McClelland Personal Reserve Blackwoods contains a balanced combination of sweet red Virginias and hearty black stoved Virginias. This pure Virginian flake is then set down for a long nap, allowing the oils and flavors to marry. This aging process creates a super-smooth blend brimming with sweet, tangy, and toasty notes.
Blackwoods is one of the few blends that I buy over and over again. If you are a fan of blends like Escudo and Golden Sliced, Blackwoods tastes like the filet mignon to their hamburger. Don't get me wrong, I love a good hamburger, but every now and again I splurge and get a steak, and that's what this blend tastes like: a splurge. I highly recommend it to anyone that likes Virginia.
