Gawith Hoggarth Plum and Rum . The unlit mix is very even in its sizes , most of the pieces are about 3 quarters of a c.m long and considering this is an Aromatic there is not a strong aroma of additives coming from the mix , a more delicate Fruit and Rum touch which makes a nice change as a lot of Aro's have an immense smell to them . It is of a superb moistness and is ready to smoke right from the start . This one lights superbly and gives a really constant/steady burn which doesn't keep going out unless you leave it without attention for too long . The flavour of the smoke is delicious , just like the unlit aroma the Rum and Plum taste is not like a smack in the face but more of a very gentle note which leaves plenty of room for the Virginia to be appreciated without being totally masked . Vitamin N is spot on , neither too strong nor too light and it is a complete doddle to inhale if you choose to . Tongue bite does not happen unless I really strain hard and even then it is quite minor . The room note is a fairly standard Virginia one with a slight Fruitiness there as well . This is a very pleasing "delicate" Aromatic , due to the lighter aspect of it the pipe is not left saturated with a Plum and Rum flavour and also it would make a great starter to Aromatics as it is not overly flavoured or it would suit someone who likes a milder Aromatic .
