This blend is unpretentious and only aspires to be a basic staple. I am reminded of my very first experience smoking a pipe 25 years ago. It was a warm April night and my dad showed me his pipes and tobacco jar. I can still see the glass jar with the wooden lid. When I opened the jar there was a smell of cherry tobacco. The tobacco was probably something from the grocery store, however. He showed me, at age 13, how to pack and told me about puffing not inhaling. We were watching TV and the aroma soon filled the little room. Although he didn't stick with the pipe and I didn't pick the pipe back up for another 5 years, most of my pipe tobacco experience is based on that episode.

Anyway, the pouch aroma is what you would expect. The leaf seems a bit brighter in color than your typical Cherry Cavendish Drug Store blend. The packing is nice and it takes a match very well. If you've read the above paragraph, that is the only way my dad would attempt to light a pipe. The first thing to notice is the lack of tongue-bite. The cherry flavor is nice, but not over-powering. There is some real tobacco taste here, as well. I am not saying that this is the end-all and be-all of cherry tobaccos, but it is pretty good for the price. The flavor stays the same all the way down to the last puff. And, there is no metallic after-taste when you are finished. The Nicotine level is pretty low. The ash is, surprisingly, fine and only a little discolored. The pipe is left dry and clean. This is very unlike those typical cherry blends that peiple rightly hate. I have given it 3 stars for the way it accomplishes what it is trying to accomplish. I have had many other higher-class aromatics behave a lot worse. The aroma is one that the ladies will appreciate without you having to give too much up in taste. If you ever find yourself wanting to re-live some smoke from the past, and a lot of us got started with Cherry something, try this blend. Your tongue will not pay the price for your trip down memory lane. And, if you know a younger person that may be interested in trying the sacred weed, keep a half pound of this in a glass jar with a wooden lid. Someone may be writing about you 25 years or more from now!

i usually smoke dunhill englishes, as this is primarily what my tobacconist carries in that department, but on occassion i will venture to their jars of aromatics, and Stokkebye's cherry hit the spot.

As usual, the previous reviewers do a good job of describing this blend, although my tastes rate it a little higher than most. Personally, I like Cherry a lot. I find the flavoring light, enjoyable and consistent throughout the bowl. It packs easily and smokes well to the bottom, burning completly to a fine ash. Light, tamp and relight and you're all set. I am not a fan of Black Cavendish so the lighter Brown Cavendish is a welcome change to many of the aromatics out there. Like most Stokkebeye blends available in bulk, it is reasonably priced, which to me (retired) is a real plus. A nice, easy, change of pace smoke, which I always keep in my inventory, and smoke a bowl or two a week. If you enjoy Cherry flavored tobaccos, you should certainly give this a shot.

A nice boutique style cherry. I didnt like the flavor much and It came across as unnatural. I would recommend it over any drug store versions of 'cherry'

I picked up an ounce of this about three years ago when I was doing a survey of all of the cherry flavored tobaccos I could get my hands on, and it stood out then as the only one that seemed to be a good quality tobacco with a tasteful cherry topping, not gloopy sweet cough-syrupy stuff like 99% of the cherry blends out there. I probably smoked it once or twice, but as my tobacco endeavours progressed, however, I sort of forgot about this one until I was going through one of my many tupperware containers full of various and sundry tobaccos last night. As one of the other reviewers has mentioned, this seems to be the #1 Natural with cherry flavoring. I packed up a smallish half bent and fired up this evening and was quite favorably impressed...more so than on my original sampling years ago. There's a nice underlayment of mild Danish cavendish, and the cherry flavoring whisps in and out like a harmonic, in no way does it attempt to take center stage, rather, it nicely complements the entirety of the tobacco. No wetness was noticed at all, and the bowl progressed nicely through three or four interruptions with relights. It is not a particularly strong tobacco, but definately held off my nicotine jones until after dinner. This might not be an everyday smoke for me, but I'll definately be ordering some in bulk to jar away.

If you like, or would like to like cherry flavored tobaccos, give this a try.

The above notes state "Similair (sic) leaf selection as #1 & #2 Blends. Carefully developed through the same Cavendish Process". The notes on #1 Natural state,"A light loose and ready rubbed Cavendish blend consisting of quality mild flue-cured Virginia tobaccos with some light Burleys". So// there you have it.

An important thing to note from above is that this is not a goopy black cavendish mixture, but a brown cavendish. It has been _lightly_ sweetened, in the PS style, and the flavoring has been applied with restraint. (American blenders could learn a good deal from the Danes about this!) It is not sticky to the touch. #3 Cherry is definitely #1 natural with an aroma added.

This mixture does not sizzle when lit, a good sign IMO. The tobacco burns well without leaving a goopy dottle at the bottom of the bowl. This needs about the average number of lights for a non-goopy during the course of the bowl. The cherry aroma/flavor does last throughout the bowl (another weakness of black cav-based aromatics).

A note on the cherry flavoring: it actually has a fruity taste/aroma to it, not a cherry cough-syrup taste. It does let the admittedly mild tobacco taste come through.

All in all, another very good mild aromatic from P. Stokkebye, IMO, the best of the aromatic blenders. If you are into such stuff. In my quest for smokable cherry aromatics, this is the best of about a dozen so far, and WAY above the quality of drugstore blends.
