|Rather than rate this blend against all aromatics blends, I'll just give an opinion upon how it rates among the cherry/rashberry etc. blends.
Firstly, it was just as advertised. Cherry. A pleasantly tasty aromatic cherry blend that burned cooly and produced no tongue burn or bite, but I did smoke it slowly and towards the bottom of the bowl required severaly re-lites. There was a small amount wet goop in the bottom that I have come to expect with cherry blends and am letting some of this dry out a bit to see if it improves the burning characteristics in the lower 1/3 of the bowl without affecting the overall flavor.
Overall I would give this blend a high rating and if you're fond of cherry blends, this one is definitely worth a trial run.
|This is another favorite of mine that I really like to smoke in mixed company or out in public. This is another that I recommend to beginners as long as there not a fast smoker (had a few friends complain of bite that went away when they slowed down). I personally enjoy the flavor and like that others enjoy the Aroma. (a definite Lady magnet!!)
Had a few hard core pipe snobs say it was like candy, but to each his own I say. As long as you enjoy it, who cares. (maybe they should smoke more of this around the Ladies to get a little companionship and perhaps help them to lighten up eh?)
I only smoke this in one of my bigger Bjarne's and Stanwell's, it seamed to get a little too wet in one of my Peterson's. But anyhoo..........to me it truly smokes as it smells, so if you like cherries, this is for you!
