Just a PSA...Peretti just put their annual Thanksgiving Day blend up for sale. I ordered one, and it was a good justification for getting a couple of their other blends, some of which are absolutely stupendous, as well.
Thanksgiving Day from Peretti is a refined aromatic with burley and Virginia, flavored with anisette, citrus, fruit and rum, but all subtly intertwined. 'tango sent me a generous supply which I have enjoyed and enjoyed sharing, and I still have a few bowls left for the holiday itself. Right now I'm trying to select and order rings for my wife for our anniversary using a power company gift card that was a rebate for an energy efficient HVAC system. It's sort of like trying to negotiate a loan from a Haitian bank at the grocery store check-out, frustrating.
...just a footnote on my post; ordered the gifts with the rebate gift card and it worked like a charm. Wife will have rings for anniversary and Christmas, and I'll have a tin of Apertif, if all goes well.
My order from LJ Peretti arrived half an hour before I left for the airport to fly to the West Coast Pipe Show so I got to bring the three blends with me.
I wasn't overly impressed with D-7485 but Boston Flakes is a winner. The Thanksgiving blend never got unwrapped . . . there were just too many other blends to smoke and lots of people saying, "you've gotta try this" all weekend. A wonderful problem to have.
