Mac Baren 7 Seas Black

Mac Baren’s 7 Seas Black is a toasted Cavendish, but unlike most American versions, Virginia is used as the base tobacco, which gives it more natural sweetness than the Burley-based types. Dark fruit and cream notes make this a winner across the board. Make sure you add Mac Baren's 7 Seas to your daily line up with your favorite briar.

Best of the 7 Seas blends
Cool, flavorful smoke. Flavors of dark fruits and honey. If you are a fan of CB Dark you in to yourself to try this. In fact this one has richer tobacco flavor than the CB. One of my favorite automatics.

Great Taste
McBaren 7 seas is a great tasteing Aromatic with mainly a Vanilla taste and a hint of Fruit. It burns well, but if smoked to fast it will definitely bite your tongue. It burns well producing a thick creamy smoke. For me it’s a tobacco to smoke when you want something different and not a all day smoke.

Great taste and smell.
I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed this brand. I got it as part of one of the sampler deals and was very happy I took the chance on it. I will be ordering more. It has a great aroma, a nice mellow black cavendish taste, with a hint of spice and very low bite.

My new favorite
This is now my go to favorite aromatic blend. Hints of vanilla and spice make this rich, smooth, smoke stand out as one of best tasting blends I've had the pleasure of smoking. Great for relaxing on the patio with a glass of scotch. I highly recommend this blend.

A European approximation of an american tobacco blend
I sampled all 5 blends of the 7 Seas line. It was like ordering an "American style" cheeseburger in New Zealand and finding beet slices instead of pickles within (true story). There are good points to the 7 Seas blends: not too wet, lights easily, burns at a medium rate; not hot, and the tin art is beautiful. But the flavor is just....odd. Like trying foreign fruit from another part of the world...and deciding you never want it again.

I didn't particularly care for it. Too strong, harsh for me.

I enjoyed this although it needs to be dried out a little before smoking. The flavors are like a silky smooth crème liquor.

Slightly sweet, mild smoke. Nice for rotation but leaves me wanting a blend with a little more body sometimes.

Standard to Judge other Tobaccos
I'm fairly new to pipes and am still trying a variety of pipe tobaccos. After smoking a full bowl of each of the MacBaren 7 Seas (minus Red because I don't like cherry), I tossed out the other tobaccos I had. The bar has been raised!

A One-Time Buy
This blend burns well. It is not overpowering. It has a light sweetness on the tip of the toungue, but not much more in terms of flavor. The room note is pleasing. If this blend were a person, its conversation would be limited to small talk.

7 seas black
It is a little bit harsh on the tongue but not to bad. It does smoke good and down to a fine powder though. I also bought the 7 seas royal blend,and i like it much better.

I'm not into Aeromatics.
Decent tobacco with a flavor of liquor, possibly Brandy, to it? Not for me though.

Kind of damp when it arrived. Tends to have an aftertaste, not a lot but noticeable. Letting it dry some before retrying. Mild, Nice smoke, but will probably stay with my Lane BCA and RLP.

Good Stuff
It's dark and mysterious. Real smooth. Hard to light but once it lit it stays that way.

Dark and Sweet
Absolutely wonderful taste, and cool burning as mentioned by others. My powers of description are not all that, so I won't really try to describe flavor. If you are looking for something smooth, sweet with a great room note, you can't go wrong.

Good smooth smoke
Upon opening the sac of jet black goodness, it reminded me of a sweet ocean smell.In a good way,not a dead whale on low tide way.Amaretto,licorice,vanilla,chocholate whatever anybody else might be smelling ,I am reminded of being a kid in New England traveling to the Cape .When you start getting close,you smell the ocean.Out of the sac it is a little moist but still burns with a very enjoyable, rich, buttery smoke without bite.

Seaworthy, but a little waterlogged
A good middle of the road aromatic blend. Its a lot like a more upscale version of Captain Black. Nothing extraordinary or too dull about it. It was a little too moist for my tastes when I first got it, so I air dried it a little to reduce the risk of tounge bite and it improved the flavor immensely. Take heed to remember that the Cavendish in this in this blend is made from Virginia tobacco which has a tendency to bite easily so smoke it slow. I bought a pound of it and experimented with half of it by mixing a little perique in at a ratio of 3:1 to spice it up and give it the nicotene 'oomph' I like and further reduced its bite. Takes it from a dark creamy fruity taste to a dark spiced rum.

