    I tried a tin of MacBaren Mature Virginia about a year ago and thought nothing special about it. Recently gave it another whirl and I am hooked on this blend. I find myself craving it now. So between BLB, Golden Extra and MV, I'm set for a while.

    Did you try it new again or was it cellared for a year? Just wondering, I had been eyeing this blend. Thanks

    What specifically do you like about it? Or is it hard to describe? I'm curious because I haven't tried it yet, but I like several of the same blends you do. So we have some similar tastes. HH MV might bump up higher on my to-try list if I see a tin somewhere and do an impulse purchase.

    I don't have a knack for describing things like that, sorry LOL.

    +1 on the HH Mature VA. It is good stuff. A friend gave me some for Christmas and I have ordered it since.

    I don't know, it was funny. At first, no big deal, but now I'm crazy for the stuff.

    I sampled this a few months ago and thought it was bitter and sour tasting for a matured virginia, guess I just can't get on with African leaf.:(

    I got a tin of MV and GE at the same time. Burned through the GE pretty fast and then got severely hooked on the MV. Both are winners in my book.
