There are many other blends that have a stronger cherry taste than this, but it's designed to be moderate. It's pleasant to taste and to smell, but if you puff real fast, it gets hot tasting and bites. Well, actually, it can bite a moderate puffer, too. It won't ghost your pipe, and there's not much nicotine in it. Burns a little fast and the light flavor does weaken toward the finish, and you'll notice some grass, toast and citrus from the cavendish. Leaves some moisture in the bowl as it burns a little wet. Needs few relights. The after taste is faint. If you just want the essence of the cherry taste, this may work for you if you can take the bite.
I smoked this from the Tinderbox in the 1980s and found it to be one of the better tasting cherry tobaccos. The cherry flavoring was by no means chemical in taste and while smoking it tasted as it smelled in the pouch. It had a tendency to smoke hot if pushed, but a slow puffing cadence brought out not only the cherry flavoring, but a nice tobacco taste as well. I agree with the blend notes that this tobacco should be listed under the Tinderbox database as it is still readily available throughout their chain. Recommended as a nice flavored cavendish any time of the day.
My first non-drugstore tobacco. When I was 17 I went to the mall to find something more fancy to smoke. Being as I was still new to pipe smoking I still only liked aromatics and this fit the bill nicely. The smell in the jar was wonderful, the taste was cherry and a light woody flavor. Whenever I smoked this I always received many complements on the aroma. I smoked many ounces of this before I was introduced to english and oriental tobaccos.
Since I was younger the Tinder Box has left my town, but I would still like to pick up a bag of this to relive my early experiences. This is the best cherry flavored tobacco I was able to sample, I tried everything at the drugstore first and this was a big step up in quality. Recommended for those who enjoy cherry aromatics.
