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.

Great evening bowl!
I mean, cut off a bit, rub it out and pack your bowl carefully. Smoke this slowly and it will last the evening. This can be a very complex smoking experience if you let it. I choose to just enjoy, letting all the flavors come to me. I think newer smokers may find this tobacco intimidating. Please, don't. This is a wonderful smoking experience.

Smooth smoke that makes you crave bbq, made to take things slowly
I now know why this is often out of stock. definitely had a "what the hell do i do with this???" moment in preparing. As one end was semi frayed i followed the suggestion and left it in fairly large single leaf shreds. Tin note was serious leather and spice notes, made me want bbq. Smoking it i was cautious as i heard it can be a wild one. Once i got it lit, i was surprised on how smooth it was with luxurious smoke and warm melty leather flavor with a hint of smokiness. It was a larger meerschaum bowl, and i should note i used Nording keystones for a filter. i tried adding another, plug piece ( like a 1/8th") and as i tried to get a charring light, a lightbulb went off letting me know i reached a stopping point, as i had a bowl of HH Burley flake in the morning. Very sneaky. Warhorse i believe is more stout of a blend, this is more relaxing but with a behind the scenes punch. This was made for lunting, or contemplation and taking a moment to slow down in a fast world
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.
