Cornell & Diehl Blockade Runner 2oz

Cornell & Diehl Blockade Runner 2oz



Most tobaccos have a story to them. Blockade Runner is no exception. This true Navy cavendish crumble cake is made with hand stoved red Virginia and golden Virginia, soaked in a premium rum for seven days, then lightly stoved again, pressed and cut.

Now the story? The seven days are the time it took trade ships to sail back to New England from the Islands with the tobacco in their casks soaked with rum. The ship on the label is the Advance, the South's most successful blockade runner.

I am a fan of Navy Flake in general, and I do believe this one is my favorite. That makes it a Paul's Pick.
