Samuel Gawith: Sam's Flake 50g

Product Number: 003-059-0033

Samuel Gawith was the son-in-law of Thomas Harrison, a snuff manufacturer who moved his trade and equipment to Kendal, Cumbria, England from Scotland in 1792. Gawith inherited this equipment from Harrison, and the company has been crafting premium tobacco since, with one of Samuel's two sons continuing the brand while the other joined with Henry Hoggarth to establish Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Though offering separate blends, both brands remain forever linked and still share the same manufacturing facility in England's Lake District, utilizing processes and techniques that date to the brands' 1792 roots. In many of their mixtures, Samuel Gawith maintains the standards enforced by the United Kingdom's strict purity laws of the 19th and 20th centuries — such laws dictating how much and what type of flavorings could be added to pipe tobacco and ensuring that sub-quality leaf wasn't hidden under the veil of exorbitant toppings.

The Kendal Mayor's Collection of pipe tobaccos honors Samuel Gawith as the former mayor of Kendal. Sam's Flake combines flue-cured Virginias and Orientals that are pressed in a hot oven before being topped with a touch of tonquin, providing an enticing room note and that signature, Lakeland aroma.

劲道3.0 饱满度3.0 室韵 3.2 国内认知度较低。初段的O草带来了比较强烈的口腔和鼻腔的刺激感,甜度较低,有烤面包香味和淡淡的奶油味;中段以后渐入佳境,鼻口腔的刺激感逐渐减弱,口腔中的甜美感不断爬升,绵密而又明亮的莓果甜味让人一口接一口欲罢不能。一直到尾段,甜味一直在爬升,口腔里残留着浓郁的莓果甜味和奶油味,非常舒服。和FVF比,变化多了很多,烟气的感觉更偏明亮系。除了抽不明白的前段和略显高的斗温。这款草个人的评价会在FVF之上。V草爱好者一定要尝试一下! 欢迎去B站关注“躲在厕所抽斗的克... Read More

This flake has a light, sweet topping sometimes referred to as, "British flavoring." I liked it at first, but held off any conclusion until I finished a tin. It really grew on me. The smoke has a refined, balance of flavors, light, but n... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith Sam's Flake 50g that it’s not available in bulk. This is a lovely smoke. A well-blended VOr, if you like Virginia’s. The Oriental is decidedly not forward, but provides the kind of support that elevates this blend above even my fave Va’s. The topping does what... Read More

There must be some good reason this blending house attached its founder’s name to this blend. Though found in SG’s “Kendal Mayor’s Collection”, it might cause you to wonder if it has higher aspirations! This is more complex than SG’s Best Brown Fl... Read More

I was expecting a very mild, uneventful smoke here. It is a very smooth and enjoyable smoke. Great slow burning flake with fantastic flavor. The tonquin is very nicely applied and only compliments the tobacco flavor.

The tin note reminded me of opening a brand new pouch of Red Man chewing tobacco. Smelled great! Typical Soggy Samuel Gawith. After more than an hour of drying on the kitchen counter, it burned HOT!! Bit my tongue. Just prior to setting my mout... Read More

先说优点:1.烟气相当的柔和,可以说没有任何杂气,不管是从开始还是到最后,没有一丝丝杂气. 2.甜度是随着时间慢慢上升,但是不会让人体会到腻的感觉,很清爽很舒服的甜. 缺点:1.这草湿度太大,不好燃烧,容易灭火 2.这草很奇怪,不能太干了去抽,太干了抽会有非常非常辛辣的口感.所以想享受此草的朋友,必须忍受湿度比较大,经常灭火
Virginias, Orientals and tonka bean flavour.

On opening the tin, an intense scent of hay and grass from Virginia greets you. Absolutely no whiff of Orientals, nor of any flavouring. Neatly arranged flake straps of yellow and brown colour, with very few black sparkles. Moisture in tin is unexpec... Read More

Deep dark flavors of dark fruit and raisins combine with woody and spicy Orientals. A wonderful mélange of flavors that are married by the light floral topping. A wonderful tobacco
