Hearth & Home: Fusilier's Ration 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-493-0070

Master Blender Russ Ouellette delivers a masterpiece in Hearth & Home's Fusilier's Ration — a mixture honoring one of his favorite blends of all time: Bengal Slices. Smoky Cyprian Latakia is married to fragrant Orientals and yellow Virginias before being paired with a tinge of unflavored black Cavendish and lightly dressed with an old-fashioned topping. It's just enough to influence the flavors and room note without being overtly noticeable. Finally, all of these are hot pressed together into an exquisite crumble cake, merging the tobaccos and creating a blend all its own.

Bengal Slices without the pretense

Product: Hearth & Home Fusilier's Ration 1.75oz
I love Bengal Slices, but this seems to be the less refined, less cultured brother of Bengal Slices. There is less of an orientals taste present, which I feel brings out a little more of the Latakia taste. It looses a little (just a little) smoothnes... Read More

Russ Ouellette really knows his stuff. Bengal Slices was a blend that he really enjoyed back in the day. So much so, that he decided to create a homage blend as a tribute to that very memorable tobacco. He called it Fusilier’s Ration, a name I found ... Read More
Old-fashioned top note

Old-fashioned top note : Tonquin Bean (?) A little bit milder than Bengal Slices (for me anyway) but very good crumble cake latakia mixture. Easy to pack and to light. Recommended.
Winter rations.

My first experience with Fusilier's Ration followed my already ensconced love of Bengal Slices. I'm unclear as to which of these blends came first for Russ Ouellette, but both deserve to be tried. Bengal Slices is much better IMO (see my review), but... Read More
a landmark tobacco on all levels

Top note; hay bales, vanilla, chocolate brownie hues. Tonka bean topping? Middle notes; mahogany, peat, subtle licorice under tones. The burn is exceptional-compare in quality to 3Ps. From start to finish a linear bliss, with no dramatic change as w... Read More

Product: Hearth & Home Fusilier's Ration 1.75oz
I love the cakes. Smokes incredibly well. No moisture, no bite. Very smooth and sweet- not overly sophisticated. I would say this could be a great way for a newer smokers to become familiar with both latakia and cake-style tobacco. A tad too s... Read More

My dad smoked Bengal Slices in the 80s.. I bought him a tin of the remake and when I finally got around to asking him his thoughts his response was something like "Everything must've tasted better when I was young.." or something like that. Having t... Read More

spicy and "spicy" a bit bitter sweet with a hint of red and black pepper and some kind of liquor like a cognac that leaves me craving more!
