Gawith Hoggarth & Co. - Ennerdale Flake
Doesn’t really smell like grandmas’ perfume, or soap. Does have a unique floral note and a pleasant taste in the pipe. It will ghost a pipe a little bit, not too much though. Best flavor is with a clean dedicated bowl and it improves with time.
Sutliff - B30 Chocolate Mousse
This is what results when chocolate and black cavendish get together over drinks. Decent chocolate flavor til close to the end if you sip on the pipe and don’t scorch and hard draw. Chocolate mousse is one of the better chocolates out there, and while maybe not an all day smoke, its a great treat. Makes a great air freshener also. The wife keeps opening the jar for the ‘brownies baking’aroma in the room.
War Horse - Bar 1.75oz
Really nice tobacco
Has king of a lakeland quality to the flavor, a pleasant aroma with a good flavor hinting at a bit of chocolate, almond and a trace of vanilla, with a deep tobacco flavor and a good hit of nicotine. Not a crumble cake, but a minibrick of pressed flake and the way its cut is fantastic. All i need do is peel one or two strips of flake from the side and rub it out, Brick stays intact. Only a few relights, and it burns pretty much to the bottom with just a bit of moisture in the bowl. Definitely worth a rebuy!
G. L. Pease - Stonehenge Flake 2oz
Sampled right after opening the tin, aside from the top note, my impression was just another VA/PER. Giving it some air and jarring it for a couple days improved both the top note and the flavor. Burned pretty much to the bottom with just a couple of relights, flavor was steady to the end, and not a lot of moisture in the bottom. Wouldn’t call it a lakeland style but it is good. Would be worth a rebuy!
St. Bruno - Ready Rubbed 1.75oz
A good va/per
Has a unique top note, though not quite floral. Well worth smoking sip style, burns slow, has a good flavor, maybe a slight nutty hint along with the slightest touch of dried prune or fig.
