The Mixture blend from Mac Baren is an old favorite. Made since the late 1950s, it’s a mild Aromatic flavored with liquor, vanilla and other mysterious bits. A blend of many different tobaccos, it will have you reminiscing about an afternoon fishing with your grandfather.

Smell out of tin was okay
It tastes better than it smelled coming out of the tin. Cellaring most of it in hopes of it maturing a bit. The taste was mild. Probably a blend I wouldn't buy again.
As a new pipe smoker will leave the details to the experienced. This mix highly rated and I join the fan club.
Nice an smooth
Perfect for a nightcap.
MacBaren Mixture Scottish Pipe Tobacco
It's my first time smoking a tobacco pipe in a while. This tobacco has a nice aroma... in the bag & after lighting. It's a bit strong but I don't think it's overpowering.
First time in over 30 years...
I had placed my pies in a drawer for 30+ years, but decided to jump back in the pool. Forgotten what I used to smoke and decided on Scottish and Modern to start. Perhaps a bit bold on my part, but actually I have been enjoying both (outside). Neither were as harsh as I recalled from my earlier days, and do have a bite, but not overwhelming. The Nicotine hit is a bit hard, but nothing worse than a cigar. The Scottish is more on the robust side than Modern. What I remember my grandfather smoking. Don't believe I will light this indoors though.
This is what i think they call rubbed flakes it makes for a good strong flavor that is not overly sweet.
Not Bad At All
I'm brand new to pipe tobacco and found this one quite nice to start out on. Great flavor, room note and aftertaste. Found it pairs well with a morning coffee and a good drink. Note: Had to dry a little to get a better burn.
In my daily rotation nice and spicy.
Mac Baren Scottish Mix
I was worried about the comments on tongue bite so I rubbed out fully and dried for a couple hours light pack and put it to match. Kept draws slow and paced out a bit. Very easy smooth had a few relights but got sweet floral nutty flavors. Very enjoyable. I would buy again for sure. Slightly stronger than Original mixture.
