Hearth & Home Signature Louisiana Red

Louisiana Red is a great sweet and spicy blend containing two different red Virginias and a good amount of outstanding St. James Perique. The rich, round sweetness of the Virginias are complimented by the plum and pepper hints of the cool-burning Perique. An overwhelming favorite of our local pipe club members.

This is good stuff
I'm an unabashed lover of all things Perique. There are a small handful of blends that I consider "must haves" for VaPer lovers, and H&H Louisiana Red is one of them. The dark sweetness from the Virginia is complemented by the perfect amount of Perique to give a deep, earthy, sweet, peppery, heady smoke. It's great fresh from the bag or tin, and becomes incredible with a few years' worth of age (if you can resist the temptation that long!)..

This was the best tasting VA red I've tried yet and makes for a very good smoke any time. This was my first try of H&H and I look forward to trying others.

Memories of New Orleans with Louisiana Red
Absolutely great--takes me back to the banks of the Mississippi River down in New Orleans. This has become my new "go to" tobacco. It just doesn't get any better.

Oui Doggie, Is Dat Good!
A sweet and tangy smoke, Zesty as a bowl of jambalaya (I had sweat running down my forehead). Warning: Not for the kids. That dog bites. It gets up on your tongue and does a little Zydeco dance. Ayeee! That’s right up my alley, a most exhilarating smoke, that stands up and greets you.

A great vaper from a great blender.
I love this blend. Mild to medium in strength with lots of flavor. Russ has done it again.

One of my favorites
Full bodied smoke. Love the sweet Virginias. Good flavor. And it burns pretty well. I like this VaPer.

If you like/love VaPer you'll love this!
It's a real full flavor honest tobacco blend of Virginias and perique. About as perfect a VaPer as you'll find. It's not for me; but it made me realize I'm a sweet Areomatic pipe smoker for life and pretending to be any thing else is a waste of time. But I tried and enjoyed the experience. As such, I can honestly say if my pallet weren't so particular and decided, this blend would be the only VaPer I'd smoke.

My new favorite!
I am a fairly inexperienced smoker and have been trying to sample a number of brands - I'm up to about a dozen so far. I am struck by how smooth and tasty this one is. With everything I've tried so far I've been fairly neutral about the aftertaste. With this one, after the smoke, I find myself pressing my tongue and cheeks together in my mouth to re-taste the flavor. My first (and only so far) Perique and my new favorite!

This is a simply amazing blend. The mix of the sweet deep flavors of the red Virginias and the spicy plum perique is sublime. My favorite!!!!

My first time!
This was the first VaPer I ever smoked that turned me on to VaPers! It holds a special place in my rotation and cellar. The very first bowl, I was surprised. It had this rich tobacco character, combined with a toasted bread and juicy sweet and sour note. The smoke felt 'juicy' in my mouth. It was incredible! There would be this occasional tingle of black pepper, maybe some stewed fruit. The room not is what non-aromatic smoke should smell like. Pleasant, warm and smoke like. When spring rolls around, this blend comes back out and follows me around for quick car rides, or evenings in the yard or park with the kids playing. I can sit on the porch and enjoy a bowl, or completely lose focus on my smoke while walking with the wife and kids. This a very enjoyable VaPer for me and one I have even gifted to a friend who I introduced to pipe smoking. Please don't buy this blend, leave the lions share for me and my future orders.

My Favorite VaPer
Rounded Red Virginia and a generous amount of very good Louisiana Perique. This is my favorite version of this mix, a perfect blend for an afternoon smoke or outside in the evenings, watching the river flow by. I enjoy other Hearth and Home blends along the same line, but this is my "go-to" favorite. It's a comfortable fit, like an old friend that drops by for a chat. It's as close to perfection there is!

Reliable Smoke
I fine Louisiana Red to be a reliable Virginia tobacco that is easy to live with. A beautiful cut that lights easily. It definitely benefits from drying out. It has been about 2 months since I opened the tin and it is just now settling down to a smooth smoke that doesn't bite.

Louisiana Red...good
When I first tried it as a newbie searching, i found something i really liked in this blend. My taste were changing rapidly and this doesn't have the same taste that it did, so I have shelved it to revisit or blend with later. I have dared to try a stronger blend looking for flavor and Elizabethan Mixture is wonderful. And I continue to try new blends.

True Tobacco Flavor
I really like Louisiana Red's True Tobacco Flavor and aroma. It caught me off guard the first time I smoked it. It reminded me of the tobacco's I smelled when I was a kid in the barber shop or the bank. However great the flavor and smell. Louisiana Red has a tendency to burn a little fast and hot. I blended perique with it, 3:1 so it would burn cooler and slower. It's a really fine tasting blend, I stumbled on. PURE LOUISIANA. I think that is what I'll call it.
Customer Testimonials
LR packs and smokes easy. It's a smooth flavored blend. I did not like it though bc, to me at least, it tastes as if it had a light top dressing. I also tasted little perique and mostly Virginia. It is a sweet spicy smoke with little depth. It's worth a try. Not rotation worthy for me though.
This is an outstanding smoke. It has a very light salty taste on the top of a sweet taste. It is kinda like a malt and fries it is just something about a sweet and salty flavor that I love. It is not a strong taste but just enough to let you know it's there. If you haven't tried it you have too.
Writing this while smoking for the first time. Fantastic tangy citrus flavors with wonderful spicy front edge. Full cool smoke. Lighter end of VaPers but extremely tasty and satisfying. Wonderful blend. Highest recommendation. Will be frequented often on my lineup.
I did not like this blend. It was smooth but I tasted no perique
This is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Has a nice room note and subtle spice flavors. Really enjoy this paired with a nice Port after dinner.
My first venture into a Virginia/Perique blend. Sweet with some spicyness, good room note, cool burning, very nice flavor, enjoyable to the bottom of the bowl. Nice change from my usual aromatics. This one's a keeper.
Great VaPer blend!
Sweet and smooth yet with a little spice. A unique smoke. Good stuff
Sweet flavor,very smooth,even burning. Quickly becoming one of my personal favorites.
