McClelland Oriental Mixtures

Post by plainview » Thu Oct 05, 2017 11:05 am

For those of you who have experienced all or perhaps a large sampling of the McClelland Oriental Mixtures (the green labels), which of the blends were the real stars of the lineup?

The No. 12 is a good example of an all-around English blend. The No. 1 is an excellent, lighter blend that I enjoy due to it's balance. Still, I think most people prefer the No. 8.

I remember enjoying a tin of Drama Reserve some time ago. Good stuff - subtle, complex, fragrant.

Those were good times. One never felt the need to raise one's voice. Used to be reading a thread and starting to get marginally annoyed, only to find by the bottom of the page that ol' Morley had already slain the common enemy.

I don't think it has. Do you think he would listen?
