I like it. I need to smoke it one more time before I can give my honest assessment because that sample sat out for nearly 6 hours. It has some of the same cherry flavor as Top Black plus vanilla cream, but because it's not cooked black like Top there is still some Gawith flake flavor shining through. I could taste the underlying Virginia's and it had a little more heat to it, but not more than I would expect from a Gawith straight Virginia. Kendal(Top) Black Cherry was my favorite, and it does seem to have the strongest Cherry flavor, but right now it seems like CCF gets the edge for tasting more like a non-floral cherry Lakeland flake.
Gawith Hoggarth Cherry Vanilla is my favourite but I like the Black Cherry as well. One pipe smoking re-enactor I met at Bolsover Castle had some Captain Black Cherry he'd brought back from America and he shared it with me!
