Captures the spirit!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
This stuff is amazing. I smoked it all through the Christmas period, and even shared it with a friend. It's so light and cut so well that you can smoke it all day. It's rummy, smooth, and unpretentious. I wish it would be up for sale all year round a... Read More
Good solid blend. VERY Cornell & Diehl

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
A lot of C&d blends that claim to be aromatics, i don't really feel are so. and this is a pretty good example. This blend to me really has almost no aromatic qualities, HOWEVER, its a fantastic blend.... The tin note is more like a McClellands &q... Read More
Great Christmas Blend!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
I'm surprised this one got so many 1 star reviews. This is a man's man aromatic blend, lightly topped with plenty of tobacco flavor, no goop and perfect moisture level to smoke straight out of the tin. I really enjoyed this stuff and I think Jeremy R... Read More

I bought my first tin just over a year ago and was not overly impressed at first so I let it sit hoping this would improve. after smoking it again after a year to me the blend reminds me a decent cigar. Was really hoping for the delivery that the t... Read More

An aromatic for non aromatic smokers
September 30, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
C&D aromatics, well at least the few I have tried have an interesting way of adding casings and toppings that do not totally overtake the tobacco flavor. This is an interesting one. Just looking at the tobacco's used you know this isn't your comm... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
Yes, the first impression was wow. As a confirmed Virginia smoker who has not found much in aromatics to draw me back, Cornell and Diehl appear to have changed my mind. As there was a Virginia component and being drawn to Christmas in July themes, I ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
Are you sure this is an aromatic blend? I very rarely reach for an aromatic, and I usually regret it when I do, but for some reason I felt compelled to try this one. Don't regret it one bit. I'm half through a tin and this will be the first time I fi... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
I'm not an aromatic smoker for the most part but I find myself enjoying this.blend. The topping is not sticky like many other aros and this really cuts back on the chance of bite, & lets the tobaccos shine. However I would sip this slowly because... Read More

I typically don’t dwell on the tin description, but here, I even watched “The Sauce” video (which was great to see the big bearded and tattooed blender cooking over his stove), and so I had a preconceived expectation which was not borne out in the sm... Read More
A Unique Aromatic Mixture

This blend is delicious. It makes my mouth tingle. And, since tingle rhymes with "jingle." I'm gonna "tingle all the way" into the new year on this sleigh.
Aromatic purist?
September 26, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
Are you an aromatic purist? If so, this blend might not be for you... I mean, with the variety of tobacco that compose this blend, you cannot expect your average burley topped blend. It is extremely more nuanced than that. People who watched the vide... Read More

I will probably finish the tin but will not order again and I am a C&D fan but this is not an aromatic.
Fine mild aromatic

This blend was the first aromatic and first C and D blend that I was blessed to try, Was pleasantly surprised that it retains its English/non aromatic notes and still the light chocolate and Christmas pudding that reminds me of my dear old grandmothe... Read More

This became my favorite aromatic after 1 bowl. Very flavorful but didn't overpower the flavor of the tobacco. Flavors change throughout the bowl as well, a spiced fruit flavor came in and slowly transitioned into what I took to be a plum flavor. Very... Read More

I don't do a whole lot of aromatics, but I do like this. The Dark Fired Kentucky comes through like a champ. Has a great spice to this that makes you want to come back for another bowl. A good subtle smoke and worth a try.
Very pleasant

When I opened the tin the smell asault on me, very good smell and if you give it some time a week or so the flavour of tobacco are more enjoyable. After a week you begin to sense a very locourish flavour maybe is the eggnog, anyway I'm enjoying this ... Read More
Nice flavor, Great room note, but burns a little hot.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
So, I was super excited to see this holiday blend as I expect Christmas blends to have some if not all of the holiday spices, this one does. The flavor is good, but right out of the can it seemed to come a little dry for an aromatic, that fact alone... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
I love the Christmas blends, and try as many different ones as possible. The description of this blend made me excited and this possibly caused some high expectations that were not met and lowered my scoring as such. The tin note was good but underwh... Read More

I have been a pipe smoker for fifty-eight years. I don't consider myself to be a tobacco aficionado, but this golden days tobacco is, by far, the poorest excuse for pipe tobacco I've ever smoked. It was extremely dry right out of the can and smoked h... Read More

Tin note was sweet and so was this tobacco. Waited till Christmas week to open this one up, I found that the taste of marshmallows was from start to finish. Certainly a good holiday smoke
Unimpressed

The description above of ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and chocolate sounds amazing. When I opened and lit this one up it had less flavor than a Marlboro light. I don’t know if I got a bad batch or what but this was BORING. I jarred it to see ... Read More

It’s aroma is similar to “pan de pascua” of Chile.
a mediocre blend
December 16, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
While not terrible I found this to be a bit underwhelming. For starters it was quite dry out of the tin, and my first bowl burned through very quickly. It's gotten a bit better since then, but still not great.
Nah maybe next time

Product: Cornell & Diehl Golden Days of Yore 2oz
This was not as flavorful as I wanted it to be. I want my holiday blends to be an in your face aromatic and this was not it. The flavor was nice, but just too subtle. Good, not great

Out of the tin was dry had to place in a humidor. First bowl was harsh and bitter. It had a sharp bite. Trashed the entire can.

Definitely Spicy, not sure if its the mix, topping or both, but definitely one to sip when smoking .
This is not an aromatic

This is not an aromatic. Don't expect an aromatic from this and you'll probably like it just fine for the combination of tobacco listed. I was expecting something more alone the lines of McClelland Holiday Spirit. But this almost tastes like an o... Read More

Decent smoke that you can enjoy during the holidays. It’s not an over the top aromatic.
