Description

A full-strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark fired Tanzanian Virginia and Kentucky leaf, this is Gawith’s best selling premium grade flake. Rich, with an earthy, leather flavour that is velvety smooth with a sweet side thanks to the added Tonquin.
It starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake acquires the characteristic rich, dark colour. Its hardening occurs during cooling. The flake is then cut and a Tonquin flavour added.
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.
