Since its genesis, C&D has emphasized quality over convenience 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 our C&D red Virginia Cavendish, you won't have to search for long to find a handcrafted, lifetime favorite.

Small Batch

Sun Bear


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.
