Description Ref # NRKendal

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.

Then in 2015, the two companies returned back together under one roof.

Tasting Notes

A classic Virginia and Burley blend from Samuel Gawith, with the addition of a little added mystery!

As soon as you open the tin, you are greeted with golden and brown thick, cut flakes.

The aroma that wafts up is a mixture of the natural Virginia smells that Samuel Gawith are famous for. There is all so a slight nutty hint of Burley. The topping gives you a little citrus, tropical fruits vibe with an added earthy twist.

This tobacco requires very little drying and will smoke well a little moist. The flake can take a few times to become fully alight due to its thickness and how it is packed into the bowl.

Once you have this perfection of a tobacco burning the smoke is cool, smooth and very creamy. With the added topping not taking away the pure brilliance of this tobacco.

Strength: 3/5
Aromatic Taste: 3/5
Room Note: 3/5

I cant believe its taken me this long to try this tobacco (pipe smoker for well over 30 years). I always assumed this would be too strong for my tastes, but this may actually be the smoothest, best balanced tobacco (Latakia blend or otherwise) I have ever tried. When makers describe their products as slow burning and cool smoking, this is exactly how I always expected them to be, but they so rarely were. Medium strength, with enough Latakia to keep things interesting, but not so much that you couldnt use this as an all-day smoke. Easy to rub out, and not too much moisture. Added to my favourites, and will probably be my go-to tobacco from now on. Cant rate this highly enough. Try it yourself, you might just agree.

Excellent smoked on its own or as part of a blend.

A smooth and light smoke that absolutely earns its ‘creamy’ name. A very understated but solid smoke that is as enjoyable as it is subtle. The smoke is thick and of Course - Creamy! Robust enough to be able to smoke fast but best enjoyed slow. Depending on your preference of how fine you like to rub it out, burns slow. I like to leave it just thicker than a ribbon cut and loosely pack the bowl. This forces me to sip it slow, ensuring a cool smoke. I would highly recommend this for beginners who are thinking of trying a flake cut!

Having enjoyed a variety of Samuel Gawith flake tobaccos I decided to give the Full Virginia a try. After breaking up the flake and giving it some drying time the tobacco burnt well from the get go. A decent smoke output, but certainly not vast plumes. The tastes from the get go are, as you may expect, a mild-medium note of slightly sweet, Virginia tobacco. After smoking it for a while I notice notes of hay/straw/grass in the aftertaste which proved to be very pleasant. There are certainly no flavourings or toppings that I could detect which gave a pleasant hour long smoke from a filled bowl. Personally I dont think it has enough in the taste to become my regular pipe tobacco, but it was certainly a very pleasant smoke. If you are the type of pipe smoker that enjoys multiple bowls in the day then I think that this would make a fine early bowl.

When the tin is opened the aroma reminded me of some fruit cake my nan would make every time we would visit, raisins and dried out apricots... Anyway this tobacco delivers exactly what it is, pure, natural, sweetened Virginia taste. It's easy to enjoy and a very earthy smoke.
