Enjoyed that read, thank you. I'm sure I'm not the only one who first thought Mac Baren was a Scottish company. As an aside, my wife grew up in Scotland in what was originally a tobacco baron's summer cottage. (One heck of a 'cottage' let me tell you!)
basically it's their tobacco forward line. Where as their main line is more danish style which can be very tobaccoy but has a sweet casing. Notice the name is almost always the star tobacco of the blend. And yeah very good line and some is available in bulk too.
I absolutely love the HH line of tobaccos. They are all excellent. Just really darn good tobacco that I never get tired of. The other Mac Baren blends (with the exception being Vanilla Roll Cake) I don’t really care for. But HH is where it is at.
I see you already know the answer now; it's worth the money though. Very good stuff! I have heard the Latakia flake people complaining it doesn't have enough Lat to be called that. I haven't tried that one. But the others are all are great!
