Better than Old Joe Krantz

Not heavy on the perique, it displays the nutty properties of the burley leaf better than OJK.

Great Burley blend
November 27, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Haunted Bookshop 2oz
I’m a big fan of burley and this didn’t disappoint. Not a super full flavored blend but definitely enjoyable for burley fans. My first tin came at a perfect moisture content and smokes very easily. Will order much more.
Simply sublime.

An all day smoke for me. A must for the burley lovers out there. In bulk or out of the tin Haunted Bookshop is one of my go to blends.
Pretty good

I've tried this both tinned and bulk. I assumed some quality would be lost in bulk, but I didnt realize there would be such a stark difference. Out of the tin this is a stout burly blend with a decent nicotine hit. Bulk is dry and almost has a dusty ... Read More

One of my favorite blends. The burley tastes excellent and the right proportion of perique makes this tobacco perfect. Do not bite the tongue, room aroma is not annoying. Beautiful blend.
Awesome

All the negatives people say they have about this blend are positive for me.I love it.If you have some and don't want it I have some of that crap full Virginia flake I'll happily trade for it.

Delicious nutty woody burley flavor on a bed of subtle and peppery perique, rounded off with a slightly sweet Virginia. Fantastic. Goes straight into the rotation when it’s burley time. If you’re a burley fan, you can’t go wrong with Haunted Bookshop... Read More

Tangy, tasty, smoky...a well balanced blend of three American classics. Burley for body and strength, Virginia for sweetness, Perique for sharpness. I wasn’t sure I’d like this as I smoked the first bowl...figured I’d try it again. Second bowl was be... Read More

At first I did not like it. But I found myself reaching for it more and more. Now I love it. Nutty and spicy. And yes, it does have one hell of a lot of nicotine. My brain craves it.
Wow!

This is a beautiful tobacco. Sweet and strong. Smoke slow. My cat really likes when I smoke this stuff, I almost can't smoke this in peace because my cat needs me to pet her although I can't refuse when she's being affectionate. Highly recommended.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Haunted Bookshop 2oz
A slightly musty and slightly dark flavour with just a subtle amount of condiment added. At first light it’s mostly musty. The flavor evolves throughout the bowl so that by the end there’s more perique than must. Very enjoyable. I’ll most likely ... Read More

Smoked my first tin while reading the book. A memorable experience, although I enjoyed the tobacco more than the book. Packed tight in a cob works best for me.

Dusty bookshop might be a better name. Always smokes hot & tastes dusty. Like spring cleaning, not enjoyable.

This is my go-to when I want a little extra flavor and kick out of my pipe. I find it has a nice balance of traditional tobacco flavors. It also provides a nice nicotine kick when I want something stronger than the usual fair.

A hair too harsh for me but I guess age helps it. The leaves feel young and I don’t think they’ve had enough time to meld together. It has such a great reputation though that I was expecting too much of it... which is my own fault.

Now that my 32 ounces are gone, I can say I'm a big fan! Nice easy smoke with a great vitamin N kick! The bulk I ordered had some fairly large clumps in it, but otherwise no issues.

Great tobacco. I read a review which said this was Prince Albert with an attitude. I keep Prince Albert in my rotation but Haunted Bookshop is way up the step ladder due to the Perique.

I ate before I sat down to smoke this blend. After a few minutes I was getting dizzy and nauseous. Maybe, this is for those who like a good "nic hit." The flavor is good, but that C&D burley can kick.
It's okay, I guess.
