Uniquely Fruity

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers 2oz
This is a good blend for aromatic lovers who enjoy fruity flavors. Just smoke it slowly and let the magic happen. Don't force it.

I don't like aromatics. Tried many, and didn't like them. But this one is a lovely blend! Tastes natural, has pleasant room note, balanced sweetness, burns well. Delicious! I'm really glad I gave it a try!

This is a very cool and flavorful smoke! Packs well, burns great! The flavor lasts from start to finish, and leaves me with a satisfied feeling.I encourage all to try this tobacco mixture. The old saying holds true "Father Knows Best".
Not Your Average Aromatic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
I bought this out of sheer curiousity. Pomegranate and tobacco? It couldn't be good, but I had to find out. I was wrong. It is good. Not only is it unique, it's actually a little puzzling just how good it is. I don't smoke aromatics all that of... Read More
Love it

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
Founding Fathers is an easy to smoke blend that isn't harsh, just a hint of sweet fruit and pleasant aroma. It doesn't smoke thick or overpowering like many aromatics I've tried, it's much better in my opinion. A new favorite to add to the list.
Sweet!!!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
Very mild and good taste blend. It is sweet but not too sweet, is just perfect. The taste is like a mix of vanilla, honey and damask, very well balanced. It leaves a discrete and sweet after taste. If smoked slowly, it is cool and has no bite.It is a... Read More

This is mild and pleasingly flavor. No bite. Room smoke not strong. Less tongue build-up than some others. Came back to buy quantity...

I love aros, but this tobacco tastes like a cigar. A cigar which was casually discussing fruit around last september.

Excellent aromatic
February 09, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
This is not a heavily flavored aromatic, which I really appreciate. The subtle smell of pomegranate makes this blend very enjoyable, without overpowering the tobaccos. It’s a great change of pace in the rotation. Well worth giving this a try if you’r... Read More

Good aromatic with little bite. Nice smoke that burns well and is very ... berry ... no that should be in uppercase "BERRY" not goopy sweet but a very berry, fruity smoke. Pretty decent all round.
Slow & Steady

I'm still learning to smoke this one, but when I smoke it slow, it's very rewarding. The pomegranate is noticeable. Almost a non-aromatic & I definitely prefer aromatics, but this is good.
Forbidden fruit?
June 24, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
A name invoking American independence is always good for an American style aromatic like this, but having sampled it, all I can think of is the forbidden fruit of the underworld. The “exotic fruit” in question here is the Pomegranate which you can sm... Read More
Dry & Harsh
March 24, 2016
Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
Given its lofty name, I had high expectations for this blend. None were met & it required addition of black cav to finish 2 oz. I was left with the impression that pomegranate is a very unsuitable condiment for pipe tobacco.
Decent aromatic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers 2oz
A decent enough aromatic, although Edward G. Robinson blend hits all the same notes a bit better for me.
Great, Pleasant Aromatic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
I’ve been maturing this for over two years - oh my what a pleasant smoke. The jar aroma is most pleasing - sort of a woodsy chocolate aroma with a sweet fruit over-tone. Packed and lit well in my vintage Calebresi brandy pipe. Flavor remains througho... Read More

I always keep this around. It's very pleasant and easy to smoke. I definitely taste some chocolate and fruit.
Decent, but

Product: Cornell & Diehl Founding Fathers Bulk
This has a nice fruit taste that I enjoy, the tobacco tastes nice, but man is it wet. This doesn't have the strongest flavors, and requires quit a but of drying before, and be sure to smoke it slow.
Well well well

Too mild

Tobacco taste and smell is there. Not really appealing to an aromatic fan,like me.A bit harsh. Full bowl lasted about 45 mins in my Savinelli Hercules 604 EX pipe.It's fast burning. Very mild taste and smell.Tin note is mild. Tastes a bit like van... Read More
