Gawith Hoggarth - Sliced Black Twist RM (Formerly Rum)

Calculated at checkout


Product Description

(Sliced) Rum twist is a personal favourite of ours, this rich and no non sense tobaccos packs a punch with both strength and flavour. Made from 100% fire cured tobacco, tightly twisted into a rope and given a rum topping.  The tobacco is rich and packed full of earthy, leathery, cigar like flavours and the rum just adds an extra sweet, fragrant dimension.

If you are looking for a sweet and mellow Rum aromatic, try Century - Buttered Rum or the Gawith Hoggarth - Rum & Maple, as this is could not be any further from those. We have our Rum Twist pre sliced at the factory, for use in our blend as well as ease for the smoker. While still in the rope, this tobacco needs cutting and leaving to dry. In this pre sliced format, the tobacco only needs a short air drying inside the pipe bowl and its good to go. This tobacco can be smoked moist, but tends to be a little hot from the moisture and needs many relights. Once you have this tobacco going, the power and flavours will suffice any harden pipe smoker.

  1. Deliciously dark, with a decent rum topping. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2021

    A delicious dark, fire-cured tobacco with a fair hint of rum. I get notes of leather with raisin and more than a hint of rum straight from the tin. It's very moist and I find it benefits from a decent amount of drying time. I rub out about 1/2oz at a time and keep it in an old 1oz tobacco tin when I'm actively smoking it. The rest will, undoubtedly age well (if it gets the chance...).

    It has no hint of bite, even if treated harshly, but the flavours come through best if it's carefully packed and smoked very slowly. It needs more than the average number of relights and does leave some moisture in the bowl. For me, this isn't suitable as an all-day smoke, but for times when I want a full-bodied, dark tobacco, this is one I'll go to.

    For me, the nicotine levels are above medium and the room note is strong, which might not be to the tastes of non-smoking 'significant others'.

    Pipe Used: Peterson System '3'
