Either I’ve changed or Middleton improved their cherry blend. It’s better than when I smoked it many years back. The cherry flavor is not strong and you can taste the burley some, more so at the finish when weak cherry flashes off a little. The cavendish in both have a very light honey, grass note. The cherry taste in the Match is a little more obvious, and the nutty burley is a shade less noticeable. The cherry does not burn off at the finish as it does in the original. The original has the same fault it has always had, being bitey when puffed beyond a sipping pace. That is only true of the Match if you go at it like a steam engine trying to outrace Superman. Both have almost no nicotine. The Match burns slightly faster than a moderate pace, fairly cool, and is a smoother smoke with a more pleasant after taste than the original. Hardly leaves any moisture in the bowl, and needs very few relights. An all day smoke. I gave the original one star. This gets two and a half.
