Cornell & Diehl - Carolina Red Flake with Perique 2oz
Sweet Caroline
For the record; I am a firm and dedicated smoker of full-bodied English/Balkan blends that are rich with delicious smoky Latakia. I usually find Virginia blends lacking in flavor and shun aromatics altogether. However, one bowl of Carolina Red Flake with Perique was enough to convince me that Virginia blends can be quite tasty. too bad it was a Small Batch project instead of a regular line. It would definitely be a staple in my humidor.

Easy Money
The cigar leaf added to this otherwise light bodied English blend combines to to present a unique and rather pleasing taste that burns evenly and cool.

Cornell & Diehl - Tuskegee Airman 2oz
A Fitting Tribute
Bold,dark and smokey in flavor; this is a fitting tribute to those brave black fighter pilots in their p51 Mustangs over the skies of Europe, overcoming NAZI fighters and racial predjudice within USAAF to establish one of the best combat records of WW2.. Thanks to each one for their service and thanks to C&D for another great smoke.

Cornell & Diehl - Orient Express 2oz
Take A Ride
Simply stated; this is the best Balkan blend I have smoked since Balkan Sobranie 759 in the black and gold tin ceased being available.

Cornell & Diehl - From Beyond 2oz
From Beyond My Wildest Dreams
What every smoker of English blends dreams of; a rich, bold,, full bodied Latakia smoke that is packed with flavor,yet cool on the tongue. The only regret I have is I only bought 10 tins instead of the 15 tin allotment I could have purchased.

Sillem's - Black 100g
Something Different
As a rule, I avoid flavored aromatics like the plague. HoweverI was intrigued by the noyion of an English aromatic so I gave it a whirl. While this blend will never become a staple of my personal tobacco stockpile, I did find the blend to be a somewhat pleasant diversion from my preferred non-flavored Virginias and English blends. Could use more Latakia.

Sillem's - Commodore Flake 50g
Prepare your fleet!
Pick your favorite pipe load up and set sail for full English blend satisfaction! Long burning, medium-full body and smooth taste. A very satisfying smoke.

Sillem's - European Blend: London 50g
True English Smoke
A true full-bodied English blend with a generous portion of Latakia. Full on taste, yet easy on the tongue.

G. L. Pease - Quiet Nights 2oz
Shhh! Be vewy vewy quiet. I'm smoking my pipe.
This is the perfect end of the day smoke. Rich notes of smoky Latakia, it is well balanced with spice notes from the oriental leaf and the dried fruit notes of Perique, it all comes together with sweet Golden Virginia. Quiet Nights is full of flavor without overwhelming the senses. So; fix your favorite drink, pick up a good book, grab your favorite pipe and fill it with a bowl of Quiet Nights and enjoy a leisurely evening. I will.

Cornell & Diehl - Mountain Camp
A Retreat From The Mundane
This is a solid full bodied English blend that borders on the Balkan side. Mountain Camp possesses everything I desire in a tobacco blend; a generous portion of rich, dark, smoky Latakia, rich spicy Oriental leaf, the pungent muskiness ness of perique the coolness of Burley and the sweetness of fine Virginias. It is the perfect blend to share in reflective solitude before a fire with some of my special friends, such as Dunhill,Castell0, Ashton, Savinelli and Cavicchi. I heartily recommend this blend to any devotee of English blends wishing to explore the depth of their pipe smoking passion!

Captain Earle's - Nightwatch 2oz
Be On Guard
This is a full bodied , yet smooth smoke. It burns slow and and even with heavy musky and earthy notes. A top 10 favorite of mine!

Captain Earle's - Ten Russians 2oz
The only thing better than a bowl of Ten Russians is a bowl of Ten Russians and a bottle of good Russian Vodka! Rich, dark and earthy, it is one of my favorites!

Captain Earle's - Reflections 2oz
Contemplative Repose
This is a fantastic English blend. Cool and slowburning, yet bursting with smoky flavor, Reflections is definitely in my top 10 favorite blends. A perfect companion to a good book and a stout drink or just a trusted friend to share your thoughts with.

Cornell & Diehl - Constellation
Enjoyment Under the Stars
This is a full bodied English blend that reminds me somewhat of Balkan Sobranie 759. It is a slow, even burning bkend that is easy on the palatte while still providing the rich, dark muskyness of a very generous portion of Latakia. A great companion with a book or a stroll under a starry night sky.

Cornell & Diehl - Star of the East
Follow the Star
A smooth, even burning Balkan style blend that is medium/full in strength with a boldly musky Latakia flavor. A great smoke for the evening.

Cornell & Diehl - Habana Daydream
Decisions, Decisions!
Sometimes I find myself caught between smoking a fine cigar or a good bowl of tobacco in a favorite pipe. Habana Daydream is mysolution. Delicious cigar leaf generously blended into a traditional English satisfies ny tastes buds to a tee!

Cornell & Diehl - Engine #99
A Traditional Smoke
A good solid medium/full bodied English blend with musky, earthy overtones of Latakia. A good smoke!

Balkan Sasieni - Balkan Sasieni 50g
Smoking Pleasure
For those that rememember the Sobranie tobaccos, Balkan Sasieni falls midway between the Sobranie Smoking Mixture and Balkan Sobranie 759. It is a good medium to full bodied blend with a generous, but not heavy, helping of Latakia. Smokes very well.

Cornell & Diehl - Hearthside 2oz
A Good Book, A Good Pipe and A Great Tobacco
Normally, I am a strict devotee of English Blends, especially those heavy with Latakia. I NEVER smoke aromatics/flavored tobaccos and Virginia blends failed to satisfy my tastes.... Until now! Hearyhside is a well balanced, easy on the tongue with just enough perigue to kick the taste up a notch. It is a great all day smoke. Believe me; if this blend can entice me to set aside my Latakia, it has to be great!!

Cornell & Diehl - Afternoon Delight 8oz
Grab your pipe and have a little Afternoon Delight
Apleasant well balanced blend, typical of C&D tobaccos, it is a mild to medium bodied smoke which possesses just the right amount of earthy Latakia to give good flavor without clearing the room.

Cornell & Diehl - Pirate Kake 8oz
Shivers me timbers
Just the way I like it! Deep dark, heavy, full bodied, musky, smoky and earthy are just a few of the terms that describe this C&D blend. It is a perfect smoke to end the day's demands or to stir up a boring afternoon. Due to the descriptors I used, it is a smoke best enjoyed outdoors or in the privacy of your smoking room. This is one of my favorite blends, but it is not for a beginner or for one who is a novice smoker of English tobacco blends.
