Virginia, stoved burley, dark fired Kentucky, and Turkish tobacco make for a “grown up” cherry blend with wood, Turkish sour notes, and real Virginia sweetness. The top note is used in the classical sense as “a bit of fragrance” to complete the natural ‘cherries and cherry wood’ flavor profile.

Mild to Medium Medium Mild to Medium Very Pleasant

The nutty, woody, earthy, floral, barbecue sweet and sour, smokey, herbal, spicy dark fired Kentucky is the lead component. The earthy, spicy, woody, very sour, smoky, floral, herbal Turkish takes the second slot by a small margin. The Turkish always competes with the tangy ripe, fermented dark fruity, earthy, woody, sugary red Virginia, though the Virginia occasionally surpasses it. The nutty, woody, sugary, earthy stoved burley has a fruity note as an important condiment. The rich tartly sweet cherry topping sublimates the tobaccos quite a bit, but not enough to trivialize their intrinsic qualities. All the aspects of this well melded blend work synergistically to create an aromatic with some complexity. The strength and taste levels fall a couple of steps short of the medium mark. The nic-hit is in the center of mild to medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, and has no rough edges. This easily broken apart crumble kake is a tad moist, but needs no dry time. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate with a deep, mostly consistent, very sweet and mildly savory with a touch of sour flavor that translates to lightly lingering after taste. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and requires a couple more than an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke for the experienced aro smoker, and is certainly repeatable in any case. Three and a half stars out of four.

Medium Mild Medium Pleasant

A subdued taste of tart dark cherries without the cloying sweetness of most cherry aros.. The dark fired Kentucky is clearly predominant. A satisfying cool slow smoke with a very pleasant but relatively short aftertaste. Definitely worth smoking if you can get it.
