Hearth & Home Marquee Magnum Opus


During the seventies, our master blender, Russ Ouellette created his first tobacco blend,using a well-known mixture and then tweaking it. Russ loved Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture, and he especially enjoyed the very special Oriental tobacco that made it so unique - Yenidje. So he added even more of the "Queen of Tobaccos" to B.S.O.S.M., and then added some Perique to give it more body, spice and a bit of sweetness. When Sobranie disappeared, Russ couldn't make his blend anymore.

Fast forward to 2010. Hearth & Home has been on the market for five years at that point, and Russ thought about his old favorite and decided to set out to recreate it. After a little experimentation, he was pleased with the results, and had intended just to make it for himself. When he lit up a bowl at a pipe club meeting, the members commented on the great aroma and asked if they could try it. They universally fell in love with the blend, and told Russ that he had to sell it. One of the members told Russ that this blend was his "Magnum Opus" and the name stuck. Additionally, because the Orientals were so costly, a new line had to be created, and the Hearth & Home Marquee Series was born.
If you enjoy vibrant Latakia blends that aren't too heavy and have an amazing aroma, you owe it to yourself to try Magnum Opus.
