A my office, during the workday, my default, go to tobacco is cherry cavendish. All the brands of it I’ve tried are excellent, but Lane’s Smoker’s Pride is my favorite.

Yes, Cult Blood Red Moon might be a little bit better than Smoker’s Pride Cherry Cavendish, but not by much, and maybe most of that enjoyment comes from opening those beautiful little round cans that cost about $15, which is more than a 12 ounce bag of Smoker’s Pride.

Cherry cavendish is more or less, the same regardless of who made it.

It tastes wonderful, smells even better in the room, it’s sweet as cotton candy, and it’s mild and never beats you up smoking it.

I read where the do gooders are after flavored tobaccos.

Let’s hope they don’t outlaw cherry cavendish soon.:)

I always wanted to find and enjoy a cherry blend but stopped trying ages ago, some bite... others don't taste like tobacco. And now flavored tobacco is illegal to sell in my state.

Out of curiosity, even Prince Albert, Velvet, Carter Hall and SWR have a little added flavorings. They aren’t straight burley.

How do the do gooders deal with codger burleys?

I don't know, I've not tried to purchase those blends. I expect that enforcement is modest and perhaps only blends that clearly indicate a flavoring aspect are held back by retailers for in-state sales. But again....I'm not certain.

Ken Byron has a Sakura blend every once in a while, if you enjoy a cherry aromatic, it's definitely worth a try.

A lot of states are banning flavored tobaccos but this is mostly as a reaction to vape/vape products targeting children.

Like the Cult, also really like Wilke’s version.
I'll second the vote for Wilke Cherry Cavendish. For me it's the best of the genre. If you find Wilke to be too pricey at $64 /lb you can try Lane limited TK6 which is similar but almost 1/2 the price at Smoking pipes.com ($36/lb)
