Review: Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Kendal Kentucky

Full bodied and full strength, Kendal Kentucky is full strength and full bodied. Made from 100% African grown variations of Kentucky seed (Malawi, Uganda and Tanzania). Fire-curing of these tobaccos gives this tobacco very distinctive aroma and flavor.
