This blend is a contender for the most taste in a blend, and the best room note. However I have had some tubs of it that were better than others, as the almond flavoring used easily evaporates, and rapidly, if it isn't stored properly in an airtight container.

When fresh the almond is so overpowering that the cherry is a ghost, and if dried too much, you get nothing but cherry, which becomes more bitter the longer it dries.

This has some nicotine strengh to it which is surprising for these types of blend.

If you have ever smoked a rum prime time, times that taste by 100 and you have this fresh. The taste is overwhelming but in a good way. There are simply no other blends out there with this heavy of a casing on them.

Smokes great and everyone downwind will tackle you for a taste.

It has zero tobacco taste due to the strong topping and is perhaps not for everyone, but some days nothing else will do, and one needs a taste explosion on steroids. No lakeland can even boast half of this much casing.

This blend was the very first that I ever loaded into a pipe. I enjoyed it so much that I smoked it and nothing but for 3 years. You either love aromatics or you don't. This is by far the best Cherry aromatic I have ever had.

The blend is alreay rubbed, so there is no work excpet loading it into your pipe. This is a blend that you cannot seem to pack to tight. For me, I like to use a larger bowl, but for those that don't enjoy aromatics so much, a smaller bowl will get one a wonderful fix.

The tobacco burns wonderfully, and the aroma fills the room. The smoke will draw people in from outside even. Trust me.

The tobacco stays lit without a problem. If one needs to relight, don't worry. . . it'll be just as good.

This blend has been in my line up for years, and will continue to be a regular.
