Deep Elem was our very first Blend, made with a recipe given to us by Mary McNeil of McClelland Tobacco Co. Sadly, Deep Elem was discontinued due to the closing of McClelland and the loss of thier #805 Cavendish which was a unique and integral ingredient.
Terrapin Station pays homage to Deep Elem. While we could not match the fine cut of McClelland 805 nor the subtle sweet top note, by combining various grades and colors of cavendish we have come very close. Of course the proportions and the condimentals remain the same. Terrapin Station is a worthy homage to "Deep Elem" and an outstanding mild English blend in it's own right.
A bed of natural and lightly sweet cavendish is spiced generously with Latakia and just a bit of Bright Virginia for a cool, mild flavorful and slightly sweet English Blend...with a nod to Grateful Dead Fans!
