Another Great Rope Tobacco
July 05, 2017
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
I let this age almost a year and it did fantastic. Still moist in my jar and smelling like the deep woods after a shower - pure tobacco aroma. I sliced off several chunks using my cigar cutter, separated the leaves and let it set for about 10 minut... Read More
Potent but Enjoyable

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
Without a doubt, this is some strong tobacco. Strong in flavor and very strong in the nic department. If you're looking for a very strong (nic) tobacco and aren't too concerned about flavor or room note, this is the one for you. The rope is a fairl... Read More

Absolutely my All-Time favorite! Easily and pleasantly enjoyed anytime of day or night. When I place in long-term storage I coil it in tall mason jars leaving a center hole that I pack tight with Gawith Hoggarth Latakia to fill in the large airsp... Read More
Strong and Satisfying

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
The best way to prepare this is to slice it into coins with a cheap cigar cutter while trying to keep the coins as thin as possible. I then rub the tobacco out and let it dry. This s some really moist leaf but it dries in no time once you slice it.... Read More

I've found with !ost Gawith & Hoggarths blends that they can be fairly harsh to me when I first get them. However, without fail, if I had them for a few months (3 months seems to be the minimum) they mellow out beautifully and become truly wonder... Read More
Great First Rope

If you're wanting to venture into the waters of rope tobacco, this is a great place to start. The Virginia flavor is superb. Keep in mind the higher nicotine, go a little slower with it, and you're in for an excellent piping experience.

Strong has been said, nice level set to kill. Ah, yes, this is one excellent rope tobacco. Should be smoked slowly, gentle puffs will reward you to nirvana. I've tried other rope blends, but this one stands out. We'll done gentlemen!

I have written several reviews of GH Twists, so I really can only a a delicious, strong, pure tobacco tasting rope. I am led to believe that this the same tobacco as Happy Brown Bogie (which I also enjoy) in a larger diameter twist. Try some. Not for... Read More
Good for people with high nicotine tolerance

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
After receiving this tobacco, I cut 3 or 4 thin round pieces with my cigar cutter. As the tobacco was still wet, I let it dry a bit and filled my Peterson pipe. Boy! it was a very strong tobacco. I was dizzy after smoking almost half a bowl and I ... Read More
An Outstanding Twist

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
Recently tried this and it is in my top 3 Twists. Not as strong as the SG #4 but almost as good and still packs a punch. I found it to have a little bit of a sweetness that cuts through the full body. If you looking for a more mellow Twist this is a ... Read More

Lasting Equilibrium

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
Previously, I made clear of my intense appreciation of Samuel Gawith’s “Brown No. 4” and “Black XX”. However, I must say that these two exceptionally rich smokes are set apart in the ineffable continuum of tobaccos. One (Brown No. 4) being “Habanero”... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Brown Irish Twist Bulk
One whiff of this in the Ziploc bag and I knew this was no ordinary pipe tobacco. Using a cigar cutter, I made three small coins that I rubbed out and put in my smallest Meerschaum. It lit easily and burned well, requiring only one re-light. No bite ... Read More

If the rope is not preferred, there is the sliced. Either way, you can't go wrong with this hearty meal of a tobacco. It burns clean, and not to hot (provided you take care in how you dry it and how fast you smoke). It comes a little moist, but I lea... Read More
