|Tobacco||Dark Fired Kentucky, Perique, Virginia|
|Room Note||2 - Mellow|
The newest release from Gregory Pease, Sixpence, is the first entry in the Old World series to feature Virginia and Perique. This broken flake also contains some dark-fired leaf, and a secret component. If you're looking for a flavorful, rich blend that doesn't contain Latakia, you'll love Sixpence.
This is one to try. It starts off mellow and smokey then a little nose tingle to the end. For me, not every day, but a very good evening smoke while relaxing on the porch watching the world rush past. I will keep some on hand.
A fantastic blend. May be one of the richest, earthiest I have ever smoked. May sound a bit "out there" but I most think of truffles just pulled up from the moist earth, pure dark chocolate. Caution to those who prefer lighter fair, this is not for the feint of heart. Heavy nicotine content.. Not an everyday smoke, but for special occasions it's No. 1 go to smoke.
I am a confirmed Latikia smoker. 24/7/365. I can't rave highly enough about how much I enjoyed this blend. I found it amazingly smooth and creamy. The Virginias and Perique give it a nice balanced flavor. It's a little young fresh out of the tin. Cellaring for a time would be outstanding. Lights well, burns well, and no mouth burning or acidity bites even in one of my large bowl short stem briars. I recommend.
Starts off at what seems to be far too mellow, by the time you get to mid bowl it has done a 180. A swirling pool of flavors that kept me guessing. Perique well felt in the nostrils, Virginia's well grassy/sweet, and dark fire toned down a subdued to a backdrop ... love it. 5/5 unique, balanced, and suspenseful!
Again Greg delivers, an awesome vaper, there is a nod to the penguins for sure, delightful, must have and cellar. Highly recommended.
Wow, good...darn good. Mellow, flavorful, burns well, cool smoking, zero bite, pleasant earthy room note, excellent with fine whisky Thank you Gregory for yet another hit.
