Hearth & Home: WhiteKnight 1.75oz

Product Number: 003-493-0066

BlackHouse, Fusilier's Ration; you've probably heard of them. They were Russ Oulette's tributes to Balkan Sobranie 759 and Bengal Slices, respectively, and both have proven tremendously popular. With WhiteKnight Russ adds a third tribute to his portfolio, this one inspired by his memories of Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture, as it was during the late 1970s. To that end, Russ has combined Cyprian Latakia, yellow Virginias, and Macedonian Orientals (including Yenidje), producing a smooth, fragrant, light-medium Latakia smoke.

Even Better Than the 'Original'

Product: Hearth & Home WhiteKnight 1.75oz
I smoked the Balkan Sobranie Original Mixture in the 80's, and find this to be as close to, if not better, than that benchmark tobacco. All the right notes are present, with a melding of strength and smoothness. I've set a few tins aside for now, and... Read More

This is a full flavored tobacco and a pleasant smoke. Not quite as strong as BlackHouse. If you can find this online I highly recommend this tobacco!! The Cyprian Latakia in this blend is outstanding.

Product: Hearth & Home WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Master blender Russ Ouellette reportedly made WhiteKnight as a tribute meant to be reminiscent of a historical variant of Balkan Sobranie. As I've never had that make (1970s version), all I can report of WhiteKnight is what I am familiar with. I cons... Read More

I like this as an occasional break from my usual. It's not overpowering and has a decent taste. I was able to smoke it not too long after opening the tin. I'd buy it again.
Nice mellow smoke

Product: Hearth & Home WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Not great, not bad. It has a nice mellow taste after the first quarter and gets a bit better as you get to the bottom. The only thing I disliked about it really was that it was a very fine almost dust like cut.
As close as it gets

I grew up (high scool and college in the 70's) smoking the original Balkan Sobranie, and in my recherche de temps perdu this is the best replica I have found!
Medium Strength, Great Flavor

Product: Hearth & Home WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Got a tin of this along with BlackHouse. Not quite as strong as the BH, but full of flavor that seems to get better as the pipe burns. I'm betting this would be a great one after a few months of storing.
淡而无味,没有感受到尼古丁

不知为什么这么多人会喜欢白骑士,对我来说淡而无味,劲道也很弱,感觉就像在抽空气一样,失望

This is a fantastic blend. Flavor and notes have already been covered in depth by other reviewers. However, the drama extends beyond the flavor and aroma. You see, WhiteKnight is inexorably linked to Hearth & Home's other Marquee offering, BlackH... Read More

Nothing bad to say about this one. It is fairly mild, and could definitely qualify as an all day English, I prefer this to Dunhil offerings.

WhiteKnight is Russ Ouellette’s tribute blend to Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture. It’s an artfully composed blend of the same tobaccos that went into one of his most memorable and sorely missed tobaccos: bright Virginias, magnificent Macedo... Read More

The blend is claimed to be a reproduction of the now, out-of-reach, Balkan Sobranie. I don't know because I have never tasted that one. This blend tastes like a Balkan/Oriental and is a very good, robust English blend with its all components (Virgini... Read More

I have only been piping a few weeks so take this with a grain of salt. My first non candy baccy was Dunhill Nightcap. This on kinda seems like a milder version. I do like nightcap so I guess I have found my replacement.
Yenidje

Product: Hearth & Home WhiteKnight 1.75oz
Another complex blend with many levels of flavor. The one thing that did stand out consistently for me was the Yenidje. The mild soda note from the Yenidje was there from the char light to the last puff. Very interesting note that I enjoyed, but coul... Read More
