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.
Nice old school tin and a potent tobacco.
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.
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.
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.
