I am not a fan of most pure Virginas or VaPers that I've tried, but this one sounds interesting and I found a 10 year old tin for $40. What are the opinions on this one here?

Seems like it is not all Virginias. Otherwise, it might be rather tasty!

Yes, that's why I thought it sounded interesting. Jiminks and others give it 4 stars while several gave it one star. I was hoping to find more insight here.

I got a couple of tins of it some years back. I thought it was pretty smooth and typical of the effort Mac Baren puts into the HH lines. I don't know why it was discontinued. Maybe it wasn't that fast a mover? I did enjoy it, but I wasn't smoking it very often.

I think this was one that got swept under in the whole Mac Baren ďredefining the HH seriesĒ thing, where they eliminated anything that had a flavoring from the series. This blend and HH Highland were tossed aside

I used to like when it was available. Sadly I've smoked all I had put away in my stash. I don't think I'd pay $40.00 for it. It was good but not that good. YMMV! Smile

I found it smelled real weird. Like Kalamata olives. The taste was surprisingly pleasant; but it became really bity and I couldn't understand why - it had 3 or 4 years of aging, so...I never finished the tin.

You're a Virginia smoker??!! Shocked

Thanks for the offer bro, very nice of you as always, but sounds like a hard pass on this one.

I was introduced to it when I was bombed with it a couple of years ago. I liked it enough that, knowing it was out of production, I stockpiled some. I still have several tins left. It's not a typical Virginia, but I enjoy the somewhat funky tin aroma and the combination of flavors it delivers.

I like the blend, too, but I wasn't able to stock before it disappeared.

I went through an unmemorable pound of the stuff a few years back. Meh. Neutral
