Wessex Sovereign

I have always smoked Escudo for my Va-Per fix and thought I would give this a try. It is very close to Escudo in the taste of the blend. Because of the curly cut it also in very small coin form. The smaller size makes it a little easier to work with so it will find a place in my rotation. Where your straight VA normally will have a sweet type of taste, the addition of Perique to the blend takes the sweetness down a notch and adds a little pepper/spice to the mix. This makes for a more subtle and interesting smoke in my opinion. If you never tried a Va-PER blend this would be a good place to start.
