The pouch aroma of this blend smells really good. I am picking up on hints of vanilla, chocolate, raisin, a little bit of fruitiness, and maybe a very light hint of rum. This seems to me to be a mixture of the Regular Blend and the Gold Blend. The moisture content of this blend is on the wet side and it is a little sticky. Some drying time would be recommended. I loaded up my pipe and proceeded to the charring light.

The pouch aroma of this blend smells very nice. I am picking up on mostly Vanilla with hints of Chocolate. Moisture content is on the wet side and a little sticky. Some drying time would be recommended. I did not let it dry and just loaded up my pipe and proceeded to the charring light. Upon the charring light, I smelled the vanilla right away. It smelled great and left a very pleasant, lingering room note. The flavor of vanilla was also there and it tasted very nice. I finished lighting the pipe and settled in for the smoke.

Mac Baren HH Vintage Syrian Pipe Tobacco Tin

Editors Note: This tobacco is from an sample pouch that I received from Mac Baren at the time this blend was introduced. It is has about 2 years of age on it. HH Vintage Syrian is not available in this pouch.

The pouch aroma on this blend has a sweet and tangy Virginia smell which was accompanied by the smokiness from the Latakia. The moisture content is perfect for smoking right out of the pouch. It is a coarse cut, which means there are some nice chunky pieces of tobacco. I loaded my pipe and proceeded with the charring light.
