Cornell & Diehl Red Odessa

This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

Cornell & Diehl Red Odessa is a flavorful blend of toasty, earthy red Virginias, rich Turkish tobacco, smoky Cyprian Latakia, and zesty Perique. The flavor is like a traditional English blend, but the fact that all the Virginias are red gives it more depth. Because red Virginia tends to be less sweet than bright, the addition of the Perique adds its own dark fruit sweetness, and kicks in a bit of spice to make the flavor even more intriguing. If you're looking for a Latakia blend that walks a different path, you'll enjoy C&D's Red Odessa.

Good Flavor and Simple
Pretty light smoky flavor with slight tang and mildly spicy, burns well and loads easy. Not my favorite, but very good.

C and D Red Odessa
1st let me state that I have been smoking a pipe for about a year now. My palette cannot pick out a touch of this, or a hint of that. When I first opened the bag it came in, I could smell a cedar/smokiness. After a few bowls to get familiar with the blend, I can pick out the Perique with a retro-hale, it's not too strong, about perfect, not a fan of real strong Perique. About a third of the way down to its finish is when it develops a nice rich flavor. I am a fan of English /Balkan/Latakia blends, and have no problem smoking them when it is hot out. This is a decent, medium strength smoke that I will probably get more of in the future, the only problem is that I still have hundreds to try.

Red Odessa
Big bag of blending perique. I'd be hard pressed to find any latakia or turkish, in this. Trace virginia MAYBE.

Grows on you, but not my favorite
Not my favorite C&D mixture. I find it a little bitter and ashy-tasting, which is probably because of the Turkish. If I smoke it regularly, it grows on me so I don't knock it. But I think I prefer C&D's Oriental Silk or Orion's Arrow for my occasional Turkish moods.

When your winter tastes change to English/Balkan blends this one is a must try for the cold evenings or frosty mornings with a cup of tea
This is an absolutely wonderful, solid Balkan blend. It has a deep, rich taste that anyone familiar with Cornell and Diehl English blends will instantly recognize and appreciate. This taste is also common to the best of the G.L. Pease blends, also made by C&D. Rich satisfying Red Virginia and Turkish dominate supported by Larakia and a touch of Perique rounds out the spicy mixture. Very full flavored but not a Latakia bomb by any means. Every component shows up in its own good time providing wonderful balance.
