Cornell & Diehl - Sun Bear Tupelo 2oz
Another Homerun for Jeremy Reeves
I just received my order today, and I am thoroughly enjoying my first bowl. Definitely better than the Mountain Flower. Possibly better than the original. I also really liked the Black Locust. But way to go Jeremy!
Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust - StillWell Star Aromatic No. 1
Pleasant Enjoyable Smoke
This cigar exceeded expectations. First off, imagine a cigar with a pleasant room note. The longer I smoked it, the more I would pause, look at it and say, "This is a really good cigar." It was smooth, not heavy. I can hardly wait for them to get in stock again.
Cornell & Diehl - Sun Bear Black Locust 2oz
Sun Bear is my favorite tobacco. Therefore I will have to confess to having quite a bit of bias in my review. The tin note on Sun Bear has been one of my favorites. I really have a hard time stopping myself from just enjoying a deep breath from time to time. So I popped open a tin of last years Sun Bear to compare to the Black Locust. The original Sun Bear tin note seems to have a bit more citrus fruit aroma and the honey is quite prominently there. With the Black Locust the citrus and honey are a bit more subdued. It reminds me of honey in tea. In a side by side smoke comparison I find the Black Locust because the honey is a little more subtle lets another component come forward, I'm thinking it might be the elder flower. Of course there is a bit of age on the tin from last year. Definitely enjoying this. Thank you Jeremy Reeves.

The first run of this is what brought about my appreciation for Virginia's. The tin note, I can't recall how many times I just cracked open the tin just to smell it. This is one of my desert island blends.
