C&D Sam's Blend from my Secret Santa
And? This is definitely one of my favorite tobaccos. Solidly in the #2 spot all time for me, so I'm always curious what other's think since it's not a very common or talked about tobacco. (And I repeat, I am not your SS, even though those are my initials.)

There's a funny story how I came to find this tobacco, which I'll save for when we finally meet.
Sam's Blend

I was surprised to see how black the tobacco is. I feels moist, but it lit easily. Lots and lots of smoke...I smoke mostly in the evening on the patio in the moonlight, so I enjoy a tobacco that gives plenty of visible smoke...the problem normally is that along with lots of smoke you get an ashy taste. NOT with Sam's blend. It is a mild English and no ashyness. You need to sit and contemplate this one, its tastes are subtle and to delv into them, you need to be in tune with the the peace of a quiet smoke. It would also make a great fishing/working in the yard/bird hunting... smoke...it smoked easy and well and stayed lit through the bowl...no muss no fuss. A good find in the tobacco world.

Thanks again Sneaky Secret Santa.

A 50 gram tin of McClelland - Pebblecut (Ashton Revival). Wonderful stuff and with hardly any of the McVinegar tin note.

Oriental/Turkish, Perique, Virginia

I have noticed in the last year that Sam's Blend has gone away in the 8 oz. tins. Worried this would become a has-been blend for C&D as they experiment and keep coming out with more and more new tobaccos, I sent them an email to voice my concerns. The master blender sent me a personal email reply to ensure me Sam's Blend would remain on their production list but it wasn't a strong enough seller to warrant the 8 oz. size anymore. Makes me sad I never snatched one up while I had the chance.
