Hearth and Home Tobacco Review

My impressions of this tobacco. I've also made a video of the Hearth and Home Tobacco Review on my YouTube channel with a link next to the name or on the image of the tin.

Hearth and Home Tobaccos are not available in South Africa. Enjoy and please leave comments of your impressions.  

- Black House (Video Review)

General description: The winning blend from the Chicagoland Pipe Show 2011. We're proud to introduce Black House. This blend is a tribute to a great tobacco of the past. Made for the 2011 contest it was judged to be the closest overall to the dark balkan-type mixture it was designed to emulate. For you Virginia Heads it's loaded along with Kentucky, Balkans, Turkish, and even a smattering of Black Cavendish. (1) An Balkan blend by Russ Oulette of Black Cavendish, Kentucky, Latakia, Oriental/Turkish, Virginia. My Hearth and Home Tobacco Review: In the tin: A complex smell of oriental, incense-like with notes of earthiness, smokiness, woody and a hint of cocoa beans. Just a touch of sweet flavours too. Taste: On first lit, it was just a wonderful balanced taste of Oriental/English. Mellow Latakia but surely English/Oriental. Sounds like a contradiction but its not; just shows how well balanced all the different components are. hearth and home tobacco review black house
