Kendal Flake is a stronger tobacco with light side proportions of 68% Virginia and a dark side of nearly 1/3, including 16% dark-cured Indian leaf, provide a medium strength smoke. The dominant flavor is one of scented almond and this complex top note is achieved by the combination of over 10 different flavors from Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.

A lovely dark flame. Classic Lakeland tobacco. Deep earthy tobacco with a very mild floral rose essence on the back end. Nice room note and one that those around you can enjoy.

My 500g box came to me with the most beautiful plume, to hold a flake in your hands and know that it was exactly the same a century ago as it is now is really something!

I cut it with sharp scissors into .25 inch pieces I smoked it steady for 30 min. before relighting. In my mind this is a classic English Lakeland flake that I would highly recommend, Nic -Hit medium, nice room note. A true English Classic! Also thanks Kas W for recommending it to me!!!! Read Less
I think DK said it perfectly so I don't have much to say that he didn't already touch on, I just came to express my love. This one took a long time to work it's magic on me but I'm glad that I didn't give up on it. The flavors added read a lot like a... Read Moren Eau De Toilet and shouldn't work on a pipe tobacco but it absolutely does. This is a refreshing smoke and would probably work better in the warmer months but I have no problem smoking it year round. The top dressing adds a high range of notes that dance with the lower notes to give the smoker an amazing range of flavors to focus on and this one surely demands your focus. Could be an all day smoke for sure but I'm one that needs variety throughout the day.

I smoked about half of what I ordered and had to put it aside. It smoked very hot and harsh, leaving a bitter taste in my mouth. The pouch note/Mason jar note is sweet and pleasant enough, but it doesn't seem to transfer well to any of my pipes. I'll...

I love Gawith and Hoggarth tobacco, and know they put out quality products laced with deep tradition. This flake crumbles and well and doesn't feel too moist or dry. The tin aroma is enticing with Lakeland notes. Burn is superb; I didn't have to reli... Read Moreght it once. I always try to remove my expectation of a tobacco from my objective analysis, otherwise things get cloudy. While I had a different expectation for the flavour of this tobacco, it was nonetheless of good quality, and is one I would smoke again. I just find that in comparison to the other G&H tobaccos, the flavour of Kendal Flake is not as rich. I found it to be monotonous, but still an enjoyable flake to smoke. Read Less
Really nice lakeland flake. Not as strong or sharp as the Scented Dark Flake; has much rounder, softer flavours with an almost anesthetic quality. Finish is sweet and toasty. Burns very well. Prefer this over a few others (Scented Dark Flake, Grasmer... Read Moree Flake). Lovely! Right up there with Ennerdale and Bob's Choc! Read Less
