Toasted cavendish and burleys combine to serve as the base for this sweet, lively cherry flavored aromatic.

McClelland - Take 6.

Since McClelland have now gone I feel a bit hoggish. I managed to pop a few into my cellar over the past year! I wouldn't call this coarse cut but it's a little more rugged than a standard ribbon. Being loosely pouched, and having sat in my stash for about three months, there's no excess moisture to contend with.

The smoke isn't your usual cherry aromatic one. You know, sickly, sticky-sweet, and loaded with vanilla from the black Cavendish; like a cross between a cough sweet and a cup cake. No, the Cavendish shares the smoke, fairly, with the grainy tasting Burley. I get very little Virginia, the Va's definitely subordinate to the CavBur side of it. The cherries are a little stronger initially but die down very quickly, in less than a quarter bowl. They fade to the point where they need a search party to find them. It burns quite well, distributing a smoke that's free from bite.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: characterless.

Take 6? Like every pper I consider it a massive upset that McC' have disappeared but if all their blends tasted like this I wouldn't be bothered. Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Like the rest of McClelland’s aromatic tobacco blends this one was flavorless, boring and quite dull. If there was cherry in the blend I never noticed. Just another cavendish tobacco with little to no nicotine and frankly a waste of my pipe enjoyment. It wasn’t the government’s fault, like McClelland’s wants you to think, It was over producing to many blah blends and not concentrating on the good Virginia blends they had.
