    Shoot, even someone like me who has vowed not to try anymore Mac B blends might give this a go! Sounds interesting.

    I know I'm going to sound like the village idiot, but I don't get it. "clove-spice, chocolatey sweet", etc? Is this an aromatic? Never had any other burleys, SWR is all I know, so that's my reference.

    I don't get their spice reference either. MacB blends are Danish blends, and those are generally light aros, and I that they cover the ground between old school American OTC's like SWR and the upscale European blends offered by Dunhill and the like. I'd guess that their new flake will be a very light aro, but beyond that I don't know.

    I have 2 tins, I bought them the day they came out. I have yet to open one yet. Want to finish up what I have opened before opening new.
