Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
I just finished a tin of Penzance and knowing that I most likely won't see another tin anytime soon scoured the Internet for similar tobaccos. Star of the East Flake kept popping up so I figured I'd give it a go. First bowl in and I have to say, I th... Read More
Amazing English Blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
There are a lot of blends that feature just these three component tobaccos, but only Star of the East Flake does it extremely well. I'm a big fan of Turkish Orientals, and they really shine here. The stoved red VA is flavorful, and being stoved, add... Read More
My favourite US blend!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
This is an awesome tobacco: tin presentation, tobacco scent upon opening, easiness of packing, lighting and smoking. The aromas are wonderful, the smoke is a great experience. Best tobacco I've tried so far, it's a shame it's not sold in Italy! :(
Easily my favorite

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
The flake is better than the ribbon like everyone says. I bought some bulk which is good, but no where as good. This was my introduction to non-aros in a sample and I instantly fell in love. Nice mix of flavors and I find myself smoking it quite of... Read More
Just like they all say

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
Yes the flake is better than the ribbon. Maybe its in the process or the marriage of the tobaccos that helps, but all I know is it is sooo very good.
Better than Penzance?

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 8oz
Fresh out of the tin the Penzance Comparisons fall flat. 6 months in the jar and in my opinion it's a twin to Penzance. Given that this blend is easy to find and usually in stock, that makes it better than Penzance. I love this blend.
Good light English, not Penzance

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
I don't really get the comparisons to Penzance...to me this is nothing like Penzance. The tobacco here is much less complex. That being said, this is still a decent medium to full English that is very well balanced between the three ingredients, ha... Read More

Flake version very little to do with the ribbon one and,of course a lot better.
Great

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
This broken flake version. A robust and complex experience of bold smoky Latakia and spicy nuanced orientals. This is a swell smoking experience. However, I tend to like the ribbon cut better.
How Had I Never Heard of This Before?

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
Tin note almost exact match for ‘Quiet Nights’. This is truly one of the best blends I’ve ever smoked. Broken flakes of smoky Latakia. Most blends with a lot of Lat leave a heavy aftertaste from the oils. A very light and creamy smoke with a lovely ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 8oz
Full of flavor...but you must be a fan of latakia. The red virginia blends so well with latakia, plus add in some oriental and this is just a wonderful smoke. And yes, I enjoy the flake more than the ribbon cut.
GREATNESS

PURE GREATNESS
More stars please!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 8oz
I would give this ten stars. As everyone says it’s better in the flake. It breaks apart very easily and burns wonderfully. Latakia and orientals are mostly what you’ll taste but there’s still a very nice, slightly sweet, bready base. It tastes mo... Read More

Being a frog on a log smoker as well as the other Morton blends from Mclelland I had to find some decent English blends since sadly Mclelland closed production. I took a stab at some of Cornell & Diehl's offerings. Being a Latakia and Turkish fan... Read More

This blend is absolutely fabulous. Very spicy with flavor. The stoved red virgina really shines thru sweet hay taste. Very good blend,
Flakes make a big difference.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
I enjoy Latakia mixtures, so after being a fan of Star of the East Gold, I thought it was high time I tried this flake I kept hearing about. By “hearing” I mean it seemed like everywhere I went online there were references to this flake being a must ... Read More

A musty delicious tin note, taste is full flavored. An all day smoke, or good ending to a long day.
GREAT!!!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
Dry smell with a lot of presence, with a lot of personality. I do not know if it's really a flake because it came to me as broken flake, but it's still easy to handle and pack. Smokes easily and burns slow with a very pleasant dry flavor. This tobacc... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
Flake has better aroma and taste than ribbon cut. It can be rubbed and folded, making it highly portable. Good smoke after meals. Oriental and Latakia play a leading role and are earthy and woody smoke. Virginia is a spice and is not detected so much... Read More
Screw Penzance
October 26, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake 2oz
I am in agreement with several other reviews that this is probably better than Penzance in my opinion. It certainly doesn't suffer from the aristocratic absence of availability as does Penzance. This is a smooth full bodied English that is pure satis... Read More
