Joining a number of P&C classics like Butternut Burley and Trout Stream comes our latest and greatest aromatic, Scotty's Bass Pond. We started with a toasted black cavendish made of premium quality Green River burley. This tobacco is then steamed and infused with rich caramel and vanilla notes along with cherry and dark fruit. The result is a bite-free, exceptionally slow-smoking black cavendish with plenty of smooth flavor, and an incredible room note that everyone will love.

Best in Series - At first glance, this appears to be a run-of-the-mill black cavendish. But oh it is so much more! When I opened the bag, I was met with a wonderful caramel/vanilla scent. Once lit, I found the same caramel/vanilla taste with a dash of fruit - all the way to the bottom of the bowl. As I smoked it the taste pleasantly changed, making it even more enjoyable. The room note was no disappointment either. No nasty aftertaste. Russ hit this one out of the park!

Scotty’s Bass Pond, Russ Ouellette

Description: Joining a number of P&C classics like Butternut Burley and Trout Stream comes our latest and greatest aromatic, Scotty's Bass Pond. We started with a toasted black cavendish made of premium quality Green River burley. This tobacco is then steamed and infused with rich caramel and vanilla notes along with cherry and dark fruit.

Discussion:

An all BC blend topped with vanilla and caramel. I get the slightest hint of cherries and raspberries on top of the caramel base note. No chemical bite, no goop, tastes like it smells. Consistent flavor down the bowl.

I think I prefer Trout Stream to this one. That has a bit more umph to the experience, a better depth of flavors. But, I also think this one does rather nicely with the faint cherry and raspberry. I like the concept of a cherry topping. But I rarely, if ever, like the execution of the same. In this one, it works. I think it would be more attractive with a chocolate base, but that’s just being picky.

A completely unfussy, virtually zero nicotine, and easy to smoke American aromatic. This one doesn’t even pretend to be actual tobacco, it’s just a topping delivery system. Which, I think would have irritated me a lot more before I got a little bit further into this style of aromatic. In fact I know it would have. But I don’t care very much anymore. These aren’t trying to compete with the profiles of your more… natural blends. They’re trying to be a sweet and flavorful trip into a completely different realm.

I don’t think I’ll reach for this one very often, but if you are in the market for an all cavendish blend with this profile, you could do a lot worse.

Rating: Good.

Ok, let me first start off by saying this blend technically delivers, so take my review into consideration. My reviews are more of a personal database to keep track of my thoughts on blends I've tried so I can check back later and see what I thought.

On to the review! Bass Pond smells great, almost tropical, and it tastes exactly like it smells. So what's my gripe with it? It's just really boring. It's the same exact one flavor over and over again. It was one of the first blends I got bored of before I even got halfway through the bowl.

I would describe the pouch note as cherry-vanilla and amazing.

For me this tobacco tastes like a Cherry Dreamsicle. The caramel and vanilla take the edge off of the cherry and boy is it good! Without a doubt this is my favorite cherry flavored tobacco.

Pressure steamed until black all the while being infused with flavor as is the American Cavendish method. This tobacco is a little sticky, as American Cavendishes usually are, but smokes very well. I didn't have to do any re-lights nor did I have any pipe gurgle, indicating the moisture is spot on.

If you're in the mood for a dessert tobacco with cherry flavor, this is a good one to try.
