I was going through my tobacco journal yesterday and going over some of my experiences with blends i no longer have on hand to see if there might be a thing or two to put on the next TAD list. (Yes, i caved and wound up ordering a few things last night after doing my "homework.") However, when i got to the entry for John Patton's Cool Hand Fluke i noted the info copied into my journal from TR: Four contrasting Virginias combine with 40% Perique for a blend that is suprisingly smooth. Hmmmm...now i've done some home blending with Jewel of St. James Perique and i know from my experience with that stuff that if you put anywhere near that much of it in a blend you wouldn't be tasting anything else. In fact, just a good pinch in a bowl of baccy is too much. I've been blending it down well under 10% and it's still very detectable. Also, a quick look at the description at 4 noggins mentions nothing of the % of perique in the blend. I'm assuming theirs is the manufacturer's description. If so, i'm wondering where the original reviewer @ TR got his info. So what say ye? Is this a typo, perhaps just misinformation or is ole Johnny using a type of 'perique' that isn't nearly as strong as the original stuff from St. James Parish?
