Last night I was going thru Facebook posts and a couple of new tabacs are coming out. On a large scale a new G.L. Pease tabac called Sixpence is beginning to ship. According to Greg the new tabac is
A rich flake comprising a base of beautiful red virginias, a generous portion of perique, and just a bit of dark-fired leaf to add body and dimension. The tobaccos are delicately kissed with a special spirit, then pressed and aged in cakes before being sliced and tinned. The taste and aroma are deep, full and satisfying, reminiscent of traditional tobaccos from long ago.
On a smaller scale, Bluegrass Cigar Suite blenders Jason Brown and Jordan Kenner are releasing Homers Delight, The blend of black cavendishes was subjected to a ‘vertically distilled fermentation’ process, and left to age an extended period of time, allowing the subtle flavors of the tobaccos to fully develop. The tasting panel used during our sampling period noted flavors of ‘sweet chocolate’ and ‘glazed donut’. Room note is very sweet, dominated by the chocolate note described in the smoking experience. Due to the limited nature of the tobacco, it will be limited to 1oz purchases only.
Look for the new Sixpence at your favorite tobacconist and get a hold of Bluegrass Cigar Suite at www.bluegrasscigarsuite.com to try these out..
