I am not a burley and perique person but that is what this basically is so for what it is it is a decent smoke. The delicate kiss of brandy is a nice touch and makes the mouth water while reading and smelling the can...it promotes sensational aesthetics unfortunately for me the joy stops there. I found this blend hard to stay lit though I was successful a number of times in various bowls however inconsistent.
Once you can establish a good burn it delivers a smooth tangyness which was nice to know it wasn't the beginnings of the bite but rather a calculated brandy tangyness. This was the best part for me. Not more much to note here. Not my particular blend but on its own merits its decent. You will probably want to try this if enjoy burley blends because of the touch of brandy makes it a semi-aromatic yet not grotescly so.
Wish I could say more. I got a couple of cans to polish off and may just cellar and see what happens next year.
The finest cube-cut Burley, chosen for its deep, nutty flavors, forms a robust foundation for this sophisticated blend. Rich, red Virginia tobaccos are added for their subtle sweetness and complexity, while the unique spice of perique provides added dimension. A delicate kiss of brandy polishes the blend to a perfect finish. Barbary Coast is delightfully satisfying, with hints of black walnut, dark chocolate, and dried fruits. The perfect "all-day" smoke!
