Description Ref # NRPalaceG

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.

Until 2013 this tobacco was very limited on the UK market, it could only be purchased from Russia, Canada and a few other places around the world.

While Samuel Gawith are famous for their Virginia and Latakia blends. Gawith’s master blender has pulled out this shocker of an aromatic blend and what a little beauty she is!

Built on a base of Virginias, a touch of Burley and a little Black Cavendish, along with a coconut topping. We are left with a tobacco with is not sticking like the classical aromatics of the American and Danish blends.

Tasting Notes

As soon as you pop the seal on the tin, you become enchanted with the sweet smell of coconut, pulling the seal completely off and you could be sitting on a beach somewhere drinking Pina Coladas.

The thick ribbon cut makes for an easy packing, it’s best not to load up too tight. Once you take a light to the bowl, the tobacco fluffs up and you are rewarded with a very tasty charring light. With a little tamping, you are in business and you see why this tobacco is so highly desired.

The smoke is smooth and cool thanks to the Burley and Black Cavendish, the Virginia keeps the blend refreshing and bright.

Strength: 3/5

One of my favourite SG blends, the tin note is predominatley blackberry, you would be expecting a very sweet, maybe sickly smoke, but not at all, i find the brandy really the main taste here, creamy vanilla, then the blackberry, no bite, smooth and of medium strength, rubs out easily, moisture level was fine with my tin, i have heard it can be over moist (better that than bone dry imo) a definate rotation staple for me!! 8/10!

It is best with this blend to let it dry out a bit before trying to light, if not it's definitely not the easiest of blends to light. When lit you're welcomed by the delicious yet subtle flavour of blackberry brandy, definitely not overpowering but just the right amount to know it's there. This blend definitely needs well deserved down time to really enjoy the rich flavour it has to offer, a obvious recommendation, one of my absolute favourites!
