    Well in that case, I like think Jack nailed it. Cherry smells like a fine pipe tobacco when burning......definitely a wonderfully aromatic wood.

    You had me stumped with the cigar thing.......;lol

    That pic is newly posted. Didn't have that to go by when the rest of us was guessing. I am not real sure what kind of wood that pic is showing.

    Smell described sounds to me like cherry but the picture is not cherry. Walnut perhaps?

    Ha ha - I think you're right! And I don't know if it's humanly possible to confuse the smell of black locust and cherry!
