The Captain Black blends are a line of aromatic Cavendish concoctions that enjoy an immensely widespread popularity the world over. The Cherry blend, as you might expect, combines sweet-smoking Cavendish leaf with a sound kick of cherry casing, for a very flavorful smoke.
This burns hot and will bite you if you are too fast. The smell from the bag and the taste are on the chemical side. If you have nothing else to smoke, you have to choose it, otherwise skip it and look for a better choice.
This was my first pipe tobacco, it had a good room note but it was very wet, took a while to dry it. I packed my pipe and got tongue bite, so dried another stash of this for longer (an hour or so) and had the same thing happen. There are way too man...

Has a funky note to it that reminds me of old, yellow, brittle paper. Maybe that paste we had in grade school for crafts when it would dry and turn yellow... Funky is all I can think to call it.
Tin note is fun. Cheap, artificial cherry that you'll ... Read Morerecognize. Made me want a Luden's 🍒
Room Note is mild cherry and a hint of cigarette. Not bad, really.
Burns fast and I can see this getting bitey for some.
I have to call this one unsmokable for me. Read Less
I've been a pipe smoker for several years now. Admittedly, I prefer aromatics (specifically Lane Limited 1-Q and Captian Black Original [white]). I decided to try my 1st cherry blend and since I already had an established working partnership with Cap... Read Moret. Black, I decided to try their Cherry. I'm not sure exactly what I expected, but I am sure this wasn't it...This tastes just like the artificial flavor of cherry ChapStick. If that's what you're seeking, then you'll find it here. I'll continue to try some other cherry blends, but I've had Capt. Black Cherry twice: the first time and the last time... Read Less
Well, this is one of the first blends I have smoked and it was what my father smoked exclusively. So, it had some nostalgic value for me, which made me pick it up in the first place. But aside from nostalgia, it isn't a good blend whatsoever. The tas... Read Morete is quite chemical and it aches my tongue, even if it doesn't bite. It just gives it some ache. The cut is okay, but with a noticeable amount of twigs and stems within the pouch. It is quite moist out of the pouch..And it stays like this for a long long time. the only good thing about it is the aroma out of the pouch and the room note which people complement Read Less
Having smoked the Borkum Cherry at other times this did not compare favorably...I noticed when the pack was opened the smell was like a wax candle smell and the smoke was sadly the same. won't buy again.
This was an okay over the counter tobacco but just too much tongue bite to deal with. There are too many other better aromatics out there. However for the price, it is worth a try to see how your palate feels about it.
This tobacco was amazing from the minute I opened the package to the bottom of the bowl. The roomnote was fantastic and the smoke was very smooth and delicious. If you are an aromatic fan, this is a must have.
