Scottish Autumn Pipe Tobacco by Samuel Gawith has the natural ripeness of the long-pressed Virginias. Along with the slow-burn this makes Scottish Autumn a most suitable flake for smoking on its own, or blending with other tobaccos.

Taste: Mild

Strength: Medium

This is probably one of the easiest reviews I have ever written.

Virginia, mostly gold and light brown, pressed into coarse flake: check.

Nose is sweet and mildly honeyed: check.

Composition is perfect, easily rubbed out and lit: check.

And then just a beautiful wave of ripe, smooth, sweet Virginia flavour of the highest order. Simple and yet magnificent; simply magnificent?

Samuel Gawith have done it again, a must-try for all true Virginia lovers.

Highly recommended.

Upon opening it appears very similar to their "winter flake" in the construction and aroma . The flakes hold the right amount of moisture and wont require drying out any further . It rubs easily and packs well too . The initial light is easy and it burns slowly /steadily all the way through . The smoke is of a nice thickness with a good Virginia taste which is noticeable in the room note and very little bite to it . Also a good Nicotine level ( for me ) as not too much or too little . In all , a real nice flake with similarities to their Winter Flake .

Typical lemon to bronze colored flakes with a tin note of basic fine Virginia. Easy to fold or rub out, with no excessive drying time needed. I did transfer the contents to a ziplock after I noticed the tobacco drying rather quickly in the opened tin.

This is almost a BBF-meets-Dunhill Light Flake for me. The slight honey fruitiness of Light Flake and the robust tang and maturity of BBF, with its mellow darkness and rich flavor. Sam Gawith is the McClellands of the UK, with Virginias unparalleled by their competitors. They taste different but they are uniformly excellent. This one is no exception. It starts off sweet and mildly tangy with that slight honey and light fruit combo and then ascend to more robust territory, with that SG "zing" that BBF and FVF contain. This more leans more toward the mature and mellow of BBF rather than the boisterous earthy character of FVF. Not as complex as BBF but a bit more so than the Dunhill, the combination of the two brings the Dunhill closer to my wheelhouse. But not nearly as closely as BBF, which is one of my mainstays. This will be an occasional smoke but should be tried by all straight Virginia aficionados. It might just be the perfect one for someone.

This is the 4th of the Four Seasons line that I have tried. As with all the others in the series, this one is of a high quality leaf. This one comes at the right moisture level to smoke right out of the tin, no drying time needed here. YMMV of course. The thin flakes are easy to break up and stuff into the pipe. It lights easily and stays lit with hardly any effort. The nicotine level is about right in the middle of the road. You may detect a slight sweetness to this, but hardly anything that would come close to being cloying in any way. Sit back and reach for the bottle of Scotch and you will have yourself a fine smoking experience. Highly recommended whenever you can get your hands on a tin or two.

What a delectable flake this is, a blend of light and dark Virginia's with a very mild topping that definately includes chocolate. A mildishly sweet but full smoke with no bite is what I got, highly recommended.

A just-ok VA flake, slightly sweet. Requires only a bit of drying, and lights ok.

I find it lacking, though, compared to other VAs. The flavor is mediocre and somewhat thin. I just can't think of why I would buy this again over other better VA choices, hence two stars for it's rank relative to better VAs.
