Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd

Made for the founding president of the New York Pipe Club, the late Sailorman Jack, Billy Budd is a full-bodied Latakia blend with a solid supporting cast of other select pipe tobaccos, but what makes it stand out is the creaminess added by the use of wonderful maduro cigar leaf.

My Ideal Evening Smoke
This is a fantastic blend. The latakia brings the campfire-esque smokiness, which pairs very well with the cigar leaf. The creaminess mentioned is prominent with a retro-hale, and the aftertaste is similar to a single malt whisky; a nice earthy/wood taste, and no bitterness near the end of the bowl.

Stuff this in your pipe and smoke it!
I just love this one. I usually vary between aromatics, English and Latakia, seldom smoking more than 1 or 2 bowls; but I have never had a pipe tobacco as satisfying as this one. The first day I went through four bowls and have been smoking at that rate ever since. I can't stop smoking it. I even prefer it to the one I blended for myself. Billy Budd gives me the same satisfaction I used to get from smoking a good cigar.

Billy bud
thos is a great blend. It has a nice smoky Latinos flavor but the cigar leaf adds a great flavor unlike other english blends I've had. It's like the taste or a good cigar towards the end kind of musty woodsy and creamy. Very rich and full flavored from start to finish.

Bully Bud is a very stout smoke. Has a more cigar flavor to it so the transition for me from cigar to pipe was easy with this one.

Great English Blend
This one packs a punch! Lots of good woodsy flavor and plenty of smoke. Definitely not for the aromatic smoker! I wouldn't want a big bowl of it, but for something different, it makes a great change.
Customer Testimonials
Great, five stars, all the spice and body of a cigar here, and the quantity of latakia gives it a nice round finish. the downside? burns a little hot and fast, as it may be expected, maybe because it's really coarse ground, really big chunks. But none of this deprives this blend from being a great experience.
I love this blend! I am a cigar smoker, and was on the lookout for a cigar leaf blend that could replicate the cigar flavor that I crave. I think this is the closest one yet! I have enjoyed Habana Daydream by Cornell and Diehl in the past, but this is in my opinion better. It is a stronger blend which really brings out the cigar leaf. Don’t let the latakia scare you off. The blend is done in such a way, that I hardly notice the latakia.
Great cigar leaf blend but not too overpowering like some other cigar leaf blends. It was recommended by pipefriend on YouTube and the man knows what he's talking about. the cigar leaf and latikia work off each other. Will order more.
I was looking for a pipe tobacco that would replace my cigar cravings, which can get a bit pricey ($7-$12 a smoke). Billy Budd is the perfect switch. It's full bodied, a little peppery, a little smokey, and tastes like a medium cigar approaching the darker side of medium. And for $5 an ounce, it's far cheaper than cigars. My only regret is not buying more to increase the bang for my shipping buck.
As a former cigar smoker I was curious. This Blend was wonderful rich and full bodied and the cigar leaf sent it over the top. I recommend this to any cigar lover whose is thinking of trying a pipe or any full bodied blend fanatic. Will be purchasing again.
The best of the cigar blend tobacco. Full flavor, and full body smoke. I sometimes mix this with Carter Hall or John Bull because it has alot of latakia in it. For some reason it tastes the best to me in my larger size corn cob pipes. Excellent.
