Gawith Hoggarth: RUM FLAKE 50g

Your Price: $8.99
Out of Stock
Item Number: GHRF
The 'Christmas cake' of all our pipe tobaccos. A very rich, sweet fully flavoured blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured pipe tobaccos in the blend - over 40%. Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from Burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a strong, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum.

I didn't like this tobacco much when I first tried it after smoking a mild Virginia, but found it grew on me the more I smoked it. I couldn't taste the rum in it. The tin says it also contains vanilla, but I couldn't taste that either. It has an old fashioned mature, earthy flavour that I came to appreciate, though I wouldn't say the taste was more than medium strength. It also has a fair dose of nicotine. I intend to smoke this in winter as an alternative to Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake. Overall, it's a very satisfying smoke that's worth a try.
Fantastic. Luxurious. Exquisite.

I don't like liqueur anything. Never have. That said, Gawith Hoggarth Rum Flake was a fantastic surprise. These are high grade, sweet tobaccos, beautifully blended with only the barest hint of rum, although it smells strong straight from the tin. Luxurious, exquisite and eminently satisfying are words that come to mind. Packed wet. Needs drying. Gorgeous!

I rate this five star. Both the taste and aroma is outstanding. There is no tongue bite and the taste is superb. My only regret is I did not discover it forty years ago. Highly recommended!
