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.
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.
