Cornell & Diehl - Bayou Morning Flake 8oz
And after the hammer the nail is set. The tin note of dark bread and plums promises a satisfying smoke. I like a good nic kick and this blend delivers from the get go. If fact, I'm emboldened by that fact and will usually pace myself bullishly through any bowl. With this one, I tend to be a bit cautious because it has snuck up behide me and smacked me upside the head. I usually set the pipe down halfway through and let the warmth envelop me. It offers a rich and peppery smoke that, to me, is perfectly balanced. There are very few blends that I buy larger quantities of, but a few 8 oz tins of this is a perfectly reasonable commitment. Blast off!
