    McClelland is bringing out some interesting new blends, including a new entry in the Frog Morton series:
    http://www.pipeshowonline.net/McClelland_FrogMortonCellar.php
    There's a blend in honor of their 35th Anniversary:
    http://www.pipeshowonline.net/McClelland_StaveAged35.php
    Both blends feature barrel-cured tobacco and have a piece of the charred-oak staves in the tin.
    There's also a blend that was developed for slow-smokig contests:

    I love Frog Morton. I'll be sure to add this to the next TAD order

    Good thing I hate alcohol flavored pipe tobaccos. TAD minimized this time.

    I'll definitely be giving the new froggy a try even though I'm still on the fence with alcohol flavoured tobaccos, I love the other FMs too much to not try it!

    Nice! Flavored styles are not my favorite, but I'll definitely give these a try! Maybe the flavoring will be a lot more subtle due to the unique "stave-aging". Seems pretty gimmicky, but could be great.

    Doesn't sound like it's for me either. Can't imagine paying 15¢ a gram for a wood chip.

    I might get some of the Froggy one just to see how it ages.

    Pretty soon they are coming out with "Frog Morton in the Hospital" It has a rusty piece of metal in it for aging!

    I had an 8 year old tin of FMOTT that I traded for. Opened it up, smoked one bowl and it went on the trading block minus 1 bowl. It was one of the worst tobaccos I ever smoked. But, to each there own!

    I'm a fan of FM, I'll have to add the new blends to my TAD list.

    I got a tim of FM, still unopened...gonna have to pick up a couple of these...
    as i read, the tobacco itself is not bourbon flavored, just the wood chip, to me, it won't have a strong bourbon flavoring, it might impar a tiny esscense into the tobacco

    Worst case with the included wood chips is I could poke some holes in the tin and put it my smoker when I make my next batch of ribs.

    Oh wow. A gimmick I haven't seen before. Oooolala.

    I do hope they have the common sense to weigh the tobacco first lol.

    Is this what happends to all the barrels of whiskey once they've been depleted? lol

    Doh! Must have had a senior moment. But then again, they do have to cover the additional marketing costs.

    This reminds me of a thought I had a long time ago -- probably seeded by something Greg Pease wrote.
    Add a mere 3% moisture to the tinned tobacco, and you receive 3¢ on the dollar for water. That's one
    of the reasons I'm comfortable with C&D, H&H, Rich Gottlieb (4noggins), Pease, Mac Baren, Stokkebye,
    and several others: the moisture level is spot on.

    You might want to come to the GKCPC club meeting next Thursday night. I am sure we will have plenty of those blends.

    The Contest Blend has been available at smoking contests the last few years and is quite good. For a contest blend it is spectacular.
