McClelland Deep Hollow

Far into the woods, away from the urban cacophony, is where the light, fragrant blend of rich red stoved Virginias is designed to transport the smoker. Relax and enjoy the moment.
Notes: The name Deep Hollow comes from the works of JRR Tolkien. Deephallow (Deep Hollow): A village on the Shire's eastern border, built on the banks of the River Brandywine. Immediately across the river was Haysend, the southernmost point of Buckland, while just to the south of Deephallow, the River Shirebourn flowed into the Brandywine.

Marketers take note: I decided to buy this tobacco by U.S. company McClelland merely because I liked the name. In any event, this is your average looking dark brown, ready-rubbed tobacco consisting of Virginias. A whiff of the can told me that Trevor Talbert's disdain of McClelland blends held true for this one: it smells like tomato soup and is overly moist.

Since I rather like a good Tomato Soup Cake, I chose not to be daunted by its decidedly unpleasant tin aroma. I hiked off into the woods and settled myself into a dark pine grove to light up (and promptly lost the path...stupid trees). Lit, it had a sweet flavour common to Virginia blends and... and... well, whether it was imagined or not, I also thought I could sense a lingering effect of the tomato-tin aroma.

All in all, it burned decently, though the last quarter was far too wet to be smoked?perhaps letting it dry out will help. Although this isn't a bad blend, it's also not particularly great either.
