Great shag Virginia I like it better that the C&D bright Virginians as they are lighter and burn up way to quick. This has more of a mellow not darker but heavy note. I personally love to role ciges with this for when I have some friends over for... Read More

When I first started smoking pipes, I really didn't like KG, but it grew on me. Its flavor is very simple; like bright Virginias without casing, which will taste very bland to the uninitiated. There is a mild Lakeland essence on it, but not much—my s... Read More

This is a good Virginia tobacco The price is a little high. The taste is mild and taste of sweet hay. I must comment on Smoking Pipes service: The best:::

Broke out the cob for this one. It pairs nicely with it. Kind of hard to pack as it is very stringy and it will burn very hot and quick. Note is ok as well as taste. It is very smooth and easy smoke it’s more of a I just want to smoke but don’t want ... Read More
Tea and Hay

This stuff smells like unbrewed tea and hey (there's gotta be a t&a joke in there somewhere). The room note, according to my roommates, is "nothing". It taste like tobacco with a mild, yet pronounced sweetness. I'm more into aromatics... Read More

I’m a huge fan of G&H tobacco. Several of them are my absolute favourites. Kendal Gold is like a fine dessert tobacco without any casing. This is the sweetest tobacco I’ve ever experienced without the addition of any topping. The shag ensures that yo... Read More

I am exploring my options as a new smoker and I bought this since it was in the top 10 list here. I found it very mild and easy to smoke, no bite and actually stayed lit for me! This might mean that I'm getting better at packing the bowl, but it wa... Read More

This is a MILD Virginia with lots of subtle complexity. This is some of the most visually beautiful tobacco I know of. Just look at that photo, it really does look that good!

Great for blending, I like to blend it with brown cavendish and store it for few monthes and only thensmoke it. Excellent quality virginia, good moisture.

This is nice when I want something mellow and unflavored. It tastes okay and was easy to light.
Have had a few shag cuts and this was one of my favorites

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Gold Bulk
The cut is a challenge to pack, too tight and it won't stay lit or you get uneven burn which effect the flavor, too light and it's gone before you know it and you've hardly had a chance to experience what it's all about. If you get it right, you get ... Read More

All the hurricanes must have wash out the crop of Virginia tobacco. Nothing I've found compares with this Kendal Gold.

Best tobacco I've found. Problem is, now it's out of stock. I knew I should have ordered more in my last purchase. I'm down to 1/2 pound. I hope I don't have to try and find a substitute for this tobacco. It would be hard to do.
I wanted to like it

This is the first time I have tried tobacco from this manufacturer. I didn't care for the pouch smell too much, It really had a sour kind of smell that reminded me of tea. After drying it out the smell was pretty decent of just Va tobacco. I really l... Read More

I enjoy this stuff during the day throughout the warmer months. It's light and refreshing, and smokes great in my MM and Old Dominion cobs. It isn't particularly complex, but the hay and tea notes are great for times when you want something simple.
Like it , sorta.

I'm trying to like this. I liked the color and cut and wanted the hay/citrus taste. The top of the bowl is awesome but it packs so thick and required some poking or I'd end up dumping half of it out thinking it was through. I'm not giving up though. ... Read More
Salt for eggs

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Gold Bulk
The value of this tobacco is that it adds just the right spice to other tobaccos. If you can imagine a lump of tobacco the size of a set of two eggs, sprinkle this on as you would salt. It takes bland from mild to wild. I do this with Broken Scotch... Read More

I was fascinated by the gold color. It looks so different than anything else and not a lot of discussion about this blend. What a surprise. Great feel, just dry enough for a good smoke. Pouch smell was tobacco and mild sweetness. Great shag cut,... Read More
