Cornell & Diehl: Smokingpipes 20th Anniversary Blend: XX Flake 2oz
Product Number: 003-016-0344
In early 2000, I began considering the prospect of selling pipes on the internet. I incorporated Laudisi Enterprises that May, registered Smokingpipes.com that June, and we sold our first pipe that November. Twenty years and lots and lots of pipes and pipe tobacco later, Smokingpipes occupies a special place in the hobby. To celebrate, we've created two distinctive Virginia based blends, crafted by Cornell & Diehl, each featuring a significant percentage of 18-year-old Perique.

2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Smokingpipes.com, and to commemorate such a milestone we've partnered with numerous members of the pipe smoking community to develop and release several projects throughout the year. We're excited to present Cornell & Diehl's contributions in the form of two special SPC 20th Anniversary tobacco blends: XX Flake and XX Flake Dark.
XX Flake features bright Virginias and two Oriental varietals alongside the vintage, 18-year-old Perique — offering a nuanced flavor profile of spice and citrus notes, bolstered by the intriguing essence of Orientals overtop the familiar Virginia and Perique tobaccos. Limited to 5,000 serialized tins.
