i got a tin of this blend on a recent business trip to germany...it is not available in the uk. the tobacco is a flake not broken flake as per the review notes. on opening the tin there is a strong, not surprisingly,aroma of cherry. very nice in my opinion. the flake was on the dry side from the tin but not overly so. on lighting up the taste was initially very sweet however as the smoke progressed the taste of the tobacco came through pushing cherry flavour to the background no toungebite if taken slowly......i like this tobacco...it is a very good danish style aromatic.....3 stars.....pity is is so hard to get though!!!

This is the best cherry flake tobacco I have tried to date, the flake is top quality with cool slow burning, the cherry casing is not too sweet or overwhelming, it is creamy with a slight bitterness undertone, very enjoyable cherry aromatic with high quality tobacco, Borkum Riff are (..Only?) Good in flake tobacco. If you like cherry blend try this one.

Still I have to try the Vanilla one from the same blender.

Admiral's Flake Cherry . My wife bought me this whilst we were in Almeria Spain and I find it amazing ! When I opened the tin I was impressed with the build and appearance of the flakes , a nice dark colour with medium thickness and a superb moisture level so any extra airing time is completely redundant . Tin aroma ? ...... I would go far as saying it is the best smelling tobacco I have tried as of yet , the cherry is there but not at all strong or overly sweet as some cherry tobaccos can be , in fact the cherry added flavour with this smells very true and not at all false . This one takes to lighting with great ease and gives a very steady burn leaving a grey ash . Taste is superb , like the unlit aroma the cherry is not at all indomitable or false , more of a sensual addition to the great Burley and Kentucky taste which are at a great equilibrium with one and other . If chosen to inhale it slides down with ease and doesn't make ones head spin . The room note is utterly brilliant , a nice traditional Burley and Kentucky with a fruity edge to it without it being too strong and heavy to cause offence to others in the room . As the cherry is not at all harsh or strong it doesn't ghost the pipe much unless it is smoked constantly without cleaning . The only negative with this (for me) is that I can't get it here in the U.K !

Dreadful; dreadful; dreadful. In some film or another that I saw once, a woman says to a man: “I wouldn't marry you if the world were covered in p*ss and you had the only tree-house.” Well: I wouldn't smoke this rubbish if …

I have a feeling that in most navies - save perhaps the Swiss or the Tibetan Navy - anyone smoking this in the ward room would be made to walk the plank, admiral or not.

I love Borkum Riffs Admirals Vanilla Flake, which I have rated with 4 Stars. Eventually I bought The Cherry Falke of the same brand, which has a too strong casing and peeled my tongue off....

So I rather stick with my Vanilla Flake, which I smoke almost every day.....
