Cornell & Diehl enthusiastically presents their 2020 holiday season tobacco blend: Golden Days of Yore. This extremely smooth yet complex and sweet blend will be the talked-about blend of the season, particularly among the crowd of Virginia devotees. The solid base of beautifully balanced NC Red and Ontario Bright Virginia leaves is elegantly spiced with Greek Katerini and Dark Fired Kentucky, then cased with a Christmas-inspired fusion of caramelized sugar, allspice, cardamom, clove, cinnamon and lastly, dark rum.
The resulting profile is a mildly aromatic, tobacco-forward amalgam that is at once spicy, zesty, tangy and sweet. Inspired by a champagne punch that head blender Jeremy Reeves’ mother made for the family’s annual holiday party, this proprietary C&D formula will surely be favored by any pipe smoker as well as anyone within proximity of its delicious room notes. It’s an all-day, every-day blend with excellent cellaring potential.
