Started smoking pipes after a 20 year hiatus. Read lots of reviews and felt that the "Pros" smoked English blends and the youngsters smoked aromatics. I was prejudiced. So, decided to try lots of blends and realized that I LOVE Burley. Yet, fresh berries om my cereal every Gave berry good a try and found a beautiful burley tobacco with a very slight hint of berry, tin note and only at the very beginning. The r last 2/3s was excellent burley that smoked perfectly, NO bite or gurgle and minimal berry, but yes, it is there! Mild Nic, just right for the morning and afternoon. I want to be a "PRO" and be a real man and only smoke strong English blends with lots of Latakia, but, I am almost embarrassed to say..."I LOVE THIS" I bought a pound and smoke some every day. I put this in a "Ruthenberg" pipe, 3 different shapes, but large capacity chamber and it is heaven! Brian makes his airway just perfect, probably the best smoking pipes I have ever smoked, and yes, I smoke my English blends in Jess and Ivarsson and Dunhills. Just buy it and enjoy it, it is a winner!

As with many pipe smokers, I began smoking a pipe with OTC aromatics such as Captain Black and Borkum Riff. The Borkum Riff nearly ended my pipe smoking adventures, but fortunately I ventured into the realms of trying to find stronger tobaccos (I don't inhale pipe smoke) in order to quit smoking cigarettes. I eventually realized that very high quality pipe tobacco is available, and it certainly doesn't taste like Borkum Riff. After this, I pretty much completely abandoned smoking aromatics due to most of them being goopy messes of poor quality tobacco masked with a chemical tasting topping. After years of smoking almost every stronger blend imaginable, I realized that many of these tobaccos had a room note that was somewhat offensive to those who do not smoke.

Thus my quest for an aromatic that had a good dose of nicotine, great flavor, and a pleasant room note began. I did my research and found this Berry Good No. 210 to be a good candidate judging from what I was reading on the reviews. I purchased a tin, and for whatever reason didn't touch it for over 2 1/2 years. Then I decided I would give an aromatic another shot and cracked open the tin. It had a very very pleasant tin note, and the tobacco wasn't goopy at all! It took light right away, stayed lit, and had a great Burley tobacco flavor with a very slight vanilla and berry flavor that wasn't chemical tasting in nature. The room note was fantastic, and best of all for me, it still had a good dose of nicotine! The quality of the leaf was outstanding, and absolutely no tongue bite whatsoever.

My past negative experiences with aromatics like Borkum Riff scorching my tongue like a belt sander with a chemical tasting mess of horrible quality tobacco were nullified. This Berry Good is a tobacco of very high quality, with actual honest to goodness tobacco taste, and slight hint of sweet berry and vanilla far in the background through the smoke. And it smells great to those around you if you are on a stroll or smoking indoors.

4 stars for an aromatic, 3 for a Burley blend.

The raspberry/vanilla toppings sublimate the tobaccos, and after you smoke a little of it, the nutty, toasted burley kisses your taste buds a little. The raspberry is more noticeable than the vanilla. Has a very mild nic-hit. Won't bite or get harsh. Burns at a moderate pace, cool and clean, and evenly with very little moisture at the bottom of the bowl. Has a fairly consistent flavor. Needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant after taste and room note. Can be an all day smoke, or at least a change of pace from stronger blends in other genres. A blend best smoked slowly for full appreciation.

This is a delightfully light C&D blend that reminds me of the old Middleton's Cherry Blend... but, Berry Good is much better (IMO), due to the quality of the leaf and the light sweetened leaf.

As is the case with most enhanced blends, the added flavoring is strongest at first light and then settles. The Vanilla/Raspberry notes are never strong but always lurking. A nice clean burn all the way to the bottom of the bowl is also a pleasure enhancer.

It is easy to see why C&D Berry Good is one of their new top sellers. For more gusto in the smoke, try mixing it half and half with Five Brothers. Now that makes for an after dinner dessert that is yummy.

To call this an aromatic is a bit of a misnomer - the name really makes one think this is going to be some fruit-drenched mess. Not so. It is a burley blend with a LITTLE topping adding for a hint of dessert flavor and a compliment-winning room-note (My wife passed by me smoking this and her direct quote was "D**n that smells good!").

The real tobacco taste is in the forefront though, especially in the 2nd half of the bowl when most of the berry/vanilla casing has worn off. This is very tasty, burns extremely well, and only bites if you get WAY TOO eager with your puffing. I'm not much of a burley-phile generally, but Berry Good! could change that for me.

