Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Revor Plug

A blend of flue and fire cured tobaccos pressed and baked into a glossy black bar. Favoured by experienced pipesmokers who demand a strong cool satisfying smoke.
Notes: Revor Plug was originally an own label product made in the SCWS (Scottish Cooperative Wholesale Society ) factory in Glasgow, and sold only through Scottish Cooperative stores. Production was moved to the CWS (Cooperative Wholesale Society) factory in Manchester, and when the CWS stopped tobacco manufacture it was taken over by Manchester Tobacco. MT was taken over in it's turn by Japan Tobacco who eventually closed their manufacturing operations in the UK in the 2000s. Before this happened though production of Revor had been moved to GH in Kendal.

It must be me, all the other reviews for this are exuberant, I'm not, not the slightest. I found and still do after three bars of the stuff that it's a mediocre smoke, good for when I'm working, with its lack of relights, but not a WOW factor to be seen. Maybe I expect more from a toby with such reviews, or maybe you lot need new taste buds, something doesn't gel. I bought 3 bars over time and yes, I'll smoke it but it simply does not make me sit up. Pleasant enough to cart around in the shop and hack a chunk off for a smoke but nothing to perch on the porch watching the sunset with. Its useful for summer months in that it doesn't appear to warm the bowl, but not so good with cold hands weather. I'd allow this a 2.5 if I could. Ease of smoking , prep, lighting can't be faulted but flavour and taste nah, lacking for me. Nicotine is fine tho' not wondrous, I haven't seen any heavier regrowth of chest hair either. No thud, no kick. All day work toby for me.
Pipe Used: Cobs, B10, 999, Sav320, whatever I have to hand.
