Gawith Hoggarth - Kendal Gold Toffee.
The contents of the pouch are of the standard I'd expect for something in the Kendal Gold series: sort of like a dichotomy between cigarette and pipe tobacco: a little thinner than usual for a pipe blend, yet quite thick for a cigarette tobacco. It's perfectly hydrated with a fairly emphatic smell of toffee; that's much stronger than it is in the the smoke.
The flavour in the smoke seems a little ambiguous: it could be toffee, could be honey, could be maple, or it could be molasses; it seems harder to identify as it's not too strong in the flavour profile neither: mild, and for it to become anywhere near medium it takes a big push. I'm also dissatisfied by the temperature, the burn, and the tongue bite: it's too hot, burns quick, and bites hard.
This isn't anything disgusting, but nor is it brilliant:
