Not for the faint of heart, this Virginia/Perique blend is composed of red and bright Va's and 25% Perique. Bayou Morning is a Perique lover's delight and one of Cornell and Diehl's most popular blends.
The SP description lays it out. Not for the faint of heart. If you're new to VA/Per's, don't go here. Go with a 10-15% perique.
Also, the particular Perique that C&D uses is very intense. It's dark, oily, musty deliciousness.
The VA's in the bl... Read Moreend are excellent. Sweet, clean favor.
The perique in this blend is above excellent. It's what perique should be. Hints of dark fermented fruit. Only slightly "peppery". A nice loose leaf blend. Packs and lights perfectly, smokes through with only the occasional re-light. No bite, no gurgle, only a small dottle left un-burnt.
Yes, it's full and intense. Yes, it strengthens as the bowl progresses. This is not a "light" blend, and not meant to be. It's heady and them some. I cannot say enough about the perique used here. The VA's are good, but there are lots of good VA's out there. This perique is special - very special.
It's full flavored and totally satisfying. I looked for years for "my" favourite VA/Per - this is it. Heads and shoulder above and C&D blend I've ever tried - I found most of theirs sorta bland. This - this is wonderful. I will be buying pounds of it. Read Less

Tad of the lingering fresh zesty Perique in the retro, like when smelling some pure and fresh. Mild sweet along with almost a tartness at times. Touch of smoke. Can really get the Perique building through on this one, and it weighs in over the Virginias as they move to the background and stay there. Having smoked pure Perique a few times, I highly recommend doing that as this one really shows it off along with the nice subdued Virginias that blend together well. Not sure if the Old Rasputin, I have been sipping along here and there, or the smoke is giving a little haze in the head.
Burns excellent down to a fine grey ash with little to no moisture in bowl. Easily managed with a tamp here and there, although proper drying for about 6 mins really helped. No bite incurred. Seems a little stronger Nic-er than most tobaccos I have enjoyed, even though it is rated a 3 strength at SmokingPipes.
Good any time of day, have had in morn, but it was greatly enjoyable this late eve-to-morn crossover. It's on the buy a pound list for sure. ◄8/10✠Skulls► Read Less

