A light Cavendish blend (in a straight Cavendish cut) consisting of quality mild flue-cured Virginia tobaccos, which are carefully developed through a gentle Cavendish process. The very mild taste comes from the ripe cherries in combination with the light sweetness of the Cavendish. No. 3 Very Cherry is very enjoyable on its own.

Notes: Since the Peter Stokkebye tobaccos are now being produced and distributed by a new company, the Villiger have spent much time and effort bringing back the most popular blends from their line. Now produced by MacBaren, these aptly named Newminster blends have passed all the initial tests for quality, taste, and character. Newminster pipe tobacco is a line that you will enjoy!

If you think all cherry aromatics are the same, try Newminster Very Cherry. This is a lightly cased cherry Virginia that really satisfies the sweet tooth. They say it's blended by MacBaren, but the Virginia is what stands our here. The cherry serves as a mild enhancement to the natural red Virginia sweetness. Honestly, it's the best of both worlds. Mild good instead of mild murky. Sweet, but TOBACCO sweet.

Cherry it certainly is, enduring in my rotation it certainly is not. I received this a few times as a sample and I just can't bring myself to buy it (in any quantity). I do find myself craving a well put together cherry from time to time, but this one just doesn't cut it for me. Svendborg Kirsberry and Capt. Black Red Sky are still the tops in my books as far as cherry blends are concerned, Newminister is just too akin to all the other sub par bulk cherries.

I'm still exploring Aro's and this one was a great discovery. Really nice natural cherry flavour that has been put on with a light hand. No detectable PG and a very nice base virginia. I got this as a free sample (Thanks smokingpipes!) and have since ordered 4oz more. Good stuff and those around you will love it.
