|I first tried this blend back when I was totally dedicated to the BCs and full aromatics. That was in the early 1990s. Even then, I dropped this blend after a single pouch.
I have already elaborated on how Danske Club, after having been a supplier of quality blends, was turned into a bit of a joke by the new owners; I don't think I have to go through that again (and I'd hate to, the story regularly makes me want to upchuck). Let me merely say that the "Cherry Mild!" was one of the new blends introduced after the new owners took over and killed off most of the previous offerings.
Back then, the sweetness appealed to me. I recently tried another few pipes after picking up a sample from my trusted tobacconist (who, to be fair, could not believe I would sample this blend!). The good memories seem to be gone; the bad bits reinforced: I guess having smoked higher-quality blends for the past 15 years gives me a little bias.
Anyway, while the pouch aroma is heavily cherrily fruity, the blend tends to burn hot (like most "cheap" aromatics), and the taste is not so much cherry as cocoa, leaving me to conclude that the base tobacco is Burley. Which, as such, is not necessarily bad. Unfortunately, this blend is so heavily overcased that after about 1/3rd of a pipeful, the original fruit notes begin to be overwhelmed by tar. and even for me as a filter smoker, there is quite a lot of condensation even if smoked slowly.
Sorry, folks. If you absolutely love cherry, try it; it might be worth the attempt. Otherwise, I would recommend to strongly avoid.
