Stout and Meaty

This is a blend that can only be described as stout.  It smells nutty and musty in the bulk bag, and is presented as a super coarse cut. It loads into the pipe easily and without too much hassle and is the perfect moisture for smoking straight out of the bag.

Its one of those tobaccos that will go with just one light and keep going, so its a nice fire and forget blend.  However, this is a blend with flavors that you won't soon forget.

Initially, its just the simple flavor of a strong and tasty burley.  Then, the perique comes in, with a bit of the VA's.

The closest flavor I can decide is steak.  Its a blend that tastes like the crunchy gristle that you get on the sides of a good steak.  I'm totally fine with that, but man it kicks like crazy.  Eventually the VA and the Periqe burn out and you're left with a smooth burley interlude, and it'll continue like that in a dance of sorts until the pipe is out.  So, nuttiness, then steak, then repeat until gone.

Yeah I think this is a keeper.
