Brigadier contains Latakia, cubed Burley, Perique, and toasted brown Cavendish with a smooth fruit flavor. The folks at Cornell and Diehl made this short cut and granulated for easy packing and superior slow burning.
I decided to try this because I liked most of the components of the blend. However, of all of these, I have never tried Perique and I thought something new would be interesting. On the tin, it was stated that the blend had a light fruit flavor. When... Read More I opened the tin, I was greeted by an aroma the could best be described as fruit that was well past its' prime. I also found the mixture to be a bit over moist. None the less, I forged ahead and filled the bowl of a churchwarden and lit it up. I tasted the Latakia with what seemed to be a sharp underlying note I assumed was the Perique. Overall, this was a different taste but not unpleasant. In the background was a fruity note different from many of the aromatics I have tried in the past. I smoked the bowl about two thirds of the way down and then found that it seemed to be too moist. When I cleaned the pipe, I found a lot of unburned tobacco in the bottom that was quite wet. Overall, it was not a bad smoke but the next time I smoke this mixture, I will let it dry a bit first.
