McLintock Wild Cherry. This doesn't smell like your usual Cherry aromatic, it has a definite aroma of Cherries prominently but there is also a slightly peculiar perfume note in the background. It's of a good moistness but I should add that mine's a 5 gram sample in a baggie so I can't really comment on what the quantity of water from a sealed pouch is like. The moment I light mine up I realize I left my drink in the kitchen so pop to grab it and when I re-enter the room where I'm smoking I am amazed by the room note. It smells so Cherry like it is unbelievable! To be honest the room note has more Cherry to it than the taste, the Cherry isn't as certain in the taste as say Sam G' Black Cherry, a lot milder. Pleasantly though, the perfume note I found in the aroma is non-existent in the flavour! The Nicotine isn't too strong either, a big inhalation of smoke is needed with this one! Tongue bite? Sadly this can issue a little bite when drawn harshly, not a whopper but a bite nonetheless. All the way through a bowl of Wild Cherry it only really needs the odd tamp to maintain the burn, it doesn't keep becoming un-lit. A not so good feature of the burn is the temperature, it does seem a bit too hot for my pallet. The best attribute this blend has is definitely the room note, very Cherry LOL ! But to be honest my consensus for the tobacco as a whole is quite mundane, just another Cherry aromatic. Two stars.

Yet another in the myriad of cherry flavoured tobaccos on the market.

Nice aroma in the packet some of which creeps through in the smoke. Burns aright, light touch on loading. Certainly promising.

It's pretty similar to the dreadful Borkum Riff cherry without the bite. Smell and texture reminds me of the insipid Black Cherry from Gawith's.

Very pleasant when lighting and for about 10 minutes or so really quite good. The taste/flavour doesn't hang around much after that and it's just about tasteless halfway down the bowl.

There seems to be no detectable room note.

Not as tasty or long lasting like McLintock's Orange.

It's not the best, and not the worst either.

Mild Medium to Strong Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

The first pouch of pipe tobacco I ever owned was McLintlock's Wild Cherry, given to me by a strange but wonderful Czech girl that I haven't seen in years. All wistful memories of foreign ladies aside, I hate cherry blends. I hate Borkum Riff Cherry Liqueur. I hate MacBaren's Cherry Ambrosia. I hate cherry lollipops, cherry ice cream, and cherry bubblegum. If I'm ever in prison for any length of time, I want to get a full sleeve tattoo that says "I hate cherries" in fierce looking letters. In the pouch, MWC looks and smells like a low-quality, cut flake candy-blend. Smoked, it tastes a lot like cherries and a little like tobacco. Honestly, I might try it again for its sentimental value, but I'd be more likely to sprinkle a few flakes in a joint than I would be to contaminate even my worst pipe with the hated cherry flavour. Better than the few other cherry blends I've tried, but not much. Sorry, Jana.
