|This aromatic was a total disappointment. There wasn't any cherry before or after lighting.
Strangely, the tobacco in the bag smelled sweet but not like cherry. I am not kidding when I say the smell reminded me of play-dough. The tobacco was not dry but it certainly was not "wet" like some aromatics. Upon lighting, it burned well but once again, it strangely was missing any cherry flavor. Slight sweetness but ultimately bland. I went through about an ounce and after each bowl asked myself why I was smoking this blend because it was not satisfying at all. Perhaps it was a bad batch. I did purchase it at Peretti's and it says "cherry cavendish" on the bag so this one is a mystery.
I usually smoke English blends but like to try aromatics every now and then as a change of pace. And I have found other Peretti aros very satisfying so this was a strange, smoky experience.
