An okay smoke. Its like a junior to Black Frigate.
A nice smoke. Very moist in the can, needs to dry a little before smoking. No bite. Mild flavor.
Another great blend from C&D. Good tin and room note. I have no problem in keeping it lit. Burns all the way through leaving nice white ash. A mellow and satisfying smoke. I found it a little sweeter than the Black Duck, which I prefer. Hence the 4 stars rating. Definitely, a must-try.
Great smoke!!!! Highly recommend!
This tobacco has a great aroma and is very tasty. it is one of my favorite Cornell & Diehl blends. people love the smell when I smoke it, even my friend's wife who nags every time I'm at their house over my pipe tobaccos says it smell alright. it's a moist blend, give it a lil drying time before smoke. The flavor tends to linger in the pipe so you may want to use just 1 pipe for it.
Sorry got little or nothing from this tobacco. Just don't get this blend. I like flavorful aromatics and this blend just does not have it.
