Mild Mild Mild Very Pleasant

This is an Aromatic, kinda damp, all jet black cavendish tobacco. It is sweet and has no bite. The flavourig is something I cannot put my finger on. I wouldn't purchase this tobacco to smoke on it's own again in a million years...BUT, Mix this 1/4 lbs. with C&D's Pirate Kake 1/4 lbs. mix in 2 oz of Mcclelland's x-40 buley. Mix it all well and let it sit for a week. This makes a great English blend. Smooth, mellow, creamy, sMOkEy. I call it Davey Jones Locker.

Update: A year later and this is still wonderful!(Davy Jones, anyway)

Mild Very Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Pleasant

This is another McClelland aromatic I received in a sampler containing 11 blends. In appearance it was identical to #600 Special Black with somewhat similar burning characteristics.

I realize it's not completely fair to judge a tobacco based upon one ounce, every bowl I smoked, including in one case my first bowl of the day, about the only "taste" I experieced was sweet, if one wants to consider sweet to be a taste. I suppose the best descriptin of this blend is "flat" and would not be on my recommended list. One star
