I like this one. Has some really nice flavors. The Burley is nutty with a touch of earth. The Virginia is sweet with a touch of citrus. The topping, I think, has three components. Cocoa, Pecan and Hazelnut. As long as you don't push it too hard it burns cool and maintains it's flavor. Push it and you create a furnace with no flavor. Properly smoked this is a tasty, pleasant, relaxing smoke.

Mild in body. Mild to medium in flavor. Needs a little drying time.

Exactly what it says it is. I detect hazelnut flavoring.

I bought this before as a house blend at a now defunct pipe shop years ago and have been searching for it ever since.

I love the flavor and the room note is nice. As another reviewer stated-don’t push this one. Sip and be rewarded.

I smoke aromatics, English and lots of plain burley. Of all of them, this is the only one my wife approves of.

This is another big time winner from McClellend. The open was beautiful Virginias and some burly mixed in but Not a large amount. Lights super easy and required no relights. I tried to smoke this like it was an aromatic and it really paid off for me. The wonderful taste of nuts is there in spades as well as some sweet hay,sweet butter and hints of earth tones. Just a really nice taste and flavor throughout the entire bowl. Smoke this blend slow keep the bowl fairly cool and you get one damn good smoke. Room note is pretty mild with no specific aroma. One thing you will notice is the volume of smoke is very light. If your getting clouds of thick smoke your over doing it and will ruin the experience. I sincerely enjoyed this blend and can't wait to try it again. I also plan to add a small amount of Latakia to get just a hint of smoky flavor as well. To me this is a true four star smoke. I find it interesting that some folks are calling this an aromatic when in fact it is not an aromatic at all. There are no added flavorings other than what you get through the tobacco. It is amazing the amount of flavor you get.

The burleys are nutty with a little molasses, earth, and a little chocolate, and plays a little higher than the grassy, citrusy Virginia. The nut toppings are sweet, maybe a little sugary. Has very little nicotine. Won't bite. Needs some dry time, and you'll need to smoke it a little slowly or it may get slightly harsh at the finish. Has a fairly consistent flavor. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. The after taste is decent. It's an uncomplicated all day work and play smoke.

TRIBUTE TO (Just Plain Nut) one of McClellands finest tobacco blends for a few reasons, I grieve in a way to write this review and makes me very sad to know that one of the greatest pipe tobacco companies is no more, it hurts even more to know why they are no more but that is another topic not a review, all I gotta say to that is "Stand For Your Tobacco Smoking Rights" and absolutely support your American tobacco farmers especially the few left that grow the BEST Virginia's in the WHOLE world!!! Tobacco built this country it is a foundation to our heritage and history, it is a culture being destroyed by socialist progressive quacks that aim to urinate on our constitution, for that I dedicate this review to McClelland and my fellow pipe smokers. Mcclelland Just Plain Nut is a simple review but nothing simple about this wonderful pipe tobacco indeed, the aging and fermentation process was one of a kind by Mcclelland, as with many of there blends the had a super special steaming and pressure technique that they guarded well and no other company did it quite like McClelland. Just Plain Nut is a burley base pipe tobacco blend with a fair amount of Virginia added to round it out. The brown burley is aged beautifully and the Virginia gracefully added with absolutely no topping whatsoever what you taste when you smoke this unique blend is 100% pure tobacco, its amazing what burley can produce in taste and when the right amount of Virginia is added you get Just Plain Nut. This is my all time favorite pipe tobacco and what I have left will be cherished and smoked very slowly, this blend is smooth and nutty and when smoked slow it will not bite but give you a earthy wonderful mild sweet flavor of the best burley releasing its natural flavors and the Virginia is amazing how it plays the role of creating a well rounded taste that you can taste when smoking this fine blend. Just Plain Nut taste best when smoked slow and I mean slow its not meant to be smoked in a hurry but rather to be contemplated in deep thought to process the one of a kind taste it gives off and the velvet texture the smoke leaves in your mouth and WHY IS IT SO NUTTY? and THERE IS NO TOPPING? because high quality burley at its finest produces this ultra nutty taste that comes off like its been flavored (topped) but it is not flavored or topped at all, that's what makes this so unique and now so very rare, I honestly can't say there are to many burley blends out there that can deliver a nutty taste like this blend, I mean this is it it!!! The last of its kind as far as a burley this unique and one of a kind, yes of course there are many awesome burley pipe tobaccos out there but Just Plain Nut earned its title. If you can find it still and good luck with that one buy it all lol!!! This blend ages like a champ and will only get better over the years when stored correctly because of the fact it is pure tobacco with NO ADDITIVES. This was one of the purist tobaccos I loved so very much and I know those who smoke this understand what I am saying, I highly recommend this and if you have access buy it up last call last chance, you will never smoke anything like this ever again because Mcclelland was one of a kind and were the true masters of Virginia's and the magic makers of burley. Five star pipe tobacco blend one of the finest burley, Mcclelland you will be missed dearly, thanks for reading my review, God bless all you fellow pipe smokers and God bless America and God bless our tobacco farmers and business's keep the faith my friends.

McClelland - No. 110 Just Plain Nut.

The pouch contains a very well broken flake: ribbons. I can detect a slightly nutty aroma from the pouch, and the water content couldn't be any better.

