Mac Baren Mixture Scottish

MacBaren’s Mixture Scottish is a blend, made from ready rubbed, fully-matured Virginia and golden brown Burleys, to which toasted Cavendish and unpressed Virginia has been added. Wonderfully aromatic, but not overwhelming, it’s the go-to tobacco for many discriminating pipe smokers.

The next best thing
I was a huge fan of "Scottish Ribbon" from the now defunct Connoisseur Pipe Shop in NYC. MacBaren's Scottish Mixture (loose) is the next best thing. In fact, it was suggested by a fellow pipe smoking acquaintance that the shop used this mixture and re-labeled it. Great flavor and cut, and just aromatic enough to satisfy the needs of the smoker who prefers English blends and wants to go aro to switch things up. MacB's never disappoints.

Good shipment
Received order of two tins of Mac-Baren tobacco in a timely way. Plumcake was on back order, though. Hope it is back in stock soon.

Hoot man....Hoot
This is my first venture into Mac Baren tobacco and from the enjoyment of this won't be my last. Moisture is perfect....great natural taste with real tobacco flavor. Great with a morning cup of coffee to start the day. Also great in the evening with a nice single malt. I recommend you try this.

Good Stuff!
A pleasing blend of homogenous flavors. In my opinion, while described as an aromatic, it is not overpowering. It can burn a little hot if smoked too quickly. Great as a relaxing slow evening smoke, or for that fact, an all day smoke. I believe that this will find its way into my cache of permanent tobaccos. Even if your preference is non-aromatics, give this a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised as was I.

Nice smoke
Coming feom a person that prefers non aros, This is a nice smoking aromatic. What I enjoy about this tobacco is there is no added flavors drowning out the other tobaccos. This smokes a little on the hot side and I noticed I needed to slow it down a tad. The flavor is very nice, nice hint of citrus with a slight plum taste and nice spice. The flavors of this tobacco compliment eachother very well. The room note is alright, nothing crazy good smelling, but a decent mellow note. This is one I will keep in my rotation.

An aromatic with a difference
So what do you like in a tobacco? Well until I had this blend I would have said that in aromatics, I prefer sweet flavorings that lean toward chocolate or other confections. So when I opened my bag from P&C and smelled the sourness that is almost cloying, I was worried. While sweet, I find this blend to have a sour almost fermented note and taste that is a bit startling at first. For me, within just a few bowls I found myself craving that sourness, especially in the evenings. I smoke a pretty wide variety of aromatics, and while each has its own nuances, many are very similar- Capt. Black Reg, Lane 1Q, Lane RLP-6, Scottys Butternut Burley, Trout Stream- all are close siblings in my book. This blend is different, and I think it is the sour/fermented note that does it. You'll either love it or hate it, but you should try it if you like aros. I get NO bite from this even if I rush, and that is saying something because I can even make Butternut Burley bite if I am in a hurry. The longer I have this on my shelf, the more I find myself reaching for it. If you are looking for an aromatic that isn't in the same immediate family as 1Q, Capt Black and Butternut Burley, give this one a shot. Your milage may vary, but right now, this is a 5-star blend for me.

Great Mild Aromatic
This is a great tobacco. To be honest, this doesn't really have the taste of a traditional aromatic for me. It has a cedar-y woodsy flavor that is quite natural and very subtle. It's certainly a dry, cool, relaxing smoke.

Good stuff.
I haven't smoked the Scottish mixture in many years, decades perhaps, and gave it a try for a walk down amnesia lane. As with just about all Mac Baren's, this was a quality smoke. It lighted easily, stayed lit, and burned to fine ash in the bottom of the bowl. Although I enjoyed it, and finished all I bought, I found that it just didn't suit my tastes. Perhaps this is because I've moved into the heavier Latkia tobaccos for everyday use. I'll give it five stars for quality and smoke-ability, it just won't find a place in my regular rotation. If you like Scottish type blends, or just want to branch out, I would highly recommend it.

MacBaren's Scottish Mixture
Great blend! Have smoked since my prep school days, and always found all the MacBaren's Blends outstanding. We featured them weekly at my tobacco shop {The Havana Room] at our Thursday night tastings.

Good with Scotch but Better with Irish Whskey
A good blend puff light and rub out before lighting. Close to Symphony but a fuller smoke. The good typical Mac Baren Aroma little Sour but sweat. Always good nicotine level. This blend is good with Scotch but better with Irish whiskey.

A very enjoyable smoke...
I am not a fan of aromatic blends in general but this blend is a pleasant departure from the goopy mess in the bowl, fingers not sticky from topping, good honest tobacco flavor with a very pleasant room note. I have a Royal Danish that I dedicated to this blend because of its deep but narrow preference of course. I recommend rubbing out the big pieces and let it air dry for 1/2 hr before smoking...not too tight in the bottom and go somewhat is after all a Mac Barens blend and if pushed too hard, will bite.

A nice moment
I don't care much for aromatics because they can be too sweet, but Scottish Mixture is nice evening moment. Always rubbed out and air dried about 20-30 minutes just before. Smokey smooth.

A great Tobacco!
An excellent consistent tobacco. I have enjoyed this blend for forty+ years. It can be hard to find at regular pipe shops. I am so happy I have found Pipes&Cigars online to supply this favorite blend.
Customer Testimonials
This is currently my favorite tobacco, and I can see how the other reviewers go months without smoking anything but Mixture. Regardless of what your go-to smoke is, every pipe smoker needs to give this at least 3 bowls before moving on. It’s an incredibly satisfying smoke with good body and smooth mouthfeel. I know it’s technically an aromatic, but I have a hard time thinking of it that way. I’d liken the experience and aroma (not necessarily the taste) to freshly baked whole grain bread. The Virginias in the ready-rubbed flake are the star, but the burley and cavendish give it warm, toasty undertones. The balance of bright and warm is perfect with a hint of sweetness and creaminess. You definitely have to smoke it slowly to get the full beauty of the flavor. Like everyone says, you get something slightly different each time depending on how you pack, which is just enough variation to keep it interesting, yet the flavor remains surprisingly consistent and distinct. It’s unfortunate others have experienced some bite—it hasn’t bitten me once, but then I’ve been smoking it in smaller, narrower bowls. It burns well to a clean, fine, white ash all the way to the bottom of the bowl.
Wonderfully smooth! Enjoyed this all last winter, plan on doing the same this year.
Pretty good stuff! I think I detected a slight fruity aroma and taste while I smoked it.
