McClelland doesn't make a red virginia flake scratch

I have been messing about mixing 2035 dark navy flake with other McClelland ginyweed (so far mixing it with 22 is producing the best results) and in the vein of their Red and Black I went looking (hopefully) for a bulk or tinned straight red virginia flake. None. OK, McRanies Red Flake, but still not sold officially as a McClelland product, and not obtainable other than through McRanie.

I just thought that was odd given their large menu of ginnyweed options.

Yeah? I guess all their reds are rubbed or ribboned, etc. Kinda weird when you think about it.

Hmm? I could have sworn Epitome was a straight Red.

I just checked TR, the description doesn't say it is red virginia but some reviews do. I think I'd have to go looking for a specific year of Christmas Cheer, perhaps.

Doesn't Red VA eventually black if pressed at a med-high case and aged?

To the best of my understanding, CC is their only straight red 'ginny flake. And a fine one it is too.


Cheers,

I think Red Flake is the ticket. So what is it says Crainie. It's still Mc.

Could you not get some 5100 and repress it?

I just popped a tin of R&B and it's indeed good stuff. Seriously, if you get the McCranie and use whichever McC matured flake you got, youll be in the same ballpark. Dark Star would be an interesting mix...
