I have smoked two other cherry blends so far. One being McClintock black cherry and Mac Barons cherry Ambrosia. Stanwell cherry is the best one that I have smoked so far. Not much to the blend, just good cherry flavors. The tin note is great and the room note is stellar. Smoke this one in public and the women will flock to you. In the pipe it is smooth with no tongue bite. The taste is delightful cherrys. Not a chemical taste but a nice light cherry flavor. This one is a keeper.

Age When Smoked: new right out of the tin

Upon opening the pouch, I am met with a pleasantly sweet Aroma which is a mixture of the cherry flavoring and the cavendish. The cut is a rough ribbon, the black cavendish is the dominant leaf, with some golden strands of Virginia mixed in. The moisture content is just right for packing and lighting. Two matches should do the trick. The cherry flavor is very creamy and immediately noticable without being overpowering. The Virginia adds just the right amount of smokiness to the taste. This pleasant taste remains present throughout the smoke, and the tobacco burns down to a fine grey ash, leaving no dottle. The room note is a crowd pleaser, a pleasant, sweet aroma of cherry. I smoked this while out on a windy day, which did cause the bowl to go hot on me, resulting in a bit of "tobacco Juice". But this had more to do with the conditions than with the tobacco itself. Recommendation: This is a very nice aromatic for everyday use. The cherry flavoring is pleasing and stays that way throughout the smoke (which is not typical of many other cherry flavored blends). If you are not an aromatic fan, do not smoke this, as you will not like it. If you enjoy aromatics, then this is definitely one to add to your rotation. It is not a complex smoke, so it has nothing to challenge the connoisseur's palate. But it does offer a solid, tasty smoke to both novice and expert alike.

Note: Both Stanwell and MacBaren have reduced the pouch content to 40g rather than the usual 50g, selling, of course, for the same price as the 50g. This is rather unfortunate, and I felt a bit duped when I noticed this fact!
