A combination of tangy, sweet Virginias and satiny black cavendish is a pretty typical base for a pleasant aromatic, but McClelland takes it to a whole new dimension by the inclusion of some fragrant Orientals before finishing the package with a warm and smooth dose of vanilla and chocolate. You, and anyone in the area, are in for a real treat with this one!

McClelland - McTruffle.

Black Cavendish accounts for far more of the blend than Virginia and Oriental, it looks about a 75-25% split. The mixture's prominently coarse ribbons.

Like in the appearance the black Cav' gives a lot more flavour than the Virginia and Oriental. With the flavourings I get the chocolate and vanilla but also something else, something alcoholic: a touch of rum. This causes the flavour to resemble Christmas cake; similar to C+D King Cake. McTruffle burns cool, without bite.

Nicotine: a jot above mild. Room-note: not great.

McTruffle? Three stars:
