Clan Shaw - Scotsman
A no nonsense blend of pure tobaccos to give you full flavor. Brings back the tradition of pipe smoking. Bright Virginia, Oriental, Toasted Cavendish a hint of Latakia.

I don't love Latakia, but Scotsman has just a hint. To me, it is right on the money. There is also a light topping (vanilla and ?), and a light sweetener, making this a nice crossover smoke, having something for the aromatic fan as well as the Virginia, Oriental and Latakia fan. The Oriental only shows up in flashes, but you are glad of its contribution. The Virginia is of good quality, as one would expect from Clan Shaw, though it lacks the full high notes of McClellands. The Cavendish is not very noticeable, contributing by its non-bite character more than flavor.
