McClelland's TQ (Top Quality) may be the smoothest medium aromatic you'll ever try. Consistent from first puff to last, TQ offers a very pleasant vanilla/mild chocolate aroma with just a hint of coconut on the nose. Rich and creamy, this ribbon-cut blend will be an instant classic.

McClelland - T.Q. - Top Quality Gold & Toasted.

Virginia accounts for a higher proportion of the blend, and a lot of this is quite a fine ribbon. The smaller proportion of black Cavendish is a little coarser. The pouch smells sweetly cased. Moisture's good.

The coconut seems a bit louder for the initial quarter, and the vanilla and chocolate seem lightly added. I get a touch of an unlisted flavour reminiscent of cinnamon, with a spot of maple. The topping masks the tobaccos to a certain extent. The burn from it's good, being cool and consistent. A small fault with this is tongue bite: but, it's only a gentle nip!

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Top Quality': I quite enjoyed my initial bowl, but after my third I began to notice a slight bitterness in my mouth. This reduces the rating, two stars:

Somewhat recommended.
