Mac Baren Halberg Red

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. This Halberg blend is unique and a pleasure to all of the senses. Your eye is greeted by a colorful blend of cross cut bright Virginia tobaccos, clear brown Burleys, a soft Virginia Cavendish, and in addition to all these tobaccos the blend contains pieces of 2 different flake tobaccos. These different tobacco cuts are then hand blended into this extraordinary blend.
The nose is greeted by a scent of gentle sweetness. When smoked, the perfect balance between natural tobaccos, subtle flavor 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: Pleasant

The tin note was of the aroma of the Virginias. On the charring light and the true light the flavor was of sweet hay from the Virginias. About a quarter of the way through the bowl there was the earthy taste form the Burley started to come through along with a hint of vanilla. The combination of all the flavors made for a great smoke. Halberg Red 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.
