A 200 year old secret makes Samuel Gawith's Grousemoor a mysterious mixture that conjures up visions of the Cumbrian Fells. A fresh and complex flavor from an old recipe, using combinations of Virginias, leaves the smoker with an almost white ash testifying to the purity.

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.

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 but not as sweet as youd except. Lights easy, burns beautifully and calm with no bites at all, even when pushed.

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 Moree - so it hadn't leaked away. Packing and lighting was straight forward, and the tobacco was very much a Virginia to my senses. The lemongrass component was there from the start, and remaind the same throughout. I didn't find any overpowering Lakeland flavor at all - more like a honey and rose impression. Interestingly, the sourness of the lemongrass reminded me of an Oriental tobacco. And even a slight peppery side, as though someone had put a dash of Perique in there too.... Maybe if I left it unopened, in another 5 years it would have turned into a Balkan! Seriously though, this Grousemoor was a nice and light tobacco with a clean and unghosted finish. Guess I should compare it to a more recent vintage. Or, wait another 10 years.... Read Less
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, 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 that “essence” and this is by far my favorite Lakeland yet. Lakelands are not for everyone, but everyone should at least try them. Grousemoor is a great way to introduce yourself. The topping is so faint it could easily be mistaken as the natural result of the blended delicious Virginias. This blend could easily be an awesome VA blend without the Lakeland essence, but then it wouldn't be nearly as unique. The cut is a fine ribbon bordering on shag; it packs nicely. I like to pack it in quite a bit more than usual. Because it is so shag-like you'll still get a good draw and it'll burn much slower this way. The taste is indescribably good from first light to ash. The flavors are mostly Virginia, as they should be in an all VA blend. The essence added is totally unique. I doubt I'd ever find another blend with this flavor profile. And, since it's a 200 year old recipe, if anyone was going to try to copy it, they've long since fell by the wayside. Okay, one last thing that I had to look up... it's pronounced Grouse like “house” and moor like “door” with plenty of room for regional accents to color, lol. Man, I love this stuff. Enjoy. Read Less
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 it that is so renowned with British blends, but its not over done and doesn't mask that natural toba... Read Morecco flavor. This is actually a pretty good blend if given a chance, and one can get past the floral essence. It seems to be made with quality leaf, easy to keep lit and smokes fairly cool.

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 Moreflavor. From the tin I smell Fruit Loops cereal, my wife doesn't. It's a beautiful light golden Virginia that I like to let dry overnight for a morning smoke. I thoroughly enjoy the taste/aroma in the mouth, snorked, and allowed to wisp up my nostrils; each one bringing out subtle differences in the flavor profile. I would call the mouthfeel creamy. For me there's a noticeable dose of nicotine, not a high dose that would cause any discomfort, but enough to thoroughly relax me, that slightly warming glow I cherish in the morning. My wife finds the room note very pleasant. This excels as a sipper in the morning. Now that I've experienced it, I want nothing else with my morning coffee. I've never been one to dedicate a pipe to a specific blend or style, but with this one I will. As delicate as the flavor profile is I can see it easily being tainted by other tobaccos. I'm breaking in a new bowl for my Falcon with Grousemoor and will reserve it for this blend only. Read Less
I find this blend an amazing smoke for late spring or early summer nights. Subtle, somehow floral, sweet, but not too much. Truly enjoyable.

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 savoury sweet. The flavour is almost identical to the smell, but has some added floral and grassy notes. If smoked slowly, it delivers a somewhat "refreshing" quality. Overall, It's not what I'd expect as a typical lakeland (at least in a floral sense), but stands in a class of its own. Highly recommended. Read Less
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 is a little moist, but takes light readily with a few touch ups. The flavor is not as intense or soapy as Ennerdale, but the floral element is still pronounced.

Highly recommended if you like floral aromatics made with good tobacco. Read Less
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.

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.
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.

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. Herbal--yes. Perfume-like--yes. Strange--yes. The best I can do to describe it would be that it is akin to smoking a cup of Earl Grey tea. The charring light is reminiscent of grass of a more illicit nature, but that quickly fades as less incriminating scents waft forth from the bowl. This is a sipping tobacco, pull too strongly and it may bite you--tis better to savor this conundrum of a leaf. Try it. After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Read Less
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 Moret have any moisture issues, the tobacco was ready to go. It has a wonderful flavor to the smoke, very smooth and creamy with a decidedly prominent lakeland floral finish. It's really tasty! Not a bad smoke…but it does leave a rather unwelcome taste in ones mouth. The after taste it left in my mouth was an experience all to its self. If you could take the tin smell, mix it with spit and old tobacco ash…that's the taste you would get. It has hints of chemical and lemon. That after taste was strange to experience, it was easily twice as strong as most blends. It's regrettabl, as the smoke is so enjoyable, but I have to give it two stars as there are other blends that are just as tasty but don't leave that nasty after taste. Read Less
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 MoreI really can't make my mind up on it. I am leaning towards it being unsmokable.

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 room note gives one the impression that they have entered the room where a campfire has taken place. At least that's the impression I was given by others when they entered the room. Smoking it and then smelling the notes did not give that impression to me. Instead, I smelled lichorish and star anis.
It is a fairly strong tobacco. It is not as strong as some that I have smoked and as long as it is smoked slow and evenly it is not too overwhelming.
I recommend this very unique tobacco. If for nothing else, but try something so different. You will either absolutely love it (I'm in that category) or absolutely hate it. Read Less
