Samuel Gawith Kendal Brown Plain proposes a less scented version of the Kendal Brown series that accentuates the naturally smoky character of the outstanding tobaccos. The aromas are earthy, slightly herbal and ends in a umami like effect in the nose. The whole is much greater that its constituent flavor parts. The grind is coarse with a dark color and moist texture and has an easy intake to the nose with a moderate nicotine jolt that is no impediment to enjoying this snuff's character. Strictly a quality product, so enjoy.

Very nice plain cured tobacco. No added flavours here. I get pipe tobacco, leather and earth. Good burn. Medium to high nicotine. Highly recommend.
I don't sense any of the aromas that the writer of the brief description, under the photograph, has noticed.
To me, this snuff is almost unscented, mainly relying on the excellent tobaccos. Coarse ground, moderately moist, it has an earthy quality that develops onto more complex scents in the nose. I have read that this is S. Gawith's original snuff, and I see why it is still produced to this day. It is simply put, a very good snuff, suitable for all day use if one likes. No cloying lingering, artificial scents, nothing but excellent tobacco, with subtle scents, notes of leather(?), or perhaps something of a citrus scent, but just barely noticeable. This is a must try for all new snuffers.
Dark, non-cloying, rich tobacco. Not for those times when you need a quick pick-me-up; more for the leisure hours when you want to slow down and savour a fine flavour.
Medium-low nicotine, but that isn't really the point of this one: it's the characterful tobacco that this one focuses on, and Sam Gawith do that very well indeed.
According to their web site, SG make this from a single tobacco base and use a light citrus scent, though it's the tobacco rather than the citrus which dominates. It takes a little while for the aroma to develop in the nose (and for this reason it's best taken when no trace of stronger-scented snuffs remain there), but this adds to the overarching sense of the natural tobacco which this one carries.
Reasonably moist, nevertheless this is a coarse grind so be prepared to have grains scattered on and around you. This one doesn't clog and taking it is, in all respects (save perhaps for the low nicotine), an enjoyable experience.
