Cornell & Diehl Star of the East Flake

Cornell & Diehl Star of the East is a rich Latakia blend with a healthy dose of Orientals to add complexity and to amplify the aroma. Sweet red Virginia is added to bring in additional element of flavor. The end result is a very satisfying blend for the Latakia fan, especially those who enjoy the flexibility of preparation that a flake tobacco allows. Fans of hearty Latakia blends will fall in love with C&D's Star of the East Flake.

My Favorite English
As English blends go this one has a unique flavor / nose, no bite but I find it tastes better longer when smoked at a slower pace. Truly my favorite English and yes the flake is a bit better than the bulk.

Amazing English.
Smokey and complex. Tin is better than bulk. Room note is strong and will clear a room.

Latakia bomb
I dont understand how this stuff has only 3 reviews. Its one of my favorite english blends. Highly recommend if you like Latakia, try to let it sit for a year or 2 before braking the seal if you want an even more superb smoke.

Yes its good
Still one of C&D's best blends, and yes get the flake not the loose ribbon cut. Such a difference in palate and finish.

For Latakia Lovers
If you love Latakia look no further. Smokey deep rich bold flavor that harmonizes with the Virginias and orientals beautifully. If this tobacco were a symphony clearly the Latakia is the melody and the Virginias and orientals the harmony. Together they all make beautiful music together. I'll be keeping Star Of The East close. No tongue bit at all, cool as a cucumber. But sip it for maximum flavor. This is a winner!
Customer Testimonials
I am a bit reluctant to give a poor review, but I was not happy with this blend. I found it difficult to enjoy this blend. I enjoy English blends of all strengths, but I found this blend intolerable. Muddy, texture-less; I stopped about 1/3 way through after two attempts.
If you like English baccy, Cornell & Diehl Star of the East is another good one. Recently I was blessed by a fellow from http://pipesmagazine.com/ who gave me this blend, together with C&D Divinci, and Dunhill Early Morning Pipe. As a novice, I find these blends to be rather similar just varying strength. Returning to smoking a pipe after 15+ years away, I'm finding I like the English blend a lot, and my wife actually likes the smell of these over aromatics. This is a mild to med smoke. Great traditional "room notes." I just finished smoking a bowl. It lights well, stays lite and smoked to the bottom. Give it a try. If you don't like it - send it to me!
