Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
A very good complex blend. Tin note is leather, dark chocolate, and fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity and becomes spicy in the last half of the bowl. A very good blend. I love the crumble cake form. Only gave it 4 stars because mine is only 3 years ol... Read More
Good now, but needs aging

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
I read that this blend is 35% perique, so I expected this to be a similar experience to biting into a habañero...but, this is a surprisingly gentle blend. To be sure, it IS spicy, but I actually find St James Flake and Bayou Morning Flake much spicie... Read More
Age for Balance

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
This blend is recommended for a 10-15 year aging. However, the age of my sample is only 1 year, so I expect balance will improve with time and this may become a 5-star blend when properly aged. Medium-light color, in a cleanly-cut cake, with a small... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
I've tried around 75 blends of which most are Virginia or vaper. This one replaced Elizabethan and Kajun kake. Perique is not 25% it is actually a good smoke. Very earth, tangy, slightly sweet. Ages very well. Some tins you can wring water out of the... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
I thought the flavours of the tobacco were fantastic. The tin note smells very fruity but also has a very strong acidic/fermentation note. I actually liked it to be honest. I know it's meant to be cellared it but I cracked a year old tin and boy wa... Read More
C'est Bon!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
Although it's not made with the 'real' St. James Parish Perique, this cake is a treat for fans of the stout and smelly condiment tobacco. A healthy amount of Perique combines with Virginias to make a wonderful tin note and a cohesive flavor that's sp... Read More

I am a huge fan of Bayou Morning, and this tobacco was very similar, but with a more balanced flavor. Also the crumble cake format is always a pleasure.

If You're Patient, Then Maybe

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
This line is supposedly designed for cellaring, and the side of the tin gives the 'estimated peak' of this tobacco as 10-15 years. I thought I'd try it now, since I love Perique and have been known to smoke it straight. Right now, this stuff is incre... Read More
