Gawith Hoggarth & Co.: Rum Flake 50g

Product Number: 003-069-0007

The 'Christmas cake' of all tobaccos, Rum Flake by Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. is a very rich, sweet fully flavored blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured tobaccos in the blend - over 40%. Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from Burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a rich, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum.

Rum Flake (YUM)

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
In the tin aroma, I pick up on rum, licorice, and vanilla as well as some tang from the Virginias. The flavor is very complex and is accompanied by the Lakeland essence. This is a great smoke if you enjoy the Lakeland tobaccos. It can bite if pushed ... Read More
Very Pleasant Smoke

I found this blend to be very enjoyable, complex and not sweet in the least. It is not as easily to light, but once lit it burned very nicely. I recommend it!
My Favorite Rum-Topped Flake

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
I've enjoyed Rum Flake very much, especially when it's been aged. It has a wonderfully complex natural tobacco flavor with subtle notes of dark rum, and is not overly sweet in the least. GH&Co. makes blends with strong and complex flavor profiles—Rum... Read More
Very Strong

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
As mentioned below, this is a great blend with a scrumptious tin-note, but the raw smokey meatiness of the tobacco does tend to leave the note in the tin. I get almost none of the essence in the smoke. As with most, there is a puff or two where I c... Read More

Very Nice Tobacco

Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
For me it is very earthy...with hints of spice. I did not get much rum from it, but it is a smooth smoke. A little strong, but not overbearing. One I will definitely purchase again.
One You Should Experience
June 04, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
I believe a slow smoking cadence is best suited to bring out the subtleties in this rather delicate blend. It arrives in a nice somewhat broken flake form and is very easy to break up and light. A very pleasant and rich fruity taste with hints of spi... Read More
A Dilemma - Great Tobacco, But....
May 29, 2015
Product: Gawith Hoggarth & Co. Rum Flake 50g
This is a high-quality tobacco with a wonderful, rich tin note. Once lit, though, the sheer strength of the flavor overwhelms whatever rum/maple flavors may be in there. I've experienced the same problem with Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Rum Twist. I... Read More
