This mysterious anomoly of an SG blend, Kendal Cut Plug. Unlike other cut plugs, it looks more like the name describes (big, chunky bits of tobacco about 4x the thickness of an average flake) and less like a broken flake. Unlike the name describes, it does not taste purely like Kendal Plug, but has an herbal, slightly sweet flavoring most definitely from the SG blending house. It is strongly reminiscent of Grousemoor Plug in terms of how it's flavored, but the flavoring is quite sweet. Neither TR nor the SG website list Kendal Cut Plug as a blend produced by SG....
My guess, and it is only a guess, is that the shop from which it was purchased either roughly chopped up some Kendal Plug or bought the stuff from a distributor who did. I believe at some point, probably in the shop, it was stored in a container previously used for Grousemoor or some similar blend, without said container first being washed out, allowing for a hint of the topping to show in the smoke.
This same B&M is the first place where I got Kendal Dark, which is a wholly unflavored/unscented GH blend, but when bought from that store I definitely got a noteworthy quantity of GH's floral style scent.....so this wouldn't surprise me.
Anyway, whatever it is and whatever the story is behind it, once put in a pipe and lit up, it's a pretty pleasant smoke! Some oolong tea on the side
