Cornell & Diehl - Derringer 2oz
Sweet and full
Back when they were easier to find I smoked a lot of Lakeland Virginia flakes from Samuel Gawith and Gawith & Hoggarth. This is a much mellower, much sweeter Virginia. There's enough nicotine so that I can slow down and sip it, without rapid puffing that overheats and sours the smoke. I love the cut. There is a sweet creaminess with faint hints of tart fruit. Rich flavor but not heavy on the pallette. If you smoke just fast enough to keep the pipe lit, and sip cool water, you will experience Virginia tobacco at its finest. I like this stuff in a small Peterson system pipe while I am reading outside. It's a refreshing beautiful tobacco perfect for warm weather outside.
