Delta Duel

The battle of the blends brings to you the Delta Duel. A head to head pipe blend that everyone will want to get their stake in. First we have Hearth & Home Signature Delta Days, a tobacco composed of a Virginia. Burley and Perique blend that is gives a bold flavor and enjoyable everyday smoke. Next, we have Cornell & Diehl's Old Joe Krantz which is composed of cubed Burley, red Virginia, and musty/sweet Perique. So now we call on our P&C Faithful to help determine which is the Delta Duel battle leader. At this time you can purchase both tobaccos at a low price and be able to smoke them side by side. Once you have tried them, come back and leave your review and tell us who the clear winner should be.

The best
This is about the only thing I smoke anymore. High nicotine content. Perfect with your favorite bourbon.

Great all day every day blend!
Though my favorite special occasion tobacco is G.L. Pease Quiet Nights, this is a satisfying smoke for all those days in between. Good character and smooth smoking, a stand out in its own right.

Great Blend
I wasn't sure if I would be a fan of Burley blends, so I started off with C&D Haunted Bookshop. I really enjoyed that blend. I love the Perique spice in things like Elizabethan Mixture, so when I saw that OJK was a really popular Burely blend that also had a good helping of Perique, I had to try it. I am glad that I did as I really enjoy OJK. I think both Haunted Bookshop and OJK will be regulars in my rotation from now on. OJK when I want that extra kick in flavor from the Perique and HBS when I don't. The fact that both are available in bulk is a bonus!

Try it you will not be disappointed
I agree with others reviews, a fantastic smoke. Smooth and enjoyable with your favorite beverage of choice. Today it was coffee tomorrow maybe something stronger 😋

Excellent smoke!! I'll be coming back to this one. Not an aficionado so that's all I got.

Great smoke
Even as I write this review I am enjoying a pipe full of this smoke. This reminds me of when you could still buy unfiltered cigarettes, Camel,Pall all, etc. I enjoy the nicotine content and the spiciness of the perique. Good job P&C. Will buy more.

Strong manly smoke perfect for Autumn/Winter
I always add a little 1Q or black Cavendish to sweeten it up a bit and take some of the Smoky aroma away. It's quite strong in both taste and nicotine levels. I smoked two packs a day and OJK got me to quit cigs!! Great by itself but again a pinch of something sweet really brings OJK to another level.

Delta Days
I like the flavor, and if you "hotbox" your pipe (like I do) the burley is friendly.

Old Joe Krantz
I really like VaPer blends, and this one is no exception. The added burley sets it apart from others and is really very nice in my opinion.

A Strong & Intense, Yet Very Flavorful Tobacco
Like Dunhill Nightcap, I have found that this is a tobacco one may not particularly enjoy with the first bowlful. Like Nightcap, it is quite strong and intense, yet very very flavorful. Whereas Nightcap has the Latakia punch, Old Joe Kranz, a Perique one. 25% Perique I hear. As I came to really love the deep, full, heady flavor of Nightcap, I have come to rather enjoy OJK. Ya have to live with it a while. My experience with OJK is that it has an effect like a decongestant/ antihistamine. It definitely will clear the sinuses! But once it has cleared the sinuses, the flavors from the nutty Burley, sweet Virginia, and yes, the Perique, too, can be really savored. As with a lot of the good rich tobaccos, slow going may bring out the best. So be careful not to chug to hard, or it will overwhelm and slam you pretty hard. Depending on your climate, OJK, like Nightcap, may not be as well enjoyed during very hot weather, but more savored in cooler seasons, and or climates. Aside from all these things, I feel it is a well constructed/ blended tobacco, and as is the case with most of C&D's blends, it does not require much if any drying time before filling the pipe. Lots of delightfully large pieces of Virginia & Perique leaf gifted to you in the blend as well.

VaPer lovers who occasionally crave a Burley-forward smoke should try it.
The mahogany Burley dominates this blend and imparts a woody taste, with rough edges that are smoothed a little by the sweet Virginia. The Perique brings both dark fruit and peppery sensations to the mix. I find a tinge of "Burley bitters" -- but that's not altogether bad here. Overall there is a lack of balance, but it is nonetheless interesting. Smoke volume and body are excellent. I can't work up 4-star enthusiasm for this blend, but VaPer lovers who occasionally crave a Burley-forward smoke should try it. Similar Blends: This is better than GLP/Cumberland. If you want to avoid the woody taste, go for RO/Fire Storm. I could even see C&D/Haunted Bookshop on the same shelf -- despite its musty overtones.

My new favorite
This stuff is awesome, too bad it didn't come in 8oz tins, guess I need to buy some jars. I guess if I have to compare it to something I would compare it to Old Joe Krantz but more mellow.

Old Joe Krantz
Being a lover of burly tobaccos and a daily smoker of Haunted BookShop, I felt I would try this blend. On opening the bag the smell was that of that earthy tones and pepper. Smoking OJK was very rich with perique and burly. The red Virginia's flavor was more to the back but still sweet as I smoked on through the bowl. The taste was consistent with all the different tobaccos coming through. Sipping this blend was an experience and is at its best smoked slowly. This blend smokes well all the way down to ash. For burly lovers and Va/Per lovers this is a great blend as a must try. If Va/Per is your type of blend then with the cube cut and dark burly it's fantastic.

Oh yea!
Oh yea! Draw it hard and enjoy the slightly pungent spicy taste of the Perique. But, sip it slow and, oh man, it tastes like the crusty whole-grain bread my father used to bake! It's time to offer it in 8-ounce tins! I'll be the first in line! -Roben

Good days down on the delta
I bought this to compare it to their vr blend. It is really good. The flavors blend very well, but I will stay with the vr blend for my personal taste. I do recommend this blend.

WOW! This pipe tobacco was love at first light! I read the background information on how Bob Runowski developed the blend in honor of his grandfather. I did a little research on Bob Runowski and sadly learned of his passing. I have the utmost respect
WOW! This pipe tobacco was love at first light! I read the background information on how Bob Runowski developed the blend in honor of his grandfather. I did a little research on Bob Runowski and sadly learned of his passing. I have the utmost respect for his blending skills after smoking this delightful blend. I tried big and burley, but became a little bored with it and (maybe it was the batch I got) but the big pieces of burley and burley flavor seemed to dicipate near the last third of the bag. I was a little apprehensive about Old Joe Krantz because of the reviews mentioning the heavy perique content. I'm glad I gave it a try. The burley is most noticeable, but the Virginias and perique are a great complement to a nice, rich, heady smoke. I love this tobacco and can smoke it all day, however, I also like 5 brothers which I will review shortly. I only like to smoke Old Joe Krantz when I have the proper amount of time and enjoyment this great smoke deserves. Bob Runowski, you have my respect and admiration. Also, thanks to P and C for providing such a wonderfully krafted and flavored blend!

Excellence.
Wonderful tobacco blend. The spiciness of the perique jumps out at you in the first third of the bowl, and then smoothes out with a nice sweet flavor of the virginia. Highly recommended. Being a va/per fan, I will be keeping this in my daily rotation.

Good Old Joe!
Old Joe Krantz is one of the first blends I had tried from C&D. Became a regular smoke and haven't looked back sense. It has a great full flavor, that is reminiscent of a good cigar. The perique comes in and gives it a bit of spice, but not overbearing. The Red Virginia gives it a bit of sweetness. All together a very full earthy smoke. Exactly what I was looking for and very glad this blend is still around.
