The nutty, earthy woody burley takes a small lead over the grassy, citrusy Virginia. The sugary black cavendish is a secondary star. The tart black cherry topping lacks some depth, though it does sublimate the tobaccos quite a bit. It also has a distracting sour note, and the overall effect lightly diminishes in the last quarter of the experience. The strength is just short of the center of mild to medium, while the taste is in the that center. Has a small nic-hit. Won’t bite or get harsh. The tobacco needs a little dry time. Burns fairly cool and wet at a slightly slow pace with a mostly consistent flavor that translates to the short lived after taste. Leaves some moisture in the bowl, and requires some relights. Has a pleasant room note. An all day smoke.

Newminster - No. 3B Black Cherry.

The aroma from the pouch isn't half as strong as a lot of cherry aromatic blends. The black Cavendish accounts for a lot less of the blends construction in comparison to the lighter leaves. Even though it's from a bulk pouch, it still needs drying time, not lots, but it's a touch damp.

The cherry addition seems to work strange, it's quite strong at first but soon calms down: any cherry causticity soon dissipates. The Burley gives most of the tobacco flavour, the virginia second to that, but the black Cavendish adds very little. The temperature feels cool, and it only bites me when stressed. The flavour of the smoke's quite nice, but it looses some points because of the burns speed: too quick.

The nicotine's mild to medium, and the room-note's quite pleasant.

This is an ok smoke, but to be honest it bores me too much to score any higher than two stars.

Somewhat recommended.
