Description Ref # 4415

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 Mixture (Scottish Blend)

When Mixture first appeared on the market in 1958, it was the object of much attention. Pipe smokers could now enjoy a finely balanced pipe tobacco offering a fine blend of tobacco leaves with a slightly aromatic flavour.

This was the result of many years of development, inspired by Jørgen Halberg’s great store of knowledge of tobacco leaves and the production of pipe tobacco.

Mixture is made from more than 35 different tobacco leaves from different parts of the world. Each leaf has its own special qualities and only by blending them in the right proportions does Mixture achieve its unique flavour.

Naturally, what goes into Mixture remains secret, although we can disclose some information. The loose cut tobacco in Mixture is light, sweet Virginia. One of the secrets behind the special pleasure that Mixture provides is that pressed Virginia and Burley tobaccos have been added, but they are broken up prior to being blended with the rest of the secret ingredients.

Our meticulous pressing process imparts new qualities to the tobaccos that would otherwise not exist. The breaking up of the pressed tobaccos makes it easier to fill your pipe, while giving Mixture the added advantage of burning slowly. In addition to the best Virginia and Burley tobaccos, there is another component that makes Mixture unique.

The loose cut Mac Baren Original Cavendish provides the final special touch. Contrasting the light Virginia tobacco, Original Cavendish is not only a joy to look at, it also gives Mixture the final nuance of taste that completes the blend. The carefully balanced aromatic top flavour, together with the tobacco leaves, makes Mixture a unique blend.

Tasting Notes

Mixture is easy to tamp down and when the pipe is lit a pleasant fragrance slowly spreads throughout the room which others will find agreeable.

 Mixture does not consist of one dominant taste, but a profusion of different nuances of flavour that keep changing – all from a single tamp of tobacco. Mixture is a mild tobacco with good body without being too strong.

This is an important reason why Mixture is the preferred brand among many pipe smokers worldwide and has been for many years.

Mixture has become one of the most important classics among pipe tobaccos of the world.

I suspect, like Marmite, this tobacco will divide opinion. Its extremely sweet and fruity, and, in my experience, burns a little hot. And yet its a delicious change from standard English blends. I love it. And the room note always proves popular.

Ive been a St. Bruno smoker for 35 years now, Ive tried various other tobaccos over this period, but always returned to good old St B. Recently, CGars ltd ran a promotion of a leather Tobacco pouch containing 25g of a Mystery tobacco, so I thought Id give it a try. Turns out, the mystery tobacco was this one (Cube) from Macbaren. From my first experience of this tobacco, it felt like my days of sticking with St Bruno, were over! Cube is an altogether more luxurious smoke than either St Bruno or anything else Ive experienced over the years. It has a massively complex flavour of Coffee/Cocoa/fruit, and a cool, silk-like experience in the mouth. The harshness I experience with St Bruno just prior to finishing a bowlful, is non-existent. According to my wife, the aroma is delightful too. The only slight negative is, its not as slow burning as St Bruno, however, this may be down to the fact the sample I received, did appear slightly dry. Ill continue to smoke St Bruno for the next few weeks, but in all honesty, Im treating this period as one of weaning myself off St Bruno and fully converting to Cube thenceforth. All-in, Cube has won me over. I cannot emphasise enough, just how fussy a pipe smoker I am, and the fact Ive stuck with St Bruno for so long, bears testimony to this fact, consequently, for me to be completely won over by an alternative to St Bruno, speaks volumes in itself!
