This selection of blended Burley and Virginias offers a mellow and creamy smoke from a medium density flake. With an added essence, the pipe smoker who derives pleasure from an easy to rub out flake will certainly enjoy Samuel Gawith's Kendal Cream Flake.

I'm coming back to this one with a new love after a several year hiatus. It's rich and (you guessed it) creamy with a very mild floral note (maybe rose?). The Virginia and Burley work mighty fine together to give you a very satisfying smoke. The nico... Read Moretine is a lover not a fighter, but it ain't no wimp either, if you push it, it will push you back. This one reminds me of the late, great Velvan Plug (RIP) so if some of you are mourning the loss of VP ya might want to check this one out. I can almost guarantee that you will like this one if you like VP. The floral note I mentioned is just that, floral, not perfumey, not soapy, just a nice rose-like top note that is far from overbearing. I just recently finished a tin that had at least 5 years of age on it and the flakes had wonderful bloom and had turned to a lovely dark brown color. I believe this one will cellar with grace and still come out tasting lovely. Come to think of it, this kind of reminds me of Erinmore Flake minus the fruity flavors, they both have a very similar floral casing with a nice base of Virginia and Burley tobaccos.
This stuff is really becoming a favorite of mine and I agree with those who describe it as tasting like tea with milk and honey with a splash of rose water for good measure. This one doesn't get much hype in the forums and I'm okay with that, this is one of the few Gawith blends that is most always in stock.

Strong is in the taste of the smoker. To me this is a medium strength tobacco. I am on my third bowl today and each successive bowl has been a little better.

This flake yo-yos back and forth between Va and Burley. Va's take center stage with a rich flavor, with an intermission in the middle of the bowl of nutty and chocolately burley. As this flake closes out in the final part of the bowl, the burley subs... Read Moreides into the background of a carmelized Va taste. The smoke is luxurious and creamy.

So this is the (in)famous Lakeland essense? For some reason I've always associated this scent with Latakia. It also makes me remember my father in law, Don't know what he smoked but some of it was strong with lakeland. I enjoy the interplay betwe...

It makes it more difficult to light and keep lit but seems to do wonders for the flavor. Read Less
This is a typical lakeland tobacco. Its for hard core pipesters. Its terrific stuff but not for everyone. Its strong (not insanely strong like brown Irish twist say) but still strong. Slow burning and just a great 19th century style tabac.
