McBaren Vanilla Cream is a pipe tobacco that is, as the name tells, flavoured with vanilla. It has quite a basic tobacco taste with hints of vanilla. The vanilla could not be tasted in a loosely rolled cigarette, but tasted well in a tightly rolled cigarette (that is, in a cigarette that is as tight as you can make by hand, not machine-tight.) It has a sweet, sweet aftertaste that I really like. Maybe I should try this one in a pipe to see if vanilla could be tasted stronger in that format.
I invested extra 80 cents to get some Smart Red rolling tobacco instead of the usual Bonus Red and I cannot be sure if I could tell the difference.
Overall, I liked this combination, in a tightly rolled cigarette.
