The Virginia is lightly grassy with a little citrus. The cavendish style Virginia has a little honey. The cherry topping has just a little depth, and does sublimate the tobacco. Burns a little on the fast side with some harshness and bite if you go beyond a moderate pace. Doesn't require too many relights, and has hardly any nicotine. Leaves moisture in the bowl, and the tobacco has a syrupy taste in the last quarter. The after taste is okay. Reminds me of Tinderbox's Anniversary Cherry, and I believe it is the same thing as I have to same problems with both blends, not to mention the similar taste.

I like steak but I don't eat it every day, so it is with this cherry blend. Tinder Box calls it Anniverary,generally latakia's and virginia's are my tobacco's of choice. This however is a quality aromatic that has a nice flavor but not overly sweet. It smokes well in any size pipe and burns to a nice gray ash with no wet heal to sour the smoke. In fact it smokes drier than some big name english blends do. You do get true tobacco taste at the 1/2 point of the bowl It settles in early and stay's consistent through the entire bowl. A true change of pace and something I always have around when called upon. If you get the chance give it a try, you will be surprised at the quality and mild flavor it produces. A very nice change of pace or all day puffer if you never bites and smokes clean. What else would you want from an aromatic? Enjoy it after a large dinner!

Medium Strong Full Pleasant

Not wanting to write a 'smarty pants' negative review, I have hesitated to write this for a long, long while. Cherry blends are a pleasure and a joy to smoke if you get the right one, and as I have now found out, pretty awful when you don't. This is both far too strong and far too artificial for my tastes. The aroma of this very, very damp tobacco surely could be nothing like the actual taste once flame is applied.

You think?

Burns hot, tastes like perfume, and hurts my tongue. I now believe in hell, as it is clearly packaged in this unexpectedly vile substance. I have never, ever thrown pipe tobacco away before, as no matter how disappointing, it can always be satisfactorily altered and salvaged by the addition of huge quantities of something else.

Not this.

Not great, just good. Not my favorite cherry blend. I just did not think it had enough cherry flavor. The tobacco was very wet. It does have tobacco flavor, which is quite good. And the cherry is not a chemical taste.

Upon opening my sample packet, it smelt not quite like cherries, more like if you extracted the sugar from cherries and the boiled the tobacco in it. Very sweet, and very, very mild. No prep work is required, but light tamping is necessary as this one tends to suffer pretty bad expansion in the bowl.

Its OK for a beginner, not for those looking for 'the next level' of strength or flavour, though. Room note is soft, with those sugary-cherry undertones i mentioned. Have to admit, im a bit dissapointed.

Happy piping

This is a pretty straightforward cavendish aromatic. It is a fairly fine ribbon cut with the occastional bit of flake which is dry in the pouch. It think it's mainly VA with a bit of burley as it is very mild. It packs and burns very well and can get a little hot. The aroma is very nice. The cherry flavoring isn't too heavy and allows some tobacco flavoring to come through. It gets a bit wet at mid-bowl, but not too bad for an aromatic. The cherry flavor isn't prominent at first, but gets a little more intense towards mid-bowl, then it becomes mainly the tast of the mild tobacco. A nice blend for a beginning smoker or when you want something to puff on which doesn't require much attention. I received this as a free sample and might buy a small amount if I see it around.

Update: Still a great cavendish with quality va tobacco shining through the flavoring. Like all cavendishes, it's a bit too mild in flavor and I sometimes end up puffing it too vigorously which leads to heat which leads to bite. If you like cavendish, though, I can't imagine any better than this. Far, far better than the cherry offerings from ALTADIS.

I picked up an ounce of this about three years ago when I was doing a survey of all of the cherry flavored tobaccos I could get my hands on, and it stood out then as the only one that seemed to be a good quality tobacco with a tasteful cherry topping, not gloopy sweet cough-syrupy stuff like 99% of the cherry blends out there. I probably smoked it once or twice, but as my tobacco endeavours progressed, however, I sort of forgot about this one until I was going through one of my many tupperware containers full of various and sundry tobaccos last night. As one of the other reviewers has mentioned, this seems to be the #1 Natural with cherry flavoring. I packed up a smallish half bent and fired up this evening and was quite favorably impressed...more so than on my original sampling years ago. There's a nice underlayment of mild Danish cavendish, and the cherry flavoring whisps in and out like a harmonic, in no way does it attempt to take center stage, rather, it nicely complements the entirety of the tobacco. No wetness was noticed at all, and the bowl progressed nicely through three or four interruptions with relights. It is not a particularly strong tobacco, but definately held off my nicotine jones until after dinner. This might not be an everyday smoke for me, but I'll definately be ordering some in bulk to jar away.

If you like, or would like to like cherry flavored tobaccos, give this a try.

Peter Stokkebye - Cherry (No.3).

I opened this with a yawn, yet another cherry blend. But on we go!

A well rubbed, medium brown, ribbon. The moisture of my pouch was good.

The cherries are an emphatic flavour, but supporting them is a sweetness that doesn't emanate from the cherries, alone. This is one of those cherry blends where the casing is false, and quite strong, so should you be adverse to an artificial tasting cherry blend, don't bother with this. The tobaccos join together to form a mellow flavour. It burns well, but bites hard.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: very sweet.

Peter Stokkebye Cherry? Just ANOTHER cherry aromatic. Somewhat recommended:

Two stars.

