Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Bob's Chocolate Flake 50g

Product Number: 003-069-0004

The main characteristics of this flake come from the 8% Latakia included in the blend and the smooth chocolate aroma. Brazilian, Zimbabwe and Malawi Virginia leaf make up 82% of the blend providing a mellow/medium smoke cooled with the addition of 8% Malawi sun cured and 2% Malawi Burley. The Latakia cools but also adds strength and aroma. The cocoa casings and chocolate top flavors are rounded off with vanilla and other flavors providing sweet notes in this very unique and popular blend from Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.

Even though a piper of twenty-some years, smoking mostly English and Balkan blends, I was not prepared for the wonderful mysteries that awaited me i nthis blend. Intriguing!

This tobacco is surprisingly sweet and taste like a chocolate cake. It took me a little while to figure out how it burns.. it is a slow burner and you have to use your tamp a little to keep it burning. The hint of latakia is nice. Sometimes it is hea... Read More

This flake is absolutely delicious, sweet, creamy with the cocoa and just a hint of smoky latakia and maybe a very slight amount of floral essence makes this a very tasty smoke for me. Edit: This flake is quite moist, I suggest rubbing out this fla... Read More

This one nails it. This is the better option of the two, in my opinion. The chocolate topping is really nice without over powering the tobacco and the same can be said for the Latakia - just a hint.

A consistent smoke from bowl to bowl. Smooth without biting. The "under" flavor is subtle and doesn't overwhelm you. Thoroughly enjoyable.

这款草到手后用过几把烟斗认真品吸,醒草时间长,燃烧很慢,巧克力香味很浓郁,L草作为轻轻点缀,起到点睛之笔,劲道让人满意约3.0的劲道,层次变化不多,香气表现稳定,属于微调拉草,这样的调配功力的确很棒!

Flavouring from the tobacco types are what makes this a 3 star review. Additional flavouring added are less then subtle, vanilla being most noticeable, other than the soapy taste. I could only faintly taste chocolate every once in a while. UPDATE.... Read More

I purchased this after reading reviews and looking for a chocolate tobacco. This tobacco contains just enough latakia to add a tad bit smokiness. The dark semi-sweey chocolate lasts by tempered smoking, meaning a slight draw and puff. I was surpri... Read More

I think the Lakeland flavor kept this from being excellent for me, but it burns long, has a good nic hit, and is surprisingly tasty in terms of the flavoring for such strong leaf.

Tin aroma is chocolate, cocoa, and Latakia with a hint of the Lakeland essence. The flavor is tobacco that is deep and rich with notes of chocolate, cocoa, with a light hint of Lakeland. This is a great blend!
Awesome!

I really wanted to like this - You get a faint hint of a neutral cocoa flavor, but it is mostly hidden by the soapy Lakeland aroma & flavor. It is not bad tobacco, but the lakeland soap just kills what would otherwise be a great tasting blend
Like smoking a dark chocolate brownie.

As a novice pipe smoker of 3 years, I had to try this. And as I was told I got a big dose of the 'Lakeland Aroma', a floral taste that is more akin to licking a bar of Zest soap. The soapy taste popped up throughout the bowl. I could taste no choc... Read More

Found this flake to exhibit a rather dark taste and musty room note. The chocolate is very subtle. If this is an example of the "Lakeland Aroma" then it is definitely not my thing.Glad I only bought an ounce to try.
