This stuff. Chews me up and spits me out! Small bowls, puffed SLOWLY. I guess the brown twist is even stronger... I can't even describe it. Strong strong strong.

I tried smoking a bunch of different full strength ropes that were gifted to me 3 years ago by a brother that used to post here. G&H Black X was one of them. I smoked a small bowl of it. Intense, spicy, meaty and EVIL is how I would describe it. Due to the nicotine, I went to bed late that night. I woke up during the 3-4 o'clock hour and spent a long stretch of me time on the potty. Serious nicotine overage. That stuff and the rest of its strong rope brethren is not for me.

I still occasionally dabble, though I tread quite lightly. A little bit goes a long way, that's for sure.

Try to avoid the SG Black XX Twist, it's stronger in both taste and N than the G&H

Yes, the brown is stronger, but I like it better than the black. I can only take the burned/creosote flavor of the black twist in very small and occasional doses, but I could smoke the brown every day and be happy.

But I love strong tobacco, so YMMV.

I'm with Dr T. I used to smoke Vitamin N bomb almost exclusively. I know GH&Co claims otherwise but to me, Black is stronger than brown in flavor and nicotine.

Oh man, sounds like something to try, just because.... There must be something to it, as it always seems out of stock....

Never had any of the G&H ropes, but have had SG Brown rope years ago and it's completely OTT in nic for me!

Not tried either G&H or SG black rope, but if it's similar in character I'll be giving it a wide berth!

Guess some of you folks are nic-tolerant. I'm not!

Embarassed



Cheers,

RR

Are the ropes really the nicotine bombs they are made out to be? I feel like the flakes & Plugs are heavier because they are thicker, the ropes when rubbed out are paper thin. I love the GH Anise rope that I ordered from Mr. Snuff, haven't tried the unscented GH Ropes yet

By my experience, YES!

Surprised

(Insert every joke a 13 year old kid would have said)

Now that I got that out of my system..

You nailed the exact reason the Ropes are stronger. They burn faster.
If you really want your ass handed to ya go smoke the corresponding shag offering of whatever flake you are smoking.

You gotta figure that they are using the exact same tobacco for several of these blends. One style (rope/flake/ready rub/shag) doesn't have mystically enhanced nicotine.

BTW: I don't rub out my rope (guff) or my flake. With rope I cut coins and stuff, with flakes I just stuff. I figured if I was supposed to rub them out that they'd be shipped rubbed out. Otherwise why sell rope/flake/ready rub/ shag and charge more for flakes and ropes than they do ready rubbed?

I rub out (Lol everytime I say rub out i crack too) all my ropes and flakes & plugs. The flake and plugs are still much heartier than ribbon or shag cuts, they have more flavor and volume in my experience. The flakes and plugs seem fresher to me and the toppings and casings hold better, so i don't mind rubbing them out.

Right but fresher doesn't equate to stronger.

It's all in the square footage of fire. The thinner the tobacco (in every dimension)the more area that will be on fire at any given time.
