Default Sam Gawith Skiff Mixture

This is an oriental blend. The artwork on the tin drew me in at the tobacconist. I'm towards the end of my first bowl and I give this two thumbs up! It's not too strong, I'd say around medium but has a nice bright round flavor. This is an oriental blend. The latakia is not too overpowering and it possesses a nice sweetness. I'm looking forward to more bowls of this tobacco!

If I were to write an ad for this blend it would read:

"Ahoy! Prepare to come aboard for a flavor adventure! Set sails and prepare your palate for the orient with a brief stop in Cyprus with this full flavored blend! You can take my word for it, everything is ship-shape and bristol fashion when it comes to this blend!"

I've been smoking this blend every morning during my recent Christmas vacation and am loving it! I'm looking at ordering some of this in bulk possibly! Highly recommended.

No school for me, just a working stiff these days. However, I do have a shiny associates degree from NTC in Wausau collecting dust in a box somewhere.

When are you gonna make it to a MoB herf?

Okay, I'm still not sick of this blend, quite the opposite. I find I can't stop smoking this! Any time of day, it cuts through with great flavor!

This blend is so cool, when it goes to sleep, sheep count it.

This is like a North Wisconsin pipe thread.

Hey guys, don't forget the North East Wisconsin Tobacco Society meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month - 6:00pm at St. Brendan's Inn in Green Bay. I know Wausau is a bit of a hike.


Emjaysmash - you should join us. More pipes than cigars, but Skiff Mixture would fit in with the crowd.

That's awesome! I'd like to make it to one of those. It would probably be this summer at the earliest. Doing a project at work that will go through July, so free time will be limited during the week.
