Mac Baren - Vanilla Flake 1.75oz
I'm an aro fan and I'm still looking for aromatic tobaccos that that are in anyway similar to the legendary McClelland's.Based on a review,this one would fit the bill.I tried this tobacco and boy,was I surprised! Great taste,aroma and the closest thing to McClelland's.Not an overwhelming aro,so beginners can enjoy it,as well.Very clean and easy to smoke tobacco.No burn or after taste.The vanilla taste and room note are right on the money.Will be having more of this outstanding stuff!
Gurkha - Wicked Indie Robusto
This is a strong cigar.On a scale of 0-10, I give it an 8 for strength.Started peppery and mellowed out shortly after., Good burn,well wrapped.Very good draw and consistency.It tastes the same all the way to the end.I prefer medium cigars with a strength of 6 out of 10.So,this one is a bit too strong for me as a daily smoke.Good quality,and an ok cigar for the more experienced smokers.
Sutliff - Creme Brulee
Though Im an aro fan,I didn't experience the overrated taste of this tobacco.Pouch note is mild,room note is pleasant.The taste is not strong enough for me,as I prefer peach taste.It tastes more like honey and vanilla,not very sweet.No bite,burns cool.You probably need to light it a few times.All in all a good aro.Even if you are not an aro fan,you will enjoy this easy, all day smoke.
Odyssey - Connecticut Gigante
Papery & harsh
I smoked the 60 ring gauge.It tastes like paper, like many other low priced cigars.It tasted harsh all the way to the end.This is not to say it is a medium or strong cigar.The harsh taste was weird.No draw or burn issues, though.I understand if a cigar is this size, it is usually priced higher.But for $2 a stick, my favorite cigars are Victor Sinclair serie 55, which are amazingly good, but not available on this site.

Tobacco taste and smell

Pouch note is mild and pleasant. This tobacco is extremely mild.No bite. Mild and interesting taste of vanilla and a bit of creamy chocolate in the background. Room not is quite mild. I tried smoking this in my Mr.Brog Lumberjack,which has a huge bowl.It took over 2 hours to smoke the full bowl.Burned well and tasted sweet to the end of the bowl. As I expected.Lane Limited proved to be of very high quality,again. It is truly an all day smoke.That says a lot. If you like an easy smoke,this is a great tobacco.If you like it and crave for something sweeter,Lane Limited Buttered Rum would feel like a dream come true.

No bite and of a very good quality as I expected from Lane Limited. The mild smell of hazelnut is pleasant.The only reason I gave it 3 and a half stars,is because I prefer stronger taste and room note from aromatic tobaccos.Other than that,it's fine.
Super Value - Bourbon Whiskey 1.5oz
I tried smoking this tobacco in my Savinelli Hercules 604 EX.A full bowl lasted for about an hour,which shows it is not slow burning.Staying lit was not easy,that is not an issue,for me.

Tin note is not strong.This tobacco is of average strength,but I tasted the tobacco more than anything aromatic.The fruit and chocolate taste is lost,here,overpowered by tobacco taste and smell.Room note is more of tobacco than fruit/chocolate. I suppose this tobacco would be more appreciated by non-aromatic fans. I'm an aromatic fan.So,I can just say I won't try smoking it again.
Peterson - Irish Cask 50g
Fig & pepper
This tobacco is more on the stronger side of the scale.The tobacco taste is constantly there.The tin note is of sweet fig more than anything else.Fig taste and smell was dominant and halfway down the bowl,pepper and spice kicked in.If you like perique,natural tobacco taste and spice,you might like to try Irish oak.For a beginner,this may taste a bit strong.For others,I would say if you like tobacco taste,it's well worth a try.
Mac Baren - Plumcake 16oz
Adding sweetness ....
This is probably one of the best quality tobaccos I have ever smoked.Easy to smoke.Tastes great,but not strong.Room note is wonderful.The tobacco strength seems mild,though rated average.I also blended plumcake with some very mild and boring tobacco and the result was truly exciting!

Aromatic tobacco from heaven
One of the best aromatic tobaccos I have tried. Tastes yummy,room note is lovely and not strong. And it's kind of a milder tobacco,which I prefer. CAO is first class,all the way.
Mac Baren - 7 Seas Red 16oz
Mac Baren could do much better
I've been smoking pipes for a couple of years, now. Firstly, I only smoke aromatic tobacco. So, no bias, here. I rarely get tongue bite, but there is so much tongue bite with 7 seas red, that I couldn't believe. And by the way, I puff in and out slowly. The taste is cherry and it's very bitter comparing to any other tobacco that I've tried so far. It has average strength. Room note is not strong, which is fine. I'm a big fan of Mac Baren's Plumcake, so, 7 seas red was disappointing overall, as I expected a lot more from Mac Baren
