Strong Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant

I am rather confused and do not share the enthusiasm of previous rewievers. In the tin there is a slight aroma of honey behind the tobacco. A rather high strength regarding the content of nicotina but I failed to grasp any flavouring mentionned on the tin or in previous reviews. Yes, a nice smoke but nothing much to say about it. I would not have to go chasing any other tin...

Sam Gawith 2014 Limited edition . Firstly , the aroma from this is an incredible one , you get a pleasant tobacco note with a great sweet/honey addition whilst in the background a great Nutty quality resides . The content would appear to be mostly Virginia with only a small proportion of the Black Cavendish and contrary to what I usually notice with Sam Gawith this ones moisture amount is ace ! Once lit , which it does easily , I can quickly gather that this meets with my high Sam Gawith expectations ! The speed of the burn is exemplary , a speed that allows plenty of time to savour , yet does not become unlit easily . Now the taste , impeccable , the tobacco flavour is mainly Virginia with only a small amount of credence going to the Black Cav' , but it is a balance that works well along side with the added components which I shall now address ! The additives are not at all strong or harsh , the Honey seems to be the more dominant of them all , but not sickly or too false in any way , to be fair a very true Honey taste . Of all the additives I would say that the Hazelnuts are the least dominant , you can detect them but they do require a little amount of identifying . With hand on heart I can say "at no point did this one bite" . Nicotine now , perfect , think Squadron Leader . Another high mark for this is the room note , like the taste it is mainly Virginia but it does have a sweetness in it also making it less offensive . Talking of "less offensive" I would like to point out that another contributing factor to how in-offensive I found it was that this is a very light Smoke in the atmosphere , so the room does not resemble "fog" . To sum up I would say this is a VERY DELICATE aromatic ... superb !!

Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

A generous looking tin full-very fluffy-nice familair room note expected upon opening. Lights well. It is everything that both Gold Block and Clan should be keeping an eye of respect to , and take notes from.

Medium to Strong Extremely Mild Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

I smoked it fresh one morning with a cup of coffee on a perfect summer morning. It has a very nice tin note (tho it is one of those baggie in a tin tobaccos, so I jarred mine right away), sweet hazel nutty aroma. Fluffy, ribbon cut Virginias, and a little black cavendish. Beautiful looking tobacco. Lit really nicely, and stayed lit. I hadn't eaten yet, and I'm a nicotine lightweight, so I smoked half a bowl first, and took a break because I may have started to feel slightly dizzy. Coming back to it a little later, it starts off a little bit on the bitter side. I am still not the biggest fan of straight virginia, so the black cavendish and light topping is a nice touch for me. Smokes to a really fine white ash. On the pricey side, but I guess that's what you get with Limited Edition blends!
