Hearth & Home Marquee Cerberus

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.

Start of an obsession.
Definitely one of my favorite blends. The first tins I got were filled with the most spice type flavor of perique I have ever tasted. This is the tobacco that started my obsession with perique. Medium to full, as many English blends are, but not harsh. Will report back when a buddy and me pop my tin that's been aging since 2012.

Cerberus... Not for me.
I didn’t really care too much for Cerberus. I do enjoy Latakia blends. Hearth & Home’s Ten to Midnight is my favorite nightly smoke. I suspect it’s probably the flavor of whatever Orientals they use in Cerberus that I don’t care for. There seems to be a lot of different Oriental and Turkish tobaccos out there. The tins don’t always state which particular Orientals are included in each particular blend and there seems to be good reason for that. From what I’ve read in various articles, the pipe tobacco world of Oriental tobacco is confusing and inconsistent at best. We as consumers can only imagine the struggle Master Blenders must go through in trying to keep the flavor of their most popular Oriental blends consistent and affordable. For me Cerberus tastes similar to Cornell & Diehl’s Star of the East. It’s possible they may have similar types of Orientals. If you’ve tried and enjoyed Cornell & Diehl’s Star of the East then you should give Cerberus a try.

This was excellent, and I
This was excellent, and I will certainly be buying it again. If you have any interest in latakia's, you've gotta give this a try.

Great stuff!
I love this stuff! I'm a Frog Morton Cellar guy and this tops that. It is a bit strong so it's my outside relaxing at the end of the day blend. Wife likes the smell also!

darn
Kind of a let down for me. It sounds like it's supposed to be exploding with flavor but it's kinda mild to me. The flavor I did get was good, just not enough. If I could give it 3.5 I would. But definitely didn't deserve a 4.

Marquee Cerberus
I am not a huge fan of English blends, but I do enjoy them every couple of days. I cannot remark on the various tobaccos in this blend, but I found the taste to be very pleasant. It s a cool and flavorful smoke. The best English I have had.

Pipe Hearth & Home package deal
I have always enjoyed Hearth and Home tobacco and was surprised to see a pipe package deal with 3 Hearth & Home tobacco including a lighter and a package of pipe cleaners. The pipe is beautiful. A little tight around the stem, but i used my dremel tool to bore the hole just a bit in the pipe and placed a little food grease on the stem. Now the pipe is not super tight and I can actually rotate it to my needs in different positions. To me the pipe is an A+. It would have a AAA+ if the stem was a little softer and not so hard. The lighter worked the first time I put butane in it and is also a Plus. I will keep ordering through Pipes & Cigars. Glad you guys are around. Looking forward to trying different brands and flavors.

Cerberus
An excellent, mild smoke appropriate for any time of day. I especially enjoy it with a nice cup of Earl Grey tea.

A very nice smoke. One of my favorites.

Reminds me a bit of tamarind.
Yes, it's good. Very good. The initial taste is mostly latakia, but that soon fades a bit, and becomes less dominant as the other components emerge. The result is smokey, musty, tart, with a perfect amount of sweetness. As someone who smokes cigarettes and uses snus, I'm not the best judge of nicotine content, but I find this to be very easy and enjoyable to smoke even though it's bold and spicy. Great value, too!

Cerberus by Hearth and Home
Just opened the tin today. Initial aroma is very smoky as I expect. This tin seemed to be dryer than most English tins. Easy to light and burn. Packed lightly in two different pipes, it is a good smoke but even though I have been a pipe smoker since about 1967, I have never liked a lot of Perique. If you like Spicy, which is what I get so far, this one is for you. In the Marquee Series, I am a fan of WhiteKnight.

Three pats on the head to Cerberus!!!
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.
Customer Testimonials
This is a mild latakia blend. Curious, the tin was only half full, but the weight is as advertised.
I find myself coming back to Cerberus. Every time. There is something about it I can not resist. I see the tin and must open it. The moment that distinct aroma hits me, I have to smoke it! A cool Latakia smoke but more. I have yet to put my finger on it, but the combination of this tobacco just hits the right spot for me. No one I have smoked around likes the room note, so you might want to take it to a place where you and Cerberus can be alone. It will ghost your pipe so you want to have one or two dedicated to it. (I have 3 lol). I highly recommend.
