My girlfriend is a chef at local establishment. She told me about the tobasco rep coming to town to do a PK demonstration with some great history of the company to help drive sales. I was lucky enough to attend in the attempt to grab some free product. They actually had (unavailable for sale to the public) oak barrel chunks that have been used to age tobasco!!!! Now I know the arguement is out there whether wine oak barrels make any difference or not, but still its an exciting score none the least. I will be sure to follow up the results!!!
