I opened a tin of 2005 McC Christmas Cheer last night. It is....

in a word.....


'Disappointing'.

The moisture is higher than I'd like, but that's typical for McClelland blends. The presentation is good, with a tumbled/broken flake. The aroma is prototypical McClelland. I'm not a fanboy, but I'm OK with that.

The thing that I don't dig is the ridiculous density of the flake. I don't fully understand why, but it's hard as a friggin rock. Like, 'dang near impossible to rub out into a dish' hard. It won't burn in its current state short of a severe windstorm, but is so hard, it's like rubbing a hand full of pebbles to prep it. I dried some out...a lot....just to make it friable.

I feel like I'm gonna have to open something else up to enjoy today. ImageImage

Every year during this week we make a pilgrimage across the mountain to Cabarete, where a little beach hotel owner gives a sweet deal on rooms to the teachers at my wife's school. This year, the little beach shack restaurant that's always been here has folded, leaving behind an empty grass shack. It makes a lovely (dry) place to enjoy a bowl of Navy Flake in a rainy morning...

That’s actually not a bad idea. I may have to do that
