Mature Virginia tobaccos have been added to a blend of choice African, Brazilian and other exotic tobaccos. Wide ribbon cut for a slow burn and cool smoke. A fruity vanilla flavour gives this blend the balance in flavour and room note that is desired by some pipe smokers.

Notes: Replaced by Black Cherry Cavendish (No.302).

The Virginias are a little grassy with a very mild herbal/floral note, though they don't show up much until you're near the end. Same goes for the earthy, woody burley: only a little nuttiness peeks through, more so at the finish. Te sugary black cavendish tends to dominate the other tobaccos. The black cherry is fairly pleasant, but diminishes some near the end and gets a little sour. The vanilla is mild. Has little nicotine. Burns wet even with some dry time, and leaves a little dottle. Needs relights. No bite unless you puff fast. Has an okay after taste. Can be an all day smoke.

Black cherry. What more do I say?

Actually, quite a lot I think. This was not what I expected really. I enjoy a nice sweet black cherry tobacco - I can live with a touch of artificiality and the knowledge that it isn't maybe as God intended, but this wasn't so sweet. Smells great, but the cherry taste itself isn't as prominent as I had hoped.

Perhaps I am used to less nicotine in my cherry blends, because the final part of the bowl on the five or six pipefulls I have had so far have left my head swimming. Not sure whether the excessive moisture has meant that I have had to work hard at keeping it alight, and therefore hard smoking has led me to OD on the nicotine, but it is a bit much for me.

Bit of tongue bite too, I'm afraid.

Enjoyed it mostly, hence the star rating, but not so sure I will rush to buy too much more when other cherry blends are more to my liking.

Meh - you win some and you lose some.

Where cherry blends are concerned, this is neither the best of the worst available. It seems to float somewhere in the middle for me.

A black cavendish heavily cased in cherry sauce, the blend has just a bit of a bite and more sweetness than some might like. Better than Lane products? Of course it is. However, it doesn't stand up to the likes of Gawith and Hoggarth Top Black Cherry. Of course, this costs about half as much as Top Black Cherry so that's to be expected.

I just didnt like it. Smells sublime in the bag, makes the whole room smell fantastic and the cute girls will sit closer to you. TWO STARS for that!! But, like many aromatics- I detect strange unnatural nuances, artificial type undescribeables. I must say though, I seldom smoke aromatics, and am not a fan. I will confess this was one of the first tobaccos I ever smoked and burned the hell out of my tounge, and later sogged up a no name briar in ignorance smoking it all day long...So perhaps my scarred tounge has PTSD and rejects it. For the amature... this burns hot and wet so learn patience!

Medium Medium to Strong Very Full Very Pleasant

A light but powerful tobacco, it's very aromatic and some people would say soapy, I would however refer to this flavouring as "floral" and like a smoother version of the pungent orientals which characterise the Dunhill blends. The exotic tobacco from Africa etc. must be to blame. A lovely room note and pleasant vanilla after taste melt comfortably into the dark cherry mid-bowl and the sweet nut virginia flavours towards the end. I think of it as a slow walk round our orchard - picking a few ripe cherries and then taking a few hazelnuts as you leave!

Coarse cut means that I found lighting a bit of a hassle, but the persitance was well worth it, as a slow puff every now and again holds it steady. The dottle is as expected from a Cavendish blend, but not as much as the Kendal/Exclusiv type black mixtures.

Over here in England it is expensive loose in its class and I have yet to see it in pouches/tins.

P/S Cherry contain's a smooth sweet creaminess as well as strength.The taste is full bodied cavendish laced with cherry flavouring & showed no sign of bite to me.This tobacco is very dark & if not packed to tightly is easy to light.I found this to taste & behave exactly as it was described.Whan I feel like something sweet with a bit of a kick to it, I smoke this. It may not be for everyone but I keep it on hand & enjoy the change.Those around me love the rich smell. (In it's own class) I'll give it 3 Star's out of 4.

The aroma is =OVERWHELMING= when you open the pouch. Do not be misled by the innocent looking pouch. This stuff has some POTENT casing. That being said, however, it tastes pleasant. The black cherry nuances are obviously there, and the cavendish is decent. It has a hint of spiciness to it, but there's more of a sourness I don't especially like that comes from eating cherries..

Towards the middle of the bowl, the cherry flavor intensifies somewhat, but this is a WET smoke. You'll garner a lot of steam with it. You may want to dry it some before smoking it. I'm slow, methodical, and careful with how I smoke, so I don't burn too easily, but rest assured, this tobacco is indeed pretty wet.

At the end of the bowl, there is a bit of a sour taste, but the nuttiness lends itself nicely. I compare it to perhaps eating the crust of the pie last. It's a fine tobacco, though it's far from my favorite.

I enjoy Peter Stokkebye black cavendishes so decided to give this a shot. Have not been a big fan of cherry tobaccos, most seem to be very medicinal. The Black Cherry blend is quite nice, right amount of moisture, good pouch smell. The cherry smell is pleasant, not overwhelming. When lit it does a good job of staying lit, not too much trouble to keep burning. I was very surprised, the cherry taste is not too strong, and not at all chemically. I am very happy with this blend, will definitely keep this unhand for those times I want a nice desert smoke. No bite, very friendly smoke, I would say is worth a try for sure.
