McClelland Bulk MC 2000 Fragrant Matured Cake

A light, soft sweet cake tobacco that will appeal to those who have been smoking the various sweet, black tobaccos and aromatics because of its cooler, dryer smoking qualities and natural tobacco taste.

McClelland Bulk MC 2010 Classic Virginia

A blend of Eastern and Middle Belt lemon, orange and orange-red Virginias. Sweet, smooth & zesty. A light bodied, naturally sweet , satisfying Virginia.

McClelland Bulk MC 2015 Virginia Flake and Perique

Made from orange and red Virginias to which enough Perique has been added to create a refreshing smoke with a satisfying richness and depth of flavor. Well-balanced, dark matured cake.

McClelland Bulk MC 2020 Matured Cake

Aging of this blend of Lemon and Orange Virginias, Xanthi and Latakia in cakes develops an extra margin of smoothness and an uncommonly rich flavor that is refined, not heavy.

McClelland Bulk MC 2025 English Cavendish

A pleasant, rather light, broken, small-flake tobacco composed of lemon Brazilian and orange Middle Belt leaf seasoned with enough Xanthi to be satisfying throughout the day without becoming tiresome. Rounder than a straight Virginia.

McClelland Bulk MC 2030 No.1 Grade Balkan

A classic style Medium Balkan Mixture prepared from rich, stoved, Eastern and Middle Belt strip; Cyprian Latakia; Lemon Carolina; and the finest Greek Oriental tobacco. Exceptional in quality.

McClelland Bulk MC 2035 Dark Navy Flake

Heat seasoned and topped with a delightful nut and spice note, this is a full mixture, dark with Latakia. Rich and satisfying.

McClelland Bulk MC 2045 Oriental

Soft and sweet, rich in light Orientals and Carolina tobaccos with somewhat less Latakia that #2040. This is a great all day smoke.

McClelland Bulk MC 2050 Oriental Cavendish

An unusual mixture containing no Latakia, but still has a rich, round flavor. Liberal quantities of Orientals and a special Virginia Cavendish combine with Black Cavendish to make this a tobacco which should satisfy a great many smokers

McClelland Bulk MC 5105 Stoved Virginia

This tobacco is rich and sweet with a delightful naturally spicy aroma. Use for blending or as a straight smoke.

McClelland's fullest mixture. It is rich with Latakia. Contains Oriental leaf and stoved Virginia. An extremely pleasing blend.

McClelland Bulk MC 5115 Old World Classic Cake

A mysteriously provocative tobacco having a distinctive character with a universally appealing aroma both in the pouch and in the room. Soft, sweet, refined black cavendish.

The basic combination of orchard fruit (chiefly peach), nut and honey can be found in the desserts known to have delighted Presidents Jefferson and Madison. A delicate balance has been achieved here. There is the real tobacco taste of the fine Virginias and Burleys and Black Cavendish, but then there is the hint of sweetness and the faint aroma of some fine confection.

McClelland Bulk M58 Apricot Brandy (by the ounce)

This tobacco's extremely enticing aroma is derived from the skillful blending of five tropical flavors with brandy. Ribbon-cut Black Cavendish is seasoned with high-grade, flue-cured Virginia and Kentucky Burley tobaccos for a rich, generously sweet flavor.

I cannot recommend McC 5110 Full English.

It is supposed to be a bulk version of Frog Morton (or maybe FMOTT, I forget). It has a lot of latakia, but not a lot of zing or pazzazz.

I'm fond of Penzance; the 5110 doesn't seem to have the orientals I want. I find it flat.

If anyone wants to disagree, please do. I love the McClelland line of virginias, but this one doesn't impress me.

I have. I found it quite nice (so I ordered some more!) It dosen't have the sweetness of 2045 but it makes a good trade-off. It has far more cyprian latakia than 2045 but It dosen't taste all that much like an English blend (say, Westminster) to me. I found it very mild and tasty, smoking all the way to the bottom of the bowl and leaving a fluffy gray ash. It left my pipe smelling fresh, too. It creates lots of smoke and beautiful smoke rings and smells like a campfire.
What's not to like?
I hope my order shows up soon!

Penzance comes in 2 oz or 8 oz if you can find it. Esoterica tobaccos have been scarce lately.

This is an awesome list. I printed it off for future reference.
I'm going to have to go back to the info Del sent me some time back and see if I can find the notes to help me distinguish between a Balkan, and an English. I'm still even hazy 'still' over the differences between the Virginias and Burleys. Don't anyone waste the time reminding me, for I have the info, just have to go dig it out of my file.

At my age I seem to almost have come to the place of needing flash cards. :(

I think the citrus flavors fall more in the Virginias with Burleys being heavier with nicotine. I'm not into nicotine for a fix; so I prefer keeping a way of these strong Vitamin N blends.

Can anyone answer whether McClelland is noted for PRIMARILY being a, or leaning toward English blends or Balkins? If you had several corrals, into which 'horses' would you find the MOST of those with the 'brand' of Mcclelland on 'em. Virginia, Burley, Balkins, Lakatia, etc. ?

It is supposed to be a bulk version of Frog Morton (or maybe FMOTT, I forget). It has a lot of latakia, but not a lot of zing or pazzazz.

I'm fond of Penzance; the 5110 doesn't seem to have the orientals I want. I find it flat.

If anyone wants to disagree, please do. I love the McClelland line of virginias, but this one doesn't impress me.
5110 is my favorite. I also like Penzance, but 5110 is my fav.
I really like the 5110. It is a nice balanced english smoke. Not exciting like Del pointed out but very much enjoyable.
+1

I keep thinking about just breaking down and buying a bunch of it.
pipes and cigars sells it for $4 per oz and gets down to $3 per oz with higher volume. Not a bad deal at all when you think about it. FMOTT is approx $7.5 per oz in the 50gm tin.

I also noticed that on same site McC now has a Lane TK-6 knock off called TQ. I really really really want to give that a try.

Is there an equivalent in bulk for the tinned McClelland Blackwoods Flake? I'd like to buy a pound if there is.

Nope. Each McClelland blend is exclusively either tinned or bulk. The tinned blends do not occur in bulk packaging. Nor do the bulk blends occur in McClelland tin packaging. The packaging is almost part of the blends identity.

Blackwoods Flake has no similar blend in the bulk line.

I don't think that he expects the exact same blend but just something close enough for govt. work.

#5120 is pretty close, overall. It may not be a flake (though with a lot of flakey bits, that prolly should be broken up), but it should still satisfy the urge as a rough analogue, methinks.

My goodness. These discussions over such prolonged period of times are weird.

You can't have tried #5120 if you're saying that it's similar to Blackwoods. I understand the way it reads. But the flavours are quite different. I think they're not mistakable for each under any circumstances. I've played with them trying to get something even remotely close to three McClelland tinned blends, that feature red & black Va: Dominion Glory Maduro, St. James Woods, and Blackwoods. Not even in the same ball park. I think the bulk combos available & that one can make are not even in the same city!

I think those three tinned blends are extremely good. BTW I add about 8-10% Perique to the Dominican Glory Maduro (mine is now 10 yo by McCl tin stamp date) and it really makes that one shine.
