New to Fox

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
Solid, Unassuming.

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

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

Here is the story. I am in the U.S. Coast Guard and was on patrol off the coast of south america, before I left I purchased briar Fox to give it a try. At first I wasn't that impressed but as the 60 day patrol wore on I dwindled my supply of other to... Read More
16oz. Better

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 16oz
Briar Fox is without a doubt the best all day any occasion smoke I have found. I find that the 16oz. package has a better flavor and moisture content. I just open the 16oz. bag and crumble some up for the pouch and store the rest in an air tight jar.... 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

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.
You love it- or hate it.

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
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
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

Worth A Try

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
I received this blend from a friend and upon opening I found notes of sweet lemon grass. The crumble cake is a good format for this blend as its fun to pack, easy to lite, and east to keep lit. The notes are sweet grassy, natural tobacco flavors. The... Read More
Superlative

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
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

Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
Well they sent some to me for free, so I thought what the hell. To my great surprise, I now "get" this blend. Full flavored and very satisfying. Generally when I finish a pipe, I'm immediately preparing the next one. After a bowl of this, ... 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.

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
Perennial Favorite

By: Dustin W.
Product: Cornell & Diehl Briar Fox 2oz
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
Very nice smoke

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

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.

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
