Hey, man.

Tell me what you think of this. I haven't nabbed a tin yet.

I like their Carolina VA but, that's more on the lemon orange side.

I'm pretty sure they sold out of Carolina Red Flake the same day it went on sale.

I'm just now into my 4th bowl. It is rich & very sweet and has tanginess, but no lemon that I can pick up on. It won't bite, either. Leaves a nice aftertaste in the mouth, but I find that it doesn't like re-lighting. Affects the flavor for quite a while afterward. Some compare this to McCl 40th Anniversary (which, God be thanked, I have quite a bit of) but I feel 40th has more depth/ complexity. This is good tobacco, though. Best blend from C&D I've ever had. And it's a straight Red Virginia. Maybe from the same region from which McClelland used to find their red Virginias.

As popular as this is, I am sure C&D will run another batch of this. Only 2400 were tinned.

C&D blends tend to benefit from some age...they can them quick. I let C&D tins sit at least 6 month before I open them...that might give this blend the depth you are looking for.
