Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde is a wonderful companion piece toe the original Billy Budd. The item that made Billy Budd unique is still present in Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd Blonde - cigar leaf. But in this blend, the Latakia is missing and replaced by sweet and spicy Perique. This is a remarkably robust blend with some spice and fruitiness that will wake up your palate. Give some a try.
