    I don't think it's over the top at all, the blend is sweet but still lots of tobacco flavor. I'd recommend it, it's good stuff

    Ditto! I just opened an 8 oz., and once I dried out a little of it (it was extremely moist in my tin), I'm in heaven, though many doubted I'd ever make it! ;)

    I have some of this blend. I notice more of a Wine taste to it. Very good blend.

    I just ordered a tin of this. 8 oz for 15 bucks. If it as good as everyone claims, that is a hell of a deal.

    If you like it, stock up. You never know when this deal will end. They were selling the tins at $25.99 not too long ago. I got 6 8oz. tins of it and of Louisiana Red, too. I may get more!

    Btw, the tobacco is very moist in the tin, so make sure you allow for drying time. It'll taste much better that way.

    Haven't tried Hearth and Home yet. Several blends have caught my attention, chocolet especially. After these reviews, think I'll go ahead.

    They make a lot of great tobacco blends. The Classic Burley Kake is very good if you like Burleys. Old Companion is pretty decent, but I thought it not quite as rich in chocolate flavor as Carter Hall. AJ's Vaper, Rolando's Own, Light Heart Virginia, and Light Heart Burley are others I have enjoyed. I sound like a salesman, but I'm pleased by their selections and since they reduced the prices on their tins, it's also a good deal!

    BTW, there's no chocolate topping on Anniversary Kake. It's just the combination of tobaccos plus the heat and pressure that develops that chocolaty note. Also, don't worry about the blend disappearing. Although we were concerned about availability when we first made it, I've been assured that the supply of the special Virginia won't run out for the foreseeable future. There'll be plenty for years to come.

    Just placed another Anni Kake order. 6 8oz tins. Can't beat the price right now, so I'm hoarding.
