Though I've collected tins of CC going back to 2004, I had yet to smoke any of them as I've put all of my tins away for aging. Thanks to the PIF/MAW thread and Jordan (jfserama), I have a sample of CC 2008 and tried it last night.
Its a dark, chunky VA flake as is typical of McClelland, and...
Picked a tin up about 3 weeks ago and immediately put it into four ounce mason jars.
Decided to try it tonight while grilling tonight.
Right off the bat there was a heavy citrus taste to the smoke. Reminds me of the orange note you get off of Shocktop or Blue Moon.
It smoked very cool in my...

1 tin 2010 Christmas Cheer 100 grams
1 tin MacBaren Navy Flake 100 grams

I forget where they are going, but my apologies in advance for one of them :rofl:
Ive been working on this idea for a while and finally have what I need to get started. I wish to accept donations of all types to send to our Troops deployed in Afganistan and Iraq. This is not Cigar exclusive. In addition to Gigars and accessories is Pipe Baccy and their accessories, Also items...

Too bad I can't smoke any of till Christmas morning...
However I did have a long luxurious smoke with a full bowl of FVF today in my molina pipe, I swear it took two hours to smoke it all down! What an experience!
Oh, and should I worry about the...
So last Christmas i got some Xmas Cheer 08, popped the tin, took half with me to school and left the remainder of the tin at home (in hopes to age). Will there be any aging going on in that opened tin? I know it would have been better in a jar, but let me know that all is not lost :violin:
I recently figured out why I never spring for McClellands CC.
While puttering about in my attic recently, I stumbled upon the old suitcase that I stored my tins of pipe tobacco before my recent return to pipesmoking. From 1995 until 2007 I stopped smoking in order to raise my kids in a...
I scored a tin of each of these at my local B&M. Apparently they have just been sitting there since they were originally purchased about 4 years ago. They still have another tin of 05 Cheer too, but apparently, there's no rush.
I bet this is far from the best score around though - what's the...
These reviews are from a Blind TOM Review I started up over at Cigar ******. Posted here to help the fellow BOTLs out.
Thanks to the reviewers at CA: Yellowgoat, Nick, Curly Cut, and Slow Triathlete.
so i stopped by my local B&M to see about some Christmas Cheer (ended with another pipe too), and he had tins of 2003, 2004 and 2005. What is your favorite? Any differences between the years? I picked up a tin of 2004, per his recommendation.
What are your thoughts?
I figured this would be a no brainer for this month. I also chose christmas cheer because some may have vintage tins.
Feel free to review any year that you have. Mccranies.com has some tins from 03 and from 08. I will start thinking of blends for January, I hope you guys have some fun with this.
