Hearth & Home Prince Andrew

Notes: Hearth & Home Mid-Town Series Prince Andrew is a rich, but mellow burley blend with a mildly 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.

1 oz sample from an internet friend, who also gave me some PA to compare. In the bag they looked exactly alike although this one had more of a chocolately aroma while the original was more "burley".

In the pipe, this translated perfectly. The original was more nutty and cigarette-ish while this had just a bit more chocolate note. Other than that, they were very close in taste, except Andrew exhibited no trace of cigarette on initial light-up, relights and in the bottom fourth of the bowl. The basic nuttiness and grit of the original was more focused here, perhaps due to a finer grade of leaf. Differences between the two are likely noticeable only to those that are looking for them, for the most part. I did also compare these two to PA Choice, which I preferred over the other two, but is really not the same thing. While I felt this was a "better" tobacco (higher quality), I preferred the flavors presented by Choice. I'd give this 2.5 stars, the original PA 2 and the Choice 3. But I don't want to make too much of the differences. Choice is no longer available and is less like these two anyway. If I were a PA lover, I'd go for this and not miss a beat while saving some coin. If you're looking for depth and complexity, look elsewhere. If you're looking for PA, buy this instead! I doubt I'll smoke this again but I sure appreciated the opportunity! Thanks, friend!

I love Prince Albert. It's a daily smoke for me. I decided to try H&H Prince Andrew for cost reasons. I still had some Prince Albert on hand when Prince Andrew arrived. Had the same color and texture, but Prince Andrew was a lot more moist and smelled sweeter. I tried a pinch in a small cob just to get a taste. It seemed good, almost exactly like the original with more of a "real" tobacco taste. I thought I found a more cost effective solution to Prince Albert. Wrong. This stuff is very sweet, has a heavy chocolate flavor and the moisture affects the burning quality. It also had sort of a cinnamon-like taste that gave me some bad tongue bite. I left the lid off for a week and it became more palatable then, but still doesn't hold a candle to the original IMHO. I'm keeping it cellared for one of those backup/emergency situations. I'll stick with the original.

Pretty much just a Plain-Jane. No bite but this seems like nothing to write home about. Even its simplicity is unremarkable. I prefer the MacBaren burley blends to this mix...but I am not partial to Prince Albert, either.

Govern Yourself Accordingly.

Prince Andrew 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.
