    *Oops...title should have read " SG Plugs are...." (Not Cob)
    If a Mod wan'ts to fix it///great. If not, the thread goes on as is. lol

    mmmm...mmmm....good!
    (Better than Campbell's soups) heh

    Just split a pound of Grousemoor Plug with a couple other PSF'ers and got it today.
    OMG is it good! 4 star (out of 4) all the way.
    I have also had the Kendal Plug and loved it too!

    Now I need to save my money (and wait till they are available) and get some Cob, Canon, and RB Plug.

    Way to go SG!

    Which ones have you guys had and maybe like the most or least? Has anyone had all of them?
    Damn, life is good. :puffy:

    Supposedly this one does, but like regular Grousemoor, I can barely detect it.
    It has a slight sweetness to it.

    Cob Plug is gooder than 1792...but I don't like a heavy tonquin presence, so...

    If you mean soap, no soap in this one .
    If you mean flowers and herbs, it's there in a nice quantity.

    No Samuel Gawith blends are scented in the style of Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.

    GH tends to be heavily floral in their scented blends.

    SG blends tend to be herbal, and if you want you can find some kind of "soapy" quality to it if you want to think of it that way. But in terms of tasting the way perfume smells, you're not going to find it with SG.

    I have both Kendal and Grousemoor Plug on hand. I have to say I really love both of them. If I had to choose a favorite, though, it would be Grousemoor Plug, which is one of my favorite tobaccos. Very fresh, fragrant, sweet, and herbal. The stuff just screams springtime. I find the scent to be heavily lemongrass, but with a little something else there. There's almost a buttery quality to it in a way. Probably has some tonquin and other stuff. But herbs and lemon are foremost. Definitely not floral in the least to my palate. It's way better than Grousemoor Mixture, though that stuff is pretty good in it's own right.

    Still haven't had Cob plug or Cannon, but my guess is that I'd love them, too. 1792 is a great tobacco blend, so I can only imagine Cob would be friggin fantastic.:puffy:

    Do you find a difference between the plug and regular cut grousemoor? I ordered the cut, and had a bowl 2 days ago. I found it really strong on something. Not to sure what it was, as I have never ecperienced something like that before. It was very different to say the least. I am going in today for one more bowl, so I can make a better decision on whether to trade it or not. Maybe the plug is better, and would love your input on this?

    I found them different, but I am probably not the one to ask because to me, both were weak in any Lakeland type essence and barely noticeable.

    I didn't have enough GP sliced and rubbed to fill a whole bowl this morning, so I made a parfait with BBF. Most excellent. The BBF was on the bottom and the top. It started mildly aromatic, built up, and finished creamy smooth. I'll do this more often.

    I've smoked SG plugs for years, fortunately I can get them easily, I mostly smoke meerschaums - but have been smoking a couple of plugs in my clays, for a day or two and the difference is noticeable - and sublime!....try it! :puffy:

    I want to try this stuff. I don't want the soap taste. I do like latakia.

    Q. What can I try that doesn't taste like soap?
    Q. Is there more flavor in the plug?
    Q. Will these leave behind a strong ghost?

    1 ......I personally don't taste soap in any SG offerings, a good one for starters might be Kendal Plug - similar to Best Brown flake.
    2 .....possibly - but not neccessarily, preparation and pipe choice will affect this.
    3 ........no!...nothing that a dose or two of CH can't handle!

    If I never heard or read that there is "supposed" to be some Lakeland essence to it, I would have never known.
    I can't taste it or smell it in either.
    Nothing like Condor, Ennerdale, Bob's Choc, or M79! ;)

    My B&M has a selection of SG plugs on the shelf, they are hunks weighing around 50 to 60grams in a little plastic pouch. I buy three or four, when I call - and vary my choices a little, but one time I tried Canon, and it's the ony one that I shall not be having any more of!. If you are not into strange, big-time flavouring stay away from Canon!.....it will blow your mind!:eek:
