Germain's RJ Perique Pipe Tobacco 50g Tin
Notes: This is the latest addition to the Royal Jersey range, and contains a subtle quantity of genuine Louisiana perique. The fully-rounded taste of matured tobaccos.
There is a mild natural Virginia tart and tangy citrus, quite a bit of grass, light bread, slightly floral and sugar notes, and a smattering of fruit essence that may come from an extremely mild topping or the way the tobacco is cured. The raisiny, plumy, earthy, woody perique is fairly mild, and not very peppery as it is gently present. This blend is ribbon cut so thin that I consider it to be shag, and you should not smoke it dry or you'll risk a light harsh note. Won't bite, but has a few rough edges. The strength and taste levels are mild. Has a very mild nic-hit. It Burns cool and clean and a little fast with a mostly consistent mildly sweet and lightly spicy flavor as it easily vanishes to ash. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires very few relights. Has a plain, short-lived after-taste and room noted An all-day smoke that suffers from lack of depth and body, Might make a decent starter VaPer blend for the novice.
