A mixture of fully ripened Virginia and Oriental grades. The special Cavendish treatment guarantees a rich and tasteful smoking delight. The famous Danish cherry wine `Kirsberry' is added to enhance the very special aroma of this blend.

Holger Danske Red Kirsberry . This blend has an amazing and lively aroma , a very sweet one where it's Cherry at the forefront . It is spot on with water content , neither damp or too dry so you can get started immediately . The sizes of the ribbons covers a broad spectrum , right from some very tiny "shavings" up to some longer/thicker pieces . The fact that this is perfect in moistness enables the lighting to be extremely simple , a fairly fast touch with the flame is more than a catalyst for a steady smoke which keeps lit well without needing many re-lights . The flavour of the smoke is a lot more gentle than the initial aroma lead me to believe , yes you can detect the Cherry Wine but it is quite a tame addition , leaving room for the Tobacco flavours to be appreciated . Although the Cherry Wine is quite delicate the taste what comes through is VERY pleasing from it , sweet and candy like . The Nicotine is quite mild , so if you don't like Lady N much this would probably be a nice blend for you , tasty yet not mind blowing . Room-Note is not great yet not horrible , more "standard" for the Tobaccos included with a very slight sweetness to it . I give this 3 stars purely because it lacks "The X-Factor" and becomes tedious after a short while .

I bought this just because i was curious and beacuse I had liked the HD vanilla mango. I liked this tobacco a lot, it has a nice room note and a sweet but still tobaccoish flavor, and a kind of nice bitter wine after taste. Might be somewhat overwhelming if smoked contanstly I suppose, but it's a really good alternative for new pipe smokers seeking for something outside the vanilla, chocolate, cherry kind ot aromatic. and for non aromatic smokers I dare to say that they might enjoy ocasionally when and if they want to smoke an aromatic. Not the best thing ever, but still great stuff.
