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 Sliced Black Rum Twist. The moment I open this and take a whiff I can straight away ascertain the rum is not harsh: quite gentle"! To be fair, it is a little too dry, not brittle, just a touch dehydrated. Lighting this up is a doddle, and once lit it burns even, steady and consistently, leaving a pure white ash. The flavour is definitely rum, however it's a very delicate addition, it acts more like a support act to the fabulous Virginia taste. The smoke can be inhaled with ease but be warned, it gives an almost lethal nicotine kick: lethal! The room note is not great, quite a standard Virginia one with a sweetness to it, but it is a bit too heavy for me. I can sum this blend up in a few words: very strong and not for the faint hearted!
