Surely, enough has already been written about this fantastic and popular blend, but I am particularly enjoying a pipeful of this stuff this morning.
What is really striking me is how masterful the touch of Acadian Perique is in this blend. I am not much of a perique fan, but glpease seems to perfectly understand how to use this condimental leaf with extraordinary results. Kudos.
On a different note, this tin is over a year old, and I have to say, I think I enjoy this blend even more when it is newer. The year of age on this tin seems to have mellowed the flavors, and I think I actually prefer the way each of the flavors pop s bit more when it is fresh off the presses.
Am I nuts?
Either way: Yum.
