I love a good English blend and not a big fan of aromatics. The blend of tobaccos caught my eye because it is very similar to Sam's blend (my absolute favorite). The question, is it an English or aromatic, made me think, well let's find out. This is ... Read More

Must have gotten a bad batch in 2017. I wrote a bad review then and regret it. A blender can have a bad day just like the rest of us. After shelving a tin for 2 years I gave it a whirl again, in an unsmoked pipe. Wow! Love it. "Stoved" 4 oz... Read More

By itself, this is one of the most boring tobaccos I have tried. It having Latakia and Perique, I was expecting a little bit more of a kick, but you only get a mild flavor one in a while. Otherwise, I got close to no taste out of this. I ended up mix... Read More
A good Cavendish based blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
For those wishing step up from a straight cavendish, this is a good start. Great tin aroma (plum like), room note is pleasurable. Tin was moist, but if packed loosely in the bowl is managablewith a slow steady draw. Just a slight hint or Latakia a... Read More

I just finished my tin of Cross-Eyed Cricket and I thought it deserved a review. The tin note is overpowering so be warned. It's almost sickly sweet, but the experience of smoking it is so much better. Retrohaling gives me a vanilla custard impres... Read More
Awesome blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
This blend is pretty tasty, doesn't bite, has characteristics of both English and an aromatic. A lot like Sutliffs eastfarthing, but with a slightly more obvious sweetness and rum aroma. Pretty sweet, but not too much, little boozy, notes of rum are ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
بحسب مكونات الخلطة لم يذكر انها تحتوي على كافندش الاسود غير المحلى وكما هي عادة الخلطات الانجليزية فان كافندش غير الملحى يحمل نكهة الفواكه المجففه ليعزز نكهة البيريك وهذا ما جعل باقي المكونات غير واضحة المذاق انا لست من متذوقي خلطات الاروماتيك وهذه ت... Read More

Easily the weirdest Tin note of all time. Gross in a I can't stop smelling it kinda way. Taste is similar. Gross yet unique. Like stuffing ones face with fruit juice while smoking a heavy tobacco. Keep swearing I'm going to never smoke this again yet... Read More

Definitely air this one out upon arrival. Very, very moist. Also, smelled like a gatorade bottle of Redman chew spit. HOWEVER.... after sitting in a jar for a couple of days, the smell mellowed out, so i loaded a bowl. And very surprisingly, the rum ... Read More
More Aro than English

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
This is more an aromatic than an English blend, at least the tin I received is any way. The tin and room note is that of a smokey buttered rum with a hint of caramel cream. Not bad at all, just not what I was expecting based on the reviews. The toppi... Read More

Very nice tin note. Moist but not overly so. After the charring light smokes smooth and creamy without any bite. It’s very mild and the rum punch is barely noticeable but adds a nice sweetness. All in all a very pleasant smoke and could be an all day... Read More

I have been smoking a pipe for a while now. But just as any hobby I embark upon I go well over the top; for example I did not train to run a marathon, I trained to run a 100 mile ultramarathon. With that said, I have been sampling as many differen... Read More

Kept this cellared for 2 years. What a nice surprise. Put it out for a couple hours before smoking.
It’s okay

I absolutely love this blend! It breaks "traditional" Latakia and Perique mindsets with an introduction into a new world of flavor!
Love the name

Cricket has long been one of my preferred smokes. In the grand scheme of pipe tobaccos I am a neonate, having tried very few. But Cricket has always had a good robust taste, with a pleasurable note. As a new piper I found it at times hard to keep lit... Read More

I thought the rest of the tin was going in my "potpourri" jar, but thought I'd give it one more try. I pored the whole tin out on a newspaper and mixed it up this morning. I left a pipe bowl worth or for tonight to dry a bit. Just finished ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
Well, I love most of the C&D blends I've tried, but this is a failure out of the gates. Latakia? Perique? and the rum - only a hint now and a gain. I've tried this two nights as a first and last pipe without any change. Air and cardboard; no flav... Read More
Black frigate light

Product: Cornell & Diehl Cross-Eyed Cricket 2oz
The title says it all. I prefer black frigate, however, this will do when frigate is out of stock. The latakia is less pronounced than frigate, but the rum is more pronounced. On the plus side, it burns and packs really well while refusing to go o... Read More

Growing up in Knoxville, TN everyone knew of the cross eyed cricket. Best catfish and hush puppies around. Sadly it is a childhood memory now. As soon as I saw this I had to buy it. It's a pretty good smoke. I could see myself sitting around the catf... Read More
