McClelland Beacon Extra. Beacon with extra Perique. Good stuff.

Boy, that's a good one. I love it on summer mornings with a good cup of English style tea with milk.

Cornell & Diehl 2015 Christmas Blend - Golden Days of Yore, my prize from JimVH for naming the kayak (thanks Jim!).
Opened the tin this afternoon and filled a small jar to take up to school, left a little in the tin to smoke at home.

It is listed as an aromatic, but the tin note was not overpowering. Mostly, it smelled to my nose like a complex Virginia blend with a hint of cinnamon and a touch of cloves (very Christmasy). But as you'll see in the video below, the topping includes more flavors than those two, and the tobaccos used, as listed by C&D, include "a festive mix of red and bright Virginias, black Cavendish, dark-fired Kentucky, and Katerini... and more." Sounds very interesting.

It's had two years to "marry" in the tin. I'm excited about giving it a try tomorrow.

Here's a video showing how they made the "sauce":

And a modified Chistmas carol from C&D about the dillema of choosing to smoke it right away, or letting it mature;:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Give your pipe a light.
From now on your troubles
Will be out of sight.

Virginias from the olden days
Make our Golden Days of Yore:
A fragrant blend with black Cavendish
Kentucky, Katerini, and more.

Through the years they’ll all marry together
If restraint allows.
Hang a shining tin upon the highest bow,
Or have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

I guess I might try a small bowl full of that, but I would gravitate back to McClelland "ketchup."

What can I say? I just love what McClelland does with Virginia. Especially their Virginia-Periques. Recently I have come to relish their Beacon Extra VaPer. Perfect with an early evening libation.
