The third entry in the Ole Shenandoah series is Appalachian Berry. The blend is predominantly black cavendish made with premium quality Green River Burley. A modicum of bright Virginia is added to make the blend easy to keep lit. It has a robust berry flavor added that gives off an amazing room note, but comes through gently on the palate. Ole Shenandoah Appalachian Berry is easily one of the most pleasant aromatic tobaccos we've ever tried!

The Green River burley is processed into black cavendish, though you hardly notice it except for a little earth, nuts and some sugar. The bright Virginia sends a whisper of grass and citrus. The berry topping sublimates the tobaccos, and has a little depth. Has very little nicotine. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool and clean at just below a moderate pace as the tobacco is a little moist. Has a consistent flavor. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights. Has a decent after taste, and can be an all day smoke.

It advertises Berry and that's what you get. It smells great in the tin, slightly damp to the touch. Smoked several times and notices that despite the slight dampness of the tobacco, absolutely no bite, and it's a tobacco that burns to a white ash. Tastes as described and not candy sweet like a sugar injection, but more like a berry fruit sweetness. Told the room note is rather pleasant. "Cool" smoke and flavor. Will buy again and would recommend.

Berry good indeed! Black Cavendish, Virginia and a shot of Burley make for a good smoke. By far the best smoke in this series for my money. Sweet tin note brings to mind fresh wild black berries, and this carries over in the flavor as well. No bite here for me, just a pleasant fruity smoke. Good room note will garner positive comments even from non smokers of the pipe. The blend is quality tobacco and quality blending. Will grab more of this in my next order.

I had fun tasting all of the Ole Shenandoa blends (easily gotten at pipesandcigars.com). They have great tin art and really nicely put together aromatics with crisp, tobacco taste, yet with aromatic agents that are not too sweet. Lane makes these blends.

I've never had (that I know of) Appalachian Berries before, so, I don't know if this blend is true to form. I do know that it has some fairly stout Burley and a whisper of quality Virginia mixed in for an all day type aromatic smoke that was actually suited for my evening after dinner dessert needs. No calories either!
