Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Kendal Gold Rum.

I've reviewed a few of the new flavoured Kendal Golds over the past month, and here's the rum flavoured version:

Unlike a few of the others which were fairly coarse for a shag this is uniformly presented. There's no chunkier bits, it's all a medium shag cut blend. The nose from the pouch is aromatic, but a little closer to molasses than rum. This one appears slightly moist.

Again, like the pouch note, the smoke has more of a molasses taste than rum; there's no sharpness to suggest alcohol. The tobacco offers little to shout about: a basic Virginia flavour. When I pull on my pipe firmly I get a tiny amount of tongue bite, so for optimum enjoyment I sip it in a more delicate fashion. There's no problem with temperature, and as long as it's packed right the burn's decent enough.

The room-note: pleasant. The nicotine: mild to medium.

So, this isn't anything fabulous, but it's still a good smoke:

Recommended.
