Project: Lakeland

Last week, Adam stole me from my office during the middle of the day. He had a wild look about him, most notably around the eyes, his lips were pursed and his breath was eager. In his left hand he grasped a pair of Stanwell pipes, one of which he nearly violently handed to me. I know Adam well enough to translate this manner of behavior: he had for us a project.

We rushed downstairs from my office to our store, Low Country Pipe & Cigar, where we began to scan rapidly the great wall of jarred tobacco. Adam made it pretty clear rather quickly that we were after something in particular. We were looking for that ‘Lakeland Essence’. After sniffing every jar of Gawtih & Hoggarth tobacco in the shop, Adam decided that we were to fill our Stanwells with a bowl of Ennerdale Flake. The tobacco description goes so:

Predominately Virginia leaf from Brazil, Zimbabwe and Malawi (86%) but with the addition of sun cured Malawi (10%) to add sweetness, strength and to cool the smoke and Malawi Burley (4%) to "carry the flavor" in addition to its cooling and strength qualities. A background flavor of Almond is enhanced with the addition of fruit, vanilla, and the special 'Lakeland style' flavors to give this tobacco its distinctive aroma and taste.

The ‘Lakeland’ flavor has been described in various terms by many people. Some have called it floral or reminiscent of perfume while others have likened it to bar soap. I do get the soap comparison. Not cheap, supermarket soap, though, rather fancy French stuff one must buy per ounce. It’s an interesting flavoring that we found here nearly constitutes the entire backdrop of Ennerdale Flake. If you are looking to put your finger on the Lakeland taste, methinks this blend is a winner.

Re: Project: Lakeland
Ennerdale is great stuff. It seems to be the most scented of the GH flakes. Dark Flake Scented is another good one for the lakeland essence.

Re: Project: Lakeland
I smoked Ennerdale once. It still gives me the shivers thinking about that experience. I smoked about a third of a bowl and then just gave up. Almost no tobacco flavor came through, just soap, soap, soap. I confided the rest of thin to the garbage. The poor pipe I used in this experiment needed almost five bowls of other tobacco to get rid of the ghost. Brrr.

Re: Project: Lakeland
I fully agree with steverino, Ennerdale Flake is great stuff. The essence is floral, but to say that there is almost no tobacco flavor is an injustice. It definitely will ghost your pipe and if you like it as much as I do it will ghost four or five pipes, so what. Next on deck, Kendal Flake and Brown Flake scented.
