After 6 months in a jar and smoking in a larger pipe it has gained a star.Also the top note has diminished.

Great smoky,ginger flavor. No tongue bite. Been smoking a pipe for 40 plus years, this brought back memories of why I became attracted to smoking the pipe!
perfect for the summer season

I think the marrying of all different components is quite balanced in this burley blend. It does not turn harsh as you progress with your smoke and seem to evolve quite nicely the more you progress with your smoke.

I agree with some here who stated this tobacco was under rated. The description of salty sea air was a little offputting, but it did peak my curiosity. I'm so glad I gave it a try. I kind of see where some might get a saltiness from this, but for me ... Read More

This blend amazed me. "How can tobacco smoke taste salty?" I asked myself. Well, it does, I don't know how but it does. This blend is the perfect match of sweet and salty. I truly thought the description was lying but here I am enjoying &qu... Read More

Webster's dictionary has Shandygaff as tasting like ginger-beer. Well, I don't know about that, but I do know that this is a very good smoke. The burley is very smooth, and if I didn't know better, I'd say there was some Virginia in it. There is a... Read More
Sea ​​breeze experience with a pinch of pepper.

The smoking experience is very nutty, salty and peppery, and it never gets harsh on the palate like other Burley blends.
Certainly underestimated tobacco

As Jeremy Reeves says on youtube, I thought this tobacco was underestimated. A simple and consistent natural tobacco taste is a preferred element for smokers who like them. A stunning blend of Oriental and Burley flavors. And Perique leads them and p... Read More

I bought this as I love ginger but found none. However I found a beautiful tobacco, perfectly balanced and I can imagine smoking this all day.... even with the salty taste.

At first I went into this blend thinking I would taste the salty sea air. I was surprised to het burley, cigar leaf and verginia. After half a bowl in a cob I tasted the sea. Not a bit of bite even being a little dry. My cob still jad a bit of unburn... Read More

It’s diffrent than other burley blends I’ve tried and that was my purpose of buying it. To experience a diffrent taste profile. A bit dissapointed though bcause of a somewhat salty taste that I didn’t like that much.
No thank you

Not what I thought it would be from the components.And the top note wasn't to my liking.I like fuller tasting tobaccos.

When I was a new pipe smoker someone suggested I try this and I thought they were having me on as a newbie. But once I smoked it, I was hooked. I smoke the stuff daily. It reminds me of summers I spent at Virginia Beach as a kid. This one may not be ... Read More
Salt and solid

Product: Cornell & Diehl Shandygaff Bulk
I was struck by the power of scent before burning, no hits, but is felt cold. Drag some leather in salt, which then burning it is clearly presented in the mouth. It is quite dry flavor with hints of sea air. You have to smoke it slow to discover its ... Read More
Salty Heaven!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Shandygaff Bulk
I have always loved the occassional salty aftertaste of some tobaccos, and I ordered Shandygaff hoping to find a blend that emphasized that quality. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! This blend is the DEFINITION of savory and salty. The previous review that... Read More

A bit too salty for my taste. It goes beyond the smell of an ocean breeze and is more akin to a mouthful of the salty brine. If you love salt and tobacco, this is your blend. After setting this blend aside for a while, I still did not care for it.Not... Read More
Very Unique BurPerTurk without Virginia

Product: Cornell & Diehl Shandygaff Bulk
I love the cedar / #2 pencil / salty taste I get from Shandygaff and it is not harsh or rough and the cut is much finer than most C&D bulk blends. I was wary not ever having a blend without Virginia or Cavendish to sweeten and smooth out a blend ... Read More
Not too shabby

Product: Cornell & Diehl Shandygaff Bulk
I'll be honest, at the beginning of the bowl I thought this was going to be a dumper. Overpowering burley with little dimension and a dreadful, coughing room note. Light too hot and you get... Sweaty gym shorts? Yuck. However, once settled in, the p... Read More
