To create this mild, yet satisfying blend Mac Baren has combined loose-cut golden Virgina, ready-rubbed Burley, and a special Virgina Cavendish... along with twenty four other (evidently secret) components. the resulting smoking mixture is smooth, and sweet, topped with what they describe as an exotic, fresh vanilla aromatic.

This is a tricky blend to nail down. It's a good blend, mind you, but a tricky one. I'll describe it, as the others did, as very fruity, but exactly what fruit is present...that's a tough one. Somewhere in between cherry and raspberry, but more cherry than raspberry, and although the description above mentions vanilla, I noted more chocolate than anything. So it's a fruity in the vein of cherries with chocolate, and yet, not quite like a chocolate covered cherry....more like a dessert that contains both ingredients. At any rate, I am sure from my description you can see there is a lot going on in this blend. It is a very good blend. Not bitey or overly wet. When I noted the flavors to my wife, she agreed that the room note smelled just as the taste I described. It was difficult for her to nail down as well.

This particular blend has a rich and decadent flavor that marries well with the blended tobaccos. It isnt a light and delicate flavor like peaches, but instead carries more flavor weight like a cup of coffee. Very pleasant and not overbearing. This is not a knockout aromatic flavoring, and if it were to ghost a pipe, I would think it would take a couple bowls before anything was retained.

This is a very nice fruit and chocolate/vanilla blend. It's no Halberg Green, but it is in the same vein and is sure to be a welcome treat at the end of a long day.

This is a ribbon cut danish aromatic with just a little broken flake, and hydrated to the perfect level for smoking. The tobacco smells stronger in the pouch than in the room or your mouth. Mildly pungent; less so than the other two blends in this series. Mild and very creamy with several fruit flavors including raspberries, though the cherry note stands out slightly more. The vanilla from the black cavendish is light, and works well with a more prominent semi-sweet and smooth cocoa essence. Somehow, for some reason, this doesn't taste like a cherry-chocolate blend in spite of their mutual presence. Burns well, and even and is very consistent in its complexity. A great after dinner or all day smoke that leaves a very pleasant after taste. A well blended mixture with little of the fragrance of the Gold and Silver, it is the least sweet Cube blend.

Black Cavendish, Burley, Cavendish, Virginia Tobaccos

Tin Notes: Another Wonderful presentation of tobaccos by Henrik Halberg that come is a foil bag and cubed box - very nice !. The tobaccos are good cut and color, slightly moist and highly aromatic aroma

The Burn: Even though the tobacco is slightly moist straight out of a newly opened pouch i believe that this blend is best enjoyed without airing it to dry first. Rich and Creamy Very Flavorful ! I think that this tobacco blend is best enjoyed in a small sized chamber pipe or a clay pipe worked best for me

Definitely a tobacco blend for those who enjoy a full flavor highly aromatic tobacco.

Room Note: Wonderful !!!

my 5 star rating = 4 highly recommended for those who enjoy aromatic blends

Again, trying Cube bronze brought as much pleasure than its brother Silver. The casing is chocolate and vanilla but the chocolate prevails. The cut is exactly the same as Silver, thus ribbon cut, loose cut and flakes; not curly cut as announced in the description. Bronze, like Silver, is for the experienced smoker, i.e. the one that can pace himself and smoke this beauty slowly. If he can, he will then be rewarded with rich and silky flavours of creamy chocolate, not overwhelming, but very distinctively perceptible. At the same time, he will experience an aromatic that also offers the taste of tobacco which, in my experience, only the Cube line offers so far. Highly recommended. I can't wait to try Gold...Cube tobaccos rock, gents!
