Mac Baren: HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz

Product Number: 003-039-0098

The strongest blend in the HH line, Bold Kentucky contains a high amount of the finest dark fired Kentucky from the USA and Africa, combined with bright Virginias to soften the taste just a bit. Still earthy and smoky, the dark fired takes center stage, with a slight nuance of sweetness. It's all married in a hot press for one unique taste. Like all the other HH blends made by Mac Baren, this blend has only an absolute minimal casing and no top flavor at all.

Not a complex blend, 4 stars
September 04, 2017
Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
This blend is a good quality flake with a bit of drying needed from tin. Smell of tin has a savoryness about it. Flakes were rubbed out. If smoked slow a bit of hay/grass can be tasted. When big retrohale nic can be felt with a tickle of the nose. Mo... Read More

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
Bold indeed. Never smoked anything like it. Not for the beginner but very rich and powerful. Serious N dose. Great alone or blended with another tobacco. Easy to light, burns well and no bite. Nice smoky tin smell and enjoyable room note (for me, no... Read More
Don’t Let the Name Scare You
May 27, 2016
Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
Although, this is a bold, heavy blend, don’t let the name scare you off. There is no bitterness, harshness, or bite here. Tin note is very pungent and earthy. Something between black tea, and horse manure (gotcha wanting’ to try it already, eh?). I ... Read More
Strong and rich

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
Take your time smoking this blend. It is wonderfully rich and earthy and there is some surprising sweetness, but it isn't citrusy or sharp. It's more like a bread compliment to the spice and nuttiness from the Kentucky. The only downside is it has po... Read More
A Fairly Strong VA/Bur Blend w/Great Flavor
May 25, 2019
Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
Great blend if one likes stronger mixes. It isn't the least bit harsh nor does it have a tendency to bite. It has a true Kentucky/Burley & VA flavor & the tin note was an earthy sweet & sour aroma. The flakes were quite dark & very moist with a minim... Read More
At the end of your rope?

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
Having trouble finding the rope tobacco you like? This is a good substitute--the strength and taste being quite close to those north English twists that are becoming difficult to get.

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 16oz
You hear warnings about super-powerful pipe tobacco, but if you are transitioning from cigarettes or some other form of tobacco, this is one of those that you might need. The nicotine kick is satisfying enough to get you through a craving. Even bette... Read More
Amazing Smoke

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
Absolutely love this tobacco. Taste is top notch, full strength nicotine level, the only tobacco stronger with such good flavor, is Rustica strain tobacco. This tobacco is very similar to Irish Flake in aroma and flavor, but has more nicotine. I coul... Read More

If you are a Dark Fired tobacco lover, it's hard to imagine you won't enjoy Bold Kentucky. BK is one of the first dark fired blends I tried, and it was an instant hit for me. I simply couldn't get enough of that BBQ, savory, slightly sweet and very ... Read More

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 3.5oz
I bought a tin of this at Christmas because it was so highly recommended and have been trying it in various pipes for a couple months now. There are some things I really like about BK. It smells wonderful in the tin and when smoked. In the tin it has... Read More

No big long winded review here. Just good strong tobacco taste with a slightly sweet taste that stays good all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Hit it out of the park McLaren.

Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
It's not for nothing that Mac Baren is sometimes referred to as 'Mac Bitten'. Many blends that I've tried have started off well but didn't finish that way. Bold Kentucky is a very noticeable exception. Smoking it straight from the tin, it lights easi... Read More

New For A MacBaren
March 24, 2015
Product: Mac Baren HH Bold Kentucky 1.75oz
I agree wholeheartedly when Mac Baren says this is their strongest tobacco to date. Very similar to the likes of their ODF but with much less of a vinegar smell from the tin and definitely more potent. A slightly sweet tobacco aroma is the tin note f... Read More

If you want a strong smoke this is your answer -be prepared to pay 10.00 a ounce but hey you get to keep the tin container.
