Gawith Hoggarth - Kendal Dark Shag Black Cherry.

The blend is mostly dark brown, with a few light specks, and a potent aromatic smell. Mine arrived at a good moisture level.

The first positive is the lighting/burn: very simple to ignite and the burn is faultless. Another good point is the temperature and bite: a cool smoke with no bite. The flavour of the smoke, to my surprise, isn't anywhere near as false tasting as the pouch-note had me expecting. There is a cherry flavour, but this is somewhat countered by a fiery Kentucky note. If I'm honest, I find it quite a crowded taste. The cherry develops a little strength as the bowl burns, but this only adds to the messiness of the flavour. The smoke also leaves me with a disgusting aftertaste.

The room-note's ok, and an area that separates this from the usual cherry aromatic is nicotine: above medium.

This would suit folks who want both nicotine and flavour, but is too much for me:

Not recommended.
