McClelland “Blackwoods Flake”: is it as good as people say?

From the tin: “The natural sweetness of mellow, red Virginias mingles inextricably with the richness and inherent spicy aroma of Black Stoved Virginias in this doubly-aged red and black all-Virginia cake mixture.”


  1. Where do you come up with these voices? You sounded like Walter Brennan! Thanx again for the entertaining review…

  2. Another good review! One of my favorites!

  3. Thanks Bradley, think I'll give this a try!! Another well presented review.

  4. Sounds very interesting especially for a straight tobacco. I'd love to smoke this in a clay pipe, think the flavour would be really clean if that makes sense.

    Great review fella.

  5. another top review. your getting quite good at this. I hope the wrist gets better soon!

  6. What are your "Stratosphere, favs of all time" VAs?

  7. Given your gift for gab, you really ought to consider wine reviews!. Great review, just ordered a couple of tins, thanks!

  8. Hey Bradley Excellent review of this blend I really enjoy this blend and the ketchup vinger smell goes away after I smoke it for a little while I do feel the spice in my mouth and the sweetness frm the Virginias it's a delightful blend thanks Bradley for reviewing this blend I'm glad you like it I believe it get better with age happy smokes ☺☺☺☺☺👍👍👍👍👍👍 best regards Peter.

  9. I can't remember where I read about it, I'll have to do some digging, so please don't quote me on this, but stands out in my mind there was an article or maybe a forum discussion somewhere which stated that a number of McClelland's Virginias are air-cured rather than the more common flue-cured. Supposedly the heat present in the flue-curing process breaks down certain compound(s) inherently present in Virgina tobacco which contribute to the ketchup/vinegar smell. In the absence of heat during the curing process, this compound remains intact. I've only noticed this ketchupy/tomato-like odor in two other non-McClelland blends: Samuel Gawith Golden Glow and Esoterica Scarborough (both of which are worth reviewing).

  10. It tasted like dust to me…Take care. Go Cowboys!!

  11. Hey Bradley thank you for sharing your thoughts .40th Anniversary on the list?

  12. I miss the old announcer voice

  13. I will be checking this out and as you said, smoking it by the fire on a winters night. Thanks for the review as always, be well. Mark

  14. You should really check out bijou from Cornell and deihl

  15. Thanks for the review….I'll give it a try!
