a bit of cherry cider


Fall is arriving slowly this year.. While the weather during the day up here in the rockies is quite warm, the evenings are brisk and cool. What a great time to bring out the cobs and enjoy the fall harvest.
As I am not normally an aromatic lover this new tabac from Sutliff is quite the treat. Black Cavendish, Burley and some Virginias greet you in the tin along with the smell of a cold jug of cherry apple cider. Light and flavorful. The tabac is not overly moist and this morning i filled a cob with this blend as I prepared to start my day.
Lunting thru the neighborhood to the commuter my taste buds enjoyed the cherry cider flavor. Not syruppy or overbearing as some cherry blends. The bowl took two lights to get it going but went thru the entire smoke with only a little dottle at the end. With most cherry tabacs a harsh bitterness tends to occur around the half way point. Not so with this blend.
A smooth flavorful smoke all the way thru. A definite addition for my morning rotation.
Another fine tabac from Carl.
