A New Fav
July 18, 2017
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
My Favorite so far!

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

Age it
May 08, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
More than the peppery spice common in blends with lower amounts of perique, in this blend, the high amount of the component produces notes of fig and other dark fruits, like plum. Age it for at least a year. If you are a devout vaper smoker, you will... Read More
This is more like it
December 23, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 8oz
So, my tastes are as follows: 90% English, 5% VaPer, 5% "others". One the occasion that I get a hankering for a VaPer, THIS is the type of blend I want. Not one of those blends that make you wonder if there's actually any Perique in it, but... 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
Love It

Product: Cornell & Diehl Chenet's Cake 2oz
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
May 23, 2015
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
