OUR LUXURY ELIQUID COLLECTIONS

PERIQUE

Our Perique E-Liquid blend uses the distinctive Perique tobacco grown exclusively on one small piece of land near New Orleans, Louisiana. The liquid is steeped to give the liquid a subtle vanilla-caramel note.

Perique tobacco is perhaps the strongest variety in terms of flavour and is considered by some to be the truffle of pipe tobaccos. Due to its powerful flavour it is never used on its own but instead blended with milder varieties, such as Brightleaf, to provide a spice and strength to the blend.

Perique gets its distinctive flavour from the barrel fermentation process that Louisiana settlers learnt in the 18th and 19th century from the local Choctaw and Chickasaws native American tribes. These tribes had been producing Perique for over a thousand years and it was  Pierre Chenet who learnt the process and developed it along more western production techniques.

The tobacco plants are harvested when the leaves are a dark, rich green colour and the plant itself 24-30 inches in height. After harvesting they are hung in curing barns until the leaves are dry but still supple. The leaves are then rolled into "torquettes" and placed in whisky oak barrels under giant jackscrews which keep the tobacco under constant pressure. Every few months, workers take all the leaves out, put the bottom ones on top and press them back under the screws. The entire curing process takes more than a year. The result is a powerful experience with fans describing Perique as spicy, earthy and rich.

Our Perique E-Liquid uses naturally extracted tobacco (NET) and  is available in 3mg, 6mg, 12mg and 18mg nicotine strengths.


Tasting Notes

A complex liquid with subtle notes of caramel and vanilla. You may also pick up on slight liquorice and malty undertones. Perique is a powerful tobacco with a distinctive flavour and users can expect this to come through fully in our E-Liquid. One for those with a broad experience of tobacco.

Yes it is a strong tobacco. However, the flavour is not harsh and the subtle notes help balance the vape. If you enjoy tobacco flavours you will love this.
Rich and tasty, this is a perfect choice for those trying to stop smoking cigarettes.
Red Vape's customer service was exemplary. My order arrived within a day of placing it.

This juice has quite a strong throat hit at 12mg but amazing rich tobacco flavour; quality e-liquid

My favourite liquid, this is an incredible tobacco flavour that gets better with age. It's a strong taste so if you're new to tobacco's or like something light then this probably isn't for you.

WOW, I've been waiting to try the Perique for a while after giving the Shade a try last time. I loved the shade but this might just top it. It's an eliquid for tobacco lovers and is definitely powerful as the tasting notes say. Top stuff Red Vape and thanks for the sweets.

This juice packs a punch, might not be for everyone as it is a very strong and rich tobacco flavour but if that's your thing then this juice is worth a try.
