Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake (1.76oz/Tin) 50gram


Otherwise known as Cob Flake

Another one of iconic flakes from Samuel Gawith, 1792 is steamed flake with a top dressing of Tonquin. High grade dark fired Tanzanian leaf is hand stripped and steamed. The leafs are cold pressed in 12″ blocks for a few hours, this holds the “Cake” together for the next stage. The cakes are loaded into a steam press and cooked for about 3 more hours, the tobacco is left cool and rest. After this sort aging period the tobacco is given a top dressing of Tonquin, before being cut ready to smoke.

The resulting tobacco is rich, with a earthy, leather flavour that is velvety smooth with a sweet side thanks to the added Tonquin. Think of this as a sweet treat for the lovers of a dark and strong Virginia & Kentucky type tobaccos. Like a premium quality Nicaraguan cigar with the Maduro wrapper, all the power included. This is a very strong tobacco and not for everyone, those new to the pipe, should start a little lighter.
