Review:
The Piment Leopard that I reviewed was sent to me by 96Strat from thp. The flavor was similar to Bhut but was fruity and slightly sweet. There was some bitter after taste after swallowing, but that went away soon. It gave me pretty string hiccups right away. The heat stayed mostly on the tongue, some crept toward the back of my throat. The heat level on this one was between habanero and Bhut, but probably a little closer to habanero.
