Mac Baren Halberg Green

Tin Notes:
The 125th anniversary of the Halberg family as owner of Mac Baren Tobacco Company is what lead to the creation of the Halberg tobacco line. The 4th generation of Halberg, Henrik Halberg, took great effort in this job to create a tobacco line which would serve as a highlight of 4 generations of tobacco manufacturers. No effort has been spared when the tobacco grades were selected. From tobacco fields of 3 continents, the absolute best bright Virginia and ripe Burleys leaves were harvested. A part of the tobacco blend is pressed into cakes, hereafter cut into small pieces and hand blended with the exclusive ribbon cut and cross cut Virginias. The nose is greeted by a scent of gentle berries mixed with a hint of exotic fruits. When smoked the perfect balance between natural tobaccos, subtle flavour notes and cross cut Virginia flakes create a slow burn in your pipe and an exquisite aromatic smoking pleasure.

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

The tin note was of berries. On the charring light and the true light the flavor was of the berries. About a quarter of the way through the bowl there was an earthy taste that started to come through along with a hint of exotic fruits. A little bit further into the bowl the sweetness from the Virginas was apparent. The combination of all the flavors made for a very festive holiday smoke. Halberg Green burned well leaving a light gray ash at the bottom of the bowl. I would recommend this blend to any pipe smoker and it also has a nice gift tin.