Rich, Rounded, Delicious.
I'm a relative newbie, only been a pipe smoker for 3+ years now, but I love this tobacco. I have probably tried twenty-five to thirty tobaccos from this site and others, and this is the first time I have ordered more of the same tobacco. I've been looking for a rich, deep, "old fashioned" smoke, and this one has it all: a treat for the nose before you even light it; a smooth smoke with tons of character and it doesn't get too hot. I know taste is very subjective but for what it's worth, I think this one is a gem.

Very smooth smoke.
This is a mild and cool smoke. I found no bite and my pipe stayed cool with each bowl full. The flavor was well balanced and the nicotine level was low enough to encourage a relaxed feeling. I will order more in the future.

Mac Baren 7 Seas Black 7 Seas Black
I'm pretty new to the pipe scene but thought I'd give some input anyway. As others have said, this tobacco is very moist from the start. Once you break the seal it doesn't take long for it to tone down. As far as smoking, I loved it! I've burned several bowls now and each one has been very enjoyable. I would buy again if there weren't so many other tobaccos/flavors to try!

a very pleasant experience
Very pleasant note upon opening. Starts with an amaretto flavor (the reason I bought it), later in the bowl I started tasting the licorice. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Very Nice, Mellow, Silky Smooth Smoke with Gentle Complexity and Great Flavor
This is the first time I have tried this tobacco. Opening the tin, you are presented with a chocolate, vanilla and what I would describe as like a Bailey's Irish Cream/Other creamy liqueur aroma. It is a very rich and a VERY pleasing smell. I could sit and just smell the tin and be content. One thing I noticed right away was how moist it seemed. Compared to other tobaccos, this had a very dense and moist feel in my fingertips. It was easy to pack, but not so easy to light, I imagine because it was so moist. With a Zippo pipe lighter, it probably took about a minute to get it lit sufficiently. Once I got it lit though...oh it was SO smooth. Drawing it into my mouth was silky smooth and moist and carried with it great flavor and texture. The way it drew in, lingered and then exhaled was so smooth. It almost had a weight to it and you could feel the smoke glide out of your mouth and over your lips. A very pleasing and relaxing sensation. The smoke itself had great flavor. Mostly I could subtly taste the chocolate/liqueur flavor and once it heated up, it had a wonderful hint of citrus-like flavor. The deeper you drew, the stronger the citrus flavor became. As the smoke progressed, I noticed a mellow walnut-ish flavor. It was very mellow and never became overwhelming and never really grew in intensity once it was there. This is the type of flavor I notice with other tobaccos that tends to be the lingering aftertaste that isn't so pleasing after a while, but this flavor lasts for only a short while and doesn't leave the less-pleasing aftertaste that other tobaccos can leave. As far as the room note, I smoke outside and it was slightly breezy, so I didn't get a chance to really enjoy it to its fullest potential, but it was pleasant from what I could tell and should be pleasing to most others around you (my wife and son enjoyed it). It smoked cleanly and completely, despite how moist it was. I was prepared for a sticky mess, but there was none.

Great smoke!
I enjoyed the hearty flavor! This is a good afternoon or evening smoke.
Customer Testimonials
This blend had no flavor at all to it but charred smoke. It had quite a bit of bite and took many relights. I will be going back to lane bca.
As a newbie take this with a grain of salt, but I was just not impressed with this blend. I bought this along with Peter St. No. 47 Dansk Black, Sutliff Vanilla Custard, Cult Blood Red Moon & CAO Eileens Dream (and I like them in that order with this blend my least favorite). This blend just seemed to have no flavor at all to it but charred smoke. It had quite a bit of bite and took many relights. Blah!
Good body and easy to light. However there seams to be a very cheap and wet chemical taste that comes out.
I smoke this in my Peterson Dracula and have always liked it. The tin note is a sweet dark chocolate with a hint of fruit. The taste is similar to dark chocolate but with a warm buttery hint. Its almost like Ole Shenendoah to me.
I am a huge aromatics fan, it's mostly what I smoke. I especially love the dark aromatics so this one does not disappoint! Great aroma! It smokes nice and smooth with no tongue bite! Now one of my favorites!
