    Not for me personally....

    Posted by Yonaton on 17th Jan 2021

    First, let me state that I probably don't have the greatest senses for detecting subtleties in flavors and such in tobaccos.

    When I opened this tin, I wasn't very impressed with the smell/aroma from it...luckily the *taste* was much better, heh. It's still not a blend I'll personally be buying again as it just didn't really do much for me. It was rather plain and the wisps from the top of a bowl that sometimes make it up the nose when one is smoking, were rough, to say the least.

    This is a blend/type that is simply going to have to be tried by each person individually because I just can't say I'd recommend it (especially to new pipe smokers), but there are Kentucky blend smokers out there who might find this particular brand/blend better than what they smoke presently.

    THE STRENGTH RATING ISNT A JOKE.

    If you want to add some nic to your bowl but don't want to use five bros on the cheap, and find a barbeque twang pleasing, this is very much for you.

    One of those blends that makes you say "holy shit how is this legal?!?!" In terms of strength.

    A dab will do ya.

    Genuinely tastes like barbeque.

    HH Bold Kentucky

    Perfection: bright Virginias, stripped of their acidity and saccharine sweetness by hot-pressing, marvelously married to dark fired Kentucky Burley for a flavor like tangy molasses. This tobacco burns the most completely of anything I smoke, and they forgot to take out the nicotine like in most blends, not to mention a flavor that is simple on the surface but teeming with nuances underneath. I cannot express enough how much I admire this blend and think Per Georg Jensen is a wizard of the leaf. You could smoke this all day and never get bored. Like most flakes, it takes a bit to get it started, but then it smokes easily if you just keep breath-smoking and ends up as a pipe full of fine ash.

    Mac Baren - HH Bold Kentucky

    Posted by Erecshyrinol on 31st Mar 2020

    This flake blew me away. It is a UK style Virginia flake with a large dose of fire-cured Burley added. If you like old "Drum" tobacco, Gawith Hoggarth Ltd "Dark Flake," Stokkebye's "Amsterdam" blend, or Peterson's excellent "Irish Flake," you know this type of blend. Mac Baren hot presses sweet yellow Virginia with dark fired Kentucky Burley and makes a flake that burns easily, smells fragrant, delivers high nicotine gently, and comes at a standard price. This is one of the best tobaccos and best values out there.

    Definitely Bold

    Posted by Frank DiCicco on 5th Oct 2018

    Tried this tobacco and its solid! It is certainly bold. Very flavorful and strong. I do prefer the Old Dark Fired by MacBaren but wanted to check out this one too. Does not disappoint. A great tobacco. Pick up a tin and try.

    This tasty, slow-burning flake tobacco was just what I had been looking for as an end of the day smoke. Highly recommended.

    Good stuff

    Posted by Unknown on 14th May 2018

    They definitely weren't lying when they say it's a 5 out of a 5 on strength. With that being said, yes it's strong, but it's also really good.

    Wonderfully Full Flavored

    Posted by Utah Homebrewing on 10th May 2017

    Has become one of my favorite tobaccos. Robust, spicey, peppery flavor. Does not wimp out during the entire bowl. Maintains a nice, true, full flavor. Took me about a half of tin to figure out how to smoke it. Take your time smoking the bowl. Small, light puffs and you will experience a nice, full flavored, genuine tobacco.
