Created for International Pipe Smoking Day in 2012, Cerberus is the most Latakia-forward of all the Hearth & Home Marquee Series blends.
Named for the three-headed hound that keeps the denizens of Hades from returning to the world, Cerberus' name refers to the fact that this robust, yet cool-smoking blend contains the three main condimental tobaccos - Latakia, Perique and dark-fired Kentucky. In addition, there's some excellent matured Virginias, and enough exotic Orientals to brighten the flavor, while making Cerberus' aroma even more intriguing.
The Latakia is a finer cut to deliver as much smoky goodness as possible, and it's best to pack this with a light hand. You'll be rewarded with lush, creamy smoke that will remind you of the outdoors. But don't take our word for it.
“A wonderful smokey blend, full of flavor that reminds me of sitting around the campfire. The Dark Fired Kentucky is the real star here, with the Perique making a great cameo appearance throughout the bowl. If you haven't tried it yet, I highly suggest you do.” -Mark W.
