Antietam's not the familiar artificial cherry that turns me off.
I used to avoid cherry blends altogether, but I bought several to give a try and ended up finding two I loved; Scotty's Bass Pond and Russ' Nation's Capital. They made me rethink my disdain for cherry blends, so I tried Antietam hoping it would be a good as Alamo and Sherman's March, both also from Brigadier Black and both quite nice, though not cherry. Antietam is not bad at all, in fact it is the same high quality as the other Brigadier Black tobaccos I've tried, but unlike the others, the flavor profile and aroma here were somewhat stunted, mild even. Not much of the cherry note comes through which may be what you're looking for and may have been what they were going for since so many cherry tobaccos are overly saturated. What does come through tastes natural and balanced with the sweetness of the black Cavendish and not the familiar artificial cherry that turns me off. Overall I'd say it is a good smoke, no bite, easily lit, stays lit, and is mild enough to be smoked anytime of day. The price for all the Brigadier Black blends is a bonus. If you like cherry blends and find too often they are way too strong, this may just be the blend for you. If you are a fan of 'very cherry' blends, this may leave you wanting more. Hope this helps.

A good flavorful blend that is a good value at the price.
Good flavor. I actually roll this blend in the Zen cigar rolling machine to make a cigar.

Sweet and smooth
Opening the can was a treat. Great aroma and smooth smoke. More cherry aroma than taste, but still very nice.

This tobacco makes me angry.
This tobacco makes me angry. I got this on a checkout special several months ago...I am not an aromatic guy. I opened the tin and my wife took a whiff and said it stunk like "funky cherries". I smoked a bowl of it. It surprised me. It tasted great. It didn't bite my tongue. It smelled fantastic...anywhere I smoked it, people loved the aroma. It didn't stink up my garage (man cave). It actually smelled better after smoking this. I blew through half a tin in a very short time (aromatics tend to hit the trash can quickly, or languish untouched at the back of my tobacco cabinet indefinitely, pulled out and smoked very seldom, then returned to exile after my tongue protests vehemently. It took DISCIPLINE to leave this one alone in the Mason jar I placed it in...and I mean a concerted effort! I have been on a Virginia/VaPer bender for upwards of four or five months now...I just love Virginia flakes. Tonight, the mood struck me for an aromatic after a particularly tasty meal. So I loaded up my Stanwell Royal Danish with Antietam that has been sealed in a Mason jar for what has to be close to five to six months. This tobacco makes me angry. Angry at the FDA for presuming to know what is best for us pipers...for taking away magnificent blends like this in a greedy money and power grab that is a violation of our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This tobacco is shockingly good with age on it...something highly uncommon amongst aromatics. And I just spent my tobacco budget on other (excellent) tobaccos not three days ago. I hope there is still some left when I can place my next order. Angry.

Love Antietam
My first experience with Brigadier Black blends was with Gettysburg. I loved it, so I tried Bull Run. Liked it as well. Next came Antietam and it is my favorite so far. It has good flavor, but isn't too sweet. Just right. And smokes cool.

BIG DISSAPOINTMENT
BIG DISSAPOINTMENT...2 for flavor. I added 60% BCA to give the tobacco some flavor. It helped.' I write reviews about tobacco that I do not enjoy so other people do not waste there money. This tobacco has no cherry taste that I can taste. I would purchase again.

Would Expect Quality in a Cannister and Got It.
Good OK smoke. Got it on a checkout special. Hardly any cherry aroma but pleasant. Can report almost virtually no bite at all and smokes cool and long. Very slightly moist as how I like my tobacco. Really have no complaints. Wish I bought it again but they had other cheaper "specials" going on I wanted to try on a limited budget.

Try it !...You'll Like it : )
Two more tins under my belt and free shipping to boot ! Still my go-to tobacco.. Antietam is the finest in the line hands down. I like this just a smidge better than Lane 1Q. Why ? because my empty jar says so.

Great Flavor!!!
Glad I bought this! It reminds of Molto Dolce from Suttif when opened it, but for a fraction of the price and not as wet. Nice subtle hint of cherry and vanilla with a fruity twist. No bite whatsoever. This is right up my alley... *note if you're looking for a straight up cherry tobacco taste try, Bjarne Viking Erik The Red.

Hooked!
Bought on what I call a"check out" special with my last order. After the first bowl, I was hooked! Taste and aroma are just wonderful, with my wife even saying it reminded her of baking cookies. Will be ordering more as this has been added to my shelf.

