McGahey's - Holt Black Cherry.
If you like cherry aromatics, I'm sure you'll find this pleasing.
From both the appearance, and the flavour, I'd be inclined to think there's more to this than just Virginia, and Black Cavendish (as per the current description). I'd say as well as a large quantity of Virginia, and a tiny amount of Black Cavendish, that there's also some Burley and Brown Cavendish in the mix.
The cherry flavouring seems much stronger in the pouch-note, than it does in the smoke; the pouch suggests an 8/10 strength, yet the smoke's much closer to 5. And sadly, even though it's mild, it still bites.
The nicotine's just below medium, not loads below, but nevertheless, mild to medium.
As cherry blends are common, there's not many surprises to be had from one. I think, this is about a middle of the road cherry aromatic.
