No. 7 Shag has been popular with pipe smokers all over the U.K and around the world for decades. A beautiful blend of dark fired and flue cured Virginias. An earthy and leathery tobacco, with plenty of body to match. The blend for No. 7 Shag features as the basis for a number of scented Lakeland blends, in mixture and flake format.

Gawith Hogarth-No.7 Shag Unscented.

Sadly mine was soaked on arrival: long airing. But after a massive drying time it's a good smoke: basic, but good.

It's a blend where there's not too much to say about the flavour: some fire cured smoke and a touch of citrus and grass. Due to the cut it can burn fast if strained and a little hot; so take it easy. This would be archetypal for someone looking to switch from cigarettes to a pipe.

Mild to medium nicotine with a pleasant room-note:

Three stars.

No. 7 Shag Unscented is the milquetoast of the GH& Co shags. It's great quality using the same tobaccos as other GH shags, The problem with it is that it is just bland. This might be just the thing for new pipe smokers seeking something mild but for those of us used to Kendals Dark or Dark Birds Eye, this is far too weak.
