    Has anyone done one for McClelland...maybe other brands as well...if any?

    Ocassionally I will see a reference from a tinned blend and then someone commented that one of the bulks is the same or very similar.

    I know there have been ones done for
    Lane and Capt. Black

    Perhaps other companies that I have missed (most like SG, MacBaren, etc. just use the same names)

    Well, off the top of my noggin:

    Bulk 2010 is essentially the same as Virginia #22
    Bulk 2015 is St James Woods
    Bulk Dark Navy Flake is Dark Star

    As I've heard it, they are the same recipe but the tinned version has gone through additional aging. But many of the bulks have no tinned version, such as Bulk 2000, English Cavendish and Oriental Cavendish Mixture, to name three. I've heard that there are bulk versions of one or two of the Frogmorton series but I can't confirm.

    Read through this thread, several of us listed tin/bulk similarities: http://pipesmokersforum.com/community/threads/the-if-you-like-game.18284/

    Here's my post from the thread:
    If you like McClelland #22 Matured Virginia you might like McClelland bulk #2010​
    If you like McClelland St. James Woods you might like McClelland bulk #2015​
    If you like McClelland Dark Star you might like McClelland bulk #2035​
    If you like McClelland Frog Morton you might like McClelland bulk #5110​
