Cornell & Diehl: Light of the Universe: Or Olam 2oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-016-0287

Fans of Cornell and Diehl may not be familiar with William Serad, but they may know his work. A longtime friend of C&D founder Craig Tarler, the two were frequent collaborators. Serad is responsible for creating several classic blends such as Cross-Eyed Cricked and Red Carpet. William was also a friend of the rabbi Ira Stone, who loved Burley, Oriental and Perique mixtures and asked Serad to put together some blends for him. Those blends eventually became the Hebraica series, each featuring the rabbi's favored components. Each blend in the series was named by Stone, inspired by the language and spirituality of Jewish tradition.

Or Olam, or Light of the Universe, is a unique take on the classic Virginia-Perique blend. Or Olam combines red and golden Virginias with spicy Perique and notes of Oriental leaf, as well as a touch of C&D's proprietary Red Virginia Cavendish, expertly blended in an easy-smoking ribbon cut. In 2022, Cornell and Diehl established an exclusive partnership with 31 Farms to provide smokers with access to 100% St. James Perique, now included in every blend that contains the unique varietal.

Normally, I smoke two bowls a day. But, being that this is election day, I figured it was time to crack open my first tin of this VaPer goodness. It's the second one of the Hebraica series that I have tried. Big billows of smoke, smooth & rich fla... Read More

I am honestly a little surprised that this hasn't been reviewed more widely. I thought this was an excellent VA-Per blend. Tin note is lovely, smelling of sweet grass and hay and slightly, musty, reminding me of an old barn. Wonderful sweetness right... Read More

At first impression the tin note was almost kinda sour, but in a good way like...sour leather? Lol i don’t know. At first puff, it was kinda boring like an over the counter tobacco, but it definitely got better and more interesting. I didn’t get much... Read More
Or Olam: Hits The VaPer Lover's Sweet Spot

Product: Cornell & Diehl Light of the Universe: Or Olam 2oz
Deep, dark, rich VaPer taste with thick, chewy smoke, and a wonderful sweet flavor. It looks like it is a completely broken-up crumble cake, and burns well.
Decent, not especially rounded

After smoking this one a few times I added latakia and Virginias to fill it out. It was a good start, but fell short.
