Mac Baren 7 Seas Royal Blend – Pipe Tobacco Reviews


By Bob Tate


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.

On the charring light, the aroma smelled nice and sweet with hints of chocolate and some light vanilla. Flavor wise on the charring light; it was sweet with no discernable flavors. I finished lighting the pipe and settled in for the smoke.

From the beginning, the flavor was on the light side. I am picking up on light hints of chocolate and some very light hints of vanilla in the flavor. The flavor never changed much from start to finish, but every once in awhile I would get a very light hint of coffee. The flavors did start fading a bit towards the end of the bowl. This blend tasted sweet, but not overly sweet. I could taste the flavors, but they were not very strong.

This is a solid blend in the aromatic genre. It smoked cool, dry, and didn’t bite. It also didn’t leave a goopy mess in the pipe. Once again, I would agree that 7 Seas Royal Blend compares with Captain Black Royal. I prefer the 7 Seas because it has a darker, richer, deeper flavor than Captain Black. If you like Captain Black Royal, I think that you will really enjoy 7 Seas Royal Blend. I Recommend it.
