Black Shag

Sherlock Holmes kept it in the toe of a Persian slipper nailed to the mantelpiece. It was dry and strong. Kept at what we today have deduced to be proper smoking moisture and smoked gently, this excellent stoved shag will provide hours of smoking pleasure. Examine the ash carefully.

Arcadia
It was said to be of such arresting character, such delicacy that it stopped all conversation. Holmes recognized it by its characteristic fluffy, white ash. it was Dr. Watson's favorite. It is our hope that this formula, deduced after careful study of several vintage examples of what was known as the original and made available to us by dedicated collectors, will please the most discriminating smokers.

Honeydew
The sweet, fragrant Honeydew was all gone by the time Susan Cushing offered the container to Sherlock Holmes, but he was undoubtedly familiar with this fine Irish flake's gratifying flavor, its pleasing aroma and gentleness on the palate. McClelland's Honeydew is a subtly sweet, fragrant flake tobacco in the Irish tradition.
