I have had an opportunity to smoke a new offering from Cornell and Diehl - Evening RIse. I received an advanced tin before the Richmond Show and have been savoring the smoke. It's one of the few crossovers between the American burley-based/ latakia blends with a slight sense of turkish and virginia and cavendish. Very tasty w/o a cloying quality that virginias and cavendishes can impart. Actually, a few bowls into the tin, which is now empty, and there is a subtle natural overall sweetness. The bitter latakia offsets the blend nicely. Evening rise worked best for me in a larger pipe, which allowed the burley (rough-cut?) to set a base on which the other tobaccos build. Very reminiscient for those familiar with the old Philadelphia-favorite Burlington Arcade but more flavorful with the turkish. Highly recommended.

Evening Rise is very strong and very flavorful. I smoke a lot of Prince Albert and I love burley very much. When you open the tin there is a smell of earth and rich tobacco. There is no topping or casing that I could detect. What you smell is what you get. If you are not careful, the first light can sit you down hard. I have coughed more than once lighting this stuff. Again, there is the smell of earth! With all this going on, one would think that the flavor would be searing, but it isn't. It is as smooth as they come. The taste of earth and the rich burley stay the same throughout the bowl. The smoke is creamy and white and the aroma is that of oak burning. There is a little hint of cigar here also. This is not a cigar in a pipe, but there is definitely the taste and smell of a pretty good leaf. Let me say that if you were smoking some good burley and a buddy was smoking a cigar down the way, you would get the same aroma. By the way, this stuff also repels flies... Don't ask. The nicotine level seems to be the same as Royal Yacht, very strong and can give you a buzz. If you cannot handle the nicotine in the Prince, stay away. The ash burns down to a clean white powder that can actually be accidentally drawn through your pipe if you're not careful. This may be because the flavor remains the same down to the last puff and you might not know that you're finished until it's over. One knock and your pipe is ready for another round. Get it. Try it. Learn to love it.

Even though I love Burley, this one was not a bell ringer for this piper.

Appearance and Tin Aroma: Lots o' Burley, mohogany, and dark leaf aplenty too.

Packing and Lighting: It's a typical C&D quality product.

Initial Flavor: Starts tart and spicy. A little harsh on the throat as well.

Mid Bowl: Still harsh on the throat, a little bitter as well.

Bottom of Bowl: Ends with an astringent harshness that I can't get over.

Overall: Not only did it repel mosquitos, it repelled me too! It has quality components, but it just never got into the zone for me. After 3 bowls, gave the rest away, sorry...

I was lucky to snatch a tin from 02/2012 of Evening Rise... when I cracked the tin a loud "ppppfffffffft" sound came, louder than usual with fresh C&D tins. I almost got a heartattack... it smelled so damn acrid and pungent... an stinging scent came out of it. i guess the age must've developed some gases inside the tin. Sour, somewhat fruity, almost like someone had thrown-up.. no joke! The description says "repelling the mosqitoes" about a fresh tin.. a tin with 6 years of age on it will not only repell, but KILL those mosqitoes! ;-D Even after leaving the tin open for a day the scent didn't dissaper, I guess its just the aged tobaccos that give this smell and not only some gases that have developed over the years!

Oh boy.. I thought the smoke must be horrible considering the scent...nobody on here metioned a punget, stinging tin note...quite the contrary! But to my surprise it was perfectly fine and very tasty! The intriguing tin design paired with the decent strenght and full-bodied, rich taste makes it a soothing smoking experience for the evening hours.

The bowls start with somewhat muddled flavors that get more refined as you progress through the bowl. It's very earthy, pleasantly smoky and has sour-fruity nuances that actually remind me of Perique! There's only a whisper of sweetness, the smoke is richly tart and spicy. Halfway through a most pleasant nutty-sweet quality begins to develop that is consistent till the end of the bowl. The Turkish adds some smooth ethereal backbone to the dry smoke as well.

