    I have been chasing a flavour now for many years. It would be nice if I could give you a point of comparison but I can't. I have gotten whiffs of the smell, or taste that I am searching for in a tobacco called Black Cordial. Someone said it might be Cherry I was after. So I went out last week before I left on my trip and bought a pouch of Brigham Black Cherry and alas it was not the cherry flavour I was looking for. Nearest I could describe it smells rich and just a hint of spicy, but in a good way like a nutmeg. I wish I could better describe it. I remember the scent from my childhood when more people smoked pipes so my next step is to check out some of the old codger blends and see if that helps. Any blenders out there that might be able to assist I am open to suggestions.

    In my opinion, the problem is you are chasing a flavor from a smell you remember. That was the problem with aromatics for me, they smell great for everyone else, but the taste is far from the smell. finding a tobacco that tastes like a scent you remember I would say is edging on impossible.

    MOst of the cherry blends, from what I have heard, do not taste like cherry. It is more aromatic than flavor. There are some out there that are both. Sounds like you are looking for something with cherry and liquor. It is not my area of expertise. I heard Boswell's cherry blend(the name escapes me ATM) is good. Check this thread out for some info, this topic has been discussed before at length: Cherry Blends: The Ultimate Hit and Miss

    If it's a tobacco you remember people smoking many years ago, you might want to look at Paladin Black Cherry - I've never had it, but it's an old standard.
