Hearth & Home Signature Harvest Moon is the first H&H blend featuring one of the most popular flavors - smooth, sweet cherry. This cavendish-cut blend of burley and Virginia with a dash of black cavendish has a subtle note of cherry that's comes through more in the aroma than the flavor.

Hearth & Home - Harvest Moon.

I bought a few Hearth & Home blends a while ago so have decided to review some. I posted Olde Tyme Swirl about a week ago and quite enjoyed it. So, Harvest Moon?

The majority of the blend comprises a well broken flake, there are a few slightly coarser pieces, but mostly it's been well rubbed. Medium brown is the general colour, it includes a few lighter pieces, but I see no black Cavendish. The moment I removed the plastic 'topper' I identified perfect hydration. I notice a mild cherry aroma, but nothing strong.

The smoke? The cherry flavouring is unquestionable, albeit, fairly natural; not bitter, not acidic, and not too sweet. The cherries seem to have a little more energy for the first quarter. As anticipated from the appearance, the tobacco flavour's VaBur. I get no black Cavendish 'gloop', instead I get a Burley-heavy VaBur. I do get a little tongue bite from it, at times, so I approach it with a gentle technique. The burn from it's a bit quick, so needs little maintenance, and can become way too warm.

Nicotine: mild. Room-note: pleasant.

Harvest Moon? Hmmm, it's a nice enough flavour, but not the best mechanically. Two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

This is what a good cherry should be like. It is surprisingly dry out of the tin. It has the burn you would expect with highly flavored aromatics, but is surprisingly much less sugary taste (the aroma is quite sweet) than you would expect and the tobacco notes are much more pronounced than with comparable blends. The room note is quite pleasant though not as strong. In other words, this is exactly what a good cherry flavored pipe should be. Nothing fancy, just a good solid aromatic.

I found this to be Cherry Light. The cherry is fairly strong in the tin and room note but not overwhelming the tobacco in taste.

Unlike other cherry blends the cherry tastes more like black cherry and Not like cherry cough syrup.

Easy to pack and keep lit. Smoke slow to avoid some mild bite.
