|Room Note||2 - Mellow|
Golden Extra has been a staple in the Mac Baren Classics lineup for a long time and its popularity is easy to explain. Mellow, nutty Burley is treated with a distinctive flavor and pressed, sliced and tumbled out to deliver a tamed but tasty smoke with an excellent aroma. One of their most popular blends, Golden Extra has been a fan favorite for generations.
Comes a bit too moist, but a bit of drying improves its smoking properties. Can't taste the Virginia, but enjoyed the sweet and smoky flavor of natural burley. Excellent value.
Been smoking this for over 30 years and, although it's described as an aromatic, I never really considered it one. It's mellow and a favorite standby that's been consistent over the years. It can bite if smoked too quickly so sit back, relax and enjoy and old time favorite.
