ON THE BASIS OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BY NAT SHERMAN STORE IN NEW YORK CITY: Spring Street's former name was "Spring Street Cherry". The bourbon barrels give it a cherry aromatic but it has no cherry in it. (I believe this information can be useful in completing the tobacco profile. If the Direction deems it appropriate, it may be included in the product card).
Now the review: 370 Spring Street (Cherry) is pure cavendish, namely Straight Golden Cavendish. That said, what a really gross taste! Chemical taste. Horrible! I want to clarify that the cut is perfect, the moisture is perfect, the room note is pleasant, the scent is good (a strong cherry aroma), the nicotine content is ok (light) and it burns very well. But the taste and the after taste, poor us! This tobacco is clearly full of chemical additives and the flavoring is clearly artificial and not natural. In contrast to what is claimed by the brand, there is a clear chemical cherry flavoring. No bourbon at all (I don’t perceive it). The taste: nasty, cloy, disgusting, chemical. The aftertaste: yucky, icky. The taste after smoking; really bad. Simply unsmokable. Junk tobacco! Nat Sherman can do much better. My advice is not to smoke it straight, but to use it as a seasoning tobacco (in your own mixtures, but only a little bit). For all these reasons, in my personal rating system (from 1 to 10) my score is 4 and only a star.
Age When Smoked: Fresh
Purchased From: NAT SHERMAN INTERNATIONAL, Midtown East, 12 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017
I was very inexperienced when I bought this. The baggy note (when bought at the Nat Sherman's store across from Grand Central, the tobacco is placed in a thick, zip lock baggy) was light and, well, cherry-fruity. When smoked, I found it pleasant, except for the cherries. It burned hot and poisoned my MM. I won't belabor this review with negatives. Nat Sherman's sold me fine tobacco. Their staff was very professional, attentive, and humble. Cherry flavored simply wasn't for me. I tossed it and learned to smoke a pipe on a Nat Serman pure Virginia mix, which was wonderful, light, and tasted natural.
This was the first tobacco I bought and like the other review, its not very good. However, I have been blending it with a bunch of other tobacco's and I love the blends. I'll finally be finished with it soon and have to say I'll miss the blends. Might end up buying more just for blending.
Just picked up a pipe again and read my review. Have not blended and have not bought it again. Like stated it was my first tobacco so I was an inexperienced reviewer. Just dont want to mislead anyone with my 2 stars so I'm changing it to one.
