Captain Earle's Pipe Tobacco

Made by Cornell & Diehl, these tobaccos are named for turn-of-the-20th century whaling captain, Captain James Earle.

 

Born in 1854, in Edgartown, Dukes County, Massachusetts, James Earle spent most of his life out at sea. Earle started at 11, beginning as a cabin boy on his father's ship, later serving as boat steerer before working his way up the ranks to mate and eventually earning the captaincy of the whaling ship the Charles W. Morgan.

 

Earle was the sixth of seven captains for the Morgan, leading nine voyages between 1890 and 1908, which was more than all other captains combined.

 

By Earle's first voyage in 1890, the Morgan was already pushing fifty years old, but it stayed sturdy and trustworthy throughout Earle's tenure as captain. After retiring, Earle would go on the state that the Morgan "had always been my favorite — being remarkably steady, a good sailor, and lucky — if you believe in luck."

 

Such a man has earned the honor of having his name memorialized throughout history. With Cornell & Diehl at the helm, Captain Earle's name is in good hands.

 

The history of Cornell & Diehl is not quite as long as Captain Earle, although it is still storied.

 

Started in 1992, Craig and Patty Tarler started out small, working in a garage in Pennsylvania. They were able to grow and expand, first to a garage in North Carolina in 1994, then a warehouse a few years later.

 

In 2014 the company moved down to South Carolina, merging with Laudisi Enterprises. This move tripled their available space and doubled their production. Four years later, they needed to expand even further, as the merger proved to be even more successful than they could have expected.

 

The Captain Earle's blends are made from a base of Virginias with various others to produce a number of pleasing mixtures. You should be able to find something you like from our selection.
