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.
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.

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.

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...

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
