Mac Baren: HH Old Dark Fired 3.5oz

Product Number: 003-039-0075

A bold flake of dark-fired burleys in a well balanced unity with flue-cured Virginias. Mac Baren's HH Old Dark Flake is hot pressed, meaning that during the pressing, heat is added by steam to the tobaccos which causes the tobacco to intensify the marrying process giving us a bolder tobacco. The robust, earthly flavor of the dark-fired Burleys shines through in the taste, and you will experience a deeply satisfying smoke indeed.

Amazing baccy

Product: Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired 1.75oz
I mixed this one with escudo and Acadian perique for a camping trip and I wish I would have weighed them out because it was absolutely lights out. I usually don't smoke this one until the temps drop cause I really like it as a cold weather tobac.

Here is a well made and densely pressed tobacco. It's not overly smoky or acidic. It tastes great on a cold day and breaks apart without much fuss when you're ready to fold and stuff. I personally prefer to rub it out until it becomes fluffy, after w... Read More

this tobacco, even though its not flavored at all, and is completely natural, really gave me a coco and spiced orange kind of note, not like a huge flavor rush, but more like a, put your finger on this flavor kind of thing. It also packs quite a litt... Read More

Short and to the point. Very tasty should you prefer a richer, fuller flavor. Not extremely complex but a good smoke in my estimation.

Deep dark and rich, earthy and creamy. Flavor is very consistent all the way down. I'm not usually a fan of dark fired tobaccos, but this one is special. Not really a room note that will win friends, although its not acrid. As another review said, th... Read More

I bought ten tins of this on the off chance the good reviews were right. I'm glad I bought so much. A very nice, satisfying smoke, a fine blend by any account. Even better, it smoked well all the way down to the meerschaum. No waste.
Too Strong

I guess if you need the nic this is a good one. Its not for me, too strong on the nic. Taste is flavorful but the cigar note bothered me. even if i needed the nic hit it would be 3 stars I smoke Bosphorus Cruise, 3 oaks,Frogblends, balkan flake, etc

By: Johnny R.
Product: Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired 3.5oz
I tend to agree with most when they say this is a full strength tobacco without the Latakia. Although I like Latakia blends, this flake is a fine tobacco as a substitute for a full English blend. I wouldn't want to smoke it all the time, but it good ... Read More

Almost Perfection in a Flake

Upon opening the tin you are immediately greeted with green olive, meat, hickory and deep earth notes. Very thinly sliced and narrowly cut. I believe they are presented in this fashion due to the high nicotine content. Your average piper/hobbyist wo... Read More

Nice smoke. Easy to inhale, smokes to a nice fine ash atop a very small dottle. On the stronger side of the scale. The burley shines, but the VA is still there, hanging in the back. Though I enjoy the aroma of latakia, it doesn't sit well with me w... Read More

Bold, yet understated. Dark and creamy with a hint of spice that has a chewiness to it that you just don't want to go out. I was given a 4 flake sample of this by a friend. Two flakes, rubbed out completely and packed into my meerschaum (I pack a lit... Read More
