Samuel Gawith: Celtic Talisman 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-059-0037

Samuel Gawith was the son-in-law of Thomas Harrison, a snuff manufacturer who moved his trade and equipment to Kendal, Cumbria, England from Scotland in 1792. Gawith inherited this equipment from Harrison, and the company has been crafting premium tobacco since, with one of Samuel's two sons continuing the brand while the other joined with Henry Hoggarth to establish Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Though offering separate blends, both brands remain forever linked and still share the same manufacturing facility in England's Lake District, utilizing processes and techniques that date to the brands' 1792 roots. In many of their mixtures, Samuel Gawith maintains the standards enforced by the United Kingdom's strict purity laws of the 19th and 20th centuries — such laws dictating how much and what type of flavorings could be added to pipe tobacco and ensuring that sub-quality leaf wasn't hidden under the veil of exorbitant toppings.

Samuel Gawith's Celtic Talisman is a delicious Aromatic pipe tobacco combining Virginias and Burley with Black Cavendish that's been topped with kirsch — a cherry-flavored liqueur — and vanilla for a delightfully sweet and fruity aroma.

I would recommend this to new pipe smokers. It has just enough flavor to satisfy the taste for an aromatic but it's not overwhelming to the smoker that's used to traditional blends. It also makes for a perfect change after heavy indulging on the Pe... Read More
Decent for an aromatic

Product: Samuel Gawith Celtic Talisman 50g
This is a decent aromatic, I found it to be too wet right out of the tin, so I dried it for about an hour. Being an aromatic, it needs some moisture to retain its flavor. Smoke it too fast and it will bite you, it wants to be smoked slow and steadily... Read More

This is a very fine tobacco. Nice subtle cherry and vanilla flavors. Not too strong in the bowl and easy on the palate. I was hoping for just a bit more cherry aroma and flavor but all in all this is an enjoyable smoking experience.