This is one of those blends that is honest and seems to garner unanimous opinion. I stand alongside the four previous reviewers: this is a tasty burley blend with excellent smoking properties and a wondferful aroma. I've been smoking English blends for the last 15 years and only recently began exploring aromatics. Of the 6 I tried this is one I return to most often and have reordered. As mentioned earlier it is an 'honest' blend: no gastronomical subtleties or complexities. The ingredients are few but work well together. The topping, which is more noticeable in the pouch rather than in the pipe, seems to waft in and out depending on how hard you draw: little sips bring more of the aromatic flavor. Unlike some aromatics I haven't encountered a case of tongue bite with this one, even after 3 successive midsized bowls. The aroma it leaves is pleasant and my wife thinks it's nice (big female approval here). It burns to a clean ash and is delightful. Definetely recommended.

Being a fan of Black and Burley blends as well as Raspberry flavoring, I had purchased BG smoked some and packed it up in a ball jar. Recently I had some company over and decided to try this again as the room note was fantastic and would please everyone. After a year in the jar the flavoring has been turned down a notch so it's not as cloying and the young tobacco's have aged enough (as much as a Black and Gold mixture can) smoothing out BG and reducing relights. Not an everyday smoke for me since it is so mild and lacking nicotine but for mixed company, it more than makes up for any shortcomings by way of fantastic room note that the ladies just adored!

I'm new to the pipe smoking scene and am a fan of aromatics. This sounded delicious in the description and I was really looking forward to receiving it in the mail. Upon opening the blend it smelled absolutely delicious and I was looking forward to the taste. It is a nice smooth blend, not to wet, not to dry, easy to keep alight, unfortunately the taste was quite disappointing compared to the tobacco aroma. I couldn't find any berry taste. I have yet to experience the aroma whilst passively smoking.

A great aromatic that I am glad I found, and would recommend. Love the berry flavor, my first of that type of flavor.

The tin note is strong and delightful, I was able to smell rasberry rather easily, and hints of others that I couldn't place but recognized. A little on the dry side, but no issues. Packed well, lit easily, and stayed lit. Not a goopy mess.

The flavor is a little strong in the beginning, but blends nicely with the tobacco, for a great, tasty smoke. The room note is very pleasant, and I received some compliments of the smell.

Did get a small amount of tongue bite, but I believe that it was more self inflicted from smoking too fast, and not inherent to the tobacco.

Excellent mild burley! Great nutty tobacco taste with some sweetness from the cav and the topping. The topping is applied very lightly, unlike most aros, lending a slight sweetness and sublte flavor. This is almost more of a classic codger style burley than an aromatic. Great flavor. Great burning qualities. No Bite. I always give this to friends or co workers that want to start smoking a pipe because of how forgiving and enjoyable this tobacco is.

Yet another update 3/17/2017

I am removing another star from this. I just finished the 8oz I just purchased and it wasn't easy. The vanilla coming from the Cavendish was all that was enjoyable to me. The berry topping just came off as artificial. So from three different trials of this blend. The first was fantastic, this 8oz was terrible. The sample sent me from a friend lied somewhere in between.

The bottom line is I will no longer order more of this as I just don't know what to expect. I think if one does really enjoy the berry topping that is on this blend, then that person would be happy with all three of these trials that I had. I only like it if it is lightly applied and that is something I can't know upon ordering. So I am dropping an additional star and will leave this one at two stars for inconsistency.

Update 11/30/2015

I am removing a star from this one as two separate trials of this blend following my review have left me perplexed.

To start, I was so enthused by this that I ordered 8 ounces and was responsible for purchases by quite a few forum friends to whom I raved about this blend. My first puff of this newly purchased 8 ounces was yuck. It was heavily topped. The burley was disguised. Otherwise, it performed similar. I still have some of this 8 ounce purchase despite giving bits and pieces of it away over time.

Enter about a month ago, a sample from a forum friend who asked if I ever tried it as he was sending me something else I had yet to try. I told him my tale and he decided that I should try his sample as it will give me a third opportunity to evaluate the blends.

I tried this third sample and found it in between the two. What did I learn from this? I don't know. My first suspicions is that this is a consistency problem with C & D aromatics as I had a similar experience with Autumn Evening, but I was reminded that all three of the samples I had tried were bulk options and it is impossible to determine what happened between when it was made to when it got to my door. Including how much time it sat around.

I guess I won't know until or unless I try some various tinned samples of the same. I don't see this happening any time soon. So for now, I am dropping a star, because It can't stand at four stars, but it is still a good aromatic, and at times, great. Plenty of nicotine and burley body backing up the sweetness.

