Cornell & Diehl - Corn Cob Pipe and A Button Nose 2oz
Updated review
OK, so I let this tin sit for a month and figured I'd give it another shot. This time I went into it already knowing it wasn't going to taste like cocoa and marshmallows. I don't know if it my mindset, or the additional time for the tobacco to rest for another month after opening it, but I'm sad that the tin is now empty from smoking all of it in a corn-cob pipe from MM. I may order another tin in the future. Having removed the anticipation of cocoa/marshmallow from my mind, this is not a bad tobacco. It does have a sweet spot about 1/3 way down the bowl where the smoke and flavors are the best but it doesn't last very long. I actually now enjoy this for what it is, not what it is advertised to be.

One of my favorites!
Not only is this my favorite from CAO, it is also one of my favorite tobaccos. It smells good in the tin and tastes even better when smoking. The room note is very pleasant as well. The flavors change constantly during the smoke with the best and most intense flavors coming around 2/3 of the way down the bowl.

Bang for the buck!
I really enjoy this tobacco. This was the first pipe tobacco that I ever tried, although I grew up smelling it all the time as it was my Dad's favorite. Great smell, great flavor, and easy on the wallet. I have yet to find a better tobacco at this price point that I enjoy more.

CAO - Cherrybomb 50g
Tastes like perfume
I've tried the CAO Cherry Bomb cigars and I'll preface this by saying that while I like cherries, I hate fake cherry flavoring. This came in a CAO set with 3 other flavors and I knew this would be my least favorite before even cracking open the tin, but I wanted to give it a fair shot. What I found was not what I expected. Instead of tasting like fake cherry, it tastes like that lingering smell of old lady's perfume (no offense to grandma). The smell of the tobacco in the tin is actually very nice and smells fresh like cherry juice, not like fake cherry flavoring. However, after smoking this a few times over the past 3 weeks in at least 3 different pipes, the only thing I taste is a thick, perfume flavor.

Not for me, tastes like melted plastic
I bought this after reading reviews and watching youtube reviews of people raving about how this tastes like hot cocoa with marshmallows. I've tried this blend now over the course of a week in 2 different MM cobs and a Savinelli Trevi 616KS, and I don't taste either of those flavors. The smell of the tobacco in the tin is as-described, but it tastes like the fumes of melting plastic and has bit of a medicinal flavor to it and is fairly bland otherwise. I don't know if I received a bad batch or not, but I can't recommend this product based on my experience. Gave it an extra 1/2 star for the cool artwork on the tin.
