Gawith & Hoggarth Black Irish X Unsliced

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Black Irish X is similar to the Brown Irish X, but it undergoes a cooking process, which smooths out the tobacco and reduces its power a bit. It's also a bit more aromatic than the Brown. Made mostly of dark-fired leaf with some dark air-cured, this is not a tobacco for the timid. Ideal in the evening after a nice meal, G&H Black Irish X is the best way to cap off a long day.

A Natural Sweetness that Lures You..
Great tobacco taste with a touch of natural sweetness that lures you into thinking, "it's not over yet." And it certainly is not. "Black Irish X Unsliced" completely satisfied my tobacco craving of that moment. I almost always cut a twist into 3/16 inch cubes, unless it is a little dry, then a little larger. This was moist so I stayed with the tried and true, and it was just right. Really good smoke. I must say, however, I did not care for it as a chew. Slightly bitter.

Enjoy this tobacco
Has slightly different taste from Black XX, has a mild sweetness to it. I enjoy the stronger tobacco's and this one is one I've added into my rotation.

Confused the customs agent when brought into Canada..very intense but smoked well. Definitely a must to peg the extreme end of your collection.

Delicious and acquired BIX!
New to pipe smoking , but smoked cigarettes for many years before walking away. X is a great tobacco not for the timid. You can taste their commitment in every nutty grilled steak draw! One of the few I've tried worth recommending !

Small bowls are best in this case...
A strong tobacco, 8/10 in comparison to Happy Bogie. A delightfully pungent room note that is best enjoyed in your own company. Tastes like a well seared steak and never lets up on flavor. I enjoy buying an ounce here and there.

Better than The Shire!
This is not for the weak of sauce. This is tobacco good and proper. If you don't like strong tobacco flavor and a good nicotine kick, then you should avoid it like a hobbit avoids Azog the Defiler. Personally I think it's great between 2nd Breakfast and Elevenses.

Bold English Style Pipe Tobacco
I purchased this tobacco because Gawith 1792 is not available. I am pleased with the bold flavor. It is a satisfying smoke and I am glad I discovered it, although I prefer the flavor of 1792, which is a little smoother and has more of a "bite". I have to say that I will buy it again whenever it becomes available.

Official tobacco of Mordor.
This is a bad tasting tobacco. I am a "mature smoker". But this stuff is hard to stomach. Like an old steak grilled over burning tires. Had to toss it.

Well Worth It....
Don't let the looks fool you. If you're not use to strong tobaccos go easy with this one. Its smooth and tasty, but will kick you in the gut. Very good after a heavy meal and a beer. Recommend this to try if you enjoy "Heavy" englishes. Is really good blended w/ a straight burly such as Prince Albert.

Love this stuff!
Yes, it takes a little time to prepare it, but worth the effort. No Bite,not the kick of Brown Bogey, but very good. Get it while you still can. The Weez...
Customer Testimonials
Once I figured out how to slice it up and the best way to pack the bowl I really enjoy this tobacco. Not any one overpowering flavor, just good, bold, tobacco taste. It is high in nicotine and has a very strong room note.
Powerful. Leather, earth. sliced a couple coins, rubbed it and let it dry for a few hours. still hard to keep lit. i could feel this one in my stomach, it is flavorful but intimidating and high in nicotine. It was quite smooth though.
Takes a little prep time to cut off a piece and break it up, but I guess that's all part of the experience. This has a full, earthy kind of taste. I found it robust, yet smooth. The room note has a camp fire aroma to it. It got stronger towards the bottom of the bowl, but not overpowering. It took quite a few relights throughout the bowl, but a little drying time would probably fix that. I puffed like hell, but it didn't bite. It burned for a long time, which I thought was a plus. Will be trying this one with a strong cup of Irish tea.
This is a nice full flavored blend. It is not for the week of heart.
