McClelland - Craftsbury: Frog Morton on the Bayou 100g
Great Mild English
I was looking for a mild English blend that wouldn't knock me out with a Lat bomb and now I have found it in a Frog. FMOTB is a smooth, easy and relaxing smoke. I picked up a few other of the Frogs offerings and can't wait to try them. I'll be buying more larger tins next time.
Peterson - University Flake 50g
I picked this up the other day due to the fact that so many people seem to like it. It was a good call. I'm not a heavy or all day smoker. Most of the time it's with a cup of coffee on the back patio in the morning or at social events in the evening. So I tend to look for something fairly low in vitamin N and not a Lat bomb. This flake seems to fit the bill well. Just for information sake I tend to prefer to rub out my flakes as opposed to the fold and stuff method. I allowed the flake to dry for about twenty minuets then loosely rubbed it out leaving it fairly long strands. I found it to have a light scent of raspberries in a very present and not overpowering way. The tobacco smoked and packed nicely. I believe that his could be an easy all day smoke if I were that type of person. The taste was mild to medium in strength and had a pleasant aroma. I definitely plan on purchasing more for cellaring and regular use. If you are a flake fan or just curious you definitely need to give this one a try.

Black Beard Would Be Pleased.
Not a bad aro. Great room note. You can pick up on what smells like toasted coconut. Smells great in the pack and smokes nice. Do let the tobacco sit out for about 20-30 mins before hand or it's a pain to keep lit. I plan on buying more.

#1 On My List Right Now
Right now this is my favorite go to tobacco. Love this stuff. A great room note, little bit of sweetness and a solid backbone. The tin note is of very ripe dark fruit like raisin, plum or dark dried cherries.
McClelland - Special: Christmas Cheer 2013 100g
Don't Just Buy One.
This is the first Christmas Cheer or McClelland product I have tried. I was a little concerned when the tin note smelled like ketchup, but don't let that fool you. This is a great smoke. Great room note, cool to smoke and just a little sweetness to it. I plan on getting more to smoke and cellar. Next year I won't buy just one can.
