Very Mild Medium to Strong Mild Very Pleasant

Like most of the other reviewers of this blend, my package was also a free sampler. Guess no one actually buys this blend and after smoking a third of a bowl I can understand why.

I knew this was going to be an unpleasant experience simply because I don't care for cased blends with fruity taste. Still, in an effort to offer an honest evaluation for the briar bretheren who enjoy cherry blends, let me just say that this one may please. It stayed lit well (too well, I was praying it'd go out on its own), and did offer a tobacco/cherry flavor. Additionally, it did not bite me..... But, I didn't really give it time to.

It's similar to SP Cherry but better , imo . I had no issues with the blend at all . It lit well , smoked cool and dry enough . The flavor is what these type blends are about and the flavor here was good . If I were to choose between this or SO Cherry [ which is also good ] , I'd choose this ... it is a little better all around . The Cherry flavoring isn't over done and there is tobacco flavor in the blend . Basically , this is not a waylaid cherry flavored blend and will not offend anyone other than tobacco " purists " . It smokes cool and dry

Pipe Used: Cob , briar , Stone Pipe

Similar Blends: Smokers Pride Cherry but better.

This blend is very moist in the package, and has a nice aroma upon opening the pack. The cherry taste is a little milder than the smell, and I got a light grassy Virginia citrus here and there, some nutty sweetness from the burley, which isn't the norm for fruit cased products. I don't really notice the black cavendish, so it must be unsweetened. Burns cool, clean and very smooth at a moderate pace, though you may want to dry it just a mite first. The cherry flavor is consistent from start to finish with no weakening or harsh spots. Has very little nicotine, and won't bite or get harsh. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. This is not a flavor bomb, but it is an all day work and play, fairly gentle sweet smoke. Has a nice room note and after taste.

Very Mild Very Strong Very Mild Tolerable to Strong

A typical aromatic. It smells nice in the pouch and isn't too wet if you leave the pouch open for a day or so. The aroma of the flavoring at first light is a little on the chemical/nasty side, but quickly subsides into a more subdued verson of some chemist's vision of what cherry should smell like. The middle 3rd of the bowl is the sweet spot where you can taste some of the virginia tobacco. It is a very mild taste which can easily lead to over-puffing to obtain more flavor. The bottom of the bowl is a soggy, rank mess. There are much better cherry tobaccos out there, for instance PS Cherry, Edward's Toasted Cherry, and Amphora Full Aroma.

Nice chunky ribbon cut, very nice cherry aroma, a little too moist right out of the pouch. This was so sweet it almost had sugar crystals on it, but the flavor from the lit tobacco in the pipe was very good, plenty of tobacco taste with the cherry. A little tough to keep lit, gooey as it is, but with careful, slow puffing, this can be a nice experience, and generally enjoyed by others around you.

I would get this again if it was available over the counter where I live, but I don't think I'd bother to order it.

If you like this sort of thing, and it is available where you live, by all means give it a whirl. I too got it as a sample, otherwise I would have never tried it. It's pretty good in a cob, with a cup of coffee. If you are a fan of simple, sweet aromatics, you might love it. Go slowly, or it will indeed nip at you. I would not recommend this in a briar, as it smokes wet.

I received this as a part of the Sampler. All in all, a decent cherry flavored tobacco. A little too much cherry for me, however.

I mixed this tobacco with an equal part of Lane's Golden Cavendish, and the result was a mild, lightly cherry flavored smoke, with enough tobacco taste. Although I have a modest collection of pipes, I find most of the burley blends smoke best in a cob. This concoction was no exception.

Blended, this was a good smoke. I will buy it to blend as described.

As far as cherry pipe tobacco blends go, this one tastes better than any that I have tried. Although heavily cased, one can still taste the tobacco during the smoke. As with any heavily cased aromatic, this one will bite the tongue, which is why I no longer smoke them. However, if you are willing to tolerate the bite, this one is about the best tasting drug store cherry blends available.

After smoking the sample Cherry blend I purchased from my B&M yesterday I dug through my armoire this morning trying to find my jar of Captain Black Cherry to compare the toppings but instead I found this, it was a free pouch I was sent by Sutliff years ago and forgot about. This was better than the Stokkebye Cherry but I do prefer CB Cherry to both. Burley and Virginia's cased with a Cherry liquor, nothing over the top and not incendiary so that's the good. I do prefer Captain Black's mix of Black Cavendish and a more candy like Cherry than the liquor topping but this was not horrible. Another two star Cherry blend but one I am glad I got for free and didn't make the mistake of buying a tub.

