Cornell & Diehl - Two Friends Series

Two Friends Label

Back in October of 1999, Gregory Pease stayed with us during a short vacation. Of course, when two tobacco blenders get together, talk will turn to tobacco. During one of our little day trips into the beautiful North Carolina countryside, we talked about how much fun it would be to collaborate on some blends. Later that evening over a bottle of fine single malt, the idea for "Two Friends" tobaccos began to take shape. After a couple months of planning, with two per day phone calls, recipe ideas bouncing back and forth over email, lots of experimenting, and a little good natured arguing, the brand was born.

About the blends, Greg says, "These are wonderful. Neither of us would have done them alone, but there was a synergy to our efforts, a merging of the minds. Each of our unique styles comes through, but they work together, like two friends should."

The label art depicts a wonderful old tobacco shed in Valle Crucis, NC. Greg took the photo, and we all thought it would be great for the label.

Comment:

A base of the highest grades of Cavendish, with just a bit of Burley, is enhanced with wonderfully sweet Virginia tobacos. A delightful tobacco flavor sets the stage, enhanced, not overwhelmed, by the addition of a little essence of Irish Mist. The room aroma is equally enchanting to those fortunate enough to be in the presence of the smoker.

Comment:

A blend of fine stoved Virginia and oriental tobaccos, rich Cyprian Latakia, black toasted Cavendish and just a pinch of Perique. The mixture is finished with a delicate top note of ginger, perfectly complimenting the complex flavors and wonderful aroma of the natural tobaccos. A subtle sweetness and gentle spice is present from first light to last puff, and a clean, dry ash demonstrates the tobacco's purity.

Red and bright yellow Virginias are combined with fine oriental leaf, toasted Cavendish, and just a bit of rich Latakia. Bed & Breakfast is wonderful for a morning or all-day smoke. Its delicate flavors and subtle nuances delight the senses. The room aroma is smoky without being overbearing.

Dark and mysterious! Rich with Latakia, Black Cavendish, dark stoved Virginias and Perique. A bit of oriental leaf adds an exotic spice. This is a tobacco for those seeking a big, powerful flavor that isn't harsh or overwhelming. One bowl, and you'll know just what caused the Deacon's Downfall!

A mixture for Virginia lovers! We start with naturally sweet red and stoved red Virginia tobaccos, add enough perique to provide some body and spice things up a bit, and finish the blend with a pinch of unflavored black toasted Cavendish. The color is reminiscent of the hues of a redwood forest; the flavor is rich and soothing, and the room aroma is as pleasing as a walk in the woods after a gentle spring rain.

A sophisticated, traditional American style blend! Red and lemon Virginias are blended in perfect measure with mild brown and unflavored black Cavendish tobaccos, and a bit of fine, high-grade burley leaf for just a little extra body. The blend is then delicately kissed with a subtle and intriguing flavor, enhancing the natural sweetness of the Virginias and providing a delightful, light room aroma.

Comment:

We begin with the finest Virginias and just enough Latakia to provide the taste that so many crave then press it to marry the flavors. We then tumble it out to a broken flake for easy packing and add just a touch of chocolate to awaken the senses. The end result is a blend that satisfies all day for a walk through the Dales yet is welcome in the drawing room in the evenings thanks to the warm chocolate aroma.
