Firestone

Firsestorm is an intriguingly complex blend of especially sweet Virginias, a healthy amount of Perique, a bit of rich Turkish, and some fire-cured mahogany Kentucky. It starts off with a dark fruit sweetness and a current of cinnamon that builds gradually to become deep and peppery in the last half.

Whiteknight

Whiteknight is inspired by Russ Ouellette memories of Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture as it existed throughout the late 1970's. To the end Russ has combined Cypriot Latakia, Yellow Virginias, and Macedonian Orientals( including Yenidje), producing a smooth, fragrant, light-medium English blend.

War Horse Bar 

Plug

War Horse was a popular brand of pipe tobacco in Ireland and soon gained a following in the UK and U.S. before following out of production. Thanks to the blending prowess of Russ Ouellette though, War Horse returns. A mixture of Burley, Dark Fire Kentucky, and Virginia Leaf. This tobacco is a plug that presents a full body and robust flavor profile for the experinced pipe smoker, with subtle toppings of anise and tonquin complementing the natural tobacco flavor.

Cerberus

Named after the three-headed guard dog of the underworld in Greek mythology, this blend was introduced as the 2012 international pipe smoking day blend. As its moniker suggest, it showcases three tobaccos: Latakia, Perique, and Dark-Fired Kentucky. While also containing Virginias and Turkish leaf, Cerberus is the most Latakia-focused blend of Hearth and Home's Marque Series- a choice mixture fro English lovers through and through.

Magnum Opus

Cypriot Latakia provides the base for this English blend, while still allowing for sweet Yellow Virginia from both the U.S. and Bulgaria to shine through as well as a variety of choice. Orientals: Izmir, Basma, and Yedinje- dubbed the "Queen of Tobaccos." Finally a touch of Perique is added to deepen and balance out the mixture. Master blender Russ Ouellette went so far as to name it " Magnum Opus," and this masterpiece is a superb blend for English lovers.

The debut of Hearth and Homes Marque Series.
