Product Description

The steamed, Black Kendal twists look dark, rich and above all strong. While this is mainly true compared to many other pipes tobaccos, it not when it comes to twist. What start off as the all so powerful Brown Twist, the Black twist on the other hand is pressed and steamed. This not only darkens the tobaccos, it also reduces the nicotine and removes some of the spicier side of the blend. We do have to say, even though this is lighter than Brown Twist, it is still a strong tobacco in the grand scheme of things. Thanks to the small addition of fire cured leaf, this tobacco has a complex array of flavours; Smoky, Spicy, Woody, Earthy, Leathery and all the while very smooth and cool to smoke.

"All our twist tobacco varieties are manufactured by the same spinning process using dark fired wrapper leaves. The filler is again, predominantly dark fired leaf with the addition of a small percentage of dark air cured Indian leaf. They are therefore strong tobaccos. Black Twist, because the cooking process removes some of the stronger tar and nicotine elements, provides a milder smoke than the brown twist." - Gawith Hoggarth

To prepare Twist tobaccos, take a shape knife and cut off small coins 1/8" thick. Then treat these small coins as any flake, but a word of warning these twist tobaccos hold the moisture very well and may require a little air drying before use. Twists ability to hold moisture saw this the primary way of keeping tobacco fresh during transatlantic voyages.
