This product was openly recognized by the manufacturer to be at least 20% contaminated by mold and sparked a total recall of all 2400 tins produced. I think the folk's at Laudisi, Cornell & Diehl, and SmokingPipes.com have showed incredible grace and integrity in dealing with the openly recognized mold problem. I have never heard of anyone having a problem with the customer service department at this company, really for any reason.

I originally missed out on the first run of C&D's Small Batch Carolina Red Flake... maybe that was lucky? I'll never know.

Will I be ordering from this run of production? Absolutely! I've already placed a sizable order for this flake.
I have full confidence in their ability to make a fine tobacco, and I will continue to support them.

I agree with Adam, C&D and Laudisi have handled the mold situation well, that is at least from a customer service angle.

I am passing on this one, especially after the recent Oak Alley thread which has me wondering if they're out of the woods yet.

Anyway, if either of you guys crack a tin and give it a whirl, do post your thoughts..

Very true Adam, the mold issues I had with 7 tins of Bijou was rectified immediately and have not had any mold issues since. But in the prior 2 years I've had other mold issues with another C&D blend. Also GLP, which is canned at the same place C&D is canned, so I've been told by a rep.  I too am concerned about the recent mold found in the 7/17 release of Oak Alley after I was ASSURED ( remember never ass/u/me anything )  back in 9/16 that the mold issue was resolved with the new anti fungal agent they're using. But " it's back " obviously! I trust Smokingpipes 110% and know they will stand behind whatever they sell but right now I too shall pass on any new releases of C&D. I have plenty of McCranie's Red Ribbon 🎀 which is simply marvelous and never an issue!! PLEASE POST IF ANYONE DECIDES TO OPEN A TIN OF THE NEW C&D RELEASE. Also remember IF your tin swells like a baseball within the first year of aging I would venture to say it's MOLD. Tins will swell after a few years of aging but NOT where you can literally roll them like a 🏀 ball 🏀. GOOD LUCK!!



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

I too will pass on this. I got some of the original release, and although the tin I had open was fine, after hearing of the horror stories I decided to return the rest. SP/C&D stood behind this and refunded me 100%.

So maybe it's a matter of once bitten/twice shy. Or perhaps, my red 'ginny needs are more than met by 5100, Red Ribbon, Xmas Cheer, and Red Paramour (Red Crack).

In any case I'll stand down on this one.


Cheers,

RR
