I call this blend my end of the day. Only because I don't to burn out on it to the point I can't taste the hint of vanilla. It would make a great all day Va. base smoke. This is my only my view but I feel just a light rub with this blend and a little drying best suits this one. That's just my view. I would tell anyone this blend is well worth
giving a try. I intend to keep it on hand.
Will be getting more.
You have to nurse it a bit but it's worth it. The flake cut smokes way cooler than the loose cut and has way more consistent flavor. Very good aged vanilla-like front root beer or cream soda with little bursts of honey and brown sugar.
I have smoked 20-25 pipe tobaccos. This is by far the best.
It smells & tastes great, kind of like vanilla ice cream! The tobacco comes tightly compressed & looks like a rubbed flake cut. It smokes mild but seems to have significant nicotine content. It is moist but not wet & sticky. I will be purchasing more!
Decided to give this a try, one of my first aromatics. I have tried many of these non-aromatic blends from Mac Baren. I only rate for stars because I prefer something a little stronger, but this has great flavor. I would recommend it for beginners.
This screams fruit and Vanilla in the tin. But not the cheap generic vanilla. This is a beautiful flake made of Virginia and Black Cavendish with a very obvious topping. The quality tobacco still shines through. It's balanced and tasty but you have to be in the mood for such a blend.
Great flake. Definitely needs to be taken slow to get the full effect, but regardless, the flake is a top-notch blend. Strong vanilla flavor, pairs well with a strong coffee.
Best Flake I've ever tried. Rubs up nice, great smell, easy light and burns even, Awesome taste with little dottle!
