Cornell & Diehl: Carolina Red Flake 2oz

Product Number: 003-016-0225

A blend of the finest North Carolina grown red Virginias from 2015, Carolina Red Flake is Cornell & Diehl's tribute to the Old Belt. Taken straight from Carolina soil, these top-tiered Virginias are all grown, thrashed, blended, and then lovingly pressed and carefully sliced right here in the heart of old tobacco country.

Combining a hay-like grassiness with subtly sweet, tangy notes, it's a minimalist blend with a complex flavor: rich, deep, and earthy with hints of dried fruits and citrus. We're proud of our heritage — and we're particularly proud of this damn near perfect red Virginia flake.

Oh So Good.
November 03, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
Got my tins today and after 15 minute dry time I fired it up. This is a great red Virginia with a smooth taste and no bite. Mid nic hit and a wonderful bready and slightly incense retrohale. I definitely like it and I am not a expert reviewer, but I ... Read More
Beware of fake one star reviews
October 17, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I love all the one star reviews from people that are just mad they can't buy anymore tins. Seems a little, shall we say, immature. Anyway, Ive smoked several different straight virginias and this is definitely my favorite. Smokes great and tastes ... Read More

A New Classic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
After McClelland closed down I was worried that we wouldn't be able to purchase quality Virginia tobaccos. I was wrong. Jeremy Reeves at Cornell&Diehl proved that he has the chops to be one of the best blenders in the USA. I find the red Virginia... Read More
This is what Sophisticated American Blending Tastes Like
June 14, 2016
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I have, so far, been disappointed in the raw, dusty, burley-heavy American tobacco scene when it comes to Virginias, with the exception of McClelland. But this is wonderful, composed, but with that American "rawness" readily available. It ... Read More
Fantastic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I prefer this over McClelland Red Cake. Earthier, spicer and a bit more body to it. No ketchup/vinegar aroma is also a bonus.
A Strong & Tasty Red Virginia - Nothing Better
May 25, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
This is a broken flake tobacco... can be smoked as is or rubbed out into its course cut condition & has a long burn rate. Very satisfied with the flavor & appreciated the extra strength. One medium or even a smaller bowl would be enough to sa... Read More
Batch 3
November 17, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
The tobacco is in a broken flake like the last batch and looks great. There is a dark sweet fruit presence and no hay hint. This looks like a great VA and should age well.
I can't get it, so how can I revirw it ?7

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
The 25 tin a day limit is too high and leaves many of us wanting Make it 5 tins a day and keep the hogs at bay. I don't want to wait a year for more, and I'm probably not alone. Don't worry, you'll sell oit with a 5 tin limit, it will just give some... Read More

Best mouthfeel I’ve ever encountered
November 03, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
Very unpretentious tobacco. Very straightforward flavor profile and comes just as the description says it is. Dried for 10-15 minutes and wow. Robust and nice spice. But the mouthfeel is the best I’ve encountered. I have smoked many different blends... Read More
Good Smoke

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
Been smoking nothing but Virginia for close to 35 years and this one is at the top! It is unique as Red Virginia's go very little bite, cool burning, nice complex earthy flavor, with a little something "floral" on the retrohale. Very nice weekend smo... Read More

The best pipe tobacco I've ever smoked, bar none.
Great smoke!

I wish that I had ordered more. This is a really good tobacco blend.
DOA

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I'm not sure I like this very much. Not the tobacco. This Carolina Red Flake is fantastic...Ross Arlen T. was spot on in his assessment. It's exactly what I look for in VA flake and then some. And that's the problem. What do I do if I want more? ... Read More

Trumendous flavor

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I was able to buy some of this tobacco when it went up for sale and should have bought more. This is the best red Virginia i believe I have ever had. Awesome job to Cornell & Diehl and smoking pipes for making this available for us to enjoy.
Buzzed

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I'm a lightweight with nicotine and each time I've smoked this I've gotten super buzzed. I'd recommend puffing this delicious stuff after dinner on a full stomach - I've made the mistake of having a bowl on the way home from work and arriving a touch... Read More
Just as good, but different, than last year's batch
October 23, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
Last year's batch was great, that's why I bought 15 tins of it this time; this year's batch, in my opinion, is just as good, but in a different way. It has more flavor and is sweeter even though the percentage sugar on the tin is about the same as it... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake 2oz
I am a Virginia snob, and a long-time lover of McClelland's small-batch special releases. If this sounds like you, I implore you to try to get your hands on some of this; it's a deep, sophisticated Virginia that ranks right up there with some of the ... Read More
