A Great Aromatic

This is a pouch from 2010.

This tin aroma of this blend is very nice. I pick up on raisins, chocolate, and a light hint of coffee. The moisture level is on the wet side and it is a little sticky. I recommend some drying time.

At the beginning of the bowl I tasted raisins and chocolate. It tasted really good. Around the 3/4 point I started picking up on some very light hints of coffee that mixed in nicely with the raisins and chocolate. About the mid-bowl point the flavors started to fade and continued to do so until the end of the bowl, but they never totally disappeared.

This is a really good blend and I like it quite a bit. It smokes cool, dry, and didn't bite. I even tried to get it to bite and it wouldn't. It doesn't leave a goopy mess in the pipe either. I Highly Recommend it!

Favourite of the 7 Seas

Over the past two days I've given 7 Seas Regular blend a couple of bowls, and I thoroughly enjoy it. A great cool smooth smoke with a casing of chocolate and vanilla which intermingle and sometimes intertwine. They're cased on a black cavendish and golden burley leaf combination. Sometimes the vanilla took over and sometimes the chocolate took over, other times the two flavors mixed wonderfully, and still sometimes the taste of the great leaf combination took over for a moment. It's been a wonderful smoke every time. The flavors mingle just enough to make the smoke tremendously enjoyable without leaving me wondering where the flavor casing has gone. By the time I realize I'm mostly tasting the burley and black cavendish all the sudden the vanilla or chocolate flavor pops back up. It is a bit moist in the tin, as most MacB blends are, but hasn't given me any problems with relights or tongue bite. Definitely recommend giving this blend a try, especially if you're an aromatic fan.

Mac Baren 7seas Regular

I come to review a couple of the new Mac Baren blends under the 7seas line: the Regular Blend and the Golden Blend. They have striked me much more than I expected. The GB is a mix of Virginia and Burley, non-contrasted golden colour, medium-large ribbon. The RB is a mix of golden Burley and Black Cavendish, very dark in colour with some lighter specks, broaden cut. Leaves are good quality with no sticks. Both are aromatics of the same league, the “vanilla/pastry” constituents are clearly detectable but delicate, very different from the typical Mac Baren standard. Vitamin N present in traces… Unlike any other aros, they burn surprisingly cool & smooth, and the flavour actually reflects the pouch aroma. The GB displays a more true tobacco aroma than RB, nevertheless I found myself more fascinated with the latter. In fact, the RB offers an intriguing sweet/toasty/smoky flavour which is comparable to a EM. The GB is also sweet/spicy, but in a higher scale spectrum. The quality/price factor is very remarkable. Three stars
