Not buying again
Because it's better than abysmal but there's no 1.5 star rating. The cherry topping is harsh and acrid, completely overwhelming any of the goodness of the leaf. You had _really_ better like cherry and just about nothing else if you're going to keep this.

Paladin Black Cherry is an excellent "dessert" smoke. The black cherry taste is as pleasant as the aroma.

God awful, terrible pipe tobacco!
Quite possibly the worst pipe tobacco I ever smoked. I had read many reviews blasting this tobacco but I never believed that any pipe tobacco could be that bad. I was wrong. If you like this abomination, God bless you. I took two puffs and I was done. Threw the whole package away. There was enough propylene glycol in it to paint a house. It will take me some time to get the smell and taste out of my mouth. I used a cob that I was about to toss away and thank God for that. It would have been permanently ghosted. If you have suicidal tendencies or are a masochist, by all means try it. Not me. Yuck.

To Hot to handle
I smoked Paladin Black Cherry back in the 70's and I liked it. Now, it seems to hot on the tounge and to much Cherry flavor.

Cough syrup with chemical aftertaste.
I agree with the review that said this tastes like cough syrup. Also leaves a lingering chemical taste in your mouth. Won't be buying this again. Bought several cheery blends looking for a good one. My favorite one so far is Cult - Blood Red Moon.

Good tasty cherry baccy
Good tasty cherry baccy. One of my "carry around" pouches at work. Little tongue bite, lot of flavor. No complaints.

Paladin tobacco tasty. Great tobacco at work.
Paladin black cherry tobacco is very tasty and burns decently... not too wet but tolerable. I carry a pouch of Paladin as my workaday tobacco. Tough day? Paladin will make it cherry.

Extremely Pleasant Experience
After a long hiatus from pipes, smoking only cigars for the last 10 years or so, I decided to bring the pipes back onto active duty. One of the first tobaccos to be incinerated in my pipes was Paladin Black Cherry, an old favorite. And it certainly did not disappoint me in the least. An incredible taste and "truck note" brought back many fine memories of times past and promises of many new experiences. I found as before, no tongue bite if smoked properly, and an absolutely enjoyable smoking experience. The cherry flavor and aroma are just outstanding, and the aftertaste makes me want to immediately fill up another bowl. I actually have many different pipe tobaccos stored in Mason jars, and this one sits proudly in the front. When a couple of other tobaccos that are currently out of stock come in, I will add more PBC to the order. Thank you Pipes and Cigars for the great service.

Not bad for a cherry blend
I ordered this because my wife's grandfather smoked a cherry tobacco and she always loved the smell. Since he passed away she has spoke of it often. This turned out to not be his brand (probably Middleton cherry but its no longer made). That being said, the smell from the pouch was very strong, it was also a bit wet and had me worried. I was thinking I'd be in for a heck of a bite and a sickeningly cherry syrup taste. But it didn't bite at all, the taste was much more subtle than the pouch note and the room note was more woody than I would have guessed. It's not my thing but it packed and smoked well with no bite and was pretty smooth considering. The price is also fair. If cherry is your thing, give it a try. Not much to lose and you may like it.

Could get this pipe tobacco at any gas-mart when I was a young adult! It was one of my first favorites! It's hard to find ANYWHERE near me now! I'm SO glad P&C can send it to me when I have a craving!

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.
2 out of 5
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.

Best Cherry and a Good Buy!

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.

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.
