Cornell & Diehl - From Beyond 2oz
It came From Beyond!!
The moment I popped my "right now" tin, I was blown away. The tin note was stupendous. It was sweet, and savory, and smokey, and it was more. It was complex to the point that I can pick up hints of many things, but can't nail down any of them. It smells like it is already aged, and from the description, I think that was kind of the point. Upon lighting up, it got almost a citrus tang in the open, very bright and tasty. as the bowl has gone down, the flavors are very smooth and rounded, and very well blended. I am so glad I got 8 tins, wish I had gotten more. I look forward to seeing what some cellar time does to this. Well done C&D!!
Cornell & Diehl - Epiphany 8oz
This has been a staple in my rotation for over a year. Its a very good, smooth blend. I only had trouble recently when an 8oz can came to me extremely dry. Like bone dry. It is almost unsmokable. I have had to try to rehydrate it, which does nothing for the taste. On the whole, I really like this blend, but if it comes like that again, I may have to go away from it for a while. Hoping it was a one time thing. Otherwise, give it a try, because when it is right, it is vey good.
Cornell & Diehl - Corn Cob Pipe and A Button Nose 2oz
Christmas in a pipe.
I tried this on a friends recommendation and I'm so glad I did. It is Christmas in a pipe. It is warm and tasty, smokes very well for how moist it can be, with not a lot of goop. Be moderate in your cadence and you will love this. It will bite you if you over cook it or pull on it like your in a hurry. Take your time and enjoy this one.
Cornell & Diehl - Gentleman Caller 2oz
Love at first smell.
This is my everyday smoke. It is the one blend that I get compliments on every single time I smoke it around others. The room note is amazing, and reminds me of baking cookies or brownies or something like that. It is really homey and warm, and very comforting. It smokes great all the way through the bowl and keeps me coming back for more. Can't recommend enough.
Cult - Militia 50g
Fell in love with this one when I opened it. The tin note was amazing. After 2 bowl fulls, the seduction was complete. This is my go to for cult. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of its limited availability. I had to wait almost a year between orders. Once it was back in I scooped up 6 tins. If it becomes more readily available, I will update to a full 5 stars. Great smoke, smooth and tasty, great room note. Highly recommend.