No. 110 takes to the flame easily and burns well; providing it's been loaded a little looser than usual. I enjoy the flavour quite a lot: I don't get any citrus virginia notes, I only identify nuts: nuts, from both the Burley, and an addition. This appurtenance makes the smoke incredibly rustic tasting. It seems nuttier whilst steadying the burn, after that it calms a touch. I find the actual build of the smoke quite thin: it's not like puffing fresh air, but it's a bit thinner than a lot.

The nicotine's pretty mild, and due to the thickness of the smoke the room-note's very pleasant.

Three stars are very applicable. It falls a little short of four, but is loads better than two.

i found this to be a very pleasant smoke with a good aroma and a fair tobacco flavor. It is a good clean burn all the way through the bowl and ended without wet dottle to clean out of the pipe.

This blend is very light. If you're looking for any nicotine, keep looking. But if you're looking for something light, pleasant, and with a great room note - look no further.

The tin note is very nice. No chemical-esque smells, nothing overtaking. It's a lightly nutty scent, possibly a bit of vanilla.

It burns well, and as long as it's packed correctly should burn all the way down with ease. The cut is a fine ribbon and packs easily.

Moisture in my batch was good, possibly a tad moist but still smoked very well. A great all-day smoke!

So mild you taste nothing but Air, or the ghost flavor that's left from your last smoke. It leaves you wanting to fill your pipe again, but with something that has some taste to it.

It's an ok blend. It is a nice ribbon cut, and smells great in the jar. Plain nut packs easily, and it smokes down nicely to about the lower 1/3. This blend has a nice almondish nut flavor it, just on the top of each puff. It left more wetness in the bottom than I care for though, and I smoke other aromatics.

Top notch looking tobacco though, and I will enjoy the rest of the 2 ounces I purchased awhile back. I might pick up more, but only if I go back to McCranies. I won't die if I don't have this blend, its pleasant but nothing more.

This blend smells to me more of a chocolate. It came to me as a sample with justg #110 and McClelland and I thought it was their chocolate blend. It smells good enough to eat in the pouch, a mottled mixture of alight and dark tobaccos. It loaded very easily into my pipe and was not at all too sticky though was moist. Upon lighting it, it had a light chocolate flavor and a very burley taste and aroma. As I smoked it, the hazelnut note did come out but not really strong. The VA twang was in the background and it seemed a little biting without actually doing so. It stayed lit very well and burned down to a grey ash and little dottle and moisture in the bottom of my pipe. It never felt that this was a breakthrough blend and I will finsih the pouch as it's a pleasant smoke, but is a little blah to me so won't buy any more. It is a nice burley smoke and great in a cobb.

This tobacco has a great tin note. I think it maybe the best around. The room note is also wonderful, but the taste does not deliver on its initial impression, or not at first. At the top of the bowl it is a fairly mild aromatic, and it gets richer as the bowl progresses. It is kind of like a rich pie, the further you get toward the end the more concentrated the taste. I do not smoke this tobacco alone, but do find it nice to mix with burly blends. It just seems to give them some body. It has all the aromatic "issues" that you expect, but is absolutely worth putting up with.

This is a wonderful blend. The pre-light armoa smells like a peanut butter cup. A lot of aromatics I've smoked smelled great however didn't quite taste as good as they smelled but not this one. The flavour doesn't come out very strong at first but it's thick room odor aids the development of the flavour. This has become one of my favorites as a dessert pipe after a fine meal.

It works REALLY well if you enjoy it with a rich coffee. The flavours just mix.

Burley to tobacco blending is like tofu to Chinese cooking. Both have a creamy bland quality without having anything to do with dairy, and both are used in a variety of recipes because they have the reputation of taking (or enhancing) the taste of the other ingredients in the mix. A taster familiar with them can usually detect their presence, but sometimes both tofu and burley can disguise themselves so clandestinely as to fool even the most discerning palate.

If for no other reasons but their relative simplicity, and their chameleon like adaptability to transform themselves, and what they touch, both tofu and burley are noble, if somewhat bland, human accomplishments. Most people either love them or hate them. I love burley?or rather I love the idea of burley just as I love the idea of tofu--even if man can not live on burley (or tofu) alone.

If you have ever wondered why anyone would take good tobacco and top it with the essence of fruit, vanilla, or chocolate, the blandness of burley is the reason why. Like tofu it screams to take on, even steal, the identity of something else. Which brings us to McClelland?s Bulk 110 blend. Sure it?s topped, even cased?but who cares?

This blend may not be too complex but if you want to remember the fireplace where as a child you hung your Christmas stockings, or grandpa?s pipe, or the comforts of the doctor who prescribed you your first cough syrup (preferably with Codeine), or even the inflexible ways of the math teacher who kicked you out of class for not paying attention, then you owe it to yourself to try McClelland 110. You should try this tobacco even if you are not feeling nostalgic because it will explain why topping a blend can be a very legitimate undertaking. Order a double serving of Egg Foo Young, then pack your pipe, kickback, and enjoy this blend.

This is another one of my favorite aromatic tobaccos to smoke.

The cut is a ribbon cut Burley with Virginia cased in a nutty flavor, pack firmly but with a slight spring. The blend has the touch of a silky soft tobacco and smokes quite easily and very mild. This is definately an all day tobacco with no tongue bite and a gentle taste. I smoke this is a Bjarne Giant Brandy Glass that will hold about 1.5 ounces of tobacco, this I need both hands to hold as the pipe itself weighs 158g.

I find Nut to be very similar to McClelland?s Mellow Mack if not one in the same.
