GL Pease Haddo's Delight takes the Virginia/Perique genre and stands it on its head. Besides the sweetness provided by the Virginias and the Perique, a bit of unflavored black Cavendish is added to lend a subtly sweet depth. On top of that dark Burley is added for body and a touch of nuttiness. The entire package is finished off by a light topping to tie the flavors together. For many, Haddo's Delight is a staple to always keep on hand.
This is one of the most complex tobaccos I have ever smoked. The raisiny woodsy smell and bouquet of flavors was very overwhelming and engulfing, but the high strength left my head spinning, and slowing down was hard to do with such a perfect tobacco.
GLP's Haddo's Delight is a decent 'baccy that can be smoked all day or; as I prefer, after my midday meal. Pull a bowlful out about a half an hour or so before to let it air/dry out a bit to reduce relights. Not overly complex, but enough to keep it interesting.
This is a very enjoyable perique blend with a fair amount of complexity. It has a nice aroma and smokes well. However, it's not my favorite perique and there are several that are less expensive that I think are better. Worth a try though if you like to sample different perique blends.
Who Is John Galt? GL Pease is... John Galt! Haddo's Delight is the Pentacle of Va/Per Bacci. Being a scholar of Aleister Crowley, & realizing the inspiration for this blend. Mr. Pease...you probably do not realize, that Perdurabo got his blends from local blenders & that there is no telling from what tobacco these blends contained. Virginias, Burley's, A request for Rum Soaked...Who knows? Strong Peppery Perique's! Aleister Crowley would have smoked them. This blend is perfection in a tin, for those that are searching for the Perfected Virginia/Perique blend. Your Quest for the Holy Grail, has come to an end, as mine has. Smooth sweet raisin rum veiled in Strong pepper Notes...Transforming into a creamy Union at its finish. Until GL Pease divine's the Exact Magical Formula of To Mega Therion's mystical blend, Haddo's Delight is a must for the Perique explorer to experience for H(I)MSelf.
