Tobacco Tuesday RO Perique Series Mark Ryan, of the L.A. Poche Perique Company and our own Russ Ouellette were having a conversation a couple of years ago when Mark mentioned that he had some unique tobaccos that Russ might be interested in. One year, a number of years back, Mark tried making one barrel of Perique using leaf from each one of the four growing regions in what is known as the “Golden Triangle”. Each one of these four varietal Periques exhibit singular properties and flavors. He offered Russ the opportunity to create blends using these very limited tobaccos, and our master blender jumped at the chance. Each one of these four blends are very different, with Russ working with a variety of different leaf to maximize the characteristics of the Periques.
By the very nature of this experiment, the amount of these tobaccos is very limited. For that reason, these tobaccos and the companion Golden Triangle series are the only blends containing these amazing components. Russ was honored by Mark’s offer, and is tremendously pleased to bring these extremely limited blends to the P&C Faithful. You’ll want to get them before they’re gone forever. Enjoy a piece of pipe tobacco history in the making.