All i all this is very tasty and thank god that the vile scent from the tin note doesn't transfer into the smoke at all! This'll definetly repell the mosqitoes but please your palate, as promised in the description! But beware: A aged tin will KILL the mosquitoes and repell the wife! ;-)

Update regarding the vile-ish smell: I cracked my tin of GLP Gaslight (which is also produced and tinned by C&D) and found the exact same smell of "somebody has puked in the tin" with it, just a bit less intense. The only ingridients they have in common are the Turkish and the Latakia, and mytin of Gaslight is from 2016. So it must be the Turkish or Latakia producing that smell, and maybe the aging process plays into it. Still... wonderful smoke!

I love this stuff. The tin note is very smoky, both from the latakia and what I suspect is a nice helping of dark fired burley. The latakia makes it's presence known at the first light and then settles down firmly into the background. The latakia sets a great backdrop for the two main players: burley and turkish. These two seem to weave back and forth, taking turns at the forefront. It burns down a bit fast, but smokes smooth and biteless. Evening Rise is a bit of a sleeper in the C&D pantheon, but is most definitely worth a try.

This doesn't offend me as much as it did our distinguished gentleman below. In fact, like Ewell Gibbons, it reminds me a bit of wild hickory nuts. The burley's basic nuttiness brings Sir Walter Raleigh to mind, though I like that blend more for its honesty & unpretentiousness. It's a less hotter version of Wilke's fragrant Nut Brown Burley & a toastier, more subtle, less cubed version of C & D Canal Boat. I kind of like this, and I'm already revising this review as I'm about 3/4 of the way down the bowl. Actually, it's a light, pleasant indoor first pipe of the day blend for an autumn morning. Though I don't accuse C & D of marketing gimmickry, I think they need to give some of this blending experimentation a rest. After all, they make over 200 blends, many of them the finest creations in all tobacciana. Stick with what's good & with what works best instead of splitting hairs, trying to satisfy each & every miniscule taste combination. I'm from the school of thought that except for adding flavors or extracts, there are only so many things you can do with burley, virginia, turkish & latakia. It's kind of like Mexican food. You can wrap it sideways, lay it out flat, stuff it the size of a football, give or take the cheese. But when you get right down to it, it's a taco served 50 different ways for heaven's sake! Ah, what the hell, keep experimenting, C & D.

Last Sunday, at the club a friend of mine gave this to me as he did not particularly care for it so I thought I will try it out for a few days. These has a really sweet tin note but the description says there is no flavoring so I suppose it must be from the tobaccos. Maybe a mild topping? So, this is a Burley based blend with Latakia, Turkish and a little Virginia. All it is missing is the Perique. Ha. The tin art is very colorful I might add. This is a mild sweet smoke that does pump out a lot of smoke so I guess it could be a good Mosquito repellent. Several reviewers say that with their first light they detect the Latakia, for me and I could be just off my rocker but I felt like I was getting more of the Burley. Day two was pretty much the same, nothing new to add. I think this blend just has an identity crisis. Am I Burley? Am I Latakia? Or am I LBTV? Kind of hard to say. I am torn between two and three stars but since this is my review, I will go with two. Sort of recommend and there is no shame in that but not really much to crow about. It is okay but for me that is all. 091317 date of tin.

Upon first light I was surprised by what tasted to me like a touch of grape kool-aid topping. The enhanced sweetness stays throughout the bowl, however I prefer a more natural sweetness. I would like this blend better without the slight flavor enhancement, but even so this would not make it into my list of buy-agains. As I finish off this bowl I'm beginning to wonder what I'll mix into this blend to make it into a more enjoyable smoke experience. Maybe I'll just set it aside awhile and come back later to see if my impression of it improves with the next tasting.

Finishing off the pipe and setting it down, it strikes me that I like the room note better than the actual smoke experience.

Cornell & Diehl - Evening Rise.

The ribbons are all fairly even in size, medium and light brown, they have a slightly musky aroma, are on the dry-side.

