Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake: A Bold and Flavourful Experience

Prepare yourself for a deep, robust, and immensely satisfying smoke with Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake. Crafted from dark-fired Tanzanian leaf, renowned for its strength and rich flavours, this blend undergoes a meticulous process of steaming, pressing, and baking to achieve its distinctive character.

The dark-fired Tanzanian leaf, a type of Kentucky tobacco, offers a complex array of flavours including woodiness, earthiness, smokiness, and spiciness. What sets this blend apart is the addition of a potent tonquin topping, infusing the tobacco with a delightful vanilla-esque perfume that enhances its richness.

While 1792 Flake smokes cool and burns evenly, it's not for the faint of heart. With its robust flavour profile and pronounced kick, it's best approached with caution, especially for those new to pipe smoking. So, savour this blend slowly and steadily, allowing its bold flavours to captivate your senses and leave a lasting impression.
