The flakes are easy to pack and load. Just rub some of the flake and it crumbles into the bowl and darned near packs itself. Smoke it late in the evening AFTER kissing the spousal unit goodnight. Otherwise, you may get kicked out of the bed. I have 1 tin still available for $16

MM2 – McClelland’s popular Legends in 50g tins that are second year 2011 production and the invention of Dr. Fred Hanna after he experimented for 10-years before getting the components just right. I could not wait to try Legend when it came out as I knew Dr. Hanna was (and still is) an excellent writer and philosopher. But, could he blend tobacco? The answer is YOU BETCHA! The Latakia is dominant but the extras are expertly put together to make this tobacco truly shine. This Latakia offering has more strength (a good thing!) than most, and is gentle without any harshness. I think the Orientals in this blend provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the overall presentation. Fred won the Dr. of Pipe award at the Year 2010 Chicago Show. He could well win Dr. of Tobacco with this entry! I have 1 of these 5-year old tins still available for $16

SA2 – Also a competitor in the Chicago Pipe Show’s year 2011 Throwdown, this was the People’s Choice Award winner as the blend most resembling the old Balkan Sobranie 759. Latakia, Orientals and Virginia leaf was masterfully put together by McClelland’s co-owner Mike McNiel and it swayed the people to his side! This tin is factory dated to 2014 and sells for $16 – SOLD


MM2 – Same blend as above but a different consignor. A competitor in the Chicago Pipe Show’s year 2011 Throwdown, this was the People’s Choice Award winner as the blend most resembling the old Balkan Sobranie 759. Latakia, Orientals and Virginia leaf was masterfully put together by McClelland’s co-owner Mike McNiel and it swayed the people to his side! This tin is factory dated to 2014 and sells for $16 – SOLD


SA2 – Sillem’s 100g tin of Schwarz/Black that was made in 2012. The main ingredient is the spicy and smoky Cyprian Latakia. By adding highly aromatic Black Cavendish, this blend becomes smoother. A small portion of Burley gives a slight toasted aroma, and a pinch of bright Virginia brings a subtle sweet note. Mellow, but yet full-bodied aromas of honey and fruit essences result in a unique flavor. Just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD


DT2 – C&D’s Consolation in a first year production 2 oz tin that is factory dated all the way back to 2002, giving the contents almost 15-years of aging. An elegant form of the old HOW Barking Dog as William Serad, whom I think is an excellent blender, made sure to have a Virginia rather than Burley base for this one and it shows as it is sweeter than if he had used Burley. The Latakia presence is there but in the background in order not to interfere with the overall presentation. Not a strong blend but not limp wristed either, and has a firm taste. This ripe old tin sells for $18 – SOLD


TA2 – From C&D, this is a 2 oz tin of Red Stag that is factory dated to 2012, giving the leaf within a solid almost 5-years of fermentation and ripening. According to www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Red and Golden Virginias provide a pleasant base for this medium-strength English.

An excellent all round medium English, Red Stag is a nicely balanced and very well rounded blend.” Just 1 tin available for $14


TA2 – From C&D, this is a 2 oz tin of Black Duck that is factory dated to 2013, giving the leaf within a solid almost 4-years of fermentation and ripening. According to www.tobaccoreviews.com – “Richly earthy and woodsy, this blend of unsweetened brown and black Cavendish (specially cured Kentucky Burley), Latakia and Turkish Oriental leaf is a hearty full-bodied blend indeed. Certainly not an elegant smoke, it is nonetheless charming and rather complex once the initial surprise at its strength and earthiness subsides.” Just 1 tin available for $14

FT2 – Former’s Straight Grain Flake in a 50g tin that is dated back to 2006. As described by www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A really full bodied but amazingly smooth dark flake tobaqcco prepared from traditional English recipes and methods. A good pinch of mellow yet spicy Perique brings out the rich flavor of Former’s Straight Grain Flake.” Just this 1 decade old tin is available for $16


MP2 – Mac Baren’s super popular HH Old Dark Fired first year 2012 production 100g tins. 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 leaf was stout and palate fulfilling. The Virginia was in the background and slightly sweetened the overall presentation. The taste was 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 department. Personally, I think this is one of Mac Baren’s finest offerings. I have 1 tin still available for $20

PH2 – Mac Baren’s highly acclaimed an now no longer produced Burley London Blend in a a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is early to mid 1990’s old Swisher Import era production.

There was a discreet, but very special top flavor added to give the smoke a very “special” smoke indeed. Just 1 tin available for $35

PB2 – Mac Baren’s highly acclaimed an now no longer produced Burley London Blend in 3-1/2 ounce tins that are factory dated to 2011 & 2012.

PH2 – Mac Baren’s highly acclaimed Plumcake in a 3-1/2 ounce tin that is early to mid 1990’s old Swisher Import era production. And check out the “Tamper Inside” marketing scheme employed. So, you get great tobacco AND a Mac Baren’s pipe tamper to boot! As described on www.tobaccoreviews.com – “A mixture of fully ripe Virginia tobaccos, sliced, cask mellowed Burley tobaccos, dark spicy Cavendish and just a touch of Latakia. To give Plumcake an elegant aroma the blend has been flavored with aged Jamaica Rum.” This rare tin is available for $35 – SOLD

VS2 – Mac Baren’s popular Virginia #1 in a 3-1/2 ounce tin hat is factory dated to 2008. A long-time classic from Mac Baren, Virginia No. 1 is loaded to the gills with quality cask Virginia aged flavor enhanced with a topping that is similar to that of Mac Baren’s Navy Flake. In fact, it may be the same honey like topping, but the application to this totally different style tobacco made it a unique experience for me. Probably one of the finer Virginia aromatics ever to hit the market. Not a lot of strength, but plenty of depth of flavor that leads me to see why this is one of Mac Baren’s top sellers. I have 1 tin available for $25 – SOLD


TA2 – Mac Baren Original Choice 3-1/2 ounce tin that is factory dated to 2012, giving the contents close to 5-years of ripening in the tin. I will recommend this one to the pipe smoking hobbyists among us who don’t care for a lot of tobacco flavor or nicotine and have a sweet tooth. Additionally, you can choo-choo train this one with your puffing cadence and never blister your waggle. It is a blend of Virginia tobacco from North Carolina and mild, air-dried Burley from Tennessee. Just 1 tin available for $18 – SOLD

TA2 – Factory dated back to 2012, these are 3-1/2 ounce tins of Mac Baren’s Navy Mixture. This blend was introduced in 1989 and then discontinued in 2014, so, this one is no longer available. From the www.tobaccoreviews.com website – “An exclusive and satisfying blend, manufactured from high class, full ripe Virginia and matured Burley tobaccos, rounded by a tasty, dark Cavendish.” I have 3 tins available for $18 per tin
