Where to Buy
From three continents Mac Baren has gathered hand-selected Virginias and Burleys for this blend, then dividing them into portions that will be ribbon cut, cross-cut, or pressed and cut into flake, before all finally rejoining each other to produce balanced burn qualities and complex natural flavor profile. The results of this are then topped with a careful dose of fruit and vanilla aromatics, to create one of their finest artisanal blends.

More cross-cut and broken flake than ribbon, but burns perfectly all the way to the end of the bowl with no harshness. Like the Red and the Green, it is mild with the full taste of various fruit flavors, including apricot, berries, cherry, lemon, and maybe a hint of mango. The black cavendish adds a very complimentary vanilla taste that provides a light bass note without competing for taste. The various flavors one normally expects from lemon yellow and brown Virginias are present, though subdued. The burleys are mildly earthy, mostly sweet and slightly nutty. I get a little less of the berry notes and more of the citrus than I do in the Red and Green entries in the series. Not one hint of a chemical taste exists here. Presented within one of the classiest boxes ever designed for a tobacco product, it amazes me that all three of the aforementioned blends are mild in strength, yet very full of flavor.
