A rich, fragrant blend of Special Black and the highest grades of Virginias and Carolinas, seasoned with a hint of Oriental and Burley-Virginia Cake Cavendish. Topped with a delicate honey-nut aroma that reminds us of Greek Baklava.

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

The lightly sugary, toasty black cavendish is a major player. The various Virginias and Carolinas offer some grass and citrus, and a little earth, bread and dark fruit in strong support roles. The nutty, earthy burley, and woody, dry, slightly spicy Oriental are background players with the burley being the more obvious of the two. I hardly notice the Oriental. The honey nut topping mildly tones down the tobaccos, and doesn’t have a lot of depth. Doesn’t taste much like baklava. The taste almost reaches the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is very mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with moderately sweet, very smooth flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a short lived, pleasant after taste. An all day, undemanding work and play smoke. Two and a half stars.

I get this one, I really do. I enjoy aromatics and pressed virginia flakes also. I guess I'm on an aromatic kick again. This blend of reds black and brights is towards the flat side but never really gets that flat. Sipped slowly I taste the tobacco and the sweet nutty Baklava flavouring. Lights easy, burns well and the room note is not sickly sweet but like warm honey roated pecans and walnuts. I like this and everytime I try a McClelland blend I am very impressed by their work.

McClelland - No. 700 Baklava.

As you can see from the picture, it isn't too coarse a broken flake. Apart from a few pieces it's pretty much a straight ribbon. Black Cavendish accounts for the majority. Moisture's good.

Sweet nuts: this is how the smoke tastes. There's a fair amount of added flavouring so this leads the smoke. Any Oriental flavour avoids me, but I get a notable Burley taste. Other than that, the smoke's mainly comprised of Cavendish and Virginia flavours: the Virginia flavour's sort of bready/doughy. The burn from it's good, being cool, even, and reliable.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Baklava? Three stars:
