Billy Budd is a regular in my lineup, and now there is another great variation. Has already found a home with me.

Well shoot, one always hates to be negative... I will start with a positive. I am a fan of Habana Daydream and Billy Budd so had to try it. BBB. Honestly though this first tin...Meh... didn't do anything for me. This was too similar to actually smok... Read More

A VaPer with pizzazz!

If you love VaPers and Virginia/Burley blends you'll find this to be right in your wheelhouse. The pinch of cigar leaf combines beautifully with the base ingredients to give the blend a somewhat oriental character, which I find delightful.
Very good

Surprising tobacco, without realising there is cigar leaf in the mix I got the impression of a mild "dry sweet" virginia with a little burley. Once I read there was some cigar leaf in there, I can taste it now. This is a really decent tobac... Read More
The perfect social blend
July 18, 2020
Product: Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde Bulk
This blend is beautifully balanced, well behaved, and full of flavor. A perfect daily go to or social tobacco. It is very forgiving allowing you to focus more on your conversation and less on your cadence. For a non-aromatic it gives off a very pleas... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde Bulk
For the last 15 years or so, it seemed Old Joe Krantz was the reigning, defending, undisputed big cat daddy of my rotation. I've tried many very good tobaccos over the years, none of which seemed to compare. Then along comes Billy Budd Blonde. They ... Read More

I am Japanese. Pipe is still a beginner. I tried about 20 types. This is number one. Because the sweetness and sourness match. You look amazing. I will buy it again. I want to add 5 stars, but for some reason I can't.
Tangy sweet Virginia

Product: Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde Bulk
Pleasantly surprised by this blend. A nice natural sweet tang mixed with hits of light pepper and med nic hit. I really like it a lot. The broken flake is aesthetically pleasing and hay-fresh cut field room note. Aftertaste of pure Virginia with a li... Read More
Excelent!

It has a very pleasant natural jam. But it must be smoked slowly and in the right pipes. I just use straight pipe for him. Otherwise you will have a banal tobacco and you will wonder why the hell has such good reviews.
It's nothing like the original Billy Budd.

I bought this blend, thinking it is a toned down version of the Original Billy Budd. I was wrong. It lacks taste and complexity. Faint cigar leaf is there but does not give me the satisfaction of the original Billy Budd.
Mild all day cigar blend

Tired of latakia blends? This a mid-med that is subtle. If your not paying attention this smokes fairly easy and with a a subtle flavor. If you pay attention you get to notice a few things. If their is black cav in this its used in the best of ways. ... Read More

Another favorite of mine. The only thing this has in common with the original Billy Budd is the inclusion of cigar leaf. The blends could not be more different. I like both, but I'll smoke this one all year round. The fact that it's available in bulk... Read More

I like to smoke cigars and this tobacco, despite not being aromatic, I found it a good tobacco, its incredible cut. I was pleasantly surprised.
Almost perfect

One of the best blends after aging for a bit. The cigar leaf is a tad overbearing initially, but once it settles in, it's a fine smoke indeed.
A lot going on here

For my taste, the cigar leaf is to the fore and I find no sweetness. It is a great smoke with a big nic hit.
This..Is..Beautiful !

Very soft smoke, spicy, gentle and satisfying. I will order more definitely.

Not to be bias i am going to declare that i do not fancy latakia all the time. Now i loved the old one but the latakia always stopped me from reaching out to it. That being out of the way this one taste just as smooth and rich, burns well and have so... Read More

Nice blend if you like a little cigar ( I smoked cigars for years and I am coming back to my pipes ) but I have ghosted a great pipe that I can't smoke anything on now untill I fix it or just give it up to this blend
Not enough VA, to much Per
February 03, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde Bulk
I'm not a VA/Per fan because the Perique just doesn't agree with me. But I do appreciate a good blend of VA burley. There is nothing special about this blend. The cigar leaf is delightful but the rest of the ingredients just lay there.
Excellent Virginia
