Frenchy's Sunzabitches has been a popular H&H blend for years. But a lot of people find that, while they love the flavor, it can be a bit too potent at times. If you're one of those folks, welcome Hearth & Home Signature Scot's Delight. This Cavendish-cut blend of Burley, Virginia and a bit of black Cavendish is kissed by a subtle touch of whiskey flavor, and less wallop than Frenchy's.

Heath & Home - Scot's Delight.

Upon opening I'm presented with a mid-size ribbon, medium brown in colour, without any black pieces (a contradistinction to the current list of ingredients saying black Cavendish!), and there's a definite alcoholic/whiskey aroma. The moisture of my tin was perfect. It's all concealed underneath a clear-plastic cap, when the lid's removed.

Scot' takes to the flame with great ease, and gives a pleasant enough flavour. But, in all fairness, where whiskey aro's go I preferred the Super Value Bourbon' I posted a few weeks back! Anyhoo, forget that, let's talk Scot's Delight! It isn't strongly flavoured with sharp, cutting, grog. Instead the whiskey gives a subtle fragrance on top of the tobaccos. The tobaccos leave me somewhat nonplussed. See, there's absolutely zero black Cav'; no sticky, vanilla, sweetness. Instead it resembles a basic cavendished VaBur mixture. The taste isn't too bad, unfortunately the mechanics of it let it down; it burns darn hot.

Nicotine: below medium. Room-note: quite pleasant.

Scot's Delight? Hmmmm, the smoke tastes ok, but the physical aspects let it down. So, two stars it is:

Somewhat recommended.

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Pleasant

Tin note of sugar, alcohol, and hay. Tobacco is dark brown, brown and light brown ribbon cut. Moisture content is a little high, drying needed to light. No other prep needed. Burns moderate with few relights. The strength is mild and nic is mild. Flavoring is medium, with notes of sweet Whiskey that stays with the smoke throughout. Taste is mild to medium and consistent, with notes of toast, molasses, earth, wood, spices, nuts, brown sugar, savory, sweet, tangy citrus, dry, orange peel, cocoa, a stewed dark fruit background note, and a smooth retro. Burley is leading with Cavendish and Virginia supporting. Room note is pleasant, and aftertaste is good.
