Cornell & Diehl - Chopped Cigar Leaf.

For my smoking day, the evening normally constitutes a good cigar. But, over the past few days I've wanted my pipe instead. So, a bowl of Chopped Cigar Leaf seemed like a good concession!

Coarse Cut? Hell-yeah! It is, indeed, extremely coarse! But, it includes twigs, too. As I'd expect, the blend's a medium brown, but, forlornly, could use more moisture. The slight dryness means igniting a bowl is done without a hitch.

The flavour? Like a cigar, in a pipe! It's a little dry, slightly absinthian, and a touch woody. The main issue, when smoking it straight, comes from the lack of moisture; it burns hot and fast. Thank goodness for the coarse cut, without this it'd burn even hotter! I don't find it bites my tongue, though.

Nicotine: a bit above medium. Room-note: like a VERY pungent cigar!

Chopped Cigar Leaf? I'd recommend it for blending, but not for smoking unadulterated. Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Pipe Used: Savinelli Roma Lucite
Age When Smoked: New
