Cornell & Diehl Oak Alley

Arguably the most famous of Louisiana’s antebellum mansions, and certainly the most immediately recognizable, Oak Alley is a splendid namesake for this cellar worthy, new American standard. After establishing an impeccable partnership between sweet red Virginias and white/brown burleys, discreet amounts of perique and Katirini Turkish are added to enhance both the flavor, as well as promote the coolest smoke imaginable.

Tin note of Rasins, stewed apricots, and sugar. Tobacco cut is Krumble Kake, the chunk of tobacco is marbled light brown, darker browns and black. Tobacco breaks apart easily and rubs out fairly easy, it is also quite moist and may need a little drying. Burns moderate with normal amount of relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild-medium. No flavoring detected. Taste is medium to full and complex, with notes of very grassy, very dry earthy, bitter roasted nuts, raisin bread, peppery retro, sour lemon, mild tangy sweet, mild wood, mild floral, and a mild herbal spice. Virginia is trading the lead with brown burleys and white burley, Katirini is supporting. Perique is bringing up the rear. Room note is pleasant to tolerable, and aftertaste is good.

I don't know how this blend hasn't received more reviews. I've tried over 80 tobaccos, and this is my #1 favorite, hands down. It's rich, subtly sweet and full of amazing complex flavor.

Pack a bowl, sit back and enjoy, in my opinion, one of the absolute best blends out there.
