Samuel Gawith: Grousemoor Plug 8oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-059-0083

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 Plug 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.

The good ghost!

Product: Samuel Gawith Grousemoor Plug 8oz
Challenging to prepare but worth it. It will ghost a pipe so expect that to happen. I find the flavor helps other blends that are light so a good ghost for me. Richer tobacco flavors than the mixture. Some put away to age.
