Cornell & Diehl: Visions of Celephaïs 2oz

Product Number: 003-016-0339

A wisp of incense from the monastery at Leng. Exotic spice from the City of Ulthar. Wine fermented by the ageless Kuranes himself. Only in timeless Celephaïs could these esoteric ingredients be procured. A ritual performed over a bed of Red and Bright Virginia, with hints of Dark Fired Leaf and Kasturi results in an otherworldly aroma that beckons all dreamers back to Celephaïs.

The sixth entry into Cornell & Diehl's celebrated Old Ones series, Visions of Celephaïs combines Indonesian Kasturi leaf with choice red and bright Virginias and dark-fired Kentucky, resulting in a naturally spicy, complex base that's elevated by a unique grape wine topping. The combination makes for a unique aromatic pipe tobacco, with a deep, rich flavor, balancing spice with sweetness, similar to that of a tawny port. Packaged in 2oz tins with stunning Lovecraftian artwork, it's an excellent addition to the eldritch line, and quite unlike anything else we've smoked.

Celephaïs is beautiful!
September 30, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
Upon opening the Tin you are first greeted with pleasant grape scent. I ordered a fresh tin, and found it dry enough to smoke after letting sit for about 45 minutes. My first puff was a blast of flavor, sweet, and spicy with a strong grape aftertaste... Read More
Can you say grape?

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
When I popped the tin I started gagging on the thick, overpowering grape topping. 3 weeks of sitting on the far end of my bar, I can still smell it when I draw near. I cant bring myself to taint a pipe with this. It will probably end up in the trash.... Read More
Nothing but Grape

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
The grape aroma and taste is so overpowering that I didn't even finish the first bowl. I guess if you REALLY love grape, then this would be the tobacco for you. However, for me, the sickly sweet aroma and taste was too much to bear and I threw the... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
Best C&D aromatic blend ever. Best entry to Old Ones. Very unique. Do yourself a favour, by it & dedicate a pipe to get the most from it. I imagine it'll ghost badly & be affected by other ghosts too. The "grape wine topping" is fantasticly musty & c... Read More

An interesting blend that brings heavy notes of grape with a nice and smokey backing. Another hit in the Old Ones lineup.
Very Unique

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
By far the most interesting tin note I have encountered, for some reason it reminds me of what a Halloween bag full of candy smells like. The flavor is unique too, a little spicy, smooth, floral. Oh, and ZERO tongue bite! Overall very satisfying. ... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
This is a great blend, even if you’re not a fan of aromatics. There’s enough complexity in the component tobaccos to keep it interesting throughout the entire bowl, unlike many aromatics that fall flat once the flavoring burns off. The overall flav... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
I don't typically smoke aromatic blends but this one caught my interest as I've enjoyed all the other blends in this series (especially Dreams Of Kadath). I can taste the clove from the kasturi but what I really pick up is heavy grape must flavor. ... Read More
Very Nice

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
With the more negative reviews, I was a bit concerned I may not like this. A very pleasant smoke. The "grape" is not overwhelming, its more like something infused in wine. If you like that you'll like this. 4.5 stars.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
I found the tin note to be strong. The grape smell is strong, but the flavor is light and the room note is pleasant. My only caution is to smoke this blend in a meerschaum or corncob. I used a small briar and it has been ghosted which I will have to ... Read More

Nowhere in the description does it say grape. If I would have known that it’s grape I would have passed on this one ! Blah !
Sweet and Spice and all things Nice

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
Easy smoking; a lot less in your face than when you first open the tin. A pleasant sweetness on the palate, but this is not candyfloss and port. Not too easy to keep lit, but it might just be my ineptitude.
Best Crossover blend

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
Best aromatic i ever had. Sweet but not over power, smell pleasant and enough nicotine. Good for people that want to go back on aromatic, or can smoke around non smoker
It was a surprise

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
I bought this because I have liked all the other Lovecraft tobaccos and I figured, wothehell.. To my surprise, it was very different but very similar. I would never have pegged the topping as grape, but the incense quality was apparent immediately... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
I usually stick to Cavendishes and aromatic burley blends. The description of this one drew me because, for me, pipe smoking is about sensory relaxation and ambient transport (i.e., I can relax and be transported to a setting where the tin note, room... Read More
Not That Old

Reminds me of 1960 era London Dock. I had to let it air off for a day or so but then I enjoyed the unique taste. Nice change.
GHASTLY!

Allow me to begin by saying that C&D offer a staggering selection of excellent pipe tobaccos! Visions of Celephaïs is not one of them. Topped with grape or not Celephaïs is horrible! Tin note smells like a couple of incense sticks were ground... Read More

Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
I'm not sure what the flavor is. I notice some have mentioned 'grape'. Whatever it is, it's instantly noticeable. The tin note is exactly the same as the taste and room note. I literally puffed about 6 times on the first bowl before immediately scrap... Read More
I don't hate it?
October 29, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Visions of Celephaïs 2oz
It's grape. From the minute you open the tin, it's a whole lot of grape, but not like fresh grape, like children's vitamin grape. Lucky for me, I've always had a sick affinity to that flavor. That smell though, it's so strong. Not to mention I had a ... Read More
