    This is a company I have a lot of time for - any of their tobaccos I have tried I have been impressed with. God the "wanta list" just goes on getting longer!

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention,

    Gerry

    Really excited about the club blends, but even moreso I am excited about
    My bank account just cried!
    The Ashton blends were simply amazing and to see them back under the McClelland label is very awesome!

    New Century and Scottish Woods have got me pretty stoked, both were pretty good. I had my local (now gone) guy make me a Scottish Woods imitation after it was gone.

    I guess I didn't get the full scope of this until I got home last night and read the flyer McC mailed out. Not only am I excited about the aforementioned club blends, but a couple of the new blends, as well as some of the old Ashton blends have me really fired up.

    It's nice to see McC shaking things up a bit. I was introduced to them on the banks of the Ausable River in 1988. I was smoking a local blend in a Savinelli, and a fellow downstream came up and inquired about the blend. I gave him some to try, turns out in the first Castello I had ever seen, and he offered me some #14. It was love at first puff. He and I fished and smoked alot together after that.

    I was thinking about him yesterday while reading the posts on sending tobacco to the troops. Every couple of months, whether I was in Korea, or the Desert, or wherever, I would get a box from him with lots of stuff to remind me of home, always including 2 or 3 tins of McC.
