What is in it?

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.

    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.

    Great all-day smoke. Just an enjoyable smoke. Smooth, no bite. Keep it hydrated in your pouch and you will get ash all the way to the bottom of the bowl.

    This is a fantastic aromatic - the cherry is dark and deep, not cloying and overwhelming. Packs and burns beautifully right out of the tin, and I’ve gotten more compliments on the room note than anything else I’ve ever smoked. Highly recommend, unless you hate aros or cherry.

    Fantastic blend. Cherry is deep and sweet, but not too sweet - it’s “cherry,” not “CHERRY!” I’ve gotten more compliments on the room note of this than any other blend I’ve smoked. While not an “all-day” pipe for me, it’s wonderful after dinner or with a good cup of coffee.
