A modern aromatic blend of black cavendish with bright Virginia tobaccos grown in Brazil, Africa and Thailand in addition to mellow burley grades from the U.S.A. A light cherry aroma completes this cool, satisfying and fragrant tobacco.
The Virginias are lightly earthy and grassy with a little citrus and fruit. The nutty burleys have a little earth, toast, and hardly any sweetness as a supporting player. The unsweetened black cavendish adds some brown sugar in the background. The cherry topping has a little richness, and while it does tone down the tobaccos a little, it allows them to have their say. The strength is mild, while the taste is a couple of slots past that threshold. The nic-hit is fairly mild. Won’t bite or get harsh. May need a light dry time. Burns at a reasonable pace, cool and clean with a very smoothly sweet consistent flavor. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl. Requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasant after taste and room note. An easy going all day smoke.
The smell from this isn't your 'stereotypical' cherry aro' one, normally I find cherry blends smell really sickly and overly sweet but this gives off a true cherry smell that lacks that strong false sweetness. The tobacco pieces are smaller and more delicate than usual, the majority being less than 1/4 of a CM long. The moistness is a decent amount enabling smoking to commence right away with only a short touch of the flame.
Sadly I notice a problem straight away, because the tobacco pieces are so small in size the smoke that's given off is far too warm! Whilst I mention negatives I may as well get bite out the way, it issues a hefty nip whether it's sipped or sucked! To be fair on the blend aside from those issues the flavour is unique for a cherry blend, like the smell there's no horrible candy-esc sweetness but a true cherry taste that stays the same quantity throughout. Nicotine is at a stronger amount, if you can take an aro' first thing in the morning then this may suit you for replenishing your nicotine stores! The room note has the same true cherry quality I have found all along, it's also not too full in the room so it's not that offensive.
If I was rating this for only the added flavour quality it would unequivocally score four stars but for the whole experience it can only have two stars.
This is a suberb tobacco, I have been smoking it for years so I thought I had better add a review. The tobacco is extremely well flavoured with a great room note. Some time ago, I was walking on the beach where I live and some guy commented on the smell of the tobacco that I was smoking. He had a couple of kids with him so I apologised, thinking that I had upset him. It turned out that he was a professional tabacconist, running a shop just inland from here, so the wild Cherry has a great beach note. Just the other day, my post man "Zac" could not get a delivery through my letter box (funnily, it was from E A Carey) and he commented on the tobacco I was smoking and said how pleasant it was, so a complement from a french postman is a comlement indeed. I have been married twice in the past and am currently single, but being pursued, before I agree to allow the lady to shack up with me, she will have to pass my tobacco rating.
