I am not a Hugh fan of cherry. I was given a 5 tin sampler set from a friend who ordered and this was one of the blends. He didn’t like the cherry and so donated the tins for my future blending projects. I can never leave well enough alone. It is not in my nature. To I opened this up loaded it and smoked it. It is a very light smoke with very little hint of cherry. Very underwhelming. In all it would be a great starter blend.

Pipe Used: Captain Black

Love this tobacco. A very easy smoking cherry that does not have a chemical taste or aftertaste. Bowl after bowl this tobacco delights the palate with a Cavendish taste and mild cherry. I highly recommend this blend. One of my favorite cherry blends.

Pipe Used: many

Absolutely enjoyable. As far as cherry blends go, my top ones are this, Cult Blood Red Moon, and Captain Black Red Sky. Nice cherry flavor (to my taste buds, anyway) and the tobacco can be tasted.

Pipe Used: various

Holy cherry this tobacco definitely delivers cherry both in flavor and room note . The cherry flavor is pleasant & sweet like what you would find in an organic cherry soda.
