Cornell & Diehl: Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz

Product Number: 003-016-0346

Combining equal parts stoved and unstoved red Virginias from 2018 with a generous portion of matured, St. James Perique from 2002, Carolina Red Flake with Perique is a powerhouse of flavor. Layered with satisfying complexity, it offers an enticing melange of flavors and aromas, balancing pepper and piquancy with undertones of port wine, stone fruits, and citrus. The maturity of the Perique lends an unparalleled richness and nuance to the mixture, complementing bright notes with figgy sweetness, breadiness with earthy spice. While incredibly complex right out of the tin, it's a blend that will increase in complexity and continue to improve with age.

"We created Carolina Red Flake as a tribute to the Old Belt, to the traditional harvesting and processing of Carolina tobacco straight from Carolina soil. Building on that tradition, we now introduce Carolina Red Flake with Perique, elevating equal measures of stoved and unstoved red Virginias from 2018 with a generous portion of genuine, 18-year old St. James Perique. The resulting flavor balances pepper and spice with undertones of port wine, stone fruits, and citrus. It's rich, deep, and complex. It's how a Virginia/Perique flake should be."

Carolina Red Flake has been my favorite small batch release by Cornell and Diehl. I’m not really sure what the gentleman is saying about the extraordinary price of this blend because it’s almost the exact same price as every other tin of premium toba... Read More
18 year old Perique

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Carolina Red Flake with Perique is a fantastic blend. 18 year old Perique with sweet 2 year old Red Virginias. Cellar this for a few years so the Virginias catch up & meld with the Perique and you will be in for a treat.
Pretty sure its awesome!

I bought 3 tins and I am looking forward to them. I have tins of SP 20th anniversary dark flake which is probably pretty similar and it is amazing! I haven't smoked this yet because it was released maybe 8hrs ago. I feel like I should give it 5 stars... Read More

无法接受的味道
May 15, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
开盖闻起来非常酸,比圣布都酸。点燃抽起来不像V草,没有任何酸甜的味道,一股煤味土味加重坚果味还有种说不出的不好味道,抽到接近中后段的时候感觉腻的想吐,于是倒掉。无法接受这个味道,扔柜子里放着吧,不会再碰了。

I loved the Carolina Red Flake from last year. When I saw they made another Small Batch with Perique, I ordered several tins. Heaven! A previous reviewer had it right. Cellar a few tins and this will be awesome! Thanks Jeremy and Cornell and Diehl.

Critical observation

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
P.S.- I assessed the price per pound; two ounces is barely enough to reacclimate one pipe, so as to know how this blend truly tastes.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
It's definitely a young blend and would benefit with some aging. It's a decent smoke but it lacks complexity
So songood

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Oh man this stuff is amazing the 18 year old perique is refined and makes the smoke almost velvety the flavors deepen the further down the bowl you get I liken this to drinking a very fine wine
Strong Approval

This is a very good tobacco blend. You should buy it. You should know that my recommendation is essentially a guarantee. I feel lucky to have gotten a few tins before they sold out. End of Speech. Ron Swanson
Looking Forward To More Aging

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Going into this blend, I was curious how it would compare to the 20th Ann. XX Dark Flake put out by Smokingpipes and C&D, as their makeup and components are very similar. Upfront, the Perique stood out in its pepperiness. I agree with others tha... Read More
Absolutely Delicious
April 13, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Dark fruit and Rye notes. Sweet and malty on the finish. The Perique is the perfect addition to this already amazing Virginia. If this gets better with age it may just be a new all time favorite.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
So I popped the tin about 8 hours ago and the tin note reminded me of fig newton's, but a little more toasty. Upon smoking it I understand where that toasty scent came from. The Perique dominates this tobacco, it's not quite smokey in flavor which is... Read More
