Mac Baren Raw Classic

RAW Natural Authentic Pipe Tobacco is grown in America and consists of a carefully chosen blend of pure Virginia tobacco with a style of burley tobacco that was once grown by George Washington. It is flavored with Canadian maple sugar, the finest Belgian dark chocolate, English liquorice, Guyana Fair Trade cane sugar, and cocoa bean powder from Venezuela. The leaves are hand selected for the best smoking qualities by our experts. The tobacco is then barn cured using a centuries old process. During curing, the starch in the leaves is transformed into sugar and our tobacco changes color from green to lemon, to yellow, to orange, to a rich beautiful brown. The smell is so splendidly delicious that trying to describe it with words is an impossible task. We ask that you pause before you take the first sniff, because its aroma is such a treat that you will want to remember that first sniff forevermore.

Jul 27, 2016 Mild Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant
The Virginias offer several very mild flavors: citrus, grass, earth, wood, and a touch of honey. The spice from them is a little more than mild. The natural sugar content is a little closer to medium than it is to mild. The burley has a very mild nuttiness, and a few drops of molasses in a support role. The Canadian maple, Belgian chocolate, English licorice, cocoa bean powder, and Guyana cane sugar are just noticeable, and really don’t add the complexity one would think given the multiplicity of toppings. The chocolate, cocoa, and maple are the lightly more obvious ones. The licorice whispers its aspects at its height. The nic-hit is very mild. The strength is mild and the taste level is mild to medium. Won’t bite, and has no harsh spots, though fast puffing will warm your tongue. If you puff like Superman on steroids, you could possibly encounter a light cigarette note, but you’ll have to work to do so. Burns at a slightly more than moderate pace, cool, clean, and smooth with a fairly consistent flavor. Requires few relights, and leaves just a little dampness in the bowl. Has a short lived sweet after taste and pleasant room note. A very easy going all day smoke, though the lack of depth and richness in some departments might not satisfy an all day smoker. Two and a half stars out of four.
