Hearth & Home Signature Louisiana Red

Hearth & Home Signature Louisiana Red is a great sweet and spicy blend containing two different red Virginias and a good amount of outstanding Acadian 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, and has become the best-selling VaPer in the Hearth & Home lineup.

This tobacco was pretty good
This tobacco was pretty good I am not used to perique tobacco. on the other hand I ended up adding a little dark Cavendish to it not very much and got the flavor that I really wanted , so to tame the perique tobacco a little bit I did love the Virginia’s.

Very nice
I'm not an expert but I've smoked enough to know what I enjoy. I like this blend quite a bit at the moment. Smells like vinegar somewhat. May bite if smoked fast. I find myself reaching for this almost every time as of lately. Sweet, tangy, bready.

Great Moderate-Priced Va/Per!
Great moderate-priced Va/Per. A good deal sweeter, though slightly more “spicy” than something like Escudo or Comoy’s Cask #7. It is also weaker in flavor and body (but there is still a satisfying amount of both) than most others (due to the very sweet red Virginia I suppose). By the way, this tobacco does NOT BITE. Some people on these reviews don’t seem to know what bite is. Bite is caused by moisture from the chamber coming up to your mouth through the stem. The “bite” they are getting is the natural spiciness. Spiciness and “bite” are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT phenomena; this stuff smokes a bit hot as Virginias are wont to do, but it also smokes nice and dry (so NO bite!). If you’re new to Virginia Perique this is a good starting point. Though weaker than most Va/Pers it is a bit spicy as mentioned above and does not have a huge depth of flavor compared to higher-end Va/Pers. But at the price point, whatever your reservations, it is *well worth* trying out.

Little bit of a bite.
Little bit of a bite. I.prefer to soften it up a little bit with a very mild English. Definitely will reorder when gone.

Really great VaPer. Needs to age

Ages beautifully!
About nine months ago, I bought two pounds of this blend after trying a 2oz sample. I liked it a lot at first, but as it ages it is rapidly becoming one of my favorite smokes! It has developed a great vinegar/raisen aroma in the jar, and keeps getting better and better. I'm definitely going to keep a quantity of this one in the cellar, I just ordered two more pounds!

Russ has a winner in Louisiana Red
04 NOV, 2020 The tin note is amazing. The reds shine through with grassy hay and earthy notes. The Perique wafts up amongst the reds as a compliment to them. This blend smells wonderful. It should be a great smoke just as the other HEARTH & HOME blends have turned out to be. So far I am not disappointed. Under match this jumped to life with the sweetness of the reds. I am very pleased with the way this tastes. The Acadian Perique is just spicy enough to hit the back of the tongue and linger. The hay and grassy sweetness is very pleasant and I could smoke this all day. Like I say this is flavorful and smooth. I cannot say enough about this blend.

Peppery smoke
This blend is a peppery smoke. If you enjoy a more peppery va/per this maybe be for you.

Great, and finishes with a solid structure straight to the end. One of my favorites!

Louisiana Red
I have been a long time McClelland's smoker, favoring their Virginia Blends. Given the unavailability of McClelland's I began looking for a replacement and have found it in Louisiana Red.

My New "Go-To" tobacco.
With the loss of Dunhill, my 965/EMP preference had to change. Louisiana Red Bulk, with it's mix of Virginias and a nice shot of Perique, is where I ended up Excellent taste, good smoking characteristics, no bite, but full enough to satisfy. I knew it well: It's been a side dish all along, But Louisiana Red has the body and flavor to be an eminently satisfying main dish. If you haven't tried it, it's well worth giving it a chance.

Do you like red Virginias and Perique? Good, then buy this fantastic bulk blend. Gets better with age.

It arrived at the perfect moisture level, so jar it up. Very good blend and underrated.

Great VaPer
I'm a huge fan of this VaPer, it's become one of my 3 go to blends. To my tastes it doesn't seem real heavy on Perique but has an absolutely fantastic flavor. Easily an all day smoke.

Hard to light, burns hot, nothing to write home about.

Great tobacco.
I enjoyed the taste and smell of this blend. At Tobacco one individual wrote this "a mild and well-balanced VaPer". I agree completely with his comment.

Very enjoyable
I mixed it with Scotty' s Butternut Burley. Extremely good combination.

It is the first non-aromatic that my wife didn't mind. The peppery flavor comes through nicely and it smoked real well for a new pipe smoker. I loved it and will order more in the future.

Louisiana Red
Nice ribbon cut of red Virginia light on the Perique. This has become my replacement for 5100, although not the same it does have some similar qualities

A great VA/Per
I bought HH Louisiana Red shortly after discovering Perique, and fell in love all things VA/Per. At first, I added Perique to the blend - a good-sized pinch of Stokkebye 311 to a palm-full of HH LR - and that worked pretty well for a while. But then I fell in love with the Red Virginias. Now I smoke it as is and love it. Apparently, I'm not the only one, since P&C keeps running out of the stuff. Dagnabbit!

A good basic
Satisfying smoke, though rather one-dimensional. Would benefit by being augmented with some Latakia or Perique. Good to have on hand for blending.

Louisiana Red
Smoked 3 ozs. in less than 2weeks. There's something there very satisfying. Not a lot of plum flavor just spicy and good overall. The proof is in the smoking. Im in rotation but will probably buy another 3 or 4 3ozs soon.

Pretty Good All Around Smoke
I would have given this five stars, except for the fact that I'm experiencing a slight degree of tongue bite. Otherwise, I really like the aroma, the after flavor, and the room note when I can get away with smoking in doors is very pleasant.

Great va/per
Probably my favorite va/perique. Tastes great, burns well, and comes at a perfect moisture level. Jar aroma is candy sweet, and gets your mouth watering. The perique plays front and center, with a fruity taste and spicy retrohale.

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.

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 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!

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.
EP of Grayson, LA
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.
AF of San Francisco, CA
I did not like this blend. It was smooth but I tasted no perique
BM of Massillon, OH
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.
JW of Pasadena, CA
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.
AS of Culpeper, VA
