Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Black Irish X

Product Number: 005-001-0005

All Gawith & Hoggarth twist tobacco varieties are manufactured by the same spinning process using dark fired wrapper leaves. The filler for Black Irish X is predominantly dark fired leaf with the addition of a small percentage of dark air cured Indian leaf. They are therefore strong tobaccos. Black Twist, because the cooking process removes some of the stronger tar and nicotine elements, provides a mellower smoke than the brown twist.

It tastes of burnt rubber, charred meat, with a sprinkle of leather boot. The bag note is particular. I enjoy it.
Like burnt BBQ tips

Had to look up at first how to cut properly and rub out but after that I was good to go and it smoked perfectly fine and was very delicious

This is a frustrating tobacco— difficult to light and keep lit even when cut, rubbed out, and desiccated beyond all reason; the first light stings your nostrils like getting water up your nose at the public swimming pool; and then the flavor... whoa.... Read More

I got this due to negligence on my part, after really enjoying Brown Irish X. This proved to be a happy accident, as I enjoy this one, though not in the same way. The taste of this tobacco is reminiscent of licking one's fingers after eating a piec... Read More

Black twist was the first GH twist tobacco that I smoked, and I've had some in a jar for several months now. Smooth, mellowed dark fired and Indian air cured flavors that in my opinion are much less pronounced than the brown variety. There's an arom... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Black Irish X Bulk
Perhaps I was a bit let down since I bought it to hold me over until Happy Bogey became available. Still, it very good. It's not as strong or as flavorful but it's still potent and (as stated) has a nice meaty flavor. I prefer the twist since I tr... Read More
Nothing But Barbecue

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Black Irish X Bulk
There's an unmistakeable flavor of barbecue here. Nothing like barbecue sauce, not exactly meat or char. I'm not in love with this tobacco, the Brown Bogie rope is much better, but I'm sure there will be times when it'll end up back in my pipe. Quali... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Black Irish X Bulk
The smell of this tobacco is very good straight from the bag. It is VERY moist - so I recommend drying what you want to smoke ahead of time, otherwise you face a challenge of lighting and a possibility of running too hot in the pipe. All that said t... Read More

I received my order of Black Irish Twist yesterday. After work, I cut some coins and rubbed out a bowlful for my small SMS Meerschaum, taking into considertion what others have said about this tobacco. My wife found the room note somewhat objection... Read More

After finishing off a bag of sliced black twist, I knew I had to try the unsliced. I did the same thing that I 've learned to do with other twists; slice off a bit and put it in the coffee grinder (call me lazy). This is the perfect smoke on those ... Read More

So first impression was what in gods name have I done. Not appealing to look at at all. Looks like a bag of poop to be honest. I cut it into thick coins again confounded by the bazaar texture ( that of a wet cigar). Once broken up and packed I was ag... Read More

I like English blends and I wanted to branch out and try a twist tobacco, so I got an ounce of this Black Irish X. I cut a few slices off the rope, rubbed it out, and let it dry for about an hour before smoking it in a corn cob. I didn't have too m... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Black Irish X Bulk
The taste of the tobacco is rather unique. While it sounds disgusting, there's something about it that honestly smells and tastes like an over-cooked steak. Smokes well, though, and has a good nicotine kick. I prefer the brown, as its scent isn't nea... Read More
