Perique is a very interesting, and really flavorful tobacco. It's fermented for about a year, which helps it to develop a deep, rich fruitiness, with a spicy undercurrent. What makes it especially different, is that it seems to change, based upon what it's mixed with. Perique is used sparingly because even 15% in a blend is considered a lot. We've included one blend that is designed to be an introduction to Perique, one with a good amount, but very smooth, and one that has a significant amount, and is a classic.
