McClelland: 2000 - Fragrant Matured Cake

RevThom turned me on to it recently (the sign of a true friend, right there). One of the best things I've ever put into a pipe. I don't know how I've been a McClelland fan this long and never smoked it. I like everything about the 2000 - great flavor, great aroma, great DGT potential.

At a tobacco shop in Santa Fe. Just bought a tin of GLP Jack Knife Plug. Smoked some of this in the rubbed form at the last Richmond show when I was carrying JB's pipes. Really liked it, the tobacco that is. JB liked the corndogs.

It's true. I do like corndogs.

I'm not sure when I'll be able to order again, probably Christmas time, but I'd like to get 5 tins of Stonehenge Flake, 2-3 tins of Comoy's Cask #2, and McConnell's Scottish Flake/Cake, if it can be found.

Just ordered 3 pounds of TK-6 for my pipe smoking Muslim neighbor. And 2 pounds of 1-Q for me.

Open for suggestions- Looking for a light baccy,with aro nuances that won't kick me in the ass with Perique/Latakia in bulk form.
Don't care too much for Burley,Burley,Burley.
Any advice would be appreciated.

(Might just stop in at Boswell's, they have a lightly topped, non-goopy,quasi aro.Not cheap,but not expensive either).

Please and thank you.

Have you tried Two Friends' English Chocolate? It's a virginia/latakia, light aromatic. It's good stuff. Broken flake, too.

It's nice to have enough experience with pipe smoking that you have "safe bet" tobaccos, the ones you know you will always enjoy, no matter what.

Good luck. I just did a cursory search and couldn't find McConnell's Scottish Flake or Cake.

Very little, maybe?
I’ve prepared my cellar for semi-retirement.

I think I have enough of tobaccos that improve with significant age, a fair amount of those that need only a little or no ageing to smoke well to smoke soon and will buy more of those as needed ...

and hopefully not so much of any of it that if I am struck by lightning the amount I leave behind will prove neither a burden nor an embarrassment to my heirs.

Not so regarding my pipes. They will surely prove to be a burden and an embarrassment both by quantity and extravagance. Regarding these, too, I’m hoping not much more.

I’m currently opening and smoking mostly well-aged tins of Presbyterian, bulk jars of moderately-aged Virginia flakes (mostly bulk SG BBF, all the Stokkebyes) and the occasional aromatic (Boswell Piper’s Pleasure, Trout Stream, 1Q mixed with BCA) and letting most of my tins “season.”

Lordy, the money I’m no longer spending on tobacco!
Or pipes.

I'm in about the same place. I don't believe I will ever need to buy more tobacco and certainly not more pipes. From here on it will be anecdotal tobacco and sentimental pipe purchases (POYs in particular).

Now if I can just avoid impulses of weakness. Satan, get thee behind me.

Mars Cigars had it a few days ago. I didn't bite on it, but he had quite a bit of it. It probably sold out that day though. It's good stuff though, so buy it when you see it.
