What a beautiful sight
Yes, indeed. It is without question McClelland's Mike McNeil's crowning achievement. From the first touch of the match all the way to snow white ash.

Oh good stuff. Haven’t had any since it was introduced at Chicago a few years ago, but I remember it being really good.

I have only had three pipefulls but so far it has been a pleasant. I think though I was looking for more DFK to appear.

McClelland Kansas City Pipe Club Beacon Extra Virginia Perique Flake. Really tasty stuff and I still have many tins. Back in the good old days after I had smoked one tin I ordered 30 more from P&Cs, and with a 20% off sale. That was a real win-win.

Just cracked some 2008 Tudor Castle. It was from Rusty's cellar. Happy Victoria Day Weekend, everyone. God save the Queen!

Opened two tins in the past couple days. McClelland Aurora, which I still, thank God, have plenty of, and also a tin of McClelland Tudor Castle, which I noticed (sadly) leaves me only 6 more tins. But most of them are from 2015, so I'll have some beautifully aged TC to enjoy

My Tudor Castle leaves are leaving me :cry:

Opened a fresh pouch of Amphora Burley Blend this morning - so far, this stuff is fantastic.

I still have a lot of McClelland Beacon Extra but only 4 tins of regular Beacon, so I cracked a tin of Beacon the other day and rubbed out the contents to help stop the fermentation process....

A 2016 tin of Dunhill Flake. The rectangular tin. Some damn good pure Virginia Flake tobacco. Nothing like it that I have found. Presently have the entire tin all rubbed out and sitting on a plate for about 20 minutes, to reintroduce new oxygen.

I know right. I just had a sample of this and loved it, of course I would find a Dunhill I liked after they I became unobtainable. Still, I have one tin hid away in my little cellar. :bacon: :cheese: :chili:

If you like it, try Capstan Flake (blue tin). Strait VA flake, I don’t remember there being any noticeable difference between the two, including the packaging. I’d be surprised if they weren’t from the same manufacturer.

A 6-year aged tin of GL Pease Jackknife Plug I bought from our Josh. I've smoked a tin of the Ready Rubbed version of this and loved it but never have had the plug. It was hard work but great fun slicing the plug up this morning. The tin note of this stuff is radical. After 6 years the plug was still nicely moist.

A tin of two year old McConnell's Scottish Cake. I am rather enjoying the deep plum like flavor with quite a bit of pepper and spice.

Capstan. Only had one bowl and could not tell the difference between it and Orlik Golden Sliced.
