Notes: Deep Elem was our very first blend. Sadly, Deep Elem was discontinued due to the closing of McClelland and the loss of their #805 Cavendish which was a unique and integral ingredient.

Terrapin Station pays homage to Deep Elem. While we could not match the fine cut of McClelland 805 nor the subtle sweet top note, by combining various grades and colors of cavendish we have come very close. Of course the proportions and the condimentals remain the same. Terrapin Station is a worthy homage to "Deep Elem", and an outstanding mild English blend in its own right. A bed of natural and lightly sweet cavendish is spiced generously with Latakia and just a bit of bright Virginia for a cool, mild flavorful and slightly sweet English blend...with a nod to Grateful Dead fans!

Mild to Medium Very Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant

The smoky, woody, earthy, musty sweet Cyprian Latakia is mostly a team player, though it takes a light lead over the other components. The very nutty, earthy, woody, lightly toasty, molasses sweet burley takes the second spot. The various cavendish cut tobaccos offer a touch of honey and some dark fruit, earth, and sugar in the third position. The tart and tangy citrusy, grassy Virginias just rise above being a condiment. I’m not certain about the toppings outside of it being sugary and vanilla-ish, but they do sublimate the tobaccos a mite. The strength is a couple of steps past the mild mark, while the taste level is in the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is a rung past the mild threshold. No chance of bite or harshness, and barely has any hints of a rough edge during the experience. An exceptionally well balanced smooth, creamy sweet, lightly savory aromatic American English, you’ll notice virtually every aspect offered in nearly every puff. Burns cool and clean and slightly slow with a very consistent flavor from top to bottom. It does need a few relights as it is a slow burner chiefly due to being a tad moist, though I saw no reason to dry it. Leaves just a little dampness at the bottom. Has a very pleasant aftertaste. Can easily be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.

Excellent. Great English but not overpowering in Latakia. Smokey, a little sweet, and ready to pack right out of the bag.

Would love to see this in a 'Krumble Flake' though too!...

A tasty, smoky sweet blend. Imagine eating a sweet Hawaiian roll with butter and honey, while catching a whiff from a Weber grill. Well behaved with no bite. If you like crossovers, this is a must try. Burns well with a bit of dry time and leaves a little moisture In the heel.
