Hearth & Home Signature AJ's VaPer

Blended with Andrew (AJ) Smith, Hearth & Home Signature AJ's VaPer is a different turn on the Virginia/Perique genre. A variety of red Virginias are combined with a generous amount of Perique, and the mixture is slightly mellowed and sweetened by Green River black Cavendish. For an all-day type of Virginia blend, AJ's VaPer will fill the bill.

Unassuming sweet VaPer
Once you get this dried out enough to smoke it, it's smooth and sweet, with enough spice to keep you interested. No bite, and burns fairly cool. A nice relaxing smoke for anytime of day, or all day if you are a VaPer fan. It makes a nice change from English Balkan blends.

Definitely worth a try if you like spice/wood notes.
Smoked several bowls in a cob dedicated to VaPers. This blend is all about spice. Lots of white pepper (not a complex spiciness). The finish has a cedar note that gets more pronounced the closer you get to the bottom of the bowl. I didn't really note any sweetness on this blend. Medium body, although I could see if some might think it leans slightly fuller. Reminds me very much of smoking a good cigar! Smoked pretty cool and consistent for the most part, with very few relights. this is a good inexpensive blend. As a side note I purposefully tried drawing bit more heavy and frequent to note any flavor shift and got more cedar finish which was actually sort of nice, although it did start to bite a bit and just slightly sour by doing this. I prefer to experiment rather than hang on one blend but I wouldn't mind possibly ordering this one again, especially given the price.

VaPer Please
First off I am a rookie smoker. I really enjoyed this once I sat down and slowed my pace a little. It is peppery with a slight sweetness. It has a little bit of a punch but not quite as strong as haunted bookshop. It will definitely find a place in my rotation.

Lemony and zesty sweet with plenty of spice, and then the Virginia's in the back ground that grow. More rich fruits than hay/grassiness.
[Tin/bag - Reminds of Stokkebye LNF, sweet, deep fruit/raisens, lots of old shoe leather. Horses stall, with fresher hay. Molassis. Did let it dry some with about 15 to 30 mins. Then mason jar after a couple hours since it was very fresh from backorder. Traditional and slightly corse ribbon cut with a couple slightly large pieces of cavendish that supports easy prep and light.] Slightly lemony and very zesty sweet with plenty of spice along the virginia's slighly more in the back (especially on retro). Pleasant Virginias once you place them. Excellent full mouth feel, and full of fruitful flavors along with background Virginia. Virgina's grow some, and so does the spicey Perique, but not to large amounts. Some nice fruit notes occuring all along, with only a tad of slight sour here and there along with the spice. Quite a bit of almost orangy sweetness, and high on the sweet and fruitiness through the duration. Really enjoying the sweetness and balance along with a Lagunitas Imperial Stout for periodic sips. It may have a bit too much sweetness and other flavors rolling around in there for certain desired times of a more grassy and heavy Virgina smoke - have some Gawith Full Virginia Flake or Stokkebye LNF for more grassiness. Really liking this smoke! Easy burning with little relights down to a nice white/grey ash, and not much ash at all really at the end. Burns cool, but did get "some" heat (not much really) while fast paced puffinging and exploring. No moisture left over, and easy relight if you let it burn out. No problems to manage. Not a biter at all, but heavy puffing on any Virgina could get you a little sting after several bowls. This one burns so easily and nicely that you could hit it too hard too often, and after several bowls notice you have bitten yourself a tad. Full of flavor to the end - wonderful stuff! It's on the re-order for the pound list. On to another bowl of it!

A Must Try!
AJ's VaPer. If you enjoy a moderate to high amount of Perique and/or Red Virginias, you will more than likely enjoy this blend. Less Perique than SG St. James Flake, similar amount maybe more than Stokkebye's Navy Flake to give you an idea. This is the best H&H VaPer in my opinion (have yet to try Viprati though). Red Virginia tobacco tends to give me sharp tangy, almost sour, flavor and I am very happy that the unpleasant flavor subsides immediately after the charring light, unlike Louisiana Red. This is an exceptional blend. Will be buying more soon to age as this has incredible potential. The Reds have mellowed out over the 6 weeks I have had it jarred already.This will forever be in my cellar. The tobacco arrived at nearly the perfect moisture, maybe a bit on the dry side but absolutely no complaints about the quality of the tobacco on arrival. This is a must try for any VaPer fans.

