Drew Estate - Heirloom Cherry
We could've called it Grandmas Cherry Pie or something clever, but well let the tobacco do the talking on this one. Mild, Aromatic with a wonderful cherry flavor that lasts throughout your bowl. Never Bites.

Purchased this to once again try a cherry blend. My heart told me that I have been disappointed in the past with cherry blends--Not so with this one. As I opened the tin I was greeted by a cherry/bread like aroma that was delicious to the nose. As I looked at the tobacco I got an even more pleasant surprise. The moisture content was just right and the tobacco was not all goopy from the casings. That really caught me off guard as I suspected I would open the tin to find a goopy over cased mess--I did not. I loaded several style pipes with this blend and as I smoked it I noted that the cherry and bread like notes were in the background--not in the fore front over powering the tobacco. It burns nice, tastes nice and for a cherry blend really left me impressed as my original thoughts were that I was actually going to hate this stuff as in the past other cherry blends I have tried have left my throat burning. This was a tobacco that I can honestly say really caught me off guard and has left me rethinking about being so quick to jump to conclusions before giving things a chance. The room note is nice and over all I can say I would recommend this to those who like cherry. Its a more subtle blend with those cherry notes remaining in the background as it is smoked. Also I had no goopy mess in my pipes when done. I went from telling myself that I would end up giving the tin away after trying a few bowls to actually wanting to try their other offerings and I plan on buying another tin of this soon.
Pipe Used: small, medium, large bowl briars
