Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Rum and Maple.

It's a very coarsely broken flake, a little darker than medium brown and arrived at a good hydration to smoke straight away. Mind, I suspect it wouldn't cellar brilliantly as there was no rush of air when I prized off the lid: faulty seal.

From start to finish the maple leads in the flavour, monopolizing the smoke for the final third of a bowl. The rum seems to have been applied lighter, and lacks much alcoholic sharpness but gives lots of molasses sweetness. The tobacco has quite a laid back flavour: honey and grass. The bad news, for me, is the tongue bite, unless it's sipped tentatively it's a killer. It burns slowly at a medium temperature, but can become too warm under pressure.

Nicotine: mild to medium. Room-note: pleasant.

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co Rum and Maple? Not a bad tobacco but a bit boring and too snappy with tongue bite for any higher than two stars:

Somewhat recommended.

Mild Mild Very Mild Unnoticeable

Like smoking fresh air, all I got was a mild ash tray taste. Considering it is by one of my favourite tobacco producers I was very shocked at the lack of taste. I normally smoke Royal Yacht, Night Cap, and Ennerdale Flake.

Pipe Used: Corn cob, Savinelli.

Age When Smoked: Tin fresh

Medium Very Mild Very Mild Pleasant

As with all GH tobaccos I have tried so far, this needs a good drying out before use. A good rough flake that allows you to get the consistency you need.

The flavour is very subtle and sweet. This is one of those tobaccos with a room note that is barely noticeable. Think of Gold Block but with a proper nicotine content. Gentle but still satisfying.

i bought a 50g tin of this tobacco not knowing it was a broken flake,as i never read the tin label,so once i opened it i was a little surprised as to what i found but...once i rubbed it out and had a couple of bowels i quite like it..the tin aroma is quite nice.and the tobacco burns nicely,the aroma of the burning tobacco is nice.its a little strong but that’s fine by me as i like strong tobacco's,
