A Wonderful Dessert Blend
I enjoy all tobaccos, from VA, VA/Per, Burley, and Aros.
I have been looking for a cherry, or cherry like blend, for some time. Most that I have found, although great cherry flavor.
Most haven't met my false expectations of the fake cherry flavor I've grown accustomed to.
I decided to order a few ounces of the Bear Blend and it's been what I've been looking for.
It has a wonderful natural cherry flavor that's a little bit sweeter than most cherries I've had, but not quite as sweet as maraschino cherry, and the caramel is subdued in the background.
It's a nice, flavorful mix of cherry, caramel and tobacco, that has an extremely pleasing room note, and goes great as an after dinner dessert smoke. It's not an all day smoker for me, but one I would smoke a few times a week.
For those who like cherry, I think you will like this, for those who are disappointed in the cherry flavors you've tasted, then this one may be worth trying out.
A few last notes, it's not goopy, but does require a bit of dry time. Even after I did the "pinch" test it was still a little too moist, but once its' dried out, it burns well, I sipped so it didn't get to hot either.
