    I recently got tin of Mcbaren honey and chocolate,and well its okay the problem is i cant really taste any chocolate in it,Its got more of a sweet taste maybe the honey overpowers the chocolte i dont know.Ive only smoked two bowls out of it.To highlith the positives it has no bite and gives quiet a pleasant nicotine buzz without inhaling.Do any of you guys have experience with this tabacco? ive been smoking it in my aromatic pipe

    thank you for your help

    I smoked about 2 bowls of that stuff, thought it tasted like chocolate milk, and passed it to a friend. I wonder if your pipe is coloring the flavor. If you've smoked other aromatics, fruity ones or whatever, it may be hindering the flavor of the H and C blend....

    A fresh cob or a meerschaum should allow all the flavor to come through....these two pipes don't ghost as much as briars...........

    Butternut Burley is persistent in a pipe to put it mildly ( I like it actually ) even in a meer.

    A fresh pipe should bring iut the flavour of the new tobacco - a cob should do it just fine. I'm just starting to experiment with Mac Barens blends and will be very interested to hear what you think of this one,

    Happy smoking

    I noticed with MacBaren that I got a lot more of the flavor I expected when I smoked it in a much larger-bowel pipe. Otherwise to me, the flavor was hard to develop in a regular (smaller) pipe (I am thinking of a Dr Grabow Grand Duke when I say smaller). YMMV, but that has been my experience.

    I've never tried that particular blend, but perhaps the theory might be the same.

    This is the ticket with the MacBaren's-larger bowled pipes, in my experience as well. If you do smoke them in cobs (I do at times), be sure it's a larger bowled cob such as a freehand or Country Gentleman. Lastly, with MacBarens, I recommend a loose pack, and you will be rewarded.

    I didnt get much out of it when I tried it either. Boy the aroma stays in my kit bag though! I finally had to double bag it and then removed it.

    I may have been suffering form the same ghosting problem mentioned. I still have a couple fo ounces so maybe I will go back and try it again.
