One of the guys brought a tin of McClelland's Arcade, aged 8 years to pipe club. It was a sealed tin and we opened it up. Tobaccoreviews.com classifies it as such. "Pressed in traditional Scottish cake, aged to perfection, this blend of the finest naturally sweet Matured Virginias, fragrant Katerini, rich Louisiana Perique and just a touch of rare Syrian Latakia makes an exceptionally smooth, cool smoke suitable for a stroll along the castle arcade." Upon opening I detect some red Virginias with the ketchupy smell, but much more mellowed with aging. Also it was the perfect moisture to light right up. Also it isn't a plug but a broken flake. And upon first light the tanginess that one expects from a red shines out. It is quite tangy, more so than many others that I have smoked from McClelland. But as you progress deeper into the bowl the tangy tast gives way to a very peppery Perique explosion. I smoked two bowls of this and experienced the same thing in both. The Perique really shines about mid bowl and then diminishes to a brown sugary sweetness which ghosts the mouth. It says there is Latakia within but I couldn't detect any, perhaps on a fresher tin the Latakia stands out more. I really enjoyed this tobacco and have promptly ordered a couple of tins for the cellar. My friend who brought the tin gifted me the aged one, needless to say I will be enjoying each and every bowl within.
