    Just wondering how you guys prepare your flakes that come from our favorite blenders from North Carolina? C&D's flakes are thicker and stringier than a lot of flakes coming from European blenders, which tend to be a more dense flake, and at least for me do not fold and stuff well without...

    Just tried this tonight. It is the navy cavendish from Blockade Runner with orientals and latakia added. Here is the description of Blockade Runner: And here is Black Frigate: The tin says "not for the faint of heart", and they are not kidding. I suspect this is what the grizzled old sea...

    Hey guys can't throw up a link but I just put some Santa's Mistake 11/25/03 on ebay so check it out if you want :D Anyways, I've been smoking pipes for the last 3 or so years, and a good friend who works at a local pipe shop was getting rid of his collection as he needs some spare cash. My...

    Do any of you have any experience with purchasing bulk leaf for blending form Cornell & Diehl? I've been to their website and see they offer a small range. I'm guessing that they're offering as bulk the same varietals they use in their own blends. However, I have to wonder if they're holding...

    Is it an english blend? An aromatic? A balkan? I don't know. Three blends in one? Whatever it is, it's become a top favorite amongst all the blends I've tried. I do have to give it a rest and rotate to something a little more gentle. 2 oz tins lasted less then a week so I finally ordered a 1 lb...

    This tobacco reminds me of GP Haddos Delight because the perique is more piquant than spicy. It is a delightful change of pace from standard VaPers and it leaves me wanting to smoke another bowl. The beginning is a little rough but by the first tamp, the nice nuttiness of the burley comes...

    This is ribbon cut Bayou Morning and is not the same blend nor make-up as C&D Bayou Morning Flake which is "a much different tobacco from original Bayou Morning". A light bodied VA/perique blend with red stoved VAs. The aroma in the tin was kind of pungeant and not the most flattering. IMO it...

    Burley, Turkish oriental, latakia and perique. This tobacco seriously impressed me. Matter of fact it is close to what I hope my own attemp at blending will turn out to taste like, but I won't know that for a few more weeks. This is medium ribbon cut of medium and dark brown with a bit of...

    I've enjoyed reviewing both cigars and beer for the last few years, but having only just gotten into pipe smoking, this will be my first foray into this arena. Here goes... I picked up a couple tins of this blend after finding that I enjoyed many of the C&D blends that I had tried, realizing...

    This is my first pipe review, so please bear with me. I smoked a bowl of Guilford Courthouse by C&D in my Estate Hard Castle Sand Blast. I am glad I chose the larger bowl size for this one. After researching a little I noticed some people had trouble with a lot of relights. Keeping this in mind...

    Re: Haunted Bookshops This is a blend by C&D as well. It is a burly mixed with a touch of red Virginia and Perique. 3 stars out of 45 reviews on TR. The best thing about this tobacco is its name. Love the name, but I think it is way too burley for me. I found it to be bitter and harsh on...

    Re: Star of the East A blend from Cornell & Diehl-50% Latakia blended with Turkish and stoved red Virginias.. This was has 3 stars on TR with one review. I found this one to be a medium taste with good flavor. I dried it for an hour before packing my bowl and it had a great burn. Very...

    Was jonesing for some new pipe tobaccy and stumbled on this sample: http://www.smokingpipes.com/tobacco/by-maker/cornell-diehl/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=16944 Seems like a good deal. Can't say i've ever tried any of those before, but i've enjoyed other blends from C&D.
