Gawith Hoggarth Cherry and Vanilla . From the description I think "oh joy , ANOTHER Cherry aromatic" , HOWEVER I must admit I am quite impressed by it ! Firstly , upon opening it I can ascertain that the usual "Sledge Hammer" of Cherries that goes hand in hand with Cherry Aro's is not present , in fact what I actually get is a gentle fruity note of Cherry with a subtle Vanilla addition . To be fair , this one is a little too moist , that said I leave mine to air for a few hours . Once the right level has been achieved I greedily fill my Pipe and set to . Ignition of this one (providing you let it air enough) is a simple task , quite a shortish go with the flame is just enough of a catalyst for a steady smoke . The burn is a really even one , not extinguishing itself unless left unattended too long . The temperature of the smoke is neither too warm or too cool , a pleasing "mid temperature" which can be enjoyed at full throttle without becoming exacerbated by Tongue Bite . Now , on to taste , superb ! Like the unlit Aroma it IS NOT a massive Cherry bomb , actually the Cherry is very mild in comparison to other Cherry Aro's leaving some room for the Vanilla to come to fruition in the mix ! Because the aromatic side is not strong , the tobaccos can also be appreciated in this very thick/creamy smoke . Vitamin N ? Again flawless , not indomitable , not weak but just right ! On to the room-note , very full and also (a negative for non-smokers) it has a fairly thick consistency in the air , so I suggest that this is enjoyed alone ! Due to the gently added aromatics the pipe remains quite clear of Ghosting unless regularly smoked without maintaining it . This one scores so highly for me because it is completely unorthodox for a Cherry aromatic , Bite free , not harsh , no and gently sweet !

Mild aromatic taste and smell. Good for the new smoker without offending non- smokers.

Mild to Medium Medium Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

The burleys are tangy and nutty sweet while the cavendish is smooth, but not very sweet. They play second fiddle to the toppings. The cherry is smooth and fruity sweet with no chemical taste. The vanilla plays a supporting role, but kind of weakens near the finish, unlike the cherry. Burns well and fairly cool. Needs some dry time, and leaves some moisture. Nice after taste and room note. Two and a half stars.
