BTW: as we're creeping up on the season...be SURE to put Peretti's Thanksgiving Blend on your list of 'must have' orders for the Fall. It comes out in November on the Peretti website and it is absolutely a Do Not Miss event. So there.

Here's a link to Peretti's site

http://www.ljperetti.com/l-j-peretti-tobacco


Remember...the stuff is not put out by Peretti til November. This is just to mark your calendar, etc.

I missed out on this last year since I snoozed and loozed. And then out of the blue, RobJ sent me a very generous sample (more like 4 oz worth)!

Gotta say I'm very impressed with it and have been carefully rationing it. While it presents itself as an aro it really doesn't smoke like one IMO. Well worth acquiring, provided Peretti blends some up this year in light of the FDA deeming regs!


Cheers,

RR

I still have some from last year, bet it's still tasty. Wink
I only smoke it on Thanksgiving so it tends to last awhile.

Never had it, but I just ordered eight ounces. Have never had anything from Peretti I didn't like, so I feel comfortable with the order. And maybe it'll be a knockout, I'm thinkin'.

I just ordered one for the first time as well as some Royal and D-9575. I love American English blends and am hoping the 9575 will work for me.

Got a 4 oz on it's way today. Missed it last year.

Looks like it should be an aro based on the top dressings, yet they're subtly applied and let the 'baccy character come through. A guilty pleasure.

Cool

Called in my order, and was reminded about how curt and impersonal they can be there. Must be a Boston thing!


Cheers,

RR

Rande, I think you'll enjoy it. It's got a nice room note, but the flavor is mostly that classic top-notch burley taste. Nutty, woodsy, a bit sweet and very well balanced. If anything, the topping adds a bit of that slightly floral Uhles 255 kind of taste. Not as prominent though.

D&B...do not mention floral notes to Rande. That'll kill it for him.

Right. Okay, okay. It's "floral" for lack of a better word. Not in a Lakeland way but rather in an old school American burley with a subtle topping kind of way.

Rande, if you don't like it, I'll send you a near 4oz of McClelland 2015 in trade.

I had a similar curt experience with a phone order, however when I actually stopped in the store during a trip to Boston they were friendly and helpful...maybe it's a phone order thing.

Well, I did have the opportunity to sample some of last years courtesy of RobJ. So I'm confident it doesn't have the dreaded "L" character.

RR

Thanksgiving Blend is for sale starting today through Thanksgiving. I already placed my order. I wanted to order some DD also, but I've reached my PAD/Tad limit this month already. Laughing

Didn't care for it at all. Doubt if it's the tobacco. Think my taster is whacked. Maybe a brain tumor. Liking things like Wilke's 191 just fine. Even SWR Aro. Weird scheiss, man. scratch

Just my opinion: Peretti's Thanksgiving cake has a very similar smoke and taste as Peretti's DD. SO THE THANKSGIVING CAKE looks like a pressed version of Peretti's DD.

Well, the Thanksgiving Day might look like a pressed DD but itís like a Honda Accord looks pretty much like a Ford Fusion. Similar visual but different under the skin.

How about - the LADodgers look a lot like the Astros?

A Ruger Single Six looks a lot like a Super Blackhawk?

Wild Turkey 101 looks a lot like Amber Rum?

Hey this is fun! But itís enough.


Just sitting around this morning with a GIANT bowl of Halloween candy. We had ONE trick or treater last night. Clear nice weather. What the heck!

BH, for me the similarities in taste, smoke and smoothness are very similar. I'm not the only pipe smoker that feels the same. It's pressed DD with more added juice toppings.

For $20.00 bucks @ 4 oz. you ^^^^^^^^. won't go wrong!! But I surely wouldn't spend $80.00 a pound. No discount when you purchase by the pound. It's a nice HOLIDAY treat yourself. Oh, you won't be disappointed!!
