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 is 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 !
