Super-Enjoyable Blend!

Product: Cornell & Diehl King Cake 2oz
I found King Cake to be top-shelf excellent in every way. I'm always on the look-out for complex, mutlidimensional "aromatics"... ones that let true tobacco flavors and aromas shine as boldly or more so than other flavoring agents. King Ca... Read More

This blend is top notch and one of my new favorites! To start off, I love aromatics. I also love the Virginia/Perique blends or the "vapors". The vapor blends have a spicy and sort of leather like flavor which comes off as strong. My favori... Read More

I'm not a big aromatic smoker other than navy blends. This is similar to that with some extra flavorings. Quality tobacco. It's nice to find a milder C&D blend. Usually they hit you over the head with nicotine. This blend is mild but has substance. I... Read More

I cracked a tin of King Cake at the start of Carnival Season this year. The tin note really does smell like king cake, so much so that it took me back to mardi gras past, eating some breakfast king cake from Sucre in my treme rental house on fat tues... Read More
Wish I could get it in bulk

This is just a great tobacco. I really enjoyed smoking it and those around me loved the room note. I would call it a mild relaxing smoke full of interesting flavors that isn't overly sweet. I will be stocking my cellar with as many cans as possible ... Read More

Maybe I had a bad experience at first. Maybe the planets were misaligned. Who knows! But, while I originally didn't like this stuff, I'm coming back to say, it's pretty good. Smokes hot and can get bitter fast, but the flavor is good & sweet and evoc... Read More

Can definitely taste the cinnamon spice of the perique. I wouldn't call it an aromatic because I didn't think it smelled all that good. Smelled better in the tin.
Give it a chance, and time

Originally, I didn't care for it. But the more I dried it out, it really grew on me. There is a definite note of sweet raisin, but it's not overpowering. It's barely an aromatic, I mean, its an aromatic for non-aromatic smokers. The flavors are rich ... Read More

I was gifted this by a good friend and I appreciate the gift wholeheartedly. However, this tobacco won't be made a permanent member of my rotation. I like a good topped tobacco and most "aromatic" blends that contain full tobaccos without t... Read More
don't expect sweetness

The blend adds perique and orientals that don't allow the sweetness of the cavendish to come out
Too much strong.

I think is more strong than other reviewers says. Probably, more Perique than necesary... I go to celar a few years.

This stuff is amazing, just enough topping to let the tobacco's shine through. Not overly sweet but it's there, all tobacco's play well together with the topping. Gets a lot of compliments on the room note. Going to cellar deep.
Not bad

Being from Louisiana i think i may have held my expectations a little higher than normal but overall a very enjoyable blend.
Great smoke

Ok, I know C&D says this will peak between 10&15 years. I still had to open and try it. King Cake is very good now but I think I will jar this cake for a while and order a second one for 2027.
