Simple yet unique, heady yet versatile, elegant but still packing a whollop, we think you'll find this killer Virginia blend much as the settlers of the Old West found its namesake. Presented as a ready rubbed so it's quick to pack and smooth on the draw.

Cornell & Diehl - Derringer.

Note: from bulk, not a tin.

The blend's been rubbed to a coarse ribbon of medium brown and a few yellows. The aroma from the blend is an expected straight Virginia, and my moisture's good.

Derringer gives a rich tasting, Virginia, smoke. There's a pleasant sweetness, some of the usual grass and hay, and a fruitiness which gains strength throughout a bowl: for the first part of a bowl all the flavours are well rounded with one another, but towards the end the fruity character dominates. With casual puffing the temperature's medium, but if the pipe's strained it becomes a bit hot. Stressful puffing also causes it to bite.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

For flavour, alone, Derringer easily achieves four stars, but the heat and bite reduce this to three.

Recommended.
