Cornell & Diehl Gentleman Caller

Grandma always kept a couple bowls of this fragrant blend of Virginias, burleys, and a dash of deer tongue and perique around as potpourri to make her favorite beaus feel right at home when they came calling. A Robillard blend.

Tin: Sweet, leather, vanilla, ripe fruit, chocolate; light brown with flecks of black perique and quite a bit of grey, which I presume deertongue. A varied cut from rough to wide ribbon, some rather chunky, with a flake here and there. At just the right moisture level to borderline dry. Not at all sticky.

Packing & Burning: No problem, one match to start, but burned a little completely down the bowl.

Taste & Aroma: Top of Bowl: Unobtrusive enough, vaguely sweet, mildly refreshing. A mild salsa interferes with determining the taste.

Mid Bowl: A slight bit more depth. A wisp now and then vaguely mimics the tin aroma.

Bottom: From time to time, the deertongue, sweet vanilla, is barely sensed.

In subsequent bowls, the pungent truffle-like perique and smoky latakia are fleetingly noticed, along with an occasional cigarette backdrop.

Nicotine: Medium

Overall: A blend that could be appreciated indoors. Not a very flavorful smoke. It has a bit more nicotine than I'd like for an all day smoke.
