    I have found a vanilla tobacco that actually has vanilla flavor.
    That tobacco would be none other than MacBarren Vanilla Creme Flake.
    Man this stuff is good!

    I have an unopened tin of it in my cellar along with about 15 or 16 other untried tins. I'm anxious to crack it open.

    i really dont like aro's but this stuff opened my eyes to the fact that if there done properly then they can be very enjoyable.

    the name is right on target, its creamy and taste like vanilla. this is a blend ill always have on hand

    I have a bunch of it. I think 7 tins now. It's a great aro. I sometimes put just a tiny bit in with Va or VaPer blends and it adds a nice hint of vanilla.

    I don't care for the MacB Vanilla Creme, but there is a vanilla blend I do like: Britt's Balkan from 4noggins. I'm not an aro guy, either, but the BB is tasty stuff in my opinion. You might give it a try if you find you like a touch of vanilla. It's especially good because the base is a full Balkan with Latakia and all. Really interesting and great blend when the mood strikes me.

    Argh... picked another tobacco I hadn't tried - Peterson's Irish Oak - over McBarren today. Guess I'll have to stumble back, grab the Vanilla, and hope the other half bought a pair of shoes I can compare purchase this to. :sh:

    Have you ever tried Trout Stream from PipesandCigars.com?
    It has a lot of the ol' vanilla as well. Actually tastes like it smells! Imagine that.

    I just checked my cellar and found that I have a tin of this stuff in there. Funny thing is I don't remember buying it. Maybe I got it in a trade or something:msty:

    Anyways, I'm going to have to pop this thing open and give it a try.
