A truly fine aromatic offering from MacBaren. Upon opening the tin, you are greeted with a powerful, some may consider overwhelming, scent of amaretto and to me, rum. This however, translates gracefully into the taste of the tobacco, notable, but not as cloyingly sweet as the tin aroma. For the fan of sweet aromatics, you would be hard pressed to find amore fulfilling smoke. As with all MacBaren tobaccos, it will benifit from some dry time, especially from a freshly opened tin. I let mine spend half an hour on a countertop, and it wouldn't bite no matter how quickly I puffed.

If you're looking for something dry, then you'd best move along. For those looking for a dessert like smoke, then this may fit the bill.

Pipe Used: Peterson 408

Age When Smoked: Fresh from the tin

This is a blend I could smoke often. The added top flavors are not to overpowering of the fine Cavendish. The aroma from the tin is very nice and the room note is wife and daughter approved. The thick buttery smoke has a pleasant mouth feel with no bite. This is an all day smoke.

This one is my favorite in the seven seas blends because it is less sweet than the 4 others with more "dark" flavor, this is a black, wet Cavendish that tastes like: licorice + amaretto+ chocolate + vanilla, it is MILD and gentle on the tongue with delightful "pancake" room note.

this is a very good aromatic that I would highly recommend, however,Vanilla Cream is still better than this one.

Chocolate. Pure dark chocolate with a hint of coconut is what I get from the tin note and taste. The room note is outstanding! I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well as the other 7 Seas blends (Regular and Royal). And while I hate to use a tired cliche here, this is coming from a guy who, with a few notable exceptions, doesn't normally like aromatics.

Black Blend is my favorite of the 7 Seas line.

I tried this tobacco and I have to say it's quite pleasant. Personally, I love MacBaren Original Choice and this is not very far from it, although there is a difference. Still, OC is better, but you should try this one.

well macbaren is my safety net and i put faith in what the produce (good quality for a reasonable price tag). this tobacco is jet black cavendish that i just couldnt point finger to the flavoring added (although told by Mr. Per Jensen personally) that it is vanilla and amaretto which i never tasted before, i couldnt pin point the flavor. perhaps others might appreciate it better however it deserve the 3 stars for its cavendish sweetness and burn quality , it can be firmly placed on the mild side. the tobacco aroma is acceptable especially if smoked out door (as it wont get as stale as inside a closed room)

This is a very good aromatic. One of the two newest in the 7 Seas line, it came out last fall (2011). It's a Virginia blend toasted into a nice dark Cavendish. As with most Mac Baren blends you might want to give it a bit of drying time before you fill your pipe and light up. It smokes wonderfully though, smooth and even all the way down to the bottom of the bowl. The top dressing or casing is pretty unique and complex. I noted caramel, coco, and licorice flavour to the smoke. As complex as the casing seems to be it's a great all day smoke, because regardless of what combination of flavours it really is the blend tastes wonderful.
