Hearth & Home: MAGNUM OPUS 50g

Your Price: $10.29
Item Number: HHMAG
Magnum O! is a blend of Cyprian Latakia, excellent yellow Virginias from the U.S. and Bulgaria, Izmir, Basma and the “Queen of Tobaccos”, Yenidje. Then we add some Perique to give it more depth and smoothness. Here’s a quote from well-known pipe and tobacco collector Fred Goldring, who tested Magnum O! during development: ”I immediately searched my mind to recall what vintage tobacco this sample best represented. Every time I put a name to it the blend again changed and the taste shifted to another and yet another blend from the past, all of which I stock in my cellar and all of which I enjoy very much. I decided to smoke the last half of the bowl that I started the evening before. Believe it or not the second half was more magical than the first. I walked in and out of my smoking room a number of times this evening and each time the exquisite aroma of this blend became more apparent. If you make a ton I will purchase half. This, my friend is a world class tobacco born out of the magic of Russ O”. The flavor, aroma and burning characteristics have been almost universally praised. Give Magnum O! a try and we feel confident that you’ll be back for more.

Pipe - Missouri Meerschaum. Smell when I opened the tin was that of rubber and leather. It was powerful and caught me off guard. Lights very nicely and smoked well. During the pipe the taste was ok but am not a fan of this one's aftertaste. It lingers and is unpleasant. Not into the room note either. It keeps me curious so i will see if it grows on me but for now 2 stars.
Please sir can i have some more lol

Again another great smoke from this maker, I find it similar to black house, leathery but a sort of sweetness as I smoke. you can taste all the elements through your smoke, ticking all the boxes to the last draw. Again another tin I will be keeping in my rotation.
