Anyone else ever try Cornell & Diehl Black Duck. It's a mixture of unsweetened brown and black cavendish, with orientals and latakia. To me it is very similar to Black House, but I think I prefer it over Black House. Tin aroma is that of campfire smoke. The latakia is very present in the smoke, but not over powering. Although it is unsweetened I get a slight sweetness out of it. Black Duck has a rich creamy smoke which leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Burns smooth, never a bite and smokes through to the bottom of the bowl on one light leaving a very fine dry white ash. Never see it discussed here and wanted to share my opinion. Definitely remaining in my rotation.

Just finished a tin and I agree with you about it's smoking qualities. I'll probably get it again but I have so many C&D tins started I need to work down the cellar before I order again. If you want something really interesting give Mississippi Mud a shot. Black as midnight and smooth as mud- no pun intended.
This blend actually sounds similar in blending components to Dunhills 965 which has a very unique and interesting flavor. I may have to get a tin of each and compare the two. Thanks for letting us know what you thought, I enjoy C&D latakia blends and might have to give this one a whirl.
I've almost bought it, but now I just might add it to the next order.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

+1-Totally love the Mississippi Mud.
Black Duck is going on the list.......somewhere on the list.....
I have smoked this blend many times and it is a outstanding blend.
I have a tin of Black Duck on the way. I am looking forward to trying it. Mississippi Mud was sold out, or I would have picked up a tin of that, as well. I also have tins of G.L. Pease's Meridian, and two from Sutliff Private Stock, their Berkshire and Balkan Luxury, on order. My favorite tobacco is H and H's Larry's Blend, but I enjoy trying other English/Balkan blends and aromatics as well.
One of the C&D blends i have yet to try. Might have to move this one up the list.
