Don Carlos is a light English and Burley blend that's been stoved for extra sweetness. As part of C&D's special, limited-production Scuderia series, it won't be around for long.

Notes: The Scuderia blends, a "small-batch," limited-production series, were released in April 2015 and honor several of the legendary pipe makers. This one honors Don Carlos.

A nice English that's been ruined by the addition of more of that old, harsh, degraded, breaking down at a molecular level Burley that C&D is trying to get rid of. While the harshness is minimized by the addition of other components it still sticks out like a turd in a punch bowl. Nice job, C&D.

Mild to medium in, I mean body and flavor. Burns well.

Cornell & Diehl - Don Carlos (Scuderia) is a balanced burley based English blend. The stoved burley adds a natural nutty sweetness that makes this such a pleasure to smoke. The Latakia is present but not overpowering. The Oriental/Turkish and the Virginia play supporting roles that add complexity to the mixture. The tin I smoked was aged two years before opening; and it aged beautifully. This is easily an all day smoke for me and I will be stocking up on several tins before it is gone.
