Anyone know when more of this blend will be made? My budget couldn't support TAD this month and I had to act with restraint.

Hmm. Well, the last time it ran out they restocked it in a couple days. Stay strong.

Looks like there was a short window of opportunity overnight...

I woke up in the middle of the night and checked the site. Actually I hadn’t really thought about buying any of this, since I’ve kinda blown my TAD budget in the last several weeks.

I actually didn’t know they had run out. Saw it was available and recalled the buzz on the board, so I ordered a pound. And some SG, and some Nor’easter, which sounds like a good blend.

I checked back to see if it shipped and saw they were out again. The initial release of 150 lbs isn’t a large quantity, so I guess I’m not surprised.

Im looking forward to trying it out after all the positive reviews here though.

I've smoked multiple bowls now and have been pleased with how good it is. I'm not a fan of pepper bombs, I like the fruity, plum, fig Perique with some sweet spices better. That is the case with Rouxgaroux. Nice sweet red VA flavors from the Simply Red.

This thread is now killing me.

First I thought, naw, I don't need another blend. Now seeing that the perique is going towards the plum/fig side and away from pepper (any VaPer that does this is worth trying in my book) I wish I'd ordered some. I'll have to get some on the next go around.

I am smoking yet another bowl of Rouxgaroux now and enjoying it even more.

Perique can be versatile. Sometimes peppery or tangy or sweet or figgy. In this blend, it is fig or jam-like but not cloying. Perhaps that sensation is boosted by the Simply Red underneath.

This blend is destined to become a classic.

Had my 1st try yesterday....Nice flavor as it needs some age to smooth out as a bit rough on the draw (Perique). I like tobacco that transitions into the next flavor profile. I will try this again during Christmas week.

In an ideal world, Jim’s review would describe it in terms of its smoking characteristics, but without a numeric score, but I don’t think that option is possible.
I know I could write an objective review, but I also believe some people would likely have a problem believing that. I'm not sure I want to deal with that.

Yeah, but you're overlooking all the people that are anywhere from butt hurt to near suicidal because you won't write a review. Just goes to show you can't keep everyone happy no matter what you do. Just kidding jim, you should do what you're comfortable with.
