Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
I am from Louisiana and this blend reminds me of home. Just the right pairing of sweet raisin notes with a fair amount of heat. As VaPer's go, this is a beauty. I could go for some more heat in this blend but that may be because I am a Louisianan.
Outstanding

Reminds me of Dunbar with its sweet, figgy aroma. A bit on the moist side out of the tin. Needs drying to be able to smoke without an abundance of relights. Highly recommended.

Ordered it because i heard so much about it. outstanding rich and deep tones in the smoke. doesnt come on right away either. i tend to puff away and this one shouldnt be rushed--but savored. it will reward you for that. fruity in a deep way--raisin... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
Delicious tin nose of fermented Virginia and fruity Perique. As always with Samuel Gawith, the tobacco in tin is soaking wet. A nuisance! First of all I take theses dark brown and thick flake straps, rub them out roughly, spread it on a plate and let... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 250g
Cold very pleasant aroma, with hints of chocolate, leather, plum and a touch of coffee. Invites burn slowly in a medium pipe. Perique, with a touch some pepper, adorns a somewhat creamy and very tasty smoke. VAPER is necessary to have wide collection... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
This flake is like a drug sometimes. You hit the sweet spot and you will chase that experience everytime. Dark, brooding and utterly fantastic. I usually rub out or 1/4 inch strips and stuff. Always satisfies if done right.
Age It!!!!

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
After my first smoke of this flake I was left wondering why it was in such short supply and loved by many. A fellow pipe smoker told me to jar it up and forget about it. It ages like it's on "steroids" so he claims. After only 3 months of p... Read More

Very tart, almost sour
November 22, 2018
Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 250g
Yes, the spicyness from the perique leaves are there, but maybe a tad in excess as the tartness almost becomes sourness. It's still very sweet and grassy, with a noticeable earthy, musty tone.
Beautiful Surprise

I knew I had Something special when I took the first whiff of the tin. Dates, fig, pepper and wet hay... awesome tin aroma that was unlike any Va/Per I have smelled. The smoke is almost perfect, I did let it dry a bit before lighting. The same tin ar... Read More

Difference in bulk?
February 23, 2018
Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 250g
I'm scratching my head on the bulk purchase. The flakes were much lighter in color and the cut much thinner than the tinned version I have on hand. I tried a flake before splitting the box into two jars and putting it in the cellar, but it didn't hav... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
First off I should say that my opinion may be a little biased here as I have a lot of love for all blends Gawith. The Virginia they put out is of optimal quality and has a unique strong flavor due to whatever casing they use and the variety of Virgi... Read More
terrible bite
December 24, 2017
Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 250g
sweet, creamy, earthy, undoubtedly tasty, but the bite is just too strong for me. overly moist out of the bag, a bit difficult to find and pricey
Superb

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
There isn't much more to say about this blend that hasn't been said here already. Great right out of the tin. One of the best tin notes for a Va/Per. These flakes age better than any other blend I've ever purchased. By which I mean that the color,... Read More

핫프레스드 버지니아의 구수한 고질의 향에 적절한 페릭의 가미가 잘 조화된 최상의 연초입니다. 세손가락안의 페릭연초로 꼽습니다 숙성되면 어떨지 기대됩니다.

Definitely the prettiest flake you ever did see. Browns, marbled with black, and even cream (cross sections of leaf stems?). Tin note is wonderfully pungent, slightly acidic. It even had some sugar crystal blossoms, indicating it is well aged. I wa... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
This went straight into my regular rotation after the first tin I enjoyed it so much. True to S.G form, it comes out the tin very moist and requires some drying out but this isn't necessarily a bad thing as there's nothing worse than opening a tin/p... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 250g
This stuff is well-deserving of its reputation... both the good and the bad. When you hit it, it's complex, deep, almost frightening and brooding, with a sweetness that entices you back into the swamp. But it's inconsistent, and very difficult to wo... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
Wow, does this have a lot of sugar casing. I bet it's great tobacco underneath but I can't tell. Also one of the wettest flakes that I've encountered. Maybe my tin got too much mountain dew sauce at the factory. All that said, Sam G makes excellent t... Read More
Good

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
This blend was a good break from my normal routine smokes. The sweet va's interplay with the spicy perique rather nicely. Full bodied, yet simple and refined. Took some drying time. Good smoke and didn't taste dirty.
Great stuff!

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
Smoking this for the first time right now; I'm blown away! Lots of pepper and fruit flavors, mildly sweet, and burns very cool. I let the flake dry for an hour and a half, it probably could have used a little more drying time but I couldn't wait any ... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
I've tried multiple VaPers, and this is among the best. I smoked it right out of the tin with no drying time. Lighting was a bit of a challenge but once it got going it burned evenly. It began with the taste of Virginias, sweet and mellow, and then t... Read More

Thanks to St James Parish Louisiana for this spicy but smooth Perique. And Samuel Gawith for the masterful blend. It does need a little airing out as it is fairly moist when first opened. Can't speak to aging it as it is never around long enough at m... Read More

I use this to rest from University Flake, it's a good medium Virginia. They say there's Perique here... kidding! Of course tastes a bit different from pure Va and I like it (I love Va). But if you're at the stage where you want to know how Perique t... Read More

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
Similar to Full Virginia Flake but with the addition of Perique. Burns cool but tastes spicy, St. James flake is an excellent blend and is considered by many to be a benchmark Virginia/Perique.

Product: Samuel Gawith St. James Flake 50g
I affectionately refer to this blend as 'The Hammer' as it vastly eclipses just about every other VaPer I've come across. Samuel Gawith has really changed the game with their expertise in creating full flavoured, full bodied virginia flakes applied ... Read More
