Review: Cornell & Diehl Plantation Evening

Plantation Evening is marketed as a light blend of tobaccos, offering a middle-of-the-road English style blend. The name sounds as though it should be great to have on the porch some evening. So, this evening I will see how it lives up.

Tin/Jar Note: Smokey, molasses, deep sweetness and tobacco.

Visual: Mixture of dark and light tobaccos, cut into ribbons, but it's pretty broken up.

Flavors: I never picked up any really distinct flavors. Definitely had that true English style body, with lots of floral notes.

Smoking Experience: Starts off with tons of thick, white smoke. The flavors start out as soapy, from the floralness of the English blend, but that fades back quite a bit. After that, it's pretty one dimensional. Nothing spectacular, but it was smokable. I did have to light it quite often as well.

Tobacco Strength: Medium

Body: Medium

Room Note: Tolerable

Comparable Tobacco: Similar to Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Consign Cut Plug, but not as intense.

Conclusion: Smokable, but nothing I would run for.

Rating: 2 Stars AKA "Only when it is Free" - Would smoke a bowl if it was free and had nothing else
