New York Time Article on Perique

Good article. Very nice that this particular type of tobacco (and the techniques in its production) has survived. I'm glad the old man got to see it make a comeback before he checked out.

Going to have to keep my eyes open for this one, sounds like it is one not to miss.

I have been to that area a couple of times and this article sets the stage well. I remember Picayune cigs were made with this tobacco and as young men it was an act of courage to buy and smoke a pack hen we were out drinking. Now I see it as an additive not as a single tobacco.
This was a really good article. Thanks for sharing.
