The cherry taste overpowers the almond. There was something artificial about it, too. The gold cavendish is toasty with a touch of citrus and honey, though it much sublimated by the toppings. Hardly has any nicotine. Burns a little fast, fairly hot, but even sipping it doesn't help the flavor much. Not very wet near the end, and needs few relights. An all day smoke made by Lane.

Good for someone who loves aromatics and cherry. Some reviewers have noted that the cherry flavor is overpowering and while it's certainly prominent in the tobacco, I can still get the almond flavor out of a smoke. The smell of the tobacco itself is amazing but unfortunately it's not as much so when lit (still pleasant). I've noticed that it sometimes has a tendency to burn hot so I make sure to smoke this with a bit more care. Pretty inexpensive and all the guys at Tinderbox are cool so it's definitely worth going down there and giving it a try!

I find this blend to be better than what some of these reviews have stated. The cherry almond flavor is occasionally quite noticeable, and it has a nice smooth aroma to it. I personally really enjoyed it, for my beginner aromatic phase anyway. If you however move on to the big English blends, you may find this a bit lacking, but it's still a good cherry aromatic.

Here's a an AROmatic cherry blend that's not half bad. I detect amereto and cherry flavorings that seem to work together nice. The tobacco alone looks to be burley, cavendish and some black Virginia chunks. Like any sickly sweet aromatic blend, this can burn quite hot in the pipe. Overall it was a nice aromatic that is sure to please those around you. I mixed the rest I had with good ol Carter Hall and it's incredibly good now.

This flavor combination is revolting. Way too much almond for my tastes and far to sweet. Reminds me of those cheap, nasty Chinese Almond cookies.

Look up casing in the dictionary and there will be a picture of a pouch of Cherry Almond, whoa! I do enjoy cherry tobaccos from time to time and I enjoy Anniversary from Tinderbox, but this was too much for me. The smell in the pouch was sweet like Cherry Ambrosia from Macbaren, but the base tobacco is very plain and the cherry aroma does not translate to actual flavor, only smoke.

You could do worse than this: see Middletons Cherry; but there are much better cherry aromatics out there, even at the same store.
