Perique is a type of tobacco made only in Louisiana. The short story is that they grow the tobacco in one particular location, then process it by marinating it in its own juice. The end result is a tobacco that is extremely peppery and flavorful.
The Crescent City Cigar Shop has a house blend cigar that is made using Perique tobacco. It's rather delightful. I'm enjoying it right now with a good single malt.
Apropos of that, it's rather nice to be home.
