Cornell & Diehl - Corn Cob Pipe and A Button Nose Ready Rubbed 2oz
A Gift Not Worth Giving
While I'm not a regular aromatic smoker, I appreciate one every once in a while. I was hopeful for Corn Cob Pipe (and a Button Nose) because I've enjoyed C&D's prior holiday aromatics. The tin note is quite good, but it falls flat once you light your bowl. The tobacco produces quite a bit of smoke but little flavor. I've smoked about half a tin and keep hoping that I just haven't appreciated what it has to offer yet. I fear I may be kept waiting. Plenty of other tobaccos to smoke.
Cornell & Diehl - Old Joe Krantz 2oz
A must try
When I told my local tobacconist I was looking to get back into the pipe smoking hobby, he recommended Old Joe Krantz. It was a game changer. A great all-day smoke that goes just as well with your morning coffee as it does with your evening stroll around the block. The burly and Virginia are well balanced, and the perique adds a nice spice to keep things interesting.
Cornell & Diehl - Consolation 2oz
A real sleeper
I couldn't make up my mind about this blend until I was about halfway through the tin. I found myself coming back to it time after time. A great, well-balanced American English blend.