Well worth trying
Bought this at a sale/promotion price to get free shipping. Wasn't expecting much, but have been pleasantly surprised. A smooth mellow smoke with a hint of cherry. Little or no bite and often burns to the bottom with a fine grey ash. Will get more when my tin runs out. May try some of the other Brigadiers.

So good even the neighbors will like it.
mmmmmmmmm Antietam. Smooth and with a great room note. My neighbor even had to "pop" by and see if he could share a little. What are neighbors for.

Goos smoke!
Can't say I really detected a cherry note but maybe my palette isn't quite sophisticated enough. It is a very pleasant smoke with sweet overtones. Unlike many tobaccos, the topping isn't overdone and the taste of the tobacco comes through. I agree with many of the reviewers that this is an all-day smoke. Zero tongue bite.

Great Service
Products are great and delivery is extremely fast.

Great all day smoke !
Very good smoke can be a little wet but burns very well ; maybe due to the Florida humidity ? One can smoke this stuff all day . think i will try the other brigadier blends . Oh and the price is right for half a pound of tobacco.

Comes as advertised
You get a nice taste of sweet Cavendish Tobacco, with a solid hint of Cherry. I agree with a previous reviewer, that the best way to smoke it is with a slow sipping cadence. That really seems to help bring out the Black Cherry Flavor a bit more. Has a nice room note IMHO. Got a nice hour long smoke from my General Corn Cob with this tobacco. This tobacco is MELLOW. Nothing overwhelms you, but you get a solid taste of the Black Cavendish with just more than a hint of the Black Cherry. NOT goopy at all. Burns right down to White Ash.

Very Good Aromatic Blend!
Antietam is a fine aromatic blend that is a regular in my rotation. The tin note offers a pleasing cherry aroma with hints of confectioneries and vanilla. It lights easily and requires few relights. It smokes cool with no tongue bite. It burns evenly and completely without a goopy mess, and leaves minimal dottle. A gentle sipping cadence brings out the best of this blend - a mild cherry flavor that doesn't dominate the natural tobacco qualities. If you enjoy aromatics then give Antietam a try - I think you'll agree that it's a quality blend for a great price (and the tin art is pretty cool too).
Customer Testimonials
This is a very interesting blend. First it is nothing like what they show in the picture.. you expect to see black gold but it seems to have different tones from black to yellow. The smell is interesting but no cherry note that I can smell. If you smoke it to fast as i did the first time it can bite slightly so i can say it has no bite. But other than that its a nice mild smoke.
Ok, I finally got a chance to smoke this blend and what a surprise I got. As i mentioned before upon opening the tin i did not smell any cherry note but what i discovered is a scent I havent smelled in over 40 years which was the primary reason i started smoking pipes in the first place and a scent that had eluded me from finding it among any other tobaccos until now. It is an old fashion sent, sweet & fruity i would best describe it but not like any cherry. Perhaps some of the elder smokers here can pinpoint what it is I'm smelling in this blend ? The magic happened during the smoking process and not before. And what a delightful and pleaseant smoke it was guys. Actually smoking this blend doesnt smell like what your smelling out of the tin. This is what took me by suprise. My only other thought was I wish this distinctive aroma that I am smelling was a little more pronounced. I dont know what else is out in the market smells like this but it will do for me now that i finally found what I'm looking for in a tobacco blend. Its burns slowly which gave me about 2 hours time to smoke it. It burns into a fine powdery ash when your finsihed. It ran cool. NO TOUNGE BITE ! I know P&P only gave the room note a low score but the room note for me lasted and lasted like no other Aromatic that i have been smoking. So this was also a big plus I wasn't expecting. They say that finding your tobacco is like selecting a fine wine and I think I finally found my go to smoke from now on. This blend (Antietam) and Alamo are by far my favorite two blends out of the series. But Guys ! Give this one a try if you havent already, you might be pleasantly suprised like I was.
I didnt have time to smoke this blend yet but i did open the tin because i was curious what it smelled like.. The tin says it has a "smooth pleasant cherry note" but upon opening the tin it does not smell like cherry at all or any cherry ive ever smelled or eaten. I do not recognise this scent. It is an iteresting scent but maybe i'll have a better idea what it is when i smoke this. Most of BB blends pretty much smell like they say on the tins but this Antietam just doesnt smell like cherry to me. I am looking forward to smoking it and when I do i'll return to write a follow up on its performance. But dont be afraid to try it. Maybe your experiance will be different than mine ?
