A question was raised by a member of the forum as to whether 2015 and Beacon are one in the same.

I was curious as Beacon is one of my favorites and I had not tried 2015. I am always looking to find more economical bulk tobaccos for everyday smoking and cellaring so I bought a sample.

My first impression was that 2015 was sliced slightly thicker than Beacon and is blended with a tad more perique (spicier). Beacon has more of what I call a "barbeque beef brisket" flavor that I enjoy.

2015 is very good and I ordered a pound for cellaring. Maybe with a couple of years of aging, the gap will close between Beacon and 2015. Time will tell. I recommend both tobaccos to all of you McClelland Virginia/Perique lovers.

Not familiar with Beacon but 2015 is one of go-to smokes and most favorite VaPer. Guess I'll have to get a tin of Beacon and see what the similarities are for myself.


Cheers,

Being the 2015 expert that you are, BD, did you ever get that tin of Beacon and make a comparison? I'm wondering how Beacon Extra compares to 2015... maybe a little more in line with your 2015 with added perique (is it 15% you add?). I have been smoking a tin of B. Extra from 2010 and it's superb!

I know, old thread, just curious...

Nate, yes I did get in a tin of Beacon a while ago and promptly forgot about it. Think I also got in a tin of Extra as well. I'll need to ferret these out as I have no idea where they are and my organizational skills leave much to be desired!

And I'm far from being any kind of expert!
