The Country Squire Tobacconist Cherokee

(3.42)
Our signature blend. A precise mixture of the choicest Virginias pair with toasted cavendish to create a semi-sweet blend that has a fantastic tobacco flavor. An excellent daily smoke!

The Virginias offer a lot of tart and tangy citrus, grass, a little tangy dark fruit, earth and wood along with a drop or two of honey. They are the lead components. The toasted black cavendish adds some sugar and, well, toast in a strong support role. The rich, creamy nougat sublimates the tobaccos quite a lot, though it doesn’t totally drown them out. I sense a hint of honey as well as a light fruitiness that seems to be cherry, but it's overwhelmed by the nougat. The strength is in the center of mild to medium, while the taste is a step below the media threshold. The nic-hit - not often very evident in aros of this kind - is mild. No chance of bite, harshness or rough edges. The tobacco is a little moist, but I saw no need to dry it. Burns cool, clean and a tad slow with a very consistent sweet, creamy flavor from start to finish that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste and room note. Leaves just a little moisture in the bowl, and requires a few relights. An all day smoke. Three and a half stars.

A good crowd pleasing aromatic with a light casing that offers plenty of flavor with no bite. I have gone back to it many times over the years but it has never hit the spot for me, doesn't mean it isn't good though, there are many who smoke nothing else and love the flavor profile. I believe if you lean more toward the aromatic blends you must give it a try, 40 years of being a best seller for a smoke shop such as the The Country Squire has to speak to something magical.

I'm a big fan of Jon David and Beau's "The Country Squire Radio" podcast. JD is a top-notch proprietor and there's a reason this blend is highly recommended.

Cherokee will bite if you are heavy handed, but I found that if I sip it right on the edge of going out, the flavor palette blossoms. The mellow Virginias are up front on the draw and are followed by sweet Cavendish with notes of honey and nougat. Burned dry. Low-nic. A truly all day smoke.

If you like nougat aromatics, this is a must try.

Bag note is a Cherry with some heavy fruit and nougat. The smoke is less Cherry and some earthiness and some fruit cake.and nougat. Performs well and is pretty mild. Very Good but not like Rivendell or Old Toby.

Yes it’s sweet, but it sure is yummy! However, for me at least, this initial yummy factor does wear thin by the end of the bowl. Brown sugar and molasses dominate the flavor profile but there are still some natural grassy Virginia flavors discernable. There is also a slight nutty tone which couldn’t derive from the Virginia, so it must be the way the Cavendish is cased. If you have a clay or meerschaum that helps keep the sweetness in check, cobs only make it seem sweeter. Works fine as a blender, too (and because of the slight nutty undertone I find it works nicely with one of the Edgeworth imitations).

I’ve enjoyed Cherokee and always get a three star experience from it, but I won’t be ordering more as I personally favor Rivendell and Cowboy Coffee for my permanent rotation. If you’re looking to add something new on your next order I suggest Indian Outlaw, which is really the best of both Cherokee and Choctaw. Happy smokes!
