Mac Baren Golden Blend

Since Golden Blend was introduced back in 1952 it has gained many, many fans all over the world – rightly so. The special selected brown burley tobaccos, mixed with just a touch of golden Virginia, are carefully pressed and stored. The large slices are cut and partly rubbed up, which makes this blend easy to fill into your pipe. This slowly burning burley based blend is very satisfying and you will enjoy the slight note of chocolate – a note that all good burley tobacco produces naturally.
Notes: American pipe smokers will find this blend under the name of Golden Extra.

Packs easy, burns clean and even. This is an absolutely delicious Burley blend with the perfect combination of sweet, creamy and nutty flavor without biting the tounge or becoming boring, therefore a great all day smoke. The aroma is sweet,creamy and nutty as well.

Since it comes in bulk, I got 4 ounces of it to try. I enjoyed it from the first bowl so much that I smoked it bowl after bowl until it was gone. When I finished the last bowl, I couldnt get to the tobacco shop fast enough to buy a whole pound.

At such a reasonable price, this has replaced Burley London Blend as my favorite MacBaren offering.
