Mac Baren Golden Extra

Tin Notes:
American pipe smokers will find this blend under the name of Golden Extra. The blend is 100% identical to Golden Blend it is just the name that is different in the USA. Since Golden Blend was introduced back in 1952 it has gained many, many fans all over the world – rightly so. The special selected brown Burley tobaccos, mixed with just a touch of golden Virginia, are carefully pressed and stored. The large slices are cut and partly rubbed up, which makes this blend easy to fill into your pipe. This slowly burning blend is very satisfying and you will enjoy the slight note of chocolate – a note that all good Burley tobacco produces naturally.

     Strength: Mild - Medium
        Flavor: Mild
         Taste: Mild - Medium
Room Note: Pleasant

The tin note was a combination of natural tobaccos. The brown Burley and golden Virginia aromas meld together into a wonderful scent. On the charring light and the true light there was a mild nuttiness from the Burley.  About a quarter of the way into the bowl the sweetness from the Virginia made its presence known. During the bowl a faint hint of chocolate wandered in and out of the flavor profile. Golden Extra burned to a dark gray ash with a little dottle at the bottom if the bowl. It stayed lit with no re-lights. This is a good smoking Burley blend and I would recommend Golden Extra.
