Mac Baren Modern Virginia Loose Cut
Virginia, Modern Cavendish and Burley are manufactured separately, and finally the tobaccos are gently hand blended into the final blend. The Modern Virginia Loose Cut is manufactured from Virginias out of 2 continents. Bright yellow and a darker Virginia have been used combined with a Modern Cavendish, to secure a soft and smooth smoke with a touch of Burley. This blend provides you with the natural sweetness from the Virginia tobaccos combined with just a slight topping of sweet, ripe fruit. Furthermore your surroundings will appreciate the pleasant room note.
Flavor: Mild - Medium
Room Note: Pleasant
The tin note was of ripe apricots. On the charring light the flavor was of apricots. On the true light a citrus flavor and a grassy flavor from the Bright and Darker Virginias was detected. About a quarter of the way through the bowl a slight nuttiness from the Burley joined the flavor profile. Also the apricot flavor did fade a little but was still well represented. Modern Virginia Loose Cut burned well with only any few relights. This is a great tasting Aromatic that does not overpower the tobacco's natural flavor.
