Hearth & Home Signature Very Nice takes the concept of Berry Nice and switches it up. Instead of a straight black cavendish, this is a blend of black cavendish with Virginia, and rather than the melange of berry flavors, Very Nice is bright with the fresh flavor of rich raspberries.

Mild Strong Mild to Medium Pleasant

The sugary black cavendish is the lead component. The grassy, citrusy Virginia is a condiment. The mildly tangy sweet, tartly sour raspberry topping greatly sublimate the tobaccos. It also sports a touch of a chemical. The strength is mild, while the taste is just past the center of mild to medium. The nic-hit is very light. Won’t bite or get harsh. It may need a few minutes of dry time. Burns fairly cool at a reasonable pace with a consistent flavor that translates to the lightly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. An all day smoke.

Hearth & Home - Very Nice (Signature Series).

Sunday: my day for aromatics!

Pretty coarse ribbons, mine was nicely hydrated, black Cavendish accounts for more of Very Nice than Virginia, and I get a potent aroma of berries.

The smoke from it's rich in flavour; albeit, added, not natural. The raspberries rule the smoke, being tart, tangy, a little sour, and VERY LIVELY. They leave little room for the tobaccos, not that there'd be much tobacco flavour to grasp; it's a simple, Cav-heavy, aromatic base. VN burns well, cool and independent, without tongue bite.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: not bad.

Very Nice? Not a bad smoke, but not a great smoke. Somewhat recommended:

Two stars.

Very Mild Strong Very Mild Tolerable

I got Very Nice as part of a buy-one-get-one deal (not sure what this was paired with, since I dislike and avoid fruit flavored aromatics). As expected, it smelled horrible. Another over-the-top kids cereal reeking of artificial fruit flavor. If you like candy raspberry and you want your pipe to smell like Laffy Taffy for awhile, then you have come to the right place.

It was a bouncy, moist, flaky cut that packed well and lit great. The topping on the overly stewed Cavendish caused a few reluctant relights (as I didn't want to finish it). The toxic cloud produced a chemical taste like a burnt air freshener. The room note was more of someone vaping than enjoying a pipe.

I'm definitely not the target audience, but I can't imagine anyone who cares enough to look up tobacco reviews, is either.
