Hearth & Home Mid-Town Prince Andrew


Hearth & Home Mid-Town Series Prince Andrew is a rich, but mellow, Burley blend with a modest-sweet flavor with notes of cocoa and nuts. It's a pleasant, all-day type of tobacco that's cool and bite-free. Perhaps, best of all, it's very affordable.

Not an exact match..
Not an exact match to Prince Albert, but pretty close. IMHO Prince Albert has a more pronounced cocoa flavor than this does, and this is ribbon cut while PA is cross cut. This burley blend is a great smoke on its own, and is definitely worth a try, especially since Middleton has been having supply issues getting product to market.

Similar but different than Prince Albert
The pluses. This is a very tasty tobacco. As a 20 year Prince Albert smoker it is similar, but different, like your wife using your mothers recipe, it does not quite come out the same. Smooth burning with little bite as an all day smoke. This does not have as stems like you will occasionally find in Prince Albert. Now for the negatives.This is a ribbon cut, so you have to pack it differently than Prince Albert. There is a learning curve, with relights more often required especially in smaller bowl pipes. I would definitely purchase again as a change from Prince Albert or should Prince Albert go the way of the chorded telephone and Gillette trac two razor blades, in other words, discontinued.

Do you have Prince Albert in a can?
Let him out! A blast from the past for folks who remember when there was no caller ID!

Nice Aromatic?
A pleasant smoke - it begs for a bit of spice - as in Latakia - wife appreciated the mild warm room aroma

Prince Andrew
Smokes kind of wet for what it was. I prefer the Chatham Manor and dinner dunhill ready rubbed but those certainly satisfied the need

All day smoke
I've only been smoking for a couple of years, always trying new blends. I've found alot that I like but this is the 1at that I would say is my all day smoke. It's so mild and subtle while the price is so economic. Love it!

New Favorite
I really love the cut, long strings of tobacco is much better then the cross cut you see in other brands which when the can is running low it is almost dust. This has become my new favorite over Prince Albert. More brands should go for the longer cut and get rid of their cross cut machines.

A smooth smoke
I have only had one pipeful so far and that occurred when I was raking leaves. So while I wasn’t sitting in a recliner it was still a relaxing smoke no bite and smooth.

Real Close!!!
Although not an exact match to PA, all though there are very close similarities...This is a Great tobacco in it's own standing. Thanks Russ, another job well done!!!

Good OTC
This is an honest, straightforward, Burley blend with a light chocolate top note. All the benefits of the blend it's intended to emulate without the chemical/cigarette flavors

Prince Aandrew
Mild, mellow, and more pleasant than my "go to standard," Sir WalterRaleigh. The Midtown version of this old favorite is better than the original version, and I definitely will buy it again.

Needs improvement...
Having gotten most of the way through the can, I feel confident in writing a review. This stuff is unbearably moist for the week or two after the seal is broken. As such, it bites the tongue something terrible...my tongue still feels like 48-grit sandpaper. It burns to a powdery black ash and leaves a lot of goopy carbon deposits in its wake. Worst of all, of the several blends I've smoked over the years, this one is far and away the most difficult to keep alight. Though it does have a good nutty Burley flavor, I get no cocoa notes. If the cut was a little finer and the casing toned down, it would vastly improve. But if it continues in its present state, I won't be buying any more.

I received this tub about 5 weeks ago and at first it was very aggressive. It burned and bit horribly. I regretted having bought it. So I let it sit for 3 weeks, occasionally fluffing it by hand to air it out somewhat. I tried a bowl. Still hot. Not fun. Each week I tried a bowl on the weekends. Getting less and less hot and harsh. After week 5, it has reached its perfection point. My, my, my . . . how it has changed with maturity. Prince Andrew is a fine, satisfying smoke be it in cob or briar; I have not yet tried it in meerschaum. It is my first experience with receiving tobacco that had to be mellowed; Lane 1Q and HGL are good to go but this stuff has to be broken in, much like a pipe itself. While the above mentioned can get to be sorta like having pecan pie for a main course, (overly rich) Prince Andrew is subtle, satisfying, and not too much of a good thing. A good, mellow smoke. And my wife says she can barely smell it, but when she does, it is not unpleasant. Ray Mocarsky

P.s.
P.s. I hope Pipes and Cigars makes this available in bulk. There's no telling how many Prince Albert cans I have bought and discarded when empty. P and C does have a bulk tobacco called Prince Albert Match, but when I sampled it, I found it to be well off the mark.

Pleasant. Try it.
Who is/was Prince Andrew? Never mind. It a pleasant tobacco, slightly milder and and maybe a little sweeter than Prince Albert. Both are flavored with cocoa. When I opened the plastic can of Albert, the cocoa aroma was very strong. Missing from Andrew is the hint of Turkish evident in Albert. To make a closer match to Albert, leave the can open for a few days to allow cocoa vapors to dissipate. Mix 9 parts of Andrew with 1 part Blended Turkish Ribbon. Pip pip, jolly good show, old bean.

