If you are a smoker and after the price rise of tobacco in Japan , maybe we can discover another way of enjoy the tobacco .
In the world of alcohol we can see all kind of liqueurs , so why not a tobacco liqueur ? yes , that’s ecxatly what I’m saying , a Tobacco Liqueur . Don’t think it would taste ash or smoke . It has a quite interesting taste and its name is PERIQUE LIQUEUR . Here is some tasting notes taken from slashfood :
“The aroma is unique, but with touches of cognac, woody tones, Perique tobacco, spices, and briny sea air. In addition I was surprised and intrigued by a complex base of fermented notes in the aroma which bring to mind just a touch of belacan or bagoong alamang suspended pleasantly within. Some could think this a negative aroma, but as in the iodine brine of a good seaside single malt Scotch, it adds a unique touch that brings the other components together. The taste is sharp, but smooth, with a mild sweetness that balances the fire in the liqueur. The tangy fermented Perique tobacco comes through more so than in the aroma, as do the hints of spices. Then it has a woody finish combined with fine leather, as if you were sitting in an old leather armchair, in a cozy library where your favorite grandfather had smoked his pipe a few hours before.”
PERIQUE is a type of tobacco from Saint James Parish . Lousiana . And because It is a rare tobacco PERIQUE LIQUEUR is made in small quantity in a artisanal process .
The person behind this liqueur is T.A. BREAUX , famous for his high quality absinthes , some of them you can even find in Japan ( but recently out of stock ) .
Perique would give you another point of view about the tobacco taste . Forget all your complexes and just enjoy it .
