Cornell & Diehl: Bijou 2oz

Product Number: 003-016-0224

Choice 2003 vintage, Eastern North Carolina red Virginias crown this jewel.

Accented by sweet bright leaf and rounded by small-leafed Katerini, Bijou is married with a hint of honey before being pressed and sliced into delicate flakes.

This gem requires no adornment. Just time.

Estimated peak: 10-15 years

A replacement tin, original had serious mold. This tin is aged just over a year and I was told the mold issue was supposedly rectified but obviously NOT! This tin too has a significant amount of mold. Looks like I will hold off purchasing any blends ... Read More

this c&d blend is a true winner. this is my 3rd tin, and I love this virgina flake
An interesting Oriental, but it needs cellar time.

Bijou is an odd duck, though a very interesting one at that. A nice strongly flavored, medium-strength blend with an average amount of nicotine (N. level=5/10). Red Virginias give it a strong flavor. A very, very small amount of honey is detectable. ... Read More
Disappointed

The Katerini was there in the background, but my over whelming first and lasting impression was a grassy sourness. I was looking for the expected sweetness from the Virginias and honey, but it was nowhere to be found. This was the 4th bowl I’ve smoke... Read More
Honey and Toast

Product: Cornell & Diehl Bijou 2oz
I love this tobacco. The tin note is like honey on warm toast. It conforms easily to whichever style one prefers to load it into the pipe, and the taste and room note is very enjoyable. Highly recommended for those looking for a tasty, bready Virgini... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Bijou 2oz
I allowed mine to age a bit. Cracked the tin, and, greeting by mold. I tried picking out the mold, and smoke. Not really able to give a fair opinion, the flavor was obviously tainted by the overwhelming musk of the mold. Obviously C&D has not ... Read More
Boring

Product: Cornell & Diehl Bijou 2oz
For me this tobacco lacked flavor. And I mean completely flavor-less. Smelled great in the tin, but had no flavor in the pipe. It was also hard to manage, hard to light, difficult to keep lit. Maybe I got a bad batch, I don't know. All I know is I w... Read More

Another excellent Blend by C&D. Becoming one of my favorites, it has just the right enough sweetness and balance, and it will only become better with age.
great

Hard Virginia to Get Past

Product: Cornell & Diehl Bijou 2oz
I've been trying many Virginia blends over the past 5 years but this one stopped me. Maybe thats a bad thing since a pipe smoker should be open to trying new blends. However I'm in love with this one. The hint of honey is just that. Only a hint and b... Read More
Good blend with potential

The 2003 Virginias make this already an "aged" blend. With some more time I imagine the younger leaf gets more rounded too. Looking forward to trying again in 5-10 yrs.
Delicately aggressive

Wow¡¡¡ a nice surprise. In cold you can feel honey´s aroma, but soft not excessive... This flake, at burning gif you very good balance of sweetness and what to talk about oriental's force. Definitely a very good cellar of C&D... of the best...

As great as this tastes now - I look forward to what the years will do to this blend. Not overly sweet, but rich with little to no bite
A pleasure

Jesus! I love this stuff. No biting, cool burning and a dark sweetness with a medium strength. Highly recommendable.

This seems a lot like stoved Virginia to me. Taste was very similar to Mc Clelland Personal Reserve: Blackwoods Flake, a stoved Virginia. Even appearance is similar. Taste was sweet, perhaps pumpernickel bread drizzled in Karo syrup, or, dates/drie... Read More

Don't be irritated by the advertisement. Of course, the tobacco has ageing potential, but it's fantastic right of the tin. No drying needed, no special cutting or preperation needed, just stuff it in xour pipe. It has a rich, deep and dark flavour. N... Read More

Well, I cracked openy tin tonight. Rebreaking in a brebbia 6006 3/4 bend. Nothing but good flavor. Not sure about the katerini, only to say it must dynamically balance the bite throughout the smoke. Burns great out of thecan. Opened my tin up ... Read More

Bijou is definitely a Virginia blend that sets itself apart. As a VA lover you pretty much know what to expect from this delicious leaf. Natural tobacco sweetness, with high notes of citrus, slightly piquant flavors. This is decidedly different in... Read More

WOW!, this has to be the best Virginia Blend Ive smoked. It's flavor complexity kept me wanting more and more. With a pleasing musky room note. I'm going to purchase more for cellaring. If you love Virginas, you need to try this.
Excellent blend.

Very good, well aged red virginias with just a hint of katerini. I could smoke this all day long. Have been for a few days in fact. Excellent.
