The fine folks at C&D start this confection with their traditional Cavendish base of Burleys and a touch of Virginia, mix in a soupçon of Green River Vanilla, then drizzle it with a Raspberry sauce fit for Escoffier himself. It's a small wonder that Berry Good is one of their most popular aromatic blends.
Tin note is powerful.... room note.... not so much, no trace of berry in the smoke at all. burns very cool, and stays lit very well.

I smoked a couple of bowls of this in a couple different pipes with same results. Not a lot of room note or flavor, kinda disappointed. It was smooth, slow burning, with no bite.

Updated: After leaving my tin alone for a bit it tastes much less overly sweet and is now a nice, natural raspberry flavor. Giving it an extra half a star, very nice when I'm looking for something lighter to kind of reset my taste buds. I normally go...

This tobacco offers a smooth, cool smoke, no detectable artificial flavor. Earthy and with a tinge of sweetness towards the bottom of the bowl. It smokes cleanly to the bottom and is easy to repack and smoke again, albeit I have trouble pinning where... Read More it's name "BERRY good" came from as there isn't much of a berry flavor.

The positive- I didn’t get any bad tongue bite from it, and it burns nice! But I didn’t really get any good flavors from it. Definitely not any berry 😏 But just not much of anything.

I just did not care for Berry Good, and I ended up dumping it out after 3 or 4 attempts at enjoying it. HOWEVER, if you’re reading this review, I will definitely recommend Apricots and Cream by C&D! I’ve discovered great tobaccos, by people leaving a negative review on one tobacco, by comparing it to another..so I thought I’d do the same! Read Less
I was extremely excited when my wife ordered me some goodies from both smoking pipes and Pipes& Cigar's.
Upon reading the description of this particular product, she ordered it for me, thinking it would be something I would enjoy. She and I bo... Read Moreth were very wrong!!
This literally tasted like some cheap tobacco products people buy to roll cigarettes!
The room note was not very good, and the taste was much worse than the smell.
From start to finish, it has almost a dirty taste, and even after mixing it with the "berries and cream", the taste still was overpowering and unpleasant, and that's putting it mildly. On it's own, it leaves a lot of goo in the bowl, and you need to clean your pipe thoroughly after use.
The only good thing that I can really say about this product is, once it's lit, it burns fast and with very little help. So much so that, you don't even need to relight while smoking!
More than likely I will not order this product again, unless it's changed drastically! I also cannot recommend this product to people either.
While I'm not wanting to leave a bad review, I do want people to know that, this is NOT as advertised. I do hope that the product description is revised, because it smelled not tasted of anything remotely close to Berry's of any kind.
Now, the Berry's and Cream was simply amazing! That's something I don't mind smoking again, and will most likely order once again!!
I hope this review does help others, especially those like I, who really enjoy aromatic tobacco. Read Less
Nothing there. I was expecting more flavor and aroma. Even the burley tasted weak. Although, it can be smoked all day if you don't care about taste and aroma. I smoked it several times in both a briar and a cob. I am glad I tried it, but will prob... Read Moreably not buy it again. Maybe with age it might get better. Read Less
This is one folks usually love or hate. It’s a burley lover’s mild aromatic. But for some, it doesn’t seem to work. I love burley-heavy blends—my favorite, hands down, is C&D’s nonaromatic Pegasus—but some burley-heavy or all-burley blends pack too h... Read Moreeavy a soapy, heartburn-inducing punch to the back of the throat or are a bit too smoky. This blend, for me at least, suffers from the former. The soapiness in fact overpowers the delicately infused berry, and despite my tending toward nonaromatics, I have a soft spot for blends that include raspberry, blackberry, currant, and the like. Really wanting to enjoy this undoubtedly high-quality tobacco, as well as keep things all C&D, I blended Berry Good with some C&D blending tobaccos until I got it to reveal, for me at least, what’s so very good about it. Here’s what I came up with (for half a pound): 4 ounces of Berry Good, 2 ounces of C&D’s Bright Virginia Ribbon, 2 ounces of C&D’s Red Virginia Cavendish. Think Pegasus with a tinge of tangy-sweet raspberry or strawberry. Smooth, well-rounded, and cool. It reminds me a little of an erstwhile American standby, Four Seasons, which is no longer in production (not even Sutliff’s match of it). I’m glad I didn’t give up on Berry Good. Read Less
