As the name suggest a mellow cool smoking tobacco blended from old belt air cured Virginia Flake with a very discreet Mahogany flavour but we have had reports of a creamy almond flavour. The flavour is discreet as a background flavour for those who don’t like an overly sweet tobacco but is predominant enough to give a pleasing room note for the non smokers.

GH have now started merchandising this in 50g packs here in the UK. This is predominently air-cured old belt virgnia in flake form. It rubs out easily, holds the charing light although, it's a little high on moisture content and benefits from a little advance drying.

This, I believe, is GH 'Mahogany' (tinned version), but milder and more mellow; the casing however, reminds me of 'Ennerdale' although it's less harsh and less pronounced. There is a wonderful natural sweetness through the smoke and it burns cool with no tongue bite.

As a general rule I do not like heavily cased tobaccos, so 'Ennerdale' is a 'bridge too far for me', but I do like this offering; the casing is a background - you know it's there, but it never steps forward to overpower the smoke - this tobacco would change my mind about cased tobaccos - generally. The room note is the same as 'Mahogany' if not better and it is very pleasant indeed.

There is a creamy nature to the smoke as it develops through the bowl that reminds me a little of MacBaren Navy Flake, but this is a far superior smoke.

Sorry people! I just completed this review only to realise that 'Mahogany' (my comparison reference) is not listed under GH on the website - I will request 'Mahogany' and do a review for cross-reference purposes.
