Tobacco, while not the most popular of substances these days, has long been known for its appealing scent. Unlike the smoke of a cigar or cigarette, tobacco has a rich earthy, spicy scent that many enjoy and it is this essence that Jade Liqueurs has attempted to capture in their new liqueur, Perique. Inspired directly by Perique tobacco, the "rarest and most precious tobacco in the entire world," known for its bold flavors of fig and peppers. The tobacco-flavored liqueur was carefully handcrafted to faithfully reproduce the "nuances" of its namesake. It even, somehow, managed to incorporate the tobacco into the distillation process. The 62 proof liqueur will be sold only in very limited quantities at $42 per bottle.
