Manufactured by spinning tobacco dark fired leaves into a rope. The Pig Tail is more widely used as a chewing tobacco although can still be smoked if preferred.
The pouch aroma is both oily and spicy. Due to the tiny diameter of the twist, usually cut into so many little discs in order to chew or smoke.
Once you cut them you see a very deep reddish brown colour, especially under direct light. It is truly a strong tobacco. The taste settles down gradually and becomes increasingly sweet, spicy, and creamy.

This comes in a small foil bag, and is easy to cut off a piece of the narrow rope and unravel into bits of leaf that pack easily. There is just a hint of sweetness, especially in the aftertaste. It takes a light well (at least when separated into leaves) and doesn't burn as slowly as most ropes.
