Cornell & Diehl Pirate Kake

Cornell & Diehl Pirate Kake is a firmly pressed departure for the person who loves Latakia. Instead of the usual addition of Virginia to the Latakia and Oriental elements, Pirate Kake uses Burley to give it an intense amount of body and a robustly rich mouth feel. When we say that this is for the Latakia lover, we mean it, as C&D's Pirate Kake is made with 75% Cyprian Latakia. For the smokiest experience you can get, this is the one to try.

If you like Latakia, try this.
This is a Latakia bomb just like Captain Earle's Ten Russians only more so. Definitely not for neophytes or those who like aromatics. But, if you gravitate to the smoky taste of Latakia, you will be well rewarded. Has a good nicotine hit as well. This has become my favorite and will continue to be so unless I find something better, which is problematical. I don't see how anyone could improve on this. I am currently smoking 2-3 bowls a day. I smoke it with a 9 mm charcoal filter which seems to mellow the taste.

Excellent
If colors had taste, then this would taste like a deep mahogany/brown. If you take your coffee black, then you may appreciate this blend. Very flavorful.

WOW
WOW. Great smoke for those that like English and/or Latikia. Makes many others I've tried pale in comparison. I will definitely be keeping this in my regular rotation of smokes.

Love It
If you like latakia you'll love this. However, you won't get any complements on the room notes. Breaks off easy, let air for 10 - 20 minutes, and you have a great smoke. Love the art work on the tin too. Makes one feel very pirate-y, arrrrrrrr.

New Favorite!
I am a Big fan of English style tobacco. My Favorite blends have always been Dunhill 965,Nightcap and G.L. Pease Gaslight and Quiet nights.....I am not a huge burly fan normally So when I seen that this Blend had it as a component I over looked it for a long time. I wish I hadn't of. It's a very Smooth and delicious English Style Blend and I find myself reaching for my Jar of this more than my other standard tobaccos I've mentioned before. If you love English tobacco you will love this Blend. I'm glad I finally gave it a shot.

Heavenly Smokiness
Pirate Kake is great and there isn't too much more than that that I can say. If you like latakia that is unique but still definitely a strong latakia flavor, then Pirate Kake cannot be beaten. As a bonus, it comes all bricked up so that you can make your own cut! This is of course a brilliant option!

Pirate Kake, Delicious
I've been sampling English style latakia-based blends, looking for a replacement for my old favorite, Balkan Sobranie 759. Pirate Cake was very good, but I settled on Dunhill Nightcap, which came closer to the beloved flavor. I also considered Balkan Sasieni, also very good, and H&H Black House, which was a disappointment, to my taste. Surprisingly, Nightcap is a bit less expensive than the others and is available in bulk, which I prefer. A win-win all the way 'round! In the course of my search I had the pleasure of talking tobacco with a P&S customer rep which was most helpful and enjoyable.

Holy Latakia, Batman!
I took a risk and plunged 8oz on something I had yet to try. But at 75% Latakia, I had a good feeling I was going to love it. And I was right! If you love Latakia and want to try something different than a standard Lat Bomb, Pirate Kake is worth a shot. It was well worth it to me and will be stocking up before too long!

Good stuff!
I was very impressed with the flavor of this blend. Spicy, exotic, a tad bit sweet, toasty and full of all that good stuff a Latakia lover looks for. This full bodied treasure is not for the average palate, its very complex and layered with define excellent flavors. It really challenges the taste buds and really opens up the sinus!. Every time I smoke a bowl of this it gets better and better. Its quality profound pressed makes of goodness that breaks up real nice, just let it dry a bit before you pack it and don't pack it too tight. This stuff is so tasty it makes my mouth water. It is Just so jam packed with flavor its super full bodied, rich toasty and oh so Smokey. So go ahead and get you some good Ol Pirate kake by Cornell& Diehl, if you like full bodied Latakia blends then this is the cure for you, I promise.

Nice smoke.
Can't believe it contains as much lat as it does.Very mellow, lasts a long time and is easy to light. Not my favorite but good enough,to stay in rotation.

Latakia lovers blend!
If you are looking for something different in an English blend this is the kake for you! First off no Virginia's here. Strong burleys and strong Latakia. The cavendish and Turkish add a slight sweetness. Over all the Latakia is very strong with the burley. It's a great tobacco blend for Latakia lovers to try! Nice departure as C&D calls it.

Full Flavor - No Bite
When I first got back into smoking pipes, a local cigar shop was getting rid of the pipe products he had - apparently not enough pipes smokers in the area. He gave me the remaining tobaccos he had. C&D pirate cake was among them. Lucky me! For as heavy and robust a smoke it is regarding flavor, it is also an incredibly mild smoke. There is no bite to this blend no matter if you are puffing lightly or chugging like a freight train. I also like the fact that it is easy to load, no knife needed to cut as it crumbles in your hand. I just pull it apart, load and light.

Skallywags need not apply
Pirate kake is great stuff, 75% Latakia but it's blended well. Of course it's smokey but not over kill. Very smooth thru the nose. It's just a great blend. This is a blend for real men. I bought a pound.

Latakia In Your Face, Pal!
I've bought three pounds of Pirate Kake over the years. It is my go to blend. I originally bought it because someone suggested it was a good substitute for the perpetually unavailable Esoteric Penzance (hence the name "Pirate Kake". Get it?). Well, that's akin to saying that a Peterbilt is a good substitute for a Corvette. The Penzance is a gracefull ballerina on the tastebuds, while the Pirate Kake is a ham-fisted heavyweight boxer. Make no doubt it, PK is all about latakia, and it will pumel you with rich, smoky goodness. There is absolutely nothing subtle about it. If you passionately love latakia, this is a good blend to try...the best, as far as I'm concerned. But if you're looking for a blend where latakia is just a part of the whole, one of the singers in the choir, man...do yourself a favor and check out Plum Pudding or Frog Morton. Latakia is the soloist here, and it doesn't share the spotlight with anyone.

Good smoke
This is a nice, robust smoke. It burns very well, and stays lit. I like Latakia, but this smoke is rather overwhelming for me.

Pleasurable at first
Initially, this was a beautiful cool smoke; as the tobacco matured and burned, it lost its luster.
Customer Testimonials
The first few times I smoked this blend, I thought it was pretty rough and uneven, so I put it aside. Months later and out of my preferred stash, I went back to it-- and was I surprised! It had evened out beautifully and allowed for a rich, wholly flavorful complexity to shine through! Terrific stuff if you've got some time to wait.
My favorite latakia blend! Rich and smoky with lots of Vitamin 'N'. Very smoky, very flavorful, very much a must buy for those of you looking for a blend with lots of latakia flavor.
Smelled good and smoky but when smoked it was uneventful. Very one dimensional and uninteresting. No complexity at all. Smoked in a cob.
Very awesome latakia lovers blend. Cool smoking and flavorful, roasted flavors with a slight sweet background note.
