• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

I have made different batches of Perique with a number of various classes of tobacco (burley, an Oriental, Bolivia Criollo Black, and others that I can't recall right now). All of it makes good Perique. The stronger the tobacco that goes in, the stronger the Perique comes out. I have not used a flue-cure variety. I would imagine that it also would work well.

LOL! No habla espanol.
Lol. Its not Spanish I believe it is French. Anyways, since being here at FTT I've found this tool very helpful since we have such a large international membership. It is also helpful when your searching for seed or information. Bob suggested this to me awhile back and it has been very helpful.

Mark Ryan has a new tobacco out called raccoons delight where he uses Virginia in a perique press.

Burge, thanks. Ive been pondering the idea of the perique technique for awhile now. Im interested in using japan 8, since its supposed to have a licorice flavor or aroma. I'd love feedback on japan 8 perique.

I wish I could give you that feedback, but I went through my jars to realize that Japan-8 is quite the only thing I have not periqued... I know from Prilep and Izmir that at least the Orientals keep some of their peculiar aroma when processed this way. Japan-8, despite looking somewhat like a dark air cured, can have a lot of sugar, so in my experience, it won't produce a very alkaline Perique (which has to be considered when blending with Virginia, for example). But I'm quite sure it will smoke well on its own.
