|Tobacco||Dark Fired Kentucky, Virginia|
|Room Note||4 - Distinct|
Introducing the biggest and boldest pipe tobacco ever made by the venerable Mac Baren factory - HH Bold Kentucky.
Top quality dark-fired Kentucky from the US and Africa are combined with some sugary bright Virginia to balance the earthy smokiness with a touch of sweetness. These select tobaccos are then hot-pressed to marry the flavors. The bricks are then sliced into deep brown flakes for easy preparation. The taste is unabashedly bold, full of smoke and spice and it's a heady experience, best suited for enjoying after a hearty meal. If you're looking for a robust, natural-tasting pipe tobacco, look no further than HH Bold Kentucky.
The tin note was of the Dark Fired Kentucky a rich earthy tobacco aroma with touch of vinegar. The tobacco straight from the tin seemed a little damp and may need a little drying, but I could not wait for my first bowl. 30 minutes drying time made a difference in lighting the tobacco and the burn rate, but did not change the flavor profile. On the charring light the nuttiness of the Dark Fired Kentucky was the main flavor. On the true light the flavor of the Virginias came into the flavor profile. The sweetness of Virginias was subtle and it does enhance the flavor of this blend. In all this blend is a smooth and creamy full flavored smoke, but not over powering. Bold Kentucky burned well leaving a light gray ash with no dottle. Mac Baren has hit this one out of the park. If you smoke full flavored blends this is a must try.
