Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Rum Flake 50g

Product Number: 003-069-0007

The 'Christmas cake' of all tobaccos, Rum Flake by Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. is a very rich, sweet fully flavored blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured tobaccos in the blend - over 40%. Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from Burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a rich, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum.

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake Bulk
Great first of the morning smoke, works very well with a good hot cup of strong coffee. Not a complex smoke more straight forward than some of G&H's other blends, It has a very alluring scent and nice room note. Nic-Hit one step less than medium with... Read More
Rum Flake (YUM)
September 16, 2018
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
In the tin aroma, I pick up on rum, licorice, and vanilla as well as some tang from the Virginias. The flavor is very complex and is accompanied by the Lakeland essence. This is a great smoke if you enjoy the Lakeland tobaccos. It can bite if pushed ... Read More

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake Bulk
Bulk purchase. Sweet smelling flake. Hints of maple. Rubbed out this burns forever. I have not tried fold and stuff method yet. I do not get any Lakeland essence as some have indicated it is there. This could be an all day smoke
really nice smoke to have around.

I don’t smoke this often but when I do I am always glad I did. I tend to not like the “Lakeland Essence” either but in this case the Rum and maple go really well with it. Like written bellow the maple shows more later. This is a really nice smoke to ... Read More
My Favorite GH&Co. Flake
January 29, 2018
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake Bulk
GH makes some extremely high quality blends, and they have a well-deserved reputation. Because I don't like the Lakeland essence very much, I've often avoided GH. However, this flake is markedly different than the others I've had. It's rich with thos... Read More
My Favorite Rum-Topped Flake
August 09, 2017
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
I've enjoyed Rum Flake very much, especially when it's been aged. It has a wonderfully complex natural tobacco flavor with subtle notes of dark rum, and is not overly sweet in the least. GH&Co. makes blends with strong and complex flavor profiles—Rum... Read More

A fine flake with a rich flavor, not to be confused with the over-done impact of some rum-intensive blends. The aroma is that of a gourmet fruit cake.
Not my cup of tea

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
In fact tea to a coffee drinker is a great way to describe this tobacco. There is nothing wrong with it having the grassy and yeast bread flavors of the Virginia in the background but it’s bland to someone who prefers more flavorful choices. The nico... Read More
Very Pleasant Smoke

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
I found this blend to be very enjoyable, complex and not sweet in the least. It is not as easily to light, but once lit it burned very nicely. I recommend it!
Tasty and satisfying

This flake has become one of my go-to tobaccos during those times when I'm not quite sure which mix I want to smoke next (if I had my way I'd smoke nothing else but Gawith & Hoggarth twists, but my current supply level as well as high cost thanks to ... Read More
Very Strong
January 25, 2017
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
As mentioned below, this is a great blend with a scrumptious tin-note, but the raw smokey meatiness of the tobacco does tend to leave the note in the tin. I get almost none of the essence in the smoke. As with most, there is a puff or two where I c... Read More

I am smoking this fully rubbed out,in a properly filled pipe,so there's plenty of air flow around the strands of tobacco.I gave it no drying time,and it stays lit with no problems.The flavor stays pretty much the same throughout the smoking.This one ... Read More

Very Nice Tobacco
September 29, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
For me it is very earthy...with hints of spice. I did not get much rum from it, but it is a smooth smoke. A little strong, but not overbearing. One I will definitely purchase again.
Yep, It's a Lakeland
July 26, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake Bulk
I had high hopes for this blend. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfectly acceptable and unoffensive smoke, even for a non-aromatic smoker. Casing is barely detectable at all. I'm just not a fan of the "Lakeland essence," which is featured prom... Read More
One You Should Experience
June 04, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
I believe a slow smoking cadence is best suited to bring out the subtleties in this rather delicate blend. It arrives in a nice somewhat broken flake form and is very easy to break up and light. A very pleasant and rich fruity taste with hints of spi... Read More
A Dilemma - Great Tobacco, But....
May 29, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
This is a high-quality tobacco with a wonderful, rich tin note. Once lit, though, the sheer strength of the flavor overwhelms whatever rum/maple flavors may be in there. I've experienced the same problem with Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Rum Twist. I... Read More
Great smoke not my favorite

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake Bulk
This is one of the best smoking flakes I have tried but I did not like the taste. It smoked cool and had no bite but it will need to age in my cellar for a while.