Original Review 1-10-2013

I think this is a wonderful Burley blend that happens to be an aromatic. I don't know whether my four stars is for a burley blend or as an aromatic blend, but I think moreso for the former as I think true Aromatic fanciers may find this to lack the sweetness that the burleyphile will love.

The quality of the burley is great as can be expected from C & D, the nicotine is just right IMO and the taste is great. My only complaint, and it is quite minor, is that it tends to burn fast. It does not burn hot though and I think it may be impossible to get this one to bite. At least it was for me.

When my C&D sampler arrived last week and when I opened up the box the smell of this blend was the first to greet me. It's got a wonderful sweet berry smell but not too sweet. I was checking it out through the plastic bag it was in and I thought it looked kind of moist but I noticed it wasn't sticky cause the tobacco was loose. When I opened it up I found that it wasn't moist at all, just right. I loaded up my bowl and went to work on it. It lights up great and I didn't have to relight it after I tamped it down after the first light. I puffed away patiently and really enjoyed this aromatic experience. After I lit it up the first thing I noticed was the vanilla and I loved it but I was wondering "where's the berry" Then BAM!! There's the raspberry. I'm a fan of aromatics and burley's and this is a very good one, oops Berry Good one. It burns cool and if you don't try to rush it or suck to hard you get the vanilla flavor. It smokes very smooth and the room note is great. It fills the air with a nice sweet smell. The burley tastes great and it's not over cased with syrup. I wondered if they didn't just put the burley into a vat of fresh berries. I find it a fun smoke and prefer smoking it in my smaller pipes when I'm walking around town or just sitting somewhere reading a book or playing cribbage with my friends. And I think most women will like the smell.

I was very reluctant to try this blend. I am usually of the opinion that food should taste like food, and tobacco should well... taste like tobacco. I still hold that opinion but am finding my self making one exception. There is some great burly taste with this blend, some subtle nuttiness and a small bit of earthiness that I like in a good burly blend. The slight vanilla and berry taste only dance in the background but do leave this blend fresh tasting from the top to the bottom (something unusual for a burly blend). The blend smokes very cool, and does not bite in the least bit. There is a slightly fruity smell to the tin, but I do not smell any of the vanilla that I get in the smoke. The cut is standard for Cornell & Diehl, with nice broken pieces of long leafs, but it does also have some stems. The room note is out of this world, I defy yo to find a person that wont like it. As for this Latakia lover I have to admit this one is darn good.

If you like burley, want something to smoke around non-smokers, but don't like strong toppings/casings, "goop" and propylene glycol, this seems perfect. It has a light berry flavor at first and then tastes like good burley with a bare hint of topping farther down the bowl. I smoked this in a bar the other night and the two non-smokers who were with me said that it smelled very good to them and I had no complaints from anyone else. I usually try to pick something with a nice room note when I am in public, partly so that I'll be allowed to smoke a pipe and partly out of consideration for others, but have not found anything that non-smokers like the room note of and that I enjoyed this much. As far as smoking it on a regular basis for pure enjoyment, I'd probably give it a 3.5, as it's tasty but not astounding, but it's worthy of a 4 overall with the room note factored in.

I ordered a half pound of this a few weeks ago and have just re-ordered more prior to writing this review. I must say that the berry flavour is very light in this however the tobacco flavour is great. it has a wonderful burley base and is very friendly to those around you. I've been in a mood for a heavier aromatic however I keep being drawn back to this. I smoke aromatics and english blends in the winter and fall (yes I'm one of those who can smoke anything) and virginias and burley in the summertime, however I think this is an aromatic that I will be able to smoke all year long. very good.

Must update this tobacco. I have been smoking this for over a year now in all kinds of tempatures and conditions and I think that this is probably the absolute best aromatic I have ever had. It always brings compliments from those around and has a very good tobacco taste along with the berry topping. This should apeal to everyone.

If you are looking for a tasty Aromatic that has a good tobacco taste, this one is much better than average. The taste of berry stays in the foreground always while the taste of a smooth Burley makes it a worthwhile smoke. Nice and dry compared to most Aromatic blends and has enough strength to be fairly satisfying as well.

In my quest for a subtle aromatic that still tastes like quality tobacco, I finally tried Berry Good.

Don't let the name fool you. This is a very lightly cased blend that has alot of body due to the ample amount of Burley (C&D just does not make wimpy tobaccos). While it does contain a little bit of black cavendish, it really hides in the background. In fact, the blend is so lightly cased, that it really just serves to soften the Burley and gently sweeten the smoke aroma. Whether it is "berry" or not, I really cannot tell.

