Mac Baren HH Old Dark Fired

HH Old Dark Fired has quickly become a high-demand classic. An excellent selection of fine Virginias is wed to robust and spice dark-fired Burleys. The tobaccos are firmly pressed using heat and steam to fully develop the deep rich flavors and to fully marry the leaf. Although the flavor of the dark-fired carries the blend, the sweetness of the Virginias makes this a rich and harmonious experience.

I didn't find this one to be overwhelming at all, strong and full flavor without the gut punch of some of the other strong tobaccos. It has a sweet tangy taste that becomes stronger as the bowl progresses, without overloading my taste buds, but I do recommend a glass of water to sip on while enjoying this smoke as it is very dry. It is a flake, but I've found that I enjoy it best fully rubbed out in a medium bowl. It is definitely a quality tobacco.
Vitamin N and burley give a very nice lift anytime of the day.
Love this blend. One of my staples. The only problem I have with it is that it disappears too quickly.
New to pipe smoking. Have become familiar with the various types of tobacco and their flavors. I think I have found my favorite style, dark fired burley with virginias. Great full tobacco taste and it seems to burn very slow extending your smoking pleasure.
Nothing new to say here except that this blend has got me all "fired" up about heavily cured Virginias. I bought the 1 lb. box which should age nicely. I'm inspired to try McC's line of matured Virginia.
Wow. This is the first flake tobacco I have tried (and a first burley blend), so I don't know if I can compare it to other flake cut tobaccos. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed it! A pleasantly cool smoke that smokes better and better as you get down the bowl. It's got a full, smooth taste, along with deep, billowing smoke. I found it to give me quite an extra nicotine rush that I don't get from other full-bodied blends. I would highly recommend any pipe smoker to get their hands on this great baccy.
Bought a tin of this from my local cigar shop brought it home only to find the seal broken....smoked it anyways and boy is it GOOD! I like Petersons Irish flake so if you like Irish flake you should DEFINATELY try this while supplies last.
This is absolutely a beautiful blend of dark fired burleys and slightly sweet virginias. I love burley and this is going to be a go to for me along with Solani Aged Burley Flake for a long, long time. It is certainly strong and full bodied but I love deep, earthy slightly sweet and smooth taste of dark fired burleys and virginias. Recommend for those who love old fashioned blends.
Hands down, one of my favorite pipe tobaccos. Very full and rich, deep tobacco taste, but not overwhelming in the nicotine department. If you like Peterson's Irish Flake, but are not in the mood to get punched in the face by nicotine, this tobacco is for you. Excellent quality leaf is used, which is immediately apparent upon lighting this tobacco. Highly recommended!!!
This seemed a little harsh at first but quickly improved as I worked my way through the first bowl. Very tasty and pleasant. I am still a novice with flakes, which is why I likely had to relight a few times. All in all - a very enjoyable smoke.
I'm on my 5th pound of this great flake.
ODF is one that I ALWAYS have on hand. I love it! The burly is nutty and plum, with just a little sweetness from the VA. Just the right amount of tin moisture. Not harsh, and I don't get much of a nic hit from it. This is my "any time of day" smoke that I look forward to! Side note: I was riding in the work van with my co-worker the other day. We both had our pipes. He lit up first and I had to ask him what he was smoking, b/c the "room" note was amazing! He said "some of the (Old) Dark Fired you gave me." :) That was the first time I'd smelled it not from my pipe.
Reviewer DD nailed it, nutty & plum, i can't add much to it. Filled my cob with the strips broken into shards and a layer rubbed out on top (forms nice coal bed). Smoked slow with light tamping yeilded a consistent flavor from char to finish. I open a new tin, then close it & let sit for a week or two and moisture is perfect. Purchased 10 tins back in 2012 for aging. Tried it when order was first received, enjoyed it, but felt the VA needed a little aging. Age well it did! inded.
