|Tobacco||Dark Fired Kentucky, Virginia|
|Room Note||4 - Distinct|
Samuel Gawith Brown No. 4 Kendal Twist is a hearty, robust rope tobacco made with Virginias and dark-fired leaf. Because S.G.'s brown ropes are not stoved, the flavor might tend to be a bit lighter than the black ropes, more of the strength remains intact. This is a flavorful smoke, best reserved for after a meal.
Wonderful full bodied smoke. Very heavy cigar like flavor. Room note is that of a cigar. This tobacco is best enjoyed when you want the heaviest of flavors. It is not a complex taste. I first bought this a few years ago when I started smoking a pipe, I found it a challenge to smoke. It required much time in my cellar before smoking. Slice and rub out. I find half a bowl is more than enough to satisfy my want for a smoke. Nicotine kick is very high and slowly ramps up. I would not smoke this on an empty stomach. Love this rope but it needs time to air and requires multiple relights during the smoke unless you are very diligent removing the ash, even then I found I must relight as I smoke through the layers in the bowl.
