The base of the blend is the citrusy, grassy Virginia. The toasted black cavendish provides a little sugar. The sweet and lightly tart, deep black cherry topping leaves a small amount of tobacco to observe. The strength is mild. The taste level is in the center of mild to medium. The nicotine is mostly on permanent vacation. Won’t bite or get harsh even when pushed. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent flavor all the way to the end. Leaves some moisture in the bowl as it burns a little wet. Needs some relights. Has a short lived pleasant after taste. Can be an all day smoke.
I do occasionally like a aromatic blend, and do enjoy trying to find one that I can truly say that I love. Unfortunately for this blend this is not it. The cherry tastes like cough syrup, and coincidentally it leaves a cough syrupy glob of gunk in the bottom of your pipe. It does smoke fairly cool and your wife will love it. Its just a shame that it falls very short on smoking pleasure.
It's not that I dislike all aromatics; I just don't care for this one.
The cherry flavor is too artificial. It reminds me of cough medicine with more sweetner.
I will likely try some other cherry blends, like the previous distinguished reviewer. The reviews on this site for Pipeworks and Wilke's cherry cavendish sound promising....
Although a raspberry, not a cherry blend, I much prefer Decadent Chocolate Raspberry by Affordable Pipes mostly because the tobacco seems to be better quality and the topping is applied with a more restrained hand. That blend is a quality fruit-based aromatic that I can recommend without hesitation. But I am much less enthusiastic about this Lane blend
This tobacco closely matches the descriptions of what I've seen labeled "Lane's Very Cherry," so I'm assuming this is the right one to review.
Very Cherry's pouch aroma is very sweet and artificial cherry- like. It's actually kind of nice. The tobacco that I received was just perfect: not goopy in the slightest bit and not too dry. There was no bright red cherry coloring that I've heard about in some cherry blends.
The tobacco burns nicely without gooping up the pipe. There's a little moisture, but it's what you would expect from this type of tobacco. The smoking flavor is OK, but it's definitely artificial cherry. I wouldn't consider it offensive or "cough syrup" cherry, but it's artificial nonetheless.
Since this is my first cherry blend, I'm not sure how this compares with other cherry blends. Will I buy more of this tobacco? I'm not sure. I plan to try several different cherry blends. I know that I'll at least enjoy the rest of my 2 oz. baggy of this tobacco.
If you're looking for a cherry blend, you might want to try this.
I'm not a big cherry fan but I do like black cavendish so I thought I'd give this a try. At first, it tasted like cherry cough syrup but I kept on smoking. Once I got to the middle of the bowl the cherry changed into a smokey cherry flavor. It wasn't overpowering but the cherry was there. Maybe it was the black cavendish coming through. Either way, I really enjoyed the last half of the bowl. A little gook left over but not much. I do recommend smoking this blend or any cherry blend in one pipe as to avoid the mixing of flavors. It won't be in my regular rotation but I will smoke it when I want something different. My wife thought it smelled wonderful...she loves cherries.
