Great blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
Very interesting. Oriental based aromatic. Tin note is fantastic. Have received many compliments on the room note. The taste is orientals with a sweet topping. The bourbon and vanilla is very subtle but melds perfectly. The flavor stays through... Read More

When I first opened the tin it seemed too moist, but I couldn't resist. I filled a bowl and lit up. One match is all it took. Man oh man, I liked it immediately. Judicious gentle tamping and I never had to relight. Burnt to a white ash to the bot... Read More
Similar Topping to The Virginia Cream
February 05, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
No one, and I mean NO OTHER, does bourbon or whisky topping at the high level that Cornell and Diehl does. This has a topping similar to Pease's The Virginia Cream, though the components provide more toasted oats rather than sweet/grassy notes, and ... Read More
Light yet satisfying

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
This blend is tasty, yet very light in the mouth. The bourbon and vanilla is very subtle but prominent enough on the retrohale to get all the flavors of it. Very light, yet very satisfying and tasty. Well done Cornell and Diehl! I'll be stocking up o... Read More
Complex Yet Good!
May 27, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
The Virginias combined with Turkish, Perique, and Black Cavendish is complex to say the least! But once you understand what it's doing, then you realize that this is an excellent smoke! Bourbon and Vanilla flavor is distinctly present but not overw... Read More
Not a bad blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr Bulk
This is ok for a change of pace. Not much vanilla in either the tin note or the room note, mostly a bourbon forward taste with some subtle sweetness from the virginias and black cavendish. The burley gives it some body and the orientals and perique g... Read More

I bought this blend when I first started smoking pipes. The bourbon & vanilla were what drew me in as I was smoking mainly aros. This has since become my everyday smoke while on the go. The toppings are fairly light & don’t get in the way of ... Read More
sharpness present will not make this tobacco a "frequent visitor" to me

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
An intriguing blend that brings together a complex combination some might say a surfeit of flavors. Tin Note: Upon opening the tobacco, a boozy topping plays well with the hay-like aroma of the Virginia tobacco. There is a subtle fruity undertone, wh... Read More
A Standby Smoke

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr Bulk
John Marr is a medium-strength Virginia blend that leans aromatic in an easygoing way. All component tobaccos are present in the flavor, with Virginia taking the lead and the others in a well-balanced supporting role. Some thoughtful blending on disp... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
I wanted to like this, with bourbon and vanilla, but I just get cigarette flavor and scent when smoking it. Tin note is outstanding though! And it packs and burns very well and doesn’t seem to bite, even on a windy day.

Slightly sweet

Pretty basic with a slightly sweet flavor, Virginia’s very frontal and burns hot.

Johnny Marr Is One Rich And Smooth Fiddler
October 01, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr Bulk
The sweet, slightly fragrant pouch note gives little hint as to the rich and smooth performance that follows. Fiddler Johnny Marr works his strings of Turkish Orientals, red and bright Virginias, nutty burley, mellow Cavendish and spicy perique to ke... Read More

Tastes like cigarettes
March 07, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl John Marr 2oz
Smelled good in the tin. Once i packed a bowl n light it it was just a taste of cigarettes n head spinning nicotine. My brother also tryed it with similar results. Couldn't do anything with it and nobody else wanted it so i through it out.

Moist directly out of the tin. A Bourbon/Vanilla aroma out of the tin, reminding me of GL Pease Virginia Cream. The flavors are complex. The Virginia does a good job of staying throughout, and the Oriental gives it a good layer of additional flavor... Read More
