...YUM! Maple and bacon, you can't go wrong with a flavor combo like that! I recently picked up 4oz. of this maple topped goodness and I have to tell ya, it's found a place perched at the top of my favorite aromatics list. For those who are wondering, there is no actual bacon flavor to this blend, but rather the addition of burley that has been fire-cured with hickory wood that gives the aroma of hickory smoked bacon. As far as the maple flavoring, I don't find it heavy handed at all. It is just enough to make its presence known, but not at all overpowering. Futhermore, when purchased in bulk, the price is certainly reasonable. If you're a fan of maple based aro's, I highly recommend Vermont Meat Candy.
