    I was given about half an ounce of what the gentleman referred to as a "true St. James perique". He said that it came from the original farm in Louisiana. He said to mix it with a straight VA at about 5%. He made it sound kind of rare which I do not know if it is or not. Does anyone know...

    Stopped into my B&M yesterday and hit a few Short Stories....while I was there he introduced me to his LFD rep. Cool Guy! He told me of a stick coming out by LFD that is the exact same blend as the Opus X (so I am interested to try it). Then, much to my surprise, today James stopped by my...

    Does anyone know if St James Parish in Louisiana is going to be impacted by the Mississippi floods? From what I can tell, the small plot where perique is grown is only 2.5 miles from the river, and I have no idea if this is part of the basin they plan on flooding by opening the spillways to...

    I got a chance to try this terrific tobacco thanks to a very generous bomb a little bit back from Jimmy James (User Name). It is my first VaPer. For years I had avoided perique after a bad experience or two when I used to blend my own a bit over a decade ago. I have recently begun delving...

    What do all of these tobaccos have in common? Answer: I blended them. I had some left overs and some samples, and I can't waste tobacco letting it dry out in a Ziploc, so they were rubbed out and blended in a single 4oz Ball jar. I was prepared for a lackluster, muddled result, but magic...

    Happy IPSD all! Figured I'd break out some 6 month old SG SJF to celebrate. So we open the jar and get wonderful prune, fig and dirty feet aroma! It actually almost made me sneeze! So we're in for a perique treat! The flakes are kind of thick and have bloom on them. Excitement building...

    Anybody get any St. James Flake from the new batch? I just opened a pound package. I was immediately stuck by the aroma; not what I was expecting. While I jarred it up, I smoked a bowl. I don't know what happened, if the box was mislabeled or if something went wrong at the factory, but it...

    A minor but nagging question. I'm not familiar with the St. James blends, but understand that both are highly regarded. As I like Perique, I would like to know which St. James is da bomb: Gawith's St. James Flake or McClelland's St. James Wood? Or are both St. Jameses equally popular? I like...

    The voice that almost everyone has heard passed away Friday. I always liked hearing him between DJ's with a smart a** comment, he will be missed. brianjames.com I heard about it on the Cigar Dave show. Online replay today at noon central.

    This store is a definite must for any cigar enthusiest in the area. The selection of both mainstream and boutique cigars is awesome, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the smoking louges are very comfortable. James and sons has a public smoking lounge in the front of the store, with...

    Here is a section of Suckling’s Blog from IPCPR specifically about Illusione & Dion. Another great cigar I had yesterday was the Illusione ECEJ. I honestly don’t remember if it was a corona or a lonsdale, but the cigar delivered wonderful flavors and class. It was like smoking a Cuban from the...

    Okay everyone. This blend is frustrating me to no end. I cannot get a good bowl out of this stuff. I have tried 3 different ways of packing, I've packed it dry and wet, and I've packed it loose, tight, medium and I cannot keep this stuff burning. I've also tried it in 3 different shapes...

    Thanks to James.......I am now homeless.....he blew away my freakin house. Am I upset? no freakin way. James sent a Platoon of Gurkha's to my home whilst I was at work and as you would expect, they left nothing standing......not even a brick. Sifting through the rubble I managed to recover...

    Hey everyone! I've enjoyed a few cigars with Jim in the past but finally had a chance to experience a first class herf with the MoB fellas. Looking forward to future herfs (if I'm invited!!) and of course keeping tabs on Jimbo...just kidding. It was nice meeting those of you who were there...

    I have decided to conduct a little VAPER ranking experiment by smoking these three blends exclusively for the next week. What's your ranking of these three blends? I will post my thoughts in the next few days!
