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.

Flavored with Rum.

Strong Mild to Medium Full Tolerable

As this is a thinner version of Rum Twist Unsliced Rope, my review is fairly similar with a couple differences. The rope is moist and pliable and easily cut into coins, bits and/or shreds if you prefer. The dark fired and air tired tobaccos are boldly earthy, with a deep dark fruitiness, some citrus, and a minor grass, spice and acidic note. The rum topping has a sweetly deep character, and though it does sublimate the power of the tobaccos a little, there's plenty of their intrinsic strength for your taste buds. Has a medium to full nic-hit; perhaps a tad more than the thicker version does, as well as a slightly rougher edge at times. It requires a little dry time, but no matter how you prepare it (unless you dry it to a crisp, which I do not recommend), it burns slow and clean with a consistent flavor to the finish. No harsh or dull spots, and won’t bite. It leaves some moisture in the bowl, and only leaves dottle for a wet smoker. If you leave it fairly moist, you will need to stir up the tobacco a time or two. The after taste pleasantly lingers, but the room note is stronger. Not an all day smoke.

Strong Mild Medium to Full Pleasant

This comes in two sizes of rope, narrow guage and medium; this note is from a medium sample. The N is strong, but it doesn't seem quite as strong as the GH ropes made primarily for smoking. The smoke seems a bit rougher than regular GH ropes, but is still pleasant and very smokable. The rum is present, and adds to the complexity, as the underlying tobacco is very straight forward. The rope is easy to cut up with scissors and then to rub out. Fans of other GH ropes should give it a try. I found it a slightly more enjoyable smoke than the Sweet Coffee version of the same pigtail.
