Bought this because it's supposed to be strong, and boy is it?! After sampling it, I soon bought a whole pound. Incredibly spicy and intense, this stuff packs a heck of a punch. The nicotine is off the charts too, so if you're sensitive, beware! I fi... Read Morend it to be a bit wet from the factory, so I suggest letting it dry out a bit. Awesome tobacco. Read Less
I have been on a journey to find a VaPer that is unapologetically in your face. After hearing that this blend has 50% perique I knew I must get a hold of some. I have seen many reviews say that this is more likely 30% Perique, I can tell you that it ... Read Moreis higher. The bag note (I got 16oz.) Is of sweet bread and chocolate with a ghost of pepper left in the nose. In the bowl this blend is amazing. Tangy, bready, red Virginia and stoved red Virginia Cavendish really bring on a natural sweetness and then the perique slaps you in the face like the beautiful mistress that she is and I love it. Spice, red pepper powerhouse dancing on my tongue; the sweet and spicy mingling and washing over my palate leaving me like a child who just had their favorite candy bar. Lady nicotine is ever present and if your puff carelessly she will let you know she is not happy.
In all seriousness, if you are looking for an Outstanding VaPer with a high dose of Perique, this is topnotch. Highly recommend getting a few tins or a bag as this can only get better with age. Read Less
After reading the product description and the customer reviews, I kind of shied away from this blend. Yes, it's strong (it gives me the hiccups) but after tasting it, I ordered a pound. The wonderful flavor is worth getting the hiccups.
All I can say is that if C&D stop making this ill start a riot. Exclusive is hands down my favorite tobacco blend with the perfect balance between spices and sweet with a a nicotine hit that rivals stronger blends. Try it if you don’t love it get... Read More your head examined. Read Less
This is definitely one for perique lovers. It is in the VaPer family, but at 50% perique, I think it should be more aptly classified as a "PerVa". The perique is front and center in both the tin note and the taste. There is not a lot of ... Read Morecomplexity here as the red virginia only seems to support and round out the perique. As for the cavendish, I didn't get much of that throughout the bowl. The cavendish seems to only sweeten and cool the virginia. So you have a pronounced perique, supported by red virginia, that is in turn supported by some burley based cavendish. Again, it's not too complicated. But if you are looking for a heavy hit of perique, it fits the bill. It is spicy as you would expect (especially on the retrohale). This is a medium to strong blend, so I prefer to smoke in a smaller sized chamber and go slow as to not get overpowered. Your preference may vary according to your nicotine tolerance. This would be a good blend for cigarette smokers looking for a good pipe blend to try. The ribbon cut is typical of a C&D ribbon cut in that the ribbons aren't very uniform or very long. That seems to be a purely cosmetic thing as it doesn't seem to affect the way it burns too much compared to prettier presentations of other blenders. I ordered a couple of ounces of this in bulk and let it cellar for over a year, and it did mellow nicely a little bit. I would expect that it will continue to do so over time and will get better with age as the perique mellows and the virginia ferments some. Looking forward to what the future holds and revisiting this year after year as it ages. Read Less
This blend is amazing it is just what I was looking for. Strong, spicy, feels like it was made Exclusively for perique lovers, which I am. I love smoking a bowl of this at the end of a hard day. I will be putting into my weekly rotation
I had this years ago and it did not seem to have the advertised 50% perique. I can tell you after having gone through 2lbs of the current version it sure seems there and it has pulled up a chair let me tell ya.
I love this blend, it's stout, atleast for me its stout.
it's pretty spicy though i noticed the wider the bowl the less spicy it was which seemed odd to me.
the taste is great but its not something id smoke all the time, its kind of a straight line... Read More of flavor for the most part, nutty and bready
I dont typically re-buy tobaccos unless theyre really good, and this one...might be on the list again just because its different, and i like a strong one sometimes.

I absolutely love this, no top dressing detected, VaPer and nothing else, sip it slowly from a small to medium bowl, you should be able to handle it, maybe a little dizzy at the end....but I guess that's what you are after when you order this....mighty fine mixture, I don't think for blending...fine just as it is....not for the faint of heart.
I tried this one after a hearty dinner, I strongly recommend that you do the same and all good luck to you, greetings from Adelaide, Australia Read Less
