**Manufacture Change: Lightly Vacuum Sealed with Plastic Seal On Tin**
Samuel Gawith Black XX is an English rope tobacco, something you may or may not be familiar with. Fine Virginias are twisted, stoved and allowed to mature. Be careful with this blend, if you’re not familiar with it. The taste is fairly mellow, but there’s a wallop of strength ready to hit you hard if you’re not prepared. For that reason, we recommend this blend only to experienced smokers.

Hmmm, very strong, not for the novice starting out, not a pleasant room note, that said I highly recommend if you like a stronger tobacco with a nic hit!
When prepared and dry, expect a strong cigar-ish type hit. The note is similar to strong snuff or chew, I personally love to mix it 50/50 with some BCA to tone it down and add a sweet note.
I gave this an extra star because I did manage to get through the whole canister, but I think I could have just taken shavings of a car tire and rolled my own. Won't be buying this again.
Excellent full flavored tobacco. I personally don’t get the overwhelming nicotine hit that is common in reviews for this stuff. My only gripe, most likely my inexperience, is having to re-light constantly. I use a cigar cutter and slice thin coins, let them dry for 5-45mins, rub the out, and pack. Love the flavor, just can’t get it to stay lit.
Both are wonderful blends, if you can get them!
Strong and delicious.
This stuff will make you into a man. I smoked this stuff one night and the next day I woke up and my beard had grown 4 inches. In all seriousness, this stuff is Strong with a capital “S”, I cut it about the width and shape of a penny. Once this is back in stock I’m grabbing a 5 pack. Maybe one day I’ll try and chew it like the sailors used to do way back when.
Wasn't sure what to expect. Found I treated it similar to a flake. I enjoyed it.
