Golden Extra is a tobacco that will appeal to a smoker looking for a full-bodied, natural taste/smoke with a pleasant but not obtrusive aroma. It has a clean, slow,consistent burn and does not get overly wet, as many tobaccos do, when getting close to the bottom of the bowl. For a smoker who does not like the taste and smell of the heavy aromatic blends, this is a quality tobacco that is highly recommended.

I try to judge a tobacco on its own merits and not in comparison with others though admittedly, I'm not always successful. Golden Extra is a broken flake, slightly sweet in tin aroma with perhaps a hint of honey. Room note is mild, smoky, and pleasant. A rich, nutty aroma, while not consistent, is an occasional plus for the smoker. The Mac Baren heat or bite found in some of their other tobaccos is absent. For a Burley lover, this could be an every day smoke. Excellent with a cup of coffee. Recommended.

This is some good stuff. I recommend this for those smokers who like a natural taste tobacco. This doesn't have a lot of casing but it smells great out of the tin. To me, it has a traditional character. For those who like Orlik Golden Slice, this is similar. GE has a sweeter taste with some hayish flavor as well. First bowl, I loved it. Great combination of burleys and virginias. Great Tobacco overall! If you are looking for something more dynamic, this would probably be boring for you, but for those who like virginias and burleys in flake, you would like this. Ready rubbed in my opinion burns liked a rubbed out flake. The casing isn't overpowering although you can detect it in the flavor. Towards the end of the bowl, it doesn't taste like ash like certain tobaccos do. It gave me no tongue bite although many complain of it. Great price, great product, recommended!

I have been smoking MacBaren's in my pipes since the mid 70's. It always has the same mild, cool taste. Buying it from you is often $3.00 less a tin, discounting shipping.
