Samuel Gawith: Balkan Flake Burnt Ends 8oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-059-0097

Samuel Gawith's Balkan Flake Burnt Ends is a pipe tobacco literally made from the end cuts of the blending house's celebrated Balkan Flake mixture. During the blend's heat-pressing process, the ends of the tobacco become denser, caramelizing the natural sugars and marrying the flavors in a new profound way. The result is a flake that acts more like a plug providing flavors with a much more intense, smoky, aged profile that accentuates the complex, campfire-like essence of Latakia.

About Samuel Gawith Pipe Tobacco

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.

Product: Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake Burnt Ends 8oz
I find this burnt ends version much much sweeter than the regular flake. The mouthfeel is very oily and thick. It feels like smoking a caramelized version of Full Virginia flake with a healthy dose of Latakia. Very good!
