McClelland - McTruffle.
Black Cavendish accounts for far more of the blend than Virginia and Oriental, it looks about a 75-25% split. The mixture's prominently coarse ribbons.
Like in the appearance the black Cav' gives a lot more flavour than the Virginia and Oriental. With the flavourings I get the chocolate and vanilla but also something else, something alcoholic: a touch of rum. This causes the flavour to resemble Christmas cake; similar to C+D King Cake. McTruffle burns cool, without bite.
Nicotine: a jot above mild. Room-note: not great.
McTruffle? Three stars:
