Cornell & Diehl created Carolina Red Flake as a tribute to the Old Belt, to the traditional harvesting and processing of Carolina tobacco straight from Carolina soil. Building on that tradition, the blending house now introduces Carolina Red Flake with Perique, elevating equal measures of stoved and unstoved red Virginias from 2018 with a generous portion of genuine, 18-year-old St. James Perique.
The resulting flavor balances pepper and spice with undertones of port wine, stone fruits, and citrus. The perfect extension to the massively popular Small Batch project, it's rich, deep, and complex. It's exactly how a Virginia/Perique flake should be.
