Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Brown Plug

Notes: Using the description for the Brown Unscented from this website: As with Bright CR Flake, this is another tobacco that devises its flavour simply from the choice of leaf in the blend, and has no additional casings or flavours to enhance the smoke. (u/s - stands for unscented) 83.5% blended Virginias are combined with a relatively high (for English Blends at any rate) proportion of Malawi burley, 12.5%, to give flavour and depth to the smoke, and the addition of just 4% Malawi dark fired leaf is sufficient to combat the typical sharpness of the Virginia leaf resulting in a rounded medium strength smoke.

Dec 26, 2015 Medium Extremely Mild Medium to Full Tolerable
The Virginias have a deep dark fruit sweet taste, and is boldly earthy a possesses a little herbal floralness with minor grass notes as the dominant component. The burleys are very nutty with a little cocoa, a bit of earth, and a hint of molasses in a support role. You’ll notice it most of the time, but it never takes a lead. The sweetness of the tobaccos have a fermented taste due to the pressing of the plug. The Lakeland essence is very lightly present, and loses most of its strength before much time passes. Lakeland is not added, but it’s in the atmosphere in the factory, so it makes its way into the plug. It may need a little dry time as well as a little time to prepare, but no matter how you do it, it burns slow with a deep, rich, consistent flavor. Requires some relights, and may take a little work to smoke it to ash. Doesn’t leave much moisture in the bowl. The nic-hit is medium, and it won't bite. Has a lingering after taste, and the room note has some strength.
