Tin aroma has the signature McClelland whatever you call it plus something more. A first for me in the CC line. To me it smells of Clove or a "holiday" aroma. Quite nice. I dried a bowl overnight. The Broken flake was rubbed out a little more and loaded into a viking bulldog. Burn was fine aroma of cloves still there as well as in the after taste for me. Quite nice. Probally the best so far for the line but i have only tasted vintages from 1998 on up to current.It will bite if pushed but with minimal care it stays nice. I have 2 tins in the celler and may add a few more of this year as it should age nicely. No nicotene Wallops either.

I love this blend. Be forewarned as this is my first Tinned and especially non-aromatic tobacco.

I love this. Tin aroma is a nice tobacco and fruity smell that entices you from the start. The tobacco is pressed flakes that break easily to be packed. I don't know how or what "rubbing" out is so I just broke apart the flakes and packed it accordingly. It definitely arrives moist, too moist, so I let each bowl full of broken flakes to dry out for 2-4 hours. You need to do this less as the days go by. The flavor is exactly what I want in a pipe tobacco. An honest true all day smoke. The spicy virginias are superb. I really enjoy smoking this and hope to order one more tin before Christmas.
