The newest offering in Mac Baren’s HH series continues the tradition of untopped and quality tobacco blends that makes the new iteration of the line so popular. This is a straight Virginia with a mix of air-dried and flue-cured leaf. The result is one of the mildest Virginia blends you’ll ever smoke. It’s grassy, a little sweet and the complexity builds as the bowl goes on, making it a surprising treasure of a smoke.

Fantastic in aroma and taste. All the Virginia goodness.
Excellent straight Virginia. High quality. Beautiful presentation, delightful in taste. Have already purchased MANY more for the future.
I had rather dip it than smoke it.
WOW. As a new pipe smoker and Virginia lover, this is an amazing blend! On my first light I found that this is already a tasty tobacco. No cure needed. I still plan to let 5-6 flakes cure for at least a month. Beautiful Virginia flavors, sweet and aromatic. Great lunch break smoke or in the morning with a cup of coffee/tea. Nicotine level is decent but not enough to put ya down. Only downside I could see would be price but I would buy this again at what I paid for it. If you need someone to help guide your decision about this one: BUY IT.
As another reviewer noted Pure Va is certainly worthy of the cellar to fully develop that great Va tobacco taste & aroma for which they’re renown. I purchased this tin a couple years ago but noted that my tin was dated 2015 ... so this fine tobacco has had 6-7 yrs of fermenting & mellowing ... it tastes & smells great! A big thank you to the fine folks at TobaccoPipes.com ... always a great selection, fast delivery (when the USPS mail service upholds their end of the delivery), and just great customer service. I’m a very happy customer!
I've only been smoking a pipe with different English blends since mid March, so my review is based just on how pleasant this experience was. Also, I only smoke one bowl at night so I guess I would be considered a part timer. WOW!! I really liked the taste of this! For lack of a better term, it tasted sweet. I enjoy tobacco taste and this satisfied. Burned this in my only briar pipe, a Savinelli Tortuga (bent apple). I would definitely buy this again.
Simply one of the best Virginia flakes around.
I choose to do so to ween myself off smoking cigarettes and in doing so, perusing the internet I came upon this sight, purchased a pipe and a few days later bought my first tin of Mac Baren HH Hot Pressed Pipe Tobacco. Thank you for having this product and look forward to this new adventure in your world of pipes and tobacco!