The Prince has been rescued!
I have tried most of the drug store blends: Half and Half, Carter Hall, Prince Albert, etc. I enjoy Virginia and English blends; but, as a young husband and Dad I can't bring myself to purchase them except on occasion (as bad as I want to). I needed to find something I could buy a lot of for cheap. I thought I was home with Prince Albert until I found out about the extras they put in him (not good for you). I also noticed Prince Albert would change on me, mid way or towards the end of my bowl. I would get a chemical taste (similar to cheap gas station cigars). You won't find that here. This is by far the highest grade tobacco I have handled. It also has what I loved about PA, no fuss. It just delivers. A solid bed of daily comfort, for those of us who need it. Honestly, the room note is nice as well. It reminds me of everything I love: Grandpas, Grandmother's warm dessert, good conversation. It also brings with it a gentle manliness. It's what I would imagine Dr. Grabow smoking...on his North Carolina porch on a summer evening. Obviously, you can tell I like it. If you enjoy PA, you will love this. Thank you, Russ.

The Old Standby Perfected
A Royal version of a timeless classic.

Definitely NOT Prince Albert...
Stronger, harsher, more crudely cut. hotter burning, less-appreciated room note than with Prince Albert, this is STILL a very enjoyable smoking tobacco! Whenever I feel the need for a pipeful of PRINCE ALBERT WITH AN ATTITUDE, I turn to Prince Andrew!

A real Prince!
While it won't knock Sir Walter Raleigh off of the OTC Burley throne, this Prince ain't half bad... in fact it's real good! A close PA match and a good example of an old codger burley.

Great blend!
Very tasty blend. I've mixed it with the Chatham Manor for a really good change.

Really good tobacco.
Almost a dead ringer for Prince Albert! The flavor and the nicotine hit is a little light but ok.

Not Great but not too bad
I prefer Prince Albert, however this one is not bad. Probably will not buy again.

Good, But Not Even Close To Prince Albert
While it is a good smoke with better quality tobacco, it lacks that wonderfully smooth Prince Albert top flavor. To my taste it s not a good enough substitute in its present formulation. Until or unless P&C reformulates, my advice would be to stick with the original. Come on P&C, you can do better than that, it is so easy to fix!
Customer Testimonials
They say this is a match to Prince Albert (which was the first tobacco I smoke when I started back in the 70's.) It had been a long time since I had smoked Prince Albert, so when I ordered this, I went to the local store and brought Albert home. In a side by side comparison, I do not see where these two match up, other than to say they are both very mild. I do feel that Hearth and Home has a better product, one that serves up a better taste. The blend does smoke well. It's very easy to light and it stays lite and burns very clean. While I do not believe this will be a main stay in my cellar, but I can see getting a few ounces now and then.

Not close to Prince Albert
FC of Dacono, CO
A follow up to my previous review. It seems that a little resting time in the jar has helped re-establish some aroma and flavor. Its a decent burley. I was expecting a bit more though. Also I was wrong on the price point. Forgot it was a 2 oz. bag.
MM of Metropolis, IL
First. I like burley. I got this tobacco in the 2oz. bulk bag. After 2 bowls last night, honestly, I'm not impressed. Its bland and almost tasteless. Room note was practically non-existent. Maybe its due to the bulk packaging. I have jarred the rest and will let it sit for a week or two then try again. If it doesn't improve I can always use it for blending, although next time I will just buy blending burley at half the price.
MM of Metropolis, IL
One of my dad's favorites-taste and aroma just the way I remember...Thanks Russ!
CD of Bristol, CT
I'm not crazy about Prince Albert, just seems rather bland and boring. However, I do like Russ's version, it's a very tasty perfect sweetness pleasant smoke that can be enjoyed all day! Great job on this one!!
CS of Orland, IN
This could make a guy fall in love with burley, all over again. Sweet and pleasing aroma, affordable, and packed in a high-quality container. I especially appreciate the low amount of propylene glycol, so it smokes dry and cool. Our pipe club bought canisters of all of the Mid-Town blends to sample out for tasting. Every one is a winner, and Prince Andrew is my favorite.
DT of Waunakee, WI
I really enjoy PA so I gave this a try. Early comparisons are that Andrew is not quite the same semi sweet, easy burning crimp cut as PA, it can be enjoyed as a more robust substitute. The cut and appearance is quite similar. The burley a bit more pronounced and thus far requires a little more attention to detail pace wise, or it bites me. After smoking several bowls it has mellowed some for me. Must be a PH thing.
MW of Ocala, FL
Now THIS is tasty stuff! I kinda like it better that The Prince itself. A bit on the light side for me but I am a clencher and Puffer. It fills the bill without a single bite and smells pretty pleasant too. Nice going Russ O.!
TS of Rehoboth Beach, DE
This is a good match to the Prince, which I have enjoyed for years. I still had some Prince Albert on hand when Prince Andrew arrived in the mail. I did a side by side comparison. Same cut, color and moisture. I did a taste test and this one was just as good as the original, if not a little better. It had more of a "real" tobacco taste. If you're curious, don't think twice. Get some!
MV of Edgewater Park, NJ
I am not old enough to remember previous renditions of the Prince Albert brand. But this tobacco is how I imagined it tasted in previous generations. There is no chemical taste or aroma to this tobacco that I can detect, to me it smells a bit like Kahlua or a chocolate liquor of some kind, it burns cleanly with no wet heel or dottle, and it actually tastes like... TOBACCO, gasp!
