A blend of fine red and bright Virginia's balanced by Basma leaf from 2014 and Izmir Orientals from 2013, Sun Bear commends itself with subtle notes of South Carolina garden-grown honey from the personal beehives of Jeremy Reeves, head blender of Cornell & Diehl.

The natural honey complements the subtle drizzling of silver tequila and Elderflower for a natural, refined tasting tobacco with an underlying, swashbuckling boldness. Sun Bear is a unique experience for the connoisseur who appreciates a dance of flavor components dominated by quality Virginias.

    Cornell & Dehil Sun Bear

    This is a good blend, however, it's really nothing special. It burns very hot, no matter how slow you sip the pipe. I'm kinda glad it's not a regular product. It's good but not amazing by any.

    Nice loose flakes and perfect moisture level straight from the tin. The high-quality Virginia's are well complimented by Orientals and the honey adds just a bit of sweetness. I am glad that I grabbed a few cans, one for now and several more to age as I expect it to age well. All in all a lovely smoke.

    Pretty good little smoke here. The very light flavoring added to sweeten it up a bit. I didn’t detect any of the tequila, however. I wish I would have bought a few more tins before they sold out.

    Maybe age will do this baccy some good... I found it harsh...very rough edge to it. Could be that I'm smoking too fast/slow.....who knows. I'm not giving up on it just yet.

    So Nice!

    The tin note is amazing. Every time I sniff, even though it is much more complex, I think chocolate croissant! Rich and mature tasting with a real creamy sweetness. No tongue bite at all. I usually smoke VaPers and nonaromatics but this is a real treat. This is what an aromatic should be like! I hope they make this blend again in the future. It’s a winner!

    This is an exceptional blend right out of the tin. C&D blends can be hit or miss for me but so far I have liked everything in the Small Batch line with Sun Bear being the best so far. If you can find this it's well worth picking up.

    Tequila and honey....who would've thought. Nice and smooth, with a slight sweetness from the honey. Not much flavor from the tequila. Perfect moisture right out of the tin only had to use the initial light to finish the entire bowl of my Dragon Author.
