Mac Barren Plumcake Navy Blend

Tin Note:
Plumcake brings your imagination back to the old times when the sailors filled their pipes with good, satisfying pipe tobacco.
This blend consists of carefully selected Virginia tobaccos in a beautiful ribbon cut, Burleys cut as a ready rubbed, some Original Cavendish and finally to top the blend off, a handful of Latakia is added.
All together the different tobaccos add a perfect taste of natural sweetness and a smokiness coming from the Original Cavendish and of course, the Latakia.
It is a full-bodied blend with offers the natural tobacco taste and on top of these excellent tobaccos we have added some genuine Jamaican Rum.

     Strength: Medium
        Flavor: Mild to Medium
          Taste: Medium
Room Note: Very Pleasant

 The tin note was of figs. The tobacco needed to be dried for a while before smoking. On the charring light the flavor was of the Virginia with a slight hint of the Jamaican Rum. On the true light the smokiness of the Latakia and the Cavendish added to the flavor. The amount of Latakia in this blend is minimal. The flavor remains way in the background. The tobacco burned well and produced a light gray ash with no dottle. I had almost no relights. This blend can be enjoyed by smokers of both Aromatic and English blends,
