    I was rescently turned onto Club Blend and have really been enjoying it! I noticed that the Roll Cake is very similar but with the addition of perique. So my question is how noticeable is the perique and what are your thougths on these two and will they age well?

    So i received a pouch (0.7 Oz) of this in a recent purchase from Smokingpipes.com (love those people they always toss in a freebie!) Its a blend of virginia, latakia, burley, cavendish and sprayed with 30 year Glenfarclas Scotch... and im not particularly sure how i feel about it. Packed one...

    Although the Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake might be considered an aromatic, this one definitely is. The room note is quite nice, as one might expect, much like the smell in the tin -- vanilla all the way. Not much of that taste in the smoke, though. The flakes were rather moist in the freshly...

    Anyone like these blends? I picked up a 100g tin of the "Dark Twist" yesterday, and haven't opened it yet. Just like spun cuts, and have been enjoying Mac Baren's flakes so I took a chance. I see that they make quite a few "Roll Cakes", and the descriptions are all very similar. Anyone tried...

    Here is some useful information. <O:p</O:pI recently bought a few Mac Baren tins and was getting ready to input the info into my tobacco cellar. I noticed that there wasn't a date on the tins, so I emailed the company and asked how to decipher the codes that were present. <O:p</O:pTo the right...

    I'm sipping Mixture Flake just like I do Navy Flake, and it's steadily growing on me with each little pull on the bit end. The most notable thing is that this flake allows itself to be smoked at a low level of burning - it appears to be going out but doesn't, at least not right away, and...

    So I've been smoking some HH Mature VA & some VA #1, I gotta be honest, I don't really like this stuff. It burns great but I get almost no taste from it. When compared to a SG VA this stuff just seems bland. Am I smoking the wrong MB VA's? Am I doing something wrong? Does anybody really like...

    Great stuff! Another VA pleaser from Mac Baren. A nice nutty/sweetness to it, smokes pretty cool. On first light it has a little bit of a nibble at my tongue but it doesn't last. I don't detect any casing or added flavoring. I highly recommend it to VA smokers. It has enough spice to keep my...

    This is a brand new offering from our tongue nibbling Danish friends at MacBaren. I went looking for their "official" description on the MacB site, but there is no mention of this blend! Oh well, lifting the text from smokingpipes instead: I got a sizable (rather, huge) sample from SlowT. This...

    Back when I was a noob, the corner store in Oberlin (now long gone, sadly) was one of those great places that sold more than prescriptions. It sold high-end comic books, gifts, and most importantly, pipe tobacco. Among the blends they sold were Mac Baren Golden Extra and Scottish Mixture. ISTM...

    Does anyone know when Mac Baren started printing dates on tins? I have a couple that just have a dash where the date is on the more recent tins. I know it does not give me a precise date, but it can give me a "before this" date.

    I'm a burly fan, but have been interested in trying a Virginia. I dig the ceramic jar you get with the 16 oz. HH Mature Virginia purchase right now. However, I don't want to get a pound of smoke I'm going to regret purchasing. How would you compare Virginia to burley? I'm a Prince Albert...

    I was looking for a no nonesense mildly sweet and nutty Virginia and I think that is pretty much what I got. The reviews are all over the map from tasteless to tastey and harsh to smooth. I like the stuff. Opening the tin reminds me of walking into a hay barn on a hot august night. The aroma is...

    The first keen stripes off sunshine on my head, my garden in front witch is trying to come over a hard winter, the world might end, but here I am, in my wooden garden chair, enjoying some off the first sunshine and a fresh bowl off Mac Baren Vanilla cream. Well,..that’s in my right hand. On the...

    A blend of Virginia, Cavendish, and Burley tobaccos. Being new to smoking myself, I can't accurately tell you the exact moment each leaf comes into play. I received a small pouch of this along with my first corncob, and out of the pouch it smells sweet, strong, and exact what I would expect...
