Gawith Hoggarth's Dark Flake is a popular tobacco among those who a full smoking experience, in both body and flavour. Comprised of fired and dark air cured Virginias, before being hot pressed in cakes (uncut plug). The Unscented version (U/S) is popular in both flake and plug form, but as with all tobaccos from Gawith & Hoggarth, they can be flavoured. This “aromatic” blend is given a traditional “British” topping which consists of tonquin, maple and liquorice.
As you would expect with the Dark Flake, this tobacco is powerful with a strong spicy and musky flavour. The toppings enhance the almost cigar like flavour and bring a little brightness into play. This slowly fades as you make your way through the bowl, leaving the final half more a natural taste. Dark Flake packs a real punch in the nicotine department and we not suggested for those new to pipe smoking.
