I love these containers and am glad they have come to smokingpipes.com! The large size is good for ~4 oz of bulk tobacco. The seal is excellent and the cradle in the lid for the humidity packet is very handy.
Wow¡¡¡ a nice surprise. In cold you can feel honey´s aroma, but soft not excessive... This flake, at burning gif you very good balance of sweetness and wath to talk about oriental's force. Definitely a very good cellar of C&D... of the best...
The tin note is superb. Dark chocolate and cherrys right on the nose! The smoke itself is probably one of the best I've had (keep in mind I am NOT usually an aro smoker) not one bit of younge bite, cool, smooth, extremely creamy. The tin note carries...

Maybe my tin was mislabeled. It is basically Inn of Court cigarette cut with No visible Latakia or black Cavendish. Harsh in the back of the throat as in unaged. I am a disappointed former Drucquers customer. BTW the tins are not Vacuum packed.The Or... Read Moreiginals were. Read Less
So much praise, so little rewardSeptember 27, 2016
Not really straight virginia as it has some aromatic quality, maple, molasses and vanilla probably which are good but nothing truly remarkable.
Even though the grassy and sour-sweet qualities from the virginias develop through the smoke there is al... Read Moreways a distant ghost from some vanilla and maple in the distance.
All in all the smoke is very mellow and lacks the strength from a pure virginia which is kind of dissapointing, after so much praise i expected something really interesting and perhaps poetic, it was not.
This is rather boring and uninteresting tobacco, but it is understandable why it has so much hype, precisely because it is a simpleton, uncompromising and rather bland tobacco that demands nothing from the smoker, so you may lay down not intending to find the intricacies of flavour or feeling the strength of a blend that has nothing of that.
I would recommend as smoke in between stronger and fragrant smokes. Standard. Read Less
Dark, dense flakes. Takes real effort to rub out. For those uninitiated with McClelland Virginias, the catsup aroma is of the homemade variety, not the more popular pungent Heinz or Hunts variety. .

When someone says "Virginia Flake", this is the flavor. Perfectly mature, cool, slow, savory and fulfilling. Wow. Read Less
but I recently felt that I should give latakia another try (I swore off of it a while back and haven't had the nose for it till recently). I was a little apprehensive of the aroma when I received this in the mail as I could smell the bbq smokey smell... Read More already but I could also pick up hints of sweetness that didn't force me to put it down. I loaded up my pipe and fired it up. It packed great, and lit well. I was surprised at how smooth and cool the smoke was. The presence of latakia wasn't overwhelming for me and there was enough sweetness to keep me interested. I found myself really puffing away at this and before I knew it I finished my bowl. I've had about 3 or so bowls and it's been consistent each smoke. Read Less
This blend of mainly cube cut Burley and red Virginia and a splash of Perique makes for a great all day smoke. I smoked this blend fairly hot and NO tongue bite. Nice blend of tobacco's created this wonderful tasting smoke. I will be ordering more!!!... Read MoreRead Less
This is an excellent Burley and will age well for a number of years. But very smokable fresh. This blend has a very " nutty " flavor and smokes extremely cool. If you tend to smoke a hot pipe this blend will NOT bite your tongue. I smoked i... Read Moret like a freight train and still NO bite! If your looking for that Burley with a creamy nutty flavor I highly recommend trying this blend. I always have some on hand. Read Less
