Manufactured by spinning dark fired leaves into a rope. Black Bogie rather than Brown Bogie which makes it milder with a smokey aroma, is a true old fashioned stout smoke, perfect, with a good strength more suited for the experienced pipe smoker .

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Sliced Black Rum Twist.

A review I first posted years ago but vehemently disagreed with. So, take two:

The twist has been very well sliced, to the point where the contents of the pouch resemble thick, black, ribbons. The nose is mildly aromatic and the moisture's good.

SBRT lights easily, and then the burn's excellent throughout, producing a thick, cool, smoke and finishes with a light grey ash. Because of the smoke's thickness I advise an open window. For the first quarter the rum gives a molasses sweetness, yet very little actual alcohol; unless retro-haled. As the bowl progresses the rum increases in strength. The dark fired Virginia accounts for the leading flavour, but the smoke's given a touch of freshness by a smattering of air cured Virginia. Generically speaking, this is quite a powerful smoke.

Nicotine: strong. Room-note: tolerable to strong.

I couldn't have this as a go-to, but the quality's irrefutable. Four stars:

Highly recommended.
