Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 50g
Al abrir tiene un olor a hule tratado o neftalina. El tabaco vino muy humedo por lo que disminuyo su sabor a fumarlo. En general es de poco sabor y poco complicado aunque tiene mas nicotina de lo que uno hubiera imaginado. Les recomiendo que lo dejen... Read More
Not as good as the tin

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 250g
I enjoy the tinned version of Skiff and thought I'd same some money by trying the bulk box. Big mistake. Inside the box the tobaaco is just contained in a plastic zip bag, came very dry, smoked badly, and simply wasn't the same as the tin.
Quality, but not a winner.

Samuel Gawith produces some of my favourite blends. This is of obvious quality, and I may change my review yet since I've only had a few bowls. I read reviews that this was a mild tobacco, but for regular pipe smokers, this will be "ultralight.&... Read More
Quality Tobacco

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 50g
It's not my cup of tea. I get a big sour note from this one. I'm going to cellar the tins I have and see if that helps it out. It is a blend using Quality Tobacco it's just not for me.

Great smoke, and a decent medium build that smokes all the way through, with decent finish. No ashy taste at the end.
Best Balkan I've Had.

I thought that H&H Whiteknight was the greatest, Balkan I had experienced. Perfect moisture. Perfect sourness from the orientals to balance out the latakia. Then I bought this on a whim when it came back in stock. Beautiful. Just beautiful. Mello... Read More
Amazing Oriental/English

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 250g
People say this is identical to Squadron leader and between the 2, the devil is in the details. This is primarily an oriental blend while Squadron Leader is a proper English. The Orientals anr slightly spicy and take front stage with support from t... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 50g
One of my favourite English blends. If you want those notes of crude oil, sunshine, and leather, this could be your English. It is like the Hemingway of pipe tobacco.

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 250g
This is hands down one of my favorite English/Balkan blends that's currently on the market. The excellent Gawith VA's are the backbone of this blend and it's just the perfect amount of natural sweetness. The nicotine is just below the medium threshol... Read More
Well Balanced Blend

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 50g
The components of this blend work very well together. The Latakia is subtle. It also has a sourness to it that is very satisfying. It reminds me of Presbyterian Mixture. Easy tobacco to love.
No me quejo...

Este blend sabroso, pero definitivamente, le falta algo, no sabrĂ­a decir que es, pero no creo que vuelva a comprar este tabaco...
My Holy Grail?

Product: Samuel Gawith Skiff Mixture 50g
This is a very sweet Oriental blend. The Latakia stays where it should, in the background. It gets better with age, great after five years. It is my "desert island" blend. If a tsunami were coming, this is what I would save before anythi... Read More
