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.

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.
