C&D pays tribute to the Old North State battle that led to victory in the Revolutionary War. Old Belt Red and Bright Va's are combined with a bit of Turkish then stoved, pressed and sliced into flakes.

Medium Extremely Mild Medium Pleasant

Guilford Flake held me spellbound. Another epiphany. From the freshly opened tin, the nose delivers a sweet fruitcake, with its surface a bit dried, still moist inside the sponge. When the pipe is alight, nothing implies the fruitcake. Nothing asserts itself boldly. The bittersweet taste is modest and the woodsy note modest. This perfect match of “modest” is consistent to the last puff. The silky smokes give a subtle bittersweet taste as that of deeply roasted coffee beans, plus dry crisp smell of smouldering dead leaves in a distant autumnal garden as of some Kyoto temple, cool, misty, oriental and somewhat nostalgic. A mélange of a bit tangy kicks lingering on the palate and the slightly sweet woodsy smell of roasted oriental chestnuts somehow gives a soothing effect. This is more than a tobacco. It reminds me of something I miss in retrospect, in a distant past.

Ah, Cornell & Diehl, Why am I so disappointed in so many of their blends? This is very "old School" , think Old Joe Krantz. Yes, this is sweeter, it doesn't bite, but it's just not interesting. It has that "maybe this has Burley" taste. No reason for me to buy again.
