And Burley. I have come to the conclusion that I generally just like the bite of Burley. Sippin it slow or chuggin like a freight train, I love it. When I opened the box I recieved today from smokingpipes, I was immediately greeted with a smell I cou... Read More

What a pleasant surprise this is. I have sampled a few blends with deer tongue and found them "interesting", but not something to write home about. But this is the exception, probably due to its utter simplicity. I see some other reviews t... Read More

Crooner is my absolute favorite pipe tobaccos that I've come across! The tin note on this is extraordinary and is a smell i always thoroughly enjoy every time i crack open the tin and gets only better once it is lit up! It's one of those tobaccos whi... Read More

Crooner isn't for everyone, but if you like burley and want something a bit more interesting, Crooner is it. I'm impressed with the quality, strength, and easy smoking of the cubed burley. As far as the deer tongue, when properly dried, it adds a s... Read More

I love this blend, but since I'm a new pipe smoker, I decided I won't give any 1 stars or 5 stars until my palate develops. This tobacco smells like a camp I use to attend every summer in my youth. That's a strange way to say it smells like beach, wo... Read More

As soon as I open the tin, I am greeted by the aroma of cinnamon and spices. Truly compelling tin note. Stays lit for me well with very few re-lights, and is bursting with flavor. By far, the best room note in my opinion. The nic hit is strong and co... Read More

I just love the spicy aroma of this blend. I really have found that burleys suit me, but this one is special. The taste is mellow yet very flavorful. Mr. Crosby thank you for this blend!

Mild to strong barely character is clear, so not too complex. Deertongue leaves a pleasant taste in the pallet and an aroma that reminds you of an old wooden furnished house. In short, it is a pleasant all day smoking.

I have tried all the C&D deer tongue blends and this is my favorite by far. It smells great (my wife loves it) and it burns clean down to a fine ash. My only complaint is the nicotine strength is to much for me so I have to smoke small bowls an... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Crooner Bulk
First, the tobacco is high quality, high nicotine and a perfect humidity. The chocolate pepper notes of the burley ride shotgun to the Coumarins in the deer tongue. Similar to vanilla but more comparable to sweet grass, Hierochloe odorata, used in P... Read More

"Crooner" is my #1. This will be a delight for any Burley fan. Especially since the cube cut burley comes straight out of the tin/bag at the perfect smoking moisture. It is very easy to keep lit. But the real magic for me, is the Deertongue... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Crooner Bulk
Like Bing Crosby, it's unique but simple. Because deertongue is an herb—not a type of tobacco—I was very interested to smoke this, as no other blends I know of utilize herbs. Tin notes of hay, alfalfa, and plain Burley set it apart from all others. T... Read More

Bing knew what he was doing when he came up with this blend. I tried this about 10 yrs ago. I didn’t like it, as a tobacco snob was probably my reason to reach a snap decision. I’ve included the old classics in my rotation. I love burly as much as La... Read More

Burley by itself is ok, deer tongue by itself is very pungent. However when added together something wonderful and exciting happens. The smell reminds of a dessert I had when I was a small child, and is absolutely amazing. My only problem is I didn't... Read More
Very bold burley with vanilla room note

Product: Cornell & Diehl Crooner Bulk
Kinda harsh by itself but add some unflavored cavendish or a pinch of sweet Virginia and it smooths out the hot burley. Love the Deertongue / Burley aroma and med-high strength. Just needs a filler of mild leaf added IMHO
That deer tongue is too much

A decent cube cut burley blend mild smoking, tasty but...would benefit from more deer tongue. This flavoring agent isn’t apparent to my nose or taste buds...maybe that’s the intent. I was hoping for a more apparent taste or smell. The blend is OK as ... Read More

The deertongue makes this smell like interesting cigarettes. There is a vanilla-like flavor to it, like actual vanilla, not vanilla flavored things. The nic was pretty high and I got a caramel type flavor very occasionally.

This is my first blend I smoked with Deertongue it adds a sweetness to the Burley. The only thing I had to was let the blend air dry other wise I enjoyed the blend.

I'm not very well versed in burley blends as it stands but I'll still give my two cents. The burley is smooth, and has a cool smoke even if you heat it up pretty hot. I would say the nicotine hit is on the milder side of medium - enough to notice it ... Read More

I'd like Crooner to have larger cubes. The current small cubes often get sucked down the air hole. Secondly, a bit more deerstongue would be good, more like it first was.

I smoke two blends almost always. It's Crooner or my own latakia blend, made with C&D blending tobaccos. The majority of the time I smoke Crooner. I don't get any complaints about the aroma, but I would ignore them anyway. The cubes could be a little... Read More

I bought a oz to try and was very happy I did.If your a fan of strong burly then this one is for you. The deertounge added a taste that I can't really put my finger on but it's pleasant.And the nic-hit is very noticeable so sip this one slow.

I received 2 ounces of Crooner with a Savi Bing's Favorite for Christmas. I was impressed by the blend, very unique taste from the deertongue. Kind of a clovery honey-ish note. Definitely going to keep this in my blend rotation.
