Mac Baren's Vanilla Flake is a blend of matured Virignias and mellow black Cavendish topped with an exceptional vanilla flavor. This true flake provides a pleasant, sweet and aromatic taste experience.
I was pretty much an all McClelland guy and one of my favorites was their vanilla cavendish, and was gutted when they closed down, then just by random chance i picked up a tin of this on a whim and holy crap. I found my replacement. Its absolutely no...

What a great slow burning, mellow and rich smoke. Down to the last little bit of ash. Read Less
I bought a single tin to try looking a nice vanilla flavor tobacco and this has become my fav. to me it has a warm vanilla flavor like a pound cake but it will burn hot to be warned. it is mostly a trial and error process to find the pipe and speed t...

First impression, love the tin art! The tin I opened had a barely perceptible Vanilla note. The moisture content directly out of the tin was perfect for an immediate smoke. Very smooth smoke and the only hint of the Vanilla was on the retrohale. I th... Read Moreink what the Vanilla did do was make for an almost creamy release of smoke.

I've been smoking a pipe for 2 weeks, so my palate has not adjusted to something like this particular blend. Upon opening the jar I picked up a flake and it just fell apart in my hand, it was very dry. My lack of experience in aromatics aromatics cou...

Burns hot and bites even when dried and smoked slow. Had a good room note but not a great taste. There are many better options out there for a decent aromatic.

At first it was ok, but after the 5th bowl, I just kept wanting more. And the smoke was harsh as I am a beginner, but it was not bad and just keeps getting better. Overall, a good step back from my sweet dessert blends!
If you're looking for a nice aromatic flake with a pleasant room note then look no further. The vanilla smell is raved about by those around you. It comes through nicely in the flavor.

It takes a light nicely and burns cool and evenly. It can bite a bit if you push it. As it's a flake it's meant to be smoked slowly.

I like this tobacco. It doesn't really like me as much. I have tried it in several pipes and it likes to burn hot on me. I had to slow down a bit, which helps. It's leaves a very very nice room note. For a social smoke, I would recommend it. It... Read More's light and non-offensive. Read Less
My neighbour was so kind to share a flake with me the other evening after just purchasing the tin earlier in the day. Very nice smoke!! I just wanted to smoke it all day! But like most MacB's tobacco, smoke slow or you will get a bite.
At first I was completely disappointed in this baccy and actually tried giving it away on youtube. No one offered to take it, so it sat in a mason jar for about six months or so.

This stuff is great.. I like the 16oz package because the flakes are full length rather than chopped in half for the small tin.

Vanilla screams out of the freshly opened tin. The wafers of tobacco are beautiful however a little dry. Smokes nice without being rushed, rush your cadence and it bites bad.
