Best pepper in the world

Here are some of the descriptions offered by writers and foodies about Kampot Pepper.

KAMPOT, Cambodia — A nearby sea, flanking mountains, a quartz-rich soil: It’s the perfect spot on earth, devotees say, to yield a product they describe in that rapturous vocabulary usually reserved for fine wines: “aristocratic, virile, almost aphrodisiacal,” with subtle notes of caramel, gingerbread and mild tobacco.
