Those of you who are theatre buffs undoubtedly wondered whether I’d changed from blogging about pipes and tobaccos to blogging about theatre. No, this isn’t a post about Eugene O’Neil’s novel and play from the 1930s. I’m writing about McClelland’s production of Fred Hanna’s marvelous blend, Wilderness, a winning blend of Red Virginias, Syrian Latakia, Orientals (Drama and Yenidje), and a few other secret component tobaccos.
Fred Hanna is a friend of mine as those of you who are regular readers here already can attest. Fred’s devotion to and obsession with the great old English blend, Marcovitch, is a subject I’ve written about here. It is also something important to know about Fred’s taste in tobaccos because, to my palate, there are some similarities between Marcovitch Black and White and Wilderness.
