Cornell & Diehl - Pegasus 2oz
Is my cob ghosting me or is Pegasus really this good! Smooth and silky with small sips and big flavor. A touch of sweetness with woody notes and hints of cocoa and vanilla just enough to question if you just tasted a bit of cocoa and vanilla. Pegasus is what makes me want to dive into the mysteries of the Burley world.

Wow, great smoke. A very familiar smell to it. It was very warm & inviting like rustic comfort with a charred spice that reminded me of Christmas. Kinda like a weak scent of church incense, but just a little & a woody burley taste with light cherry & chocolate. I loved that the tobacco was coming through and the topping was just right. Definitely got topping, but I also thought maybe there was a casing as well on the burley that just made it pop or maybe it was the Black Cavendish bringing everything to the front.

Finally got around to buying a tin of this highly spoken about flake and God Damn did it hit every note. Only had one bowl and that's really all it takes when a great tobacco comes into your mix.
Cornell & Diehl - We Three Kings 2oz
This was soooooooooo good!! Although I was kinda disappointed. I wasn't getting any of the cinnamon or nutmeg that I heard so much about. Lot of emotions going on searching for a taste of whats permeating in my kitchen during the holidays. I was getting some chocolatyness in the beginning and definitely some spices from the Orientals or Perique and the Virginia's always pleasant. It's cold where I am so I'm wondering if I'm getting the whole spectrum. I'm smoking a new Cob so that might have some negatives as well. Although things got really interesting towards the end. Not minty, but cool. A cool refreshing spice I'm thinking coming off the Orientals had a well rounded comfort about it. Nice and relaxing I stopped thinking about the complexities and simply started enjoying a great smoke. Room note was nice, but no cookies in the kitchen. Mustache note very pleasant. Had me wanting more as I thought of Christmas. The taste, was just very satisfying 🤙
