McClelland has been asked to provide this blend several times over the years for the slow-smoking contest held by pipe clubs. In every instance, contestants have commented on the good taste, pleasant light-up and easy draw. It's a winning blend, even for those who didn't come in first (or is it last?). Why wait for a contest to enjoy this exceptional pipe tobacco blend of matured and stoved Virginias with a very little touch of Latakia. It was developed for the long-distance pipe smoker, but is enjoyable even in a sprint.
