C&D combines high grade white and dark Burleys from Kentucky, then make their own small-cut cubes. A light pack will reward you with a delightfully cool, and long lasting smoke. Regarded as a blending tobacco.

Notes: This was an Amar Blends Co. mixture. Cornell and Diehl bought the rights of all their old recipes.

What you see is what you get. I have purchased this blend on two separate occasions because I like an honest burley every now and then as a change of pace.

This blend is cube cut, packs easily and burns well. Like most C&D blends, it is dry in the bag, but, does not smoke particularly warm. I think this is a characteristic of all burleys, but this is a high end burley, more refined than most.

If you are a burley fancier and have not risen above Prince Albert type burleys, well, here's your chance to finally get a ticket into the first class section. If, however, burley is not your bag, then leave this bag alone.

Very respectable strength and quality from C&D. I liked the quality of this cubed burley when I tried Crooner blend, so I ordered a bit of the straight stuff to try. It's knot in the chest strong! Probably not what most folks would smoke alone. Very easy to pour and smoke. Crisp, spicy zing with the flavor (for lack of better descriptions) of fresh cut alfalfa? Less bite than I anticipated. I plan to use this cube cut burley to doctor up milder blends that I like but find uninspiring to smoke. If you plan to smoke much of this stuff straight, I'd recommend a screen in the bottom of the pipe, or at least a pinch of rough cut or ribbon to keep the draw clear and free of chunky bits.

If you have ever wondered if you clould just buy "shake," this is it. I was expecting a cube cut like PS Cube Cut with no mild topping. These cubes are smaller, and most of mine in the bag had delaminated to produce very small squares of tobacco. Think of a narrow ribbon cut to produce small squares. Pouch note was tobacco goodness and maybe a whiff of cocoa.

I gravity packed this, and there is not really another way to load it. It gave it a firm tamp and it took a match well. It burned cool and without incident, and was easy to keep lit. It had a pleasant earthy taste with a little molasses. It had a little more nicotine than I expected. The smoke was full and smooth.

I can believe the small squares might be a problem for some draft holes, but I did not have a problem with it. There was a slight spiciness in the snork, and it made my gums tingle a little on the clench side. I was smoking this at the office and ran out to use the copier. When I came back, I found the room note quite pleasant.

This is really a premium burley smoke in the same camp as Uhle's 00 and PS Burley 702. There is no topping that I can detect. It packs more of a punch than these cousins, and it has more flavor. I liked it.

This one is easy to recommend to anyone who likes burley.

The white and dark burleys combine to offer very light molasses, oats and cocoa, some earth and nuts, a touch of sharpness, and has a moderately toasty, slightly woody quality. It has a rather mild sweetness, and is mostly a dry smoke. The nic-hit is mild. Won’t bite, but can get harsh if puffed fast, and it does sport a little roughness. Burns clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent flavor from start to finish. Hardly leaves any dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. The after taste is decent, and linger just a mite. Can be an all day, one dimensional work and play smoke that works better as a mixer. Two stars on its own, three as a mixer.

"white and dark Burleys from Kentucky", cubed. Yes, their description is correct. It's a blender and priced as high as their Red Virginia Cavendish which should indicate their own internal demand for the product.

It may be a blender but sometimes I just want to smoke tobacco without a lot of fuss and without being challenged to fathom the nuances of flavors. This has just good tobacco flavor nothing more, nothing less.

This is the blend I used to enhance Durbar and make it smokeable for me.

Burleys it seems always gives me 1heckofabuzz- nothing that will turn me green or make me tired, so i love it. On its own in the bag it smells like cereal (think all bran) Charring brings about very strong scent, the flavor is pretty simple but has huge body. Smoking down the bowl reveals smoky vegetal & oat kind of flavors. For me this is really great on its own. Mildly acrid taste with DGT but that fades quickly enough.

Cornell & Diehl - Cube Cut Burley.

I usually have an English or VaPer as my Go-To, but fancied this due to the simplicity of it.

Apart from a few leafy pieces the majority of the blend's made of quite neat, small, cubes. Being supplied in bulk form the loose pouch has allowed any excess moisture to escape.

On to the smoke: it's an unrefined, almost asperous flavour. There's no sweetness, and I wouldn't call it smooth; it's nutty Burley through and through. The current description says "a light pack will reward you with a long smoke", but I find it goes too quick unless it's been packed quite firmly. The temperature of the smoke's medium and it's free from bite for the whole duration.

The room-note's pleasant to tolerable and the nicotine's just above medium.

This is good quality, but I couldn't smoke it on its own regularly.

Three stars.

I am reviewing several C+D blending tobaccos as a precursor to some blending experiments. I know not many people blend, but these reviews may provide some hints to those wanting to do so.

Definitely a bit milder and slightly more earthy than the dark burley. It provides the kind of airy "toasty" yet bitter smell and flavor familiar to fanciers of this mutation. Probably a good balance to denser flavors of burley and va.

This is some stout Burley! I ordered about four ounces of this after I finished 2 ounces of Crooner, as I figured this is what I loved about that blend. I have to say, this stuff is great! A little stronger than I want, for my preferences, but a good, hearty Burley.

Of course there are the classic Burley overtones of nuttiness, chocolate, and earthiness, but there's a lot more, too. This is three different kinds of burley, which have been pressed into a cake, sliced, and cube cut. It's not as complex as a five year old Virginia, but there is definitely enough complexity to keep one interested.

All in all, this is a great tobacco, whether for a mixer or to smoke straight. Be careful with it, however. It's definitely a 3.5 for me. Due to the strength, however, it's not everyone's cup of tea. Also, be careful of little flaming cubes popping out of the bowl while you smoke it.

I rarely smoke this by itself, but it's not that bad alone. Has some burley nuttiness to it. I prefer to use this as a mixing blend for aromatics, giving aromatics a nic hit. Not quite a good of mixer as five brothers, but not bad. If you are looking for an awesome cube cut burley blend, try Crooner!
