Oh I have smoked Luxury Navy Flake, and enjoyed it. Also I realized today I've had a tin of McClelland Beacon for almost 2 years, and apparently that's a perique blend?

Yes, both are Virginia/Perique but light on the Perique. It's certainly noticeable but it's not a Perique-freak's dose.
This is also why Beacon Extra exists. Guess what is extra?

Nope. That's an American response. And it's really not true. You can compare them and see for yourself. Try it.
Canadians recognize it as Vinegar, an acetic acid nose. You get extra points for recognizing the kind of vinegar. 8)

Could you tell us about the symptoms of this claimed manliness enhancement?
Don't worry. Mostly, it's just sex-appeal.
Smoking? Not anymore. Not for a long time. What year is it where you are?
It has to be a visible sign, none of these intangibles.
Smoking isn't sexy anymore? Is that why they quit smoking on TV?

Well... it could be the kilts. I started wearing them shortly after I took up pipe smoking.

If you can burst into flame then that's sexy. You knew this. Satan is winning. But smoldering and making 2nd hand smoke (rare collectible estate smoke on eBay) is not considered sexy. It looks more like a skirt than a kilt, I think. You're eccentric and not in any direction that is going to spread.

Yeah, but note that he's not smoking it. That whole nation is eccentric. There is a reason that they're so far away, down-under.

So eccentric is sexy too?

Once upon a time there was a boy perique and he really liked this girl perique in his high school. He invited her to the prom but, girl perique did not like this boy perique. She had eyes for a tall, dark, and handsome, flake from Virginia.

So the boy perique moved to Africa to start a new perique tribe there.

He left on the Lynnville Train on a night somewhere between snow and rain.

For a little perique, I might suggest Luxury Navy Flake. For a little bit more--and it's one of my favorites- -perhaps McClelland 2015. For more, C & D Bayou Morning. There are plenty of others, that's just what popped into my head right now.
Luxury Navy Flake as a suggestion occurred to me as well. I think your suggestion list is a good one.

I would emphatically add McClelland St. James Woods. That is one of the nicest Va/Per tobaccos. Also Escudo & Luxury Bullseye Flake for the Danish fiends - they're quite distinct. GLP Fillmore in the Fog City series is another - very reminiscent of the original Rattray Hal O The Wynd - delicious though the Rattray didn't contain Perique AFAIK. Three Nuns would have been suggested 25 years ago (at over 20% Perique) but that is edging up into much higher percentages of Perique. In that territory (higher Perique proportion) there is a surprising discovery. One might presume that the blend is overwhelmed by Perique but mysteriously that's not what happens at all.

Higher Perique proportions:
GLP Haddo's Delight - apparently 18% Perique; it's a truly great blend.
C&D Old Joe Krantz - 25% Perique; the great meeting place between Virginias and Burley, another truly great blend
C&D Bayou Night - it seems like 50% Perique! There is a lot of Perique. It's one of the only blends that really is a Perique blend. But it's so smooth and beguiling that it's a real surprise. Delicious and unique.

None of the three are straight Virginia and Perique. In fact Bayou Night is an American style Latakia mixture in some realities.
Ah! I did not read this closely enough - I have some Old Joe Krantz in my cellar, too :) Will try that out tomorrow perhaps. I think I will order St. James Woods as I've heard of that often, and some McClelland 2015 or Escudo ... we shall see.

Thanks everyone! And Mr. Morley thanks you, too, for finally talking pipes and tobacco. :)

I have owned over the last 2 or 3 years 3 tins of St. James Woods, but I have never tried it. I put them into the box pass or traded them. They are gone. I will have to stop by and get a tin, and I think I want to try Bayou Night.

I like perique.

When I was a pipe newbie, everyone was raving about Pease's new Haddo's Delight. It gave me horrible headaches.

I visited the blend later, and it was wonderful. Just a bit much for beginners who don't know their own limits.

But I didn't really know perique until I got a chance to taste a few puffs of pure blending perique. I didn't die or anything. Try it, if you ever get a chance.
Haddo's Delight is the goo. Just got my first tin and I like it a lot

Figures.
You might like to know that Haddo refers to Oliver Haddo, who is a character in Somerset Maughm's novel The Magician. There are things, from that novel, that one should refrain from saying out loud over a tin of Haddo's, especially after the sun has set. It is for this blend that Pease was called 'The dark Lord'.
