Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Bright CR Flake

100% pure virginia leaf with no additional flavours made from a blend of Brazilian, Zimbabwe and Malawi bright Virginia leaf. The pressed tobacco as with all flakes, is left to mature before cutting into flakes, to allow for the best combination of flavours.

I don't get the hype. I have tried this folded and stuffed, totally rubbed out, and broken. I allowed the tobacco to dry out considerably. Lights fine, but to me it tastes like rhubarb with no sugar. It didn't bite its just nasty to my palate which disappointed me because I love Gawith and Hoggarth flakes. And I wouldn't call it the lightest of their flakes, or creamy at all. I will cellar the rest of it and revisit it in a year or so. I guess I really don't enjoy super tangy Virginias. Oh and the room note smells like a stale, full ashtray.