Have smoked a good 8 tins of this stuff, didn’t find the perique as overwhelming as some have said. Great flavor of just tobacco! Telegraph hill has more of a perique punch, in my opinion. Very well done none the less!
A solid Virginia Perique blend. It burns nicely, with a good, earthy aroma and flavor from the Perique, matched with the grassy sweetness of the Virginias, and no tongue bite. It's a really good smoke.
This is my first endeavor into the world of Va/per tobacco and boy did I make an outstanding choice! I am a huge fan of rather strong English blends like Ashton artisan's blend and by the reviews I thought I would give this a try. The cut,moisture of... Read More this tobacco is perfect. When I opened the tin the aroma wasn't over powering and I thought, not for the faint of heart, yeah right. I packed one of my favorite pipes and off we went. It was very smooth and lit easily. The flavor was odd because it was kinda sweet and just a touch spicy. I got to about halfway through the bowl and the spiciness started to pick up. The longer I smoked the spicier it was. What surprised me was it didn't lose the smoothness and gentle sweetness. I finished my bowl and I was reminded of the saying, don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. More appropriately because this tobacco comes in bulk as well. P.s. it would be wise to ease into this tobacco because it does seem to have a very high nicotine content. Enjoy. Read Less
Virginia Perique blends have become my favorite after a year of experimenting. Bayou morning tends to be my go to. Delicious flavors and natural sweetness and spice that only grows as you smoke down the bowl. Love this one.
I wasn’t too big on the flavor, it wasn’t as complex as I was thinking it would be. For some reason it had quite a Vitamin N kick for me when most other “stronger” tins don’t. I can recommend if your looking for something with a buzz to it.
So, as I've said before I'm not a va-per guy but I keep trying them to seek one I like. I'd like to start this off by saying this stuff came WET like stuffed in a tube sockand dragged behind a boat wet. Dumb me didn't check it before I stuffed it bag... Read More and all into a jar. coincidentally it grew some mold.i dumped about an eighth of the bag out to get rid of the moldy stuff and laid it out to dry. Once dried it burned nice and clean. I don't know if it's just the perique in general or the specific perique they used but instead of the peppery taste I've come to expect from perique it just left a faintdirty taste on the back of my tongue. The overall taste wasn't bad despite a slight blandness to it; but needless to say the search continues. Read Less
I admit I'm very biased toward British blends. I thought I would try this as an occasional break just to mix things up. It turns out, I'm not particularly fond of this belend, but it is acceptable. However, I won't order it again.
Based on the reviews and ingredients I ordered a pound of this when it was on sale (I'm a big VaPer fan). I found it to be very disappointing when fresh - a bit of spiciness (almost burning on the retrohale) and a touch of sweetness, but no tobacco ... Read Moreflavor. I'm a former cigarette smoker and this reminded me of spicy cigarette tobacco. After trying it in various pipes with various packing methods I gave up and jarred the rest. I just came back to it after about 6 months aging. Better, but still nothing to get excited about. There's a bit more Virginia tobacco flavor now, and the spiciness is still there but it's still nothing great. I'll give it a another year in the jars this time before sampling it again. I suspect this one demands aging (and I've found that to be true with many C&D bulk tobaccos - maybe because of the high turnover in sales). I also suspect this is 'manufactured perique' (made with added flavorings rather than the traditional processing). This would have been a 1.5 star review for the fresh tobacco, but it gained a star with the 6 months aging. Will update the review in another year, but for now I'm still not impressed. Read Less
This stuff is great! After reading about the perique content I was expecting it to bash me over the head but it didn't. Instead I got a blend I can smoke all day that is well behaved and tasty from start to finish.
As the name suggests,morning is a nice time to smoke this.Smoke slowly,and the flavor come out,and you won't get bitten.alternate with a sip of coffee,this will clean off the palette and amplify the flavor,just stand by for a little nicotine.
I’m not a fan of Bayou Evening. At all. Was hesitant to try this. WOW! Just a no-thrills VaPer that’s very approachable for novice and pros. I find something new with it every time.

It's a rare tobacco that burns excellently all the way to the end leaving fine whitish gray ash and minimal dottle. I only ordered an ounce to try it out but I'll definitely be getting much more to smoke through the hot summer afternoons and evenings.

Read MoreD do not have high grade VA's but I think this blend in of itself disproves that theory. The VA's are full of depth and richness, full flavored and absolutely satisfy my VA cravings. The perique used (%25) adds a whole other dimension to this blend that really takes it up a notch compared to the majority of the VaPers that are on the market today. If you are sensitive to Perique, please stay far away from this blend, Those of you who enjoy it and can't seem to get enough of it, look no further as this will definitely satisfy. An all day smoke in my book and the nicotine satiates my cravings and I constantly need nicotine flowing through these veins.

One of the best va/ps on the market. Maybe even ~the~ best. I know that's a bold statement but so is this tobacco. If you like full flavored va/ps with some punch you'll like this. Just be careful not to jar it too moist.

Delicious, abundant fruity Perique flavour on opening the tin. Beautiful red and bright Virginias in a medium Ribbon Cut. The tin label states: 25 % of Perique. “A whole lot”, is my first thought. Actually, it is far away from being a Perique bomb!
... Read MoreExcellent smoking conditions. I had never ever guessed that there is as much as 25 % of Perique in this mixture. The Perique is always there, fruity and peppery, often taking the lead, but never covers up the Virginias. I can detect bread notes, very little hay and no grass notes. The flavour range of this mixture is limited, but eventually leads to a well balanced, tasteful Va/Per mixture with quite some backbone. Normally I prefer aged, matured, dark Virginias. Nevertheless, these red and bright Virginias are well selected, very tasteful and donate a welcome, light, natural sweetness. No tongue-burns. Soft, pleasant nose-tingle on retro-hale. Nice mouth-feel and aftertaste.
I do not recommend DGT (Delayed Gratification Technique) with this mixture, although it is generally recommendable with Virginias. Here it leads to an unpleasant, acrid taste. Once lit, finish your bowl. Over all a harmonious, tasteful, top level Va/Per mixture. One of the best Perique forward Va/Pers on the market. It’s among my favourites now. Read Less
