Samuel Gawith: Grousemoor 50g Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-059-0005

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.

Named for the field sport of grouse hunting popular in the United Kingdom, Grousemoor from Samuel Gawith is an iconic Lakeland blend topped with a number of seasonal scents that so often characterize blends from England's Lake District. A pure Virginia mixture, Grousemoor features flue-cured leaf that's first steamed before being cut. It's then stoved and topped with a mélange of essences.

DELICIOUS despite ignorant reviews

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
This is great, classy stuff. It has a distinctive flavor that apparently some can't handle... it has very little Lakeland essence, so if you are tasting it in this one you must really be sensitive to it and already hate it. This stuff gives off a n... Read More

Well, I was lucky enough to grab some mature tins of this blend, sitting on the shelf for some years, beeing totaly unwanted by the buyers of this tobacco store I was ran into. This thing is amazing. Special flavor, something soury Id inclined to say... Read More

First, I have to thank Padre Piper of the YTPC for recommending Grousemoor. This little gem of a Virginia blend wasn't even on my radar and now I can't seem to get enough. So, it's a Lakeland blend, right? Yes, I think it is. It has just a whisper of... Read More
One of my favorites
May 13, 2018
Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
I've found no other tobacco with a flavor like this gorgeous, non-sticky aromatic (which to me is orange blossom and hay, rather than Lakeland), though, since it's sold out, if anyone knows of one, I'd sure like to hear about it.
First, a Disclaimer. ...

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
I found an unopened tin of Grousemoor 'way back in my stack of tobacco, (about 10 years old) and so this may not reflect the state of a freshly minted example. Opening up the tin, the topping was rather subtle to my nose. The moisture was still ther... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
None dare call it simply good. It is either referred to in the vilest of terms, or praised as a gift from above. For me, it is a wonderful taste experience unlike anything I have smoked prior. Pray, what does it taste like? Anisette--yes. Citrus--yes... Read More
I like it!
February 23, 2018
Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
This seems to be a fairly polarizing tobacco, most people love it or hate it! Personally, I like it! It does have quite a bit of the Lakeland essence that it is so renowned with British blends, but its not overly done and doesn't mask that natural to... Read More
My Preferred Breakfast Blend
November 25, 2015
Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
Grousemoor is unlike any other tobacco I've smoked. I definitely taste something I'd describe as herbal and with so many calling it lemongrass, I'll take their word for it. It's certainly not lemon zesty though, it's nicely balanced with the tobacco ... Read More
Truly enjoyable.

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
I find this blend an amazing smoke for late spring or early summer nights. Subtle, somehow floral, sweet, but not too much. Truly enjoyable. I don't know if it´s just my impression, but I seem to get more flavor if I light it with matches or very so... Read More

Wow! Beautiful room note, and tin note. Smoking this reminds me of late spring early Summer. A wonderful clean, citrus flavor thats very pleasant from the start of the bowl right down to the end. Also the after taste is fantastic! This will be in my ... Read More
Worth a try.

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
Golden yellow tobacco with a unique scent, kinda lemony but with soapy perfume dirt note. Taste-wise, its good but in the different category. The topping is familiar tasting and will ghost a pipe so this is a dedicated cob blend for me. Tends to bur... Read More
Wow! What a great Aromatic!

This aromatic is really nice, the tin note smells a bit musty but fruity with a hint of floral to, the taste is different but very pleasant, hard to put my finger on the taste and smell, specifically, but it's great, almost like wild flowers, honey, ... Read More
Moor, Please.

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
What a great blend! It is easily a great morning tobacco with it's own distinct character. From the tin, the smell is very fruity and rich; think plums and figs. I was expecting more of a sharp or zesty sweetness, but found it to be a deeper and more... Read More
Wonderful Floral Aromatic
July 09, 2015
Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
This is my second Lakeland after Ennerdale. I love the tin and the presentation. Upon opening, one is greeted with a citrusy floral bouquet. The tobacco itself is a uniform pale blond cut in longish ribbons. Due to the cut, it is harder to load in sm... Read More
Very odd aromatic.
June 07, 2015
Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
I can't really decide if I like this blend or not. It is the oddest aromatic I've tried yet. The tin note I can only describe as along the lines of opening up a bottle of Pine sol. Room note is pretty standard of any Virginia except just a hint of so... Read More

Yes.. what a lovely Lakeland blend and the aroma is something special. I smoke mainly virginias and a small selection of aromatics in my rotation. This aromatic tobacco is satisfying in so many ways. 4 1/2 stars in my books.. I'm ordering more.
beautiful taste

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
Homogeneous pale Virginian tobacco with a very interesting (though one-dimensional) topping. The aroma/flavour reminds me of lemonade icypoles. While that may sound sickly and offputting, it is very pleasant. I find this tobacco not strong enough (n... Read More
Sweet but hot

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
Has a lovely floral flavor, smooth Virginia flavor full of grassy hay notes. Tends to burn hot and requires lots of relights until it's had a bit to air out. perfect during hot summer months.
Grandma is that you ?

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
I will be honest I liked the Tin art and decided to pull the trigger, upon opening the tin a pungent aroma of Grandma perfume hit my nose like a potpourri bomb. Smoked it in a cob about 10 min in stopped threw away the cob and mason jar'd the remaind... Read More

This tastes like it smells...and it smells like a bar of soap. Is there tobacco in this tin? Definitely not for me!

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
This tobacco, while extremely damp out of the tin, is a light and easy smoke. Lovers of aeromatics will love it. It's extremely sweet to the taste and has a very unique pre-smoked aroma. The smoke itself is cool, although it is recommended that you a... Read More

From my first order of tobacco came the citrus shocked Grousemoor. Required some drying. Strange tobacco, I thought. Strange topping, I said. It wasn't popular at first but it grew on me except I will say that I am concerned that it has some chem... Read More

If your into floral scents this will be right up your alley. Mild tasting smoke, the only problem about grousemoor gives me a headache when smoking it.

草是調味,味道有點湖區感覺, 但又不是, 到了中斷有奶香飄出。我欣賞不了它的美。

Talk about tongue bite. I don't know what they use for a casing but it scortches my mouth. You really have to smoke slowly which means tons of relights because of how goopy it is. How this is in the top 100 is beyond me. Literally the worst aromatic ... Read More

Tin note reminded me of canned fruit in syrup, like canned peaches or fruit cocktail... smells sweet. The tobacco looks like orange-brown ribbon cut needing no preparation and no drying. It took a few lights to get it started and burned slow and fair... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
Can't make up my mind if I like this or not. No denying it has a unique smell and taste, sometimes reminds me of menthol cigarettes. Worth a try, I can see how someone could love or hate this aromatic.
Patchouli Tobacco

First credit to BROBS review he hit the nail on the head. Like Smoking Patchouli topped tobacco. Seems to be a love it or hate it blend and I love it. Ordering 5 more tins while I can get it. Another great SG blend!

When I cracked this tin, I inhaled profoundly. Once, twice, thrice, and again. Aromatic I knew it was, but what sort of room note would ensue if ignited this English lass? It’s perfumed nose repelled me the first night. But the next day I resolved to... Read More

Very interesting. The tin has a unique aroma, sweet tomato and zesty lemon,grass, faint fig and floral. It smelled like an English but after the Virginia passes, were the latakia back note would be, there is a subtle flowery/grassy note. My tin didn'... Read More
Unsure about this one

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor 50g
It has a pleasant tin note, but I am not 100% if I like it or not. I have put it in my mason jar and shelved it a number of times, then keep pulling it out and smelling it again. This will ghost a pipe so I have limited it to one of my taster pipes. ... Read More
