I have A LOT of those two in my cellar, for you never know whether or not McClelland for whatever reason might stop making them. I 1st found out about these two from our Canadian friend, Rusty.

G.L.P. Key Largo, this evening.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Who'd-a thunk tobacco could ever taste so good, huh? If you like Virginia Perique, McCl Beacon Extra is mighty good. More Perique than the regular Beacon, yet somehow very soft and smooth.

Well, Rusty did. And try and remember that there are more that you've yet to discover.

A 12+ yo tin of Edgeworth Sliced. It has held up quite well.

I'm one that is hesitant of trying new restaurants. Ones I know are good is enough for me. Same goes for pipe tobacco.

And by the way, thanks again for telling me about Aurora,.. and the Beacon. Love 'em.

My last was Cabbies Mixture. Dumb name. Grand 'baccy. Even Skip would say it's grand 'baccy.

Popped a tin of Stanwell Vanilla this afternoon. First time smoking this one.

Opened a 100g tin of McClelland St. James Woods and a 50g tin of their Tudor Castle a week ago and have been enjoying them.
