Named in honor of Pierre Chenet, the farmer accredited with discovering the process that turns Burley into Perique in 1824, this combination of Virginia and Perique, pressed into an old-fashioned crumble cake, is a Perique powerhouse for those who simply can’t get enough of this “truffle of tobaccos.”
Since its genesis, C&D has put an emphasis on superlative quality to create blends unlike any other tobacco on the market. In the early years, the company focused on English blends rather than the “over-the-counter” American Virginia and Burley-based tobaccos of the era. Today, we here at Cornell & Diehl keep that same tradition alive. From classic blends to mixtures that employ innovative processes like the C&D red Virginia Cavendish, you won’t have to search for long to find a handcrafted, lifetime favorite.
