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 Virginia Flake

Virginia Flake is a tobacco with a unique character that gives unparalleled pleasure. As a flake tobacco, one of its inherent qualities is that it burns slowly and evenly, leaving you with the pleasure of doing nothing, but sitting back and enjoying the flavour experience.

Virginia Flake contains what many pipe smokers desire; a slow burning tobacco with a sweet, slightly fruity flavour that also tends to gain approval from others close by.

The natural sugar content and aromatic substances in the raw tobacco must be 100% harmonised for Virginia Flake to deliver the unique, special experience that can only be found in this blend. To complete the blend, a few different specially selected Burley tobaccos are added.

To complete the blend, a few different specially selected Burley tobaccos are added.

The blend is pressed according to a time-honoured tradition. Flake tobacco is like fine wine: if nature’s raw materials are not allowed sufficient time to develop and mature, the result is less than optimal. That is why the production of flake tobacco is a time consuming and costly process, albeit one that is essential to bringing out its best qualities.

Virginia Flake is exquisite enough to be considered a connoisseurs’ tobacco. Smoking a good tobacco is not something reserved for the privileged few. Virginia Flake can be enjoyed by all pipe smokers.

Tasting Notes

There's nothing more satisfying than smelling a tobacco fresh from the packaging and this is no exception. Grassy, fruity, ripe Virginia.

Visually, the flakes are a bright golden colour with a darker grain running through lengthways.

They are easy to prepare, rubbing out well and of good moisture content, so loading and lighting happens almost effortlessly.

Strength: 2/5
Aromatic Taste: 2/5
Room Note: 3/5

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)
