What does it smoke like?
Blood Red Moon is a full aromatic pipe tobacco.  The taste of the tobacco is not entirely overwhelmed by the topping, but rather combines into one flavor.  I taste very sweet cherry, and dark chocolate.  The flavor is similar to eating a cherry cordial, but there is a bread like toasty taste that has to be the Burley and Virginia.  For a full aromatic, I noticed no tongue bite.  The tobacco left no dottle, but there was some moisture in the bowl.  The next bowl of whatever you have in the same pipe may have a ghost of cherry flavor.
How to prepare it?
Aromatic pipe tobacco is very sensitive to preparation.  Take one bowl's worth out of the tin and let it dry in the air for at least half an hour.  When the tobacco is no longer moist/sticky you are ready to pack.  Use a light hand while packing the bowl.  A two step pack is better than a three step pack for this blend.  If it won't stay lit, use a tamper to tighten the pack a bit.  Don't smash it in since it is very difficult to loosen the tobacco again.  You should have no trouble drawing air thru the pipe.  Smoke with a controlled, slow cadence for maximum flavor.

    The tin smell is divine, cherry but not that candy cherry in cheaper grades of tobacco. BRM is a quality tobacco that tastes as good as it’s smell, it’s rich with a hint of spiciness with a bold flavor and balance. It’s not goopy and smokes long and slow. This is my #1 aromatic tobacco.

    I am new to pipe smoking and I got this tobacco based on reviews found online. This is a very enjoyable smoke with a cherry aroma that is not too overwhelming. The tobacco is not very nicotine rich, so I do not get nic-hit when I smoke it. Highly recommend this tobacco if you are looking for a cherry aromatic.

    This is a great aromatic if you want a very sweet one. Let it sit out for 20 min before smoking so it isn’t too wet when you smoke. It’s among my favorites and will stay in my rotation!

    I liked this immediately upon first try. One has to like aromatics to appreciate this, as the cherry is quite strong. Yet, it doesn't taste humectant-like at all. Upon opening the tin, the aroma was natural and a pleasant surprise even before lighting.

    Dammit Jim I’m a smoker not a reviewer! I understand why this is always out of stock.