I would classify this a full-bodied aromatic in the tradition of years past (Burleys and VAs with a light essence). It is not a modern heavily processed sweet tobacco. Instead, this is high quality toasted Burley with a touch of sweetness to take the edge off of Burley's typical bitterness. A clean and dry burn all the way down.

So if you are a veteran pipe smoker looking for "real" tobacco flavor but otherwise want a socially acceptable blend, try this. It ranks high on my list of good aromatics.

C & D Berry Good V 2.0 By: Christopher I must give a review on Berry Good because from what I am reading by people who buy this blend and then are let down because they are expecting a Cavendish based sweet aromatic with a nice strong and sweet berry taste and not taking onto consideration that C & D do not blend those type of tobaccos. So before you go running off and buying this pipe tobacco blend please understand a few things. This is NOT a sweet aromatic berry blend with the traditional Virginia, Burley and Cavendish based goopy PG infused sugar bomb. This is a Burley blend that is oily and nutty with a slight hint of berry topping and I mean slight that is ever so light allowing one to reflect on the earthy robust tobacco taste that is medium bodied and has a decent amount of nicotine in it. When you smoke this others will smell a light cigar like smell with a hint of sweet and berry but still a stronger side of tobacco so keep that in mind. A english style smoker would appreciate this tobacco blend more because in leans on the stronger side of things and would be recommended more for those kind of smokers who would like a different change in there rotation if they desire a touch fruity taste bit still being a natural tobacco taste. If you are a Burley smoker then you will absolutely enjoy this blend because this is a 100% Burley pipe tobacco blend with depth and weight to it delivering a nutty and velvety texture all the way through. To a new comer this blend can put a not in your throat and can bite very badly if smoked to hot leaving a bitter taste in your mouth if not smoked correctly so these are things to keep in mind if you wish to smoke Berry Good. The only reason this blend is classified as a aromatic is because it does have a topping but I can tell you it barley fits the profile. It would be wise to smoke this in a briar for better taste and control of the blend because a cob could smoke it alittle to hot unless your a veterian pipe smoker who prefers the cob regulating the heat for the best taste and no bite is key to this blend. I want newcomers to be able to enjoy this blend because it truly is a wonderful blend but I cannot stress this all enough. This is all my opinion based on what I have read from fellow pipe smokers who seem to be let very down because they do not understand C & D pipe tobacco blends and get there hopes up high for something else when you can get your hopes up high because this is something else when you understand what this is all about. Happy Smoking my friends hope this helps if you never smoked this before or just needed some understanding about this blend. God Bless You and God Bless America!!!

I really enjoy aromatics that don't rely on black cavendish. Berry Good allows the smoker to still enjoy the nutty taste of Burley while getting a dose of aromatic topping. I barely sense vanilla in this blend though it occasionally surfaces. The raspberry note is always noticeable whether in the front or background of the taste. The burley is easy on the tongue and nutty/toasty. Burns to a fine ash without goopy residue in the pipe. Excellent room-note.

A Jekyll and Hyde sort of blend. It IS a "for the right mood" blend.

I ordered 4 oz based upon the reviews on this site here is my take:

The bad first, Seemed very strong for an aromatic even a bit bitter. Not entirely unpleasant but I had expected something milder and "sweeter". More tongue bite than most blends I have experienced. For the first month of occasional use (about once a week) I was still disappointed overall. That is until...

The good, and it is really good. On a hot sunny late afternoon on the deck, relaxed and serene. Get a bottle of nice chilled white wine, smoke slowly and it becomes heavenly.

This is an unremarkable blend that would be ok if it were not intended to be a premium blend at a premium price. The quality of leaf is good but there are common OTC blends that are almost as good. Maybe I got a bad batch but there was no detectable casing in either the tin or the smoke. I don't like candied aromatics but there should be at least a hint of topping if it is labeled as an aromatic.

My wife has been a bit put out with me and my smelly pipes lately and the reviews here claimed this stuff has a great aroma so I bought a tin hoping to get back into her good graces. The room note wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special. This stuff is ok but it just isn't worthwhile.

In my search for an aromatic that is not over-processed and goopy, I decided to try Berry Good. Now don't let the name fool you. This is no wimpy tobacco (C&D does not make any of those), but a relatively full-bodied Burley blend with just a hint of Black Cavendish and a very light casing.

I really cannot tell if the casing is "berry" or not. It just has a bit of citrus essence that lightens the Burley and adds a gentle sweetness to the smoke. Nevertheless, it is real tobacco with a moderate nicotine punch. This is C&D all the way.

Try this if you are a fan of old-fashioned Burley blends, or are loooking for real tobacco flavor that has an aroma that is easy on those around you. This really fills a niche!
