Who knows Samuel Gawith knows their famous Kendal Plug. The tobacco has a naturally sweet smell, and when burning, it produces a very pleasant room aroma. The taste tends to be sweetish, particularly at the beginning, and then slowly the sweetness gives some way to a whole range of taste variations, all very pleasant. It burns so slowly and evenly. I also find it to be a very satisfying smoke.

Comment:

The smell, and later the taste and aroma, are all very intriguingly sweet and heavily flavored. It somehow smells of a mysterious combination of exotic spices! During the smoke, the taste changes from sweet, to bitter, to spicy, etc. The smell to non-smokers is very pleasant though could be overwhelming at first. This is definitely a tobacco that offers an unusual, and yet pleasant, smoking experience.

The smell reminds my mother of that of baking cookies!. When it's burning, it produces a very sweet aroma at the beginning and then dissipates into a less evident, and yet pleasant, aroma. The taste is also VERY sweet, without being irritatingly so. Highly recommended if you're after a traditional British Virginia that is serious and yet sweet.

Comment:

This is the plug version of Cob Flake (1792). So description will be the same, except that this will: (1) allow you better control over the thickness of the flake and eventually how it smokes, and (2) the taste is a bit rounder, though not necessarily stronger (could it anyway be stronger?!).

Comment:

Though this is the darkest Samuel Gawith Plug, it's one of the smoothest. The tobacco is easy to slice, rub out and pack. I believe it's best smoked slowly, in a medium-size pipe, and after dinner. The taste is really delicious. If you're used to SG's Full Virginia Flake and would like to try a Plug, I recommend this one highly.

Based on the previous one, with addition of a delicate flavour, it's one of the best-sellers from SG. The aroma is so pleasant to who smokes it, as well as to the people around him.
