The power of suggestion is amazing. I was just reading @SeanConnery ’s post about perique and I could have sworn, out of nowhere, I was tasting perique in the blend I am smoking. Keep in mind its not blind, I know exactly what I‘m smoking- 50/50 Dark Flake and Brown Bogie, heated and pressed. I moved on to reading something else, and I no longer tasted perique. So yes blind tasting is absolutely hopeless but it’s still a lot of fun.
