Cornell & Diehl: Palmetto Balkan 8oz Pipe Tobacco
Product Number: 003-016-0353
A tribute to the Oriental-forward blends of yesteryear, Cornell & Diehl's latest Small Batch release, Palmetto Balkan, delivers a uniquely Carolina-inspired interpretation of the celebrated Balkan mixtures that have captivated so many pipe smokers over the years.
The palmetto is the state tree of South Carolina, and Palmetto Balkan showcases the Lowcountry blending house's prowess. Spearheaded by a foundation of tangy, mature, sun-cured 2018 Basma and 2019 Izmir Orientals with naturally sweet Carolina Red Virginias and a proprietary method for processing Latakia, Palmetto Balkan produces a mellow, balanced smoking experience rich with notes of stone fruits, subtle wood smoke, and a slightly dry finish that calls to mind the signature character of long-lost Syrian leaf. The inventive treatment of the mixture's Latakia component is of particular interest — mellowing the modern Latakia's often dominating campfire note and creating a harmonious equilibrium of flavors.
The first 8oz pipe tobacco in the Small Batch portfolio, Palmetto Balkan is a stunning and inviting mixture — unique and complex enough for connoisseurs of the Balkan family and approachable enough for enthusiasts new to the genre.
