Latakia fans will love Cornell & Diehl Billy Bud! This is a blend of Burley, Cigar Leaf and Virginia too, but the real star is the Latakia. We recommend this blend for experienced smokers, as it's one of the far side of strong.

Smell and taste beautiful and strong
I think this is the strongest blend out there 1st time I smoked it I absolutely hated it but it grows on you by time As a cigar smoker I thought I will fall in love with it,,, in my opinion it needs less burly & more Latakia & more age on the cigar leaf used Definitely gonna cellar it for a year or so & I'm sure it will be much better & mellower
This is the tobacco that I always buy.
This is a steady delivery of strong, somewhat boring flavors. I can’t say I would buy it again. If you want “cigar like” flavors, smoke a cigar. Many of the characteristics I was hoping for (Padron like flavors), are completely absent. Being a current enjoyer of Padron cigars, I had false expectations of deep coffee, musty aged tobacco, smooth cream and black pepper (flavor nuances, not toppings of those actual flavors).. This was more like an unflavored cheap cigar.
I bought a pound based on a emailed staff suggestion and very glad that I did. Intense cigar and latakia aroma immediately upon opening. feels a bit dry but burns very well with big volumes of smoke, very reminiscent of a good cigar.
I like this blend. It has a nice spice and is quite heady. I would say this blend is a for the more experienced enthusiast. Cornell and Diehl are quickly becoming my favorite blending house! I also have been pleased with how quick my orders have been filled and the quality in packing the items.
Never liked the 'flavored tobacco', smells good, but for me tastes bad.
I like this!
Quite a strong Cigar taste that stayed with me...I am going to cellar it for a while..... I wonder if adding some Virginia would brighten it up...
