I am not what you would call a tobacco snob. I smoke everything from "drug store blends" to expensive English blends, and everything in between. I usually will find enjoyment in almost any tobacco I smoke, with few exceptions. No exceptions with this tobacco. This is a good tobacco. Not great, but good. Burns well, with flavor, and a nice aroma. But, let's talk about the flavor a little. The name had the word "Cherry" in it. When I bought this at my local supermarket, I was expecting a taste of cherry. There was none. Instead, I received a nice all around tobacco flavor. Nutty Burley, sweet Virgina and, and a little Cavendish thrown in. All in all, a faily complicated blend for a "drug store" tobacco. But, no Cherry! Ok, maybe, just maybe there was the slightest hint of cherry, or at least a note of added casing, but not much. If you want a smoke, that people will like to have about, and you like tobacco flavor, this might be the blend for you, bit don't expect cherry. Right now, though, I'm going to have a Cherry Life Saver.

It's amazing of how many "drug store" brands there were when I was a kid. A couple of my buddys and I probably tried them all at one time or another. This blend made the list.

Although one of the best cherry blends available, after a couple bowls, I was pretty well done for awhile.

This blend starts off sweet upon lightup but does taper down a bit. The cherry stays in the background.

Not bad if you like cherry.

I've never been crazy about Swisher Sweets or Cherry Blends.
