String and Good!
June 19, 2017
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
I have been a dyed in the wool fan for over 40 years. It's what led me into the enjoyment of tobacco pipes. I had long wished to find a dark shag tobacco that would best fit the description of Holmes's everyday smoke. And now I have found not one, bu... Read More

This is a fantastic tobacco, creamy, woody, smoky, slightly sweet, slightly spicy. this is a finely cut shag tobacco, so it packs easily. I love it with my morning coffee, it definitely hits the spot. If you're not used to higher nicotine blends, you... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
I tried several times to get through a bowl of this vile mix and failed. I don't find it strong or harsh, just nasty. I reminds me of an old cheap drugstore cigar. Maybe I lack the refined palate to appreciate this one but I hope my hero Holmes was n... Read More

I prefer [email protected] Dark Birdseye to this one. Kendal Dark has to many rough edges for me.
Dark VA with Cocoa & Anise
August 30, 2021
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
There's no Lakeland in this. Unlike our C&D or Pease mixtures, this one is much less tangy than a red VA, and possesses no citrus from the bright VA. Perhaps it's the casing but this is woody sweet with a slight anise flavor. It's a little one-dim... Read More
Dark chocolate anyone?

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
With a whisky highball or some coke & in the right pipe, this blend really reminds me of that deep taste you get in your mouth after sucking on a piece of dark chocolate until it has been dissolved. I smoke this on occasion and have it in a pipe ... Read More
Gawith...Hoggarth...And All’s Right With The World
March 14, 2021
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
A remarkable pouch note greets you, as with so many other Gawith Hoggarth greats. Something between smoked beef, spices and fresh leather fills your nostrils. I know this is a Gawith Hoggarth product, but if you’ve puffed through a lot of Samuel Gawi... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
I love everything about this tobacco. The taste is so pleasant and satisfying. The shag put me off at first, but the cut is easy to deal with, and burns nicely, even straight out of the bag, and it is plenty strong. Smoked cool, it has a lot of toba... Read More
Excellent And Pure

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
This is really good dark fired forward blend where you can really taste the quality leaf used. The Virginia mostly stays in the background nicely but it pops up to the front a little more here and there throughout the bowl and is detectable pretty mu... Read More
Good for everything

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
Tobacco's like Kendall dark are the reason I love Sam Gawith/GH. It contains only dark, strong tobaccos, but the way it's processed makes it smooth enough to smoke any time and any way, whether morning, afternoon, or evening. Sometimes I even mix i... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
I just received this tobacco, today. What a treat! It has a full rich flavor, smooth cool smoke. It doesn't bite, nice nicotine hit ( not over powering ). Burns too white ash. It's just my opinion, but give this Kendal Dark a try. You won't be disapp... Read More
Perfection!

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
This was the best surprise upon ordering a new batch of tobaccos to try. G&H is a favourite of mine, but all partiality aside, I love Kendal Dark. After falling for Dark Bird's Eye, I didn't think I'd find another on par, but this certainly did i... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
I bought 9 different tobaccos on Smokingpipes.com, and I smoked one of them one day at a time. I like a mild tobacco with some flavor, maybe Virginia or burley processed as Black Cavendish, but no latakia or perique. I bought the following, listed in... Read More

Does It Get Better Than This?
July 13, 2012
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Dark Bulk
Strong, Smokey, Smooth, and Sweet. This tobacco needs to dry out if you want to roll or inject. If you let it dry to a crisp feel while still maintaining elasticity, you'll experience an explosion of flavor as described above. My fav. If it gets any ... Read More