Excellent VaPer at an excellent price
This is a great choice for those who love VaPers. Arrives at the perfect moisture content, packs well. Full of flavor without the heat/harshness that is present in some VaPers. And you can't beat the bulk price, especially compared to some famous tinned brand. I will definitely be ordering more of this.

All day smoke
The only thing I don't like about this tobacco is that the cut burns very fast, so even though it's easily a fine all day smoke, I find myself reloading my pipe quite often. Having said that, it's a fantastic smoke with the heavier Perique profile I prefer.

Delicious, Spicy, Good Dose of Perique
I was gifted a few ounces of this and it has become my favorite vaper. I enjoy higher perique content blends like this. I wasn't sure if I would like black cavendish, but I really do. This is more spicy/perique-y than say Stokkebye's Luxury Bullseye Flake, which also has black cavendish. I prefer AJ's to LBF.

A Good All Day Smoke
I have purchased AJ's VaPer several times and have always enjoyed it. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because I think it might benefit from a little less cavendish, or perhaps no cavendish and substitute something else, perhaps some dark fired. (I'm not a tobacconist.) But I wouldn't put latakia in it. There are plenty of those blends out there already. For those who wish to make the switch from aromatic blends to something else however, AJ's VaPer would be a nice place to start. If smoked slowly, there's no tongue bite, and the aroma is very pleasant.

A very nice smoke.
I am a long time fan of vapers, and this one by my standards is great. Maybe just a bit light on the perique but it's is most certainly there. Nice full flavor with a good punch of nicotine. One of my favorites in the morning to get the day started right.

Good Stuff
3 1/2 stars. A little austere for my taste - I often like to add an additional portion of Green River cavendish to soften and sweeten it just a bit, but it is excellent as is.

VaPer
This is a great smoke. I am an English Blend smoker, but I really enjoy this smoke as a change of pace. I tried to reorder but it was out of stock.

A fine smoke, I just wish it lasted a little longer.
I detect notes of bell pepper and black pepper. Somewhat more pronounced than expected. Don't let the small amount of cavendish fool you, this blend isn't overwhelmingly sweet by any stretch of the imagination, and not nearly as sweet as a pure Virginia, or LJ heart Virginia even. The 8 ounce tin came out at the perfect moisture level for my preferences. Despite being mostly Virginia the blend smokes with no bite, even if I smoke a little quickly. It burns down to a fine white ash every bowl, but I just wish it burned a little slower. I would be interested to see how this blend would perform pressed into flakes and given time for the flavors to marry a bit. I'd recommend putting it in a stack, or large corncob to get the most out of this fine offering.

Is there really a healthy dose of perique in here?
I am new to the VaPer tobaccos and honestly I can barely tell a difference in this blend and non perique VA blends. That being said, this is a great blend with a smooth sweet taste. The room note seems decent and it came at the right humidity, though I did have to relight a couple times (maybe just the way I smoked it). As my palate matures I hope I can enjoy the perique blends even more. Recommended.

Absolute Favorite
AJ's VaPer delivers on all fronts: taste, strength, satisfaction, and value. I can't imagine starting a day without it--well, I can, but it's not a pleasant thought. I found this blend five years ago and haven't been without it since. It has always been consistent. I prefer the bulk to the tinned version. The bulk has been just right on delivery, but the tinned tends to be somewhat more moist (nothing that couldn't be cured with a little drying time). Thanks, Russ and AJ!
Customer Testimonials
Very delicious blend. Burned evenly and had absolutely no bite what so ever. Definitely a regular in my rotation. Highly recommended!
A good intro to VaPer blends. Easy to light, stays lit, no bite, strong peppery taste.
Ok I give up on vapers. After being dissapionted with the anniversary kake I decided to give this a shot. I don't know if my taste buds stopped working or what, but this tobacco was so mild I couldn't taste anything. Nothing. Very,very light cigarette like taste I think. I'm not even sure. It looks great, smells good, but does nothing for me. I'm not giving up though, I pressed it into a small 2oz kake and threw it into a mason jar. I'll revisit it in 6months. Thanks P&C.
Great tobacco -- I've smoked pounds of it. However, as of late, I've noticed that I throw away more of it than I'd like, due to globs of humidifying agent. I've set these globs out to dry for days, to no avail. Can you guys do something about this?
Smooth, cool and tasty. An excellent all day blend.
Another outstanding blend for Vaper lovers with some Cavendish added for some sweetness. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars
