Captain Earle’s Diamond Head is named to commemorate the marriage of namesake, Captain Earle and Honor Matthews. Cornell & Diehl also thought to call it a celebration of Atlas Blending Company’s recipe coming together with more modern pipe tobaccos. Red Virginia, Latakia and Oriental come together in this medium strength krumble kake.

Captain Earle's Diamond Head is my special "sit back and relax" tobacco.
I'm no connoisseur of pipe tobacco. Therefore I won't try to describe it's nuances or characteristics. Just sip it and Cap't Earle's Diamond Head will do the rest. I use a (light weight) bent pipe when I want a hands-free smoke clenched in my teeth. I use a Churchwarden (mostly) for Diamond Head.
One of my new favorites
A ribbon cut pressed into a block.... denser than ten Russians and incredibly flavorful. If the yellow sticker on the tin is the date of manufacture then mine was a year and a half. A sweet and sour creosotey smack you upside the head Latakia powerhouse. Smokes great straight from the tin with minimal relights. Captain Earl is my new favorite baccy.
