    Hi all,
    Anyone ever have this one? Any good?
    The TR reviews are mixed and looks like a love it or hate it tobacco.
    They have a good price on it at JR tobacco and I was thinking of trying it.
    I wanted my fellow PSF'ers take on it before I add it to the order.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's pretty good. I keep some on hand for when the mood strikes. Smokes a little hotter than the MB burleys but I say it's definitely worth a try.

    a rather interesting Va, toasty, lightly sweet, very little if any dark notes in the taste and I think the lightness is why it ends up getting smokes hot. I seem to puff more when there's less flavor, but it's very nice.

    I have a tin, but haven't opened it yet. I look forward to further comments.

    It's a very light Virginia, sweetened with sugar and water according to Mac Baren, I like it and smoke it on occasion.

    Holy crap, I think I mentioned this one three times in the last hour. Been smoking it as of late. It just satisfies really well. A very clean taste. A must for the VA lover.

    It's certainly all right, but of the Mac Baren virginia products, it's pretty far down my list. I'd WAY rather have Dark Twist, Club, Roll Cake, or Navy Flake.

    I like it when I'm looking for a light, fairly sweet and uncomplicated Virginia flavor. Like all MacB slow sips work best.

    Oh it's our fault is it? Sounds like a higher power is involved.

    I think Anthony LaPaglia is having a tough time not laughing for real in that scene too.

    I like McBarren #1...I buy bulk Perique and mix with. It is a staple for me...you can get a 5lb bag for just a little over 1 bill.
