

Sooooooo strong! Couldn't even smoke it, so I gave it three stars.

D and R Picayune
I love this stuff! I had purchased a pound a while back, and thought it was alright. However, I had a craving for it again. What a joy to be reunited! I love the perique, oriental, and burley combination. I also like the strength of this tobacco. I am also fond of burleys and enjoy a good strong smoke. This definitely delivers the goods. Also good for the workplace for quick smoke breaks. Thanks and good job to D and R for providing a good hardy smoking pipe tobacco.

could be better if it hadnt been allowed to dry out or exposed to mold
Picayune might have been a good tobacco if it had been fresh. The oz I got was very dry and a good bit of powder. Apparently the bottom of the barrel and old. I tried humidifying it but it soon started to mold. I got rid of the mold and dried the remainder. its so harsh one can barely smoke it. Picayune is suppose to be shag but its a ribbon cut. I would like this tobacco if it were truly shag, if it were fresh, and hadn't been introduced to mold some where along the way. I will think twice before ordering it again.

What's in a Name?
Good tobacco flavor with a bit of spice. Stays lit easily. Burns all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Best smoked slowly. Good choice for a new pipe smoker or an older puffer.

The tobacco that I have
The tobacco that I have tried is surprisingly pleasant with no bite what so ever so far. It is relaxing and pleasant to my taste, I am very satisfied with my choices.

Maybe try it???
It just wasn't for me. I tried hard to like it (smoked at least an ounce). I got an eggy taste in my pipe frequently that really turned me off. This tobacco is also very spicy-- maybe this should be expected. I like spice; but, this was too much for me. If you like very spicy tobacco, maybe try it. Just don't buy five ounces like me! I wish I could give this more stars, the company seems good... Maybe I got a bad batch.

A southern smoke.
Good Blend. Perique is loud and in front, then Virginia, then Burley, and the oriental is a quite, smooth finish. You've got to like perique to like this blend.

Zesty mixer
Picayune is really good to spice up a blend and give it an extra boost of N. Comes very dry but comes to order quickly when mixed with something that is cased. Adds complexity to something that is simple. About 1 to 4 is a good place to start.

This is the strongest tobacco I have ever smoked. I enjoy it--outdoors only!
Customer Testimonials
This order came with five different tobaccos from P&C. I'm a new pipe smoker with limited experience with premium tobaccos, and non-aromatic to boot. Just tonight, I enjoyed my first pipe full of Picayune, and I have got to say that I have never had a tobacco this spicy before. True, I'm used to Captain Black and Smoker's Pride and other OTC blends (PA and Half & Half included) and none of the aforementioned had the body, the spice, and the tongue-smacking qualities that Picayune offered to me tonight. There isn't much to be said in terms of flavors, but I have read online that some use this as a kicker for blending and that it might not be best my itself-- but where does one gain experience if not trying everything humanly possible with a blend? So, when comparing this to an OTC blend-- no comparison. This is a no-holds-barred kick right to the butt with steel-toed boots, that will slap you without remorse, unless you eat something-- and even then, it's still a boxing glove but with the barbed wire removed. Even with these extremely descriptive words, I can't say anything more than THIS IS A GREAT TOBACCO! Use this if you want to boost your aromatics with some nicotine without altering the flavor too much (again, I'm a beginner and haven't discerned particular flavors yet). If I want a punch in the ribs while enjoying some Arrogant Bastard ale, I will turn directly to Picayune. Highly recommended.

Addendum to the previous review: humidifiying is key. That tames the harshness to a enjoying level, brings out a bit of a dark fired texture on the flavor, but the spiciness strenght that stays in the tongue, similar of a cigar will remain. fill up a 1.5 tin and insert a pouch moistener coin, leave for a week, or repeat the process again if you feel so. that will bring this nicotine beast to a human level. By no means i've found to be this a bad tobacco, it leaves less burn than some OTC, just be cautious, this one surpasses the dizziness a robust english blend gives.
MG of CALEXICO, CA
First of all, bought 1oz. and it was dry, so i humidify it for a while. My first smoke was a tad harsh... Now on characteristics: the smoke is not generous mostly cigarette-like, not a pleasant room note, it's very peppery, hints of nuttiness, a "halo" of habano on the earthy side, and also nicotine to spare. I would add a pinch to any light aromatic just for that extra kick. A friend of mine calls it 'El Tuco' like the character from "The Good, The bad and the Ugly"
MG of CALEXICO, CA
I am never without Picayune. It is very high quality tobacco. Strong? you ask. . . let's just say that I love strong tobacco, but this is simply off the rails. If you can smoke it straight, you either have a death wish or the nastiest lungs of all time! That said, I use Kentucky Select Red (60%) and Picayune (40%) and get what I think is the best smoke in the world. PipesandCigars has about the best price you can find.
RB of Suwanee, GA
I like strong tobacco but this one is off the charts! Best used as blend. Might be interesting to try with D&R Ryback Gold or even Three Sails. By itself, it'll knock your socks off! Good quality at reasonable price as with all D&R tobacco blends.
BB of Brimley, MI
This stuff kicks by itself. Got a half day of nicotine before I was done with my first morning smoke. I blend it now with Ryback or something different, maybe 30% Picayune is my limit. Smoke less though.
