Description

It all started in Kendal, England in 1792. Thomas Harrison was a successful snuff maker. Jane Harrison Thomas’s daughter, eloped in 1838 to a young man of Kendal, Samuel Gawith. When Mr. Harrison died in 1841, he left the business to his daughter and son-in-law, and over the years Samuel Gawith continued to prosper.

In 1865, Samuel Gawith died prematurely at the age of 48. His eldest son, also called Samuel, was only 22 and his father had wisely left the firm in the hands of three trustees, one of whom was this son. The elder trustee was Henry Hoggarth, a boyhood friend and neighbour in Lowther Street who had founded a Kendal firm of land agents and surveyors.

In 1878, Samuel and his younger brother, John Edward Gawith decided amicably to go their separate ways and so the two Gawith firms came into being. Samuel took over the snuff mill and business at Mealbank, and John stayed on in Lowther Street.

The firm in Lowther Street went through some troubled times but, in 1887, a new partnership was founded between Samuel’s youngest brother, William Henry, and Henry Hoggarth junior, to be known as Gawith Hoggarth Company.

Gawith Hoggarth Company continued to manufacture tobacco products and snuff at the Lowther Street works until 2009, when they moved to new business premises.

And now, in 2015, the two companies will be back together under one roof.

The Kendal Black Irish XXX is a British made Twist tobacco made up of predominantly dark fired leaf with the addition of a small percentage of dark air cured Indian leaf.

The more X’s in the name the thicker the twist so this is a pretty heft rope.

Black twist is made from Brown twist, which has undergone a further process of cooking under pressure, which turns it black. This cooking process in the Black Twist removes some of the stronger tar and nicotine elements, which produces a less intense smoke than the brown twist but still has a strong intense flavour and wouldn’t be recommended for the beginner.

Irish twist is the thickest twist which is generally preferred by pipe smokers but can and is often chewed!!

This is my first rope tobacco as I’m a relative new comer to the world of pipe smoking having moved over from cigars. I am a bit of a puffer with a pipe which can cause problems with aromatics and certain types which get quite hot. This however I found a cool and satisfying smoke. I order a sample first as I wasn’t sure if it would be my cup of tea. On opening the pouch I was greeted with a a dark rope which almost resembled a large cigar in its thickness but squashed and more compressed. It has a smokey smell and also a slight vinegar smell (not unpleasant). I cut off a few slices which fell apart on the cutting board. I decided to break them apart by hand and then chopped the pipe into smaller pieces and began to pack my pipe. Once filled I realised I had packed it too tight for a sufficient draw and repacked again ensuring I had an easy draw through the pipe. I repacked about 3/4 of my original packing when reloading the pipe and lit it up. It took a bit longer than loose tobacco to light but when going it only required a few re-lights through the whole bowl. It is a smokey flavour which reminded me of a bbq and I don’t mean in a horrible way. It is a really nice smoke and gives you a really good nicotine hit. The after taste is not unpleasant and I was rather surprised how cool it smoked and no tongue burn. I was left with a fine powder at the end which I think is a good sign you get your money’s worth from a tobacco. If you have never tried a rope before I would recommend this as I have found it a very pleasant experience. The pipe used was a cob pipe which I use when smoking new types.
