It has been a couple of years since I've posted any C&D blend reviews and I have smoked nearly 100 tins of their various offerings in that time. So, it may be awhile before I get to all of them.

Okay, now who wouldn't want to try this blending compilation straight? I split a bag with a friend and when he sent me my share I loaded up. Yuck! Okay, so all was not lost, right? I added about 30% of this Burley/cigar leaf to 70% Dunhill Royal Yacht (Murray's era and one of my favorites). Yuck again! So, anybody want some really dry Chopped Cigar Leaf?

C&D Chopped Cigar Leaf - Pennsylvania Broadleaf cigar wrapper tobacco chopped into a ribbon cut. PA Broadleaf is a powerful, earthy, semi-sweet tobacco. It offers coffee, brown sugar, and barnyard (in a good way) notes. It smokes dry and cool. I have only smoked it in cobs in fear that it would ghost a briar. This tobacco should blend well with other tobaccos maybe Latakia, Burley, Virginias. Smoked straight however it is enjoyable on its own. It's essentially smoking a cigar in your pipe.

Pipe Used: Cobs

Cornell & Diehl - Chopped Cigar Leaf.

For my smoking day, the evening normally constitutes a good cigar. But, over the past few days I've wanted my pipe instead. So, a bowl of Chopped Cigar Leaf seemed like a good concession!

Coarse Cut? Hell-yeah! It is, indeed, extremely coarse! But, it includes twigs, too. As I'd expect, the blend's a medium brown, but, forlornly, could use more moisture. The slight dryness means igniting a bowl is done without a hitch.

The flavour? Like a cigar, in a pipe! It's a little dry, slightly absinthian, and a touch woody. The main issue, when smoking it straight, comes from the lack of moisture; it burns hot and fast. Thank goodness for the coarse cut, without this it'd burn even hotter! I don't find it bites my tongue, though.

Nicotine: a bit above medium. Room-note: like a VERY pungent cigar!

Chopped Cigar Leaf? I'd recommend it for blending, but not for smoking unadulterated. Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.
