A decade after Vanilla Cream Loose Cut was introduced, a new tobacco in this line was created – Vanilla Toffee Loose Cut. The composition of the tobacco is almost identical, however, the big difference is in the aroma of the Vanilla Toffee.

The aroma and taste of this fine tobacco is very well balanced between the vanilla, the toffee and the different tobaccos. The blend, albeit with minor differences, is the same as Vanilla Cream where ripe yellow Virginia is mixed with Burleys and a black Cavendish based on Virginia tobaccos. On top of this, small pieces of flake are added for both taste and a help to keep the temperature down while smoking. All in all, the Vanilla Toffee Loose Cut is a very pleasant tobacco to smoke with a fine interplay between the sweet taste of vanilla, toffee and the natural tobacco taste.

Delightful sweet caramel aroma, sweet and very creamy Cream Caramel flavor with hint of Vanilla in the background, Mac Baren uses here the same excellent Virginia tobacco already present in their Vanilla Cream loose cut, however I find the casing is very similar to that one used in their Original Choice.

This is a first class Creamy Caramel blend.

Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Mild Very Pleasant

This is a wonderful smelling tobacco, and smells exactly as advertised, and produces as lovely room note. However, after trying this in a few pipes, both Cobs and Briars, with different sized bowls, it's an aromatic that doesn't meet expectation of its aroma, and like most aromatics, leaves you under a spell of "aroma deception".

The tobaccos, aside from the added flavouring, does not come through at all. No virginias, no burley, no cavendish. You're going to be smoking hot air, with a hint of toffee vanilla if lucky. This flavouring, however, may shine through a little more if you experiment with using a smaller pipe, and exhaling constantly through the nose. This is a fast-burning tobacco. It's easy to get tongue bite, because at times you will get that lovely flavour come through, and desperately try to get it back again throughout the bowl, so be careful.

I'm sure there are better aromatics out there, where the quality of the tobacco comes first, and the added-on flavouring second. Unfortunately, this is all about the vanilla toffee flavouring, that will leave you experimenting to get the most, if anything out of it. Once you get halfway through the bowl, you'll have to fight off tongue bite and be left with something that's pretty much finished with.

2 out of a 4 stars for me. I'd rather smell this for half an hour that smoke it.

One of those tobaccos with an amazing pouch aroma. Sweet toffee vanilla makes you want to eat it rather than smoke it.

However, (and lets face it we all expected this) in common with so many promising opening bouquets this doesn't come through in the smoke.

No, after the first light the taste just.........dies. Thereafter it tastes like any other cheap tobacco, strong, bitey and harsh.

As I tapped out the last of the bowl, I thought to myself what a nice room note......

Mac Baren Vanilla Toffee Cream . Delicious ! The aroma coming from the unlit mix resembles Werthers Original sweets and is delectable . The mix is a good selection of different colours of the tobaccos , right from jet black up to some almost yellow and the moisture level of mine is totally perfect . The sizes of the pieces are very sporadic , some about a millimetre yet others ranging up to a centimetre in length . Due to the moisture level it takes to the flame without having to be too pertinacious with the lighter and the burn is incredibly even leaving a pleasant white ash . The flavour of the smoke is divine , you get a great spread of the different flavours of the tobaccos without any being too omnipotent whilst all along there is a remarkable vanilla creaminess with a sublime sweetness which is absolutely amazing . As you get down the bowl the flavour doesn't dissipate any but stays full and if you inhale the smoke the nicotine level is brill , neither too much nor too little and it gives me no bite . Room note also has a touch of butterscotch sweetness to it but is not overpowering at all . When it is finished despite the fact this is an aromatic I find there is no ghost left in my pipe . This is an exceptional blend that is a must for aromatic lovers !

Highly recommended brand from Mac Baren's! Burns well, made for slow, slow, slow, deeeeeeep puffing! Keeps the taste in the mouth for at least 2 hours after the bowl is done! Keeps the aroma until 80% of the bowl is smoked without being altered! One of the few tobaccos from Mac Baren's to actually encourage the smoker to keep on going till there is nothing left in the bowl but ash! Many times this far I immediately filled another bowl to continue the voluptuous experience! Cheers to that and made it my new favorite! Tip: When you buy a tin, open it for an hour or so, then close it and let it be for a month before smoking again! Gains in taste, strength and aroma! Enjoy it everyone!
