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":

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=y30FA7MD3fM

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.
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

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

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.

The Beacon Extra is 2017, so it's pretty good upon opening. But the Tudor Castle has fermentation going on, and I like to shut that down before smoking. So, yes, that one will breath for awhile. Makes a huge difference.

If you tell them they will most likely send you another tin free of charge.

Yep. So this my "extra" tin. I thought about sending it to my Secret Santa, but opened it instead. ;)

I was (very unexpectedly) gifted a pipe and a tin of tobacco as part of a, "12 Pipes of Christmas" event on a FB pipe group. I gave the pipe away to a young pipe smoker the day after I got it, and opened the tin Sunday night: C&D 2012 Christmas Blend. It has a secondary name on the side of, "Chestnuts Roasting" or some such holiday saying. It's a pleasant blend of Burley and Virginia, with an ever so subtle topping. The Missus loves the first half of the bowl but says the second half has a dreadful room note. Nice Vitamin-N kick.
It's not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body. --Colton

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.

I always forget they do videos. Thanks for sharing. I think I may have a tin of this, maybe even from my SS last year. Might have to do some digging this evening when I get home.
