I wasn't overly impressed by this blend but wasn't disappointed either I mean anything from Mac Baren's is good. The tin note is awesome a little more candied than expected. Packing is easy even with the cut plugs. Unfortunately the vanilla sort of d... Read Moreisappears once smoking is underway but as said before it's Mac Baren so it isn't a bad smoke. There is a little bite so it needs to be smoked slow. I don't think I'll buy in bulk but I will definitely keep a tin or two on hand. 👍 Read Less
great smoke - little to no vanilla taste for me

I really enjoyed this tobacco.
I pulled all the tobacco out of the tin and placed it in a snap shut mason jar. I found this helped the tobacco as it was a bit sticky

As far as vanilla blends go this one is not bad. Nice vanilla tin note. The aroma and flavor are pretty good. Minor to no tongue bite.

After finishing the tin, I found it to be bitey, and won't be ordering it again, as I could barely taste any vanilla.
Harsh, horrible tongue bite!

I keep a few pinches of this in its tin to remind me of how delightful the vanilla aroma is. Although I can't detect any vanilla flavor while smoking it in my pipe, I'm still giving this a solid 5 stars!
Great smell ,Harsh taste

Not too good, no matter how slow you smoke it, or what pipe you use, it is very harsh tasting , and the only vanilla cream, is in the scent, other than that it makes a good air freshener, I would recommend this to hand roll cigarettes only, as that ...

Addendum to prior...

After four months sitting in a mason jar, this tobacco has definitely improved. The heavy fruit casing has softened considerably, and a mellow toasty aroma has come through.
I still struggle to find the vanilla I was hoping for, (so I cannot grant mo... Read Morere stars) but the flavour and aroma it does have is fine. It is a simple mild aromatic that does the trick when you aren't looking for an intense smoke. Rather it is like a less cloying 1Q that doesn't leave you mouth feeling like it was chewing on burned werthers. Read Less
Mild, raspberry flavour

This little devil taunted me with a sweet whisper, a tickle of the nose with fragrant wanting. Boy was I in for a surprise. While a sweet smell wafted out of the tin, it was far more of fruit and cherry, and not even a hint of vanilla. (Disappointed)... Read More It was a bit on the dry side, as I expected something more akin to 7 Seas regular, yet undaunted I loaded up my larger billiard, a trust old briar from the '50s. Packed well, lit very well, and need only two matches for the whole bowl. A nice white ash, but not much in the way of flavour, no bite at all, light billowy fumes, but what really struck me was how this little bastard sent me straight to the thunder bucket and proceeded to beat the hell out of me from top to bottom, nine different ways from Sunday. Normally a nic-kick will show its ugly head over a period of time, but this fellow Sucker-Punched me in the worst way imaginable. Smoke in, dinner up, breakfast down, and a helluva mess to boot. Word of warning, do not under estimate this "mild" leaf from those swarthy Danes. Read Less
