Product: A & C Petersen Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Escudo is well represented in my cellar and for good reason. This blend ages with the best of them. Although, I really enjoy this blend with just a year of age on it. At this time when you crack a tin it has an incredible tin note of muscadines. The ... Read More
A good reissue
December 23, 2015
Product: A & C Petersen Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
This blend compares well with the original Escudo that I smoked in the 1960,s . It uses the perique in the right way , it adds to the taste but does not knock your sox off . I compared a 30 year old can with this new one and it showed very well when ... Read More

Product: A & C Petersen Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Let me preface these observations by stating that the tin I opened had aged 11.5 years and I really need to try a new tin to compare. I really like the tin note, for me is was an earthy, old hay, coffee, and fresh baked cinnamon bread. The thin coins... Read More

November 11, 2017
Product: A & C Petersen Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Best VA-Per I've ever had straight out of the tin. It has both the savory and grassy flavors just right. Tin note is a rush of fresh fruits, dried fruit and hay. There's no doubt it'll get better with age but it's great right from tin, and that's an ... Read More

...this is my "stranded on an island" tobacco. Rather than trying to describe the amalgamation of flavors in this stuff, I'll just say that if you love Virginia-Perique blends, this is ambrosia.

The current manufacturer's take on Escudo Navy De Luxe is a surprisingly mild and well-mannered VA/Per that exhibits near-perfect balance. The tobacco is well-behaved in the pipe, either rubbed out or simply stuffed. However, it is a quite middle-of-... Read More

Pretty much THE standard for VA-Pers. The undisputed champion. Escudo is what I measure every VA-Per against, and so far they've all come up lacking.

I buy multiple tins of this each year to age. Really 3-5 years is my favorite age - it's hard to sit on it longer because I'm dying to smoke it.

I've heard the name escudo in many reviews and have not found any really negative ones. I gave it a go and now it's part of my regular rotation. This stuff is very good and the perique is in just the right ratio to the Virginia.

Lived Up to the Hype

Product: A & C Petersen Escudo Navy Deluxe 50g
Read all of the rest, they do it justice. This is the apex of VaPer blends, along with the bite warning for puffing too fast. The coins are very manageable and will remain in disks for stuffing or easily shred into ribbons. Give it a try.

OK, everyone loves this one, so many comments in forums. 17 wheels of delight per tin? It is weight I guess, but lasts forever in the bowl. The gold standard, but luxury bullseye wins on quantity, price and everyday use.

One of my favorites. Subtle, grassy, with a slight fig tin note, and the spice of St James Parish Perique. I've had some aged for a dozen years that keeps getting better. It's a staple of my cellar. There's always twenty or more tins on hand.
