Mac Baren: HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed

Product Number: 005-004-0018

The HH Old Dark Fired you know and love from Mac Baren in a more convenient ready-rubbed form! Bold flakes of dark-fired Burleys balanced with flue-cured Virginias have been broken up into fine ribbons. Since this tobacco is hot-pressed into flakes before being rubbed out, the robust, earthy flavor of the dark-fired Kentucky still shines through in the taste — promising a deeply satisfying smoke, indeed.

I've been smoking a pipe for a while now. Tried a lot of different types and strengths of tobacco. Aromatics, Sam Gawith flakes, McClelland, Butera, Lane, Dan, etc. Smoke on average a bowl a day. Scenario: Ate a big meal. Smoked a bowl of this stuff.... Read More

Product: Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed Bulk
This is a real winner and a go-to tobacco for me, I reach for this more than any other blend to smoke. It's earthy, nutty, spicy, slightly sweet and perfectly balanced. This is almost my favorite tobacco right now.
深沉厚重的老黑

Product: Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed Bulk
感觉是很有时间包浆的一款草,深沉而丰富,然而口味并不沉,而是醇,变化很丰富的醇,我猜应该是深度转化了,没有丝毫青涩之感,也许名称中的老黑已经反映出了一些……值得尝试,推荐

One of the absolute best smokes out there. Richness, smoke, barbecued meat, leather, bacon. So many strange and delicious notes! Combine this with Latakia and some plain black cavendish to mellow, and you have the ultimate blend.
Strong for my taste but...

Use it to add body to my own Virginia blend with a mild black Cavendish. Good nutty flavor.

Product: Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired Ready Rubbed Bulk
This is great tobacco! The tangy, slightly vinegar taste hangs in easily for the first quarter of the bowl. After that, the vinegar hint fades into the background and the overall taste improves. The DFK to Va mix is perfect. Strong taste of earthy, n... Read More

Great dark robust smoke. Bag note reminds me of Drum cigarette tobacco which I loved. It’s Smokey, spicy, and ready to be rolled into a ball and smoked as soon as you get it. I imagine this will only get better with age. I will definitely be buying m... Read More

Good smoke, but not what I expected. It’s similar to Peterson’s Irish Flake in taste and aroma. Dark and rich. Needs some drying time out of the jar. What I was expecting was for it to be more like Peter Heinrich’s Dark Strong Flake, which is conside... Read More

Although I haven't smoked the flake version of HHODF I can only compare this Ready Rubbed with Peterson's Irish Flake. Its aroma is similar but HHODFRR's smoke is stouter and less tasty. Considering it is thin sliced ready rubbed, oxygen is more pres... Read More

Firstly, don't mistake this for a replacement for the tinned version, they are both great tobaccos but this is not as complex or aged as much as the tinned version. This tobacco is great to strengthen up milder tobaccos, both aromatics and naturals... Read More
