Quite a bit of sweetness, some dried brown grass earthiness, with growing oriental zing, all melded over with mild Latakia, and hints of florals in the afterglow.

[Tin/bag - Little bit of new tire smell in the Latakia department. Some faintly sweet old shoe leather. Fine small ribbon cut and a good portion of dust in my bag as well. On the dry side but still ready to go.] Tiny peppery spice tingle in the... Read More

Long before I tried the much renowned Star of the East Flake, I was a fan of the Gold. But, they are quite different from one another to me. The Flake is obviously rich in Latakia, but while Gold has a fair amount, it is more of an oriental mixture. ... Read More
My new daily smoke

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold Bulk
Bag note is straight leather and tobacco. This blend is better than any tinned tobacco I have tried. Its sweet earthy produces lots of cool dry smoke. Only problem is it's out of stock and I only bought 2 oz to sample. By far the best smoke I've ru... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold 2oz
This is a great English that makes the spicy orientals the star of the show. I don't really find it sweet so I disagree with that part of the description. Not much latakia but enough to detect it. Can be a little nippy if rushed but it's a pretty tam... Read More

A nice mixture of leaf that gets better the deeper it gets in the bowl. Burns well, has flavor. Not one that's high in my rotation. I'll let this one sit in the cellar for a year and retry then

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold 2oz
Most C&D blends taste green or edgy to me, and this is no exception. I smoke it infrequently when I want some spice, and it always delivers. The mild sweetness comes and goes from the red Virginia, but peaks mid-bowl and then hangs out in the backgro... Read More

Not a top ten English for me, but it is typical. All the right stuff, and good portions for a good English mix. Great buy for the price!
I like it!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold 8oz
This is one of my favorite tobaccos. It starts out being easy to light and keep lit, it has a pleasant room note and it don't bite. Much Smoke it quick and it will. Slow and enjoy, no bite at all. Try some, you won't regret it.

Harmonious blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold Bulk
I love this blend. The presence of Latakia is a condiment that makes smoke smoother while maintaining balance. Oriental, Virginia is responsible for the body of the blend so it is filled with natural sweetness and various hints. A nice blend of pleas... Read More
Balanced smoke

Sweet, mild, fragrant smoke with VAs being the main taste component. Good for relaxing on porch but lacks a punch if you are a Latakia maniac.
Nice Oriental Interpretation of a classic

Product: Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Gold Bulk
The new Star of the East Gold is a very interesting interpretation of an old classic. But, indeed, it is a completely differnet blend. When smoking, not the Latakia is the most prominent note, the Orientals playing clearly the main role. Latakia give... Read More
