Cornell & Diehl: Briar Fox 16oz

Product Number: 003-016-0150

An exceptionally smooth blend of Virginias and Burley, and the personal favorite blend of the late Danish pipe maker Peter Heeschen, Briar Fox is pressed into an old fashioned crumble cake, making it easy to prepare for whatever consistency you prefer. Its flavor profile starts with a clean tobacco taste, heightens complexity at mid-bowl and finishes with a spicy character that will make you come back again and again.

My favorite contemplation smoke
February 28, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 16oz
This is one of C&D's core blends for a reason. Throw a rock and chances are you'll hit 1 or 2 pipe smokers who've tried it. And at the end of the day, it seems to elicit a love it or hate it response. I love it for many reasons. Firstly, I'm a bu... Read More

I wasn't blown away by this at first. However, the more I smoke the more I reach for it. This is a nice mild blend, burns well to a nice ash and takes to a flame easily. I will be buying more, this is really started to grow on me. As a follow up to t... Read More

It is good well it bites but other than that perfect.
Sweet, Nutty and Satisfying

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
I really enjoy Briar Fox. It has a sweet and nutty flavor with just the right amount of nicotine kick. It burns well, and the crumble cake format is fun to work with.
You love it- or hate it.

This is a quite different Tobacco. Of course, the tobacco looks beautyful, the cake in the tin looks just delicous. Typically for C&D it's also very heasy to handle and light. But the taste is quite different. It's absolutely not an complex toba... Read More
Top Notch..But..

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
This is first class tobacco and you can just tell when you smoke it. The only down side for me is it can smoke dry and dry me out a bit. But because that might be a personal PH thing i can still totally recommend this.
crazy like a fox!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
quickly, this has become my favorite blend. not very complex in itself, but makes up for it with a toasty, creamy, marshmallow smoke. dare i say, i like it even better than OGS.
Has Cavendish, one of my favorites blends.
April 04, 2019
Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
Maybe my favorite blend, maybe not, I can't tell. One thing is for sure, there is a small amount of Cavendish in this blend. Jeremy Reeve's of Cornell & Diehl even says so on youtube. Look it up. Could possibly be my favorite blend but will alway... Read More

Classic blend!

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
Excellent smoke straight from a 4/2018 tin. Wow! The spice is amazing and the burn was even. I was smoking with a clenched bent while putting up Christmas lights, so I was not sipping. Burned to the bottom and was nuanced the whole way.
Better than expected!

Heard about Briar Fox from a friend who said “I had to give a try.” Ok, I did and enjoyed it. The second bowl was even better! Will definitely order more!!
Excellent, and it's easy to see why this was a personal blend of a famous piper.
March 23, 2018
Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
This stuff is great right out of the tin, which of course is a huge boon for any blend. However, even with about six months of age, it really opens up. It's an excellent mix of Virginia and Burley. While that may sound a bit boring to some, it's not.... Read More
I like it

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
I do smoke this in a smaller narrow bowl. Let's the sweetness of the verginia come through and the burley gives it that nutty bread flavor and depth.
When it's good it's really good

I am a big fan of C&D blends on average and years ago Briar Fox was my introduction to the brand. It is among my favorite blends. My first experience was a dried out sample that was still pretty decent followed by a tin which was excellent. As tim... Read More

Raisins and spice for a top note! This Fox has no teeth to bite as long as you puff slow. The vitamin N is worthy, and it comes in a crumble cake square. Yes it's blazing hot as I smoke in the Arizona night heat, but the smoke is mellow and my feet a... Read More

This one is great. Doesn't require much attention. Its earthy and sweet. The moisture content is ideal directly from the package. The Burley's show up very early on if that is your thing and announce themselves increasingly through to the heel of... Read More

Just a great smoke. It is superb with a book and a good cup of coffee. I am guessing this one will only improve with age.
So far so good

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
I've just smoked 1 bowl but it's worth writing a review. I was expecting more burley but I'm pretty content with it being mostly Virginia. The burley adds more body to the blend. The Virginia is grass like and spicy. No bite and the flavor stays cons... Read More

I had a great dislike for this tobacco at first. It gave me terrible tongue burn, but having bought 2lb of the stuff I persisted with it and it grew on me. Now I simply can't get enough. No other tobacco comes close to the rich smoothness and flavour... Read More

Closet tobacco blend to Kingfisher by Butera

Add some blending PERIQUE and you have a close cousin to Butera's KINGFISHER by Germain.
Simple, good stuff

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
Almost the body and mouthfeel of a light cigar. Rich VA flavor, not sweet with nutty burley. Good quality tobacco. C&D and GLP always taste too green to me. This of course has that going on too.
Best of the C & D cakes... outstanding when aged a couple of years!

I added this to my standard tobacco inventory a few years ago. At that time is was routinely rated in the top 10 and is still highly rated today. It is very smooth and flavorful right from the tin. It has about the right mix of Virginia and Burley, ... Read More

While not a straight Virginia, Briar Fox is a very notable member of that particular family. The crumble cake is a welcome format that allows some flexibility of enjoyment. A full bodied smoke without the slightest hint of tongue-bite. It leaves me s... Read More

Briar Fox is my go-to Va blend, not because it typifies the genre, but rather because it turns it on its head. You will not find the haylike sweetness, lack of nicotine, or airy presence that distinguish many Va blends. Briar Fox is robust, sometimes... Read More

I moved to this tobacco from Samuel Gawith full Virginia flake, well, because it's always out of stock. The lb. can is difficult to manage because the tobacco is packed in so tightly, but the price difference is worth it to me. The smoke is very smoo... Read More

Upon opening the tin, I was treated to a plethora of scents; coffee, chocolate, cherry, vanilla, orange. Quickily filled a pipe, grabbed a lighter and then told myself to slow down, and enjoy this moment. What a great tobacco for relaxing with a ma... Read More

I'm not a fan. I really was intrigued by the crumble cake-- which is fantastically prepared, by the way-- but there just isn't enough in this bowl to keep my interest.
Ehh.

Not mind blowing. A easy smoking tobacco mixture. Good with coffee in the morning. Starts to have a cigarette taste towards the bottom. All in all not bad though.
Maybe not for me

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
If you are a C&D fan, this makes perfect sense. You're probably in love with Burley and can't wait to get through the VA to that nutty, chocolatey goodness. But I am a VA man. I like my VAs to be slightly sweet, with some natural depth to it, which... Read More

So poor taste!If you taste it once,you wouldn't taste it once more,because you can't bear it at all.In a word,I never believe that CD can produce any nice blended.
Good, but not great

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
It's a good smoke, and of good quality. A little harsh to my taste buds, though it seems to get better and smoother as the bowl progresses. Seems to have a cigar quality to it. If you're a pipe and cigar smoker, you'll enjoy this blend a lot. I'll s... Read More

Not much flavor here and actually a little bitter. The most uninteresting tobacco I have tried. Since I ordered this huge tin I will continue to smoke it at times. I suggest that you try someone else's before you buy.
Хороший табак

Прекрасный табак! Курится холодно, долго. Смесь прекрасно сбалансирована и имеет полный, глубокий вкус... Рекомендую всем попробовать.
