Very underrated
November 15, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
Fantastic virginia blend. Should be talked about more often. Especially since it is available in bulk. Can't wait to try this after it has some age on it. This is a perfect mix of bright and red Virginia's. Plenty of grass and hay and just a touch of... Read More
Suprised I never heard of this
September 13, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
After my first smoke I knew this was going to be a great every day smoke. The sweetness from the toasty red and bright virginias is very pleasant yet not overpowering. There is a bit more complexity there than most straight VA blends. I'm surprised I... Read More
Delicious and Very Little Bite for a Straight Va
February 19, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
I really enjoy this blend. It's sweet and a little nutty, very smooth with a creamy smoke. It's very flavorful, and for a straight Virginia blend, it has very little bite. This is my new favorite blend.
No Surprises, Good For Change of Pace

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
Soon as I opened the bag I knew what I was getting. The fresh mowed hay aroma proved true to the taste. Sharp opening taste (straw) and even smooth burning makes for a very pleasant change from other blends. Only downside, for me, was the after ta... Read More
A Sleeper Hit!!!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
Yorktown didn’t exactly wow me, as a first impression. I’d been smoking Virginias that were sweeter. I’d been smoking Virginias that were richer and zestier. But it took me a little time to recognize that Yorktown kind of puts all that together in ... Read More

Great flavor. Probably the best pure Virginia I’ve smoked. I love it. Has great smoking qualities. Smoked slower and cooler than you’d expect. And the fragrance is wonderful. A whiff of bread and redolent of fermenting hay warming the barn in winter ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown 2oz
No question, this is a 5 star straight virginia blend. Delicious in a Cob or briar. I find it complex and very refreshing in this genre. Even in a rather dry state, it smokes very well. Based on the uniform blond crimp cut, I was expecting a young gr... Read More
Greatly underrated and a worthy stand alone
April 09, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
One of the breadiest Virginas I have smoked. There certainly is an evident citrus character from the brights and some dark fruity from the reds, but sweet baked bread is on the forefront. There is a bit of spiciness as well. I believe the stoved virg... Read More
Full VA Flavor: Sweet, Hay, Citrusy Tanginess

Mouthfeel is smooth, silky and quite comfortable. This possess all the nuance of both VA Bright leaf and Red VA combined, though in a deeper and more complex profile; the sweetness of the Brights are there though more caramelized and bready - akin to... Read More
Simple But Good
May 29, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown 2oz
A very bright Virginian blend that smokes well on its own, or when cut with others, for better roundness and warmth. Also, I wish it came in flake form.
More Bright than Red

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
the grassiness of Bight Virginia dominates the Red. Not bad but age would improve this blend.

Under-rated!

Really surprised this does not get more love - a VA lovers dream. Not overly complex, but you get the best of both the bright and red virginias all in one
An excellent Virginia Blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown 2oz
I purchased this on a whim, experimenting with tobacco likes and dislikes. Four or five bowls through this 2 oz tin and I know I’ll be ordering a pound or more bulk, some to age and some to smoke right away. A good smoke with no tongue bite, the bowl... Read More

If this were called “Albemarle” or “Chesapeake,” everyone would smoke it and love it. Cursed to the end of a long list by virtue of its name, I think it may be a secret for those who scroll and scroll to the end. I’m happy I found it. It smokes wonde... Read More

纯V烟草还是更适合替烟,跟德林格有相似,但尼古丁含量确实要强一点。
Quite enjoyable

Very pleasant, no nonsense, straight up Virginia awesomeness. Nice and sweet, Hay is heavily present on the retrohale, and a lingering hint of citrus on the tongue. Well done C&D, well done indeed.

A pure Virginia thAt burns evenly and is full of flavor. Light yet filling if you will. Definitely a reorder, even though I live in Asia.

Love this blend. The other reviews that say it’s underrated is spot-on. Good basic virginia...no thrills but nice and grassy and smooth. Surprising amount of smoke. If you’re a VA lover, it’s worth trying and a good intro to VAs as well.
Pure virginia greatness

Simply an awesome pure Virginia blend its sweet with a bit of spice but be careful to not overheat it it will start to taste funky and will make your pipe gurgle take your time sip on this one and you'll be rewarded with a great smoking experience
Another great straight Virginia

Product: Cornell & Diehl Yorktown Bulk
Straight Virginia lovers already know what they are going to get here. Earthy, citrusy, and sweet, this is a real pleasure to smoke. More complex than something like Derringer.

Great blend extremely underrated. For the purist who loves a good Virginia sweet grassy light. All day smoke. Just don’t go crazy on the puffing cause she bites.

This smells like my grandads hay loft, a really nice friendly smell from decades past. A lovely orange and brown ribbon that seems dry in the tin but smokes beautifully. It’s sweet, mild, tasty and is easy to smoke as it stays lit with little effort.... Read More

I hit this blend hard for a few days and then slowed down on it a bit. There is a strange sourness I detect. It's not a sour pipe taste, I've tried it in many different pipes. It's the taste of sour candy, of over acidity. It's not unpleasent, but it... Read More
