Cornell & Diehl Black Duck

Richly earthy and woodsy, this Cornell & Diehl Black Duck tobacco blend of unsweetened brown and black Cavendish (specially cured Kentucky Burley), Latakia and Turkish Oriental leaf is a hearty medium to full-bodied blend indeed. Certainly not an elegant smoke, it is nonetheless charming and rather complex once the initial surprise at its strength and earthiness subsides. If you prefer a fuller bodied blend, then Cornell & Diehl Black Duck pipe tobacco is right up your alley.

Good filler.
I found I can mix C&D Black Duck with my other choice C&D tobaccos, it does not take away or add any change in the flavor to a great degree, but it fills the jar and gives me a great smoke.

So far my favorite C&D blend - A great introduction to Latakia and Orientals
First off - I'll start by mentioning I'm not a huge Cavendish fan and haven't found a C&D blend I'm really drawn to - that said I really enjoy this blend. If you're looking for something a bit different than the typical "Latakia Bomb" (but like Latakia) then this might be your pick. This is for sure a smokey blend (campfire is often used to describe) but for the most part smooth and burns fairly cool. Tin note is very pleasant - probably among the nicest of what I have in the Latakia section of my cellar and moisture is ready to smoke from the tin with no drying time needed at all. There are a significant amount of larger pieces of leafs which may help to keep things burning slow and cool. If you're a fan of McClelland's Frog Morton series or Russ' Mountain Pass you'll likely enjoy this C&D blend too. This isn't challenging on the nicotine side and even with aggressive puffing there's no bite. Could you smoke this all day long? Perhaps not but a few bowls in a day - sure. I say this would be a great smoke after some BBQ or a nice steak on the grill or simply accompanying a decent Scotch or Bourbon. Almost all savory flavors with little to no sweetness - some similar blends have an almost "peppery" taste - Black Duck does not. I sampled this first in a MM cob and then in a larger bowl Peterson (shape 68) briar. In the cob the time spent was about 35 minutes in the Peterson (larger bowl) was a little over 45 minutes. Both with minimal re-lights and the taste stays fairly consistent down to the last 1/4 bowl. With no Virginia or Perique - it's a nice change from what I've been smoking lately. Balanced and Smooth are terms often overused to describe blends but this really does meet those descriptions.
