Cornell & Diehl - Cherry Jubilee
Not for noobs...
As a novice pipe smoker I'm usually drawn to aromatics for their unobtrusive room notes and pleasant mild taste. I had high hopes for this particular blend but was downright disappointed. It was definitely not goopy since I actually had to relight only a couple of times but that's the only thing going for this blend. After just 10 minutes of smoking I found the taste and smell unbearable. It was as if I was smoking a cigarette or a cheap cigar. Before I knew it the nicotine hit me in an undesirable way and tongue bite was intolerable. I tried to make it through half the bowl but just had to quit on it. Bottomline is if you're looking to chase some cherry flavor look somewhere else. Blood Red Moon is superior to this aromatic in every way.
