I've tried rope tobacco and I feel if smoking this garbage that tastes like creosote soaked grease rags wrapped in newspaper makes or defines one as tough then I think I'll just pass sir. I think what makes one tough is having the wisdom to know the difference between thinking one is tough and really being tough.
If I choose to smoke tar paper cigars it would hardly make me tough, only sadly ignorant. Wink

I much prefer the brown ropes to the black, but they're also a bit stronger.

Yes sir and that was enough for me, anything that tastes that bad is not worth further research IMHO.
Nowadays I do little experimenting and only smoke Escudo and ODF with an occasional visit of a few Germain blends on special occasions. Wink

Oddly, while I don't care for the SG Black XX, I do like the GH version. Still, we all have different tastes.

Same here.

And yes SG Black XX does have a greasy burnt tallow flavor that is somewhat disagreeable.

I enjoy the rich flavor of the brown ropes, but still to this point, even smoking very small amounts at a time, I can't get past the effect of the nicotine. No

Last night/early this morning I put myeslf to bed after a bowl of Dark Flake Scented. Made it almost to the bottom of a Falcon bowl before I had to stop. A great smoke to be sure, but I won't try smoking it during a road trip driving....

As long as I am cautious, I can smoke Dark Flake Scented with out any ill effects. That's one of my favorite G&H flakes.

Coniston & Bosun are good ones too.

I have a small bowl clay tavern pipe with a long stem that I smoke these in. Keeps me honest.
