Gawith Hoggarth Dark Honeydew. The unlit mix is very uniform in the sizes of pieces, all about 3 quarters of a centimetre in length and predominantly a medium brown colour. It gives off quite an incongruous aroma pre-light, it has an almost musty note to it! It lights up with brilliance and burns very evenly leaving a totally grey ash. The flavour of the smoke I find to be fairly unique, you get a good balance of Virginia to Burley with a sweetness emanating from the toppings but also (as with the unlit aroma) there's a touch of a certain mustiness there , not too heavy as to take over and ruin the blend but just enough to add a great embellishment to it. Vitamin N is spot on, it doesn't blow your mind into spinning around or disappoint with the lack of it. The room note is incredible with Honeydew, it gives off antiquity and you could imagine this being the eminent smell of Sherlock Holmes's study! Even though this is an aromatic in name it creates no cake or gurgle in the bowl as some aro's can. If you favour something a little different from the crowd with a superb room note then this is a blend for you!
