A big blend and strong, but not harsh. Samuel Gawith Brown No. 4 is a complex evening choice for the experienced smoker of English-style blends. The rope cut tobacco comes ready to smoke -- no need to dry it out, despite what the moistness might indicate. We recommend starting slow with this one, it’s smooth as silk, but packs a serious punch.

Rich and flavorful. This is great stuff if you know how to prepare it right. I use a guillotine cigar cutter and slice very thin coins, then rub them out like flakes. Sometimes I cut it again. I found it bites a bit, but a good filter or meerschaum definitely cuts down on this. Love the taste though, and the strength. Smokes great out of the tin if sliced properly. I tried a small package and liked it enough to buy the big package. I like this a lot more than the black.
A good strong and full flavored tobacco. My first choice for a tobacco like this in GH Brown Twist Sliced. But when it is out of stock, this is my go to pipe tobacco when I want something strong and full - but no bite. Like other reviews, I find it best to prepare thin slices and let it dry out for awhile. Then a great smoke. Good with strong black coffee or a good bourbon.
Hard to keep lit new... Once it burns its Glorious!!!! Can't wait to see what this turns into in a couple of years...
Out of the box, it's a horrid thing to keep lit. Dry it a bit and it becomes the best thing you can put in your pipe!
Strong and smooth. No bite for me when I drink carbonated beverages, unlike other smoke. Try with black coffee! This is a sipper as they would say, don't puff too much or you might pass out from vitamin n!
