Cherry Ambrosia is wonderful: very smooth and very enjoyable with a great aroma.
Well I have been on the hunt for a nice strong cherry flavored aromatic. I love MB’s Vanilla Flake, so I thought I would try their Ambrosia line. This tin can in a perfect moisture level and a tad on the dry side. Loaded the pipe right from the tin. Bang! Cherry smack to the mouth! Very sweet and strong Cherry flavor. I was impressed. Smoked cool and no tongue bite. Flavor lasted the whole way down the smoke. I thought I had found my new favorite cherry aromatic, but I think I smoked so much of it, my brain kicked my palette to the curb. Unfortunately I lost taste one evening half way into a bowl. I was really bummed out. Switched over to English for about a week and then came back to see if I could pick up the CA and have the flavor experience I first had.. unfortunately that didn’t happen. I could taste it, but not nearly as intense and pleasurable as the first time. I don’t know if it’s me (I tend to think), or if it’s the tobacco. I have read other reviews where others say they have no taste of the sweet cherries at all or are minimal at best. I’ll have to take a longer break and come back to this blend in a few months to see if there is any change. Hopefully it’s my brain and that I just overloaded my taste center! I would recommend trying it, just don’t go ballistic with it, I would say!
It's my new go to
I love this flavor. Goes great in the pipe. Smells amazing.
As a new piper I was expecting more from my first real tin of aromatic tobacco. It required considerably less drying time than my other locally bought blends. There was a good initial flavor that quickly evaporated followed by occasionally good hints throughout the rest of the bowl, but not the smoking experience aromatics seem to be hyped up to be. Still, I would but it again.
Smell subtitle, but don't taste really cherry, don't taste cherry. Not the best I tried as cherry tobacco. Won't buy again.
Very mellow and easy on the pallet. Has a nice appealing aroma and stays lit with consistent tamping.
Great cherry blend with a very pleasant aroma. Cherry flavor is there But I will say it’s a bit fainter than I would like it to be. Other than that it’s well priced and a smooth smoke.
O.K. I was a cigar smoker 1st. This tobacco has the smoothest, complex flavor, that 1/2 way through the bowl I could have sworn it was a Fine cigar! Great for a transition tobacco(and without any tongue bite!) from cigars/ cigs or just starting into pipes. 1/5 strength is accurate.
