Where to Buy


The amaretto flavor of this delightfully aromatic Virginia-black cavendish blend fills the mouth with pleasure as does its liqueur counterpart. Why Amore? Because you will "love" the way this tobacco holds its flavor all the way down the bowl.

Mild Medium Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

McClelland - No. 820 Amaretto Amore.

There's a little more black Cavendish than Virginia and the Cav' has been cut far coarser than the shag-like Virginia. The pouch-note makes the alcohol easily accessible, albeit, I note more of the amaretto's sour alcohol than nuts.

For the initial part of a bowl the amaretto behaves in the same way: the alcoholic trait beats the nutty one from it. Luckily, once the burn's settled the alcohol decreases in strength. As well as the amaretto a sweetness comes to the fore after a quarter bowl: maybe caramel. The tobacco flavour isn't too heavy, the larger quantity of Virginia offsets some of the black Cav's stickiness. The burn couldn't be any cooler and is reliable from first light.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant but heavy.

The first few puffs only warrant two stars but once the burn's settled it sits comfortably at three stars:

No nicotine here, but did you really expect to find any ? I got a slight nutty, possibly almond flavor when snorking. Not overly moist, yet still required relighting

Very Mild Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

This is probably the most authentic amaretto flavored tobacco I have tried. It has a nice nutty flavor that has nice sweet overtones. The tobacco blends well and does not have any bitter burly taste. The tobacco is a bit moist as you would expect, and the goo in the bottom of the pipe is profound. Other than the typical aromatic complaints this tobacco is tolerable and somewhat recommended.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Mild Pleasant

Out of twelve McClelland Aromatics I tried in a sampler, this is one of four out of the dozen in the pack that I would revisit. If you are an aromatic fan, give this one a whirl. Probably a pleasant odor for the non-smokers as well.

Mild Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant

I was impressed with the moisture level and lack of bitterness. The Tobacco itself is very good and the only disappointment might be that is is very difficult to detect any ameretto flavor or aroma for the smoker.
