    Just received my tin of Christmas Cheer yesterday. (as well as Latakia Flake, FMOTB and Blue Mountain). I'm definitely a McClelland guy for the time being.

    Go Texans!!!

    I have a tin of Dominican Glory Maduro and another of Grey Havens packed away. I wasn't going to open them until I got through some of my current stuff, but this thread is tempting me...
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    Just bought a tin of their Grand Orientals: Smyrna No.1 today at the B&M... went in only for pipe cleaners. TAD?

    I had tasted it a few visits ago, remembered liking it, and I've been wanting a change to the VA/per, burley, and aro's I usually have. I thought an Izmir blend would do that nicely. Actually mentioned this to the tobacconist and he gave me a ounce of a blend he's been working on and thinking about introducing if he gets favorable reviews. (it's a black cav with a cherry blend, and a little perique, and something else too I think...)

    Good luck waiting till Christmas to start smoking one of your tins. You'll give in to temptation and atleast open it up for a quick smell....then you'll be taken in and somewhat dazed by the aroma. Next thing you know, you'll have a pipe in your hands and be filling a bowl without even realizing it. Your next thought, as you snap back to reality, is what are these glorious plumes of smoke surrounding me, (crap! I was gonna wait!....). Oh wait we were talking about you.....I'm sorry. LOL

    I opened my tin up after work yesterday and just couldn't wait to dry it out a little,(which I should had done). The tin aroma wasn't ketchup smell to me, like I've experienced with some other McClelland offerings, but just pure sweet Virginia. Obviously it smoked a little wet since I was too impatient to give it some time, but even at that it was a sweet flavorful smoke to say the least. I'll be smoking another bowl this evening after some proper dry time. Lately I've discovered that I enjoy english blends and really dig latakia and that's pretty much all I've been smoking for the past several weeks. I think this is a very good thing. I think a little time away from virginia's has helped me appreciate and enjoy their flavors that much more. Anyway, that's just a few ramblings on CC2011

    I've become quite a fan of the Grand Oriental family. They're unique in that they are milder than my beloved English blends, yet very flavorful.

    I have a tin of the Smyrna but haven't tried it yet. Would like to hear your experience with it.

    I just received an order from 4noggins today. Because of this thread, I included 1 lb of 5100 Red Cake, and 4 oz of McC's Bulk 2035 in the order.

    2035 is a new one for me. For those that like Navy Flakes, and McC's tangy virginias like Dark Star, this one is right up your alley! Picture long, thin flakes, about the size of Penzance. They are as dark as Dark Star, with the classic McClelland's tangy virginia. These are different, however, becuase the flakes also spent some time aging in the rum barrels that make Navy Flakes.

    The end result is a tangy, twangy red virginia flake that has a sweetness to it introduced by the addition of rum aging. For those that like these 2 types of tobacco, this will greatly appeal to you!

    I'll be ordering another pound in about a month to set to aging. Damn. There goes my cellar, again!

    +1 He's right about this one.

    Also, give 2020 Matured Cake a try. Like many others, it really starts to sing after you let it rest for a year.
