This is the first MacBaren tobaccos that I have ever tried. I was looking for something more substantial than an aromatic but, not as strong as an English blend. This delivered what I was looking for in spades! It was more than I expected in that it is the smoothest tobacco I have ever smoked. The tin note was a raisiny, figgy type of aroma and was very well presented. I decided to try it based off a friend in the YTPC talked about it. I am glad I tried it! MacBaren definitely has a winner with this tobacco. This is one of my new favorites. It lights well and stays lit all the way to the bottom of the bowl. It smokes very well in my Savinelli Logo 616. I will definitely be buying from you guys from now on! I ordered this at another online shop because I found it cheaper there but, they sent me the wrong quantity and it took 11 days before the rest of it showed up. I will only be ordering from you guys from here forward.
Burley is overpriced and a bit strong but it is a good mixer with Plumcake.
The only reason I didn’t give this tobacco a 5th star was this was my first true Burley. I fell in love. Rubbed out and let dry this smokes to true perfection. Almost no bite and little doddle. I would recommend this to anybody wanting an all day relaxing smoke. Great flavor and no Smokey smell or good room note
The nutty, earthy, woody, lightly molasses sweet, mildly chocolatey burleys take the lead over the other components. They also sport a touch of spice and light dryness. The tangy, ripe dark fruity, earthy, very lightly grassy dark Virginias play an important condimental role. There’s also a strand or two of red Virginia in the mix. The lightly spicy, woody, earthy, mildly sweet dark fired Kentucky is a background player.
A great Burley Flake...
