Manufactured by spinning tobacco dark fired leaves into a rope. The Pig Tail is more widely used as a chewing tobacco although can still be smoked if preferred.

The pouch aroma is both oily and spicy. Due to the tiny diameter of the twist, usually cut into so many little discs in order to chew or smoke.

Once you cut them you see a very deep reddish brown colour, especially under direct light. It is truly a strong tobacco. The taste settles down gradually and becomes increasingly sweet, spicy, and creamy.

Flavored with Coffee.

Strong Mild to Medium Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

The dark fired and air cured tobaccos are boldly earthy, with a deep dark fruitiness, some citrus, and a minor grass, spice and acidic note. The coffee topping has a sweet, slightly bitter quality, and lightly tones down the tobaccos. Has a medium to full nic-hit. Won’t bite, but can present a harsh note and a couple rough edges. It requires a little dry time, but no matter how you prepare it, it burns slow and clean with a consistent flavor to the finish. It leaves some moisture in the bowl, and you may need to stir up the tobacco toward the finish. The after taste pleasantly lingers, but the room note is stronger. Not an all day smoke.

Strong Mild Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

This comes in two sizes of rope, narrow guage and medium; this note is from a medium sample. The N is strong, but it doesn't seem quite as strong as the GH ropes made primarily for smoking. The smoke seems a bit rougher than regular GH ropes, but is still pleasant and very smokable. The coffee is lightly present, and adds to the complexity, as the underlying tobacco is very straight forward. The rope is easy to cut up with scissors and then to rub out. Fans of other GH ropes should give it a try. Since I know there are many tobaccos out there I would rate a 4, the question arises would I rebuy this particular tobacco, assuming my tastes don't change much more. In this case, the answer is not while I can get the sweet rum version.
