    Anyone who has smoked this, and is it worth the price?

    It's a very good VaPer. As for price, too subjective.

    Yo sal - yes, and yes! The taste profiles of all 3 Acadian Golds are unique and super-savory. Smooth, too, as if they had decades of age on them.

    What's the difference between these blends pressure-fermented VA and VA plug such as Dan's Salty Dogs?

    The Virginia in the RO is like a malted or meady flavor, with the added zing of perique. Dan's Salty Dog, for me, I taste the casing over the Tobacco and is not really close to what Russ has done in this one.

    The price is rather high, but it is very processed and a limited run. If they had of had a process set up for a larger run, they might have been able to shave some money off costs. But, it just isn't the way the stars are lined up, but... However, for the experience (I) think it's worth it, but if others don't, that just means more for me. IMO, it is delicious.

    Bought it and enjoyed it. Bought more.

    I am glad we have a good admin and responsible moderators.

    Yo salt - re "What's the difference between these blends pressure-fermented VA and VA plug such as Dan's Salty Dogs?", Virginia that's been aged undergoes random fermentation(s). Acadian Gold is special in that the leaf is barreled, much like Perique with its burley. I don't know if Mark Ryan and RussO introduced a brew of the micro-organisms used in Perique, but Acadian Gold does have a unique flavor very reminiscent of some Periques.

    It has a taste reminiscent of some Perique because it is Perique. Instead of using burley to anaerobicly ferment the leaf they used a Virginia. Same process just a different type of leaf.

    This was a special batch which will likely not be seen again. It's worth every penny so don't miss the opportunity. You may well never get it again.
