I have to echo the previous review by PiperAtTheGatesofDawn; This is an extremely mild, almost flat oriental tobacco for blending that is probably best suited for diluting a heavier blend. By itself in the pouch it has mild notes of chocolate, acetic tang and mild dutch cigar tobacco. While smoking I found that the mild dutch cigar character barely makes itself noticed in an otherwise more so neutral smoke. It's almost like a very midly cased burley but I don't detect any casing, it's just that the tobacco has sufficient body in and of itself. I suppose this is suited for diluting an english blend that is either too heavy in latakia or having a virgina base a little sharp on the tongue.

Sam Gawith: R.C. Turkish

Good tobacco and high qality product as would be expected from Sam Gawith. Room Note is almost absent as far as I can tell. Taste? Wellllll there wasn't that much of that.

Bought this more on a whim and as a alternative to the lack of anything else I was used to smoking. I am a fan of Sam Gawith (with the exception of the heavily-flavored offerings).That was the point of ordering this blend. What to say? There really isn't much to this tobacco as far as taste, body and aroma. I am aware that it is basically a blending tobacco and a mild one besides and I suppose that that is it's main function and usage. It is almost not worth smoking alone. I suppose it could be used to tone down an over-exuberent or heavy blend but it is bland and near tasteless alone.The feeling of "why did I go to the trouble of loading my pipe?" is about all that can be expected from a solo flight with this tobacco.

Undoubtedly good tobacco for what it does. I never tried any blending experiments with this so I can't comment on that aspect of it either. By the time I was about halfway through my ration of this my preferred tobacco came available. So now it just sits there with a lonely look on it's face. oh well!

Recommended? Not reall strongly except as a possible blender.
