Burley and Virginia come together with a dash of Perique in this blend made by Cornell & Diehl for pipe enthusiasts from around the world to enjoy. The room notes are strong from this one, so you might want to smoke it outside, but it’s a gorgeous blend with plenty of strength.

This is a really enjoyable blend. I’m not big on blends with burley but C&D got this one right.
I really enjoyed this blend. It reminded me of Mac Baren HH old dark fired which is another blend I really like. I consider myself an aromatic smoker but have a huge love for Virginia’s of all kinds primarily flakes. This tobacco is great for new smokers and advanced smokers.
For new smokers, this will be smoky and semi-spicy while being somewhat sweet. If you’re interested in trying tobacco that doesn’t fall in the aromatic category give this a try.
For advanced smokers, this gonna hit all the right notes for an all-day smoke. A little smoky, slightly earthy, the perique gives just a touch of spice and comes to a nicely sweet smoke. If you like nonaromatics but still want something sweet this is great.
