In the hinterlands just south of the Black Sea in Eastern Turkey, these prized Oriental tobaccos draw their sweet, nutty flavor from the rocky soil as they have done for 350 years. Enjoy the distinctive, mellow, pleasant character of the famed Samsun in this fine blend from McClelland.
I opened the Samsun from the Grand Oriental collection by McClellan. Surprisingly, it reminds me a lot of GLP new Sixpence. Opening it greats you with the fruity scent that 6p has. It isn't quite as strong in the fruity department but really has the ... Read Morespice note that orientals are noted for. It certainly isn't a straight Samsun like you might guess but has a mixture of brown and black flakes. The difference between it an the 6p is really the spicy background note and, of course, the form with 6p being a flake. Either makes an interesting and different taste experience that really can satisfy everyone from an aromatic smoker to a mild English follower without leaving out the VaPer fiends.
Burning it in a Sidney P. Ram - Algerian Briar, saddle bit, Billiard that is one of my favorite smoking tools. Read Less

This tobacco is a treat. It packs beautifully and draws easily. It has a rich, nutty flavor which is mild and a it has great aroma. It's my go-to blend by which I compare every other tobacco against.
