Made for The Pipe Smokers of Ireland Club, Hearth of Galway has almost 50 percent Cyprian Latakia with a good portion of Tennessee burley along with a touch of natural cavendish and black cavendish over a bed of Virginia. While this American English blend has plenty of Latakia, it is not a Lat-bomb as the other tobaccos are obvious to your palate in a pleasing manner.

Medium to Strong Extremely Mild Medium to Full Tolerable

The musty, salty Cyprian Latakia provides a lot of smoke, wood, earth, floralness, some sweet and sour qualities along with a little spice. It is the lead component comprising forty percent of the blend. The Tennessee burley offers plenty of earth, wood, nuts, and a little sugar. It’s a couple of steps below a full support level. The aspects of the natural cavendish include nuts, earth, wood, grass, sugar, light tart and tangy citrus, and cognac. It sits in the third position. The grassy, tart and tangy, bready, sugary, vegetative, mildly floral, slightly spicy, acidic Virginia is a little more than a condiment. The same can be said for the toasty, sugary black cavendish. The strength is two steps over the medium mark. The taste is a rung past that. The nic-hit is medium. There’s no chance of bite or harshness. Has a few small rough edges. Well balanced, it burns cool and clean at a moderate pace with a very consistent tangy fruity, sugary and sour, floral, mildly spicy, campfire flavor. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly lingering after taste and a tolerable room note. Despite its inherent depth, it can be all day smoke for the veteran piper, and repeatable for the less experienced.
