Cornell & Diehl Crowley's Best

Named for the famed Walter Crowley of Fordham's football glory days, this is a medium strength mixture of burley, Latakia, and perique in an uncommonly harmonious natural blend. (A mixture for you, the old Fordham fans!)

I like the interplay between the burley and Latakia. They weave in and out for me as far as predominant characteristics of both are concerned. A little dry nut, a little smoke, a little incence. And then the reverse. Rather than bitter I sense more of a dryer mouth feel. A slight tingle on the tongue from the perique. Not a complex smoke. Not a tapestry of tastes but an enjoyable diversion from the sweeter Virginia based Latakia blends. I have to be careful though, for some reason this blend can scratch the back of my throat.

This is part of a bulk order that I placed years ago. I did not smoke any of this fresh, so I cannot comment on what recent production tastes like. In some ways, I maintain earlier commentary that this is the little brother to big n burley. In many ways it is not. The burley base is less potent and clearly less the focal point. The Condimental leaves play a huge role here with the Latakia being evident in the pouch aroma and adding smokiness. The perique adds a nice Tangy, acidic, fruity component with some pepper on the retrohale. I get strong black licorice hit every so often during a bowl. The nic hit is right at medium. Burley really sits back and allows the condimental leaves to shine here. This is a unique blend that in spite of the Latakia content, the wife did not object to. Definitely a blend for any piper with a sense of adventure. I find that this is one that goes well with black coffee. Also goes well with Red Bull as I found out unintentionally(who knew).
