Cornell & Diehl Sun Bear Small Batch
A blend of fine red and bright Virginias balanced by Basma leaf from 2014 and Izmir Orientals from 2013, Sun Bear commends itself with subtle notes of South Carolina garden-grown honey from the personal beehives of Jeremy Reeves, head blender of Cornell & Diehl.
The natural honey complements the subtle drizzling of silver tequila and Elderflower for a natural, refined tasting tobacco with an underlying, swashbuckling boldness. Sun Bear is a unique experience for the connoisseur who appreciates a dance of flavor components dominated by quality Virginias.
Pipe Nook Notes
This small batch Virginia/Oriental blend is fantastic! I would consider it lightly aromatic, but it is technically still non-aromatic since the subtle flavors are applied as light casing during production, rather than a topping at the end of the process. A delightfully elegant blend! Sun Bear was first introduced to the Small Batch series in 2019, and fans have been clamoring for it again ever since. This 2020 Edition is limited to 8,000 serially-numbered tins.
