We have another H&H blend here. The others have been solid smokes. Nothing too extraordinary but for the price, great blends. Then we get to Marble Kake. This stuff is a tough block in the bag. Not like 3P's but also not like Penz. Kind of reminds me of lighter knot. You know the stuff you break off pieces and start fires with? Basically sawdust soaked in lighter fluid and pressed into blocks.
At first after lighting up, this is good but once again not extraordinary. Kinda bitey. Good virginia flavors. Then all of the sudden the sweetness just hits like crazy! Holy smokes this stuff is good! I'm telling you, though, it's got to have some kind of casing. This stuff is too sweet not to.
If Marble Kake is like Hamborger Veermeister, then I can't wait to try that one too! This Hearth & Home blend really caught me by surprise and really blew me away. I'm sure it's got some kind of sweetner and isn't just straight virginias but who cares! It's great!
edit: I went and read on TR and it says the flavor is different depending how you prepare it. So you know, I used the tobacco that was in the bottom of the bag. Basically rubbed out tobacco.
