Rare and famous Louisiana tobacco known for its dark, black color and unique flavor when cured. Perique is a spice tobacco, usually used in Virginia blends. It has a dark, oily appearance, when cured and a taste of pepper and figs. Its flavor is a little strong, so it is usually found mostly in blends. It can be smoked straight, but isn't intended to be. Being acidic, it tends to alleviate alkaline tongue bite, which is so often a problem with Virginia tobacco, so it is recommend to blend this with your cigarette blends.

For questions about how to grow, cure, or ferment tobacco, we will share as much knowledge as possible, but our hands-on experience is limited. 25 - 50 seeds per pack. All of our tobacco seeds are open pollinated.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Now that the dust is settling I wanted to take the time and thank you for your generous donation to my brother-in-law Gary Thompsons Memorial golf tournament held June 22nd. It's local businesses such as yourself that truly help bring this tournament together. This was the 6th annual Memorial Tournament for Gary and we are now doing a scholarship in his name at Middletown High School. On behalf of the Thompson, Shukis family we thank you very much. I'm glad I found your place this past winter when I saw a little sign on Washington Street. Your staff have always been very helpful I should let you know, especially Calvin who has taken the time and gone out of his way to help me out whenever I'm at the store as I am definitely not a cigar connoisseur by any means. Look forward to seeing you again in person and thanking you personally. Take care. "
