This is wonderful smooth, sweet, red Virginia. Great stuff. But let me give you a tip. This is actually McClelland #5100 tinned by McClelland and branded as McCranies for them. Save yourself a bunch of money and get the 5100. I have smoked the McCranies 1996 Red Ribbon with a second following bowl of 5100 and the only difference is that the 18 year old McCrannies was a little smoother which you would expect from an aged tobacco.

Pipe Used: Various

Age When Smoked: 18 years

The red Virginia is richly tangy sweet, fruity with a touch of earth. Not much complexity, but that's the way red Va.s are. Burns well and even with a consistent smooth flavor, with just a little moisture at the finish. Yes, this is McClelland Red Cake, but the age on the tobacco enhances the experience.
