Paladin - Black Cherry 1.5oz
Beautiful Flavor and Aroma
Wow, got lucky twice with pouches... This is surprisingly delicious. Smells like cherry Twizzlers... Beautiful room note. Starts out with great cherry flavor almost like Amaretto. Then transitions into an old school sweet and leathery "Grampa type" tobacco flavor and aroma. Halfway through it becomes a little spicy, with a slight cinnamony flavor, Then ends with a very pronounced cocoa flavor. I am very impressed with both pouches I got. This one, and Peterson's Irish Dew, were both home runs. I highly recommend trying one or both of them if you like sweet aromatic blends.
Cornell & Diehl - Briar Fox 16oz
Ok, I normally prefer English and Balkan blends. Tried this on a whim... And boy am I glad I did. This is a wonderful journey in smoking … Smells like a box of raisins. Starts out smooth and tangy. Then transitions from hints of Cinnamon, and incense to a spicy firecracker at the finish... I absolutely love this stuff and am buying the 16oz. brick.
