Indeed. This blend sounds like the tobacco equivalent of Dave's Insanity Sauce. Basically a parlor trick, something you try once on a dare just so you can post about it online.Looks like there's gonna be a lot of HH Rustica on the swap page in a few years. . I don't think I would buy one tin before sampling, let alone ten.
I would have bought two one pound boxes if they had been initially offered as they were with the release of HH Burley Flake.I found the exact quote from Per Georg Jensen:

“Right now it is a limited edition as we are moving into unknow territory. In time I am sure we will make it again. ”
I would be shocked if Mac Baren used their HH line for a marketing gimmick. They have no reason to since everything HH is highly rated. Lots of speculation while we all wait for our tins to show up in the US, but those who have had it in the EU are posting favorable reviews. Since I am a big fan of VaBur I am hopeful this will make my normal rotation. Its interesting to see how this release has spurred conspiracy theories on various forums. Guess we will all know for sure soon!Indeed. This blend sounds like the tobacco equivalent of Dave's Insanity Sauce.

To be clear: any limited edition that comes in a numbered tin is part of a marketing gimmick designed to tweak people's desire to hoard. Add to that, warnings about needing to eat a meal before smoking and use a small pipe (or suffer the consequences) and here we are... a big circus discussing high nicotine kick tobacco. Sure, it's well made and well presented because that's what Mac Baren does--but still, a novelty.I would be shocked if Mac Baren used their HH line for a marketing gimmick.
They are trying to meet a very clear demand. If you watch, you'll see that the stronger blends are always sold out.. It's amazing to me that more tobacco companies haven't addressed this.The rustica snuff I’ve had wasn’t pleasant. On one hand it’s nice they are exploring something that has fallen out of fashion or whatever but on the other, I don’t think most people who are into the varying nuances of blends are interested in getting obliterated on nicotine.
Mine is now showing arrival tomorrow afternoon. The XL Dunhill will get it's first smoke with it.First bowl going.
Surprisingly Burley-forward taste! I am pretty sensitive to nicotine, so I was worried, but so far, it is perfectly palatable and tame. The flavor is like a very refined Black Rope so far. It is very full tasting, but not in an offensive way. There is a verrrry faint natural cherry taste way in the background? This is is an interesting tobacco, and I’m glad I got some!
