Toasted black cavendish, bright cavendish and Virginia form the base with a subtle addition of cherries for an extra sweetness.

Mild Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The base of the blend is the grassy, lightly citrusy Virginia which also has a drop of honey. The black cavendish offers some sugar. The sweet and mildly tart black cherry topping sublimates the tobaccos to a fair extent as it is the main reason to buy this blend. The taste level is in the center of mild to medium. Hardly has any nicotine. Won’t bite or get harsh. Burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent flavor. May need a light dry time. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs a few relights if not dried. Has a pleasant, lightly lingering after taste. Can be an all day smoke.

McGahey - Black Cherry.

This is quite a simple tobacco to review:

It's heavily cased, has a very mild amount of nicotine, and quite a good room-note! Joking apart though, it's a good blend. Although the cherry is obviously the main ingredient, it also has quite a good hit of vanilla. I could swear it's been pouched wrong! In all fairness though, I'd assume that's coming from the heavy amount of Black Cavendish: this makes up for more than half of the blend. As I said at the start, the nicotine's mild, so newbies would love it. There isn't too much more to say, apart from smoke it in a cob: it ghosts like mad!

I guess that this would be a dream come true for a cherry aro' lover! I quite enjoy it myself!

Even though I quite enjoy it, I couldn't regularly pipe it:

Somewhat recommended.
