Well, this is a first for me: I was able to obtain and make available a Cornell & Diehl small batch offering on the official street date! Celebrate with me by being one of the first to obtain a tin or two (or three, or four...) of this excellent blend!
Merging the Old World with the New, Sansepolcro is a very special entry into the Small Batch project — carefully blended from unique, Italian dark-fired leaf and some of the finest red Virginias from North Carolina. Aromatically spicy with earthy, clove-like undertones, this Italian dark-fired leaf is grown in the Sansepolcro region of Italy, which boasts a history and tradition of tobacco cultivation to the 17th century. Combined with mellow citrus and bread-like notes of the reds, it makes for a wonderful melange of flavors and aromas — at once both familiar and exotic.
This Small Batch offering was first released in 2016, but proved to be so popular that it has since been released annually. However, that's no guarantee that it will be available next year. This 2020 Edition is limited to 8,000 numbered tins. They won't last long, so come grab 'em while they're still around!
Keep 'em lit,
