The sweetness of the Virginia is muted by the Dark fired Burley and the Perique is barely noticeable. Some age should improve this blend. I might get some tins to cellar before the FDA turns this rooster into a capon.
Some great flavors going on here. I'm about halfway through my tin, and I have nothing but good things to report. A wonderful blend; all the components and added flavors are in perfect proportions. There's clearly an added flavor but it's very mild, ... Read Moreand it compliments the component tobaccos wonderfully. I was apprehensive when I first broke the seal—thinking I'd bought an aromatic—but it didn't translate to a fruity nor sweet smoke. After two days that berry smell mixed in with the nice component tobaccos' aromas. This blend is where the line between Burley and Virginia gets blurred (at least for me), and per usual, the Perique is the proverbial salt & pepper on top of the dish. The nicotine level is about a 5/10, maybe 6; it's not crazy. Considering it was blended for the Chicagoland Pipe Show, with favorable flavors and a medium strength, it seems to me that this will agree with a lot of different palettes. I'm a huge C&D fan, having bought and smoked about 30 of their blends, and this one's easily one of their best. Read Less
Fall has finally arrived and it is time to reach for seasonally appropriate blends.

Read Moreu may I suggest giving Exhausted Rooster a try. The dark fired gives it a fuller body but never overpowers the virginias or perique. There is some sort of top note on here that adds a wonderful sweetness that compliments the mixture well. I highly recommend giving this blend a try! Read Less

Read More the virginia comes through if smoked slowly,and it is good.I am not having to swab out my pipe every five minutes,either.The multi layered tin liner has maintained the humidity level just right.This is (in my opinion) for smokers who have a tolerance for the nicotine component,but don't let this frighten you off.Try this if bored with the run of the mill full mixtures. - Carl Read Less
