It has a very premium, luxurious feel.
Recommended for all those who like flakes of this style.
I might have to update this review after having experimented a bit more with this tobacco, if I learn how to domesticate the second half of the bowl into a more reliable smoke.

Evidently, 8 months ago I had decided to try it, bought a tin, and promptly forgot about.
Although it does light off a little easier that way.
After having read all of the reviews for Mac Barens HH Old Dark Fired, I bought two pounds of the stuff straight-away.
The taste is full, but not overwhelming.
It gives off a chocolatey nutty taste, but not in the cheap topped aromatic sense.
A good robust smoke!
