This is a full bodied, full strength tobacco made from 100% Dark-Fired Kentucky tobacco which gives it a real characteristic Kentucky flavour.

Loose packaged weighed to order.

Notes: this is not the Kendal Kentucky,I found it only at mysmokingshop.co.uk in the 'shag' section.

Medium to Strong Medium Medium to Full Pleasant

somehow hard to find, one of the best Kentucky I tried, strong, tasty as a Kentucky tobacco should be, very nice amount of nicotine, sometimes it provides an always welcome Lakeland note (I said Lakeland, not soapy).the cut is very easy to pack and to keep lit, humidity is perfect, no need to dry. it's like the cultured, smart and rich cousin of the Kendal Kentucky.

Gawith Hoggarth - Dark Kentucky.

I lit this today as my morning smoke and it ticks every box I would think most pipers require for their first smoke of the day!

It's a fairly dark, shag cut, and the build makes for easy and quick packing whilst struggling to concentrate due to still waking up! Because it's well hydrated that means it doesn't hold the smoker up trying to get it lit, so that's handy in the mornings. And then on to the smoke: this has a very full taste, and a large dose of nicotine; those, I guess, would score more points in the morning, for most folks! The burn's brilliant, this means there's no procrastination with the smoke; it just goes steady. The flavour's mainly Kentucky: fiery, nutty, slightly caustic, but there's also a little Lakeland too.

It's a little headstrong for me in the nicotine department but still worth four stars:

Highly recommended.
