Runowski at his best.

Bayou Morning deserves recognition as a benchmark Vaper and an excellent example of the genre. My sampling comes from a bulk purchase that I put up in Mason jars in May, 2010. It is a coarse cut mix of brown tone and black leaves with a rich, sweet and musty aroma in the jar, presented at exactly the right moisture level.

It packs, lights and burns easily, producing a good volume of luxurious smoke with a dark, fruity character and great body, delivering a naturally sweet, dark flavor with good balance, clarity, and medium strength. The Perique rounds-out the dark side flavors and provides an inconspicuous peppery tingle in the nose. Overall it is a very smooth, satisfying smoke; not complex, but interesting none-the-less.

Bayou Morning smokes coolly and dryly, without gurgle, goop, dottle or bite; and it is no wonder that it is -- or should be -- a staple blend in the inveterate Vaper lover's usual rotation.

Over the past year I've been comparing the full range of variation in the Vaper genre, those with: Orientals, and Cavendish, and Burley, and deertongue; with lemon, and orange, and bright Va.'s and reds; the sweet, the tangy, the spicy, the woodsy, the musty and the savory; in numerous cuts and flake forms. Oh, it's so nice to get back to a classic Vaper as exemplified by Bayou Morning.

A Very Good VA/Per Blend

The pouch aroma was of a straight forward tobacco with that Virginia tang and a little bit of sweetness as well. It has a very nice smell. The moisture level was perfect for smoking right away. The cut was a little bit chunky, so I broke it up and rubbed it out a bit. I used a 2 step packing method and loaded up the bowl.

From the beginning of the bowl through the mid bowl point, I tasted the sweetness of the tobacco and there was also some tanginess as well. The tanginess balanced out very well with the sweetness and the two complimented each other nicely.

At about mid bowl, the Perique started showing up. I still tasted the sweet and tangy flavors, but now there was a spicy/peppery flavor that joined the party. I love in when the Perique dances in while you are smoking a blend. The Perique kept building slightly as the bowl progressed, very nice.

This blend has a very nice, sweet finish with a hint of spice/pepper. It left a nice sweet taste on my lips. This blend is balanced out very well. It starts off nice with some sweetness and tang from the Virginias and right before it could get to a boring point, the Perique comes into play. This is a very good blend and I will definitely be smoking more of it.

 I Highly Recommend it!
