    McClelland St James Woods and Blakneys Best Bayou.
    Both are broken flake and smell like ketchup(the first sign of perfection).
    To me, SJW smokes a little more towards the perique. And the BBB is a little more balanced, but still heavily vaper.

    Have you tried it straight? Not conventional wisdom obviously, but it's actually very good - nothing like as harsh as you might expect.

    C&D offers a bulk perique that is quite good, and you can still find jars of Percy Martin's perique from time to time, which is very good indeed.

    Another unconventional offering is the Picayune blend put out now by D&R. Seriously unique stuff there, plus its shag cut, so that dovetails nicely with the sailing tradition! :th1:

    Best of luck in your search and Enjoy!


    Edit: a quick search on ebay turned up a jar of the good stuff...

    Esoterica Dorchester seems to have the right amount of spice to me. Great flavor. And I've heard that Esoterica Dunbar has an even higher level of Per in it.

    Unless you like sour raisins, you can dodge the flake. You're right about the ribbon cut. It's a spicy butter ball. Love that stuff!
