Paladin Black Cherry

Paladin pipe tobacco contains Burleys and Virginias and they meld together with a Black Cherry topping to create both a satisfying and delightfully flavorful smoking experience. This classic American aromatic has been a staple among the P&C Faithful since day one, and it's a consistent best-seller for us today.

Kevin's Staff Pick - "The smell of Paladin brings back memories of my father and his pipe. He would sit contently and smoke his pipe after his day was done. That was his way of relaxing, and I still smoke an occasional bowl just to bring back those memories."

Amazing aroma
Smells amazing opening it and even better burning, I roll my own cigarettes never was much of a pipe smoker. This will work for rolling but may need to dry out a few days first but good flavor from what I can see. I tried 50/50 of this and ohm mild mint and it works pretty good and taste is pretty good too. If you do what I did make sure there's more of the dry tobacco than the cherry or it will gum up your machine. Nice cherry flavor and amazing aroma.

Great room aromatic
WOW. I'm a huge fan of Bjarne Viking Erik The Red but figured why not try this. I'm very pleasantly surprised with the beautifully sweet cherry smell as I opened the pouch. Yet when lit, it was a nice cool very pleasant but not overly powerful smoke. This, is going to make a great addition to the cherry collection.

Just OK for a new pipe smoker!
I'm a relatively new pipe smoker. I tried the Paladin Black Cherry, and although I don't know that much about tobaccos yet, I thought it was just OK. It was fairly strong with a very faint cherry taste. Towards the end of the bowl I did notice that it burned quite hot and had some tongue bite. I'll have to try another cherry blend I think!

O.K. Nothing great
Rather dry. Very faint taste of cherry.

You had better really like cherry! :)
On the one hand, it is a CHERRY tobacco. On the other, it is quite a strong flavor - to the point of overpowering in my opinion. Too much for me.

Paladin Black Cherry
I smoked up a sample of it and found it to be very mild, long burning and tasty. Now I'm waiting for my 2 lb back-order to arrive.

Paladin Black Cherry
I can smoke this straight all day long. Sometimes I mix it with a menthol cigarette tobacco 50/50. I love the flavor and always get compliments on the aroma.

Not for me.
I smoke mostly aromatics, and I have a fondness for OTC brands like this. This is the exception and the first tobacco I have thrown away. It taught me that I do have a limit to just how heavily cased a blend I can tolerate after all. My guess is that if you like this particular rendition of a black cherry flavoring, you'll really like this as an inexpensive OTC. For me, it was just bad. I felt like my tongue was coated in cough syrup during and after smoking. The room note was noticeably chemically to me. My wife and daughter liked the smell though, so your mileage my vary. I'm glad I tried it, but it wasn't for me.

Nice Smoke!
Paladin Black Cherry works well for my taste. Smoke it nice and easy in a well seasoned briar pipe and it can reward you with a sweet, spicy flavor for most of the bowl while offering a solid tobacco taste overall. Definite cherry flavor. Smoke it in a "tired" pipe or smoke it too hard, it can be a bit harsh. I like it best in a briar pipe rather than a corncob. Good room note and not hard on the wallet. I plan to buy a 12-oz. can and use Paladin on a regular basis right along with my Carter Hall. K.H. LaCrosse, WI

Well, I like it!
Some have said it tastes too strong, but I like the cherry of Paladin! To me it resembles the marinated cherries in Breyer's cherry-vanilla ice cream. It's one of my first pipe-smokes, back when I was 18, and sometimes I get a hankering for the taste. Sure glad I can find it at P&C!

Black cherry
As some of the other reviews state, it's not an aggressive cherry taste and is pretty smooth. I let mine dry out a little and it smokes great.

Cherry smokers should love this. It is very heavy on the cherry. It smokes smooth and burns well.

It only tastes expensive
Rich tobacco and dark cherry taste with a matching aroma. Very good indoor smoke, exceptional outdoors, especially in cooler temps.
Customer Testimonials
Good old Paladin, fine choice for rich cherryfull flavor, very cherry smoke.
An "alright" smoke, if money is an issue it is a decent well burning smoke. There are a lot of better tasting cherry blends out there, but in a pinch if you love cherry the price is right.
Some of the reviews made me worry about this one but it isn't too bad. First off I'm not a cherry fan but like a little variety so buy a pouch or tin of cherry here and there. This smoke reminds me of Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic with a Cherry flavor added. It can bite if smoked too fast but is fine otherwise. The cherry flavor is evident in the taste and room note but is not overpowering. I actually like this as well as any other cherry I've tried and for a lot less money. I might buy this again when I get a hankering for cherry.
Paladin was an unsmokeable mess several years ago. Since the manufacturer has changed, Paladin is now a totally different animal. The quality of tobacco, flavor and aroma is wonderful now. I tried three pouches just to be sure my first pouch wasn't a fluke. I think the change to high quality tobacco made all the difference as the bite is gone and the bitterness has been eliminated, also the cough medicine cherry flavor has been one toned down and to, upgraded to a much more natural black cherry flavor, before it was a Shasta black cherry soda topping. I am very happy to see Paladin back to its former glory!
I haven't tried this in years! I see bad reviews and I see good reviews. I really enjoy this tobacco. It is one of a few cherry blends which I enjoy. It has a wonderful pouch aroma and a great room aroma. It is mild and I have never had any problems with bite and burns to the bottom of the bowl. Will be ordering more of this!
This is one nice smoke, good sweet flavor without the bite, with great aroma. Also a great sweet smell right out of the pouch. One of my favorites. If you like the sweeter side of pipe tobacco, then this is the one for you. I know you will enjoy it.
This was one of my "firsts" back in the late '70s. It's been impossible for me to find locally this year, when I craved a trip down Memory Lane. I'm SO glad I found it here! Thanks, P&C!!!
Nice pouch aroma. Smokes hot and can bite a lot. Does not taste very good. If you like cherry blends you can do a lot better than this one.
Very strong cherry aroma (which is good since it's a cherry-flavored tobacco). Room note "sociable", however in terms of taste it seemed like I put some cough medicine in my mouth before inhaling a mild tobacco. It is smooth, however, and mild. I'd recommend this to a beginner who didn't want to spend a lot on his/her try.