I picked up an ounce of this today along with the McClelland #27 and smoked two bowls, one in the car and one after the bowl of #27 and was pleasantly surprised at the mildness of the cherry topping and tobacco (thank heavens as cherry blends can incinerate ones tongue). Typical high quality Dutch Cavendish in a chunky ribbon with some flake like bits. The blend reminded me of a shredded grocery store paper bag, light shade of brown with no Black Cavendish. My B&M kept this at a perfect moisture content so it lit and burned without relights and kept the bite at a minimum. Not my favorite cherry blend but can certainly be smoked as a change of pace without too much buyers remorse IMHO.... Two stars.

I really like this tobacco. I have been looking for a cherry tobacco that doesn't scream cherry out loud. Not too strong and not too mild. This is the first cherry I have smoked that I can smoke bowl after bowl. I like John Middleton cherry also - but I think i like this one better. It has a subtle flavor. Easy to light and keep lit. Easy on the pocket book too. I'm glad I tried it.

Was excited to try my first ever Cherry....hmmmmm. This was disappointing. I am by no means a pipe tobacco veteran and my knowledge of various blends is limited to just four as of now, but this was underwhelming. It honestly reminded me of smoking a cheap cigar. The taste was bland and I found the aftertaste akin to licking the ashtray. I will try mixing it with something else, as I just can find much pleasure in this, and isn't that why we partake in the first place, the pleasure of it?

This blend is simply to light for me. Other than at the light, not much cherry flavor. There was no bad taste anywhere here (thus two starts; not one), so if you like very light blends, you may enjoy this. My palate just isn't sensitive enough. I envy those that can enjoy this, as many more aromatics are available to you.

This is a very nice tobacco, with a subtle cherry taste which lasts through out the smoke. Burns well, stays lit and does not bite. Great with a cup of joe in the morning. Well done Stokkebye.

I’m a fairly new pipe smoker (at it a little more than a month now, I reckon) and I’ve already decided I like aromatics a lot. I suppose that’s not terribly surprising since it seems like many new pipe smokers tend to like aromatics. This Stokkebye cherry was one of the first aromatics I purchased – picked up 2oz from the local bottle shop/cigar shop, along with another 2oz each of Stokkebye Nougat and Vanilla Crème. I had just gotten my first pipe, a Missouri Meerschaum Patriot, earlier that day (happened to be a Friday) and I wanted to get several different blends to try over the weekend while I was waiting for a for my order to arrive with other well-reviewed blends.

I got home that night, took out the Stokkebye cherry, opened the bag, and gave it a whiff. Wow. Terrible! It’s like it was soaked in some sort of low-end cherry cough syrup. Absolutely offensive odor from the bag. The Nougat and Vanilla Crème were more pleasant from the bag. I tried the cherry for the first timer later in the evening and was unable to smoke an entire bowl. The ribbons were fairly damp, so I let them air dry a bit before lighting, but it still refused to stay lit. Tamp, tamp, relight, tamp, relight… it was an exercise in futility. The taste was awful (very sickly-sweet) and the tongue bite was pretty much non-stop. If the flavor would have been the least bit enjoyable I may have soldiered on, but since everything about this Stokkebye cherry was offensive to all of the senses I decided to dump out the pipe and carry on with my life.

This is simply a terrible tobacco. I smells terrible before it’s lit, it smells terrible and has an awful flavor when it’s burning, and it’s too difficult to keep lit. I would never recommend this stuff to anyone, most certainly a new pipe smoker (lest they think all aromatics are this terrible). Thank goodness for the likes of RLP-6 and Monster Mix.

This blend is unpretentious and only aspires to be a basic staple. I am reminded of my very first experience smoking a pipe 25 years ago. It was a warm April night and my dad showed me his pipes and tobacco jar. I can still see the glass jar with the wooden lid. When I opened the jar there was a smell of cherry tobacco. The tobacco was probably something from the grocery store, however. He showed me, at age 13, how to pack and told me about puffing not inhaling. We were watching TV and the aroma soon filled the little room. Although he didn't stick with the pipe and I didn't pick the pipe back up for another 5 years, most of my pipe tobacco experience is based on that episode.

Anyway, the pouch aroma is what you would expect. The leaf seems a bit brighter in color than your typical Cherry Cavendish Drug Store blend. The packing is nice and it takes a match very well. If you've read the above paragraph, that is the only way my dad would attempt to light a pipe. The first thing to notice is the lack of tongue-bite. The cherry flavor is nice, but not over-powering. There is some real tobacco taste here, as well. I am not saying that this is the end-all and be-all of cherry tobaccos, but it is pretty good for the price. The flavor stays the same all the way down to the last puff. And, there is no metallic after-taste when you are finished. The Nicotine level is pretty low. The ash is, surprisingly, fine and only a little discolored. The pipe is left dry and clean. This is very unlike those typical cherry blends that peiple rightly hate. I have given it 3 stars for the way it accomplishes what it is trying to accomplish. I have had many other higher-class aromatics behave a lot worse. The aroma is one that the ladies will appreciate without you having to give too much up in taste. If you ever find yourself wanting to re-live some smoke from the past, and a lot of us got started with Cherry something, try this blend. Your tongue will not pay the price for your trip down memory lane. And, if you know a younger person that may be interested in trying the sacred weed, keep a half pound of this in a glass jar with a wooden lid. Someone may be writing about you 25 years or more from now!
