I don't know what's gotten into me, but lately I have taken to smoking Gawith Hoggarth rope tobacco as a nightcap. Maybe I have officially joined the dark side?

I found that the trick with this stuff is knowing when to cut myself off. Thankfully I own a BOB POY from 2014. This was the year where Scottie Piersel was carving her pencil stemmed clay briar "Scottie" pipes for forum members and my little smooth Dublin is a perfect tool for the strong tobacco task. The chamber is a smidge over an inch deep with about a 5/8" conical bore. A few rubbed up slices off a rope is practically enough to fill the bowl for a pleasant 20-25 minute smoke and by the time the bowl is ash, I am in perfect shape for bed with no ill-effects. Lately I have had several bowls of Brown Irish X and it's a marvelous smoke. It's inspired me to buy a little more and to try a few of the sweetened/flavored twists.

Ohohohho boy, here we go!

Yuppers, a nice little Dutch clay of those blends get me through the night... That Rum Twist goes a long way for me....

The Dark Side? I don't know about that, but the force is strong with that one! Wink

Rande, Not at all man, not at all.

Trust me, I count myself among the nicotine impaired & I bring a small pipe to the party.

That said, there is something special about a few of these twists, especially the G&H Brown Irish X. It's a flavor that you just can't find in anything else. It's a certain level of intensity that they have. For instance, SG Brown No. 4, (which I don't care for), is the pipe tobacco version of a dry finely ground English/Irish toast snuff with an earthy, smoky, bitter taste and raised-fountain crawl space aroma, with no sweet counter-point. However, G&H Brown Irish X is a revelation, it has the sweet counter point that SG Brown No. 4 is missing. I really don't want the power, but I really want the flavor that these tobaccos deliver, and in order to get that I have to smoke & tread lightly. Unfortunately for now, that means getting in and getting out. Razz Twisted Evil
