Taking inspiration from the popular, Lovecraftian The Old Ones series, Cornell & Diehl's Small Batch: From Beyond is a rich, potent, and incredibly complex English mixture that captures Head Blender Jeremy Reeves' impression of a wonderfully aged, 1990s-era tin of Dunhill Nightcap. Balancing full flavor with robust strength, it's handcrafted using a host of rare tobacco varietals: Eastern NC Red Virginias (2017), Bright Canadian Virginias (2017), Turkish Izmir (2018), Greek Basma (2019), Turkish Latakia, and genuine St. James Perique. The flavor is dark, rich, and subtly sweet with an smoky, incense-like quality evocative of shadows in the woods.

Strength i STRENGTH: the overall strength of the tobacco. This includes the strength of its taste and its nicotine content.
Flavoring i FLAVORING: primarily for aromatic blends, this refers to the "topping" but sometimes also to the "casing" added to the tobacco. This will account for detectable flavors like cherry or chocolate.
Taste i TASTE: although a wholly subjective measure, it is one of the most important in that it measures how tasty smokers find the blend. Like food, some dishes are tastier than others.
Room Note i ROOM NOTE: a measure of the ambient scent/smell a blend puts out for those around the smoker. Basically, how strong does it smell, and how pleasant do those around you find that smell. The stronger, generally the less pleasant. You can also call this the "wife rating."