Of course, because of the lack of moisture, lighting a bowl's easy. I get plenty of Turkish, lots of rugged Burley, far less Latakia, and the Virginia's are last. The overriding flavour's very sour and quite caustic (Turkish and Burley), with a touch of smokiness (Lat'), but the Va's extremely lazy; I get hardly anything. It burns consistently, albeit, fast. I get no bite.

Nicotine: quite strong. Room-note: not nice.

Evening Rise? The flavour's not bad, but the dehydration reduces the score. Somewhat recommended:

Two stars.

Enjoyable mild-medium burley/latakia/Oriental blend. Very balanced with subtle notes of the Latakia and Orientals. The burley and Virginias round out this complex and delightful smoke. No detectable topping. Mild-medium strength with a rich medium taste. A nice blend to smoke and contemplate the various different tastes. Very smooth mouth feel with no lingering after taste or mouth coating. The burleys and Virginias keep the burn going with no relights, burns to nice clean ash to the bottom. Might be a good blend to recommend to a newbie who wants to explore beyond aromatics. Recommended

Somewhat muddled flavor-wise in the beginning, but cool and smooth. Latakia gets the lead on the palate, burley at the exhale, with a nice spicy note on the retrohale. Complete tasting experience for the first half. Second half, the flavor and (especially) strength ramp up. Never harsh or biting, but strength predominates. Burley comes through at this point, when carefully sipped. Re-light on the home stretch brings out more of the burley. I'll probably stick to good cigars when fishing to repel the bugs, as I'd have to concentrate on not overdoing the draws with a full pipe of ER. 3 stars.

An interesting blend. I'm of the I mainly smoke aromatics, and while I don't know if it qualifies as an english, I liked it. The tin aroma is like that of a nice woodfire, whith little bits of spices and other pleasantries added in. The first half of the bowl was delicious, with the little bits of other non Virginias would catch and add to the already deliciousness. The only reason that I'm giving it three stars is because during the last quarter of the bowl it started to really get angry and bit me rather unpleasantly. However, given that the majority was fine I'm sure this'll work its way into my rotation.

This was a much anticipated arrival in the mail for me, that to be quite frank, fell a little short. The tin boasts a burley based tobacco with Latakia and Turkish. I was expecting something on the order of Balkan Sasieni,instead what I got was a rework (albeit a better one) of Canal Boat.This is perhaps one of the mildest tobaccos on the market today.If the old drugstore blends had used quality tobacco this is what they would have tasted like. The burley definitely has a light casing and the Turkish and Latakia are almost non existent. This really falls into the category af a natural aromatic. The room note is very pleasant.The burning qualities are superb and the taste is actually quite PLEASANT if you like Canal Boat or a very high quality of Barking Dog.The tin states "will please the palate and repel the Mosquitoes" I can almost say they have that backwards. The flavor is good but flat and the aroma is pleasing,yet not sweet.If you like the Serad Serenity series this would be an excellent choice for you. Luckily I also purchased the new "REVERIE" int the Serad line and that is actually quite wonderful. I am such a fan of C&D blends but this one you could skip. I am actually getting a little annoyed writing this review. This reminds of when DANN TOBACCO discontinued Sam Malloy's extra stout and relabeled it "LIBERTY" without telling any one.I am almost tempted to say "Shame on C&D"I have well over 100 reviews on this site and I feel I have always been fair. This time I feel cheated. This tabac is nothing like anything else in their line. It should go the way of their other "Constipated Cockroach blend" and just fall by the wayside. I am sorry to say this is the 1st time C&D pulled a marketing ploy and got caught. Skip this blend! I'll still give it two stars on its own merits.Like I said- just buy Canal Boat.

This has been my go to blend for a long time now. In my opinion it is the perfect burley smoke. It is earthy, woody, nutty, smoky and velvety smooth. It burns perfectly right out of the tin and is easy to handle. I have had this aged at all different ages from fresh to nine years, and I actually prefer a fresh tin because the components stand out a bit more. It is definitely burley forward with all the other tobaccos complimenting the burley base. This is far and away my favorite blend. I smoke it regularly but not constantly and every time I have it, I am happy it is in my pipe.
