On this episode of Tasting Notes, Shane shares his thoughts on G.L. Pease's Penny Farthing. The first shag-cut mixture in the G.L. Pease line, Penny Farthing is a blend of bright and red Virginias, spiced with Louisiana Perique and a hint of fire-cured dark Kentucky. Its extremely fine cut makes it easy to pack and easy to smoke, opening with a sophisticated sweetness and evolving in depth and complexity throughout the bowl to a rich, satisfying finish. If you're a fan of VaPers, or shag-cut mixtures in general, this is one blend you'll want in your summer rotation.
- Components: Dark Fired Kentucky, Perique, Virginia
- Cut: Shag
