This blend seems to be a part of a recent "trend" or "revival" of tobacco's press into cake form. Not surprisingly, C+D has come up with an awesome, delicious, cool smoking cake. With the perfect level of moisture, easy to slice ...

Five O’clock Shadow? They should call this Uncle Si’s Beard. Seriously though, This blend strikes a surprising balance between the sweetness of the Virginias, the rich acrid smoky tartness of the Perique, with the earthy flavors of the Dark Fired fil... Read Moreling out the bottom. Not harsh, or overpowering. Maybe not one for my daily rotation, but definitely a weekender, after dinner smoke with a libation and a good cup of coffee. Has a moderate nic-kick. Moist cake (no fungi noted), but I was too curious to wait for drying time. Burned like a house on fire to the bottom of the bowl, but fairly cool. Perhaps, not the blend for beginners. Then again, as for strength on a scale of 1-10: C&D, “Exclusive” being a “10,” I would only rate “Five O’Clock Shadow a “6.”. A Perique lover’s dream. Read Less
C&D has lots of great offerings, but this really stands out as a tobacco done right. Easy to break apart, easy to light, and stays lit till the end. It starts with a slightly bitter note but that calms down into a smooth, enjoyable smoke. It packs a ...

Holy smolder! This stuff really burns down nice and slow. My whole bowl full burns down every time. Nice smokey peppery taste, likely from the Perque I reckon. Get a good nic blast from this as well which I don't always like, but I welcome every once... Read More in a while. Read Less
I’m a big fan of Va/Burs and Va/Pers but this one had just a bit too much burly for my taste. It was also a little too one dimensional. Also, that burley frog jumps right in my throat unless I’m really careful smoking this.
The crumble cake is easy ... Read Moreto work with, it burns nice and smokes quite well, it’s just a bit too strong and a bit too flat to be higher up on my list. Read Less
I meant to give it three stars, but once you input a certain number of stars, you can't change it. (That might explain why I sometimes see raving reviews with only three stars). Anyway, this blend is good if you like perique, but if you are more on t... Read Morehe Virginia side of the VaPer spectrum, I would suggest something else. I basically taste almost all perique with a touch of Virginia, and the burly is barely perceptible at all. It's not bad, but it's not one I'm going to be reaching for, since I generally like my VaPers with a moderate to mild amount of perique. Read Less
