Cornell & Diehl's Wintertime Reserve: Evergreen is a special VaPer comprised of stoved and unstoved red Virginias, unsweetened black cavendish, and a whisper of perique. Pressed and sliced into delicate flakes. A subtle, nuanced, and contemplative smoke.

Notes: A special, seasonal extension of the Small Batch line, all four Wintertime Reserve blends are crafted by hand, one small batch at a time, from recipes specially selected by head blender Jeremy Reeves. From a fragrant aromatic to English and Virginia staples, all these blends are pressed and cut into either flakes or old-fashioned crumble cakes, and packaged in special, festive tin art.

I received this blend for free as a Christmas Gift alongside one of the new Peterson Short pipes. It's a broken flake, the first of these I've ever had the joy of smoking. I'm partial to VaPer and perique heavy English blends. I found it packed nicely into the Peterson's small bowl and smoked fairly evenly after a few attempts at lighting. The Virginias were rich and creamy with the added sweetness of the cavendish really pairing nicely with the smoky perique. I'm a big fan of this and I hope they release it next year. I will note that I did get a bit of tongue bite, which I typically only get from cavendish blends, but fairly mildly. On the whole, I would suggest this tobacco for those who need something nice for a cold-weather treat. I find it pairs well with black tea.
