A Vinegar Aromatic?
October 17, 2018
Product: Sutliff 515 RC-1 Bulk
I am amazed at all of the posts saying that this tastes like 5100. It smells and tastes like cat urine. It does not have any quality at all like 5100. It leaves my mouth, throat, and sinuses coated in bitter vinegar. Good try, but squirting vineg... Read More

First, let me say that this Sutliff bulk tobacco came out of nowhere for me. I honestly couldn't tell you if it has been around a long time or is something new. What I am positive of is that I hadn't heard of it until McClelland announced they were c... Read More

This is hands down the closest tobacco I've tried to McClellands famed Red Cake. Sweet, tangy, mellow, delicious. It isn't quite the same thing, but it's awful close, just as good in my book. The price is also great.

Bought it as a blender but it is too good on its' own and have chosen it as a worthy stand alone blend. Hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with this fine offering.
Very smooth

I can't compare this to something that I have never had but I can say it is a mighty fine smoke. Smoke it nice a slow and it has a good smooth taste with a slight tangy to it.

I didn't know what to expect when I picked up a bag of this tobacco a few weeks back, being that I normally enjoy smoking Englishes, Balkans, and English aromatics. But I thought branching out and trying a straight matured red Virginia might be a goo... Read More

Not sure if tangy is appropriate.

Product: Sutliff 515 RC-1 Bulk
This blend is quite unusual. The tin note brinks on almost smelling aromatic. The very slight bite offers an odd sensation similar to the chill of menthol with a sweet undertone reminiscent of a dusty attic however not dry in the least. 10/10 would s... Read More
Tangy deliciousness

Product: Sutliff 515 RC-1 Bulk
I ended up trying sutliffs red virginia crumble kake prior to trying 515. I figured since I really enjoyed the kake, maybe the bulk, ribbon cut would be similar. Having tried them both now, I would say the kake is probably just 515 with some addition... Read More
Good Replacement for 5100 Red Cake!

Product: Sutliff 515 RC-1 Bulk
When I heard recently that Sutliff 515 RC-1 red Virginia blend was similar to McClelland's 5100 Red Cake (RIP), I had to try some.There were many McClelland blends I liked, but 5100, along with the Frog Mortons, were my favorites. I ordered 2 ounces ... Read More

An acquaintance gave me four ounces of this as a favour I did for him. Well, what a great pipe it makes for me. Smooth, enjoyable taste and has a fair depth also. A good all day smoke. Highly recommended.

Not my cup of tea. The leaf they use seems to be OK, but I did not enjoy the casing.
Unpleasant acidity
November 28, 2018
Product: Sutliff 515 RC-1 Bulk
People have compared this to McClelland’s 5100, also known as red cake, because of a supposed similar profile that combines a tangy flavor with sweetness. I have only smoked this once, but the taste of artificially produced acidity overpowered all th... Read More
