When this first came out some years ago , it didnt do it for me . Got a tin recently in a trade to try it again , it's been 18 years or more ... Man , do I love this blend ! It's a no brainer to light and keep lit and smokes wonderfully to the dry b... Read More
Horrible - like smoking old cardboard

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
Well I finished my 50g tin. It started off okay, but over a two week period the tobacco gradually dried out, and as it dried the flavors gradually disappeared. Towards the bottom of the tin it started to taste like smoking old cardboard - just a bl... Read More

Not what I expected

Not what I might have expected or hoped for. Burns consistently well, leaves neat white ash. But smell and taste are rather bland and uninteresting.

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
I was let down on this one. Not much of anything going on here... the tobacco was even dull. I could get past bland or dried out casing, but even the tobacco had little to no flavor. perhaps I got a bad batch, I am a fan of MB tobacco's, and had hig... Read More
Best Night Time Smoke

Best smoke to cap off the night. If you're looking to add some flavor, mix with a scottish blend for a great smoke.
Alright, who did this?

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
I’m no expert, being a noob and all, but I feel like there’s some wizardry happening here. At first blush it has a very ‘Monte Cristo’ vibe about the aroma and taste. There was a notable thick and creamy oiliness to the smoke. Not having much of an e... Read More
A nostalgic note
April 23, 2022
Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
Everyone should remember their first taste of pipe tobacco. For me, that first taste was Mac Naren’s Black Ambrosia. It’s been years since I first sampled this but I still remember opening the tin and the figgy blast of fruity cavendish really struck... Read More
Ages horribly
March 27, 2022
Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
Smells of dark berries out of the tin. Smokes decent the first couple of times---not particularly flavorful---but over about 2 weeks dries out quickly and is left with a chemical smell and a hot, ashy taste. I ended up throwing the rest out. A waste.... Read More
Not what I had hoped for

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
The tin note is similar to Holger Danske Black and Bourbon, but smoked there isn't much going on. It's OK, just rather blah. I'll stick with the Holger Danske.
Excellent Aromatic

The worst thing you can say about this tobacco is it's very similar to Original Choice. Very mild on the tongue, a nice aroma, a little more flavour, and lights and smokes very well. I could see using this as a daily driver.
A great sweet smoke

Mild but good

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
Just a sweet and pleasant smoke. Everyone around me enjoys the room note and I enjoy the subtle sweet flavors. Finished the first tin and bought two more. This isn't going to blow your mind with strong flavors but it is enjoyable.
Had high hope for this one

Product: Mac Baren Black Ambrosia 3.5oz
But they just didn’t materialize. Don’t get me wrong. It is not a bad smoke. But it just did’t live up to what I was expecting. The sweetness is there but the flavors are extremely mild. The room not is very nice though. It’s really the saving ... Read More

Smoke it slow for a cool, honey sweet smoke with sweet aroma.
