Samuel Gawith Cabbie’s Mixture Tobacco is a Virginia and perique twist hand rolled, then hand sliced. A sweet natural Virginia taste takes centre stage when lit with the perique, giving a spicy undertone to the flavour.
Samuel Gawith’s Cabbie’s Mixture is a beautiful roll cut of finest Virginia with 6% Louisiana Perique woven into the middle. Roll cut tobaccos are produced by spinning tobacco leaves into long ropes, which are also called twists. These twists are further enhanced by pressing and cooking, which allows the flavours of the leaves to mingle, mellow and develop together. Once the rope is ready, after a long and elegant process, it is sliced into convenient discs that are also known as roll cuts. To prepare for smoking, a little rubbing of the coils will loosen the tobacco, which can then be packed into a pipe. Cabbie’s Mixture is a delight that burns long and cool. Being mild on the tongue and palate, its flavours gently percolate the sense of taste. It would make an ideal postprandial treat, or serve as an all day smoke. This tobacco is a perfect candidate to be aged, though it is very agreeable straight from a new tin.
