Gawith Hoggarth Rich Dark Spring Dew Loose Pipe Tobacco
Made from the classic blend of Virginias (Flue and Dark Cured) and a dash of Burley, practically shag cut in its cut. The resulting tobacco is treated with steam and given a light, honeydew topping. The finer cut makes for a freer burning tobacco, which is ideal in the damp English conditions.
It has a sweet and pungent aroma from the jar – a very familiar Lakeland aroma. Once the tobacco is lit in a pipe however, that strong aroma is surprisingly subdued. Not really a Lakeland by all accounts, the toppings just add a little sweetness and play beautifully with the stronger Virginia flakes. Thanks to its cut this tobacco burns easily and should be smoked slowly, not only can she bite but also has a bit of power to her too.
