Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Kendal Banana.
A fine, light brown shag. There's nothing equivocal about the pouch-note: BANANA'S!! Moisture's good, making it easy to light.
I like the smoke a lot more than I thought I would: It's of a cool temperature, gives a good burn, doesn't bite, and tastes like a nice milkshake! The bananas are easy to identify in the smoke, but lack the 'children's cough medicine' trait that I've found in a few banana aromatics. The bananas are flavoursome and creamy, not false and sickly. Although I get no falseness from the fruit, it still masks most of the tobacco character.
The nicotine's just above mild, and the room-note? I was sat in on my computer smoking my pipe when my wife yelled through "what's that I can smell? It's lovely, you can smoke that anywhere you want in the house"! Enough said:
Pipe Used: Porsche P'3613
