C&D Exhausted Rooster in Peterson System 314 smooth
Blender: Toney / Tarler
Tin Description: C&D's annual blend for the 2008 Chicago Show. A tasty flake of Virginias, Dark Fired Burley and a dash of Perique.
Cut: Broken Flake
I bought an eight oz tin a while back and finally broke it up into smaller jars and 1 to smoke. The smell is again that fig raisin fermenting. This is one of my favorite blends with the right amount of sweetness and pepper. I do think that for a more perfect blend the perique could be cut back some. The flake is broken somewhat and is think cut like most C&D flakes. I rub out normally but have cubed it with great success. Using the Peterson system pipe with the blend rubbed out does get hotter than I like so sipping is critical with this blend/pipe. Flavors are slightly sweet, nutty and then the pepper. I think eating apple slices with this would pair well for some reason. I cannot smoke many bowls of this in a day since the perique can reck havoc on the tastebuds. This is a blend that all VAPER smokers should have in their cellar.
