Hot pressed means that the Flake tobacco is heated during the pressing process. This causes steam to form and intensifies the taste of the tobaccos. Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired Pipe Tobacco is a Burley and Virginia mix but the heated pressing adds a heaping dose of boldness that will leave the smoker thinking of their favorite Latakia blends.

Definitely my favorite VaBur! Like many MacBaren non-aromatic blends, It has an interesting vinegary, barbecue-like undertone that is either loved or hated. I personally love it! Nutty, earthy Kentucky and sweet, tangy Virginia's are beautifully melded together,a result of excellent blending and being steam-pressed. I would love to try this with some age on it, but I just don't have the willpower to keep it around that long!
An exceptional all-day smoke. The nic hit will be too much for some, so take it slow. Pure tobacco flavor that delivers a consistent smoke throughout the bowl.
This is my first experience with this type of tobacco, takes some getting used too, However, I like it and it's growing on me.
This classic is a must-try - good strength (if that's your thing), won't bite the tongue and fantastic flavors. I tried a small tin, then moved on to bulk purchases.
To be completely honest this was my first time to try this tobacco. I’m 95% all English smoker and have a love affair with latakia. I was pleasantly surprised in the complexity of this blend. I really enjoyed it and moving it into my rotation.
It's by far my favorite for quality and taste. I would give it 6 stars if there were a option.
In the can smell is hearty and earth tones, smoking it is exceptionally smooth. Great aroma. My first time trying flake cut-I’ll be getting more.
I was very surprised! This is an excellent mixture.. Very strong without knocking me out, at the same time smooth, full of flavor. Slight chocolate on the retro-hale. Burns well right to the end leaving white ash. I cannot say enough good things about this tobacco. My wife did not appreciate the room note hence I'm not sure it's correct in the description. Will definitely stock up when the Coronavirus restriction will be finally over!
