Cornell & Diehl - Black Frigate 8oz
Black Frigate delivers all it promises, and, more!
Cornell & Diehl - Sansepolcro 2oz
Thank you Jeremy C&D! Since leaving GH after the prolonged drought, I immersed myself in C&D with Kelly's Coin, Bow-Legged Bear and Black Frigate fast becoming my favorites. Those aside, exploring different tobaccos with C&D has been an extraordinary journey, Sansepolcro has proven itself simply wonderful!
Cornell & Diehl - Bow-Legged Bear 8oz
I pipe this in my Erik Nording Rusticated Bent Volcano, simply put, it is one of the most delicious-enjoyable baccys ever to cross my palate!
Cornell & Diehl - Kelly's Coin 2oz
Another C&D Underrated
Kelly's Coin is another one of the infamous underrated, if not misunderstood, C&D Baccy's! Smoked, rather sipped, in a Nording Natural Signature Bent Chimney, 1 light, fine ash to the bottom. Wonderful nutty-earthy flavour with a sweet finish! Will be buying this by ten count stacks going forward! Well Done C&D, Well Done!!!!!!!
Cornell & Diehl - Innsmouth 2oz
Take it easy to unravel it
The 2nd as I work my way thru the series. The secret to unlocking all the flavours of this one is to go nice and easy. The flavours are hidden and not handed out so readily however, if you go easy, there is plenty to love about this blend.
Cornell & Diehl - Awakened Elder 2oz
Comes Fully Awake in The Clay!
Absolutely a wonderful tasty blend and in my German Clay...The Wonders!
Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East
Lives up to its reputation, would put it up against any other similar blends for The Win! Well-Done C&D!
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Flake Aromatic
A Favorite When
A favorite when I have nothing in particular to do or somewhere to be, just a pure ahhh experience
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Whisky Twist
Exceptional Year-Round Enjoyment. Excellent under the stars at night Spring, Summer, Fall or by alongside the fireplace on Winter Nights!
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Grasmere Flake
Most delightful Mistress of mine, Spring Mistress with fragrant Rose Petals-Geranium sublime, better yet, Secrets of The Divine!
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Brown Irish X
Incense of The Gods
Absolutely my All-Time favorite! Easily and pleasantly enjoyed anytime of day or night. When I place in long-term storage I coil it in tall mason jars leaving a center hole that I pack tight with Gawith Hoggarth Latakia to fill in the large airspace and gently infuse the incensesque smokiness from the latakia overtime. When ready to use cut my coins and enjoy straight up or with a pinch of the Latakia included. I love straight Virginia's, not much for the burley or perique. Tradition and Purity never tasted, smelled or smoked so good!

5 Facts about Gawith, Hoggarth and Co.
- ► GH Brown Irish X Unsliced and GH Latakia are my absolute favorites (Straight VA and VA-Lat -my blend-).I see that many who purchase GHBIXU jar it in larger mason jars, leaving the center hole of the coil empty, I do not.My preferred cellaring method (coiled within multiple 4oz mason jars with GHLatakia filling the center hole and a layer on top (both compressed).This makes for wonderful marrying of flavours in the aging process and ease of access to just the right mixture and if anything adverse-unwelcome should occur all is not lost in one fell swoop.For clarity, I do enjoy BIXU by itself just as well :-)
