Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Brown Twist Sliced

All our twist tobacco varieties are manufactured by the same spinning process using dark fired wrapper leaves. The filler is again, predominantly dark fired leaf with the addition of a small percentage of dark air cured Indian leaf. They are therefore strong tobaccos. Same as Black Twist but "the brown form"... comes straight from the spinning machine, instead of undergoing a further process of cooling under pressure to turn it into black tobacco.

Note: This review was based on a 4 bowl sample rather than the usual 1 oz minimum I usually adhere to. Consequently, my review might be pointless, and I'm not sure why I'm even writing it. 🙂

This tobacco tells me that it's not the effort required with ropes that make them unsmokable to me. The concept of a "rubbed out" rope was intriguing and a friend gave me 4 bowls worth to try. Unfortunately, it affected me as the black ropes have. The tobacco just tasted like dirt to me. No depth or complexity, simply a strong tobacco for the sake of strength.

A lot of folks seem to like this and perhaps it requires some time to get used to. For me, there are too many tobaccos that I find wonderful right off the bat to worry much about those that I have to work my way up to even being able to tolerate safely. Go for it - it's all yours! 🙂

This is the sliced form of GH Brown Twist. The strongest tobacco I have ever tried. I don't like this style of tobak, which seems more like stuff you would try once on a dare. Nonetheless, I have had some success mixing a TINY portion of this in with a weak-flavored, good-smelling aromatic for a "crowd pleaser" with a bit of taste.
