MP2 – Two Friends Celtic Mist in a tightly vacuum sealed 4 oz bag with no date on it but I am told by the owner it is at least 10-years old and these bags were produced for a short time after Greg Pease and Craig Tarler teamed up to produce their “Two Friends” blends. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A base of the highest grades of Cavendish, with just a bit of Burley, is enhanced with wonderfully sweet Virginia tobaccos.

ST2 – Mac Baren’s long out of production and highly acclaimed HH Mature Virginia in 3-1/2 ounce tins that are factory dated to 2012, giving the multiple combinations of ripe and rich leaf within a healthy 5-years of aging. As eloquently described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Twenty-two different tobaccos are included in this blend and of these 15 are Virginia tobaccos. Before blending the tobacco, the Virginias was stored for years to mature and develop. Virginia types like bright yellow/golden leaf, mature red/mahogany leaf, dark Virginia and a Black Virginia Cavendish were blended and long stored so that each tobacco would meld with the other. To enhance and support the Virginias a touch of Oriental is added and finally the taste is rounded with just an easy hand of pressed Burley for strength.” Discontinued in 2014 due to the difficulty in finding the quality leaf needed and the prep time, but I have 1 tin still available for the bargain price of $45


MP2 – This is the original Mac Baren Latakia Blend Straight Broad Cut in a 2 oz tin that is 1970’s or early 1980’s Fireside Industries import. This blend was originally produced in 1964, but now the blend is a curly cut rather than broad cut. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – ” A “roll cake” tobacco, spun from well matured Virginia and Cavendish with a special touch of Latakia, bringing out a fresh and wonderful aroma. This old classic sells for $35


ST2 – Another Mac Baren’s bell ringer, this is a 100g tin of HH Old Dark Fired in perfect, vacuum sealed condition. A very nice and bold tobacco. The steaming of the leaf certainly took away any tendency for there to be a bite to the leaf and the earthy flavor of the dark fired Burley is stout and palate fulfilling. The Virginia is in the background and slightly sweetened the overall presentation. The taste is certainly on the high side of medium and I am sure the decades old Burley employed is what makes this one very noticeable in the strength and smoothness department. Personally, I think this is one of Mac Baren’s finest offerings. I have just 1 tin available for $20


GH2 – W.O. Larsen Old Fashioned in a 100g tin with no date info, but made at least 10-12 years ago when these larger presentation tins ceased production. As detailed on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A blend of Virginia and Burley leaf that has been selected from the best tobacco fields in the world. No effort has been spared as one part of the blend has been pressed into cakes and aged, while the other part is finished in different cuts.

This tobacco gives the blend the overall smoky taste, a powerful taste and yet without any tongue bite. To add a spicy note to the blend, Turkish Oriental has been added. A mix of different Virginia tobaccos from 3 continents adds a sweet natural taste. To complete the taste with depth and body, we added a little Dark Fired Kentucky from the US.” I have 2 tins available for $45 per tin


LG2 – Benjamin Hartwell’s well received Chesdin Mixture that is in a 50g tin that is factory dated all the way back to 1997, giving the contents a wonderful 20-years of aging. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Rich, Smooth Latakia Blend – Benjamin Hartwell’s Inn was the Quail’s Breath. The specialty was wild game. Ben traveled deep into the woods to hunt and fish.

This tin sells for $22

TA2 – Gawith & Hoggarth’s Top Black Cherry in a 50g tin that is dated either 2007 or 2009.

FT2 – Benjamin Hartwell’s Chesdin in 50g tins that are factory dated all the way back to 1999, giving the contents a good 18-years of aging. I smoked a several years old tin of this one a couple of years ago and found Chesdin to be a very fine smoke with no rough edges. The Latakia was nice and smokey and the Virginia leaf seemed to have grassy undertones. There was a little strength in this blend due to the Virginia leaf, and I rather liked the subtle sweetness the Latakia provided (along the same line as the McClelland Froggie blends).
