More correctly stated: It goes though a different fermentaion process than regular tobacco.

Perique is allowed to hang and air cure until the leaf has browned and the stem is still green . The leaf is washed destemed , bundled and pressed at around 7 tons of pressure . Oak barrels is used . Believe me it takes alot of tobacco to fill a 55 gallon whiskey barrel . It also need to be kept in a cool place in the summer time .

I am not exactly sure just what is being said in the article. But it appears to me that since the buy out in 2005 they have just been processing tobacco at St James perish and the tobacco is being grown by other farmers. from who knows where. Are all these farmers supposedly on perish land?

I don't see how it is possible that this one producer has the market cornered. He may have the current market cornered but that market is the result of a product that is for the most part not supplied. It is not saying much when you are the only person selling something when you are also the only person making it.

Perique is good stuff and expensive, but I've only ever smoked it in a pipe. It has a certain spiciness to it. I don't think it has to be made in a hollow log or in St. James Parish. I'm certain that if one wanted to duplicate the curing technique, they could in there basement. I'm quite certain that anyone who has the time and patience can produce Perique. Hmm, makes me wonder how it would be in a cig ? :)

Yep, There are several of us that have made Perique. It is simple to make, there is no "magic" involved

What strains are used to make Perique? Can anyone share the recipe? I'm very interested in Perique and have the basic understanding of the fermentation process and pressure. I would just like to make some for myself rather then buying it.
