Cherry sweetness from the Captain
If you like 'em sweet and aromatic, the buck stops here. More pipe candy from Captain Black. Everyone loves the room note and the flavor is pretty authentically cherry. I always keep some in stock. If pipe smoking was a vacation, this is Disney World.

Surprisingly Pleasant
To me, the initial experience of opening a previously un-tried tobacco has been one of the things I've most been enjoying as I've worked my way through a bunch of different tobaccos. Having set that stage, I want to my review of this tobacco by saying how disappointed I was in this tobacco, pre-smoke. I expected a fragrant, mellow fruit aroma and was surprised to get hit with a smell I associate with cheap drug-store cough drops. It is a strong odor... Moving beyond my initial revulsion, though, I was extremely surprised at the mellow smoke, lack of bite, and pleasant room-note. In a funny way, this tobacco was nothing like what I expected at any of the parts of the process: It was cheap, but well-cut and acceptably dried and packed well, almost overwhelming in the pouch, but very pleasantly smoke-able in the pipe. If you're looking for something that is most certainly not an "artisan" or "boutique" brand, but is nice to have on-hand when you want something with a little cherry twist, this is a surprisingly good choice.

Beware... Very Cherry
Umm. Well it is very Cherry.... but way to much for me. I like aromatics but this is heavy on cherry... smokes exactly how it smells. and actually ghosted my pipe. might want to dedicate a pipe to this blend if its your thing but not mine. Did burn smooth. Will not be reordering.

Nice cherry flavor but not too sweet
My favorite cherry tobacco. I love the Captain Black line of tobaccos and this is my favorite in their line up. It is mildly sweet, with a delicate cherry flavor. Not too sweet, not too overpowering. Some aromatics I find heavy and sickeningly sweet. Not this one. It had a perfect balance of sweet with a very mild bite. Highly recommended. This is the one I often smoke after dinner. The room note is wonderful too and often draws compliments.

Just don't
Pouch smells like delicious red licorice. Smoke tastes like chemically potpourri.

CB Cherry...Good Stuff!
After a little airing out, CB Cherry is a wonderful smoke. Not a smoke all day tobacco, but very satisfying none the less.

This is not palidin and thats great.
If your looking for a cherry tobacco this is a good one from captain black. After several bowls it burns hot almost like a vapor so I pack lose and draw light and never once had tounge bite. Leaves a pleasing taste and a mild room note.

Smooth blends
I decided to try a couple of different flavors of Captain black pipe tobacco rather than just go with the standard flavor and I was pleasantly surprised... even my wife thought that the smell was very nice, the tobacco is always smooth and never a disappointment no matter which Captain black I have tried. I am a casual pipe smoker and have tried many varieties and I keep coming back to the old standard, you won't be disappointed in any flavor

Captain Black Cherry (my first review)
I'm relatively new to pipe smoking & aromatics in general. I've always been partial to the cherry tobaccos because of the way them smelled. Reminded me of when I was younger and hanging around with the older guys with their pipes. The CBC is one of the few aromatics that I've tried that tastes as it smells. I've tried the Cult blood red moon & Mac Barren's seven seas both were nice but it was the Captain Black cherry that tasted & smelled the best. This isn't just my opinion, I've been told that by friends who've been with me while I'm smoking. They also thought the CBC was the nicest of the various Cherry tobaccos I've tried. Regards, Matt

Great Purchase!
Saw that you had Captain Black Cherry after I had ordered my husband his usual Captain Black. I usually order him a sleeve of the cherry and he loves it but it never came in the can where the better value is. When we got the regular the catalog showed they now carried the Cherry in a can!!! Their return department quickly and efficiently switched them out through the mail and we have one happy husband. Thank you "Pipes and Cigars" for your great service :)

Black Cherry Heaven
Beautiful aroma that gets complimented every time I light it. Even out of the pouch, the fragrance is balanced and fresh. The smoke is full and white, however the tobacco is bold in taste and has a bit of bite to it. For the price, this is a great, fragrant tobacco to enjoy.

Over the top flavor...flavor is too artificial. Mixed 1 part with 3 parts Lane 1Q and it was pretty good. Will not buy again though.

Try it - you'll love it
Best tobacco with cherry flavor I've ever tasted. Smoked cool and smooth. Very pleasant taste of cherry caramel. Pleasing not only the smoker, but also to all people around. What is very important to me - the same tobacco, either in the small 1.5 OZ pouch or in a large 12 OZ tin. If you get to sample a small pouch, you can be sure, in a large tin will be the same tobacco. In my opinion, the Captain Black is the best tobacco in the world.

Customer Testimonials
I seem to have gotten one of the lighter variants, as the cherry flavor was very subtle. Not bad otherwise, but nothing special.
This was the first pipe tobacco I ever smoked so I didn't know what to expect. The pouch smell is very strong cherry. Reminds me of old fashioned ribbon licorice. I only smoked a few bowls and its OK. It does leave a waxy feeling on my tounge. It makes me want to spit a lot. OK for "over the counter tobacco" but I would rather spend my money on better brands and flavors.
Tried some today. Cherry flavor is definitely there, maybe a bit too much. I may have gotten a stronger batch, but I had some bite even when smoked leisurely through a churchwarden. I may try to age some to see what happens, and mix some and see if that helps. Not a bad smoke, but not one of my favorites
I like the other Captain Black varieties ok, but this one is terrible. It's like trying to smoke cherry cough drops. Nasty!
The best cherry tobacco I've tried so far.....good flavor, no tongue bite, and it smells great......
Not particularly my favorite blend from Captain Black. But seeing as it "varies" I may have gotten a lighter blend during the winter. That being said, it's not a bad blend by any means. I just prefer Captain Black Royal to this.
For a cherry blend it's okay. Let's put it this way, if they stopped making this flavor I could care less.
Buyer beware in regard to the Cherry Flavor of this tobacco. It does "Vary" as the Strength Rating indicates. Over the summer and into early autumn of 2013 I purchased several pouches, and was getting a VERY strong, rich, bold taste of Cherry from this tobacco. (exactly what I was looking for). Then, on my last few purchases, the taste is MUCH more mild, more like a "hint" of Cherry than a Strong, Rich flavor. It's one of the few tobaccos I have seen with "Varies" as the Strength indicator......but I can tell you from personal experience, it does in fact.....vary. The Strong, Rich, Bold taste of Cherry was out of this world good.......the more subtle, mild taste I have been getting late;y (this winter 2014), is meh......ho hum.....not so good IMHO.
