McConnell does a superb job in crafting this blend. For starters, the tin note is refreshing; pure tobacco. I also like the feel of it in the hand; it crumbles nicely, and isn't too moist. I like burley mixed in with other leaf, and feel the geograph... Read More
Not for me

I love Vapers and those that contain burley as well. This tobacco violates my palate and leaves my mouth feeling like I have eaten a whole raw pineapple for some reason. I am pretty sure it has some kind of nasty topping on it, it reminds me of batte... Read More

A very good straight up tobacco Flavor, Sweet virginia’s and mild Perique! I have had this and a tin of the “Scottish Flake” and if I had to choose between the two I would say I enjoyed this one more. More sweetness that I enjoy and slight spice fro... Read More
Smooth Sweet and a Bit Tangy with a bit of Spice.

Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
Not bad. The invert sugar sweetens this artificially but is tolerable for me; the plummy tanginess of the perique is there but lacks the black pepper spice; the Kentucky is supportive and lends only a slight nuance of spicy, smoky oak on the back en... Read More

Has quickly jumped ahead in my rotation when I am looking for a VaPer. Yes, there is burley, but its subtle enough where I do not really notice it
A day in the Woods.

I am quite taken by this blend. Rich and earthy, it has a "woodsy" quality to to, like being out and about on an early fall day. To my taste, the burley predominates, and it burns to a clean ash leaving my pipes virtually dry. However, this has a bit... Read More

If had to pick one tobacco that I thought tasted like autumn this would be it. Mellow, malty, and yes, as another has said "sweet feed" aroma. (Sweet feed is Horse feed that's made of grain and molasses, though this blend contains no molasses).This ... Read More
Not as good as the flake

I've smoked and loved the flake version of this, this rubbed version is good but not as good as the flake.
Amazing

Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
This is the perfect blend for me, Kentucky and perique combine for a tangy, slightly woody and sweet blend that burns cool, packs well, and tastes great in my M.M. cobs

The first several times I smoked this, I was not crazy about it. But it has grown on me and now I quite enjoy it. Burns cool, no bite, and stays lit even though it comes a bit wet in the tin. Good, flavorful anytime tobacco with just enough nuance to... Read More
very very good

Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
The Virginias here are very smooth, and not as quite as sugary as the tin note would suggest. While I couldn't initially smell the Kentucky, I can definitely taste it. There is a subtle Kentucky tang that interplays fantastically with the Virginias. ... Read More

The tin note is full-blast fruitcake, VA forward, Perique noticeable, and clearly a goodly amount of Orient in there (the back label says Carolina, though). The KY is seriously outvoted in the scent, but it will come into play during the smoke. The ... Read More

Great blend in the right pipe

Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
I really love this born even though I can't smoke it all day as my palate is a little sensitive to smoked Kentucky tobaccos. I also find that this blend is sensitive to how you pack it in your pipe. If too tight the sourness of the Kentucky burley re... Read More

Fried Chicken. Plums. Sweet Feed. Not things that one would think go together beautifully. But this 'n' more is what you'll get from this stunner. Definitely dry this guy down a bit, rub it out gently. I've tried literally hundreds of Va and Va/Per b... Read More
Scottish Cake after 1 yr. in the tin
July 19, 2015
Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
Smooth, sweet and plummy, with no trace of topping or flavoring. Slow burning, yet producing a large volume of luscious smoke. The Kentucky leaf takes it out of the VaPer genre, but Vaper aficionados simply must try this.
An Okay VaPer

Product: McConnell Scottish Cake 50g
To me this is just a middle of the road VaPer. Not much to write home about. It's worth trying a tin, but it's not one I'll be keeping on hand. It packs well and burns well. You get some sweetness from the Virginias and a bit of peppery flavor from t... Read More