Age When Smoked: 5 years or so

Purchased From: Free from Sutliff

I've only tried two brands of cherry flavored blends. One was a Middleton blend, and this Dutch Masters offering. This was the better of the two, but I really didn't care much for either of them. I got this in a two for one packaged deal, and it was less than five bucks. The cherry tastes really come through in this blend, but it's a flavor akin to a cough syrup I'd used as a child. Burns well, not too much dottle. No bite to speak of. Nic level was really low. Kinda like candy in your pipe. I guess you can tell I wasn't all that impressed. If you try this, use a pipe you're not real fond of, cause it will really ghost your pipe for several bowls before you get rid of the cherry flavors...

Like some of the other reviewers, I received this as part of my Altadis sampler pack of tobaccos. It's been quite a while since I smoked it so this review is being written from memory. In the pouch C.C. is a very moist tobacco, a little too moist for my tastes. It required several relights throughout the smoke.

The best part of this tobacco is the taste. It doesn't overwhelm you with cherry casing, it just has a nice cherry flavor with tobacco flavor in the background and I found that I often wanted another bowl right after I finished the first one. It does leave some wet dottle in the bottom of the pipe, however, so give your pipes adequate drying time.

Pricing on C.C. is good but it has become very hard to find. Mars Cigars used to carry it but they have been out of stock for a while. I think Payless Pipes in New Orleans might have canisters, I will have to check them out.

Scores for D.M. Cherry Cavendish: flavor- 16 of 20; burn- 6 of 10; price- 8 of 10. 30 points equals a good * rating for Dutch Masters Cherry Cavendish.

I stumbled on this in a store that mostly sells ciggarettes. It was a two for one deal, so I thought, why not? I gotta tell you that it's surprisingly good. It's definitely cherry flavored, but not in a bad way. Upon opening the pouch, the cherry smell is almost overwhelming, and I thought it was going to be hard to light, as it was quite moist. Gotta love those PPG's. It actually lit fairly easy, produced a copious amount of smoke, and didn't leave a goopy mess, though I thought it might. Letting it dry out a bit, made it even better. Of all the cherry blends I've tried over the years, this one is the best of them all. I was getting tired of all of the vanilla and or coconut topped aromatics out there, and this was a nice change of pace. I would definitely buy this one again. I wonder if they sell this in a tub?

After years of trying to find a great smoking aromatic and not being a cherry favor fan. I have to tell all that DMCC is superb. This blend has a complex nice mix of African, Burley and cavendish. They marry together to make a sweet but serious smoke with a great aroma of black forrest cake. This is a rich tobacco. And unlike thier cigars is top shelf.It is funny that the best aroamtic is by Dutch Masters Machine processed great tobacco at its finest. We should not shurg our shoulder to such a inexpensive blend. This is really good stuff. And you can often get two for one. Jr Cigars keeps enough of this on hand. As for aromatics I would give this one FIVE STARS if I could.

One of the freebies from Altadis. I decided to try some after enjoying the Dutch Masters Whiskey. A much better than average cherry blend. It has some real tobacco flavor as well. As with every cherry blend I've ever tried watch out for the dreaded tongue-bite. Otherwise it's a good one.

As a lover of both stout blends and well-crafted aromatics, I've long sought a cherry-based blend with a taste to match the room note. Most fruity blends seem to put so much effort into being enjoyable to everyone sitting around the smoker that they neglect the palate of the one lighting up - but that is not the case with this blend!

When I first opened the pouch, I wasn't struck with the wave of artificial cherry scent that accompanies most cherry aromatics. Instead, it was sweet but not overpowering - Dutch Masters Cherry Cavendish is a mild blend, a good walk-about smoke, with the ease of burley and cavendish well-blended and topped with a more subtle approach to cherry than most aromatics seem to muster. It won't give you the fix of an English blend, but for those times you're piping among the uninitiated, it will endear you to them and still please your tongue.

I had no problem with bite and soon found myself needing a new pouch. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone seeking a quality cherry aromatic at more affordable prices.

This was another one of the tobaccos included in my free Altadis sampler and I must admit, going in my expectations weren't too high. Dutch Masters is a name I associate more with cigars than with pipe tobacco. And even though I enjoy aromatics, my results with cherry ones has been spotty at best.

D.M.C.C. is a good looking tobacco in the pouch, with both light and dark cavendishes and some brown VA mixed in. The pouch aroma is also appealing, not sickenly sweet as in some cased blends. The tobacco packs pretty well and comes alive after two lights. After that it is average for an aromatic, which means it takes a few more relights than a drier burley blend.

The flavor starts out with a sweetness from the cherry casing, without being overbearing or cloying. It continues that way through the bowl until about the last 1/3, when the VA starts asserting itself. D.M.C.C. avoids the bitterness that is the bane of so many cherry tobaccos when the casing has burned off. It finishes up with a very small amount of dottle and a pipe that is not gooey or overly moist.

Ratings for D.M.C.C.; flavor- 14 out of 20; lighting and burn- 7 of 10; value; 8 of 10. A total of 29 gives Dutch Master's Cherry Cavendish a * rating.
