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.

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.
Not a fan at all...too difficult to slice thin even with a razor and I don't particularly care for the flavor. I bought this out of curiosity and regrettably it'll probably go in the trash, however, don't let my negative experience deter you because you might love it. Everyone's taste is subjective.
The tobacco was very fresh and the aroma was wonderful. It has a bold Flavor and smooth finish. My wife says it is not the best smelling pipe tobacco; this may be one to enjoy on the front porch.
The Tin note was of Chocolate; I let it dry for about 30 min after slicing and rubbing it out. It burnt nicely with an beautiful earthy tobacco and strong relaxing Nicotine note. I totally enjoyed this and smoke it weekly. Remember smoking it slow is the ticket.
I like it. It really does taste like the burnt part of a steak but I a good way. I gave it four and not five because it does have that love it or hate it taste. Try a tin.
