An easy going, soft aromatic for the man who wants an all-day smoke that is not heavy. Orientals, Eastern Belt Carolina and a special black Cavendish provide plenty of satisfaction.

The Virginias are grassy with some citrus.The Eastern Carolina leaf is citrus and with a drop of honey. The liberal amount of black cavendish is vanilla, and often tones down the woody, smoky, lightly spice from the Oriental/Turkish. Burns fairly even and cool with few relights. An all day smoke if you're into this kind of blend, though I found it didn't wear so well during the day when repeated.

As another reviewed noted, this is McClelland #2050 Oriental Cavendish Mixture.

I recently received several of the McCranie brother's bulk blends to sample. I have tried a few in the past with pleasant results. Pamlico was not quite up to the standards I come to expect from McCranie's.

First of all, too many stems to pluck and chuck. Secondly, this blend tasted suspiciously like Dunhill's Early Morning Pipe without the Latakia. And, I'm not really a fan of EMP anyway.

True to form, this McCranie's proprietary blend lit easily and smoldered evenly with just the occasional tug. Not hot or bitey either. Just too Far Eastern in flavor to me despite the infrequent nuggets of sweetness provided by the cavendish.

This is McC's. #2050 Oriental Cavendish Mixture bulk. While browsing I noticed this had not been reviewed so here's tuppence FWIW. No Latakia in this one, just liberal amounts of Orientals and VA. Cavendish made from Eastern Belt Carolinas w/an underlying base of Black Cavendish. I know this as "Casablanca" and smoked it off and on for a while, but it just didn't seem to have a lot going for it. Smoked fairly clean but the taste was kinda bland. Wee bit o' sweetness here & there but got somewhat sharp as you smoke down the bowl. Could be OK for some as the bulk pricing is good, but given a choice I'd rather smoke #2045 or #2040 as they have varying amounts of Latakia, #2040 being the fullest. The Latakia helps take off the edge you find in #2050. These 3 mixtures are a "special group" created By McC., heat seasoned and topped w/a nut & spice note to supposedly give an appealing aroma. This one just doesn't work for me though. See other reviews listed under #2050.
