Cornell & Diehl Black Frigate

Cornell & Diehl took the concept of a navy flake and turned it on its ear with their uber-popular Black Frigate, The begin with, it's a crumble cake, not a flake. Next, it contains a good amount of Latakia, and there's also some Turkish tobaccos in the mix. The most traditional part is the Virginia that's been imbued with rum. The result is a hearty blend that's rich and smoky with a hint of sweetness and tang from the rum, and some earthiness from the Turkish. If you want a "think outside the box" navy flake, C&D's Black Frigate might be what you're looking for.

Jolly Roger
I'm on board with it. BlackFrigate is a crumble cake rather than a flake like most Navy's and the Latakia, Turkish and Cavendish make it complex beyond what I've ever tasted. It is my favorite Navy by far .

All aboard the Black Frigate
Black Frigate is in the top 5 of my favorite tobaccos. It is delicious. The sweetness of the rum and the black cavendish married with the leathery smokiness of the latakia, all pressed together into an extermely tasty crumble cake. I cut a chunk off, rub it out and let it dry for about a half hour and load it into a good smoking pipe. If you like rum blends and latakia, you won't be disappointed.

Give it a chance
At First when I purchased this blend, I was blown back by the strong rum smell from tin opening. After a few bowls i wasn't sure if I liked it or not. It sat on my shelf for a few months until i gave it another try a few days back and have really enjoyed it since. smooth taste through entire smoke, I encourage anyone on the fence about it to get it.

Take a Ride on the Black Frigate
I've read a lot of different reviewers who don't care for the combination of Rum and Latakia in this blend. Personally I think it's fantastic! The sweetness of the rum tones down the Latakia just enough that it makes this a smooth smoke without the sometimes sharp effects of the Latakia. You still get all the benefits, earthy, smokey, peaty flavor but with a mild texture about it. Of course it's excellent quality which isn't any surprise from C&D. It's a great smoke with lots going on and makes an excellent all day smoke for English blend fans.
