Esoterica Dunbar is another good tasting Virginia Perique blend. :puffy:

Laissez les bon temps rouler! I'm a big fan of the genre, so figured I'd chime in with a few favorites:

Escudo

H&H Anniversary Kake & LJ's Vaper & Frenchy's Sunzabitches

Daughters & Ryan SJ Rimboche

GLP Triple Play & Stratford

Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake

Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls
hmm...that's all I have in the cellar at the moment...and if you're into a strong tobacco (which as i recall, you are, seanz) get some blending Perique and try it straight--it's quite a different animal outside of a blend. McLelland, H&H and C&D have great ones.

@ yohanan: he he he...I edited my post because as soon as I posted it I remembered how wonderful Esoterica Dunbar is.

OK, so I popped this tin of Escudo Navy deluxe I had based on this thread. Laid out one roll to dry here for a bit.
How do you load it ? Rub it out ? Stuff it ?

Try it both ways Mick.

It does make a slight difference in the taste to me. I think the Perique is more pronounced when its rubbed out.

So my mood at the time dictates if I rub it or stuff it! (-;

I dont have a whole lot of experience with Vapers, but I will second OTDs recommendation of AJs Vaper. That is a damn tasty smoke and unique for a vaper. I've been looking to get my hands on a tin of Kajun Kake but have been low on funds here lately. My next paycheck is probably going to bring one hell of a TAD attack.

C&D Bayou Morning (Bulk version is ribbon, a tinned flake is available as well). Bulk is very economical but still a premium product). Ribbon version is a daily morning smoke for me,

A variant - C&D Red Carpet - Red Virginia, Perique, Izmir Turkish - a class flake.
McClelland Blakeneys Best Arcadian Ribbon - 50 gr. tin. Nice blend but a bit more expensive.

Rubbed it out. Gravity in my Peterson 999. Little tamping after char. Liked it ! Very nice indeed.
I think I'm becoming a va/per guy.

Not a VaPer; but if you like stronger tobaccos as was suggested above, and IF you like burley you might

consider Old Joe Krantz and/or Bayou Night--both have healthy amounts of Perique--coming in with slightly less

Perique is Haunted Bookshop--

OK so.. I missed out on that Peterson 408... and I'm on a VaPer hunt. So instead of PAD satisfaction, I'll use the same fund to satisfy my TAD ;-)
Here's my shopping cart:
GL Pease: Haddo's delight (see too much good comments on it to not order it) and Stratford (I want to try a straight VaPer from him)

C&D Sunday Picnic and Red Carpet

H&H AJ's VaPer (on OTD's recommendation) and Louisiana Red.
Gives me roughly 12 oz of a nice variety.
Thoughts ? Should I swap one out for another ?
