Gawith Hoggarth - Sliced Brown Bogie.

High nicotine content? You're not kidding, I think this will satisfy the toughest of smokers! Now, on to the rest of the review. The blend contains quite a few small coins so they need a slight rub prior to smoking. It's of a great amount of hydration so it can be rubbed and smoked right away. The smell from the mix has Virginia in the lead but also there's a musky/smokiness there as well. It lights up well and straight away it begins to leave behind an arctic white ash. As I said, nicotine content is high in this one, there's not really anymore to say about that! The smoke can become too warm if it's strained but seeing as there is a very high volume of nicotine and a full taste there doesn't seem to be any reason for doing so. I notice that it does need quite a few re-lights but providing the burn is well looked after it produces a large quantity of smoke. I won't hide the fact that this won't suit everyone, it has a lot of points that will suit the more 'hardened' of smokers.

I wouldn't refer to myself, by any means, as a hardened smoker but I really enjoy it nonetheless! Four stars.
