From the Tin: “Stratford is an enticing blend of delicately sweet brights and rich, ripe, red Virginia tobaccos, seasoned with just the right measure of fine Louisiana perique. The wonderfully nuanced interplay of sugar and spice is sure to delight the lover of this time honored combination. The room note is soft and subtle, the taste zesty and piquant. This is the one for the Virginia/perique fans.”


  1. The next on your list should be C&D Red Carpet but if you enjoy quite a bit of perique in your VaPer and still want that bready Red Virginia taste, consider C&D Bayou Morning.

  2. Elizabethan is my favorite too and I'm trying Solani 633 virginia flake with perique right now. Its a really light zesty smoke, a good summer time tobacco. Its kind of like Elizabethan "lite".

  3. Hi Bradley. Thank you for another great review. Have you ever considered the Dunhill Elizabethan (Match Blend) from Suttliff? I haven't smoked a ton of the original Dunhill EM but I would say this match version is definitely worth a try!

  4. Ever tried Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Navy Flake? It's an awesome VaPer, a bit light on the perique side, but it's absolutely delicious.

  5. Thanks Bradley!! It shall be rather interesting to see your progress with different blends on your quest for a possible place holder for Elizabethan Mixture.

  6. Chuck Steak? Man, you don't hear enough about them. Now I am hungry AND want to smoke a pipe.

  7. I smoke De luxe Navy Rolls and Cabbies Mixture for my Perique fix.

  8. Hhm. RobertMcConnell Black Parrot and Mc Baren HH Acadian Perique come to my mind.

  9. I think you might like to try C&D exclusive. It I believe is more to your liking. I buy it in bulk and it's fantastic.

  10. Always a fan of your tobacco reviews, bro. If you're looking for a lovely VaPer, allow me to recommend 'Telegraph Hill' by GL Pease. The caveat you gave for Stratford is the same for T.H., and it might contain more of a citrus flavour than you might be used to. Regardless, it's become a regular, delicious smoke of mine this spring. Thanks for taking the time to make your reviews!
