Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Rum Twist
A pleasant surprise
I didn't know if I'd like this. Enough that I ordered some years ago and forgot about it. Having just found it over Christmas, I wish I hadn't waited. It's delicious. Warm, deep, rich tasting. It doesn't change a lot throughout the bowl and it doesn't need to. Not much rum taste which I can't tell is a result of age or if it is just a result of it imparting a richness to the tobacco. Either way, this one works for me. 5 Stars. Little wonder this has been around for centuries.

A great, simple aromatic
This is a wonderful, simple blend that is good on it's own but that also works great as a mixer to brighten up other blander tobaccos. Has an incredible room note and is very smooth.

This tobacco is wonderfully weird.
Tried this the other day after hearing about the raves. The scent scared me since it even ghosted the towel the bag was sitting on while on my desk. The bizarre scent fades into the back when you light it up and it becomes a pleasure from start to end.

I had high hopes for this tobacco. Sadly, it was a disappointment. Just bland from the top of the bowl to the bottom.
