Newminster - No.201 Straight Black
No bite; little flavor, which I find rather subtle and agreeable; good pouch aroma, burn aroma, room note; low nicotine (a nice break from 5 Bro's and Kendal Kentucky). There's a little sludge buildup, but this might be common to aromatics. For my single aromatic this will do nicely.
Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Dark Bird's Eye
I bought a factory bag so labeled about 12 years ago and was quite happy with the tobacco. It was a shag cut similar to that of GH&C's Kendal Kentucky. The tobacco was a little darker than the Kentucky and the "bird's eye" were well represented. I bought another GH&C factory pack 2 or so years ago. This tobacco was of a ribbon cut with no bird's eye to be found. The original was excellent. The second bag seemed a good strong Gawith/Hogarth I couldn't identify--but I can't imagine it's the same. Go figure.
