From P&C's web site: Cherry Bon Bon starts its journey as as a one-sucker Burley known as Green River. The leaf is fire-cured and then subjected to a day-long steaming to soften the leaf and develop the flavor. The final touch is a deep, rich cherry essence that translates into a bite-free experience with a smooth flavor and great aroma.

Very Mild Mild to Medium Very Mild Pleasant

The earthy, nutty burley really isn’t noticeable as it, and the Virginia is processed in the cavendish style. I do get a little grass and honey from it as well as a very mild vanilla note from the black cavendish. The cherry topping is very mild, though it’s enough to sublimate the tobaccos to some extent, and it does weaken a little in the last third of the experience. No artificial taste in the cherry exists. There's a subtle chocolate note that lingers around, too. Has no nicotine to speak of. A coarse cut that’s a little moist, but needs no dry time. Burns at a moderate pace with a cool, clean smooth flavor with no bite. Leaves just a little moisture in the bowl, but no goop or dottle. Needs a few relights. Has a pleasant after taste and room note. A very mild all day light smoke.

Smells like chocolate, cherries, and vanilla from the bag, perhaps a bit of pecan way in the distance. I think the vanilla is naturally derived from the Cavendish.

Seems to stay a little dry yet smokes damply and a bit hot, leaving wetness at the bottom of the bowl from the sweetness of it (my drooling). Deep and rich flavors and a great fall to winter smoke. Rich and pleasant and aromatic with high compliments from all.

As it ages the flavors and strength mellow-out and is not as "juicy".

I find this a very tasty cherry chocolate vanilla combo.
