Amidst the old tomes in a remote corner of the library, you discover an obscure reference to an occult recipe: a pinch of granulated Perique over a bed of Katerini and Virginia, finished with a dash of sweet black Cavendish to cure the Madness.
An interesting and slightly curious blend that highlights the exotic personality of the Katerini varietal. This squarely targets those who favor Turkish/Virginia blends that place a greater emphasis on the Turkish element. There’s only a dash or so ...

Like Jarrod P. I'm a longtime fan of Lovecraft, so I could not resist C&D's The Old Ones series.
Turkish and Perique blends are my favorites. This blend is certainly smooth, bright, and well-balanced, but I wish the Katerini were more pronounced. ... Read Moreq.v. McClelland's Katerini Classic. The leaf is definitely here, but somewhat homogenized. As it is, this is a pleasant smoke one can enjoy all day long and its room note won't have others heading for the door. Still it's not enough for me to stock up on this. Read Less
H.P. Lovecraft is a cult favorite author of mine, which immediately drew me to several C&D blends I noticed while browsing their website. This has been my favorite of those blends so far. It's a Turkish centered blend like I've never experienced,... Read More balance and thorough, never lacking in depth, strength or flavor.

The key quantity is just enough to round sharp edges without detracting from flavor. And they've done it perfectly here. Give this stuff a try ASAP. Read Less
Last year I started smoking 'Innsmouth' in a darkly misshapen pipe at the Halloween season. But this year I became involved in the celebration of Lovecraft's Birthday in August, so I smoked Innsmouth and then moved on to Miskatonic Mixture, I found...

There is a feeling of something strange just out of sight as the flavor of the smoke makes dark suggestions on the palate. I really like them both tremendously and one could be forgiven for giving in to the desire to go ever deeper into darkness with these tobaccos were there not such a wide range to continue to sample in the daylight. Both are perfect for those nights when a gibbous moon hangs in the sky. Read Less
I bought the whole range of Lovecraft themed tobaccos. I love "Awakened Elder" this one reminds me of University Flake. It burns really well, flavorful and is just plain good. It has a very light sweetness and can be an all day smoke. I am ... Read Moreglad I bought 2 tins as this will be a regular in my rotation, along with "Awakened Elder" Read Less
