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.

This is 2nd time I
This is 2nd time I have purchased this blend. The first was years ago. I forgot how good it was and I remember it being pretty good. I really like it. It is a change of pace from some of the other blends that are considered Balkan. As far as Balkan blends, it is one of my favorites if not my favorite. Really a great taste.

This one is OK, I
This one is OK, I bought it thinking it was a different flavor and aroma than it is. It does blend well though 1 pinch to a bowl of Black Cavendish gives it a nice little punch without being overwhelming

Great smoke
Great smooth and cool smoke, it has a very Smokey tin note but the taste during a smoke is surprisingly very good. I would highly recommend black duck too anyone looking for a good smoke.

Dark and Smooth, Redolent of the Holidays
Smoked this one on Christmas Eve night. This has become a staple in my tobacco selections, right up there with Nightcap and Standard Mixture. Smooth and easy on the palate, a great blend while kicking back with a strong coffee and a good book. I was actually able to get a local tobacconist to stock this one on a trial basis (much pricier than PAC, though), just in case I need a quick fix. I hope it becomes popular locally.

This duck doesn't Soars
This blend from C&D strikes a perfect balance in every way. It is not only well balanced as a blend, it is also perfectly balanced among all genres. Whether you prefer English, Balkan, Virginia, VaPer, Burley or even aromatics blends, this Black Duck will not only satisfy but will enthrall you. There have been precious few tobacco blends that I have absolutely loved, right from the first bowl and right out of the tin. This is one of those precious few. It has the smokey Latakia but seems to be added with a light hand so that it does not overpower all the other flavors but compliments them. The Burley adds a nice nutty flavor without any bitterness that sometimes burleys can have. The unsweetened black cavendish adds a nice smoothness and slight natural sweetness that seems to be the glue that pulls everything together. In the tin, there is a slight hint of dark fruit reminiscent or virginia leaf but according to the tin there is no Virginia. Perhaps the black canvendish is a European style made with virginia, rather than the American style black cavendish made with Burley. Either way, this blend produces lots of creamy, flavorful smoke that is slightly sweet with a little spice and just the perfect amount of smokey-ness. I primarily like English and Balkan blends, with Virginia and Vapers a close second. If I could only smoke one blend, this would be it. It provides all the great characteristics of all these in one fabulous blend. You will not go wrong with Black Duck

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.
