Mac Baren introduced this blend nearly twenty years ago and markets it still as the blend for the modern man. It’s an extremely mild Aromatic with no bite, plenty of pleasing taste and none of the heavy nicotine hits of many of today’s most popular blend. If you want to smoke something that won’t grow hair on your chest or rot your teeth, Original Choice could be the right choice for you!

- Room Note:
Smooth, Light, low Oder, great all around smoke
Gentle, tasty with no burning sensation in the mouth or throat.
The tin note is really nice but I didn't care for how it smoked, nor did I care for the room note. I'm going to cellor it for a while to see what that does.
I have not been disappointed with any of the Mac Baren pipe tobaccos, and the Original blend is no exception. After having smoked a bowl, I can see why the reviews are so positive. The blend is smooth, flavorful with no bite and it burns well. I enjoy it anytime of the day!
From the moment you crack open the tin till you have finished smoking a bowl the proprietary aroma will keep you happy. A mixture of flavors unlike any other. It reminds me of times ago when fedoras and pipe smoking was scented in the wind in metropolis sidewalks much sweeter than the prevalent cigarette smoke. I would definitely recommend this wonderful Mac Baren Original Choice Blend.
This blend was introduced to me by a friend and it was immediately addictive! I enjoy all types of tobacco but for a light aromatic this is right up there. The flavor is mild but very consistent through the whole bowl. Reminiscent of an OTC blend, which is good at any time of day, has a pleasing aroma, and tastes great through the whole bowl. The flavor is slight vanilla with some sort of rum or whiskey note. I can't differentiate further but I do enjoy it. Give it a try and you might enjoy this one too!
Cherry... strong cherry that sublimates the tobacco and light vanilla that plays in the background. Room note reminds me of an air freshener... glade cinnamon apple. burns well, no bite on this one. I'm not a fan of cherry-flavored tobacco... give me honey, chocolate, molasses, licorice, hazelnut, etc... but not cherry. If you like fruity tobacco, you'll like this.
I found this blend to be the classic mild (1/5) morning smoke. I also use this tobacco to blend down the strength of a tobacco (make it milder) that's too strong for me, but this Original Choice always improves the flavor as well!.
Awesome 1/5 strength tobacco. The flavor is a bit on the mild side too though, so I love to mix it with other stronger flavored tobaccos.
