In general, UB, I have not found most C&D blends to my liking. I gravitate to McCl & G.L Pease. That doesn't mean they have no blends that I might like, only that those I've tried haven't rung my bell.
1) As you know, McClelland is done and gone.

2) As you probably know, C&D does all of the blending and such for the GL Pease labels. Craig Tarler and Greg Pease used to collaborate on blends, under the Two Friends label.

I also love and miss the McClelland virginias. As soon as I heard that McClelland was closing up, my first thought was, "I wonder what C&D will come up with?"

I am going to check out these Appalachian Trail blends really hard at Chicago. That's my mission this year.

Would you like me to get some samples for you?

In the Good Ol' Days, C&D would pop open any tin and pinch a generous sample of anything for anyone.

But under the Obama-era rules, FDA does not allow "free samples" of tobacco.

So we had to "buy" sample packs (for 25 cents each). But it was a lot of work to pre-label the samples, so they had a limited variety.

I got some White Lightening and Bluegrass samples for ya. Send me a PM with your address.

Another couple observations on this. I'm not a huge C&D fan, outside the GL Pease blends. But this White Lightning is good stuff. Grassy Virginias not unlike Rattray's Hal O' the Wynd (minus the strength). I don't get strong applejack, raspberries, or vanilla. I think these are in there just enough to bolster the naturally sweet VA. Lights easily with no drying time. This is a great tobacco. I'll likely buy more and also try out the others in the series.

Remember when you were going to give me a tattoo midway on my AT thru-hike in 2012?

Nope. Broke my foot south of you. That's why those yahoos are making fun of me on the previous page.

I'm still down to get some j1n ink if you're still offering.

I often imagine doing the APT, and then I think of you and I’m like, “that would be me” so thanks for being my reminder that it’s probably for the best that I have kids and probably won’t have that opportunity lol!

In all seriousness though, I do want to try these blends at some point, although there is simply no reason for me to buy more tobacco at this point haha!

Maybe the next box pass...
