McClelland Oriental Mixture No. 14

This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

For those who prefer medium to full-bodied Latakia mixtures with a strong Oriental influence and some sweetness, Oriental Mixture No. 14 will be nirvana. Superb small-leaf sun-cured tobaccos are blended with a fair amount of Cyprian Latakia and are sweetened and simultaneously deepened by the addition of stoved black Virginia (which the Europeans commonly call black Cavendish), making this a solid medium-bodied Scottish blend.

Distinguished without distinction. Not having a wide experience with English I can't say this was one of my favorites. Still, I enjoyed it and would consider keeping a small tin foe rotation.

McClelland Oriental Mixture No. 14
McClelland has a fine reputation for producing quality pipe tobacco, and in short I would call Oriental No. 14 a sophisticated blend that requires careful tending to appreciate and enjoy. Straight out of the tin, it was a bit too tangy for me. After 48 hours with the lid ajar, stirring the mixture every 12 hours (humidity in my home is about 55%) it improved to my taste. I describe this tobacco as dark and chunky, with varying lengths of cut and some apparent broken flake. I prefer to rub this in a ball between my hands to soften and loosen it a bit before packing. There are fine flavors and aromas with this tobacco that you will just need to experience. I don't think my subjective preferences will help. I've pretty well grown up in my ability to keep a pipe lit, but this one, much as I have experienced with other McClelland blends, requires close attention to keep lit without constant relights and without over puffing. I found this gave me only a little tongue irritation, only very little. I would recommend this for someone who wants to learn to improve their pipe smoking skills. Of course, Pipes and Cigars provided outstanding service and delivery.
Customer Testimonials
This mix is distinctly different from a Balkan in that it has less latakia.Good smooth, slightly, smoky mix. It has just enough nicotine to be very relaxing and enjoyable. Will definitely keep on hand. 5 out of 5 stars.

Medium bodied in taste as well as nicotine, burns well, very easy on the palate the taste doesn't over power or linger to long and no tongue bite. Interesting English style with a lot of flavor and complexity.
