Description

It all began in Svendborg, a delightful little town with a picturesque port in the cold waters of the Baltic Sea, in Denmark. Here, a small tobacco manufacturer opened in 1826.

The Mac Baren blends were so successful that in 1995 the company’s name changed to The Mac Baren Tobacco Company.

To this day, Mac Baren Tobacco Company belongs 100% to the Halberg family, which has for a generous four generations guided it to become one of the leaders on the pipe tobacco market, ranking Mac Baren as the second largest producer in the world.

These days, Mac Baren brand is recognised as a synonym for quality by smokers across the globe and we could not be prouder of our history and extremely grateful to everyone who, with their hard work, commitment and devotion, has contributed to writing this history.

 "A complex mix of subtle aromas inspired by the sweetness of the Virginia leaf."

It's a ready rubbed preparation of high-quality Virginias, Burleys and Orientals from three continents, that have been layered, pressed, aged, cut and rubbed, ready for you to enjoy the married full flavours of.

The quality of the leaf is visible and tangible as you open the rather luxurious looking pouch. The aroma is of pure tobacco and minimal additives, which will surely please most who experience it.

Mac Baren Navy Flake was developed in 1965, much work went into the composition of the raw tobaccos. Selections of Burley tobacco were made from our extensive stocks and after countless tests the right Burley content was found.

Similarly, tests were then carried out on Virginia tobacco. Different qualities of Virginia tobacco were selected and test smoked. Finally, a handful of these were selected for inclusion in the blend.

Once the right basic tobaccos had been found, a final important element was added to the mixture: a small measure of original Mac Baren Cavendish was added, and it is this which gives Navy Flake its full body.

The production process starts like any flake tobacco. The selected tobaccos are mixed and then pressed in a large tobacco press. Patience was to prove a virtue, as the pressed tobacco had to be left under pressure for at least 30 days.

Once the 30 days had passed, there was a thrill of anticipation as the pressed tobacco block was carefully cut into 1.4 mm thick slices – so-called flakes.

Tasting Notes

In the blend are Burley, Cavendish and Virginia, which can be tasted through the casing and topping of rum, honey and cinnamon among others. This is certainly a well-balanced conflate of flavours that are sure to please. The Virginias are grassy, sweet and venerable, the Burley proves nuttiness and the Cavendish condiment compliments the added flavourings.

Pleasantly surprised with this Flake, upon opening the Foil sealed pack I was hit with Bourbon Whiskey followed by Black Cherry and finally a Vanilla aroma, smelled good enough to eat. Placed a Flake on a piece of printing paper to dry out for 20 minutes as it was a slightly moist, crumbled it up and packed my Pipe. Burns slow and very cool, I had to relight due to wandering off into a daydream, very moreish to say the least. Room note is very pleasing to all that got a whiff, my Aunt said, you smell nice, what is that you have on, I said its Mac Baron Classic Flake, she laughed saying it was very nice indeed. Big smiles all round (O_O)
