An inspired blend of the finest North Carolina grown Red Virginias, Carolina Red Flake is Cornell & Diehl’s tribute to the historic “Old Belt” growing region. Taken straight from fertile Carolina soil, these exquisite, top-tiered Virginias are all grown, threshed, blended, lovingly pressed and carefully sliced right in the heart of old tobacco country. Combining a hay-like grassiness with subtly sweet, tangy notes, it’s a Virginia purist’s delight with a complex flavor: rich, deep, and earthy with subtle hints of dried fruits and citrus.
The 2022 edition of Carolina Red Flake features matured TA-20 Red-Orange Tips (the same grade as in 2021’s Carolina Red Flake with Perique), boasting a substantial natural sugar content of 13.53%, and all sourced from a single family farm in North Carolina. Carolina Red Flake is quite simply the finest Virginia flake that Cornell and Diehl has ever produced.
