A fantastic blend of the finest Virginia, a superb Burley and Cavendish. On the top of the blend we have carefully added a special cherry aroma and some very fine Jamaica Rum. In combination, the top flavor and the tobaccos give you a pleasant and gentle aromatic smoke.

This tobacco was my second and I found it to be much better than my first aromatic. The flavouring was very evident from opening the pack and remained almost throughout the smoke. It burnt well and stayed lit throughout. It wont appeal to nicotine addicts but for a pleasurable smoke I cant personally fault it.

The least of the Mac Baren mixtures I have tried. They can produce very good aromatics, but cherry flavour is a problem. The only successful use of cherry flavour is Larsen`s Classic - but that is because there is just the barest hint of the flavour, more an appeal to the imagination than to the senses.

Very cautiously recommended, to lovers of cherry aromatics only.

Well it smells like cherries, first light taste like cherries, third puff though not so much. It just keeps getting worst as you smoke it. The only reason I'm giving it 2 stars is because it doesn't bite, and I have tried a lot worst than this.

Very unstable quality: for three times I tried to smoke it, only once mixture was in good state with acceptable humidity and burned cool. Two other times tobacco was very wet, and after small drying it lost most of its flavoring, burned hot and constantly tried to extinguish.

This tobacco produces a nice smell, but sensed mostly by the nearby people and just little by the smoker. After several times the smell begins to annoy as the most artificaly flawored blends. Produces a lot of tar.

I smoked this under the Cherry Flake moniker from pipesandcigars.com. I'm not sure I really go for cherry blends but this one was different. The flavoring was not like red gummy bears, cough syrup, jolly ranchers, etc., but more like sour Michigan cherries. Not that the blend was sour, more that the blend is not overwhelmingly sweet. The tobacco flavor comes through in an understated viginia sort of way. The cherry flavor in and out 'till about half way, then almost totally dissapears. It is a good blend to try if you like danish style tobaks, or are smoking stuff from walgreens and are getting tired of that. I like this alot, dispite the tounge bite...SMOKE SLOWLY!!!! 7 of 10 (because it smokes hot, otherwise an 8)

Very mild, only a hint of cherry (more might be problematic), can be smoked very slowly - stays lit very well. When smoked gently almost lacking bite. Not a great smoke but will do for a break between full flavors.

i liked everything about this tobacco except from the bites, the taste is pretty good a mild cherry not overwhelming artificial cherry and the strength level is satisfactory but again this blend bites like hell no matter how slow u'll smoke it

09/19/2005 This mixture consists of a lot of ribbon and coarse-cut cherry Burley and Cavendish Aromatics with a bit(about 10-15%)of broken (Virginia?) Flake added. It is quite tasty and more the Danish style rather than American. However, I am convinced there is no way to make a Cherry flavored tobacco without it being a biter. I am going with four stars in spite of this attribute as it is the best Cherry blend I have encountered so far. As far as I know this can only be purchased from http://www.pipesandcigars.com. Update- 11/05/2006: Down-rated due to tongue-bite issues. If you can smoke most MacB's blends safely and enjoy Cherry flavored real tobacco I recommend it. If you have a tender tongue steer clear.

Reading the description of this blend provided by Mac Baren it was difficult to believe they were describing the tobacco in the bowl of my pipe. Whether it be from the Virginias, or simply the fact that this blends burns very hot, it will bite, so take it easy. The bite was enough for me give this blend a low recommendation, but after the first few puffs during lighting, one can detect a faintly sweet taste of cherry, but after the furnace is fully lit, the smoke takes on a very harsh taste that lasts clear to the bottom of the bowl.

I could be that I haven't tried the right Mac Baren aromatic, but this is third one, and by far the worst of the 3. At least the other 2 didn't burn so hot that it made it difficult to hold on to the bowl. Even though cherry flavored aromatics are not one of my favorites, I've smoked some (Lane and Altadis) that are far superior. There are some that may find this blend to their liking, but I simply can't recommend it.
