McB Scottish Blend...

Post by JMG » Sun Mar 25, 2018 9:24 pm

I've been smoking some MacBaren Scottish Blend that I've had cellared since April of 2012. Dang! I'm enjoying this stuff about as much as I've ever enjoyed any other tobacco.

Do tell. I've never had it, at least as far as my poor memory goes. What have been the standout likes?

I recently discovered this also.
Available in tins or bulk.
A bit lighter, brighter and a touch bite-y-er than my usual Virginias, but good.
Add a pinch of burley to a bowl for another good smoke.

I have not smoked any aged Scottish Blend. If it sweetens as it ages, as most Virginias do, it is probably grand.

This jar is only about 6 months old, but I expect it will not last much longer. This is some good stuff.

It has about all the classic range of Virginia flavors one could seek all in one tobacco.
