A blend of Indian dark air cured Virginia is blended with other Virginias to give a punchy, powerful smoke. After the tobacco is rolled, it's soaked in rum and inverted sugars.

Strong Medium Full Pleasant to Tolerable

The strong, earthy Virginias have a bit of dark fruit, a light citrus and vegetative, floral grass, some wood, and a few cigar notes. The deep, sweet rum topping and sugars tone down the tobaccos just a mite, and hold on to the finish. The nic-hit is a little past medium. Won’t bite or get harsh, but has a minor rough edge at times. No matter how you prepare it, it will burn slow, cool, and clean with mostly consistent flavor. Leaves a little moisture in the bowl, and needs a fair number of relights. Has a pleasant and lingering after taste and room note. Not an all day smoke.

Very Strong Medium Full Pleasant

Gawith Hoggarth-Brown Twist Sweet Rum. Here we have a very thick rope. I'm talking about two CM across! Sadly it's too damp. It is in need a decent airing prior to smoking it otherwise you will struggle to create a good, consistent and even burn. The rope gives off a strong aroma of rum which is more pre-eminent than in the smokes flavour. It burns well, providing it's been aired right. Actually, I tried a bowl without drying it and it was near impossible to keep lit! The flavour is brilliant. As I said earlier the aroma from the rope has a stronger rum addition but it is still easily recognizable as being present. As it burns I think it's fair to say it leaves the whitest ash behind I have ever seen! The smoke is unimpeachable in the area of bite. I get absolutely zero in the way of tongue hurt! Another good area is the temperature of the smoke. Cool, cool, cool. If you like N then fill your bowl with this. On the other hand though, if you smoke for taste only then walk away from it! As a rule I can't say I normally enjoy alcohol flavoured blends but this however suits me like tailored clothing! Four stars without a doubt.

Strong Very Mild Full Tolerable

Solid and bold flavor when puffing slowly.Strong tobacco and not an all day smoke. Flavoring is very mild and staying in background. Will not bite or harsh. Leaving so moisture in the bowl. Overall very good tobacco and highly recommended at least to try for everybody.
