Cornell & Diehl: Pegasus

Product Number: 005-459-0081

C&D's Pegasus is yet another from the master of classic American Burley blends, Bob Runowski. Three Burley tobaccos, two Virginias, and a touch of unsweetened black Cavendish form a classic American blend, hearkening back to the days when Burley was king in American pipe tobacco blends.

Burley Bliss
November 16, 2017
Product: Cornell & Diehl Pegasus Bulk
A quintessential Burley blend. It's simple, nutty, smooth, and satisfying. Leaves a room smelling nice too. Pegasus is like a boutique version of Carter Hall—it's smoother, and way more flavor that doesn't fall flat halfway through the bowl. The Burl... Read More

Great nutty / woody burley flavor backed by virginia sweetness and a smattering of plain black cavendish to smooth it over. A marvelous all natural blend with some power.
Calm taste and smoke

Burley and Black Cavendish constitute the main taste blend. Virginia is mixed as a topping. As written in many reviews, this blend is suitable for all day smoke. Silky and smooth taste. Occasionally there are hints like cocoa and cafe au lait. I reco... Read More

I am a fan of C&D blends, except for their aromatics or for that matter most any aromatic. My favorite C&D blend is Red Odessa but when you need a change of pace, Pegasus Is very good. This is good burley based smoke. It tastes a lot like Big... Read More

I am liking this immensely. Nice and tangy. I've heard it likened to Haunted Bookshop (which I don't love) without the perique. I do like perique, however. At any rate, this is very tasty stuff.

My new all day smoke. Very smooth, rich, creamy, just a bit of a nicotine hit. Pairs well with coffee and tea in the morning, but makes a perfect afternoon smoke as well. Easily my new favorite; I'll be ordering a whole lot more

Mild and silky smooth, walnuts with just a hint of bitter, nicely balanced by he sweetness of the Virginias. I am a Balkan and VaPer guy, but this is a very nice alternative.

This is my personal favorite C&D blend to-date - it’s the pentacle of the art. Stout but cool, bite-free and easy smoking all day long, unrelenting with natural flavors of cocoa, cream, and granola all the way down to the powdery ashes, an almost car... Read More

I was looking for a burley mix to replace Prince Albert, as I have found it too mild as of late. I ordered an ounce of this and smoked through it in just two days. Creamy, nutty, and just a whisper of sweetness. I just ordered a pound. We will se... Read More
Excellent burley flavor

Product: Cornell & Diehl Pegasus 2oz
Pegasus on its own is good. Classic, simple burley flavor with a bit of virginia and cavendish to sweeten and round out the smoke. Decent nic kick, can get a little bitter if you smoke it too fast. But my favorite use for Pegasus is as a blending com... Read More
Sweet and Nutty
December 30, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Pegasus Bulk
Oh my… how do I begin? First, I love a good Virginia-Burley mix; the dry acridity of burley is offset by the sugars of Virginia leaf. Conversely, the burley provides body, mouth feel and that woody, walnut-like tannin that corresponds so well with t... Read More

This is pretty tasty. The burley and Virginia play well together. If you want a mellow, slightly sweet burley blend or you want to try a burley blend for the first time, Pegasus is where it's at.

It's unexpected and heartening when a tobacco lives up to its description and when the hype proves true. This tobacco really is tasty but uncomplicated, which is good in this case. It's everything I wished modern renditions of Prince Albert, Carter H... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Pegasus Bulk
With Pegasus, the Burley is front and center in the familiar Runowski way. Thesere’s a very present sweetness of the Virginias that dance nicely on the stage of the cool round condimental Cavendish. It’s a smooth, relaxing, and satisfying smoke with ... Read More
Best Burley Blend Yet

Product: Cornell & Diehl Pegasus Bulk
Most enjoyable! What interested me was the sweetness of the blend, which makes a nice alternative to my Perique/Burley taste. Easy to light and smoke right to the bottom of the bowl. No bite and 100% good tobacco; no garden mulch to throw away her... Read More

For starters, I have smoked a great deal of Prince Albert. Having rediscovered Carter Hall, I like Carter Hall more than Prince Albert. I love Pegasus. Pegasus is my go-to Burley Blend. If I had to have two tobaccos, I would have Pegasus and Ashton A... Read More

I'm surprised to see all the love here for this old codger style blend. That's pretty cool. It's a pleasing burley forward blend, slightly sweet, nutty, bready, with mild espresso notes. What I really like about Pegasus is the balance in the blend. T... Read More

Hands down, one of the best blends out there. A little age on this elevates it to the magical. Not overly complex, but one of the most satisfying and enjoyable smokes I have had.

After smoking this in several different pipes, I've finally found a winning combination. Smoked out of a larger bent billiard, this blend smokes cool and dry. Slowing your cadence down to a snail's pace brings out a slight sweetness that I wasn't get... Read More

I've smoked just about every Burley, and this is one of the very best. The unsweetened black cavendish takes this to the next level. Smooth Burley body with a complimentary sweetness from the cavendish. It's right up there with Uhle 00 and the HU and... Read More

This is a pleasant blend to smoke. To me it tastes a lot like a cigarette, but not quite exactly like it. Being a 25+ year/pack-a-day+ smoker making the switch, I find this blend satisfying. It really hits the spot when I get that craving for a cigar... Read More

Pegasus has a faint room note. It’s dry and burns well, quickly to ash, with no dottle. However, there’s not a lot of flavor to the blend, though the Virginia is somewhat evident. The black cavendish is very much in background and really has nothing ... Read More

I like all the components CD uses for their blends, so you gotta be clumsy not to get it right, and they are master blenders at CD. What sets this blend apart is the addition of unsweetened back cavendish. If you like their burley blends, you will pr... Read More

dark, earthy and that's just about it, lacks complexity and depth, the nuttiness and sweetness are too mild for my taste. it's not a bad smoke, it's just not that good either.
