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:
