Mild to Medium Medium Medium Pleasant

This is one of the very few aromatic blends that I like. It smokes cool and has a pleasant, light cherry liquor flavoring: nothing overwhelming at all, like many cherry blends are. It is good to go right out of the jar/baggie or can take a bit of drying if one prefers. It burns well, without a lot of fuss, down to a fine gray ash and it not wet or goopy at all. The room note is much like the tin note (a nice cherry-ish smell) that I can pick up on, which is unusual for me, and lingers a bit. But since it is a pleasant note that is not a negative at all. If you are looking for a pleasant aromatic, one that might remind you of old timers from your fond memories, a non-overwhelming cherry, or a blend that the folks you are around will appreciate, you'll enjoy, and won't bite, I recommend giving this blend a try.

The aroma from the pouch is a little stronger than the taste of the tobacco. There's a light vanilla note or two playfully merging with the rich cherry topping, which sublimate the tobaccos, which do offer a little grass and brown sugar. Has almost no nicotine. No bite, no harsh spots. Burns slightly less than moderately, cool and clean, with a very smooth, consistent flavor. Needs few relights, and will burn to ash. Has a very pleasant after taste and your friends will enjoy the smell. A dry smoking mild to medium sweet mixture that doesn't overwhelm your senses as an all day smoke.

Most cherry related blends have 2 things in common. 1. The pouch aroma does not transfer well to a flavorful smoke. 2. They typically bite...and some pretty badly. Z50 Black Cordial is exceptional on both fronts.  It lights up easily and burns well.  The cordial topping is present not only in the pouch, but provides a pleasurable smoke from beginning to end.  Nicely balanced, zero bite, sweet and very flavorful.  I will be getting more of this.  Highly recommended for you aromatic lovers.

Similar Blends: Lane Black Raspberry. While Z50 is cherry cordial, I find it very flavorful and a bit fruity, like Lane Black Raspberry. Both are amazing in a sweet, flavorful aromatic..

A lovely cherry-chocolate blend with some actual tobacco flavor too. For an aromatic it burnt easily straight from the tin. The flavor lasted throughout the bowl. Very similar to Cult's Blood Red Moon but has a milder tobacco flavor.

There are only 3 cherry blends that I have ever enjoyed in my 6 years as a pipe smoker. This is one of them. I wanted to smoke this blend 3 different times in 3 different pipes before reviewing. Each smoke was better than the last. During the first bowl, I sensed more hints of vanilla and the cherry gradually stepped in to play. The next two bowls, the cherry stood out more and vaguely reminded me of a cherry Jolly Rancher. This blend burns extremely well and smokes cool, which is surprising for an aromatic. It does not bite and I would say it is a very well balanced blend. If you are an aromatic smoker and you enjoy cherry, you'll love this blend.

Tastey aromatic. Smells like dark cherries in bag, smokes sweet with taste or mild cherry. Very pleasant room note. Can smoke hot and possibly bite if you're not careful. Tastey smoke! No dottle in my pipe.

I cannot say enough about this tobacco, this one has it all! Wonderful pouch note, a pleasant smoke, with a great aftertaste. It packs well, and although it was a little difficult to get lit, once lit it required no re-lites and just needed to be tamped down a couple of times. A pleasant break from the syrupy cherry blends that dominated the market. No matter how hard I push it, NO BITE. If I could only smoke one tobacco, this would be it!

Very enjoyable tobacco, my favorite Aromatic actually. Tastes delicious, like berries, and smells the same. A perfect after-dinner smoke. My family loves it when i smoke this tobacco. Not much nicotine though, so i often end up going for a cigarette a few minutes after i'm done. highly recommended

Amazing that this tobacco has all the nice things that you would like in an aromatic blend...nice smell from the bag (vanilla and cherry) but light and not heavy. The 4 oz bag that I had was not overly sticky (think 1Q) and burned to a nice fine ash with little resin left over in the pipe. Slightly sweet and pleasing room note. Note, no bite from this tobacco if smoked slow and had a mild pleasing taste. This is an easy all day smoke. Currently my favorite.

Update, I bought 32 ounces bulk Sutliff Black Cordial from Pipes and Cigars and was surprised at how sticky it was. Not the same stuff that I got from the tobacconist shop. Anyway, I tried to dry some in the oven a 100 F on a cookie tray but it remained sticky. Hard to keep lit but it did taste the same. Makes me wonder if the smaller bag I got was a different manufacturer, Lane maybe?
