Cornell & Diehl: Orion's Arrow

Product Number: 005-459-0050

Much as Orion's Arrow points to true North and has served as a guide to travelers since antiquity, C&D's nearly equal mixture of Turkish flake, Perique, red Virginia, and bright Virginia ribbon can serve as both a fine entree or destination for those in search of a bold and balanced blend.

A Sleeper

Product: Cornell & Diehl Orion's Arrow Bulk
In muscle-car terms, Orion's Arrow is what one would call a "sleeper." There is a lot more under the hood than a look at the relatively bland exterior leads one to expect. The blend is an unprepossessing, medium brown, springy ribbon cut, exhibiting ... Read More

Just about chewable, strong thick smoke, smooth and not bitey, a retrohalers dream. I have tried most of C.D'S bulk blends, Old Joe Krantz, Billy Budd, Haunted Bookshop amongst my favourites and had never ordered Orions Arrow, I don't know why but no... Read More

I'm glad I happened across this blend (love the smokingpipes.com Tobacco Locator). I'm a fan of both VA/Perique blends and VA in general, but I also have a long standing love for Balkan blends and the intoxicating Orientals they contain. I often wond... Read More

Here is a CD blend you can sink your teeth in. Pretty stout for an all day smoke and it will dirty your pipe so have some pipe cleaners handy. Leaves a lot of residue. Nicotine is high. .
Very good

I love this bend. The Turkish really shines, with the Virginias and Perique making up a flawless rhythm section. It combines like a Miles Davis album to create a unique, deep, contemplative bowl. The smoke has a tasty spiciness and a chewy texture. T... Read More

Orion's Arrow does not taste bad but is a little Oriental forward for my taste. I will revisit the blend after a little aging.

I tried this for some variety, and the title says it all. This is a great smoke, spicy, no bite, great cut. Came a little moist, but air is everywhere. This mix, for me, balances Turkish and Perique brilliantly. Nice strength. After smoking this for ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Orion's Arrow Bulk
I love this blend. I bought it as I was curious about the Orientals but it has made me fall in love with Perique. It is spicy, sweet, citrusy with a great mouth feel. It currently sits as my top blend and led me to try other Perique blends from C&... Read More
