G.L. Pease Caravan 2oz
G.L. Pease produces consistently reliable and high quality pipe tobacco. The Caravan blend is full of peppery, woodsy favors, but less intense than Blackpoint, which has the Perique in it. This is not a tobacco for someone that enjoys cased aromatics nor is for less experienced smokers. Caravan is a strong, full bodied, flavorful smoke.

G.L. Pease Fillmore 2oz
This blend is heavy on the perique. Probably the heaviest of all Vapers I have yet to try. I really like this, but would never recommend this for a beginnier or someone trying a Perique blend for the first time. This is for the smoker who likes perique and keeps shouting more. The Virginia definitely takes a backseat on this one, but is still present with a faint sweetness to compliment the omnipresent spiciness.

G.L. Pease Laurel Heights 2oz
GL Pease Laurel Heights 2oz tin
The good points include very good flavor, fairly strong but not overpowering, burned evenly once lit, packed well. And the bad points included more moist than my preference, slightly difficult to get lit, room note is typical of regular tobacco. Overall, I would rate it a 7 out of 10. Please realize I do NOT give out 10s easily (none yet). I have only found 4 that I consider better out of 26 blends tried so far. On a price basis, none of the four provide a better value. Laurel Heights is a very good solid smoke for the money spent!

G.L. Pease Meridian 2oz
GL Pease Meridian - Strong,, Memorable Flavor
When I first opened the Meridian 2oz tin, the tobacco seemed to be a bit too moist but had a very good, strong aroma that hinted at a memorable smoke. The first bowl was definitely too wet since it was pretty difficult to keep lit. After letting the reclosed tin sit for a few days, I tried it again. This time, I only needed to relight the tobacco once and the flavor was more mellow (but still strong) than the first time. Overall, this blend is definitely a keeper and worth giving a try.

G.L. Pease Quiet Nights 2oz
I will definitely buy again.
I really liked the room note; it reminds me of camping outdoors with a campfire. I like the after taste it is kind of earthy. Since this is a broken flake packing was a little different from the way I traditionally do it. I would let it sit out a bit longer before packing a bowl to get a better burn. I find this is great for a summer or winter smoke.

G.L. Pease Telegraph Hill 2oz
A Pease Vaper
And as such a very good perique presence. I find this to be a good blend, but it is not blowing me away from the first few bowls. I know enough experienced pipers who claim this to be the best vaper they have ever smoked, so it is no doubt a good blend. Any seasoned Virginia smoker and perique lover will not despise this blend.
The perique content is substantial, a trait I find with all the Pease vapers I have tried to date. As such, I would not recommend this or any of the other Pease Vapers to a beginner or someone trying a vaper for the first time.
For my tastes, this is similar to Fillmore, but with a touch less Perique. A good Vaper, but it won't push Escudo or Solani 633 from my rotation.
