Hearth & Home Signature Mt. Marcy
This elegant blend gets its name from the highest peak in New York. This medium-bodied Balkan blend has a complex, delicate flavor and aroma. A great choice when you want the richness of Latakia and the bouquet of Turkish tobaccos, but don’t want anything too heavy.
Flavor: None detected
Room Note: Pleasant to Tolerable
The tin note was of smokey Latakia and the sweet hay from the Virginias. On the charring light the smokiness of the Latakia was the predominate flavor. On the true light the sweet hay flavor of the Virginias was added to the flavor profile. The spiciness of the Turkish tobaccos would wander in and out of the flavor mix. Mt. Marcy burned cool and well with minimal re-lights. I would not say that this blend is Latakia forward, but Latakia is one of the main flavors in the blend. I recommend giving the blend a try.
