Arguably the most famous of Louisiana’s antebellum mansions, and certainly the most immediately recognizable, Oak Alley is a splendid namesake for this cellar worthy, new American standard. After establishing an impeccable partnership between sweet Red Virginias and white/brown Burleys, discreet amounts of Perique and Katirini Turkish are added to enhance both the flavor, as well as promote the coolest smoke imaginable.
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.
