Product: Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake 250g
다른연초들은 접하지않아도 이해된다고 본다. 하지만 이연초는 분명 담배의 기본적인 부분이 아주 충실한 연초이다. 화학적 설탕이 주는 달달함이 아닌 자연이 주는 아주 조금씩 올라오는 달달함에 혀가 춤을 춘다. 그래서 이연초는 나의 주식이 되어버렷다. 아마도 한국에 있는 고수또한 이연초를 즐기지않는 사람은 없다고 본다. 계속 나오길 바란다

Classic Samuel Gawith, very thick and wet flakes with some crystallization. Once properly dried out, this tobacco smokes like a dream, with in my opinion, just the right amount of sweetness. I see why tins of this sell out as quickly as they do, trul... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake 50g
The tin nose is an intriguing, deep, natural, tobacco flavour. This blend is dark brown Virginias with some sparkles of yellow Virginias. The flake straps are quite thick and stiff, not made to cram in your pipe directly, they need to be rubbed out t... Read More

There's a very good reason why this is one of SmokingPipes best sellers - it's a very good deep flavored virginia. However, it is very difficult to smoke. McCelland's Blackwoods is easier to pack and smoke and is preferable to this. However, this ... Read More
Basic hot pressed virginia.

Product: Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake 50g
어려운 연초다. 핫프레스더 연초의 기본이나 불 지피기도 불유지도 스킬이 필요하다. 잘피우면 황홀한 맛이 나지만 조금만 방심하면 불만 부치다 만다. 맛을 느끼기 시작하면 빠져든다. 스킬이 되면 너무도 훌륭한 연초고 부족하면 나쁜 연초가된다. 묵히면 또 어떨지 궁금해서 주문을 또하게 된다.

The box version of Full Virginia Flake is excellent. The taste is somewhat strong but smooth. The taste will benefit from slow puffing but it doesn't bite if you freight train your pipe. It needs a little drying time like every Samuel Gawith product.... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake 50g
It requires more drying than anything I've ever smoked. I live in a humid area, so I just open a tin and leave it out for a few days. At a level best called crispy, though, it's a delicious mix of grassy with a bit of sweet.

几年以来共买了不少于100个FVF 250g,目睹它的质量从优秀逐渐沦为平凡。切片越来越厚,烟叶梗的大量增加,发酵时间不足够......假如你打算长时间保存就可以让它变得美味,那么我告诉你“放弃吧”,由于先天的不足,就算你放上几年,它都不会有太大的改善。生产厂家追求产量,降低质量在这里得到了充分体现。

A masterful blend by Samuel Gawith. Rich and strong natural tobacco taste. No bite, just a nice spicy pepper tingle in your mouth. Medium to high nicotine hit. No bad aftertaste FVF always leaves me fully satisfied every time, one of my favorites..

A very mild and pleasant smoke, with just a little kick. It will need some drying out, and for those unfamiliar with flake tobacco: it will need some work to get it into a "smoke-able" texture.

This makes most pipe smokers top five list. I've smoked pounds of it and find that at three to five years of age it's at it's peak. Stock up if you can. It goes like a $100 LED TV on Black Friday.

Full Virginia Flake is an extremely pleasant smoke, a wonderful place to visit a few times per week when time allows the opportunity to truly savor the experience. This is definitely a tobacco to be treasured and savored in relative moderation.

Dark and strong but slightly sweet. This is one of Samuel Gawith's most sought-after blend and for good reason. It tastes good, burns nicely, ages well, and is immensely satisfying.
